Welcome - we are the web's first and leading resource for all things on the beautiful & talented actress Natalie Hall. You may know her from the daytime soap All My Children where she portrays Colby Chandler. Here you will find everything Natalie is up to along with the most up-to-date news & the largest gallery housing over 9,000 stunning photos.
Here we have Nat’s March episodes. March was a rather fun month for me watching Colby on-screen. I loved her video blogs as she basically talked about the betrayal between her mother and boyfriend… it was heartbreaking at times watching her just spill out all this emotion she had inside. I liked Asher being there as a sounding board for her about what’s going on in her life. The scenes Nat did with JR (Jacob), Liza (Jamie), & Erica (Susan Lucci) were a lot of fun to watch. I really felt for her when JR was telling her that she had to stop airing her dirty laundry as it made the family look bad. The 16th was my absolute favorite episode and Natalie stole the show from the opening with her singing, to the fun scenes with Damon, the meaty emotional looks at Confusion and much more. All around it was a great episode.
It’s time to play catch-up and batch in all of our caps from Nat’s airdates for the past few months so get ready!
Sadly Nat only had 7 airdates but she knocked it out of the park when she finally realized the dark secret her mother was hiding in regards to her boyfriend Damon. I really hope next year those scenes get Natalie a Daytime Emmy nomination.
Natalie did a small interview with Soap Opera Digest/Weekly Online and talked a bit about her relationship with General Hospital star Brandon Barash (Johnny). She sounds like she’s in such a good place and I’m so happy for her and will continue to respect her relationship and privacy. I’ll add two of my favorite Q&A’s from Nat then link you to the full article that has more.
Weekly: What factors apply as to when you decide to tell people about yourselves, i.e., to go public? Hall: I was a little uncomfortable [about doing it] at first. I am a very quiet person — almost a loner — when it comes to my social and private life. I have a small group of friends in my life, but they’re the best friends anyone could ask for. When we came out and made it public, we had only been with one another a short amount of time, so how silly would it be if we told people and then broke up?! But I knew in a short time of knowing him [that] he is such a genuine, kind, honest guy, who has poured his soul out to me; has told me all his secrets [and] life lessons. He is so passionate with our relationship, so in the end, I knew it was the right thing. He is an amazing, talented guy. I am honored to stand next to him, hold his hand and say he is my boyfriend.
Weekly: Is it easier when both people are on a soap? Hall: I don’t think it would make a difference where we work. It’s easy in the sense that we both understand our situations, and know that we sometimes have 30 pages of lines to learn in one night. And let me say…I make a great Lisa Niles, and recently, I have been playing Anthony, Brandon’s father on the show, every night. A couple of weeks ago, Brandon did a wonderful Annie Chandler! He would have made Melissa Claire Egan proud.
How cute is she? I love that she’s an awesome Dr. Lisa Niles and is now doing the role [practicing lines of course] of Anthony Z! To read the full article click here.
