Daytime Confidential #191: Thom Racina Interview
On today's show we have an Exclusive Interview with Thom Racina, the author and Emmy nominated former daytime writer responsible for General Hospital's Ice Princess storyline and Luke & Laura's wedding. We talk about what it was like to work during that groundbreaking time, his experiences as a writer under Gloria Monty and what it was like to write the scenes for Elizabeth Taylor's famous Helena Cassadine appearance.
After leaving General Hospital Racina moved to Days of Our Lives where he was responsible for creating the characters of Steve Johnson (aka Patch) and John Black and wrote the wedding of Bo and Hope.
We also talk about his experiences as Writer at Another World, what our Writers Strike today is like in comparison to what he went through while writing for the soaps, his personal knowledge of how Brad Pitt got his start, his advice for would be soap writers or aspiring authors, what he is doing now, and would he ever come back to daytime if asked.
We know you'll love today's show so put in your earbuds, turn on your ipod and enjoy.
