It looks like this General Hospital alum is making the big move to primetime. There are new reports that say actor Rick Hearst has clinched a new role in OWN’s soap opera Ambitions.
Rick Hearst Has A New Role In Primetime
While there are no details available about Rick’s character, we do know that he will be sharing some scenes with Robin Givens, who plays Stephanie Carlisle in the film. As many fans remember, Rick was best known for his roles as Ric Lansing on General Hospital, Scott Banning on Days of Our Lives, Whip Jones on The Bold and the Beautiful, Carter Mills/Matt Clark on The Young and the Restless and Alan Michael Spaulding on Guiding Light. In other words, Rick was and still is a daytime television legend who knows how to entertain fans well!
The actor also admitted that he usually tends to play characters that all have something very much in common: deceit and revenge, and not to mention dishonesty. Daytime television just wouldn’t be the same without a villain that has those three qualities about him or her, right? Rick Heart is well aware of the fact that each character he has played on the small screen as a go-getter who was willing to do whatever it took to get his way.
Rick Hearst Says He Is A Method Actor
Rick told Michael Fairman in an interview several years back, “People exist in their own world and from their perspectives, given what they have been through in their own lives and their circumstances. These guys say the things you wish you could say. I describe this guy at this point as the Ari Gold of the fashion world.
I so respect Jeremy Piven of Entourage. Here is a guy who has taken an agent, who for a lot of us in the industry seem to be sometimes the slimiest people in life, but at the same time you have to look at the person behind it. He plays a guy who, regardless of anything, he cares and he loves his client.
His methods may be off-center but he makes no excuses for it. Ultimately, it’s for the betterment of himself and his client. I look at Whip much the same way. He is looking to reap the benefits of what he is laying out there for his client.”
