GH’s Andrea Bogart really needs to make one thing perfectly clear — she’s not a stripper, she just plays one on television. When she got the role of Abby, the character’s first encounter with her now love interest, Michael, was questionable, at best. Abby was, in fact, going to “deflower” him, all as a quickie favor to her friend, Sam.
As a result, perception was that, yes, she was a hooker with a heart of gold. “I definitely had my fears about that,” Bogart tells Soaps In Depth. “As an actress and as a human being, I had to let go of that people-pleasing need. Who doesn’t love to be loved and liked? You have to know that you’re not always going to be accepted and put on a pedestal. In this instance, yeah, I was a little hesitant.”
Get the scoop on Abby’s future with Michael and if dancing for dollars is really in her character’s past, all in the new ABC issue of Soaps In Depth on newsstands now (August 22, 2011 issue)!
