Over the weekend, The Young and the Restless Sharon Case reached her 25-year milestone in Genoa City! For Case, who was the third actress to take on the role of Sharon Collins, and once believed she would only last six months on the top-rated CBS Daytime drama, has become an integral part throughout the years to the drama and the romance that happens on the canvas on Y&R.

To mark the occasion, Case sat-down with Michael Fairman on the set of Crimson Lights at CBS Television City where Y&R is taped; to take a stroll down memory lane, and to share her thoughts with her legions of fans on the life and times of Sharon Collins Newman.

From her character’s wrong-side-of-the-tracks beginning, to meeting Nick Newman, to many of the memorable storylines and moments that were among her very favorites including: when Nikki, Phyllis, Sharon and Victoria buried J.T., and of course, to her leading men through the years, Sharon reveals some backstage and on-camera Intel.   As viewers know, Sharon Newman had also had her share of catfights through the years in longstanding conflicts with both Phyllis (Michelle Stafford) and of course, Nikki (Melody Thomas Scott), and Sharon discusses those moments too.

Sharon and Michael also relive when Cassie’s death, was first aired on the show, and the impact that story has had for decades on everyone who worked on and has watched Y&R over the years.  In addition, Sharon discusses how she felt the night she won the Daytime Emmy as Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series back in 1999.

At the end of the interview Sharon relates this message to the fans of Y&R: “I have always felt like these 25 years wasn’t just working here and playing Sharon … or working here with all the wonderful people … it’s just as much about going through it with all of you, especially because of social media, but even when we didn’t have it, we always knew that you were there and we were partners with you … because it really is sort of a partnership.  I really have felt like we have been in this together the whole time.  We don’t have a studio audience, but we know you’re there, and we love hearing from you.  It really was just as much about you – this journey I have gone on, than it was anything else, so ‘thank you’ for being there and watching the show, and being faithful to the show, and thanks for going on the ride with me.”

Love my girl she is a trooper she has had some crazy storylines but still hung in there and played it because she is a professional and never took it as seriously as some of us did ! I always wanted them to do a Thelma & Louise storyline with her and MTS because they work together so well and the storyline years ago with them in the sewer looking for a dead body with the rats was such a hoot ! Congrats on a great roller coaster ride 25 years!

Violet I am a romantic I want to feel somebodys love that’s what soaps use to be about undying love for each other! I feel the love between Adam and Sharon I use to feel it between her and Nick then by who ‘s choice they made Nick a angry man who can love that? So yes I am for Sharon and Adam first of all they accept each other for who they are! MG and SC have the chemistry she had with Muhney ! I pray JG writes them together

Kay I guess we will have to wait and see. I did love Sharon with Michael Muhney, but right now I can’t see past this Adam’s hatefulness.I know it comes from terrible hurt, but Victor was right when he told him that he didn’t just desert him or ignore him as a kid. We all know that Hope kept them apart and when he came back, when played by Justin Hartley, the Newmans did not welcome him with open arms. The age difference between Adam and Sharon is considerable but I can accept it. I’ve been so afraid that Phyllis… Read more »

Hi Kay
How about when Adam opened the door TODAY? The little fool Sharon actually offering herself, if he changes his ways. Recalling his childhood times with Victor was heartbreaking, and I remember those times as well.Hope did what she thought was best for her son, but now it’s tearing him apart.Talk about a love-hate relationship. He’s got that going on big time.Gosh, I can’t wait to see how this will all end.

Case really is great. Everything she says in this interview is positive — the plots, her co-stars, Sharon’s many love interests. IMO, the revolving door of writers has given her a few inferior plots and scenes (I remember cringing at the “hayloft fight” between Sharon and Nikki, a clip of which is included the interview). Case, however, makes no reference to some of the “dogs” they have handed her and seems genuinely appreciative of the work. Watching this interview clearly reveals why the show has kept her on the air for the 25 years. On a side note, Case doesn’t… Read more »

Sharon expressions were so funny when she was involved in burying JT body and all the episodes involving the cover up. She was especially funny when she had to deal with Phyllis.
