"When I first came back to New York, when I talked to anybody about soap opera, they said 'All My Children' is the best place to work. That was from people who were on the show and weren't on the show, had never been on the show and never hoped to be on the show. But the word was it's the best soap opera to work on. And I certainly think that has proved to be the case."
