Sarah Buxton: (on her "Sunset Beach" character) It's a role that is a lot of fun to play. Annie, has many different sides to her. I have to be mean and nasty and sexy and conniving. But, that just makes the role a lot more challenging for me. I think we all have different facets to our personality, including some we never show. Changing your personality for the character is just something you get into when you are acting.
Sarah Buxton: The very first time I acted was in first grade. We did a play called The Coins of Lin Foo. All the kids living on my street acted in it. This little boy was playing Lin Foo, and at the last minute chickened out. I knew all his lines, so I put on this boy's wig and I played Lin Foo.
Sarah Buxton: (on her famous "whipped cream" scene on "Sunset Beach") It was exciting. I was in a hotel room, and I'm standing there about four hours. I had a lot of fun - it was really silly. I feel like I'm in I Love Lucy sometimes; that's what Annie seems like to me lately. I think that's great because I love comedy.
Sarah Buxton: Soap operas are the hardest job as an actor. We'd have 40 to 75 pages of dialogue. The memorization part's just the beginning of the work. Then we would just try to make sense of it every morning, which was completely insane.
Sarah Buxton: (on the last days of "Sunset Beach") This was a great working machine. People loved each other, and that's so hard to find. I'll really miss it.
