On today’s show Luke and Regan visit with Rogers about his amazing year and what it was like to portray Robert Scorpio, whose battle with cancer forced him and the fans to accept the reality that he was no longer the indestructible super-agent we’d grown accustomed to seeing on our screens. Rogers shares how seeing his former penthouse recreated on Night Shift was spooky and how it brought back so many memories for him and Finola Hughes. We ask Rogers about what it was like to work with Sri Rao and his popular writing team at Night Shift and get his thoughts on what role Rao may yet play in daytime.
The wedding of Patrick and Robin would not have been complete without Robert Scorpio to walk his daughter down the aisle so we talk to Rogers about how important it was for him to be a part of the momentous occasion, what his favorite moments from the wedding were and how sentimental the wedding was for Finola, Kimberly McCullough and himself.
Roger’s online series Tristan Rogers Unscripted gave fans behind-the-scenes glimpse into Night Shift that fans rarely see in daytime and he shares what it was like to get everyone to appear on the series. The economic crisis facing the country is having an impact on daytime and Rogers discusses can and needs to be done to help save the genre.
Rogers gives an update on the auctions at TristanRogers.com in support of the charity Project Cuddle and tells us how much money his fans raised for the worthy cause.
