"We try to think of this as only a job," Martinez says. "You know, people come and go. But we still have a horrible fear of that day ever coming because we have a great relationship. As daytime actors we are asked to make out with each other all day and then pretend it doesn't matter. Luckily we're able to express our affection for each other in this way and yet not have it threaten our normal lives. What we have is true love - it's just different."


"A is the most brilliant, dedicated and talented man I know. I admire him, I respect him, and I love him with all my heart."
Marcy Walker

 

"What can I say? Not only is she smart, funny, beautiful, sexy and talented. She knows what she wants and is willing to work her butt off to get it. Other than that, the girl has very little going for her."
A Martinez

 

"A and I were given the scripts for the wedding and we decided that we wanted to rewrite the vows. After four years, the audience had come to expect more from Cruz and Eden than your standard "to have and to hold" exchange, and A and I felt that the words should really come from the characters' hearts. When we were actually saying the vows, they really took on a special meaning. It was as if A and I were standing up in front of friends and affirming how lucky we were to work together. Afterwards the studio was flooded with phone calls from viewers wanting to know where those vows were taken from."
Marcy Walker

 

Contrary to so many actors of soaps who shoot in bad harmony, A Martinez has the luck to be able to regard Marcy Walker as his best friend: "We are very close, without any ambiguity in our relationship. We respect one another a lot and Leslie, my wife, often goes shopping with Marcy. Our children have also become friends. The truth is always what it was on camera. When, on the show, Cruz couldn't console himself from the disappearance of Eden who he believed was dead, Marcy decided not to speak to me for a few weeks. We even avoided eachother in the studio. As I really missed her, I could play it with even more sincerity. I felt a true sorrow. Sometimes I didn't sleep at night because of it!"
A Martinez

 

Quote that Marcy made during a TV Guide Interview back in 1997. The questions was, You were the leading lady of Santa Barbara. On AMC, Susan Lucci is clearly queen. Do you miss being No. 1?
Her answer was: No. I miss A [Martinez]. I know that we were the No. 1 focus all those years. People really loved that couple, we had volumes of good stories, we were the first two anyone wanted to photograph. I know all that to be true. But if you sifted it all down, the most precious part wasn't the recognition, the magazine covers, the Emmy, it was what I got to do every day with A. I could be in the No. 1 spot at AMC, and it wouldn't be as magical and precious or as satisfying. Susan is the foundation of this show, and nobody thinks differently. That's not my place, and I'm happy that's not my place. I had that, and I had it where I was supposed to have it.
Marcy Walker

 

Marcy was asked which character was her favorite to play.
Well, Eden will always remain a favorite in my heart simply because I got to work in such a great, comfortable, creative atmosphere with A Martinez and we had a wonderful relationship, we had a lot of respect for each other as actors and a devoted friendship that probably will never die and its rare to have those EVER that you can say, spiritually that you had a connection just as people and that we had an admiration for each other; so because of that I think that Eden will always be probably one of my favorites ever of all time."
Marcy Walker

 

"We're friends, good friends, I love Marcy. She's a marvelous actress, and I admire her."
A Martinez

 

"A's dressing room looks like a tornado has hit it. He has stuff in there from 1984. He keeps everything. Every letter, every picture, every magazine, every poster, every newspaper article. Anything he has accumulated at work gets into his dressing room. His dressing room is a shambles! So Mary Anderson (SB publicist) and I decided that for his birthday this past year, we would go down and clean his room. Not a good plan at all (laughing). He didn't know where anything was. We didn't throw anything away. All we did was put all the mail in one area, all the magazines in a stack. We dusted and cleaned all his little objects d'art. We made it look nice so he had some counter space. He walked in and was like, 'What...what...what are you doing?' So for his next birthday, we declined the offer. Next time he gets a card, not a maid!"
Marcy Walker

 

"I admire, respect and adore A. We have a wonderful working relationship and he brings out the best in me."
Marcy Walker

 

"A and I practice hard. We want our scenes to be perfect." Marcy Walker

 

"A and I have a mutual respect for one another. We want to do good work every day. And we genuinely like each other, too. That adds to our screen chemistry. It would be torture to have to do heavy love scenes with someone you really didn't like!"
Marcy Walker

 

"You learn a lot about each other when you work together for a number of years. A and I climbed the mountain. Parting ways from him was one of the hardest things I ever had to do."
Marcy Walker

 

"It would be a shame if all relationships on soaps were only created by the writers. We were doing all those wonderful scenes and we knew it was working, but they (the producers) wanted us to hate each other. They said, 'You're a WASP, and he's a Mexican. We don't know if the audience will take it.' I said, 'It works and they love it. Do it.' We had been doing it for six months before they wrote it for us. A and I are friends. I trust him and he trusts me. I would never do anything to make it a non-respectful relationship. We just know that we have the freedom to express our emotion and sexuality and know it's not going anywhere. It's above board. It's a pleasure to work with him. He's the single most interesting person that I've ever worked with."
Marcy Walker

 

"I trust A with our love scenes. He's married, not some weird, swinging single. We're friends. Of course we've gone through our rocky periods, because of the different motivations we've had for our scenes together. But through it all, we have always respected each other. That shows in our work." Marcy Walker

 

"I never thought I would ever work with someone as great as he is. He's a very seasoned actor, but there's something that's really open and calming that sort of plays upon your emotions. He works with everyone so well. You can put any actor with him, and he's gonna shine, and he'll make the other person shine too! All of that is attributed to A because he's so open. I feel honored to work with him because everything we do has such magic to it. I look at stupid little scenes that I think are real nothing scenes, because we fly right through them, but when I watch them on screen, 'Wow! That was really something special'! I can't say that I've had that with everyone I ever worked with. I think he's great."
Marcy Walker

 

"I definitely think A is more the perfect man (than Cruz). He's not as complex as Cruz. A is very much the take charge type, but he has grace about doing it. A lot of times it's imperative to take charge. When A does, you hardly even know he's doing it. He's got a lot of class. I can see A as the perfect guy. He's a great father; he cares about his wife; he's responsible, caring, supportive, sensitive, and gentle. He has a lot of wonderful qualities. I've seen a lot more dimension in A over the years than I've seen in Cruz. A is one of my best confidants. He's easy to talk to and he gives great advice. He's also a pretty smart guy, too."
Marcy Walker

 

"I think that the reason A is so appealing is because he's not pretentious at all. He's a very loving and giving person. The thing about A is he's got such a gentleness of spirit. You can't imagine not being attracted to him when you meet him - just as a person. He's so reachable. There's something really grand about knowing someone like that in your life."
Marcy Walker

 

"If you think of the greatest relationship with a man you've ever had, and you think of it without being intimate, that's how it is. It's one in a million that you can have a really open, fun, supportive relationship with a male and not think of being attracted to them in any way other than friends. I just think he's a great human being." Marcy Walker
"A and I discovered early on in the game that there was an unspoken work ethic we both shared. And our acting methods; the way we approach a scene, etc. are very, very similar. That has been the saving grace many a time. It I had a problem with a scene, it's almost like we both adjusted mentally...we don't have to talk about it. I'll know before I even come in in the morning, having read the script the night before, I'll know exactly what lines A is going to change. I know him, I know him like I know Cruz."
Marcy Walker

 

"A is a perfect still-life of integrity -- a simply marvelous human being with charm and grace. Everyone who has the pleasure of meeting him falls in love with him. I miss being in his presence terribly."
Marcy Walker

 

"You know, people come and go. But we still have a horrible fear of that day ever coming because we have a great relationship. As daytime actors we are asked to make out with each other all day and then pretend it doesn't matter. Luckily we're able to express our affection for each other in this way and yet not have it threaten our normal lives. What we have is true love - it's just different."
A Martinez

 

"I can describe Marcy in one word - brave!" he said. "She's a wonderful actress who can handle any scene. I never worry when I'm working with her. I know we can get through anything together." 1986 or 87.
A Martinez

 

" A great deal is always at stake in this demanding profession and you have to maintain a professional approach. I come here every day with a serious attitude. Marcy is a treasure, much more than a friend. She and I make up one of the most important relationships I've ever had
A Martinez

 

"Who's the most beautiful woman on the soaps? I work with her (Marcy Walker). During our wedding scene, the sun backlit her veil, which drove me crazy because I couldn't see her eyes. Marcy knows the power of stillness
A Martinez

 

A Martinez on why he and Marcy Walker were able to make their characters into a supercouple: "Part of it was luck. We happen to approach acting from very similar points of view. But, more important, is the fact that we genuinely care for each other." "Marcy and I hit it off great. We created a back story of what our history had been beyond what was written on the page. I think the audience can really tell if you like each other. It's in your eyes. She's a great lady."
A Martinez

 

A was asked, What is your best memory of Santa Barbara.?
Certainly one of them was the first day that I actually was able to laugh in front of a camera in my whole career. I had gotten pretty good at pretending to laugh, but one day, Marcy W. did something so enchanting and so surprising that I actually experienced a genuine moment of delight while performing.
A Martinez

 

A was asked, What was the funniest Outtake you can remember with Marcy Walker?
"Well, the funniest thing I remember is that one day I had to leave the house in a storm (Cruz) and they had the wind machine, the rain machine, and I was wearing a long overcoat and I couldn't get out of the door without the coat getting stuck in the door when I tried to close it. I kept trying to keep the coat out of the door, plants were falling down. One thing after the other, and another, and finally the wall that was adjacent to the door fell down. It took a while to get enough sobriety to do the scene - it made everyone just fall apart".
A Martinez

 

"The thought of not seeing A everyday tears me up. Ive known and loved A for longer than Ive had a boyfriend or husband, longer than Ive owned a house or car. Hes more than a close friend, hes like a brother to me. We know each so well we almost know what the other is thinking. If A had left the show, I wouldve left soon afterwards. It's kind of romantic the way I think of A. It wouldnt seem right for him to be saying I love you to any other character."
Marcy Walker

 

"We share a history that is so deep and so rich that we'll be carrying feelings for each other until the end of our lives. I feel a bond with her (Marcy Walker) that I don't have with anyone else and she knows it."
A Martinez

 

"Working with Marcy is magic, people who have known me all my life and thought of me as a good actor, think that the work I'm doing with her is way beyond anything I've ever done before. With her, I'm able to really, genuinely laugh in front of a camera and I've never been able to do that in my life. It's because of the comfort, the trust, the security. We run, we fly, we dance. It's just so much fun."
A Martinez

 

1994
"I still keep my finger on all the soaps. Some of it is wonderful, some of it, terrible. I watched (former co-star) Marcy Walker the other day doing a scene with Rick Hearst ('Guiding Light')," Martinez pauses, "and I was mesmerized."
A Martinez

 

1994
"I actually dreamed I was on the show (GL)," he admits. "Marcy's character (Walker, who plays GL's Tangie) was getting married to somebody and I was standing at a fence. She saw me and gave me a beautiful smile."
A Martinez

Heading - A Martinez Not Burning Daytime Bridges, Chicago Tribune

"I expect I'll do daytime again. It was the high point of my life as an actor," Martinez says from his Los Angeles home, where he lives with his wife, Leslie, and their three children. "I did everything I could ever have wanted to on 'Santa Barbara.' Cruz was a great gift, a match with my natural rhythms, the
way I'm set up emotionally. I miss him a lot. I still think of him as my friend.

October 27, 1993
BPI Entertainment News Wire

Rumor has it that A Martinez, ex-Cruz of "Santa Barbara," is
showing interest in returning to daytime; not to "Santa Barbara" but to "Guiding Light."

This comes in the aftermath of "GL" recently hiring his former
castmate Marcy Walker (ex-Eden, "Santa Barbara.")

"I fantasize myself on 'GL' all the time," says Martinez,
"It's just wonderful to act in quality scenes several days a
week. It's parked firmly in my hierarchy of possibilities."
