Emmy-nominated actress Terri Ivens chatted with Digital Journal's Markos Papadatos about her latest acting projects, which include "68 Melrose Avenue," "The Bay" and "Tainted Dreams."
'86 Melrose Avenue'
In the hostage thriller 86 Melrose Avenue, she plays Detective Garcia. "That film is getting a lot of wins in the festival circuit," she said.
"Langston Fishburne is in it, so it was great to work with him. Director and writer Lili Matta put together an amazing ensemble, which included Gregory Zarian. Gregory (who plays Avi) just knocked it out of the park, he was so good. There were so many levels to his performance, and I get deeper and deeper into his story and all of his nuances. Lili did a wonderful job for her debut project."

On her experience on The Bay, she said, "It has been fantastic. Everyone is masked these days on set but the quality of what is being edited and put together is phenomenal. Our episodes in Season 6 are longer in length so that's pretty cool."
"I love working with Scott Bailey, I've known him for years. He's endearing and so giving as an actor. I've known his wife forever too," she said. "Also, working with Ronn Moss has been incredible. He is one of the nicest guys in the business. Ronn is successful, calm, and confident. I've always gotten an endearing warmth from Ronn Moss, and his wife, Devin DeVasquez, is the best."
For playing Orchid in The Bay, she earned an Emmy nomination for "Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Digital Daytime Drama Series" back in 2018. "That was fantastic. It is always nice to be recognized by your peers, and the competition is so thick these days. I was very grateful to be nominated among the Top 5," she said.

'Tainted Dreams'
In the digital series Tainted Dreams, she plays Kassandra Bently. She starred alongside such actors as Austin Peck (Max Hillstone in the show) and Alicia Minshew, who portrays Angelica Caruso. "Austin Peck is one of the funniest guys, he has a dry wit about him," she said. "It was great to work with Alicia again since we were friends from All My Children. That was a really beautiful thing to reunite with her, I don't take it for granted at all."
She also had kind words about Jessie Godderz (Mr. Pec-Tacular), who plays Dylan Buckwald in Tainted Dreams. "Although our characters never had scenes together, we love him," she exclaimed. "Jessie has a great following."
When asked how she handled being dialogue-heavy in her career as a daytime actress, she responded, "Soap opera is a wonderful school/bootcamp. We do at least a show a day. Our brains are really amazing, everyone has to memorize many pages. We work fast."

Ivens also complimented celebrity photographer Bjoern Kommerell. "Bjoern gives me the greatest memories," she said. "I've shot with him more than two times. Not only does he take great photos of me, but when he takes photos of me and my daughter, those are the ones I treasure the most. Bjoern is so cool and down to earth."
For Ivens, success means "the word yes." "The more you say the word 'yes,' no matter what it is, the more you will attract it. There is a positive energy to it. As a matter of fact, photographer Bjoern Kommerell always told me that I ignite energy every time I say the word 'yes' when he would photograph me," she said.
