Since Elizabeth Hendrickson’s (Chloe) return to The Young and the Restless, she has wasted no time in shaking things up on the Genoa City canvas in a major way, and there is plenty more to come!

As viewers have witnessed, Chloe in her thirst for revenge has done such unimaginable things, starting with teaming up with Victor Newman (Eric Braeden) to ruin Adam Newman’s (formerly Justin Hartley) life and put behind bars forever. Now Chloe is living with her best friend, Chelsea (Melissa Claire Egsn), who is grieving the loss of her husband Adam, after Chloe set him up to die!  And there is still the issue of just who is the biological father of her daughter Bella?  What will happen when the truth comes out?  Is it really Billy Abbott’s (Jason Thompson) little girl?  And, will Chloe and Kevin rekindle their relationship?

To get some insight to all of these questions and much more, On-Air On-Soaps Michael Fairman sat down with Elizabeth Hendrickson for this very special video interview to talk about many of the recent pivotal moments fans of the top-rated soap have watched, and to preview what is still to come.  Here are just a few of the key excerpts from Liz and Michael’s chitchat below.

When asked if Elizabeth was surprised to return to Y&R, she related: “It was a total surprise, but it was a good surprise.  I was pleasantly surprised, but out of the blue for me.  But, I knew it was going to be juicy, and they made an offer I couldn’t refuse.”

As to if Liz knew that her return was a huge part to Adam’s exit storyline and that she would be the one to destroy Adam, Hendrickson noted: “They didn’t say ‘destroy’ Adam, but I knew Adam was in the mix.  I knew there was a chance that Justin Hartley was going somewhere. Sometimes people think that we know what’s going (behind the scenes), but not really.  But, I had a feeling that was a piece of the puzzle.”

Chloe’s been acting “crazy” in her vendetta against Adam, but Hendrickson shared she thinks of her differently: “I kind of changed the wording from “crazy” to her “reality” and her reality is, and has always been, that she is going to avenge her daughter Delia’s death, and that Delia needs the justice that is deserved.  So I don’t think Chloe necessarily has it all planned out.  I think she is more of a spontaneous girl.  I don’t think she sits there with her entire plan and maps it out.  But, I think all of these emotions brings them up, and stirs her up, and then she thinks, “Oh! This is the best plan.”   Then, she goes for it.  Adam has always been at the top of her list.”

When Liz read the script that Chloe walks in to Adam’s cabin in those huge boots preparing to kill him, she shared: “I heard that there was going to be this show, where I was shooting Adam with a tranquilizer.  I am like, “What?  I get to do that?”   I love playing the fun stuff.  I don’t think I realized the magnitude of everything that was really happening.”

As to what Chloe might have done with Adam once she paralyzed him with the tranquilizer, before the explosion that “killed him”, Liz shared: “In my mind her intention was just to have him suffer, and I think her use of a tranquilizer was her hoping Adam would have a slow death.  But, I don’t think her plan was to have him blown up!  She had nothing to do with the explosion.”

Now that Adam is believed to be ‘dead”, does Chloe know where he is? Liz expressed: “No, I don’t think she really knows, nor, do I think she really cares.  After she finds out the explosion happen, she kind of feels bad, but secretly, deep down inside, that is all she ever wanted.  But she constantly has that pull back to Chelsea.  She does feel guilt, only because she loves Chelsea so much, and she sees the pain she is in, but then Chloe has to remind herself, ‘No. This is really what you wanted.’   When this story comes to a head, I am very interested to see what those scenes will be like between Chelsea and Chloe, because they are going to be massive.  It’s a really big, huge reveal for her.”

Though it was a short amount of time, Liz had nothing but fantastic things to say about exited star Justin Hartley, who is now starring on NBC’s This Is Us:  “He was phenomenal.  I am so bummed that I got a month to work with him.   I loved our scenes in the jail and I wish there was more.  There is a reason he ended up on a primetime show.  Justin is a heavy-hitter.  He’s an awesome actor, and he is also an awesome guy.”

Another heavy-hitter Liz has gotten the opportunity to work with is Eric Braeden – for Victor and Chloe were originally in cahoots to bring Adam to his knees.  Liz shared:   “That was one piece of the puzzle, I never knew.  I did not know I would be so connected with Victor, and that we would be this new little duo!  I had never worked with him before, not one on one.  I have had scenes with him where I have been in the same room with him with other characters.  But I love working with Eric.  Right now as its airing, Victor worries Chloe.  He can do some serious things, but they are not really in cahoots together anymore.”

Being good pals with Melissa Claire Egan, Hendrickson relates that a great work day is one that also has Missy in it: “Missy and I have the best time. When I am acting with her it’s like I am sitting there with my girlfriend, but when I am acting, I am being the worst friend in the world.  (Laughs) I respect Missy so much as an actress.  She is so talented”

Is there hope for a Kevin/Chloe relationship redo? Liz revealed: “Chloe sees Kevin just as a friend, but … I think Chloe still has some issues, and I don’t think she is really ready to be alone.   Unfortunately she can be an easy target.   Not that she uses him, because I don’t think she does it an intentional way.  I think Chloe really loves Kevin, and no one loves him like the way that she does.  I think she gets confused over what she wants and what she needs.  But what you will start to see is that Chloe is going to start to need him for support and she may blur those lines, between friendship and relationship.”

Courtesy/CBS

The big story coming up is who is truly Bella’s baby daddy, and fans suspect it will be Billy’s child.  But Liz admits: “I don’t really know, but I have an idea, and I would love it if it was Billy’s and I got to work with Jason Thompson more.  Mainly because I feel like they dropped the ball with Chloe and Billy many years ago.  I think that is a story that could be revisited, and they really didn’t deal with two parents losing their child.  It was more like he lost her and he’s over here, and I lost her and I’m over there.   Billy went through that with Victoria (Amelia Heinle), not with Chloe. I think how parents go through a lost like that is much more interesting story to be told.   That being said, I have always been a huge fan of Jason Thompson when he was on General Hospital.  We have mutual friends and whenever I would run into him, I would say, ‘Jason, you are my favorite soap guy” – he was just always my favorite.  So when they called me to come to Y&R, Jason being here was a large part of me coming back.  I said, ‘Yes, I want to work with him.’ I love that Jason is playing my on-screen ex-husband, Billy.”

Having worked in soaps for ten years, both in the casts of All My Children and Y&R, Liz knows that recasts are hard for the actors involved and the fans, but feels Jason Thompson is making Billy his own: “The hardest job in the world is to step into someone else’s shoes, and those shoes were refilled three times by the time Jason came to Y&R.  I think when Billy Miller (Ex-Billy, now Jason GH) stepped into those shoes, he made quite a mark.  I can see that they were hard shoes to fill, but you can’t expect anyone to be the same.  As actor’s, we don’t take over roles to be like someone else.  We take on the role and put our take on it.  I feel for the fans when something like this happens, as for them it can be alarming, but in regards to Jason in the role of Billy, I think he is doing a great job!”

Going back a beat when Chloe left the show before, she became pregnant which gave viewers clues as to who could be Bella’s daddy, Hendrickson recounted:  “So Chloe left town with the sperm, but she also slept with Kevin that day, so that’s why there is this “Who’s the daddy?” story.  Then she came back to town secretly pregnant, and then the next time she came back, I guess Bella was hanging out in the loony bin, because she was being babysat by one of the nurses, while she made that little trip to GC.” (Laughs)

Elizabeth admitted her joy of being back at Y&R: “Being back is a hundred times bigger and better than I could ever imagine.  Moving forward, Chloe is goings to piss people off!  I love playing a bitch!” (Laughs)

Watch the full Elizabeth Hendrickson video interview below. Then weigh-in: What did you think of Chloe’s part in “Adam’s death”?  Working in cahoots with Victor?   What do you think will happen when Chelsea finds out what her best friend has done to her husband?  Are you rooting for Kevin and Chloe to get back together? Who will turn out to be Bella’s bio-dad?  If it is Billy’s, what kind of relationship would you like Chloe to have with him?  And finally, are you thrilled Liz Hendrickson is back on Y&R adding more excitement and unexpected moments into the daytime drama series?  Share your thoughts on the interviews and more in the comment section below!

Nice interview and EH is a fine actress. But I find the character of Chloe incredibly annoying. And I don’t usually mind “bitchy” characters. I dread “Chilly” and hope Bella isn’t Billy’s. I actually wish she weren’t even Chloe’s. Just a black market baby.
Just the idea of replacing one kid with another is kind of unacceptable to me (not to speak of the way she did it if Bella is indeed Billy’s kid).

I agree. Also, Kevin and Mariah make a far better couple than he and Chloe do.

I want Chloe with Cane. He needs a lift!

We do agree on this, my darling, Harry…..
Mariah and Kevin have such great camaraderie, which is normally hard to come by between the opposite sex. That is such a plus in a romantic relationship–lovers AND friends….love it!!
Chloe is too far out there for me. Well, so is Kevin; but, he’s docile. LOL. She’s too untrustworthy.
It seems to me that every move she makes is calculated.

Cane needs a lift and Chloe needs a Cane!!

I agree too. The only reason I would tolerate “Chilly” is if it would reduce JT’s airtime and get NotBilly out of Jack and Phyllis’ orbit. At least I could FF through that.

I don’t care for the character of Chloe at all. I like having a villain in a show but she is just pure evil. Even Victor has a soft spot but this Chloe is awful and if Bella is Billy’s I hope he get custody of her and for what she’s done to her best friend’s husband, I want her in jail. As for Kevin I have been so ticked at him lately. Wake-up already Kevin. Your also better off with Mariah.

You should have Billy Abbott, and Nick Newman, see a Vision of Jesus , and they both become born-again Christians! And make them believeable! Not Weirdo’s! Research those

Why would they do that and how would that be remotely interesting or entertaining?

Hey, Dennis,
I don’t think either Nick or Billy is a weirdo. Nick has come a long way.
Billy? Well, he’s just Billy. What I find weird are the writers.
Within a matter of minutes, Billy tries to make amends—-what an epiphany!!!!!!!! No, no, no, writers; no can’t buy. This sudden switch in personality and heart? No way, Hose’!!!!!
This ‘out-of-left-field’ transformation only makes him look like a psycho.

For some reason I thought she was just coming back on a short term basis.
Like the actress, hate her character. They ruined any sense of empathy viewers might had for her with her murdering Adam. Worse, she seems incredibly possessive of Chelsea and seems to want her all to herself.
I find her character be insidiously creepy but I do admit that actress is very talented.

Who knows how one acts after losing a child. I suppose everyone could act differently. Chloe seems to still not be “Counciled up” enough. But its a soap and we never see a counselor heal a character! Billy let his daughter alone in a car on a dark road. Adam didnt maliciously hit her Daughter. We dont even know that he did it. I still want “Drunk Nikki” to be the one! Or what about Esther? Theres a twist! Chloe is a loose cannon still and it seems to be the time to slow her down.

Celia
Guest
Celia

True, my Timmmy. People react different to the pain of losing a child. Some women do lose their minds, literally. But, let’s not forget that Chloe has always been a manipulative, little hussy. She tried passing Delia off as Cane’s: ergo, the name Cordelia, which he gave her. As Elizabeth discussed with Mr. Fairman, Chloe strongly felt that Delia’s death had not been avenged to its full extend……not until death came to Adam. One loss for another. You’re right. Chloe is not healed. Imagine the internal and mental turmoil she experience, in a world all her own. Is she now… Read more »

I’m desperately hoping that out of nowhere, The writers will bring Adams character back, to reveal what Chloe did then She’s goes to prison and become even crazier then ever, and also he witnesses Chelsea and his brother Nick having a affair but somehow Adam wins Chelsea back after a long family battle royal.

I am desperately hoping that the writers will bring Adams character back on the show and reveal what Chloe did to him, and Chloe barely escapes prison but becomes even more crazy and vows to destroy both Adam and Victor and Adam witnesses his brother Nick and Chelsea have an affair, but after a long family battle royal wins Chelsea back

Uh…No. Kevin and Chloe DO NOT NEED to get back together again!!!!! That ship has SERIOUSLY SAILED!!!!! Also, Kevin (lately) has been behaving like a TOTAL IDIOT…I mean…taking Mariah for granted and everything else!!!!! Most of all, Mariah needs to give that CRAY CRAY Chloe a MUCH-NEEDED BEAT-DOWN!!!!!

Just saying……….

Here is a twist. Adam resurfaces and runs to Chelsea to reveal what Chloe had done to him and Chelsea says she doesnt want to hear it, Chloe and I have moved on, we are getting married in two weeks! Hey now!

I agree. I like Kevin with Mariah, but Mariah deserves better than how Kevin is currently treating her. I would actually like to see Mariah in a front-burner storyline. She’s currently my favorite character.

I agree. Mariah needs to be more than a bodyguard/mouthpiece for Sharon, as they continue to lie about Sally. I would love to see this talented actress carry her own story.

soapqueenforever

I completely agree with you jaybird369. Somebody needs to knock some sense into Chole, and I think Mariah is the perfect one to do it. And when she is done, she can knock some sense into her friend Kevin as well. In the beginning I wanted Kevin to be the father, but with the way he is acting now I’m glad he’s not

Chloe’s return has been a bust from Day One – her “Dorothy Gale” visitations to Victor, shooting Adam with a blowgun and keeping the identity of Bella’s daddy a huge secret has grown old for this longtime viewer.

Well if and when the Sully reveal ever comes out, I have a feeling Sharon will be vacationing in a nice padded cell somewhere

I agree with you Tucker. This whole story needs to be put to rest along with Adam. Enough is enough. Now it’s time to move forward with other issues. I am wondering if the Sully reveal will be next. Then we can watch Sharon crack yet again

Nikki
Guest
Nikki

But the Sully reveal might send Sharon over the edge but it won’t send Summer on any long vacation even now with the break-up of Jack & Phyllis she get’s yet another front burner story as her mom moves in with her. I would love to know what she has on these people cause it sure ain’t acting.

Timmm

Yeah and Chloe and Natalie look a like and they never played on that angle!

Elizabeth Hendrickson is a good actress but I feel like Chloe is such a mess that she really serves no story purpose at this point except to tell Billy he has another another child and to reveal that Adam is alive and being held in some clinic all drugged up and unable to move while she torments him with photos of Chelsea and Connor moving on.

Hopefully Sally Sussman-Morina and Kay Alden can turn the character around and get her out of the corner she’s been written into.

Chloe and Kevin have zero chemistry, as do Mariah and Kevin.

Agree that Chloe and Kevin don’t have much chemistry, however, Kevin and Mariah have something special. It might not be sexual, but it is there. Perhaps a one sided thing that develops into more.

Y&R’s Sharon Case, Mark Grossman & Jordi Vilasuso Talk Love and Betrayal in the Rey/Sharon/Adam Triangle

This week on The Young and the Restless, Sharon (Sharon Case) and Adam’s (Mark Grossman) kiss took centerstage and went viral when a photo of the passionate moment was seen by Sharon’s husband, Rey (Jordi Vilasuso), and fiancée Chelsea (Melissa Claire Egan), and many more citizens of Genoa City!

That moment looks to be a game-changer.  Now what will Rey do? Will he continue to try to salvage his marriage to Sharon? Will wheelchair bound Chelsea, hatch a plan to payback Adam and Sharon? Will Adam and Sharon meet up for some dangerous liaisons? There’s so much to this story left to play out.

Photo: JPI

In a new interview on The Michael Fairman Channel, Sharon Case, Mark Grossman and Jordi Vilasuso chatted candidly about their on-screen love triangle and more including: what happened when Mark auditioned for the key role of Adam, the character of Sharon’s battle with breast cancer, and who Sharon feels is Sharon Newman’s true love, Nick (Joshua Morrow) or Adam? Plus, the trio share their reactions to the news that their castmate, Sasha Calle (Lola) was tapped as the first Latina ‘Supergirl’ in the upcoming DC Universe film, The Flash.

During the conversation, Vilasuso said Rey was not blindsided by Adam and Sharon’s ongoing attraction: “Rey’s known for a long time, c’mon!  I had somebody on Twitter post all the videos on how long I’ve known about Adam and Sharon. (Laughs)  I had still had a beard on the show back then!  What’s he going to do?  I think this Adam sickness, this addiction, this pathology that he has, I think Rey hopes he can just arrest him and he will just go away for ever.  That’s playing in the back of my mind, like, ‘there’s no way Adam can keep up this behavior for much longer’.  Rey is crazy about Sharon. T here’s also some ego involved here, too of, ‘I got to be the guy here.  I can’t lose to this guy’.  But man, does Rey have a threshold for dealing with this stuff.  Remember, his (ex) wife had sex with his brother, and then she did it again, and now they are having a child together… and Rey was still able to move on.”

Photo: JPI

Case clarified from her previous 25th anniversary interview with Fairman, just who is Sharon Newman’s ultimate love, Nick (Joshua Morrow) or Adam?  Case had stated Adam.  The actress explained:  “When you think about what the character’s have been through, the history of The Young and the Restless, how stories are usually told – and what I mean by all that is Nikki (Melody Thomas Scott) and Victor (Eric Braeden) have always been the “It” couple of the history of Y&R and they are very different.  They actually remind me more of Adam and Sharon then Nick and Sharon.  Nick turned out more to be the good son, while Adam was more in the image of his father, and it would be the obvious choice to guess that Nick and Sharon would be endgame.  I think soaps try to not go in the obvious way.  The two men that she has been married to, and were the biggest loves of her life, and both Victor’s kids, choosing between those that is why I said what I said, and why I think that’s true.  Sharon and Adam don’t have all of the pain, that Sharon and Nick have had from multiple cheatings and a loss of a child which is very hard for a couple to ever get past that.   I also think that Sharon and Nick are sort of together now anyways as co-parents and are such good friends.  They have a new relationship – they are not together in a romantic way – but their relationship is really great now and very full for what it is.”

Photo: JPI

Grossman shared that knowing Chelsea has a history of being con-artist, that she could potentially pull some stunts on Adam and Sharon to keep them apart:  “That’s always in the back of his mind.  You know, maybe she will start to con Adam and maybe he might pick up on it, maybe he doesn’t pick up on it, but obviously it’s a really sad situation that Adam is in.  There’s a lot going on in Adam’s life. It’s unfortunate that Connor (his son) is not there as he is off to boarding school, and then Adam wasn’t there because he went to Sharon’s wedding to peek his head in, and Chelsea had her stroke.  So there’s a lot of guilt there.  I think it’s really frustrating to him that he can’t have a conversation with this woman – who is his fiancée – and this is his fault and he caused all this.  But there’s always the underlying pull from Sharon, and after they kiss there are a lot of conflicted feelings there.”

Watch the entire interview with Sharon, Mark and Jordi below.

Now weigh-in: Are you Team Rey or Team Adam? Who do you want Sharon to ultimately wind up with? Share your thoughts and theories in the comment section.

Linda Dano Talks Taking On DAYS Vivian, Heartfelt Memories of Another World & Felicia Gallant, One Life to Live, Winning a Daytime Emmy & More

Currently, daytime fans are getting to see one of the most beloved actress in the history of the soap genre, Linda Dano, on NBC’s Days of our Lives in the role of the villainess Vivian Alamain.

Dano is taking on the part originally made soap-famous by Louise Sorel, and last played by Robin Strasser. Now it’s Dano’s turn to bring her own style to the role as viewers have witnessed that Vivian has kidnapped Eli (Lamon Archey) and Lani’s (Sal Stowers) twins, thanks to Viv’s sidekick, Ivan (Ivan G’Vera), and the story and all the drama continues this week.

Photo: JPI

In a very special conversation on You Tube’s Michael Fairman Channel, Linda chats with Michael about the challenges she faced stepping into Vivian’s shoes, and working with the cast and crew at DAYS.

 

Linda also shares her sorrow over the heartbreaking cancellation, and then taping final episode of Another World, where she played her signature soap role of Felicia Gallant for 18 years.  During her run, Dano won the Outstanding Lead Actress Daytime Emmy in 1993 for Felicia’s battle with alcoholism, which as she reveals she is still stopped on the street about to this day.

Soap fans will recall that Dano is the only actress to crossover to all of the ABC daytime dramas when she returned to One Life to Live, (following her time on Another World), in the part of Gretel “Rae” Cummings, and we learned that Rae was the bio-mother of Skye Chandler, played by Robin Christopher.

Throughout her career, Dano also appeared on Guiding Light and As the World Turns, hosted the talk show, Attitudes and is known as one of the fashionable people in the business.  Linda formerly helped dress many of your favorite soap stars, wrote a book on having just the right look, and is always on the cutting edge of the fashion world.

As you will see, the conversation was poignant, humorous, and candid, but what else would you expect from the one and only Linda Dano?  You can watch the full chat below.
