Eva Longoria: Daytime Soap Opera Actors are “Divas”

Eva Longoria reveals what it’s like working on daytime soap operas and it’s pretty dramatic.

Eva Longoria appeared on an episode of Late Night with Seth Meyers on Tuesday to promote her new comedy series Telenovelaand she discussed her experiences working on soap-operas.

Apparently, there is more drama behind the scenes of your favorite soap operas than there are in front of the camera. Longoria, who started her acting career in shows like General Hospital and The Young and the Restless, told Seth Meyers what it’s like working on a daytime soap opera in comparison to a nighttime series.

“The difference between daytime soaps and nighttime soaps is that in the daytime soaps, the men are the divas.” She recalled a time when her male scene partner kept saying the wrong line, which she was then repeatedly blamed for; “The men could do no wrong,” she concluded.

It looks like every actor has to start somewhere.

Longoria’s new TV series Telenovela is a sitcom series starring Eva Longoria and Jencarlos Canela. The series centersa round the daily life of a telenovela star that doesn’t know how to speek Spanish, even though being extremely popular with the co-stars and crew around her.
