Speaking to Soap Opera Digest in a new interview, Kate said that she certainly feels like she’s at home on the set of General Hospital, even though she’s coming from Days of Our Lives. The talented actress told the publication, “When I started, I came in and met my [on-screen] family. I met Nancy [Lee Grahn, Alexis] and Kelly [Monaco, Sam]. Nancy couldn’t have been sweeter and we had some really great first scenes. From day one, I knew that I was in the right place, for sure.”

Now, as far as how she got into the mindframe of being the new Kristina, Kate says that she definitely did her research. She put it this way, “I spoke with a couple of people at GH who really helped me with that and I took extensive notes, and there were a couple of specific episodes that Mark [Teschner, casting director] and Frank [Valentini, executive producer] wanted me to watch, so I did that. And then, just like I did when I took over Abigail, I just really did some research and spoke to the writers and people that could sort of steer me in the right direction. The way I work, it’s best to sort of just sit back and listen and little things, these little nuggets, will sort of stand out to you that you can hook onto. And also, being on set, Nancy and Kelly, everyone that I was working with, was so great in terms of, like, ‘Oh, this is a thread that will come back up again,’ and sort of keeping me posted on that stuff.”

And just like her new on-screen character, Kate says that she’s also a dreamer who is closer to her family members. She said, “And I also have a really strong family — I have a blood sister and several stepsisters and there is nothing like the sister dynamic! You would die for them, but no one else can get under your skin the same way. I’m so grateful to have that and I love working with Kelly. The first day we worked together, Nancy kept looking at us in between scenes and being like, ‘Wow, you guys really could be sisters. This is, like, remarkable!”
