Interview with Ron Raines

Ron Raines as Senator Preston

Ron Raines is back in the role of the devious Senator Preston in Season Two.

What was it like shooting on location again? Is it very different than shooting on set?

It is very similar to shooting a film and they way we shot Guiding Light.  We were on location.  With the technology and camera quality and lighting, they have worked out how to do that on a less expensive budget and make it look beautiful.

Where would you like to see your character’s story arc go as the series progresses?

I will leave that up to the writers.  I think we will have to wait and see where the writers and fans take this character.   I’m just excited and thrilled to be a part of this and look forward to finding out more about the Senator.

You were on The Guiding Light with Ricky Paull Goldin and Crystal Chappell. What is it like to share scenes with them again?

Those two are pros and it’s really easy to slip back into working with them. Though it has been ages since we have shared scenes together, there is an ease between us. I trust Crystal and Ricky to have my back in our scenes and make me look good…
