Hello everyone welcome to the Tyler chatSheri: Welcome Tyler

ty:hello everyone
Sheri: you ready ty
Sheri: Tyler I'm going to start the question for a member who couldn't make it
Sheri: This is from Anita: Tyler, being that you were once in high school and not so long ago, what is your reaction on school violence/killing and teens who have access to guns? Do you feel it could be prevented in the future for example with what just happened in Colorado.
ty: I am ready!

ty: I don't feel that it can be prevented. They obviously had some sort of abandonment issues or abuse as children to act out the way they did.
(EDITOR'S NOTE: Tyler had a very interesting answer but I lost some if it when I tried to cut and paste - I'm really sorry - if anyone at the chat can clarify this answer, please email me)

BamaJan: Hi, Tyler. :-) It's been rumored that you announced you were leaving GH when you contract was up in July. Is that true? What are you're plans?
ty: I never "announced" that I was leaving GH. That was a miss quote. I haven't made a definate decision yet.
ty:definite oops.

Lindsey: Tyler, you do an excellent job portraying Nikolas. I was wondering, if there were one thing that you could change about the character, what would it be?
ty: His clothes - he dresses like a nerd.

GapQTPie: Tyler you had some wonderful scenes between you, Laura and Leslie Lu. What's it like to be able to work with Genie Francis?
ty: It is inspiring on the highest level. She is an incredible actress.

ty: when I met you at the SOD awards
ty: just kidding

This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. : Thanks! You went to shake my hand and I got nervous and handed you a pen to sign my program!
ty: I haven't had a scary fan experience yet. I have been very fortunate so far. I am sure that I have mine coming.

martin@keynet: What was the hardest scene for you to do in the Lucky's death episodes that are showing this week.? You are totally awesome.
ty: thank you. The scene with Liz in her bedroom It was difficult to be able to take care of her feelings and show Nikolas' grief at the same timeSheri: IloveLucky (traitor *G*) - your turn just kidding you.

ilovelucky: sorry! I love Nikolas too! Any romances planned for Nikolas in the near future besides Katherine? (like maybe Emily...*g*)
ty: ha haty: Emily has her own love interest coming on to the show sometime soon. As for me that all depends on my plans for the future.
ty: Maybe Lila.

Sheri: Tyler - lol

BridgeDays: Was it hard not bringing home the sadness of playing the scenes of the aftermath of Lucky's death?
ty: No actually for the first time in my career I was able to seperate myself from what is real and what isn't. It was very self satisfying though.

This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. : Hey Tyler! What actor/actress would you most like to costar in a movie with and why?
ty: I would really like to work with Jonathon some day. I think our connection on the show would carry over well in a movie.

Lynn: Hi, Tyler! :) I read that you have an interest in writing, and I was wondering what type of writing you like to do?

ty: In the next few days.

Brandi: Hi Tyler! :-) who would you like to work with on GH that you haven't had a chance to work with yet?
