Get To Know Elissa:

Which fictional characters would you want to hang out with? My choice would be a long lunch with two of my absolute favorites: Anne Shirley and Don Quixote. Can you imagine? They would just adore each other! Anne would order the entire menu just to taste a bite of everything, Don Quixote would challenge the waiter to a duel and we would probably get kicked out before dessert.

What TV show do you never miss? I've been watching the soapy antics unfold on General Hospital since I was in middle school. Watching Sonny, Carly, Luke, the Quartermaines and the rest of the cast get into and out of (and back into) trouble is a daily treat I never miss. Plus, I think growing up on the complicated plot lines helped make me into a perfect editor for RT, as I am very well equipped to untangle even the messiest of family sagas.
