SHARON CASE:
Many years of unforgettable storylines!

TRACEY E. BREGMAN:
It’s a great testament to the show, cast, crew, staff and writers on its longevity

DON DIAMONT:
Setting the standard, and maintaining a long term level of excellence.

TV SOAP:
How long have you been on “Y&R”? Does it seem longer, as long, or shorter than that?

JOSHUA MORROW:
I have been on the show 14 years.  It was a dream come true for me as a job, and I am just happy to be a part of it.

JUDITH CHAPMAN:
I am going into my fourth year. Time has stood still in soapland.

BRYTON MCCLURE:
It’s my fourth year. It does feel like that long, especially when I look at back at all the stories I have had.

JERRY DOUGLASS:
When John died, I never really left because the ghost was on. The show wanted the moral authority even in a post- death fashion. I have been here consistently about 26 years,

DANIEL GODDARD:
I have been here about 15 months now. It has gone by very fast.

SHARON CASE:
I have been on “Y&R” for 14 years; and its feels like half that much.

TRACEY E. BREGMAN:
I have been on the show for 25 years. I can’t believe how long it has been and how fast it has flown by.

DON DIAMONT:
I have been on “Y&R” for 23 years, left for 2, and in many ways it has flown by in everything that has transpired through that time

TV SOAP:
Has there been a special bonding moment with a cast member, crew member or production staff that you can share with us?

JOSHUA MORROW:
Its not specific moments, it’s that I have two incredible mentors, Peter Bergman (Jack) and Eric Braeden (Victor).   I learned professionalism from Peter and watching how Eric handles every situation.  Two great people!

JUDITH CHAPMAN:
One of my favorite moments was my very first scene. There was a bit of tension on set and Eric Braeden was there with files in his face. I had not met him before and I just walked on the set. And I went, “Oh my heavens, my very first scenes on “Y&R” are with thee Eric Braeden. I need a drum roll please.”  The ice was broken, and I did our scene in three takes, and Eric shakes my hand and goes, “You are very good. Miss Chapman needs a drum roll please!” Everyone cracked up.  I think I had arrived.

BRYTON MCCLURE:
One of the strongest bonds was with Victoria Rowell (Ex-Drucilla). When I first came on the show I was the foster child and it came from her true life story. To portray her story right in front of her, that is a very strong thing.
JERRY DOUGLASS:
When Beth Maitland (Ex- Tracy) and Eileen Davidson (Ex-Ashley) joined the show, Terry Lester (Ex-Jack) said to me, “Let’s keep ourselves close off the show because we are a fortunate to build a family like this on-screen. “  We became more than that.

DANIELGODDARD:
Everyday. Everyday you come to the set and you see everybody and it’s like family. The crew is so respectful of your storylines.

SHARON CASE:
Working with Melody Thomas Scott (Nikki) during the storyline when she and I were stuck in the sewer with rats.

TRACEY E. BREGMAN:
It has been great working with wonderful people from everyone at “Y&R” to the Baldwin/Fisher clan as well as Michelle Stafford (Phyllis).

DON DIAMONT:
I lost my father and brother during the same year since I have been on “Y&R”; as a whole, the show has always been very supportive and it meant a lot to me.

TV SOAP:
When you think of “Y&R 35” what does that mean to you?

JOSHUA MORROW:
It means success, shows don’t usually last this long.  We have been doing it for 35 years and kicking-ass for this long and its good.

JUDITH CHAPMAN:
Longevity. For me to be with the number one show in daytime, not only does it show “Y&R” has longevity but I do too! (She laughs)

BRYTON MCCLURE:
Legendary! It’s a legendary show.  It’s been the number one show consecutively in the US for 18 years.

DANIEL GODDARD:
Honored.  I am so honored to think that I could be part of it.  To Jerry, Jeanne, Jess, Peter, Eric, and Joshua: I hope that I can do for the show what they have done, and have “Y&R” run for another 35 years.

B&B’s Kimberlin Brown and Tanner Novlan Talk on Sheila’s Motherly Love for Finn and the Next Move Against Steffy & the Forresters

The Bold and the Beautiful’s mother/son duo of Kimberlin Brown (Sheila Carter) and Tanner Novlan (Finn) chatted with Michael Fairman during a virtual interview for the Michael Fairman Channel; about the return of soap super-villain Sheila to the CBS daytime drama series, and its impact on newlyweds Steffy (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) and Finn, and their newborn son, Hayes.

When daytime fans learned that Brown was returning to B&B, they were very excited to see back on-screen as one of the greats, who’s character has caused so much trouble for the residents in both Genoa City 0n The Young and the Restless and in Los Angeles on The Bold and the Beautiful with her various crimes, deceptions, and plots over the years.

However, this time, viewers learned that Sheila is the biological mother of good doctor, Finn and her entrance into the story (at the wedding reception for Finn and Steffy) threw disruption into the lives of the Forresters and for her the son she never-got-to-know that she gave up at birth.

During this entertaining and candid conversation, Kimberlin and Tanner reveal many behind-the-scenes tidbits including: what went down during the  taping of the scenes where Finn learns Sheila is his mother as she steps out of the shadows, the confrontation at the wedding when the Forresters learned this shocking bit of intel, how Sheila plans to continue to manipulate and weave her way into her grandson and son’s life, and how she sees her vendetta with Steffy as an off-shoot of her vendetta with her grandmother, the late Stephanie Forrester (Susan Flannery).

In addition, Tanner weighs-in on Finn’s apparent ignorance of Paris’ (Diamond White) growing attraction to him, how that might trigger a Sheila/Paris partnership, or the possibility that Sheila does the unthinkable and somehow gets Steffy hooked back on opioids, or makes it looks like she has. There were many theories bantered about, and the actors share their speculative thoughts.
