Joshua Morrow, Sharon Case & Camryn Grimes Interview – Remembering Cassie’s Death – The Young and the Restless

The Young and the Restless stars: Joshua Morrow (Nick), Sharon Case (Sharon) and Camryn Grimes (Ex-Cassie, now Mariah) chat with Michael Fairman in this exclusive conversation for The Michael Fairman Channel about the classic episode of Cassie’s Death from back in 2005.

The trio were heralded for their gut-wrenching performances, and in late July, CBS re-aired that episode in an encore presentation of one of the most emotional moments in soap history.  Here the actors shared their remembrances of taping those scenes, working together for many years and not only the tears, but the laughter they have shared throughout their time on the iconic soap opera.

In addition, since Y&R is now in production amid the coronavirus pandemic,  Joshua, Sharon and Camyrn talked about how it felt to finally be back at the studio taping new episodes, and much more.

Just loved this interview. That scene was one of the worst and saddest things I’d ever watched. I could only watch it once, though it’s been shown a number of times in flashbacks. Of course I blamed Daniel for the accident and Cassie’s death. I think I like Camryn as herself rather than Mariah who can get on my nerves sometimes, but like her truthfulness and relations with her mom and Nick and especially her role as big sister to Faith.

I just watched this interview kudos wonderful. I’m in love with Shick anyway I cried like a baby because as a fan and watching her grow up you lost a family member. Nick needs for Christmas to adopt Mariah and make her a Newman.

Tonya Lee Williams Says She Won’t Ever Be Coming Back to The Young and the Restless

It’s a different time in her life and she is in a different place, but Tonya Lee Williams (ex-Olivia Barber) addressed being asked back to reprise her signature soap opera role on CBS’ The Young and the Restless.

Tonya told Soaps In Depth the last time the soap reached out to her to reprise Olivia was for its 50th anniversary, “It it would have been lovely to do but I could not imagine doing the role. It takes a lot for me as an actor. You don’t just turn up and start reading a script. I don’t know how to explain it … I trained as an actor. I go through a lot of process into who that character is. And that character was someone from 20 years ago.”

Williams’ Y&R run Williams began back in 1990 and went through 2005. She later returned in 2007 making some appearances in the several years that followed. However, the last time anyone had an Olivia sighting was back in February of 2012 for Cane and Lily’s wedding.

She qualified that she left the show on “great terms,” adding, “I absolutely love the show. It has nothing to do with the show. But I try to explain it like this: Have you ever dated someone for a long time and you don’t want to date them anymore? And you have broken up with them and like, 10, 15 years have passed and people are saying, ‘Would you go back with that guy?’ I’m like, ‘No.’ Because you’re a different person now.”

Currently, Williams is the executive and artistic director for the Reelworld Film Festival. An organization she founded in 2001. Held in Toronto, the film festival features talent from ethnically diverse communities.

So, would you have liked to have seen the character of Olivia show back on Y&R? Perhaps, helping a patient in need since she is a doctor or speaking with/being involved with the Winters family in some capacity? Comment below.

On Wednesday’s May 22nd episode of The Young and the Restless, Cole (J. Eddie Peck) is reeling from finding a secret passage way to the basement where Victor (Eric Braeden) is holding a very much alive, Jordan (Colleen Zenk).

Behind the bars that hold her captive, she pleads with him to get her out of there. Jordan’s convinced Cole will help her because her sister, Eve, was his mother.

Cole pushed back,“Do you think that I would actually believe you after everything you’ve done?!” Jordan tells him to please call the police on Victor because being in a real jail would be better for her than this. She says, “I can’t take this anymore.” Jordan panics when Cole leaves her there.

Later, a stunned Cole is trying to decide what to do. He has lunch with Victoria (Amelia Heinle) and Claire (Hayley Erin). Next, C9le excuses himself and makes a phone call to Michael and says, “How soon can you meet me?”
