INTERVIEW: Laurence Lau

"Laurence Lau has mostly been known for his work on daytime dramas like All My Children, Another World, One Life to Live, and most recently, As the World Turns," writes Neil Cohen. "It’s sad news that CBS has canceled As the World Turns, which premiered fifty-three years ago. The show features two of the most high profile gay characters on daytime TV, Luke (Van Hansis) and Noah (Jake Silbermann).

"Lau added some welcome drama when he joined the show as Brian Wheatley, a non-profit director who ended up marrying Luke’s grandmother, Lucinda Walsh (Elizabeth Hubbard). He upset Luke by urging him to hide his sexual orientation for the good of Luke’s non-profit, and later shocked Luke by kissing him. Wheatley was forced to face that he was gay, breaking Lucinda’s heart and driving him to leave town." Read full interview here.
