Love Out Loud for Nadia Bjorlin



This striking beauty has mighty fine references: Patrika Darbo (ex-Nancy, Days) has seen firsthand the closeness of the Bjorlin family. Darbo attended a family get-together, and was amazed by the talent in the house. "They are absolutely incredible people who have graciously taken us into their family. There's a lot of love there." Adds Kevin Spirtas, who played Craig on Days: "Nadia knows where she's at and where she's headed. She has great inner strength...I think she has a big future if she chooses to keep doing it. She has quite a gift." Love Out Loud West has the good fortune of having this extraordianry person with us on October 16th at East/West Lounge in West Hollywood. While Nadia was ranked # 3 on TV Guide's list of Soaps' Sexiest Women, it certainly isn't her biggest claim to fame. She keeps busy by guest appearances and working on film in addition to her stint on Days of Our Lives and she has a crystal clear soprano singing voice, she won first place in the Metro Lyric Opera Competition in New York City. She has now lent us her voice.

The Generous Mr. Grimes

Adam Grimes took up acting because he was inspired by his high school drama teacher. It is now this Vermont native’s turn to do the inspiring and inspire he does as General Hospital: Night Shift's Doctor Kyle Julian. He is a member of the long-form comedy group, Supermodel, as well as an alumnus of 10 West Improvisational Theater indicating that this is a rising talent with range and versatility. Add generous to his many attributes, because it didn’t take much for him to agree to be part of Love Out Loud West's "Soaps in the City" on October 16th at East/West Lounge in West Hollywood.
Jack Myers, who also posts on the Huffington Post, had more than one encouraging word bout Adam’s current place of work:

“The stories of these characters may not be ground-breaking, but they are totally engaging, some in a fun and relaxed way, others on a level of surprising emotional connection. The same holds for the many different patients who move through the hospital in every episode, often touching the lives of the doctors and nurses with whom they interact. For example, tonight’s episode further explores the difficult relationship between brothers Leo and Kyle when they become caught up in a conflict between a young woman seeking to honor the wishes of her dying partner and the partner’s homophobic parents.



I’ll close with another line I’m surprised to find myself writing: Night Shift is such a pleasant surprise that I wish SOAPnet would run it one night a week all year long! It has made Port Charles fun again.” Read all of it here.

From his website:

With his movie star good looks and out of the box designs, fashion God Andrew Christian quickly set himself apart from the other prominent designers of his generation. Born and raised in Fresno, CA Andrew moved to LA at the age of 19 to pursue a career in fashion. Though he gained experience working briefly for other companies at first, Andrew always knew he’d have his own brand and an outlet to create his unique vision. Just out of high-school, Andrew launched his brand “Andrew Christian”.
