On-Air On Soaps, Michael Fairman, 2012: "But...Becky Herbst, I would love to see her win, to be honest. She has done some wonderful work! I will tell you the year I did win; she was nominated alongside me as well. I have to say, she came to me with a full heart and said, 'I am so happy for you, Genie. It has been so many years and you deserve it.' She came to me and put her arms around me and I hugged her and said, 'Your time will come. Your chance is going to come. You are young and you still have loads of time.' For an actress who has just lost the Emmy to have that much of a giving heart, is rare. So the truth is, I would really like to see Becky win this year."
