Well, we all knew this day was coming! But according to Soap Opera Digest today, Michael Graziadei finished his run as Daniel Romalotti on November 3oth when he taped his final scenes at The Young and the Restless!

The cast gathered for a good-bye party on set, with Michelle Stafford (Phyllis), Joshua Morrow (Nick) and Peter Bergman (Jack) offering parting words. “Another scene with my Grazzzzz # reallycrying,” tweeted Stafford that day. Michael first joined the cast in 2004.

As many are aware, Graziadei has been eager to continue to spread his wings and add to his burgeoning resume doing more roles in primetime television and motion pictures! This departure will provide him with the opportunity to do so. We wish Michael all the best in his new endeavors!

What was your favorite moment of Graziadei’s as Daniel?  Are you sad about his departure from Genoa City?  Let us know!

Graz is too good for soaps. He needs to keep climbing. The show misued him from the get go, never gave him anything good to show his talents. Good for him! U go, Graz, I will still be behind you, Eileen, Tom P’s friend and urs.

Michael hasn’t had much to do on the show lately anyway – the whole Daisy thing made me sick and I never got into Daniel and Heather as a couple….personally I think the best of his work was in his relationship with Phyllis (Michelle Stafford).

Graz was one of the best young actors ever in Y&R. it’s a pity they let him go because he was so talented but for his carrier i think it was a wise mood. We sure are gonna see more of Graz.

I must have missed something. I never really thought he was that great, but good luck to him. Maybe he’ll do better with good writers/directors.

Never did like his character.

Michael is a terrific actor. If Daniel had a meaningful story or not, he was a welcome face on screen. Good luck to Michael.

As per your question- my favorite story line involving Daniel was the whole aftermath after Cassie death. I thought the character best romance was with Lily before Cane came onto the scene. As for MG, well he isn’t the first soap actor nor the last who believes they can make it in the “big leagues.” And truth was the show was not using his talents fully, so sometimes they need to walk away- but Daniel is an important character, I suspect the show will eventually recast or MG will come back one day, if prime time or movies don’t pan… Read more »

Mary SF hit the nail on the head! The aftermath of Cassie’s death was perhaps Michael Graz’s best storyline in his entire 8 year run on Y&R.

I have really enjoyed this actor for the last several years. He was a good son to Phyl. I wish him great success.

I wish Michael Graziadei the best of luck. He was great on Y&R. I only wish he had gotten a haircut in his last year. Part of the reason I liked the old opening to Y&R so much was his scene with the short hair. Oh well. It’s HIS hair. Ha! Ha! My favorite things to do with Daniel on Y&R had to do with his relationships with Phyllis, Lily, Kevin, Amber, Lucy (especially when he gave her to Billy & Victoria and then when he realized he loved her), and I was starting to like Jennifer Landon as Heather.… Read more »

MG… made Phyllis “normal”… a real chemistry bloomed with his onscreen mother…. props to that….

last i saw him…. he was featured in a 3-4 episode turn as Jessica Lange’s boy toy…. on American Horror Story.

This is in Michael’s best decision and the character’s; this time away will give both time to be given a much needed growth. Michael is a far talented actor, and the character of Daniel is much under-used. I hope he comes back down the line, with or without Michael!

his talent was truly wasted on y&r – i have seen him on prime time shows and he was awesome – i really wish him the very best & i believe with his talent he will go far in prime time & hopefully the big screen…………

I think the character was important to keep Phyllis grounded but who could blame him for jumping this ship??

I for one can’t blame him for jumping ship. Not since the aftermath of Cassie’s death, his marriage to Amber, the Daisy/Lucy/Billy/Victoria storyline’s has Michael Graz had any decent work. I think he wanted out so that he could pursue work outside of the daytime medium. He’s got a very good shot at being successful in prime-time and major motion pictures. His departure was not unexpected and was rumored to be happening before MAB was fired from Y&R as well as Billy Miller’s.

Too bad but not unexpected. I’m not sure if it was due to the writing, the actor, or the character but, in the scene’s with Phyllis, Graziadei’s Daniel was the only character who seemed to bring out the “real” Phyllis. Phyllis is a character most viewers love to hate and she does some really bad or dumb (take your pick) things. The one positive thing about Phyllis that I firmly believe is that she tries to be a good mother. (Not always doing the smartest thing but her basic intentions are always based on her love for her children). You… Read more »

Sad news, but it doesn’t come as a complete shock. Michael is an extremely talented actor who made the character of Daniel his own as soon as he set foot on the show in 2004. He had a definite style and was often times very funny and equally intense. I enjoyed his scenes with Michelle so much. They had great chemistry. Wishing The Graz the best and hope to see him on the screen again!

Nancy Lee Grahn Kicks-Off Her 25th Year as General Hospital’s Alexis; Thanks Fans & Shares: “What a Ride”

She’s one of the best of the best!  And on Saturday, Nancy Lee Grahn acknowledged the start of her 25th year as Alexis Davis on ABC’s General Hospital. 

Nancy, who daytime fans first loved on One Life to Live and then Santa Barbara, came to Port Charles and quickly became one of its leading mainstays.

On Twitter, marking the occasion, Nancy thanked her fans with this: “Wow! I start my 25th year on  @generalhospital  today. What a ride. It’s been one of my greatest pleasures to be connected to & supported by such a beautiful, loving, loyal #gh audience. We are and have always been in this together. I hope you can feel my most sincere virtual hug.”

Currently in story, Alexis just lost the new love of her life Neil and on Friday’s episode of GH, Alexis was blamed for his death by Neil’s brother when she tried to attend his memorial service.  Later, she landed at the Floating Rib with Valentin – but when he got into it with Ned and stepped outside, Alexis ordered a drink.  Not a good sign for this recovering alcoholic, and all this came on the heels of Alexis learning she has osteoporosis.

Through the years, story after story, beat after beat, we are lucky to have Nancy on our screens with her consistently riveting and honest performances.

What has been your favorite Alexis storyline through the years?  And … make sure to wish Nancy a ‘happy 25th’ via the comment section below.

Y&R Alum Max Ehrich Says He Was Blindsided By Breakup with Demi Lovato & Found Out Via Tabloid

For the first time, since the apparent split of former The Young and the Restless star, Max Ehrich(Ex-Fenmore) and pop singer, Demi Lovato, one of them has made a public comment in an usual but effective way.

Ehrich took to his Instagram Story on his Instagram account and stated “Imagine finding out status of your relationship through a tabloid.” That was followed by, “While (you’re) in the middle of filming a biopic movie about a pastor in a Christian church whose intention of the film is to help people. God bless.”

In an Instagram post following the split, Max shared “Jesus loves you.” in a typewriter font with a white background on Instagram, captioning the post with a heart, prayer hands and dove emoji. The comments on it were turned off and that is when he shared the same message on his Instagram Story.

From these posts it would seem that Ehrich was unaware of the dissolution of his engagement to Lovato which happened while he has been away in Atlanta shooting the movie Southern Gospel.  Additionally from reports, it seems Lovato called off the relationship.

But, a source told PEOPLE, “Demi made Max aware that the relationship was over and it was going to come out in the press.”

Lovato also made a post on her Instagram Story not addressing the break-up directly in which she zoomed on what it said on her t-shirt “dogs over people.” In addition, her engagement ring was absent from her left ring finger in the very short clip that is no longer on her IG Story,

So, do you think Max was blindsided? Did he know? As usual with Hollywood break-ups, there are two sides to every story.  Comment below.
