    • Jonathan: (About working on soaps) Doing a soap is like boot camp for actors. It's one of the best, rewarding experiences of your life because you learn how to memorize 83 pages a night and you learn what face looks good on camera. I know if I use my eyebrows too much it's going to stick out because they're big! If I use them too much in my acting, I'm going to look like an idiot. That's why I keep my eyes as still as possible whenever I'm doing a scene on film now. I know, if I start moving around too much, they're gonna look stupid. You take away learning how to take direction. That's the best thing you take from a soap. You're getting direction over a monitor from a control room two floors away and it's like the voice of God comes over 'Jonathan! Can you be a little bit more angry about the fact that your mother is dead'. Okay, sure. No problem. You know that everyone knows what you're direction is so you'd better take it. They'll know if you did it wrong.
