News Round-up: Farah Fath, Tonya Lee Williams, Pyfrom

INTERVIEW: OLTL's Farah Fath (Gigi)
On the Stacy Morasco storyline: "I haven’t gone on record yet to state how much I loathed that storyline. This is not news to [head writer] Ron [Carlivati] and [executive producer] Frank [Valentini]. They saw right through me! They knew I was fed up. The most frustrating was that Rex and Gigi were so blatantly stupid. I knew the viewers would have the same reaction. I have enough experience to know what makes a good soap story, and this wasn’t it. You can’t piss off soap fans. Maybe for a few episodes, fine, but not for half of the entire year. There was nothing rootable about this storyline. It’s been the hardest storyline of my career."
