Art Imitates Life for Rena Sofer

Twice-Told Tales
For many soap actors, their storylines are a direct imitation of life – theirs.

Rena Sofer’s pregnancy was written into the GENERAL HOSPITAL script when she played Lois. Only in her case, art was imitating life, which had already imitated art when she and Wally Kurth (Ned) fell in love. (Got that?) “Life really imitated art with Ned and Lois,” Sofer agrees. “That happened at the same time as Wally and me. It wasn’t on purpose. It just happened.” Her real-life pregnancy was different, though. “I had told Wendy [Riche, executive producer] that Wally and I wanted to have a child before I left GENERAL HOSPITAL and she said, ‘Please don’t do it now. Can you wait until next year?’ But I knew I wanted to be pregnant the last part of my last year on GH. Whether they would write it in or not was up to them, and of course, they wrote it in.” Lois gave birth to Brook Lynn, while Sofer had little Rosabel. read more

But if we didn’t subscribe, we wouldn’t go. We’d just say, “Oh, I wanted to see that.” This way we say, “We have to go – we already have tickets.” read more
