News Round-up: Stagecoach, Spinelli, Sarah Barnes

INTERVIEW: GH's Bradford Anderson (Spinelli)
"When people recognize me they always have nice things to say, and whenever we go to events, I always have a good time at them.
I am assuming they are having a good time, too. Whether they like my character, it’s kind of about that we are all having a good time. I mean, I don’t think I have had any death threats lately. So, in that sense I think I am doing Ok. (He laughs) It’s wonderful to hear nice things, and its good news in these tough economic times that I have a little job security. I just go to work and have a good time every day. I guess people recognize that, and that is great."
