Soaps In Depth

Not only does Thorsten Kaye have a terrific sense of humor, he appreciates getting his funny bone tickled by the antics in animation. In fact, two of his favorites include the films Who Framed Roger Rabbit and Iron Giant.

"I like cartoons not because I'm just a big kid, it has nothing to do with that," he explains, "but because they are so similar to soap operas - like cartoons, we can make things work that other genres can't."

In fact, Kaye even relates to his PC character in that way.

"I think Ian's a cartoon character not because he's painted with funky colors from somebody's palate, but because he has to react to things in a certain way," the actor muses. "The way a soap opera is structured is that they start at the end and move backwards. I think cartoons are the same way - they start with the anvil on the head and then see how they got there."
