General Hospital News: Get To Know Jacqueline Grace Lopez

General Hospital spoilers say that there’s a newcomer in town and let’s just say she’s been a’blazin with fire so far. Of course, we are talking about actress Jacqueline Grace Lopez, who has just joined the cast of the hit ABC soap as her new character, Blaze. Here’s what you need to know about her!

General Hospital News: Get To Know Jacqueline Grace Lopez

Speaking to Soap Opera Digest in a new interview, Jacqueline said that she had to sing as part of her audition for her new character. She said  that she chose “Rolling in the Deep” by Adele. Jacqueline explained, “I remember I was, like, hitting my leg and it was so cute because all the producers were tapping along. I love sing- ing and it was just really fun; I didn’t get nervous about it and it was just a really cool experience. I’ve had experiences where I’ve been in rooms of people and it can be a really cold room. This was the opposite, where I was getting such good energy. Everybody is so lovely on the producing side at GH.”

Jacqueline also said that she loves having Dan Burn as her scene partner. She said, “Dan is hilarious and the sweetest guy. He is the most conscientious — like, if he has to grope me in a scene, he’s basically his own intimacy coordinator! He’s like, “Is this okay? Is that okay?” I’m like, “Oh, yeah, that’s fine, that’s cool.” He’s so sweet and laid-back and he goes with the flow, so when he puts on the Linc persona, it’s so different. People are like, ‘Linc, what a creeper!’ but Dan is the biggest teddy bear. He’s also really good at ad-libbing and improv. One time we were in the background of a scene, the mic wasn’t on us; however, we were supposed to look like we were angry with each other, and we almost ruined the take because we were joking around about turning IKEA furniture into outfits.”

General Hospital News: What’s Next For Blaze?

She continued, “We looked like we were having the worst fight in the world, but really, we were just talking about IKEA [laughs]. He is such a chameleon! He’s just the most easygoing guy and for him to turn it on and be this character who is so vile, I really commend him. I love my whole group. We all like to show up to the set early and before we rehearse, we just talk and get to know each other as the people behind the characters. I’ve just felt very welcomed. It’s just been a dream come true, working with this cast, and they’ve made it really fun for me to explore Blaze in these moments that I have with them.”

Jacqueline also said that she’s hoping to stick around for the long run as Blaze. She shared, “Oh, absolutely. It’s been so fun exploring her and every time I get the phone call saying, ‘Hey, you’re wanted for another episode,’ it’s a delight. I’m always like, ‘Yay, another day to play!’ The bittersweet situation with guest-star [roles] in general is that we get such precious time with these characters and then we have to let go of them, or at least put them on the shelf. This show has given me a character with layers and levels and depth, and if I’m given more opportunity to flesh out this character? Absolutely, sign me up!”
