(Regarding Guiding Light's Casting Director contacted him about being on the show)
Mark Schlereth: I thought it was one of my buddies playing a joke on me. I was e-mailed at my personal Web site and I just kind of laughed it off and then I started doing some investigative work. The e-mail was: "We really like you on television. We think you have that look...." The names and e-mails checked out, so I thought, maybe this is real! I responded and said, "Certainly I'd be interested in possibly pursuing this." And then I came out [to New York] and auditioned and it's been great.
