I would SO love to see this – but not available in Canada.

I’ve never been a fan of soap weddings mainly because, chances are, they won’t last. Witness Kyle & Lola, Chase & Willow on GH, and the dozens of marriages of Nikki, Victor, etc. Beautiful trappings but in service of what?

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Mishael Morgan Reveals Why She’s Taken ‘A Bit of a Step Back’ From Y&R and Gone on Recurring Status

This past June, we all celebrated the groundbreaking victory of The Young and the Restless‘ Mishael Morgan (Amanda Sinclair) as the first Black actress to ever win in the Lead Actress in a Drama Series category during the 49th annual Daytime Emmy Awards.

In the months that followed, Mishael has not been seen as much on the top-rated CBS daytime drama, plus when fans noticed she was no longer in the opening main credits, it got them wondering just what is Morgan’s status with the show.

Finally today, via video on her Instagram story, Mishael shared some news after finishing her day of taping in Genoa City.

The Emmy-winner revealed she has indeed gone on recurring status with the show: “I just wrapped my last scenes back at Y&R, and I just wanted to let the cat out of the bag a little bit.  A lot of people have noticed that my name is not on the main credits anymore, and I wanted everybody to know that it was my decision.  I decided, actually, back in December, that I wanted to take a bit of a step back from the show.  I just felt like at this point in my life and this point in my career, I wanted to mix things up a little bit. But Y&R will always be home. I have so appreciated this safe place to land that they have given me, so I know that I can be back. They are like family to me, and coming back just reminds me of that.”

Morgan also thanked the loyal viewers and her followers expressing, “I’m so appreciative of you guys, and all the fans who have supported me along this Y&R journey. But I’m still on it, I’m still going to be recurring, so you’ll still catch me in Genoa City.”

The talented star ended with a tease of projects and roles to come, telling her fans to, “Keep looking out for new things.”

So will you miss not seeing Mishael as much on Y&R?  Are you exciting to see what roles and projects she gets involved with next? Are you glad she is still recurring with the show and will continue to make appearances in stories? Comment below.
