Speaking to People in a new interview, Camryn made it no secret that she is absolutely proud to be part of such a historic moment. She also said that this storyline has touched plenty of fans out there, too. She said, “I’ve been so moved over the years about how many different stories I’ve heard — that a fan had a family member watch ‘Teriah’ and now they are able to explain their own relationship to them better, or our love helped them come out.It has been really beautiful and humbling because you really understand the weight of what you do. This is a really proud moment for the show, and I hope there will be some really juicy storylines to keep the connection going strong on screen.”
What’s more, Camryn said that Tessa and Mariah’s relationship has resonated with her in a big way, too. “I feel especially honored to be a part of this moment because I understand the importance of it. It’s like the best coffee you could ever have going into a scene because you know what this isn’t just a couple talking, it’s also representing on screen so many people who haven’t really had that opportunity to be themselves, and every time I come to work I am reminded of that,” she added.
