WE LOVE SOAPS TV 1.50 Elizabeth Hubbard, Part 2

On Episode 1.50 of WE LOVE SOAPS TV, Roger Newcomb visited the set of AS THE WORLD TURNS on the second to last day of production and spoke with two-time Emmy winning soap legend Elizabeth Hubbard, who has played Lucinda on the show since 1984. In this new exclusive interview, Hubbard discusses her acting career, the causes she cares about and the future. Part 2 of this three-part interview focuses on her own story ideas and memories, working with Martha Byrne, the "golden box" and writing a book about her life.

It's fun talking to you because you make it alive again. And your enthusiasm. I'm going to miss her (Lucinda) a lot. She's been a good friend.

EDITOR'S NOTE: You can watch Part 1 with Elizabeth Hubbard here.

  1. Now I am anxiously awaiting the last part. I am thoroughly enjoying your conversation with Liz. I got teary eyed at the end there listening to her talk about missing the connection and all. She's so right. I hope someone can do something, put something together. I loved hearing about her and Martha working together over the years. They truly were dynamic together. I'm going to miss Lucinda too

  2. Can't wait for part 3! Liz H is fabulous. I grew up with ATWT on in the house everyday. But, I didn't start watching this show in a serious way until after college. It was Lucinda who really hooked me into ATWT as an adult! Who is more fun to watch than her! Love that she brought up the theater/soap connection in terms of making a living at acting. What is going to happen now that the soaps in NYC are closing shop? I hope something can me done. Maybe a web version of ATWT. I fear our tv life will be a choice between lousy game shows like LMAD and The Real Housewives crap. It's sad.

  3. Thanks for the interview you've always gave ATWT respect. I have no words anymore don't want it to end. I will be done with daytime when ATWT is gone. I just wish they would focus on the vets more. And address Nancey's death. My mom has watched the show from the beginning, but she has come to terms that it will end. Wish there was some way to see the reruns on TV for those people don't like the internet, go back to the '70's and '80's the best of times.
