Vote: Let Luke Find Love!

I just wanted to do a quick post to let you know that if you're interested in helping As the World Turn's Luke find love, you can click on this link which will take you to a CBS Daytime fan panel for ATWT. One of their current questions is as follows:

5) Do you think Luke should have a boyfriend?
Yes. I like the character of Luke and think it would be interesting to see him meet someone.
Maybe. I miss him not having a story and if part of that includes finding a boyfriend then it might be worth tuning in.
No. This is not a topic I am interested and I don’t really care for the character and will likely tune out.

I think it's a potentially hopeful sign that they're putting this question to the viewers, since it shows that they're actually considering going there. But on the other hand, if too many people vote no it could hurt our chances of seeing a real storyline develop for Luke. So, please take the time to vote if you can. You do have to register first, but it's just your name, e-mail, and gender. You can skip the rest of the questions and just vote on Luke's storyline if you don't follow the show, or voice your opinions on other storylines & characters if you do.

And of course, you can always voice your opinion on how the Luke storyline is going by contacting the show via snail mail or e-mail. Here's the contact info:

As the World Turns
1268 East 14th Street
Brooklyn, NY 11230.

Oh, and another quick note: Van Hansis has been pre-nominated for a Daytime Emmy for Best Younger Actor. Now, each show gets to pre-nominate two actors/actresses per category, and those actors choose two episodes of their work to send in. A panel then viewers all the selections and nominates five actors/actresses in each of the categories.

They'd be a fool not to nominate Van for the incredible work he's done during Luke's coming out storyline. I think the hardest part will be for Van to choose just two episodes to send in when there were so many amazing scenes spread out over months worth of shows!

So, congrats to Van on this first step to the Emmy he so richly deserves to win!

Tomorrow I hope to be able to post a piece I've been working on this week when I've been able to grab a few minutes here and there.
