Kaye says Zach's happier than he's ever been.

Soaps In Depth

Published May 8, 2008

Back when AMC's Zach made his first appearance as a morally questionable casino owner, kids were the farthest thing from the brooding loner's life. And later, Ethan didn't help matters. "He never had a chance to be a father to that guy, because he was so angry," says portrayer Thorsten Kaye. "That was part of the storyline that I didn't care for, because it always seemed that Ethan was just angry at Zach for nothing Zach could control," Kaye says. "And the problem with this character is that he's always trying to do the right thing and he always ends up hurting other people by doing the right thing, so that's kind of what happened." But Spike's arrival, and now Kendall's pregnancy, have mellowed the cynical Cambias CEO, and Kaye welcomes Zach's hopeful new outlook. "He's never had a baby, so I think maybe he thinks this is a new chance for him to maybe redeem himself.

That's A Fact

Kaye has a master's degree in theater and theater history.
