Actor Jed Allan who currently plays Edward Quartermaine on General Hospital has spent decades working on soaps like Santa Barbara, Days Of Our Lives and Port Charles and is pleased that the writing, the acting; everything is more sophisticated these days.
Luckily for him, so are the fans.
Back in the old days, Allan says it was common for actors to be accosted by fans who didnt like the actions of their characters.
It still happens but not as much these days and Allan says thats because the modern couch potato is able to discern the difference between fantasy and reality.
Still, there are some times when that doesnt happen. Allan laughs that Santa Barbara was so popular in Russia that, as he puts it, they actually think Im a big star.
Allan has a successful career as an actor but hes stretching out in other fields. Hes just written an autobiography, Please Spell The Name Right: A Memoir From A Former Young Stud...Now An Old One (McKenna Publishing).
