Video Transcript

DENISE RICHARDS: Every week, we are tested. And when I showed up to the studio, I had my temperature taken. And we have to wear a mask throughout the studio, hair and makeup as much as possible. And it was challenging, because the times when our characters would get a little closer with each other, a mannequin would be there. And then the actor-- I stepped off and read the lines for the other actor talking to the mannequin, because with the eyeline and everything, it was in a close up. So it's taking a little bit longer. Is it working?

- Think so.

DENISE RICHARDS: So of course on soap operas, there's a lot of love scenes. So we were asked if our significant other would step in. I said, OK, they asked if you would be able to step in and be the stand in. Otherwise, I have to have my love scene with a mannequin, which is fine. But I'd much rather my husband. But I think it's fun for the whole set for everyone's to come together and be supportive and want to get the show made and done and have fun with it. It's all we can do. We have to adjust with the world we're living in right now and still being able to work and do our job. We've been off work over three months. And it's time for us to get back working. And I'm very lucky that I'm with a production company and television studio and network that's willing to do what they need to do to keep everyone as safe as possible to make a great show.
