Charlotte Ross recommends daytime soaps for young actors
"Since I started rather young, I would say DAYS OF OUR LIVES was kind of like college for me. I was on the soap for 4 years and definitely learned a lot. Then luckily - I moved on or I guess you could say 'graduated' - to primetime after they were nice enough to release me from my contract. I have nothing but awesome memories from my years there and, yes, doing 30 to 40 pages of dialogue a day was wonderful training! I highly recommend this route to new and young actors."
