Interview: Anne-Marie Johnson on Days’ role, diversity in Hollywood and how soap operas create a sense of community
I think it’s a shame that there are so few soap operas.
Anne-Marie Johnson, a Los Angeles-born UCLA graduate, has had a long and impressive acting career. From roles in the hit shows ‘In the heat of the night’, ‘What’s Happening Now!’ “In Living Color” and “Melrose Place”, she was able to showcase her incredible range, from comedy to drama and all the emotions in between.
Equally impressive has been his work for diversity in Hollywood on camera and behind the scenes. Former national chair of the Ethnic Employment Opportunity Committee and a member of SAG’s Affirmative Action / Diversity Task Force, Johnson helped create programs for the union and industry at large in the area of affirmative action and diversity, and only last month he won the 2016 SAG-AFTRA Ralph Morgan Award for his decades of patronage, the first African American to do so.
And starting today, April 26, Johnson will play an instrumental character in Abigail Deveraux DiMera’s (Kate Mansi) mental health journey as she begins her portrayal of psychiatrist Dr. She took the time to talk to Soaps.com about the character, about his love of soap operas and how he thinks things have changed in Hollywood and how they still have a long way to go.
Soaps.com: Tell us a little about your character, Dr. Robinson, and her role in Abigail’s struggles.
Johnson: Dr. Robinson is the director of the psychiatric hospital where Abigail is a patient. They develop an intense, somewhat rocky, but later understanding and compassionate relationship. It’s a roller coaster.
Soaps.com: Will your character interact with anyone else or just Abigail?
Johnson: Yes, the character interacts with Chad [Billy Flynn] and Dr. Marlena [Deidre Hall] and a few others, but mostly with Abigail. Certainly with his family and friends in solidarity, but above all with Abigail.
Soaps.com: We know your character will be appearing within a few months. Were you able to film everything together or did you have to go back and shoot in that time frame?
Johnson: No, it took a few months. It took about three months to shoot all the episodes. It was a great process because it gave me time to get to know the cast of course, but especially the crew. To spend meaningful time with the crew and get the lay of the land. It has been stretched for nearly three months.
Soaps: How did this experience compare to your last time in Salem as Marlena’s therapist, Dr. Patel?
Johnson:Well, the last time was much shorter. Deidre Hall and I knew each other at other events when I was on a series for NBC. As you know, many times they will combine night and day in certain events. Many years ago, in the 1980s, I had a boyfriend working on ‘Days’ so I visited the set many times. She and I knew each other, but Eileen Davidson (Kristen Black DiMera; Ashley Abbot in “The Young and the Restless”) didn’t. What a fantastic woman. I really enjoyed working with her. She was great. I’ve always been a fan of her and it’s been a great meeting and working with her. Reconnect with some of the crew I had known for other jobs. Obviously it was a faster experience than the one we’re talking about now,
Soaps.com: Who in ‘Days’ would you like to have scenes with that you may not have been able to do any of those times?
Johnson: Oh my God, that’s a great question. I do not know. Well, you know, James [Reynolds, Abe Carver] and I have been friends for years. It would have been great to work with Jim.
Soaps.com: You have worked extensively for diversity in Hollywood and were recently the first African American to win the 2016 Ralph Morgan Award SAG-AFTRA. What did it mean to you?
Johnson:It meant a lot on many levels to be recognized for that work. I think primarily because, for nearly three decades, I have been a proponent of affirmative action both behind the scenes and in front of the camera and politically. Seventeen years of these three decades have been spent specifically to support and negotiate groups of protected actors in the context of contract and wage negotiations and working conditions and conditions on the set. For women, people of color, actors with disabilities, LGBT. I’ve been doing this for quite some time and being recognized for that kind of defense really means a lot to me. Because, in addition to my husband, my family and my friends, positive action and equality are very, very important to me. I spend most of my time defending those who are not allowed to defend themselves. Getting that recognition meant a lot.
Soaps.com: How has diversity in the industry improved or not over your long career?
Johnson: I would be untrue if I said it hasn’t improved. It definitely has. We see more diversity in the night, during the day, in feature films … well, the feature film is reprehensible so let’s just stick to television. We certainly see a lot more than ever, but it has become so marginalized. It has become, as we use in the area of affirmative action, it has become rather ‘ghettoized’. You have very few viewers of a very specific type of entertainment.
Before the start of the cable, social media and the Internet there were three or four networks in which there was a concentration of viewers. People of color and women of a certain age and actors with disabilities got more coverage at that time if we were lucky enough to be invited to play on the playing field. There are now five hundred channels. While there may be more employment, wage compression and payments, the audience is smaller because it is so fragmented. With the same breath I can say: ‘Yes, there are more people of color, more women over the age of 35, more disabled and more transgender, gay and identified people are working, we are earning less and we are seen by fewer people. I just don’t know: take one step and take ten steps back, but there have been improvements.
Where there has been absolutely no improvement is behind the camera. Women are not yet asked to lead. People of color aren’t in the writers’ room yet. People of color and women of a certain age are not yet in decision-making positions based on our statistics. There is a lot of work to be done.
Soaps.com: What would it take to consider a more important role during the day?
Johnson: I guess, a role. An invitation to play. It is not in my hands. But good entertainment is good entertainment. All lines have been outlined. No, ‘Oh my God. You’re doing the night. Oh my God. You’re making the day. ‘A good role is a good role.
Soaps.com: Is there anything else you can reveal about your upcoming appearance in ‘Days’?
Johnson: Of course I don’t have to ask fans to watch because this is probably the most loyal viewer base you can find. I think it’s a shame that there are so few soap operas. First of all, it is one of the largest training grounds for young actors. Because that’s when you really need to know your lines and know what you’re doing. It is a wonderful training ground. More importantly, the programming that has replaced daytime soaps is so sparse. It does not provide anything. It does not provide entertainment. It’s cotton candy. There is no substance or sustainability in this. I just hope people keep watching ‘Days’ and the other remaining soap operas so that this art form remains. Why is it so important.
For some years I was my mother’s caregiver. She was quite ill. I spent eight and a half months in the hospital and then took her home to take care of her at home. Me and his other assistants and even when we were in the hospital, entertainment and distraction and is almost a comfort food for those who are locked up. For those who are sick. For those who are alone. For those who have no other means of entertainment. Soaps have brought so much joy to the viewer and to these people that they had no other choice of communication or relationships. This is what people don’t understand. This is what these decision makers don’t understand, that soap operas bring such a level of community. If nothing else I just hope ‘Days’ fans remain fans, so this kind of form of
Soaps.com: Soap operas connect generations. It’s something you can talk to your grandmother and mother about, what happened to your soap.
Johnson: Exactly! And you can’t watch it without limits, which is great. I think binge-watching has ruined the entertainment. You can’t look at the soaps. I think it helps the essence of the fourth wall and the suspense. I just think it’s an important art form that needs to be supported.
