She had the power to make everyone feel so special."

ONE LIFE TO LIVE's Corbin Bleu On Playing Reporter Jeffrey & His Unique Meeting With Erika Slezak
"[Executive Producer] Jennifer Pepperman and I… had several long conversations before even starting. … The thing with Jeffrey, because of how involved he is in his work, and stuff that we will start to reveal later on about what his true purpose and everything is, I don’t know if singing [fits in] there. … So probably not. I’m gonna say ‘No’ on that, which is totally cool with me because I prefer it that way, just because I don’t need to sing in every project."

Indie Soap Award winner Sebastian La Cause talks HUSTLING
"Somehow I was able to tap into that truth of survival and the pursuit of deeper meaning in one's life set on a backdrop of sex and food. People were really responding to that. Then with the success of the Kickstarter for season two followed by the accumulation of seven Indie Soap Award nominations and two wins, being selected as a 2013 Webby Honoree in the Drama category, more incredible comments from fans, more subscribers and more view counts I'm still blown away and humbled at how strongly people have connected to Ryan's story of self-discovery and his search for purpose. People are hooked and pinning now for a third season. (Which I'm currently writing and hope to fund on Kickstarter in June.)"
