Jeff Branson speaks on his return to The Young and the Restless!

Daytime Emmy winner, Jeff Branson (Ronan) will be returning to The Young and the Restless on June 26th!  Last time out, Ronan left Genoa City after the Diane Jenkins murder case was officially closed.   So what brings him back?  And why did the elusive Branson decide to make another return to the number one soap?  Well, in the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest on newsstands now, Branson fills soap fans in on what he asked of Y&R’s executive producer and head writer, Maria Arena Bell, in regard to what he was looking to play, and what he wasn’t!

Branson stated, “I don’t want it to be the same cop rigmarole where you’re doing police procedural stuff and interrogation scene after interrogation scene.  So going in this time, I asked Maria Arena Bell,  “What are you thinking?”  because I wanted it to be a little more three dimensional.  There is a lot in that storyline with Nina that hasn’t been scratched yet.  I really love working with Tricia Cast (Nina).  I feel such genuine, searing emotions every time we work together.  Since we haven’t gotten into the Nina/Ronan thing, I told Maria I would like to see a lot more of it this time and she agreed.  She said she could meet me halfway, if I could meet her half way, and here I am.”

As far as Ronan’s love life, Branson has this to share about some of his female co-stars, “I’ve shared scenes with Jennifer Landon (Heather) and I’m a big fan of her work.  I think this will bring another dimension to her character, which means the whole Ronan and Heather can be revisited again.  Liz Hendrickson (Chloe) and I have known each other for years and I think Chloe/Ronan thing is nice, too because it brings out a different side of Ronan.  It’s a chance for him to drop the frosty, crusty exterior he puts on because Chloe really gets under his skin, but in a good way.”

So who would you like to see Ronan romantically linked with? Chloe, Heather, or how about Phyllis? Would you like to see more evolution to the Ronan and Nina mother/son relationship?  Let us know your thoughts!

I want Phyllis and Ronan!!! They were HOT and she actually acted human around him, not a drooling mess like she is around Nick

I’m so glad that he wants to explore the Nina/Ronan relationship! And I love what he had to say to say about Ronan/Chloe. IA! Bring on Chlonan! They have too much chemistry to waste this time! The show needs to capitalize on it!

Ronan/Nina relationship would be great. Sex was hot with Phyllis but I don’t like him with Chloe at all. Maybe the NEW Heather?? Just glad that Jeff is back on the show.

I am so excited to have ronan back it would be nice to see ronan scenes with all of the woman in his life like phyllis & chloe & heather & nina and to see his nick get into each other face that would be awesome and to see the relationship between mother/ son.

Martha

Yes I definately want to see the Nina/Ronan relationship explored this time around. I was so disappointed in the lack of scenes between these 2 last time around.

I want Ronan with Heather. I am a huge Jennifer Landon fan from her ATWT days and Jeff Branson fan from his time at GL. I want to see these 2 Emmy winners on screen as a couple. I will in fact take Ronan with anyone but Chloe as I can’t stand that character and refuse to watch any Chloe scenes. Chloe should have been gone from this show by now as she is totally not needed.

Ian

i want to see Ronan Malloy with Chloe… Chloe understands Ronan so well.. there chemistry is off the charts & has been dropped TWICE for other parings. i want Chlonan ( Chloe & Ronan) to get a chance at Romance…. they have SO much potential… Ronan with phyllis was a DISASTER. it was so forced, a plot point, i called them phoney because they way they were kissing just seemed so AWKWARD. i love MS but her & JB don’t work. Heather/Ronan at least heather cared as for phyllis she didn’t at all. BUT i think heather character would make people think Ronan is BORING…. i don’t see this new heather & Ronan having chemistry. i just want Chloe & ronan to be EXPLORED more then ALOT of fans will be happy.

ian

Chloe/Ronan have so much potential that NEEDS to be explored. i want a chlonan ROMANCE.

I WANT RONAN ND CHLOE BACK TOGETHER ON Y &R THEY’RE THE BEST COUPLE EVER 🙂 ♥♥♥♥♥

Katie

Ronan & Chloe have a lot of chemistry,; they’re super cute together & they just have those sparks & amazement, a couple should have. I ship Chlonan 100%, because every other relationship Ronan has been with, was just a hook-up.. a fling that could never turn into anything 🙂 And as for Chloe’s relationships, they may have been steamy, dirty & cute. But Chlonan tops it all. 🙂

I think maybe Avery would be a good choice for Ronan. He needs someone intelligent. Chloe is a little child that should have gone home years ago. She has no chemistry with anyone on the show and her character is a total bore. Ronan, on the other hand is very interesting to watch in any storyline. There was alot more chemistry between him and Phyllis than there will ever be with Phyllis and Nick.

Eileen Hargis

I dont want to see Ronan with Chloe, there is zero chemistry just as there is zero with any other man on the show. Her chsracter needs to go, period.

Camilla

I am soooo happy that Ronan and Nina will finally get a storyline together. That’s Ronan’s main purpose and I LOVE what Jeff said about Chlonan. He knows this pairing so well. He sees them the way we shippers see them and I’m so grateful to him for that.

The fact that he knows that while Ronan IS good for Heather (and was for Phyllis), Chloe is good for RONAN.

Courtney

Would really love to see Ronan/Chloe revisited again. They were never really given a real chance. Also very happy that we will get some Ronan/Nina stuff.

Sarah

I want to see RONAN AND CHLOE together!! as far as i’m concerned they bring out the absolute BEST in each other. They understand each other like no one else can. Chloe knows EXACTLY what makes ronan ‘tick’ and he responds in a very positive way to it. Y&R is REALLY missing out if they DON’T pair them because Jeff Branson and Elizabeth Hendrickson have Chemistry that is OFF THE CHARTS!! Absolute SOAP GOLD!! And the Y&R Writers would be fools to waste it!
I can NOT wait for more Ronan/Nina scenes! Tricia Cast and Jeff Branson are FANTASTIC in each and EVERY scene they have had together. I agree with what he said that they have just ‘scratched the surface’ where their relationship is concerned and i can NOT wait to see how this develops 🙂

Michael

For all of you folks out there, no matter how much we want to see Ronan and Nina explore their Mother/Son relationship or having Ronan paired with Phyllis, Heather or Chloe, we all known darn well that Maria “Hackarena” Bell will screw up the writing for the character of Ronan and make him completely unrecognizable and make you scratch your heads wondering why he’s doing stuff we know darn well he would never do. Unless and until Maria Arena Bell, Scott Hamner and Hogan Sheffer are booted from their positions at Y&R, this show will continue to sink, sink, sink ever so slowly into the grave that Maria has dug for the show and CBS and Sony will have no choice but to cancel this drivel of a show.

Just saying it like it is. Don’t like it? Not my problem.

Sarah
Sarah

I want RONAN AND CHLOE together!! Jeff and Liz ‘s Chemistry is OFF THE CHARTS!! Absolute SOAP GOLD!! and The Y&R writers would be FOOLS to let it go to waste!! They are AMAZING! Also i can NOT wait to see more Ronan/Nina scenes!! Tricia Cast and Jeff Branson have been PHENOMENAL in each and EVERY scene they have shared together!! Love how he said they have just ‘scratched the surface’ where their relationship is concerned!! I totally agree!! I cant wait to see how it develops!

I think Ronan and Victor would make a GREAT pairing!

They both, you know, drip with …. charm…..well, they’re both real drips.

Mo

He’s been a bore when he’s been on before. Maybe it was the storyline. I don’t know. Frankly, they need to weed out the actors. I guess maybe they’re doing that a little, but I don’t really see the need for him to return.

EventsDiva
EventsDiva

I would love to see him explore his and Nina’s relationship. There is so much that could go one there. I would like to see him with Phyllis and she could be mistaken and be carrying HIS baby and not Nick’s!

Judy
Judy

I’m glad Jeff also wants more story with Nina. That has been a big miss and there is so much opportunity there for great story!

As far as romantically, a lot depends on how long he is staying. Is it just long enough for a fling or is he sticking around long term for a relationship. Since we haven’t seen him yet in scenes with Jennifer Landon there is no way to know if they have chemistry but I am anxious to see that. I could see that being short term. I only see him with Chloe if he is sticking around a long time which I highly doubt. Big no to Phyllis.

Mary
Mary

I’m so glad that Jeff Branson is returning to Y&R! I look forward to Ronan and Nina working on their family dynamics…..Tricia Cast is so moving as a mother trying to connect with her son. As far as a romantic storyline for Ronan, I’m waiting to see how Jeff and Jennifer Landon interact and what she brings to the table as Heather.

Iakovos
Iakovos

Some good news out of Y&R. LOVE the idea of exploring Nina and Ronan, the son she lost. Tricia Cast is an excellent actress and is so underused. And a positive parent-child relationship is welcome among the dysfunction that is Newman. I pray no one turns it around later that Ronan is not Nina’s son after all.

And I think a Ronan/Heather coupling is the promise of a supercouple, especially with Jennifer Landon on board. These two could enjoy some realy light — hear me? light — romance and adventures. Heck, they could be the heirs to ATWT”s Tom and Margo. What an awesome relationship that was to follow for many years.

Chris
Chris

Glad he is coming back,and I hope for more then a few months. Really love JB and the way he portrays Ronan. Glad he wants to have Ronan and Nina to have a connection,he said in his twits that he was sad because he and Tricia didn’t have more scenes together. I really like him with Chloe ,they didn’t really get a chance to explore that couple. I think Heathe rand he well be friends,but I hope they don’t go down that road again,no matter who plays the part,Heather is not a godd match with ronan. Hopefully Maria and company won’t screw this up again. Glad there well be no hook up with Granny Red. Can’t stand her. Nothing but sex ,he and Chloe had a deep connection.

Christine
Christine

What’s all this meet him half way business?

As long as Ronan gets to mix it up with Nina A LOT this time, than I do not care who he gets into bed with.

SZima
SZima

Yeah…I don’t get the “half way” either. Does that mean Nina and Ronan share 4 scenes instead of 2? If they are really going to explore that relationship, it will take lots of time, and I don’t see MAB giving time to that story. She can make all the promises she wants, but far as I can tell, she never delivers on said promises.

As far as a relationship, I’d be interested in seeing him with nuHeather to see how their chemistry is. I did like Ronan and Chloe, but she’s been bounced around with too many men lately and she needs to settle down for a while…even though she’s boring as hell with Kevin.

Char

Chloe and Ronan, dangit!! I’ve waited forever for them to do right by that pairing.

I REALLY HOPE they give Chloe and Ronan the shot they deserve. It’s been two years ina row where they’ve hooked up and it just ended out of no where. They were so good together, especially around the time Delia got sick. It frustrates me to no end that we got all that build up regarding their relationship and it was completely dropped. Chloe is one of my favorite character and she has been completely dulled down with her relationship with Kevin. They are better off as Best Friends. Chloe deserves that “heat of passion” relationship she had with Ronan. Please, for the love of God!

Dyllan
Dyllan

Ronan only really had chemistry with Chloe,IMO. Sorry but I’m ready for Heather to go. They either need to bring Vail Bloom back or just drop the character. And I HATE Jennifer Landon. She took over ATWT.

Sheryl
Sheryl

I’m really glad that Ronan is back and I think Heather and him would be good together. I think Ronan needs to have a relationship with his mother. I thinks Chloe belongs with Kevin and she could just be a good friend to him.

Patrick

We need to see the reveal.. Ronin’s steel wall… hiding his vulnerabilities… seeing him connecting, with his mother, Nina… would be good story. alas, just having more family and younger actors nesting in the Chancellor Estate.

I admit.. the Steam oozing outa my TV.. with Ronin and Michelle Stafford.. was intoxicating…

I hope Ms. Landon… bumps it up and makes her mark… again… the’s a two time emmy winner.

Patrick
Patrick

I was so dissappointed that the 1st Heather… ala the triumphant Eden Riegel couldn’t ooze it up.. sensual her charms with either Ronin or phillip 3rd. So, from the outset… i hope Jennifer Landon.. rises to the occasion. she is a good actress. Eden was good with phillip… but, by then… he was let go.. and they stopped writing for Eden… or never really did.

Patrick
Patrick

having phyllis with ronin is sex.. they’re both on equal footing… so… it’s no holds barred. I like Nick with Avery.

Ronin is good with Chloe… but, i thought that was too quick… as chloe was so good with Phillip… so, it could work with them being friends and livening up the chancellor Estate.

how’s Nikki doing? lviing it up with the bottle? searing her torch for old and crusty victor… yet again?

Tom
Tom

Chloe and Ronan were hot, hot, hot–that should be explored further, because they have supercouple potential. Chloe and Kevin are snoozeville.

Mindy
Mindy

I think Ronan with Phyllis as close friend or possible lover. She needs someone to support her when her world come crashing down due to the past. I think Ronan should be there for her, because Nick is going to be self righteous about the whole thing. I want her to have some unconditional love. Like what Chelsea did for Adam. Now Sharon finally realizes what she is missing. I think the same should be true for Nick.

Raine
Raine

Ronan & Chloe were the best couple that never happened. Hopefully this time the writers will get it right and put these two together where they belong. And YES to finally delving into his relationship with Nina. This should have been his main storyline last time, instead of wasting him in that dumb sex storyline with Phyliss.

Patrick
Patrick

I agree… help me out here… why the fixation… all the time… victor and jack? heck victor and his brood… same old, same old. Jack is once again.. on his own… with Ashley and Traci gone… THIS IS THE TRUE CRIME COMMITTED.

By bringing back Ronin… it gives Y&R – Katherine the Great… scheming nymph Jill… busy body Esther – wanna belong chloe, understated Ms. America Nina (i must be better then cricket)… The Chancellors to regain their 1st place… in geneo city.

Patrick
Patrick

OK… call me daring… sick & twisted later… you have these (5) long “suffering” chancellor Women… Ronin… oozes charm and masculinity… help out, Phillip 3rd.

Patrick
Patrick

Oh! I ruined the punch line…. Phillip 4th… Chance, help out.

It is tricky to say who I feel Ronan should be paired with this time. I know I’m a Chlonan shipper, but if he isn’t staying around long enough for the writers to do them properly (if that is even possible for those idiots) than I think I would like to see them as very good friends with major unresolved feelings. I just think if they push Chloe and Ronan at this time without a commitment from Jeff, it won’t go well. Chloe is still woefully married, so precious time would be wasted on Chloe and Kevin break up drama and I’m not here for that.

Until Ronan is on long term, I hope they don’t waste Chlonan on a short term stay. So go ahead and put him with NUnuHeather this time, while keeping Chloe and Ronan’s interactions on point. And for the love of GOD, don’t begin Chlonan only to do a 180 and flip to Phyliss and Ronan out of freaking nowhere again. That was just downright rude.

Patrick
Patrick

Well said… “Chloe is still woefully married…”

yeah i know… Phyllis has been open and busy so much…

let’s anticipate some sizzle.

Patrick

Oops! Sorry…. did l leave out Sharon? Ms. Serta?

Let’s see, hmm, how about pairing Ronin with Adam because he’s about the only person that guy has chemistry with. Chloe, Heather, Sharon, Phyliis and Daisy are the worst characters on tv. What a waste of space. Come on Y&R give us something to look forward to, not dread what’s coming next, especially an old a$$ Victor & Sharon romance!!! Gross, Gross & Gross!!

SS82
SS82

If they want to explore Ronan/Nina, there’s no way that he should be with Phyllis because Phyllis and Nina are like in the same age bracket! I think Ronan was whored out to Phyllis and it would be so off for Ronan and Nina to talk abt his romance with Phyllis! As much as I wanted Chloe for Ronan, Chloe is unfortunately stuck with Kevin so sorry Chlonan! You’ve been waiting so long but unless something shifts there won’t be Chlonan anytime soon either! So maybe they’re gonna stuck Ronan with Heather again! I don’t even know why these writers bother since at the end of the day you won’t care either way as they only write for their faves! Why bother?!!!

I really would like to see Chloe and Ronan together. I think there is alot to explore there. I also can’t wait for more Ronan and Nina scenes together!!!!!!

Chris
Chris

I’m thinking maybe the meaning of MAB meeting half way was for Jeff to make more of a commitment to Y&R,it’s very difficult for writers to write for someone that is not willing to make a commitment,so maybe she told him,he’s either staying or not. Love for him to Stay love his character and him. Hope they actually do show the scenes with Ronan and Nina getting closer. I remember EH saying quite some time ago that it would be hard for her to have Chloe in a relationship with Ronan and then have him leave every 3 or 6 months. Just saying. Please stay Jeff.

The character of Ronan is coming back to arrest MAB & crew for 1st Degree pre-mediated murder of Y&R!!!!!!

Chris

Hope both Jeff and fans won’t get a big big letdown on MAB and the writers part. Stop shoving Heather down our throats,did not work before,won’t work now. maybe they can just be friends.give heather to chance when and if he returns. they still have some unresolved issues.

I wish a true mother – son relationship betwen Ronan and Nina and I want Chloe and Ronan together but this time it has to last, please .

Chris

It’s looking like we Chlonan well never get our Chlonan hookup,with the new regim coming on. Hope that they at least give EH and JB some scenes together and hope they ask Jeff what he wants to see with the relationship woes of Ronan and his Mom,they have so much they could be doing with his character . MAB completely ruined Ronan when they put him with Phyliss,it was so ,so very froced, and didn’t have any thing to do with either character,why did she think thye had all this chemistry ,oh I know it must have been all the soft porn sex they had,that had absolutely nothing to do with feelings,Like I said He was ruined,now all he is doing since his return is exactly what he didn’t want. MAB obvouisly had no respect for Jeff at all,why ask him what he wanted and say she would meet him half way then turn around and screw Jeff over,betting she knew she was going to be canned that’s why she made the deal with Jeff. Too bad cause Jeff and Tricia would have bought thoset scenes. JMO.

Chris
Chris

So Jeff has been back for awhile,when do we get to see more interaction with Ronan and Nina.They have great Mom and son chemistry. I can see we well never get a hookup with Ronan and Chloe,boo hoo. Chloe is so damn boring with Kevin. And why is it that we have to have Ronan become a completely different man now,he’s being made into a dirty cop,why the heck did Maria Bell ask Jeff to come back and now has ruined his character. I hope that we do not get another stupid hookup with Ronan and Phyliss,it was ridiculous enough the first time, Maria just threw them together ,they have absolutely no connection . And now Ronan is covering up evidence and lying because he claims he is in love woth Phyliss,GMAB this is ridiculous,he is also condoning a crime of H&R,doesn’t matter how long ago it happened ,he knows fully well she did it and other crimes. Please give us our old Ronan back,rewrite this mess of Maria Bell’s.

I WANNA SEE RONAN AND PHYLLIS TOGETHER..THEY’RE SO HOT MAN AND THE GET ONE ANOTHER….AND FOR ONCE I WUD LOVE TO SEE PHYLLIS WITH SOMEONE WHO IS ACTUALLY GONNA GET HER…NOT STUPID NICK

Matt Cohen Exits General Hospital

Dr. Griffin Munro, the former priest, is departing General Hospital as actor Matt Cohen made the decision to wrap his run on the ABC daytime drama series.

Cohen told TV Insider on his decision, “I did three years at the show. It was a great time and I had great fun playing the character, but I’m a guy who gets uncomfortable when he gets comfortable. I need to give Griffin a little rest right now. I talked to Frank (Valentini, executive producer). We’re leaving it very open-ended.”

The actor is now also focusing on directing and his first short film Mama Bear has been getting a solid response at film festivals

As to if he would return to his role as Griffin ever again, Matt teased: “Maybe I’ll pop into GH every once in a while? That’ll be up to Frank and the writers as to what we do.”

Matt came on to General Hospital back in 2016 and viewers learned that he was the son of Duke Lavery (Ian Buchanan), and was put in the orbit and became dear friend of Anna Devane (Finola Hughes), Duke’s true love.  Later, Griffin became romantically involved with Ava Jerome (Maura West) and then her daughter, Kiki (Hayley Erin).

Look for Cohen to exit this Friday on the March 22nd episode of GH.

So, sad to know Matt is leaving GH? Share your thoughts via the comment section below
