We have three circles. The main box office will always be the focus of the story, which is what I call the core 30-year olds, not necessarily in this order: Sami/Rafe, EJ/Nicole, Brady/Madison and Carrie/Austin. Those eight make a pretty heavy crew, followed by a group of burgeoning actors and characters: Melanie, Chad, Will, Gabi, Abigail and Sonny.
Finally, there is the solid guard: Bo and Hope, John and Marlena, Jack and Jennifer, Lexie and Abe, Kate and Stefano, Maggie, Victor and Caroline and Roman and stay tuned. That pretty much just named my cast, but these writers are able to take that many people and keep them in three different driving stories, but they all overlap, they all affect each other. To be able to write three separate circles and have the same umbrella over them is magic, so I am very, very thrilled.
Sami/Rafe: (Alison Sweeney and Galen Gering)
Quinn: (Bren Foster)
