The late Jeanne Cooper’s work ethics never ceased to amaze her colleagues. Days of Our Lives firecracker Elieen Davidson recently chatted with We Love Soaps and discussed how Cooper always brought her A-game while the two were on The Young and the Restless. Here's an excerpt:
WE LOVE SOAPS: We recently lost daytime legend Jeanne Cooper. Could you share some thoughts on what it was like to work with her?
EILEEN DAVIDSON: She was really an amazing person...never complained...had the same call times and working just as much as we all were. I remember I was working with her in a storyline just a couple of years ago and we were in a hospital scene at 9 o'clock at night. She had a big monologue and somebody mentioned she had just turned 80. I knew she had just had a birthday but I thought she turned 70. I was like, "You've got to be kidding me." I will never complain about anything again. She was just that good, and that humble about everything. She was also a stinker, very funny, very raunchy woman, and really just a joy to work with.

Lee Phillip Bell and Michael Maloney's biography of the late William J. Bell has now been released on paperback. Fans of the legendary soap scribe can learn all about the co-creator of Another World, The Young and the Restless and The Bold and the Beautiful in the pages of The Young and Restless Life of William J. Bell.
I hope soap fans enjoy the The Young and Restless Life of William J. Bell. It's a chronicle of Bill and Lee's inspiring life together -- how they met, fell in love, followed their dreams, and built a soap opera empire along the way. There's much of Bill's philosophies on serialized storytelling in the book and untold anecdotes from the golden age of soap operas. READ MORE
