Van Hansis reflects on “As the World Turns”

By Greg Hernandez

Three-time Emmy nominee Van Hansis has been outstanding as gay teen and now gay man Luke Snyder on “As the World Turns” which will end its long run in September.

Van tells that in the end, he’d like to see Luke end up with the love of his life, Noah Meyer (Jake Silbermann). But fans (including me!) are quite excited about his budding romance with sexy Dr. Reid Oliver (Eric Sheffer Stevens).

Here is a portion of what he has to say about Reid:

AE: What is it about Reid that appeals to Luke? Is it more about that he’s not with Noah or is it just about him?
VH: No, I think what appeals to Luke is that Reid is a challenge. I also think he really actually enjoys Reid’s snarkiness, you know, Reid’s nastiness.

    I believe it is stupid to cancel As The World Turns. it is the first soap on daytime to have a gay couple on it. plus it is the longest running soap. true some of the problems of the show are reused but life is repeats its self. why replace it with another lousy game show. CBS will be upsetting the fans. Has CBS forgot about the fans that have grown up with the show and tune in all the time. Get rid of Dr. Pil or Oprah. but not As The World Turns. please as a new fan that has fallen in love with the show don’t get rid of it.
