Q&A is not to be duplicated elsewhere and claimed as their own.
Lucy Merriam began playing "Emma Lavery" around her fourth birthday and since then has grown up on our screens until this year when she wrapped up the role in January. Lucy has developed a long following of fans and today we have a Q&A with Miss Lucy about her work on All My Children, as well as her feature film Marley and Me1. What has been Lucy's favourite scenes/storyline to film?
Most recently Lucy loved doing the Halloween scenes. She said she loved the costumes and she has also enjoyed manipulating the adults during the Who Killed Stuart story. She got to work with an acting coach and enjoyed the whole process. Other than that, she loved all weddings and scenes involving big poofy dresses. She also enjoys kidnappings--they (the kidnappers) always serve pancakes and bacon.2.How did Lucy and Joe enjoy fan weekend?
Lucy enjoys signing autographs--she just learned cursive. Joe is equally tickled to sign his name. Lucy used to be afraid of fans when she was really little, now she says she will miss the fans the most3.What was the biggest difference between filming AMC and filming Marley & Me?
In Marley Lucy says you had to do the scenes a lot more times. Also Lucy didn't know everybody like she does on All My Children.4.What about the movie, Marley & Me, did Lucy enjoy the most?
The snow scene was the fun part because everybody was really playing in the "snow". She got to go sledding in May and play with the dog and the boys. It took all day to do that one scene.5.How did Lucy enjoy getting to work with J.R. Martinez? (P.S. he had some really nice things to say about you when we talked to him!)
Lucy says he was very patient with her and is a good doctor for real.Joe is impressed that he is a real soldier.6.Does lucy get to play with the younger cast members backstage?
Lucy loves the Spikes and Alexa. She also enjoys playing with Cameron's son and daughter. The Little A's are also fun to play with. She enjoys seeing the babies, too. Sometimes, it is a real circus in the dressing room hallway when all the kids are in.7.How did lucy enjoy sleeping through her hospital scenes?
The hospital scenes were taped after the first day of school and Lucy was exhausted. Lucy says she likes napping on the job.8. Who are some of Lucy's favorite people to spend time with backstage?
Lucy is devoted to her nurse Sister Noreen and also the back-up nurses Jada and Kathy. She enjoys playing Uno and her homework behind the scenes. She also loves trying things on in wardrobe and getting Lisa to do her hair.9. Is there anyone Lucy wishes she got the chance to work with more often?
Lucy works with Cameron the most and when I asked her who she wants to work with more, she said Cameron. She adores him. Once Lucy was balking at eating her breakfast and I asked her TV dad to administer some discipline. Poor Cameron did not want to lower the boom on Lucy and demand she eat! Lucy also would have liked to do more scenes with Alexa.10. Does Lucy watch her scenes on TV?
Lucy loves to watch AMC when she is on. She worried that her grandma won't get to see her so much now that she is no longer on the show.
