1Deep smooth voice
2Frequently stars in soap operas
1[Who talked about Julie London coming to work everyday, on Emergency! (1972), being around with technical advisors, knowing her lines, using the medical dictionary, being responsible for several writings of the scripts, and was the consummate professional]: Absolutely, she was the consummate professional, who knew all of her lines with other actors, and she also used the medical dictionary for her role.
2[Of Julie London]: I don't know if it was up to her, but Kevin and I had both kept calm by her personality, when we were shooting in the hospital. Bobby Troup only knew who she was - she was just like Julie. She made us laughing!
3[on the later deaths of his professional on- and off-screen relationships with singers/actors Bobby Troup and Julie London, who played Dr. Joe Early, MD and Nurse Dixie "Dix" McCall, RN, respectively]: Bobby Troup and Julie London ... it was a killer when he passed away and Julie, too. It was like a real end of an era for us ... I still think about them and those times when Bobby was telling me how he wrote the song, "Route 66", and what he was going through ... I remember saying, 'Randy remember every word he is telling you' ... Julie London was so great, and she always referred to herself as a 'broad'. My fondest memory of her was the sheer joy of working with her ... she always had this droll sense of humor and I also remember sitting in their home [they were married from 1960 until he died in 1999; she was previously married to Jack Webb from 1947-1953]. It was this typical L.A. sprawling house in the hills overlooking the Valley and there were all these photos of Frank Sinatra and others ... I remember sitting there thinking I have been allowed to enter this sanctum that most people don't ever get to see. It was really neat.
4[When asked if he ever had a crush on Julie London, while doing the Emergency! (1972) series]: Johnny's relationship with Dixie, he loved her! She was always ... a lot of people would say, 'Hey, did you have a crush on Julie London?' She was 2 years younger than my mom. No, I didn't have a crush on her; but; I loved her! I loved her and Bobby so much and that love was reciprocated and Kevin ... we were like their sons.
5[on his Loving (1983) character]: I don't want to make him a villain. First of all, I don't think anyone is all bad or all good; there are shades of human behavior and I think a character is more interesting and more credible if you show those shadings.
6My son's up to no good, and really no good, and I'm sorta [I guess] in a state of denial. I can't believe that my son's doing something like this, and I've been pretty much hiding him out and financing him, behind my wife's back, and turns out that was a big mistake on my part.
7[on playing someone else besides "Johnny Gage"]: I got recognized when I was on Emergency! (1972), but nothing like I do now as "Clay". People seem to have a tendency to take the soaps much more seriously and reality identify on a personal basis much more than they do on prime-time. I'll be riding home on the subway and these ladies will come up to me and lecture me about how I should deal with "Ava".
8[When he arrived from Santa Barbara to Los Angeles to become an actor]: This town let me be an actor. They've always said, 'Randy? Yeah, let's see what he can do.' Hollywood never said, 'Let's see what he can do,' they said, 'I know what he can do. I don't need to see him.'
9People tell me this all the time...they come up to me and say, 'You're my hero,' I say no. I'm just the face. You're the body. You do the work. You're on the front line. Believe me, when I tell you from the bottom of my heart -- if you're a EMT...a paramedic -- you're my hero.
