Gregori J. Martin, Hollywood's New A-Lister

Gregori J. Martin was interviewed by L.A. Canyon News.

Filmmaker, actor and director Gregori J. Martin, tells Canyon News all about his new web-series “The Bay,” which is about to debut online. Just like maverick film directors before him, Martin reminds me a lot of myself in some ways, but more like one-of-a kind mogul William Wellman, who directed many of Hollywood’s biggest and most exciting big screen features in entertainment history. Martin may have dabbled in acting, but the handsome star is quick to say, he loves being behind the camera and doesn’t have a burning desire like most actors to be on-air. “The Bay” is very much like former TV series “Dynasty,” “Falcon Crest” and as Gregori reminds me, “I got a lot of ideas from genres like ‘Santa Barbara,’ but this series is like no other.” Here’s your chance to learn about a young man who is about to take Hollywood by storm, and his amazing new dramatic serial.

On Air | On Soaps: Mary Beth Evans Interview

On Air | On Soaps recently spoke with THE BAY's Mary Beth Evans about her roles in front of and behind the camera on the show.
I think what is interesting about soaps is that as actors we all think we are going to have these jobs for 30, 40 or 50 years. But in reality, you can be let go, or killed-off, or dropped off a balcony, and you get so devastated about it. But that is really the actor’s life, and really the truth of it.
