Episode 12-Patrika Darbo
This week on Hold the Drama, host Alison Robertson sits down with the Emmy award winning Patrika Darbo. I don’t think I’m exaggerating when I say she is one of the Divas of daytime. She talks about her ups and downs in the business and what she tells herself and anyone else walking out of an audition feeling a little down, “If you weren’t talented, you wouldn’t be in the room.” She also goes down memory lane and shares about the amazing people she has had the pleasure to work with. This is a woman who has put her stamp on this business in the best way. Please Enjoy!
