Trevor St. John Talks On Becoming Y&R’s Tucker McCall

Photo: JPI

The Young and the Restless has scored a major get by nabbing Trevor St. John to join the cast of the top-rated soap opera, and just in time for the daytime drama’s 50th anniversary season.

If you caught today’s episode, it was revealed that St. John is indeed playing Tucker McCall, the son of the Grand Dame of Genoa City, Katherine Chancellor (the late Jeanne Cooper). The role of Tucker was last played by Days of our Lives’ Stephen Nichols (Steve ‘Patch’ Johnson) from 2010-2013.  Now with Tucker back in town look for fireworks, relationships renewed, new conspirators, and some major plot twists and shifty business maneuvers including his mysterious relationship with Diane Jenkins (Susan Walters). Let’s not forget, Tucker has a past with Ashley Abbott (Eileen Davidson), as well.

Daytime audiences know it has been a decade since Trevor appeared on the network soaps following his memorable performances and star-turn as Todd Manning/Victor Lord Jr. on One Life to Live.  St. John actually debuted in Llanview back in 2003 as “Walker Laurence”, and closed out the ABC version of One Life appearing in the final scene in 2012; when it was revealed that Victor Lord Jr. was very much alive and was being held captive by Allison Perkins.

Later in 2013, Trevor appeared for a short-run on Prospect Park’s reboot of the series.  Since that time, the talented actors has appeared in numerous films and TV series including the CW’s Roswell, New Mexico and Containment.   

Michael Fairman TV connected with St. John to get his thoughts on: his new digs in Genoa City, what he thinks of his new role and co-stars thus far, and much more.  Here’s what TSJ had to say below.

It has now been officially confirmed and revealed on Monday’s airshow, that you are indeed playing Tucker McCall. When Y&R approached you about the role, what did they tell you about the character? Did you do any Google, or You Tube research to connect the dots to any of his past relationships?

TREVOR: The only info they gave me was a broad overview of the relationships Tucker has with the other characters and their history. I didn’t do any research on my own. I’m learning on the job!

How do you view Tucker at this juncture, and from what you’ve been given to play so far in the scripts? 

TREVOR: You know, it’s strange, I prefer to never draw any conclusion about a character – my view of him – because the second I do, I’ve limited him/myself, if that makes any sense. I never want to put any unnecessary limits on myself.

Photo: JPI

What has it been like for you working with the likes of: Eileen Davidson (Ashley), Susan Walters (Diane) and Bryton James (Devon? Had you crossed paths with any of them previously in your career?

TREVOR: I had not crossed paths with any of them prior to this point. However, I’m enjoying working with each one immensely. Not only are they open and talented actors, they’re good people.

Photo: JPI

Do you think Tucker will have a difficult time reconnecting with his son, Devon?

TREVOR: Since Tucker has been away from Genoa City, it’s safe to say he has a lot of ground to cover when it comes to re-establishing relationships, most importantly with his son, Devon.  We will also see Tucker form some new alliances as well.

How was it meeting and working with Y&R icon Eric Braeden (Victor) for the first time? 

TREVOR: Eric was great. He’s strikes me as a man who knows exactly who he is and has no qualms about it. That’s the kind of person I like to be around – totally genuine and authentically themselves. I hope we get to work together often.

Photo: JPI

You knew Y&R head writer and Co-EP Josh Griffith from previously working with him.  Did that factor in to your decision to take the part of Tucker and come to Y&R?

TREVOR: Yes, I remember liking Josh as a person and his writing, so that gave me confidence I’d be in good hands on Y&R.

Photos: CW

You have appeared in numerous primetime series including Roswell, New Mexico and Containment, plus motion picture roles in The Grief of Others, In the Family, and more.  Do you have a favorite part that you wish you could sink your teeth into again? 

TREVOR: I’d love to take another crack at Leo from CONTAINMENT. He was a deeply flawed, confused character, so wouldn’t have to act at all. I could just be myself!

B&B’s Tanner Novlan (Finn) killed your character Jesse Manes in Roswell, New Mexico. Since B&B is across the hall from Y&R, have you yet to run into your ‘killer”?

TREVOR: I have not run into Tanner. Except for that he murdered me, he seemed like a decent chap.

Photo: JPI

Did your good friend, Michael Easton (ex-OLTL, now GH) offer his thoughts on your return to daytime and Y&R? What does he think about your new role at the show?

TREVOR: Michael told me what he had heard about Y&R – that EPs Tony (Morina) and Josh had created a supportive, positive atmosphere and gathered a terrific cast, director roster, writing staff, and crew that fostered creativity. It turns out what he had heard was spot on. It’s a great group of people, top to bottom. I’m fortunate to be a part of it.

Do you and Michael watch each other’s work?

TREVOR: No, we don’t watch each other’s work. I don’t even watch my own work.

Photo: JPI

Finally, what could you preview that Y&R viewers should expect, or look forward to from Tucker in the weeks ahead?

TREVOR:  In general, I think you’d better strap in.

So, looking forward to seeing Trevor ‘s take on the role of Tucker McCall? What do you see Tucker becoming romantically involved with? Share your thoughts and first impressions of Trevor on Y&R in the comment section below.

Congratulations Y$R fans. You are getting a wonderful, powerhouse actor. I love Trevor St. John. He is absolutely terrific. I sincerely hope the powers that be use him wisely. Enjoy.

I agree. I hope he gives Victor a run for his millions. Victor did black mail Asland to signing papers as the man was having a heart attack. Do anybody remember Nikki’s profession when she first entered the show? Or the roll Jill played? Did anyone ever answer to murder that Victoria, Nikki, Phyllis and Sharon committed? Yet, they judges everyone else. Adam, Sally, and Diane came aboard as underdogs who did not stand a chance out the gate. Summer did try to seduce her mom’s boyfriend…Billy. They forgive Jack’s mom. This show is so twisted and not fair to… Read more »

Everyone thinks this guy is great. I don’t know his work or him, and my first reaction to him was eh! I remember Steven Nichols as Tucker and is quite a bit older, more in line to be Devon’s dad and “lover” to either Diane or Ashley.
Iam reading he and Sharon may hit it off, at least more in line with his age.

I totally agree, too young to be Devon’s dad.

Oh Violet, I admit that I didn’t expect to like Trevor SJ but…I am sold. I think he’s terrifically poised, relaxed, confident, and dare I say it — sexy. Though, you know me, his hair is a little short for his beautiful facial structure. The only drawback to him is the albatross known as Diane. Arrogant, scheming Diane is bad enough. Now, with Tucker, she’s whiny and frightened Diane. Enough of her!

Celia
Guest
Celia

LOL and HaHaHa, Soaphound—-I love Trevor, too. Diane—what can I say—-she has not drawn a lick of sympathy from me yet. I honestly do not remember the actress ever playing the role—-and I’ve been watching this soap the longest ( toddler). I’ve only known Maura West in the role. I think I had just graduated College when she joined Y&R—-not sure. But, that’s when I “fell” for Maura despite her bad-girl ways.

The character of Diane was created in the eighties MW would have only been 10 years old it was stupid and part of Marina Bells tenure of let’s destroy Y&R . Since 2006 they have proceeded to do that with me they accomplished that have at it ! Susan Walters took over the role way back when but Alex Donnelly created the character then Jack was played by Terry Lester.

Celia
Guest
Celia

K–what was stupid? Not clear. If I strike you as stupid?–not much I can do about that.
I was born in the 80’s—thus, I could not know the original “Diane”.
Susan Walters does not ring a bell for me. Obviously, she did not make an impact—I was in High School at the time and I did watch Y&R– I guess she was that mediocre, not to make an impression. My grandmother does remember her as Diane and also as Lorna, on LOVING–
I distinctly remember Maura West–I was much older and in College–she’s a Bostonian!! Right around my dorm.

Soaphound
Guest
Soaphound

Celia, it sounds like some folks don’t even know Maura West played Diane. Doing a little research before resorting to terms like ‘stupid’ would be nice. Looks like Diane causes trouble EVERYWHERE, even on this site (tee-hee). Remember when horndog Nick slept with Diane around the same time as Victor? He REALLY needs sex therapy! Off-topic, what’d you think of Kyle and Summer’s second wedding? You know they’re bereft of ideas when we’re forced to see a ceremony we didn’t care if we missed the first time! Granted, Kyle looked gorgeous but that’s nothing new.

Hello, my beautiful friend- Thanks for the back-up!! You are too funny—yeah!! Diane needs a kick in the arse. My Nanna actually loves Susan Walters, a name which never came up between us in the past. Trust me, she chews my ear off about all the characters —-her assertions definitely influence my opinion—-she’s that forceful. LOL. She loves talking about our soaps—she uses her own not-so-nice language for certain characters, but, as I said she loves Walters, and the only mean comment she made, so far, was about her legs. Double LOL. It’s nice to have money, yet I am… Read more »

Well, K—perhaps based on YOUR record you did not call me stupid. Your sentences are “run-on”—-no punctuation. I did say, “not clear”—-nonetheless, I do not take offense because I know who I am. Need not prove myself. However, I appreciate the explanation.

Trevor St. John is quite the talent. There’s no one quite like him in the industry. I hope Y&R uses him wisely. I’d like to see him in scenes with Adam as those two give similar vibes.

Celia
Guest

Absolutely, Jill. I only hope he doesn’t start too much trouble—-but, if he does, perhaps it’s only the mischievous kind. LOL.
Who knows why Tucker is back. Would he go against his own son and team up with Nate? Too far-fetched?

Soaphound
Guest
Soaphound

Celia, dear, what do you think of Trevor St. John so far? I think he’s hot…great body, smile, could use more hair. But he’s a really good actor and I only hope he can be rid of Drippy Diane pronto. I finally see some hope forming. Who knows, maybe he can put Victoria in her place (she’s so greedy and unscrupulous…the very things she accuses Adam of being). Tucker and Sharon? I don’t see it yet but who knows. I still like Sharon and Adam together but that seems unlikely. And that self-righteous Nick! Ignoring Adam’s heartfelt plea to let… Read more »

Oh, my Lord, Soaphound( Oops–I’ve just committed a mortal sin …(Exodus –can’t remember what verse). I took the Lord’s name in vain. Sorry. But, Trevor IS hot—a fave since OLTL. Tucker will make trouble, silently and snakily. He will work with Nate and shake the apple cart, as it were, by resolutely infiltrate the Newman realm and gain majority. You’re right about Victoria—what happened to her? I really liked her!!—apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. Just ask Newton.—what’s up with me and apples, today? LOL. I pay no attention to Nikki—she is a true representation of the nouveaux riches–tres… Read more »

Great actor but another great actor Stephan nichols couldn’t do this role justice the character is a bore and shrinking his age by almost 20 years is ridiculous. Another boring character is Devon who is supposed to be his son who will share scenes with him sounds like a hot mess to me the show really has been a hard watch and I’m not sure this is a step in the best direction stay tuned

JenW
Guest

I have never seen him before so will reserve judgement. People are complaining about him being 20 years younger than Tucker should be – but I guess we have to suspend belief. I did like the character when he was on previously – although I’ve forgotten what he did to make everyone in GC now hate him apparently.

Since there is this interesting connection to Diane, I can only hope this is the beginning of the end of her!

Marilyn
Guest

Bad casting choice, he looks younger than his son Devon. Too small and meek to be a powerful character. He may be a good actor but not impressed so far.

Y&R signed on a terrific actor! Trevor St. John was outstanding on OLTL. He is one of the best soap actors I’ve been privileged to watch over the years. He is on par with a younger Eric Braeden (I only say this because Eric isn’t on as much anymore with juicy storylines and I feel that they softened his character too much), Justin Hartley when he played Adam, etc. I don’t mind him being younger than what his character should be. After all, soaps are notorious for making kids turn into teens overnight to promote storylines. It’s not any less… Read more »

I love Trevor–no matter the role. Good guy, bad guy, in-between guy—it doesn’t matter which way the plot goes . Happy to see him —Better he, as Tucker, than Nate, who has the Dr Jeckel/Mr.Hyde syndrome..
Poor Elena is in a quandary. She does not want to betray either. What to do, what to do……
I think Elena will eventually fess up because she’s too honest and I bet she’s already getting guilt-pangs—-Drumming away in her pristine chest!!

And, absolutely double yes—Michelle is credible and natural !!

Celia
Guest
Celia

Hi, Teleia—Autocorrect is not so correct..LOL. Most times I skim over my comment—but, I’m always in a hurry; trying to get all my thoughts in —
Yes, we do seem to look for similar qualities in a character—I am not particularly fond of the prudish, “miss little goody two shoes” types—-I like to see vitality with a dash of risqué. And, both “Phyllis” and “Ava” fit the bill–I draw the line at evil; yet, such acting only boosts a particular actor’s/actress’ skill ( eg. Esme (GH)

Teleia McCabe
Guest
Teleia McCabe

I love good acting – & daytime actors as a whole are so well disciplined & some are as good as you’ll find anywhere. For me, Susan Flannery is the Queen of daytime actresses. I love Cynthia Ward is too. I prefer a character that changes (like Nelle on GH) as opposed to one who starts out rotten (like Esme). But I’ve also been a fan of TSJ & the interesting choices he makes.

He’s too young for Ashley and looks stupid mooning after her.

Soaphound

You know, Violet, I like Ashley in every story except romances. She always seems distant, atonal, and preoccupied. So, someone as interesting as Trevor SJ just doesn’t mesh with her. And since I never bought this “great love story” when it first aired, I’m surely not interested now. They’re not like Nikki/Victor or Sharon/Nick or even Billy and Victoria.

Y&R’s Michael Graziadei Talks Daniel’s Past and Present, Reuniting with His Co-Stars, and Life as Dad to Twins

Longtime viewers of CBS’ The Young and the Restless are excited that Michael Graziadei has returned to the top-rated daytime drama during its 50th anniversary season as Daniel Romalotti.

Graziadei made his on-screen re-emergence right around Thanksgiving, as in story, Daniel came home to surprise his mother, Phyllis (Michelle Stafford), but also for a business idea he wanted to present to good friend, Devon (Bryton James) and Daniel’s former girlfriend, Lily Winters (Christel Khalil).  Seems Daniel has a mega-universe gaming platform he’s created that he wants Chancellor-Winters to potentially be a part of.  But there must be more to the story than meets the eye, right? Will Daniel find himself drawn back to Lily, especially since her relationship with Billy (Jason Thompson) has hit a major rough spot/road block named Chelsea (Melissa Claire Egan)?

Courtesy/CBS

In a new virtual interview exclusively for You Tube’s Michael Fairman Channel, Graziadei sits-down to talk about coming home to Genoa City with a look at Daniel’s past, present and future.  Michael first appeared as Y&R’s Daniel from 2004-2013, made a guest stop back to the show in 2016, and now at the end of 2022, he is back full-time with the soap opera.

During the conversation, Graziadei shares what it’s been like working with beloved cast mates including: Michelle Stafford, Christel Khalil, Camryn Grimes (Mariah) and more.

Courtesy/CBS

Michael also shared his enthusiasm at getting a chance to reconnect not only with Michelle Stafford, but Daniel’s adoptive father, Michael Damian (Danny) as well, when they all appear in scenes together for the upcoming holiday episodes.

Courtesy/CBS

Just what have been Michael’s favorite Daniel storylines of all-time? Was it Daniel’s part in Cassie’s death (Camryn Grimes) and its aftermath? When they gave Daniel a porn addiction storyline? Graziadei weighs-in.

Courtesy/CBS

In addition, Michael reveals the wonders of being a new dad to twins boys in real-life, Oliver Bear and Arlo.  He opens up about how he and his lady love, Lauren found out they were having twins, the naming process they went through, and what life is like now at-home.

During Graziadei’s time away from Y&R, he appeared in numerous TV and film projects.  Most recently, Michael was seen in Netflix’s The Lincoln Lawyer, where he shares what it was like to take on a legal role for the first time in his career, plus what it was like to act and kiss Oscar-winner, Jessica Lange in American Horror Story (a role he played while still at Y&R during his first go-round).

Y&R’s Camryn Grimes and Fiancé Brock Powell Talk On Their Roles as Mrs. Claus and Santa in ‘Mickey Saves Christmas’

Two-time Daytime Emmy winner, Camryn Grimes (Mariah, The Young and the Restless) has been involved in a very special passion project in more ways than one!  Now, everyone will be able can see it, and hear it, when Grimes voices the role of Mrs. Claus opposite her real-life fiancé and voiceover star, Brock Powell as Santa in Mickey Saves Christmas.

The new stop-motion holiday special premieres Sunday, November 27th (7:00-7:30 p.m. EST) on ABC, Disney Channel, Disney Junior and Disney XD, and Monday, November 28 on Disney+ and Hulu.  It features Disney icons: Mickey, Minnie and the gang, who are sent to the North Pole on a quest to save Christmas and find the true meaning of the holiday.

Camryn and Brock Powell became engaged earlier this year on January 7th, which also happened to be Camryn’s 32nd birthday. How the two met all comes back to the world of voiceover and Disney, as you will learn.

Michael Fairman TV chatted with the real-life lovebirds to preview Mickey Saves Christmas, how they wound up voicing the important voices of Christmas, Santa and Mrs. Claus, and just what Brock thinks of Camryn’s Genoa City alter-ego Mariah being married to Tessa (Cait Fairbanks), and more.  Is Brock #TeamTeriah? Check out what they shared with us below.

Photo: Disney+

The two of you were actually introduced by Bill Farmer, the voice of Goofy! How did that happen?

BROCK:  So, Bill Farmer is my mentor, and through him, that was the first time I actually met Camryn.

CAMRYN: I knew Bill growing up, and in 2020 when I wanted to get into voiceovers, I reached out to him and that’s how this all started and I guess, the rest is history.

Now you are voicing Santa and Mrs. Claus in Mickey Save Christmas. How did it come about that you both landed parts on the project?

BROCK: I got to play the role of Santa in Mickey and Minnie Wish Upon a Christmas, which was the first time I got to voice Santa for Disney, and now I’m returning to the role this time. Camryn received the audition randomly for Ms. Claus on the day we were getting engaged, and it was perfect timing because I had to get her out of the house so I could set up the proposal here.  So, it really was a Christmas miracle because I was sweating!

CAMRYN:  We were cast separately. The production team had no idea that Brock and I were a couple. When I went in to record, they were like, “Here’s the voice of Santa for you to record to, and I was like, “Yeah, I know… that’s my fiancé!”  They were like, “What??” (Laughs)

Photo: Sarah Irene Decristoforo

Did the engagement go off without a hitch?

BROCK:  Yes, so after the audition process, Camryn returned home. I proposed, and there was a whole Disney/Pixar theme going on in the backyard. It was a really special day. To have her say, “Yes”, and also to have this crazy opportunity for her to audition for the role of Mrs. Claus happening at the same time … and then weeks later finding out she booked the role, it was all amazing.  We were now going to be working on this Christmas special together.  I think anytime you get to voice an iconic character, it’s special.  However, if you’d told me that I would get to return to the role I love, with the person I love playing opposite me … I think I’m done.  I just don’t know how you can ever top it!

Camryn, what did it mean to you to be in this film as Mrs. Claus, because fans saw this post of yours with a photo of you outside the Anaheim Convention Center where Disney’s D23 convention was happening.  It made everyone speculate  just what you were working on, which you shared was a lifelong dream.

CAMRYN:  Yes!  Y&R and CBS is my home, but I’ve always wanted to do something with Disney.  My family raised me on all things Disney and all things Christmas.  They were huge into the holiday, and so this kind of just checks every box.  It’s not only Disney, it’s Christmas, it’s stop-motion animation, and it’s Mrs. Claus.  I think my family was more excited for me to book this then anything I’ve ever done. I think there were tears! So sentimentally, this project really meant a lot to me.

Photo: BrockPowellIG

Camryn, did Brock coach you on doing voiceover work, or give you any tips?

CAMRYN:  I mean, I live with my voiceover coach. (Laughs) It’s amazing!

BROCK:  You know, I do coach for voiceovers and Camryn is my star pupil now.  She’s a talented actress, obviously. The biggest misconception is that, while it starts with the voice, Camryn, as well as most of the amazing voice actors I know, they have access to this childhood imagination which I think makes their performances possible. So, while you’re watching Mickey Saves Christmas, even though we recorded everything separately, what you’re looking for is that energy and every character connecting. You’re inventing the circumstances, you’re inventing your scene partner, where we have to close our eyes and embody a character we may, or may not, have a reference for. I think watching Camryn and hearing Camryn’s work on this, and a couple of other projects she’s worked on, I’m just so impressed at how coming from daytime television where there is a very stringent set routine and at the level that she excels at there, to then come into my world and then just kill it behind the microphone. She was able to let all of that go and have the bravery to try something new. I think a lot of people are going to love what Camryn has done here.  I’m most proud of her to be willing to look silly which is what is required in voiceover.

CAMRYN:  That’s true, and that’s probably the most fun thing about it.

Now, what can you tease us that happens in the story of Mickey Saves Christmas?

CAMRYN: It’s kind of built into the title a little bit, but I think what you’re going to get out of this is a deep sense of community and coming together to fix a problem and being able to lend a helping hand.  I feel, it’s just a really lovely film about chosen family.

BROCK:  It’s about family, it’s about friends, it’s about putting a lot of pressure on the holidays be perfect.  I think everyone involved in this special from the animators to the music team, everything in it helped make this a love letter to the holidays. The film really just talks about that Christmas is who you spend it with, and not necessarily how it turns out. I think it’s a really positive reminder that the most important part about Christmas is being with the ones we love. These are characters that Camryn and I love, not just the ones we voiced. To be with these actors, to be with these characters. it is just is going to be so special with everyone watching on November 27. It’s going to be the first tine for all us watching it together,

Photo: CBS

Now Brock, do you watch Camryn on The Young and the Restless?

BROCK: Yes, and I will say sometimes when Camryn is at work, our puppy does sit and watch mommy on TV, too!

Is Brock, #TeamTeriah on Y&R, as well?

CAMRYN: Yes, Brock is all about #TeamTeriah. It was actually really beautiful kind of getting engaged around the same time, Mariah and Tessa did on the show.

In another post of yours on social media, I saw that you had picked a spot for your wedding to Brock.   

CAMRYN: Yes. We don’t actually have a set date (we have three options), but we did pick a location.  So, we will be figuring that all out very soon.

Check out a clip from ‘Mickey Saves Christmas’ featuring Camryn as Mrs. Clause and Brock as Santa below.  Then let us know, will you be watching the special? What did you think of Camryn getting to work on this project and opposite the love-of-her-life, Brock Powell? Share your thoughts in the comment section.

Patrick Duffy and Linda Purl Talk On Their Guest Star Turn on The Bold and the Beautiful, Bobby Ewing and ‘Dallas’, and Finding Love with Each Other

On today’s episode of The Bold and the Beautiful, arriving on to the scene during a crucial moment for Brooke (Katherine Kelley Lang) is none other than real-live lovebirds, Patrick Duffy and Linda Purl.

Duffy’s appearance marks the first time he had been back on the CBS daytime drama in the role of  Stephen Logan since 2011.  He had left his role on the soap to join the cast of TNT’s Dallas reboot to reprise his signature TV role of Bobby Ewing.

Photo: CBS

Now 11 years later, Patrick returns, but he brings with him, Linda Purl, heralded for so many memorable TV movies of the week earlier in her career.  In story, Stephen comes t0 Los Angeles with his new girlfriend, Lucy (Purl), only to stumble on drama with the Logan sisters, Brooke, Katie (Heather Tom) and Donna (Jennifer Gareis).  The two also appear on next Monday’s November 28th episode.

For Purl, this marks her second foray into the world of the soaps.  Just recently, she appeared on General Hospital as Peyton, who definitely provided angst and drama for Carly (Laura Wright) when Carly was stuck in Jacksonville.  Fans loved Purl’s performance on the ABC daytime drama series. Don’t be too surprised if Linda winds up with a Daytime Emmy nomination next year for her work.

Photo: ABC

Michael Fairman caught up with Patrick and Linda for a virtual interview now on You Tube’s Michael Fairman Channel.
