"For Kelley Menighan Hensley of Old Tappan, who has played Emily Stewart since 1992, that realism took getting used to. The actress, who'd grown up on ABC soaps and had never seen ATWT, checked it out before testing for the show.... Hensley, who met her husband, actor Jon Hensley (Holden Snyder), on ATWT, came to love being part of the show."
