Actor Dan White chatted with Digital Journal’s Markos Papadatos about “General Hospital,” and he shared his advice for young and aspiring actors, and expressed his appreciation for the fans.

White plays the role of the villainous Elijah Crowe on the hit ABC daytime drama “General Hospital.” He is drawn to his character for a number of reasons. “Elijah is ambitious and it has been really fun to look for the humanizing aspect of the character,” he said. “As an actor, it is fun to play the nefariousness because it allows you to step out of yourself.”

He has been afforded the privilege to play opposite Emmy winners Maurice Benard (who has starred as Sonny Corinthos on the show for years) and Cynthia Watros (Nina Reeves), and he praised both of these actors for their professionalism. “Both of their reputations precede them. It has been a blast to be Maurice Benard’s nemesis,” he said. “It has been an incredible honor to be in this show and to have so many scenes with him. Maurice is such a gracious man, and it is fun to ‘play tennis’ with someone like that.”

“It has been fantastic to work with Cynthia Watros as well,” he said. “Cynthia is wonderful, she has been very welcoming and giving. She is just so kind and refreshing. We have great synergy there.”

For young and aspiring actors, White said, “Train up, do theater as much as you can. Watch films, watch the greats. Work on your craft and that includes speech, movements, and voice. I would tell them to go to class, study, and watch films. Be as educated as you can and get to work.”

On the title of the current chapter of his life, he said, “Gratitude.”

“Success is a journey,” he said about his definition of the word success. “It’s a journey, not a destination. It involves doing what we are supposed to do on a day-to-day basis over a period of time. That’s what it’s all about.”

For all of his fans and supporters, White expressed his sincere gratitude. “Thank you, thank you, thank you,” he expressed profusely. “General Hospital has been and continues to be, the highlight of my career. My grandmother watched General Hospital, and for me, it’s a fantastic experience. I am so grateful to the fans.”
