Y&R's Daniel Goddard Video Interview: The Life & Times Of Cane Ashby!

Daniel Goddard has had such an interesting run as Cane Ashby on The Young and the Restless.  It’s had its moments behind the scenes, and quite the complex character history in front of the screen!  Throughout it all, one thing can be said, Goddard remains a steadfast fan favorite with the top-rated soap.

On-Air On-Soaps Michael Fairman caught up with Daniel during Y&R’s 11,000th episode on set celebration at CBS Television City, where they bantered about the twists and turns of Cane, and the reigniting of the Billy and Cane feud now that Jason Thompson (Billy) has taken over the role.

When discussing the history of Cane (remember when he came to town believed-to-be Phillip Chancellor III?), Daniel expressed: “People ask me, ‘Tell me about your character?’  How do I tell them about this character?  It’s not like Nick Newman (Joshua Morrow): ‘I’m rich, Victor’s my dad, and I’m with chicks.” (Laughs)  You know what I mean?  How do you explain Cane?   It sounds like a soap opera!  And people would say to me, ‘I bet one day you are going to get an evil twin!’ And I say, ‘Funny, you should say that!”‘

And let’s not forget that historic fan protest over Daniel originally being let-go from the show … when an airplane flew over CBS!  Goddard recalls, “That was insane, but that was the fans!  That was a huge moment, and it made me realize every day we do this job, we don’t realize the impact we have with the viewers at home.  Then you see something like that (the plane), and you realize that all this work that we do, and everything we do, means so much to people. So, when the viewers did that … it was so amazing.”

Now in story, Cane and Billy are once again rivals, but made to work together by Jill!   Goddard shared his thoughts on working with Jason Thompson:  “Jason’s great.  I was really excited to hear that they were going to do the Cane and Billy thing again.  It had been six years, and it was one of those moments (and I hadn’t worked with Jason yet, but I had seen his work on GH), when I realized that he has a really different take on Billy.  And his take on Billy is not the goofy guy who keeps messing up.  He’s the guy that looks like he actually enjoys messing up, and if people don’t like it, it’s their problem.  In other words, “This is me, and if you don’t like it, that’s your problem.”  Jason’s owned the role.  So, to have Cane and Billy back in the same storyline is great.  Jason and I have a real good work flow when we do scenes together, and Jess Walton is in the storyline, and Amelia Heinle (Victoria) is in the storyline.  The cute thing with the quadrangle is  … Jess is really now Cane’s stepmom, because she is married to Cane’s dad, Colin (Tristan Rogers)  Then Colin is really Billy’s stepdad, so Billy is now Cane’s step-brother!  It’s great.  We never really had that going on before.”

Watch Daniel’s interview below! Then let us know, what has been your favorite character moment in Cane’s character history? What do you hope goes down between Billy and Cane?  Do you want them to be adversaries or work for the common good? Comment below!

Thank you for the interview! Daniel is the Best!

I agree, thank you, Michael – awesome interview.

I want to like this guy, but he’s just not working for me. I think Cane and Lilly are two of the most boring characters…together…on daytime. DG is much better when he’s not paired with Christel Khalil.
He must think so too? I don’t think he mentioned her once in this article.

They aren’t boring to me. I wish they could be on more, and given an actual storyline to give their loyal fans something to watch on Y&R. Personally, I don’t watch unless they are on, and even then my patience is tested because they are always propping the succubus that Devon married.

Cane and Lily deserve the airtime of the rest of the cast – I resent the way they are treated.

This character needs to be retired. I’m mean after the Phillip reveal he’s never been able to carry a SL. He seems like a really nice guy, but even in his own SL he was upstaged by his on screen parents. I ffwd all Lily/Cane scenes because they are so gooey sweet & not in a good way. Other than telling lies, he’s never done anything canvas worthy. And I truly do believe every regime has tried to find a place for this character. And still wondering what qualifies him for all these corporate jobs they keep giving him. Also, without Jill propping him up this character would be even more useless. But I’m truly so happy that Jill has finally been given screen time with her REAL son vs the con man. Those scenes with Jill/Billy were layered with so much history, and both actors were incredible.

Has ANY Cane scene ever truly emotionally resonated with you guys? Just wondering, cause he does have a fan base.

I strongly disagree with you. No regime since MAB wanted to write for Cane, he’s an amazing actor who got backboned for almost a decade and never gets a chance to show his acting abilities. He got by far the worst ‘stories’ with Cane’s lying, keeping secrets (with very little screen time) but he’s still one of the most popular characters on the show besides that all they ever write is his wife cheating on him. Cane’s writing was good when he started on the show.
You might like the Jill and Billy scenes but what I do know is that most of the viewers are fed up with the the way she acts and already want her gone

+backburned (autocorrect)

The character of Cane certainly resonates with me. Other than his fabulous chemistry with Lily, Cane and Jill’s chemistry has always been better than Jill and Billy’s. Cane appreciates Jill and accepts her for who she is. Billy is simply a big entitled angry baby that will not accept the fact that Jill made mistakes but she loves him regardless of his faults – it’s called growing up. I am so glad that Cane is given the opportunity to have a s/l that doesn’t involve propping Devon and that vicious manipulator he married. Now if only Lily could step out of their shadow as well. I would love to see Mr. and Mrs. Ashby have separate but equal storylines that will allow them to have individual lives but strengthen their relationship. I love them and want them to be front and center for once.

Did that answer your question?

@Michael. You bring up a great point about no one writing for him. Thats why I was saying that after the Phillip reveal the character has been useless, not the actor. But part of the problem is that outside of Lily the character has never been fleshed out or had a life outside of Lily. Im not a fan of them together personally, but thats just me also preferring LIly #2 over CK. But hey everyone has a fan base.

But I will say the one time I actually started to get into Cane was during the period that GF was playing his mom, because there was such a wealth of SL potential, but then GF left the moment JFP came onboard because of their toxic history. He finally was getting some material because all of her sneakiness, and then it was all dropped.

Also because of the wonderful relationship Billy/Jill had from his teen years, it was always frustrating that they only wrote them together as if Billy didnt exist. I guess at the end of the day this show just hasnt had any true balance and familiar ties. And maybe thats why the character has never resonated with me, because he’s never been given anything to resonate about.

@Cindy I know we disagree about CK, but maybe she’s my problem with the Lily/Cane pairing because I personally find them dull. So hopefully now that Sally is coming aboard they will get some attention to right some wrongs.

I really honestly wish that TPTB at #YR back when he was initially fired and let go had stuck to their guns. I d think that Cane is boring as hell! Cane can fall off of a cliff and never come back aka Drucilla for all I care.

Fortunately, not everyone share your opinion. I love the character. He is honorable, loyal, protective. The mistakes he made were for the right reasons, they were never self serving or for nefarious purposes.

He and Lily are my favorite characters on the show, and I wish Daniel and Christel will finally get the opportunity to spread their wings on this show for once. I hate that he has to compete for a position that Billy and Victoria had to be begged to accept.

I think Cane and Lily are much better than the disparate treatment the receive. Their organic chemistry is off the charts, and their huge fan base are often disgusted about the fact that they are unfairly slighted so often.

Oops, posted the rough draft, below is the edited version:

Fortunately, not everyone shares your opinion. I love the character. He is honorable, loyal, and protective. The mistakes he made were for the right reasons, they were never self-serving or for nefarious reasons.

He and Lily are my favorite characters on the show, and I hope Daniel and Christel will finally get the opportunity to spread their wings for once. I hate that he has to compete for a position that Billy and Victoria had to be begged to accept, and I hope he pulls the rug from under all of them professionally, not sneaky and smarmy. Or better yet, start a company to compete with Brash & Sassy.

I think Cane and Lily deserve much better than the disparate treatment they receive. Their organic chemistry is off the charts, and their huge fan base is often disgusted about the fact that they are unfairly slighted so often.

People still mad bout Cane ressurrection ??? LMAO !! please get a life…. I love DG as Cane. He needs a good storyline. He did a great job on the ghost/twintig storyline…and with CK he got the best of them all…. I’m happy to see writers care enough about the fans to keep this couple together….they have a HUGE fanbase..

Days Of Our Lives

Ron Carlivati Talks on Decision to Make Days of our Lives 15000th Episode About Doug’s Funeral, and Previews Chances for WGA Award

This week, Days of our Lives celebrated the taping of their 15,000th episode. In of it itself, that is an incredible accomplishment for the long-running soap opera currently streaming on Peacock.

However, this on set gathering was a bit different. Though the show is celebrating their achievement, they are also in the middle of taping scenes surrounding the death and the funeral of Doug Williams, played by the late Bill Hayes, who passed away on January 12th of this year at the age of 98.

As previously revealed many longtime favorites are back to honor Bill and the character of Doug including: Gloria Loring (Liz), Melissa Reeves (Jennifer), Matthew Ashford (Jack), Maree Cheatham (Marie), Victoria Konefal (Ciara) and Stephen Schnetzer (Steve) to name but a few.

Michael Fairman TV was in attendance and spoke with Days of our Lives head writer, Ron Carlivati to gain some insight into how the 15,000 episode was crafted and the decision to honor the character of Doug Williams and Bill Hayes as its epicenter. In addition, Ron weighed-in on this Sunday’s April 14th WGA (Writers Guild of America) Awards, where he and his writing team are facing off with General Hospital for the daytime drama prize. Here’s what Ron shared below.

Was this your idea to make the 15,000th episode centered around Doug’s funeral and passing?

RON: It was. When you’re looking at it, and laying out the calendar for the whole year and you see 15,000 is coming up, we’re like, “What are we going to do?” And then, we got the news that Bill had passed away and something kind of clicked. I was like, “We should honor Doug on that show.” So then, we started to kind of build around that … when does he pass away? How does he pass away? Who could come back? You know, it’s a lot.  I’m very pleased with the returns that we got as there’s so much that you could do. We wanted everybody we could get. So, we put together a wish list and Janet Drucker (co-executive producer, Days of our Lives) made it happen.

You have Melissa Reeves back as Jennifer, when the role was last played by Cady McClain. What has it meant to have Missy back for these shows?

RON: It was so nice to see Missy Reeves. I think Cady has done such a good job, but on the 15,000th episode to see Missy as Jennifer, it’s a big deal. So having her was great, and overall, the milestone was a big undertaking, because you want to live up to it. You want the 15,000th episode to be good. Now, it has a lot of real emotion that you’re playing. because for the cast and the crew they’re honoring Bill Hayes just as much as we’re honoring Doug Williams.

Photo: JPI

Was it hard for you and the team to write this episode?

RON: Yes. I’ll tell you why it was hard to write.  When I wrote, for example, Asa’s (Phillip Carey) death on One Life to Live or Victor’s (John Aniston) on DAYS, Asa is a different type of character. Like, you could have characters going, “Oh! I’m glad he is dead.” You could have different points of view, but with Doug, you’re not having that. Every person loves this man. No one had a bad relationship with him. So, you’re challenge as a writer is how do you make it that not everybody’s saying the same thing and doing the same thing. And so, we tried to find ways to make the episode about all the familial relationships and yet, how do you make it about Doug and yet broaden the scope.

Photo: JPI

I had spoken to Susan Seaforth Hayes (Julie), a week after Bill’s memorial, for an interview. She said that she felt very fortunate that you did include her on discussions of how you would tackle Doug’s passing. How did that conversation go?

RON: First, I attended Bill’s funeral, which was incredible. I said to so many people it was an emotional service, but it was hard to be sad at this. The guy had an incredible life and it was an incredible celebration. And so, you’re sitting there watching this knowing that you now have to write something similar. And how do you write something that lives up to what you just witnessed? I wanted to talk to Susan to get her thoughts about, you know, how much do you want this to be about keeping Bill separate from Doug. How comfortable are you sharing your grief. She was incredible to talk to. It was a great chat.

You’re in the middle of taping these major scenes for the 15,000 episode to air in December. How do you think it’s going? Have you seen any of the scenes?

RON:  I haven’t seeing anything. I mean, we were still making changes to the script up till this morning!

Photo: JPI

The Writers Guild Awards are this Sunday, April 14th and once again this year there are two daytime drama nominees, General Hospital and Days of our Lives. How are you feeling about your chances this year?

RON: It is often just GH and us in the category. I’ve won three years in a row, so I’m kind of feeling like it’s their turn.

Photo: JPI

What episodes did you submit for contention? If I recall, they had to do with Victor’s memorial.

RON: The episodes we submitted were centered around Victor’s funeral. I think one has story with Vivian. We had some fun stuff, we had some emotional stuff at Victor’s death, and I am pretty sure that our submission was three episodes right around that time.

Did you make the decision to go with those episodes because there was a mix of humor and drama?

RON: I like to have some humor, but it was also the funeral, then there’s Sarah (Linsey Godfrey) giving birth, and then Vivian’s (Louise Sorel) crashing the reading of the will. So, we had a lot of fun and it’s hard sometimes to pick three that tell a story, as opposed to submitting for the Daytime Emmys, where the writing team only submits two shows.  So, we shall see how it goes on Sunday.

Days Of Our Lives

(INTERVIEW) Eric Martsolf Previews DAYS Stars on ‘Weakest Link’, How He Fared in the Game, Plus Welcoming New Tate, Leo Howard

Tuesday night on NBC’s Weakest Link (9 p.m. ET/PT), the stars of Days our of Lives test their knowledge, and try to win big money for the charity of their choice on the newest season of the popular game show hosted by Jane Lynch. In case you miss it, you can also catch the episode on Wednesday streaming on Peacock.

The question on everyone’s mind is … who will be revealed as Salem’s weakest link? Who will be left standing at the end of the game? DAYS favorites: Eric Martsolf (Brady) Brynn Dattilo (Lucas), Galen Gering (Rafe), Martha Madison (Belle), Victoria Konefal (ex-Ciara), Zach Tinker (Sonny), Tina Huang (Melinda) and Lindsay Arnold (ex-Allie) play while literally having the task of throwing their co-stars under the bus. The contestant who receives the highest number of votes leaves the game throughout, as Lynch declares their exit with the now iconic phrase, “You are the Weakest Link. Goodbye.” 

Michael Fairman TV caught up with Eric Martsolf, who daytime fans know is great as a host in his own right and oh-so-fun at playing any trivia game you throw at him. Martsolf gave us the inside scoop of what it was like to be on the set and backstage in a rather nerve-wracking environment, and trying to come off as smart while Jane Lynch roasts you at the same time!

In addition, Eric shared his thoughts on the new Tate, as Leo Howard takes over the role of his on-screen son from Jamie Martin Mann on the April 5th episode of Days of our Lives, plus working with Emily O’Brien as Theresa, and the loss of the legendary Bill Hayes. Check out what Eric had to say below.

Did you know about the game before? Had you watched the original version of the Weakest Link, or this latest incarnation?

ERIC: I was very, very familiar with the game because I found, as someone who enjoys hosting, that has to be one of the best hosting gigs out there because they just have extreme liberties in belittling the contestants, and it’s all done in jest of course, but it’s great. Jane Lynch is a master.

Did you get to meet Jane Lynch before she hit the stage for the taping?

ERIC: I don’t think any of us met her prior to being on the set. So, we’re standing there behind our podiums and these cyber lights just point all in one direction. At one point when we’re out there, it was kind of a hurry up and wait thing. We’re just like, “When is this going to start?” Then, here Jane comes and in all her glory in a beautiful navy-blue suit. She just prances onto stage and just glares over at us, and starts making fun of a silly soap opera actors like you wouldn’t believe. It was just great. I’ll let the public see what how she crucified us. But it was all done in fun.

Photo: NBC

Did she crucify you?

ERIC: I don’t think anybody got out unscathed to be honest with you.

For those that don’t know the game, you try to eliminate those that are the weakest in answering questions.

ERIC: Correct, and therein lies the problem. Historically, I think the Weakest Link is comprised of contestants that don’t really know each other, and in this case, you have not only coworkers, but almost family members because we all know each other very, very well. It’s a tight circle and even more so when you’re on the same show. So, we all went in into it pretty nervous because the premise of the game is to expose the inadequacy of people’s knowledge of general facts and information. So, essentially, you’re voting each other off because you don’t think they’re as smart as you are and that they’re the least smart in the group. So, I mean, that in itself is pretty, pretty tough to swallow. It was really hard, because you have to look at your friends in the eye and go, “yeah, I don’t think you’re going to get the next couple questions. You’re not the smartest, you’re not the crispiest chip in the bag. I’m going to let you go. ”

Did you feel bad about some of the eliminations?

ERIC: At one point, without giving away any spoilers, I voted off someone that without a doubt, has more smarts and education than I do. I just felt silly. But, you know, the way the game was going, I just felt it was the right. There is a bit of strategy involved. I’m worried about the airing of this particular episode because I did fumble some questions that people are going to turn their heads and go, “Really? You didn’t get that one?” It’s so much easier to answer these questions at home in your pajamas than it is, you know, looking at Jane Lynch in the eye with 6,000 lights at your face in front of cameras. Your brain tends to wander. So yes, we all had had some answers that we couldn’t believe we didn’t get at the time!

Photo: NBC

Did it get very competitive?

ERIC: There was little competition there. If I recall, it’s Galen and Bryan that went at it a little bit and had some laughs. But again, I can’t stress this enough, it was all done with fun. At the end of the day, every one of us wanted to win. I think the smartest person did actually come out victorious.

Now in the game, for those that have never seen it, you’re on your podium, and then Jane gives a question, right?

ERIC:  It’s a firing squad of questions. You only have a certain amount of time to answer. If you get the correct answer or the wrong answer, you immediately, go to the next contestant and you have a certain amount of time. And then, at the end of that line of questioning, everyone gets to vote as to who they believed was the biggest dummy in the group. (Laughs) Some questions are simple. You know, “What color is Santa Claus’ suit?” And then, the next question is “What is 648,000 times 14?” or what’s the population of some obscure country? So, that was the biggest challenge. Someone else might get, “What is the main ingredient of a banana split?” And my question could be like, “How much is 9,430 times x 59 million?” There’s an intimidation factor that Jane Lynch brings to it when she’s staring you down.

Photo: NBC

When the cast finished the entire game, what happened backstage?

ERIC:  The best part was there were these post interviews that the Weakest Link conducts where you have to go into a dark black room. I think my first question was, “How did you feel about that wrong answer?” They don’t let up. They just keep jabbing at you. “Did you feel ridiculous getting the wrong answer to that fourth-grade level question?” (Laughs) There was also a lot of trash talk with that happened after the show. It got so competitive. If I recall, we were all supposed to go out together and get a meal with everybody, and that never happened. They’re like, “I’m not eating lasagna with you right now. You just voted me off!” Now, even the first person that gets voted off, you’re going to be shocked, because I thought this person would probably win it. In the game, you want the best people to remain on the panel because that’s what drives up the money.

Photo: JPI

Later this week on DAYS, we will see the debut of your new on-screen son, Leo Howard, taking over from Jamie Martin Mann as Tate.

ERIC: How about that?  I just did a post on Instagram, because I saw that Jamie Martin Mann had liked and hearted a post about Leo Howard coming on the show. I just thought that was so classy of him. That’s the way it’s supposed to be, “This is the new guy. Embrace him. He’s good. I’ve met him. He is a good guy.” It’s about handing off the character baton sometimes, sort to speak. I was really proud of those guys. I reached out to Jamie. He just wants to go to college and be a student. I understand that. That’s important.

Photo: JPI

Is that challenging for you as an actor since you’ve built this relationship with the one guy as your son, and now you’ve got to pivot and create a different kind of energy with someone else taking on the part?

ERIC: Leo Howard has been in the industry for a while, with some very good credits to his name. He brings a certain charisma to this role that I think people are really going to love. And yes, he’s older, but he plays younger, and he has that ability and he’s pulling it off brilliantly. I can’t wait for people to see him, but of course I miss Jamie. Emily O’Brien (Theresa) and I really grew to love him very quickly because the storyline got so deep, so quickly, with the drug intervention and then him getting beat up in in prison. I mean, as a father, that’s the kind of stuff that you have nightmares about, you know, your kids being in pain.

Photo: JPI

I still love the fact that Emily O’Brien is still noticeably wearing a blonde wig as Theresa. What are your thoughts on how the transition has been for you, and for her pivoting to a completely different role?

ERIC: I hadn’t worked with Emily much before, because Gwen and Brady never really crossed paths. We all saw the transition that she had to make. When I became Brady, the character hadn’t been on the map for three years.  When she became Theresa, she walks out one gate and comes through the other as Theresa. We all had a good giggle about it. That’s hard to ask an audience to go,  OK, I’m Gwen, now I’m Theresa.” I was scrolling through X (formerly Twitter) and I saw a couple posts from fans that said how they were really weary, at first, about accepting Emily O’Brien as Theresa. But after today’s episode, they shared, “I’m loving her as Tate’s mom, and the chemistry she has with the family.” I texted Emily and I said, “I just want to let you know that you’re just bringing it home really brilliantly, and people are starting to come around.” I think they’ll do that with Leo Howard too.

Photo: JPI

What had it been like without the iconic Bill Hayes (Doug Williams) coming to work and being part of the Days of our Lives cast since his passing?

ERIC: You really do miss that presence in the hallways. He was a song and dance guy and I am a song and dance guy. as well. I kind of find myself the lone singer in the makeup room sometimes, but I could always count on Bill. He’d be humming some old tune from the sixties. I’d start humming along and he’d just kind of lean over and take a look at me, and give a little smile. Everyone else was probably irritated at us, but we just kept singing along. and it’s like 6:30 in the morning. I think Bill was a lot like the late John Aniston (ex-Victor), in the sense that I don’t really feel like he felt he was working. He was just always having fun right up until the end. That little number he did with his wife, Susan Seaforth Hayes (Julie), and Dick Van Dyke (guest starring as Timothy Robicheaux), where he was singing along, he was just living it. It was so cute and so adorable to watch.

Photo: JPI

Your final tease for the Weakest Link tonight is, “Fans should watch because …”

ERIC: Fans should watch it because if they thought we were smart before, wait till they see the show.

You can check out the cold open for tonight’s Weakest Link “Days of our Lives special” below.

Now let us know, will you be watching Eric and his co-stars, past and present, attempting to showcase their knowledge on the ‘Weakest Link? Intrigued to see Leo Howard and Eric in scenes as new Tate and his father, Brady? Share your thoughts in the comment section.

Interviews

The Young and the Restless’ Michael Damian On Christine/Danny/Phyllis: “It’s a Fun Triangle Story That They’re Having Us Do, Because It’s Very Retro”

This week on The Young and the Restless, while Danny (Michael Damian) and Christine (Lauralee Bell) hit the sheets, and Phyllis (Michele Stafford) sets off an alarm as payback (literally!), the top-rated CBS soap opera continues to weave the tale of these three characters decades later, finding themselves in very familiar territory with each other.

We know that Christine and Phyllis are basically, mortal enemies, while Danny, who has been the man in the middle, has had a past with both women. However, it is Christine who has been, for all intent and purposes the love of his life.  But, will Phyllis’ machinations make it near to impossible for Danny and Christine to be together? Stay tuned.

Last week, Michael and his real-life wife, Janeen Damian visited the Michael Fairman Channel promoting their #1 streaming film on Netflix, Irish Wish starring Lindsay Lohan. The film was produced by the Damians, while Janeen directed it and co-wrote the romantic story. Michael is featured on the Irish Wish soundtrack performing his track, Wild Irish Heart.

During the conversation, Michael shared what it has been like revisiting the Christine/Danny/Phyllis triangle years later. Damian addressed the fans on the livestream, who inquired. “It’s a fun triangle story that they’re having us do, because it’s very retro. And I think it’s fun to bring that nostalgia, retro thing back.”

Recalling a tender moment between Danny on the piano alone with Christine (during the standalone episode which honored Lauralee Bell’s 40th anniversary with Y&R), Michael expressed, “I think what they’re doing is so smart, and they’re reconnecting a lot of the fans to a lot of the story. I mean, we’re talking years and years of story.”

Photo: JPI

The longtime Y&R fan favorite, added, “I’m really glad they did the thing on the piano because people have been asking, ‘Why are you not doing any music? Why are you not singing? Where’s your band?’ You know what I mean? Janeen is asking the same thing, ‘Why aren’t you singing something on the show?’ The last time I sang on the show was when we thought Phyllis was dead. So, you know, that didn’t count. (Laughs)

One of the funniest moment in the revisiting of the triangle occurred when Phyllis and Christine were arguing over Danny, and he was right there in the room with them. The two women got so engrossed in their fight, they forgot he was there, and thus he walked out of the room.

Photo: JPI

Michael revealed, he liked that scene too! “They’re fighting. They’re arguing and Danny’s like, ‘Listen, I’m over here. Please stop it.” And then they don’t stop,” Damian recalled. “And so Danny just grabs his coat, picks up his sheet music, because he was working on a song. He goes to the door. In the scene, I even look back to see if they are even noticing me leave, and then I just left. That one was pretty funny. I’ll be honest. I was laughing out in the hallway when I left. I was thinking, ‘Should I slam the door? But then if I slam the door, they still have dialogue.’ They’re still talking and they would’ve turned, and then it would’ve ruined it. So, I just gently closed the door and left.

Photo: JPI

During the livestream, Damian teased he has some upcoming scenes with longtime Y&R co-star Beth Maitland (Traci), “I just worked with Beth Maitland actually the other day, and that was really fun. I can’t wait for people to see that show.”

Check out the the Michael Fairman Channel chat with Michael and Janeen Damian below.

Now, let us know, are you rooting for Danny and Christine? Do you think Phyllis will continue to be a disruptor in this relationship and somehow worm her way back into Dannys good graces? Share your thoughts in the comment section. But first check out this sneak peek for this week’s Y&R featuring the trio.
