Van Hansis dating history, , , list of Van Hansis relationships. Van Hansis has been in an on-screen matchup with Jake Silbermann in As the World . For the past four years Van Hansis has played Luke Snyder on wasn't until he was paired with Jake Silbermann (Noah Mayer) and became one .. a date. Unfortunately, Kurt's choice for a mate for his dad turns out to be. Got the chance to chat with “As the World Turns” on-screen lovers Van Hansis and Jake Silbermann at the SoapNET pre-Emmy party in.
A young, sensitive army brat with a passion for old films, he is studying to be a director. Noah will initially begin a relationship with Maddie only later realizing that his true feelings are for Luke. I think that is one of the reasons the character worked so well. The producers wisely created a person, who happened to be gay, struggling for self-discovery amid the obstacles and pressures of society and his disapproving father.
As The World Turns ended in and I returned to the world of auditions. I was to reprise the John Ritter role, only instead of straight pretending to be gay, Brad would be closeted gay, pretending to be straight, pretending to be gay. I have no doubt that after three years being Noah I read 3C with a different understanding than I would have had without that experience. Reading the script I felt immediately informed and able to tackle this complex character.
These experiences continue to inform my work. Aside from acting, I'm very passionate about developing new and relevant projects.
Currently I am in the process of producing my first feature length film, an adaptation of the off-Broadway play The Revival written by Samuel Brett Williams. The Revival is deeply moving story about a small town Southern Baptist preacher who meets a troubled drifter forcing him to question the entire direction of his life and moral values. I will play yet another gay role and am excited to help bring this story to life.
This is a beautiful and at times bitter story about the difficult process of actualization that people, gay or straight go through at all stages of our lives. Am I afraid of being type cast as Gay? Depends what you mean. Am I afraid of pursuing roles where the characters challenge and fascinate me? That's why I love what I do. Sadly there are still many straight talented actors who overlook many of these roles out of discomfort. In that way my past work allows me to overlook a characters sexuality in favor of story.
Interview with Van Hansis and Jake Silbermann - Oh No They Didn't!
None of these are simply about being gay. These stories reveal a variety of complex characters struggling to lead meaningful lives. I'm so thankful to have had my experiences as an actor because it's taken my career in a direction that I could not have predicted. Brett and I are currently in the process of raising money to finally bring The Revival to the screen. This staggering drama deserves to be shared with the world, "If there is a god, it will be made into a movie soon! This project is a labor of love, one I am dedicated to getting made.
The Revival examines what happens when truths are denied. Please check our kickstarter page for the full story. My friends don't watch the soap for the most part.
Just My Type
How does the day unfold once you arrive at the studio? What all transpires during a typical work day? We shoot set by set. Those are awesome days.
It depends on sets. Lots of naps are advised. Bonus if you're the one who pulled the joke: I made faces at her to try and make her crack. What is your greatest dream as an actor, the role of a lifetime that you'd like to aspire to?Van Hansis & Jake Silbermann: True Colors Fund Lunch
My greatest aspiration as an actor is too keep pushing myself and to take on challenging roles that fool people. I'm so impressed with performances that make you say "Wow! I can't believe it. Jake, you've mentioned that you "doodle". What sort of subject matters do you most often find yourself drawing, and do you know why those particular images stoke your creativity?
When I doodle it's usually one of two things: I grew up in the city, so sometimes I doodle in graffiti style. Otherwise, as a comic book fan, I'll draw a superhero. Occasionally the art student in me will take over and I'll find myself doing a still life.
In my apartment, when I am home, music is always on.

They are all genius. Right now on repeat is the soundtrack to the movie Across The Universe. My favorite track is T. Go to iTunes and buy it right now.
And of course, Stevie Wonder. Thanks for being so available to answer a few question for your nearly rabid fans. Most actors bring some part of their real experience into the role they play. What do you find useful in your own lives in creating Luke and Noah?
Luke is all about the need to be loved and accepted. I think that need is universal. Life is about acceptance from the people who you want to love you.
Anyone can relate to that. I don't bring any specific experiences to Noah. I think we can all relate to an unrequited love or a romance filled with obstacles.
Have you always wanted to be an actor? What are your long-term aspirations in the business? I want to have fun in this business and take interesting and provocative roles. Both of you have the ability to show the proper emotions in a very subtle and effective way i. Luke's knowing smile and longing look at Noah, Noah's inner pain and fear of his father. Do the two of you rehearse together to decide which facial expressions you will use to convey these emotions in a given scene?
We rehearse together to make sure we have the lines right. The acting comes when the cameras are on.
We are comfortable with each other as actors, so if one of us does something new during taping the other just rolls with it and it usually creates some nice moments.
Since couples in Oakdale tend to date, marry, have a family and divorce extremely fast, do you see Luke and Noah marrying anytime in the future? Maybe not as soon as the straight couples, but happening none-the-less!
Maybe like five years down the line they should have a kid, but not now. College has a whole slew of potential soap-worthy storylines. I think a lot of cool stories could come out of that. Are they watching and enjoying as much as the fans? My parents are so proud of me it sort of embarrasses me.
My mom cried on the red carpet at the Emmys this year when she was asked about how she felt for her son to be nominated. It was actually really nice. How far in advance do the writers and producers tell you about your storyline? Do they tell you specific details while swearing you to secrecy or just provide you with a general idea of the direction in which the story is heading?
We can talk to the producers if we want.
