Days of Our Lives Spoilers: Characteristics of a Great Story
According to the pair, a great story must have “Truth, wit, and change.”
“We love good dialogue and really got into the scenes, reading them aloud together. Our characters are people we have known well, and we can hear them talking in our dreams sometimes. Really,” the pair said.
“So, there’s truth. Wit? We love humor, because life is largely funny—especially for actors with their large egos and strong grasp on unreality. As for change, all drama is based on it. Circumstances change people, so our ladies and gentlemen move through plots that are guaranteed to make them twist and develop,” they explained.
