Martha Byrne: American Wife

In a new interview with TV Guide Canada's Nelson Branco, Martha Byrne opens up about her new role on GENERAL HOSPOITAL, working with GH’s talented ensemble, which job she wants on AS THE WORLD TURNS, GUIDING LIGHT's cancellation, and writing for Bradley Bell.

On her new GH character:

Andrea is a very in-your-face, full of attitude, and opinionated character. Andrea’s the opposite of Lily right down to the clothes. Andrea is the wife of a politician. She’s the woman behind the man, and she needs to be heard — and boy, is she ever! A scandal brings Andrea out from the shadows. She’s busy trying to troubleshoot the situation with Robin and Patrick. Andrea doesn’t take no for an answer.

On whether she would consider being ATWT's executive producer or head writer (as many fans want):

Absolutely. I’d prefer to be the soap’s executive producer than its head writer though. Knowing Douglas [Marland] as I did, I think he would say there is work to be done. For example, there are characters that need to move back to the front burner and he’d work from there. He’d definitely bring out his list of rules. It’s not like those rules don’t work. But if I ever had the privilege to helm any soap, or even prime-time show for that matter, I’d pull out those rules immediately.
