Q: How do you feel about the possibility of your son [Jameson Ivor Frakes] becoming an actor someday? Also, do you have any plans to work with your husband, Jonathan Frakes, like you did in NORTH AND SOUTH?
A: "If Jameson wants to go into the business, and he's quite passionate about it, I certainly wouldn't stop him. But I'm going to be passionate about him finishing his schooling first. I feel it's extremely important to have a good education. I believe that if I'd had some college credits behind me, it would have been easier for me to do some different things with my career. A good education is something you have with you all your life. And no matter which profession you choose, you can only benefit that much more from it. Jonathan and I have nothing planned right now. We were expecting to do Love Letters, but then the baby came along, so we had to put that off for a while. My goal is to be in something and have Jonathan direct me."
(Ed. Note: Although Francis and Frakes first announced that their son's name was Benjamin, a GH spokesperson says the couple changed their minds. The baby is now called Jameson.)
Thanks to Nancy for sending me this!
