Speaking to Soap Opera Digest in an interview, the actor put it this way, “I think we are a better show whenever Eileen Davidson is around. It doesn’t mean that were are not good without her, because we are great, but she just adds so much more. She brings a lot to the floor, not only for storyline but crew wise, too. She’s the first person to say good morning to everybody in the morning. She’s a professional and a great actress, too.”

Jason adds, “Eileen has a ton of history with the show so as soon as she comes on set, it just comes off of her in such a great way. You know you are dealing with somebody that has been around for a long time and definitely belongs here. She acts at a level that’s inspiring. Any time that she can be around here is a good day. At least we still get her every once in a while. Whenever I have worked with her it’s always been a good time. She’s one of our biggest assets.”
