Emmy Nomination Interview at CBS.com, May 2008

 

Trent Dawson (Henry)
Nominee for Outstanding Supporting Actor

CBS.com: Congratulations! How does it feel to be nominated once again?
TRENT DAWSON: It feels as good as it did the last two times. Itís great, it feels very good.

CBS.com: Where were you when you found out?
TRENT DAWSON: I think the same place I was last year, on my couch at home.

CBS.com: The couch must be a lucky spot.
TRENT DAWSON: You know I guess it is. I didnít think about it that way. Maybe I can bring the couch to the award ceremony and give me some luck there. Iíll just put the couch on the stage and hang out.

CBS.com: You can say that you are passing on bringing a date so you can bring your couch.
TRENT DAWSON: Thatís another thing; I am not bringing a date this year. They are jinks. No dates, no parents, nothing. I am going completely alone.

CBS.com: What scenes did you submit this year?
TRENT DAWSON: I submitted one with Vienna (Ewa Da Cruz) and Henry when they are trying to escape Oakdale and Henry is a limo driver. It was well-written and funny. It was when Ewa and I were really starting to get our comedic timing together. You know it ends with him making love to her in the backseat of the limo. The other one I chose was the bachelor party before the wedding that I walked out on. It had a nice arch to it and involved the old heartbreak of Henry and Katie; it was a nice journey.
