Below, you can watch the entire interview in WE LOVE SOAPS TV Episode 3.54 and read some highlights from the transcript.
WE LOVE SOAPS TV: Did EJ shoot Stefano (Joe Mascolo)?
James Scott: Well, probably, yeah.
He had the gun in his hand, he pulled the trigger, we saw the gun go off, it was certainly pointed, pretty much, in the direction of Stefano. I would like Stefano to be on the receiving end of that.
James Scott: I don't, on this occasion, have the luxury of knowing where the story is going, but I would love to see this come around to Stefano and EJ rekindling a relationship in some way.
WE LOVE SOAPS TV: He [Stefano] never stays dead.
James Scott: Well, I know. I hear he always comes back.
WE LOVE SOAPS TV: Our viewers love the chemistry between EJ and Will (Chandler Massey). What's it like working with Chandler?
James Scott: First of all, Chandler Massey should win the award for Younger Actor. He's the most talented young actor that I've ever worked with.
They [Will and EJ] have this really interesting relationship. I think of it as being a mentor/mentee relationship - almost a father/son relationship. It has some really interesting dynamics within that, because of course you have Will's sexuality and you have the fact that EJ is a man who is not over and above, like, walking that line...
I mean, I don't think there's any question regarding EJ's sexuality, but he knows how to exert power over people.
WE LOVE SOAPS TV: It would send Sami over the edge.
James Scott: Maybe that's a good reason to do it. Sami, you marry me, or I marry your boy! It's up to you.
