1. What was it like to reunite with Teresa Castillo when you saw her in In The Heights?

I loved seeing Teresa it was so special because I had not seen her for a while. It was really cool to see her perform on such a big stage and hear how pretty she sings- she was amazing. It was a really great show

2. What was the best part of shooting for Discount Dance again this year?

I love working at Discount Dance so much especially because I shop there for all of my dance clothes and shoes! They are so nice & love getting my hair & makeup done and seeing all of the new styles:)

3. How did you enjoy shooting for 686?

This was fun because I was modeling snow boarding & ski clothes! Really cool company and the photographer and director were just so nice. I can’t wait to see how all of the pictures turn out!

4. What was you shoot for Soffe like?

I loved working for Soffe . They had really cute athletic wear and the crew on set was so sweet.

5. What was the experience like working for Under Armour?

This was probably one of my Dads favorite shoots because I got to play soccer! We got to wear cool clothes and play with other girls while they were getting their action shots! Plus it was part of a campaign Called “She Plays we win” empowering girls To be strong and confident with a really good message:)

6. How do you react when you get the call that GH is bringing you back for more episodes?

It is the best feeling ever! I love my GH family so much and really grew up with them since I was in Pre-school. I always hope to go back anytime and would love for Emma to move-in with her Grandma Anna!

7. What was the best part of filming for Maxie and Nathan’s wedding?

Getting to wear a beautiful dress and play around with the girls on set. The very best part Was when I got to work with Kimberly -it is always the best day ever!

8. What was it like working with Scarlett and Lily?

Both of the girls were just so sweet and it was kind of weird that so was the older one in the group. Usually I was the younger one but it was fun to help little Lilly feel really comfortable on set since it was her first day!

9. How did you enjoy attending the GH Fan Weekend again this year?

I love being a part of the Fan weekend. It always feels so special To hear how so many people love Emma and see how many fans support GH. It really has been the biggest blessing in my life to play Emma!

Hmmmm.. I have a lot of ideas! But I think Emma needs to maybe help solve some crimes with her Grandma- she has the spy gene!!!!!

Is there anything else you’d like to add?

Yes, thank you to everyone who has supported me through the years! I am very grateful and feel very blessed to share these amazing adventures with you all!

It’s Christmas!

Jude and Ozzy McGuigan play the role of Christian on The Young and The Restless. This year they have been busy working on the soap.

1. How did Jude and Ozzy enjoy dressing up for the Halloween episode?

It was a little tricky to get them into the costumes but then they liked running around with Gunner and Ryder and yelling “I robot! I bad guy!” Plus, there was a lot of candy on set that day, that is always a nice treat for them.

2. How do you pass time with the boys between scenes

I always bring another adult and we tend to keep the boys separated once the “work” time starts. The working twin has quiet activities like books or a puzzle, or we take a walk around the sets and look at the new scenery. The waiting twin I usually keep active- walking or running the long hallway outside the sets or even a little walk outside. That way if we have to switch, the one that’s been waiting is (hopefully!) ready to sit still and quiet for taping.

3. What is a typical work day like at the studio for them?

If things are running right on schedule then I just get one (or both) of them dressed and ready. If there’s time before their scenes they love to visit the school room and play a bit in there (especially if it’s a day Aly is on set!). If it’s going to be awhile before they tape I like to take them outside in the fresh air and then get into costume closer to their scene. They’re two, so even with double the wardrobe I tend to wait, because they really are great at getting messy. The stage manager comes up when they are one scene away and we go down for rehearsal. Then they tape, rehearse, tape, etc. I always bring way more food and snacks just in case I need to keep them occupied. If there are other kids working that day we all kind of hang out together.

4. Are any of the cast able to tell the boys apart?

Yes, Joshua can definitely tell them apart. Their personalities are pretty different! The crew can usually tell too.

5. Have they ever been recognized in public for being on Y&R?

Not yet!

6. How do the boys enjoy working with Ryder and Gunner Gadbois?

They look up to them- Jude especially is fascinated by older boys and trying to get in on whatever action they have going. We’ve been working the same days with them a lot- they’re a great family.

7. What is it like filming with Joshua Morrow?

He’s like the toddler whisperer. He’s got a very easy, natural way of being that all the kids respond to. Ozzy in particular is very fond of him, and no matter how fussy he has been throughout the day, once we get to set, I know I can pass him off to Joshua and he’ll turn into the chillest kid. Both the twins love him.

8. What is the best part of working with Melissa Claire Egan?

She is so great with kids, so kind, and warm. Even when she is primarily holding “Connor” she has an intuitive way of bringing the boys together. She makes them look like a family.

9. Is there anyone in the cast they haven’t gotten to work with yet that you’d like to see them film with?

I love when they work with Christian’s extended family- Melissa Ordway and Amelia Heinle have been so incredibly nice. And I wouldn’t mind working with Sharon again- the twins really connected to her.

10. Do you have a favorite episode Jude and Ozzy have done this year?

This year has been much quieter than last year- more sweet family scenes, not so much drama. But it’s always a fun day on set.

Is there anything else you’d like to add?

We just feel incredibly lucky to be a part of the Y&R family. We couldn’t ask for a better cast, crew, or fans!

3. What was the best part of being on set again for General Hospital?

This was so cool because I got to play a friend of Charlotte’s and I loved my name Bailey! I loved being a part of Shriners Hospital Episode and working with some of the girls who have scoliosis like my character.

We had so much fun and got to be really silly and play together before they called action! One scene we were giggling the whole time but we got right back into the scene when it started!

They were both really nice and I had met Emme before when I would go with my sister to set when she worked. They are pretty funny too.

Everything! We had so much fun. Playing around and being silly on set in the grocery store. She would hang out with me in between takes and I am thankful I was able to share some special scenes with Grace.

9. What was it like to film with Alex O’Loughlin?

Always fun! He has a really cool accent that I didn’t know because on the show he doesn’t! He always made me laugh and I loved being able to spend time with him during our scenes especially the Aloha Girl cookie scenes.

10. Do you have a favorite episode you got to do during your time on Hawaii 5-0?

It would have to be my very first episode. It was such a big and exciting and crazy episode! It is when the show met Sara and learned she was Chins Niece! Plus I got to fly to Hawaii for the first time and stay for 8 days!

Is there anything else you’d like to add?

I am so grateful for such an exciting year! Thank you for all of your support and all of your kind words- my Mom let’s me know!
