Conner Floyd Marks 1-Year as Y&R’s Chance, Sharing: “Thanks For All The Love and Support “

Photo: JPI

The Young and the Restless Conner Floyd is celebrating his first anniversary with the top-rated CBS soap opera in the role of Chance Chancellor.

Floyd, who has now established himself with the cast and in story, told Soap Opera Digest in his first interview with them back in November of 2021: “I’m excited to be around all of this talent and soak up as much as I can from these savvy vets.The first couple of weeks were crazy, but I feel like I’m figuring this out and finding my rhythm.”

Now a year later, (Floyd starting taping Y&R in October of 2021), the actor took to his Instagram with a special nod and thank you, relating: “One year in Genoa City. Thanks for all the love and support.”

Michael Fairman TV had the pleasure of speaking with Conner along with on-screen lady love Melissa Ordway (Abby), after he first appeared on Y&R and Chance’s return began to play itself.  You can check out that interview on the Michael Fairman Channel, or watch it below.

So, glad Conner has made it through one year of soap opera boot camp and is now thriving at Y&R? Share your thoughts in the comment section.

Just like Ray, he hangs around the Coffee shop, has coffee, has no storyline.

Don’t forget the endless weeks of haggling about his bonding issues with Domicile (or whatever his name is) and his attraction to bad-news Chelsea. Too bad he’s such a dullard because Conner is really gorgeous.

Well, can see the signs already. He’s finally getting sick of his spoiled brat of a wife and will jump in to a worse situation with Chelsea.i don’t get why all the men fall for her loony crap. She needs to be committed again. With stalking Johnny and making Conner miserable, it’s not tight. Y

My word, Violet, Miss Chelsea is beginning to scare me. That quick-trigger paranoia she displayed on Friday was REALLY creepy. Does she really think Chance, Sharon, and Adam all got together in the space of five minutes to stage some weird intervention at a coffee house? Wow! I feel great empathy for sufferers of mental illness, as my family has experienced it. It’s terribly painful and confusing, to put it mildly. Chelsea is there; she needs help… yesterday.

Yes, she’s getting worse, stalking Johnny now, poor kid, he’s no match for her.At least Conner isn’t with her full time. She’s coming unglued alright. Maybe Chance can distract her by letting her run her hands through his hair now and then.

Wish Y&R would really give Chance agency and a spotlight. His PTSD storyline was downplayed when there could have been so much more. You have a handsome actor and a vital character with so much legacy. And why are Genoa City police people made so inconsequential?

The best Chance yet and hes settling in very naturally! He’s easy on the eyes and has plenty of charm. Abby , Melissa Ordway I feel also finally found a partner she had chem with! Would love to see him and Adam have a beer together because I know they had history back in Vegas and in general or even with Billy , Lily and Abby since all four go way back. Just normal scenes of characters who don’t always interact together instead of those only in storyline s together. I remember Bell used to do that with Michael ,… Read more »

I agree, Damien. I liked Adam having a friend, something his power-mad sister Victoria has never managed. Nick has already abused Adam’s efforts to reconcile, helping Nick with his PTSD, so there goes that relationship. I’d love a bromance with Chance and Adam. GH has had several sweet bromances: Drew and Curtis; Chase and Michael before Mikey showed his true, traitorous colors; Sonny and Jason; Jason and Spinelli. Most men are capable of being more than childish rivals even if Nick Newman isn’t.

Right?! The only tired angle Josh Griffith brought to Adam vs Nick was reconciling them and having them lean on each other after Nick killed Ashland supposedly. I liked Adam and Nick as brothers and was hoping they d team up against Daddy . But it seems Griffith had no where to go but put Sally into the fold and now Nick has become sleazy and unrecognizable. I never thought Josh Morrow could be anything but sexy but in this latest hoorah he comes across as a pedophile. It’s that gross. Nick and Sally is sick There was the scene… Read more »

This is what JM calls a storyline any time he is rolling around on a couch or floor or desk top with the newest gal.

Glad you mentioned that “work date” between Sally and Nick. How about when he started sniffing her perfume? Reminded me of Trusty the bloodhound from LADY AND THE TRAMP. Of course in this case, Nick and Sally are both tramps. Is it just me or does Noah’s new club (apparently bankrupt after only one night) resemble an airport terminal waiting room, complete with a full bar? And that dancing? I’ve seen smoother choreography at the Indy 500. And Kyle’s “moves” on the dance floor are second only to Elaine’s on SEINFELD.

He is a nice guy who just doesnt fit into the show. But he is a cop and they dont do well in a show full of crooked business people! We have one cop in town who is relevant and thats Paul. Paul who, right?

Do not like this guy—-zero personality—what exactly does he do? He is a “fill-in” husband for Abby who does not seem to exude any attraction/sensuality with any of her past and present male partners. I guess they’re meant for each other—-insipid!!

Don’t follow closely. Just viewed or a long time. Chance and Noah are both appealing for me as actors and personally. Not sure how Aly sits with me. I keep following the shares in the public offering and don’t have enough background. No idea who this new man is — Mrs. Chancellor’s son? Think Nick and Sally don’t have any particular chemistry; just angst from Nick killing a person and Sally from breakup with Adam. Also, not meant unkindly, but Nick has played a rather background role for quite a while. His acting skills could use a little brush up.… Read more »

Nick is a lot better character when he is his own man and not under his bitchy big sister’s thumb. She likes running his private life as well as the business part. I’m wondering how long he’ll take her interference in his life. P.S, his acting skills are fine, it’s the lousy scripts he’s given.

I appreciate your comments. Nick just seems a little stiff for me, but always appreciate his presence. On the other hand, minus the months with Ashland which just didn’t seem to fit into the scheme of things, Victoria has had stellar performances as she slowly morphs into her father.

Marcus Coloma On His GH Exit: “I Don’t Know Why That Decision Was Made, But I Don’t Feel Any ill Will and I Didn’t Feel I Got Fired”

This week, GH fans saw Adam Huss returning to the ABC soap opera as Nikolas Cassadine to finish out the rest of the scenes originally intended to be played by Marcus Coloma who ended his three-year run on the show a tad early.

As has been previously reported, Coloma came down with Covid-19 as his final tape days neared, and a decision was made for him to not return to finish off his last run of episodes.

With all the rumors and stances taken by everyone involved, Coloma was the special guest on this week’s episode of the That’s Awesome Podcast hosted by Steve Burton and Bradford Anderson and discussed his departure from the long-running daytime drama series.

Marcus expressed that when he took the role on GH, he was excited to be in that kind of environment (working on a soap opera), and only signed on for three years.  However, as time went by it became more difficult to reconcile leaving when his contract was up, sharing: “You fall in love with the crew and everybody along with it. So, two and a half years in, this decision that was so clear in the beginning is getting complicated.”

The actor added that while, “I knew the end was coming, it wasn’t like GH was saying, ‘Hey, Marcus, we want you to stay.’  There was no negotiation … and all I can say to that is I don’t know why that decision was made, but I don’t feel any ill will and I didn’t feel like I got fired. It just felt like … there was maybe an understanding that I was going to be there for three years. The big surprise is how much it hurt. Even though I knew I was going to leave.”

In the end, Coloma reflected that this may have concluded as it should, adding, “I really do have some big goals and those goals would have never been realized if I would have stayed. That’s not to take anything away from GH because I admire everything about it.”

Watch the episode of That’s Awesome featuring Coloma below.

Then weigh-in, what do you think of Marcus’ thoughts on his exit as GH’s Nikolas Cassadine? Share your thoughts in the comment section.
