I hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend ... Happy Valentine's Day!!! Thank you for the Kisses that I received at the studio ... I decided to wait until today to thank you ... Big Kiss on you!! And I can't sign off without thanking each and every one of you, for continuing to tune in to Days... We couldn't do it without your support.... Thank you, and Happy Valentine's Day!
Just wanted to say hello, and let you know what I've been up to. I've been working on the show alot the past few weeks, which I thought you'd be happy to hear.... So be sure and tune in to see how the shipping storyline plays out, because the outcome has an affect on many characters in Salem.
I attended the Daytime Emmy's last Friday, in support of the nominated actors from our show... Darin Brooks, Rachel Melvin, Thaao Penghlis, and Judi Evans..... I can't even begin to describe how hot it was on the way into the Kodak theater... but I made it inside in one piece....Unfortunately, we didn't take home any Emmy's, but with the cast and crew we have, I'm optimistic about next year.
Hopefully, you've had a chance to check out the video I posted on Youtube, "Anatomy of a Love Scene". It was shot at the studio, and gives a behind the scenes look at what goes into making a love scene..... After only 4 days, we hit 20,000 views, and I think we're getting close to 30,000 now. Get the word out to anyone who hasn't seen it yet, and stay tuned, cause I have another video I'm posting sometime soon..... It's questions and answers, with some of the actors on the show.
Write me at the studio if you have any ideas for other videos you might want to see, and I always like to hear from you about the storyline and all that good stuff. So keep in touch.
Thank you to the JKJ-NOW, and JKJ-JP members, for sending that cake to the studio....... You should've seen the size of it!!!
And to the "Phloe" fans at I. Y. E., thank you for the balloons.
Both the cake and the balloons were in my dressing room before I arrived, so it was a nice surprise.
I went to St. Louis a week ago, and was quickly reminded, just how cold it can actually get. But despite the roads being covered in ice, we had a pretty good turnout. I did a question and answer session, then was able to meet most of you. I had alot of fun, and hopefully the weather will cooperate, next time I'm in town.
And finally, I wanted to tell you that it's looking like I will be doing another "behind the scenes, sooner than I thought. I have a few ideas, and I hope to shoot something in the next two weeks...... So keep an eye out for that.
That's all for now........ Thanks again for everything, and I'll be in touch.
Hope you all are doing well. I'm great......The show is dark this week, so I'm enjoying a nice, and much needed break.
The Ireland storyline and aftermath was a long couple of weeks. Hopefully you got a chance to check out the "behind the scenes" clips I put together. I wanted you to get a feel for how big of a production the crash was. The actual crash set took up half the stage, with the crew on the other half. As big as it was, I think we pulled it off.
That said, it was sad to see Frank Parker's "Grandpa Shawn" go. He is one of a kind, and will be missed. If you get a minute, try and write him to say "thanks" for all the memories.
I do like the fact that "Philip" is getting the opportunity to interact with many other characters. The crash was an unfortunate situation, but "assuming" we make it back to Salem, I think that interaction will continue.
Most importantly though......Please don't forget how much I appreciate your continued support. It's a great feeling to know I have you in my corner....Many of you have followed my career path from the beginning, and for that, I can't say "thank you" enough......Stay in touch, and let me know what you think of the upcoming stories on the show. And stay tuned for more webisodes I plan on putting together for you to see.
And if you happen to be in the St. Louis area, I'm doing an event there this Friday, February 22nd. Come by and say "hello"
That's about it for now. Take care, and hope to hear from you soon.
Hello everyone Hope all is well. Just wanted to say hello, and let you know what I've been up to. I had a great summer. Can't believe it's over already. I traveled some when I wasn't working, but stayed close to home for the most part. Work has been going well. As you all know by now, there were some changes made at the studio. I can't say enough about Ed Scott. He has some great ideas, and I feel like he has a plan to take this show in the right direction. From what I can tell, I will be working alot more this fall. And I have to believe that all of your support, and the campaign letters you wrote have something to do with that. So, THANK YOU, very much. Hopefully, those of you who have written me at the studio have got something back in the mail. I know some hadn't, but I think we got that fixed. And as always, please keep writing me and the studio with anything that's on your mind. I also wanted to let you know that I'm trying to get another online chat/blog going. Brandon and I didn't get to answer too many questions that day. So hopefully that will happen soon. I'll let you know. That's about it for now. Take care...talk to you soon. JKJ
Hello Everyone, Hope you all are doing well. I'm great...Enjoying the summer, traveling a bit, and working of course. In the past few months, alot has changed on the show, and it feels like it's getting better and better every day. I know many of you are disappointed with my story, among other things, but be patient. I feel that everything will work out. Hopefully all the letters you have sent to NBC, and the people who run the show, will get the results we all want. On that note, I want to thank you all for your support. It means alot to me. And I think all those letters are getting noticed. I saw a few printed in the magazines, and I have to believe that the people at the show have noticed them too. Thanks again. I will check in with you all sometime soon, but until then, keep on writing me at the studio. Take care. XO JKJ
Hello everyone, Hope you are doing well. Just wanted to thank you all for the birthday wishes. I got all the cards you sent, along with some gifts, and I wish I could thank you all personally. Also, when I showed up at work on Friday, there was a cake waiting for me. It was HUGE!!!!! I ate some, shared some, and still had a little to take home. That was so nice of you all to send. I really appreciate it. If you have sent me a letter to the studio, you should be receiving something in the mail soon. Hope you like it. I still want to know what you all think of the story, so keep on writing me. I'll be in touch. Thanks again, and take care. JKJ
