Catching up with John-Paul Lavoisier (ex-Philip, DAYS OF OUR LIVES) at Starstruck’s YesterDAYS Fan Event, November 10th, 2017.
WHAT DID YOU ENJOY THE MOST ABOUT PLAYING “PHILIP ON DAYS OF OUR LIVES?
John-Paul: I’ve always sort of wanted to play an uptight businessman. One of my favorite movies is called “Glengarry Glen Ross”. Al Pacino, Alan Arkin, Ed Harris. I got to bring some of my love of Glengarry Glen Ross into Philip’s mannerisms and the way he spoke.
IF YOU COULD PLAY ANY OTHER CHARACTER ON DAYS BESIDES PHILIP, WHO WOULD YOU WANT TO PLAY?
John-Paul: Shawn. I’ll play the other guy. And Brandon can play Philip. Let’s flip them. See what happens.
WHAT PROJECTS ARE GOING ON FOR YOU RIGHT NOW THAT YOU CAN TELL US ABOUT?
John-Paul: Later this month and next year, there’s going to be a project called Crazy Bitches coming out. It’s a webseries and a film. It’s going to be a campy horror comedy thing. I’m going to be in the webseries and the film. And I’m excited for that. So Crazy Bitches.
WHAT MESSAGE DO YOU HAVE FOR YOUR FANS WHO HAVE FOLLOWED YOU THROUGHOUT YOUR ACTING CAREER?
John-Paul: Maybe I’ll be back.
