Five-time Emmy-winning actress Heather Tom from "The Bold and The Beautiful" chatted with Digital Journal about her portrayal of Katie Logan on the show, as well as her acting career.
On her portrayal of Katie Logan on The Bold and The Beautiful, she said, "I have been playing this character for so long, she has really become apart of me. That combined with the fact that my son, in real life plays my son on the show makes the experience all the more connected."
Regarding her five daytime Emmy wins, she joked, "It's just a dust problem." "No, it is extraordinary and I am so thankful to all the fans and the academy for acknowledging my work," she admitted.
Particularly impressive about Tom is that she was the first actor to win daytime Emmy awards in the "Younger Actress," "Supporting Actress," and "Lead Actress" categories. (Her cast-mate Scott Clifton was the second actor to accomplish this feature in the "Younger Actor," "Supporting Actor" and "Lead Actor" categories respectively).
When asked what motivates her each day, Tom responded, "Being able to write and direct has been something I've wanted to do my whole career. Now, I am in a position in my career where I have the opportunity to direct episodes of The Bold and The Beautiful." "The fact that I have the most incredible husband, son and family is the icing on the cake," the actress added.
On the hardest part of her job as an actress, she said, "The range of emotions that need to be used as an actress, especially on a daytime soap opera can be challenging. Pulling emotions from real-life experiences can be draining, especially when you're in a happy mood, and don't want to go to those deep places."
Tom revealed that her secret for juggling motherhood, being a wife and an acting career involves a great deal of "coffee." "Lots and lots of coffee, but also being passionate about what you're doing," she said.
On the impact of technology on the acting and entertainment industry, she said, "Technology is great because it has really enhanced the way we connect with each other, but more specifically in terms of acting, it has allowed for this whole new realm of story-telling."
Tom shared that the scripts on the hit daytime television show are given to actors in either way they prefer: print or digital. "I will read a script in any way," she said.
For aspiring actors, who wish to pursue a career in daytime television, she said, "Write and read as much as possible. You can never stop learning. Go to as many plays or performances as possible as well, and study with whoever inspires you."
She defined the word success as a "Balance between family, friends and all creative endeavors."
For her fans on The Bold and The Beautiful, she expressed her sincere gratitude. "Thank you for all your support and commitment to my character and The Bold and The Beautiful family!"
