ARC: You recently returned to All My Children. Did you ease right back in to the role of Maria?
Eva: It was a blast. It was like going home again. I got to work with dear friend, Sarah Michelle Gellar and we had never really worked together before. We shared a dressing room for about 2 years but finally got to have scenes together. I loved seeing all my old friends. Working at AMC is like being a part of a huge family.
ARC: What was it like going back? It's fair to say you got pretty emotional when speaking about the final season.
Eva: I still can't talk about it without getting emotional. AMC launched my career and changed my life. I got married there and had my baby there and made so many close friends. I am so sad that it is going away. It is a part of television history. Pine Valley is a part of America. It breaks my heart. That role taught me how to really be an actress. It introduced me to a man who gave me my daughter. That is something that I am eternally thankful for and will always be.
ARC: You are the National Spokesperson for the Beckstrand Cancer Foundation and you are a part of their Butterfly Effect television campaign and print campaign. How important is this organization to you?
Eva: I love Beckstrand. The work we do there everyday really helps cancer patients and their families cope with the everyday issues related to cancer. Beckstrand provides aid for such expenses as rent, mortgage, medical insurance payments, gas, groceries and a host of other everyday expenses. Our mission is to take away some of life's worries so patients and families can focus on recovery. Beckstrand is beyond effective and extraordinary. To learn more go to www.beckstrand.org.
ARC: You made the move to Twitter this year. Is it fun communicating with your fans in your own personal way? There is also an impostor Eva LaRue on Twitter!
Eva: Yes, I made the leap. It is fun to keep up with fans and keep in the "know" about what is going on in cyber space! LOL! I guess I am flattered that someone wants to be me but I also feel bad for my fans that are being misled. This other person is giving out false information and it is really not a very nice thing for them to do. I wish that they would not pretend to be me. For the record...I am EvaLaRueCappoo! I have no other Twitter name.
ARC: A huge congratulations on your 20+ year career in the industry!
Eva: Have I been working that long? Yikes. It makes me sound old. LOL! Seriously...I have been really lucky. I have been blessed and I am so lucky.
ARC: You have some amazing fans out there, what message do you have for them?
Eva: I have the best fans out there. So many of them have been with me since my days on AMC. When I meet people on the street they are so kind and complimentary. The letters I get from fans are so encouraging. I hope I can keep doing work that will keep the fans coming back. I owe my fans a great deal of gratitude! Thank you all so very much!!!! xoxoxo
