General Hospital Spoilers – Working On A Web-Based Soap
When asked about what it’s like to work on a web-based soap, the actress said that the period of time is much shorter. When shooting scenes for soap, it takes several days to film scenes. But when it comes to shooting a web series, she revealed that one season can be shot over a weekend.
“It can be very intricate and it’s a delicate balancing act. But you also have a tremendous amount of freedom that you do not otherwise have in the stringent soap world. You can improvise a little bit more; we can also tackle topics that are still not allowed on soaps,” the actress explained.
Soaps and web series are also different in terms of the budget. She admitted that budgets are tight on soaps. Meanwhile, on web-based soaps like “Studio City,” all the performers are well taken care of.

Unlike the others who have their loved ones with them during this time when people are asked to stay inside their homes, being on a home quarantine all by herself isn’t easy. But, the actress is trying to make the best of it.
“Things are exceptionally productive at my house. Cabin fever has not yet set in, although I am expecting it at any moment. I’ve organized all the files on my computer, I’ve washed all the glass cabinet fronts in my kitchen, and I’m about to do my floor today,” she said.
