One of the true fan favorites of daytime drama, The Young and the Restless Daniel Goddard (Cane Ashby), posted a picture of himself on social media on Tuesday, while updating his followers on his broken elbow.

Goddard is scheduled to undergo surgery tomorrow after injuring himself late last week during a fight scene, while taping an upcoming episode of the number one soap opera.

But as the actor related, it’s not been an easy road for him thus far. Today, Daniel shared an injury update his facebook page: “My elbow is still broken and hasn’t been fixed yet because it’s still too swollen to operate… The break is still bleeding out as you can see by the color of my fingers… but I’m at The Young and the Restless today filming because we have so much to do for our huge November sweeps story lines! I have surgery scheduled for tomorrow morning where they will screw and wire my elbow back together.  I wanted to say thank you! You have been such a source of comfort, support and strength over the last few days and I truly and dearly appreciate every single message wishing me well. You have no idea know how much it means to me. I love you!”

Hopefully Wednesday, Daniel will be able to have his surgery to put his elbow back together!  What did you think of Goddard’s heartfelt message?  Share your continued well-wishes for Daniel in the comment section below.

      Oh Hell no he didn’t! While he may not have raped Avery, he snapped and tried to rape Cane. But he was not Abel.
      Cane may have a broken elbow, but Joe is in a coma.

      Oh no he didn’t! Joe didn’t rape Avery, but he snapped and tried to rape Cane.

      Oh no he didn’t!! Joe flipped out and attempted to what he was accused of by Avery on Cane. But he was not Abel.
      In coma.

    Like the bloke and all but why is he making such a big deal about a broken elbow?
    I am going to start calling him Camille.

      Since he has to have surgery I would say it is a big deal.

    I wish him the best of luck!! In the words of the orthopedic surgeon who operated on my shattered elbow 3 years ago, “Elbows are a bitch!” (Please don’t anyone take offense; I’m merely quoting him.) It will be awhile before Mr. Goddard is tying his own neckties again. Three years later I still can’t straighten my arm completely, but I’ve regained most of my range of motion.

    I’m not a doctor, I don’t even play one on TV (ancient Peter Bergman joke), but based on my personal experience this may be an injury from which a full recovery is impossible.

The Young and the Restless Pushes Back Production Restart Date Due To COVID-19 Spike

As the coronavirus pandemic is spiking again in LA County and California, CBS’ Daytime-Emmy winning The Young and the Restless has now postponed their previously announced goal of a production restart of July 6th to now eyeing July 13th as their new start date.  Deadline first broke the news.

But all of this could change, given that California Governor Gavin Newsom and LA County health officials have come forward that the spike of COVID-19 cases, test positivity and hospitalization rates in California have given the Governor serious concerns, so much so that now he is tightening restrictions again for the state to include: once again shutting down indoor dining, closing all bars, indoor movie theatres, as well as all beaches being closed for the 4th of July holiday.

Just last Friday, Y&R picked up the Daytime Emmy for Outstanding Drama Series at the 47th annual Daytime Emmy Awards. 

General Hospital is still eyeing a mid-July production restart, The Bold and the Beautiful had gone back into production and Days of our Lives still has episodes banked into the fall, and at this time have not yet announced plans to restart production.

So, do you think Y&R can safely go back into production in a few weeks given the COVID-19 uptick in new cases? Comment below,

GH’s Michael Easton Posts “Ask Me Anything” Part Two

Over the coronavirus pandemic General Hospital star Michael Easton (Hamilton Finn) has been answering several fans questions posted to him in a series of posts on his official Facebook page. 

This week, Easton posted part two of his “Ask Me Anything”, and the fan favorite said he he will do his best to get through everyone’s questions and thanked those who made donations to America Health Care Workers and food banks during COVID-19.

In part two; questions ranged from: his connection with his on-screen brother played by Josh Swickard, if he would ever consider a return to Days of our Lives to reprise the role of Tanner Scofield (his first soap role), what is his favorite part of playing Hamilton Finn, and the casting of his on-screen daughter Violet played by Jophielle Love and more.

One question posed to Easton revolved around the just completed Daytime Emmys, when he was asked: “How many times have you submitted yourself for the Emmys? Some actors seem to put a real emphasis on being nominated but you don’t seem to care that much?”

Michael responded: “I’m pacing myself. I’ve maybe submitted three or four times in twenty years. It’s a lovely honor but not something I focus on. Everyday I try to give the best, most truthful performance I can and as I long as I can do that…I live with myself.”

Make sure to “Like” Michael’s official Facebook page, if you have not already to see more of his “Ask Me Anything’s”

So, what are your hopes for Hamilton Finn when Michael returns to taping new episodes of General Hospital in the future?
