HOLLYOAKS producer Paul Marquess reveals vision for show future
"If you came from America, you'd look at CORRIE, EMMERDALE and EASTENDERS and say they are essentially the same format with different accents, whereas HOLLYOAKS is different. It's very focused in terms of its target demographic and I think it ought to be focused in the way it tells stories. It was about working out what a HOLLYOAKS story is, as opposed to an EASTENDERS story.

"By October/November on screen, it's much more focused on the point of view of the younger characters. It doesn't mean we won't play the older characters but it's telling stories that are about rites of passage, about discovering things for the first time and that are essentially about working out who you are, as opposed to being defined by your parents or teachers or background."

American Urban Radio Networks News Director Tene' Croom, along with AURN Hollywood Correspondent, Tanya Hart, to cameo on ALL MY CHILDREN
"I had a blast putting down the microphone and putting on doctors scrubs for my cameo role portraying a doctor on the show. It was my distinct honor and pleasure to take part in the special media event." Croom said.

Hart noted, "I have been covering television shows and movies for years, often from the vantage point of being on the set as it happens. But my experience of actually being a part of the iconic day time drama, "All My Children," was truly an amazing experience. The best part, since I was playing the role of a sick patient; I got rolled around in a wheelchair by a really handsome actor!"
