with Gedstern's GH News & Scoops
Gedstern sits down with: Scott Egan! (our fave Bodyguard, Johnny!)
Thank you so much for this!
Scott: Thank you so much,
it's good to be back in Port Charles, I want to thank all the fans out there,
without them none of this would be possible. I want to especially thank my good
friend, Jen, who runs my website, without her I think Johnny might have already
had cement shoes!
First of all, it's good to see "Johnny" again!
Did he kill off "Max" or what?
Scott: No, Johnny could never
hurt anyone unless he was ordered to by Sonny! Plus Max lives in the gym, all
he does is work out…he is too big, I think he is getting ready for some kind of
nude weightlifting competition!
Have you been doing anything outside
of GH you want fans to know about?
Scott: Yes…I recently
did a national Honda commercial which is currently running in which I am playing
baseball! When I am not acting, I am a baseball instructor at "The West Coast
Baseball School," where I work with kids anywhere from the ages of 6 to 16. I
can't even say how much fun it is to see the progress of a young boy or girl,
it really makes you feel like you're making a difference in someone else’s life
which is the greatest gratification of all!
Now that Steve Burton
is back, is it just like old times at the Penthouse?
Yeah, Steve being back has added a lot more comedy on the show! He is a great
human being. He is a tremendous actor, very serious at times, but he also knows
how to balance it out by having fun as well. He has taught me so much, I am so
grateful to him… God bless him!
Who messes up their lines the most?
Real Andrews, Maurice, Steve or Tamara? (you can tell us...!)
Everyone is really good on the show. There is a lot of professionalism. They
come prepared. But, I would have to say because of the amount of lines they give
this one actress (which is like the dictionary of dialogue!!!), she sometimes
struggles. I'll give you a hint, she is absolutely drop dead gorgeous! She is
an amazing actress! She is stunning to watch! And she may be the HOTTEST LAWYER
on TV, hint, hint.
I saw you (and Steve Burton) at a Mall appearence
in Rochester, NY awhile ago. What's it like to fly around the country doing those
things? Fun or too hectic to even know what's happening?
The PAs that I have been on have been so much fun. I can't even begin to express
how grateful I am to Steve and Maurice for including me on them. It's given me
the chance to meet all the wonderful fans all over the country. I have a great
time traveling with them! It gives me the opportunity to see my family and friends
back home. I have been truly blessed to have people like Steve and Maurice in
What's your fave LA hangout?
place called Studio City Yogurt. Good people and great yogurt! I love the cookies
Ketchup or Mustard?
without a doubt! It's like oxygen!!
If you could get Johnny hooked
up with any woman in Port Charles, who would you pick?
Well, at this point I don't think Johnny should be picky! But I'll tell you
what, there is an actress on the show whose character is pretty hot for Johnny
but because she is so good at what she does you would never know it. I think they
would make the perfect couple…Johnny would flood her with flowers and candy every
day! She is so beautiful they would be a match made in heaven! Can you guess,
I think she used to live in the 90210 zip code!
Thanks so much, Scott!
The fans really love the character of Johnny and will love this interview!
Scott: No, thank you for your interview, it was a lot of fun. God
bless all the fans out there, hopefully if things go accordingly Johnny will be
around more often. I have a wonderful job, I am surrounded by great people, and
I have a wonderful boss who should get a lot more credit. I truly believe she
will get back to the EMMY status--Jill Phelps!! Thank you, Karen, and God Bless!
