Eric Braeden talked with TV Guide Canada’s, Nelson Branco about his 30 years as playing the iconic Victor Newman.  From past and present storyline arcs, to his contract dispute, it’s all here. Below are just a few great excerpts!

Braeden on if its feels like he has been working on Y&R as Victor for 30 years: “It feels like a blur. It doesn’t feel like 30 years. I have no sense of it. I’ve been working in the same surroundings forever — the same dressing room, the same two sound stages, the same studio, and largely the same cast. A lot hasn’t changed in these past three decades. It’s the nature of the beast. You see, I never invested myself emotionally in this job so I wouldn’t get hurt. As actors, you have to put up certain defences because people do come and go. So when people in the industry say, “we’re all family here,” it’s all really just bullshit. I never identified with that kind of fantastical thinking. In show business, it’s always best to be on your toes. And realistic.”

Braeden on if Victor really loves his evil son, Adam: “That’s a fascinating question because it’s a hard one to answer. I, Eric Braeden, find it unimaginable for a parent not to love their children. I find the disowning of your child a horrific idea. But I’m sure there are parents out there that would say, “You have to be in my shoes. My daughter or son have committed heinous crimes.” I really don’t know. Honestly, I hope I am never faced with Victor’s circumstances in this regard. I have decided to play Victor’s relationship with Adam with a little bit of a conflict and not so black and white.”
