Loves Hope, BUT He's Found His Groove With Billie
Peter Reckell (Bo) told
Soap Opera Digest that he loves working with Kristian Alfonso (Hope),
BUT he's found his groove with Julie Pinson (Billie). He said, "Julie
and I have a lot of fun together; she's just a fun, fun lady. What
makes it very special for me is I've got two talented and pretty
women to work off of. I'm very, very fortunate to come to work and
do what I do every day. I feel Julie's made the role [of Billie]
her own. She's doing a great job.
It's always difficult
when you have to follow other actresses in a role. It's funny, because
a lot of the history between Bo and Billie is not the history that
the two of us have played together. So we're having to make up this
history as we go along. It's rather interesting. Especially filming
those newly created flashbacks. We're having those all the time."
He laughs. "Bo was a different actor [Robert Kelker Kelly]
when he was in love with Billie and
pulling her out of the drug stuff. And now it's me having to do
that and it's the same with Julie [Lisa Rinna played Billie back
then]. I didn't watch old tapes. We're leaving it up to Jim Reilly
and we're finding out along with the audience what Jim has in mind."

"Damn it, Billie, can't you see I'm only doing
this 'cause I love you?"
"What exactly did you mean by that?"
Voice: "Fasten your seat belts, folks, I'm afraid
it's gonna be a bumpy ride."
