Y&R's Michael Muhney Interview: Adam Takes A Game-Changing Bullet … But Who Has His Heart?

Intense, thought-provoking, and an actor with stunning emotional depth, are just some of the adjectives used by soap fans and pundits when they refer to The Young and the Restless resident black sheep of the Newman family, Michael Muhney!

As Adam Newman, who has seen some very dark days, and who has perpetrated some very dark misdeeds to many a resident in Genoa City, Muhney had made the role of Adam one-of-a-kind on the soap landscape.  Recently on key episodes, during Y&R’s 40th anniversary just a week and half ago, Adam took a bullet meant for his biggest adversary, his own father Victor (Eric Braeden)!  Now as he attempts to recover from the horrific chain of events, has it changed the way father/son will see each other moving forward?

And if that is not enough drama and tension to fill the room, Chelsea (Melissa Claire Egan) is pregnant with Adam’s baby!  Will Adam finally know the truth that he is the baby daddy?  And, then there’s complicated relationship between Adam and Sharon Newman. (Sharon Case)  Does Sharon have Adam’s heart?  To try to find out the answers to these questions, we caught up with Michael Muhney at Y&R’s 40th anniversary on set celebration at CBS last week, to get his take on the latest developments in Mr. Adam’s life!

What did you think when you found that Adam was going to get shot and jump in front of a bullet meant for his father Victor?

MICHAEL:  Oh, I knew about this for many, many months.  I was excited about it, but I was more excited to see what people’s reactions would be than concerned with my own reaction, knowing the construct of where it was going to go, and what it’s going to lead to moving forword.   I thought, what a great catalyst to setting in the biggest game-changer of all, between the dynamics of a lot of the inter-relationships of the Newman family.

In a recent On-Air On-Soaps interview with Y&R head writer Josh Griffith, and executive producer Jill Farren Phelps, Josh revealed that when he took over the writing chores he thought that one of the characters that needed to be reset was Adam.  And, that in recent times, Adam had gotten away from the central core of who he is.  Would you agree with that? 

MICHAEL:  It’s an interesting way to look at it, that Adam is being reset.  And, I do agree with them, but I think Bill Bell Sr. (Creator, Y&R) never intended a Newman to go in the direction that Adam did go.  What he would have wanted was to bring Adam back in and reset a couple of situations.  It was Bill’s idea of this child born on-screen decades ago.  People have told me there was a method to his madness.  There is a reason that he was being named Victor Jr., so he can grow up far away from Genoa City and then come back.

Daytime fans always take note of your incredibly deep and complex performances.  Do you feel that the role of Adam is one of those roles that comes around once in a lifetime for an actor?

MICHAEL:  I take what I do very seriously and I have tremendously large shoes to fill, with what my character was ever intended to be, what is being reset, where it’s all headed, and what’s in store.  Adam the character is such a catalytic, driving, central character… and he is Victor 2.0!   I purposely say that because he is not a Victor Jr. incarnation.  He is not “Jr.” who is under a shadow.  He is a different twist with an upgraded version.  He is not exactly the same, but very similar.  But when Bill Bell constructed this, I am the lucky sonofabitch that happened to fall into that role, and get my hands dirty with it now, because where it sits … the sky is truly the limit!

The big debate: Which woman does Adam truly love?  Is it Sharon?  Or, is it Chelsea?  I don’t even know anymore! (Laughs)

MICHAEL:  I don’t have a political answer.  I like listening to you have an argument about it with yourself right now.  I am finding that the rhetoric is: “No, it’s Sharon!”  “No, it’s Chelsea.” “No, it’s neither.” “No, and it’s someone he has yet to meet.”  “No, it’s someone from his past!”   It’s this back and forth.  And if anyone has noticed since I have been on the show, I like to play as much ambiguity in scenes as possible, because then you keep the audience guessing.  And, because we work in a medium where it’s not 22 episodes a year but 250, the show doesn’t have a closure.  It’s in a constant state of falling forward.  The more ambiguous it is, it leaves hints at things, and you can keep an audience rooting for one direction, or questioning another direction, and thinking, “Could it be this?”  So I know where things are headed, obviously.  I know where Adam will be in six months and in twelve months, but I can’t play that, and I can’t tell you. (Laughs)

So you would say down the line, there is going to continue to be riveting story for Adam?

Photo Credit: Getty Images

MICHAEL:  Adam is going to go on a journey of self that I am not even sure he is aware he is going on.  It’s not this quest that he is going to look inside of himself.  There is no introspection.  Adam is the kind of guy who has resolved certain things.  The seeds have already been planted over a month ago when Adam said to Sharon, “Maybe, I am just not cut out for love.  Maybe, it’s not meant for some people.”  So maybe Adam emotionally shuts off and builds up walls, because he is truly that army of one.  Adam knows the one constant in his life is just him.  In some ways, he is so broken and so lost.  Adam is enough of an intellectual, and he is cerebral, so he is not an idiot like other characters can be who keep beating their heads against a wall and keeps trying the same thing. The definition of insanity is doing the same over and over again, and expecting a different result.  So for Adam it’s: “I need to stop attempting to do something, because I am not going to get a different result.  It’s going to be the same thing.  So why don’t I just stop? It’s madness, and I will just build a wall.”  But what happens when you have a character like this in drama that builds emotional walls … then it becomes so compelling to watch!

What will Adam do if he learns he is to be a father?  Would he embrace and love his child?

Photo Credit: Kathy Hutchins

MICHAEL:  You have to figure that inevitably Adam will find out, and when/if that happens, does it turn his world upside down?  I think Adam truly has a ‘circle the wagons’ kind of mentality.  If there is trouble on the horizon, in a moment of panic and instinct and tragedy, and someone pulls a gun on his father, Adam thrusts himself in front of his dad.  So you have to imagine if Adam had a child?  He would be like, “Get behind me, kid.  All the rest of the world, getaway!”  That protectiveness, and the power of love, is going to be awesome!

So Y&R fans, what do you think about Adam taking a bullet for Victor? Do you think long term this will change their relationship?  Who is the women for Adam?  Sharon or Chelsea?  Do you think Adam would be a good father to his child?  Let us know your thoughts!

Sharon and Adam all the way. Best couple since Dru and Neil.Do I think it will change Victor and Adam. No! Victor has a nail brake and he turns on his kids in a drop of a hat. Victor will find a way to try to get the company from Jack. But with Adam around he is no sappy Nicholas or angry Victoria on a rant. Adam is Victor’s match! he is no dummy and he will do what he has to to protect now his baby from Chelsea she is horrific who gave away the first kid and Adam… Read more »

Sharon is Adam’s future. They are the next Nikki and Victor the writing is on the wall. Wish Sharon and Adam can get the baby from that Chelsea and have a fairytale blow out huge wedding this time. They never got the chance to love each other with all Victor did with framing Sharon for Skyes murder she did not do. Isn’t it time we get something . team Shadam all the way! Now can we have Drucilla back as Sharons best friend and Dylan as Sharons long lost brother please 🙂 🙂 🙂

OMG Sharon and Adam XOXO How can there ever be another. I have been there when Adam was bad and switched the baby and yes it was awful but it was Kismet when these two got together. I read some comments that Chelsea belongs with Adam and I just shake my head. They don’t see the love and passion these two Sharon and Adam has always had. When you meet “The One” when you meet them like Victor did long ago seeing Nikki on that stage. I remember showing my age now but that is what Sharon and Adam have… Read more »

SHARON SHARON SHARON only for Adam! I think it is proven this it the next super power couple for the future of Y&R. I never get enough of these two can’t staying away from each other. They are partners in all areas. Good work writing team. now figure out how to get that baby from Chelsea and give it to Sharon and Adam to raise.

Adam & Sharon are soul mates. I have so much respect for Michael Muhney. He is an incredibly good actor. I’ve been watching Y&R since the first day it was on. I’m 62 now. I find I watch mostly for him and his scenes with Sharon. I was appalled at how the former writers were portraying her. I’m glad that’s over.

Sharon and Adam. Loved them from the very start. The chemistry with these two is way better than it was with Nick and Sharon. You can tell Adam will love Sharon till the end of time. Sharon is Adams world and she has his heart. Mom Hope would love her . Hope would NEVER approve of Chelsea the con who has not changed. Just ask Dylan.

Exactly; she was upset with Adam for calling Sharon’s name when he woke up from the coma; but that loser forgot she was rolling up under Dylan a few weeks ago screaming his name. What, did she forget she is the one who hooked up with another drunken man at a bar while still married to Adam??? I hate when people try to compare what Hope did to what Chelsea is doing. Ummm Hope gave Victor a choice and it was Victor’s choice to stay out of Adam’s life. Chelsea is not even allowing Adam to know he has a… Read more »

I don’t know- I was kinda hoping for a Adam and Phyllis hook up. I think they could make a interesting couple — anyway it would make for an odd courtship considering these two characters can’t stand each other. I like the first guy who played Adam when he was with the first Heather. And during the time he was pretending to like Ashley to gaslight her I thought they could work as a couple. But if my only choice is between Sharon or Chelsea- then I agree with you Sharon is the only one for him.

I used to love Adam and Sharon and then I fell in love with him and Chelsea. Then, in the recent months, Adam and Sharon had me hooked on their chemistry again. But then I see scenes between Adam and Chelsea where I find myself going “Awww!”. So I could say I’m Team Shadam or Team Chadam, but honestly I think I’m just plain Team Adam! lol.

Adam & Sharon are truly soul mates. They have seen the best & worst in each other, been to hell and back, ride or die, and survived extreme events, and still come out stronger than ever. This couple was tested in every way imaginable and always survives. It’s been almost 4 years for Shadam’s tumultuous journey. I believe this Chelsea is just an incubator for Adam’s firstborn. This woman has been pregnant 3 times in one year! Unbelievable! She’s a womb to provide an heir. That is all. I think Adam & Sharon will raise Baby Hope, who will be… Read more »

“Thought Provoking”

“Perpetuated”…..

the mind wanders… when Adam “reals”…. his screen time… is magnanimous….

He gives relevance to Victor…..

sensual… smoldering… ideal… the caveat… the writers have in MM…

He belongs with Sharon…

like many a fan…. Adam and Sharon… are the replacement to Victor and Nikki.

FACT.

when this happens…. dalliance with Nick. show some love and place to Victoria… she’s spot on…

helm the Newman Empire… with relish and tittilation…

Sharon and Adam. Sharon is the love of Adam’s life. She’s is best friend, lover, partner in business. They are the next Victor and Nikki of the future of Y&R. I fell in love with them as soon as the met up until now. They’ve been through hell and back with each other but still managed to be together inspite with everyone in GC being against them. They’re the darlings of Y&R.

I couldn’t agree more. Chelsea and Adam brought out the best in each other. They were so tender and sweet together. I definitely would hope Adam and Chelsea find there was back to each other especially if he can finally stop that stupid game with his evil father and hateful siblings. All of them treat Adam like dirt. I was surprised they called 911 when he was shot. Adam is no saint. He’s a rotten as his blood relatives. But, I saw some real humanity in him when he was with Chelsea. Sharon is nothing but trouble with a capital… Read more »

Adam was never more boring when with Chelsea!!! I thought OMG this is the end of the show during that time. The writer at that time made poor Sharon sleep with yuck Victor and Adam lost his mind and married the rebound Chelsea cuckoo who threw away her baby after the crime she did hired by Victor as a prostitute. Hope would roll in her grave. Chelsea is so far from the sweet girl Sharon is. Sharon loves Adam with all her heard. Sharon is the women for Adam 2.0. Why is Chelsea pregnant again?????

I like Adam and Chelsea together for the immediate future, but not forever, she’s not his soul mate. I think they could maybe give their marriage another shot for a while when he finds out about the baby.

I like Sharon and Adam together too, but I don’t think she loves him unconditionally. I don’t think Adam has met his true love/soul mate yet. It’s someone else.

On another note – am I the only one who can’t stand Victor? The way he treats Adam and Sharon is terrible.

Cassie, she isn’t my “women” (I think you meant “woman”)- she is a CHARACTER. The character behaves as she is WRITTEN by the WRITERS. Please get a grip. This is a fictional show. With fictional characters. If we were judging characters based on the past, Sharon would never give Adam the time of day after he lied to her about her child being dead. The characters are limited to how good/bad they are written.

Sharon is Adams women and Sharon man first. They still would of been together if it was not for Victor with his games and framed Sharon for murder she did not commit with Skye. Victor has her stashed some place. Victor burned Skys place with the evidence she was alive. What happened ? Victors character always loved Sharon as a daughter. The old writer messed that up.. Nikki was always nasty but Victor is out of control now! Sharon and Adam are the power couple of the show. They will get married again and have the chance they were supposed… Read more »

Adam did need reset. This first time I actually have liked Adam, MAB wrote him horribly but this will be growth for Adam. As for which woman I feel Chelsea has his heir, Sharon to much has happened between the characters. I feel the writers should approach Shadam more like GL did with RogerHolly…glimpses of happiness but never long term happiness and look how long GL milked that story and how it drove story of 20+ years. Sharon could never fully trust Adam as Holly could never fully trust Roger. It isn’t that neither woman didn’t love their “bad seed”… Read more »

Yes I also believe many are so jealous men love Sharon on the show because she loves with all her heart and she is not a evil person like Phyllis, and Chelsea and even that Chloe. Any trouble Sharon ever got in she was framed or she was going through horrific stuff like Cassies death alone and she never got help . Shameful the way Nick lied when Summer is Jacks and the way the Newmans treat Sharon. I had it with that abusiveness towards Sharon! Love Adam is her White Night 🙂

I have to say I was never interested in Adam until Chelsea came along. She invigorated him and made him human. She allowed me to see Michael Muhney as a viable romantic lead. Adam was happier, sexier, more fun and genuine with Chelsea. And he looked years younger! I think Chelsea is clearly the woman for him. The helped and healed each other. It was truly a beautiful romance that touched many hearts. Chelsea and Adam’s relationship has all these colors and grooves that make them fascinating to me. Even now that they have been separated and there’s such discord… Read more »

Spot on Leanna! Adam and Chelsea have so many storyline opportunities that can be explored. The future is limitless. Adam himself said he felt free and happier with Chelsea.

No Adam does not deserve Chelsea; the con woman who would keep his child from him and jump in the sack with the first drunken stranger she comes across. The man who deserves Chelsea is one of those guards at that prison she had Billy locked up in. Chelsea is a selfish cold trick who because of her years of screwing strange men for money has no soul.

I think so too. My theory is Adam planned to take the bullet for Victor. Victor was about to nail him for his part in the cover up of Stefanie Wheeler’s death. I think he figured out there was going to be an attempt on Victor’s life and either arranged it so he would be present when it happened so he could play the hero, or else got to the shooter and arranged for the actual shooting. If the guy can stick needles in his eyes to make himself blind- or take a child from her mother — or cause… Read more »

Sharon and Adam all the way! Although, when Adam finds out Chelsea is carrying his kid, who knows what Adam will do at that point! Will he dump Sharon and try and reconcile with Chelsea? I hope not. I hope he shares joint custody with Chelsea and Chelsea realizes that Sharon will be a good step-mother to her and Adam’s child. But that remains to be seen. It’s going to be interesting to see how the writer’s write this storyline.

Kind of sounds like there is no true love or love life in general. Personally I think Sharon sucks the life out of Adam. He’s much better on his own than with her. Chelsea made him fun and young, but that ship was blown to smithereens with the new writers. Army of one works for me.

I love Michael Muhney, he’s a true class act who truly has an undying love and affection for this medium and everything that’s included with it. I loved when Adam became soft, but I am loving him even more so now. As for who he belongs it, it’s either Chelsea or someone not on the canvas. The Adam+Sharon pairing is wrong on so many levels. I’d love to see Adam as a daddy, I think his mother’s side would truly come out and into play. Speaking of his mother, I hope that Hope makes some appearances this year. I love… Read more »

Sharon is Adams true love. I enjoy them in every scene they are in together and apart. I never liked anything Chelsea she even made watching Adam boring. She is a show killer character!

Aha. He is NOT her true love. Delusion, delusion, delusion.

And Chelsea is NOT a showkiller, that’s the Michaelson family and Maria Arena.

Muhney is a rare talent who can make a character like Adam, who should be hated by most, loved by most. I am a HUGE Adam fan and would love for him and Sharon to have a reunion Ejami style. I hated Sharon sexing up Victor but I hate the idea of Adam ever ever going back with that assclown Chelsea. She is too stupid for words. She really think the man should have given up his life in GC to follow her con behind to Paris, but she is still in town trying to keep him from knowing she… Read more »

Well said. Chelsea is too simple and plastic for him. I love seeing him interacting with Phillis, Dianne and the other ‘mad’ woman, and of cause Sharon. MM brought the intelligence and depth to Y&R which soaps normally lacking of.Whatever they do, please do not make him another lovey-dovy boring man. Playing house is not his forte. He needs to be dark-grey in the corporate world. I am not sure the terms like ‘Soulmate’ or ‘supper couple’ either.

I think Adam and Sharon will ALWAYS be in each other’s orbit, one way or the other; I think Chels is here for a while but not the main character. Its an ongoing soap so expect everything & anyhing, but Adam and Sharon will always bring forth the biggest bang … and that is the most important ingredient in soapland

When Victor & Adam made peace it brought tears to my eyes. I think they will get closer & Victor will help him get custody of his baby. Sharon is the one for him. She
was able to forgive him & love the good parts in him. I don’t think his ex. really loves
him . I think she loved his power. Once a con artist always a con artist.

IA Sharon is not Nikki, thank goodness. Nikki is a hypocritical snub who forgot where she came from. The pole rider should have more empathy for others knowing what her life was like but she is too busy judging anyone that is not Victor. Sharon has more love and compassion in her little finger than Nikki has in that drunken body of hers. IMO Adam and Sharon are NOT the new Nikki and Victor because frankly those two so called love story is nothing to imulate. Victor only shows Nikki love when she is kissing up to him; the minute… Read more »

I agree.. Adam and Sharon are a horrible couple…
Only starry eye teenagers could see them as a great love couple lol 🙂
And genuine super love couples are rare, and Sharon and Adam are not one….

(I do not want to have Adam and Victor being buddy buddy, either. That would make Adam dull and too changed./ into Victors little booboo boy lol .

Michael Muhney is the sole reason I watch Y&R. I think his character of Adam Newman is mesmerizing. He has chemistry with just about the entire cast. As for either Sharon or Chelsea, I like them both. The baby is a game changer, so we’ll see what happens when he finds out. Team Adam!

Totally he belongs with Chelsea I truly believe that with Chelsea it was the first time he really fell in love and for all these months his and Chelseas emotions have played out on screen even though they separated and were angry and cold to each other. They are alike in many ways….they both shut down when it comes to true love. That is why I believe theis beautiful love story needs to be explored to the fullest. When Chelsea recently visited him at the hospital you could feel the love they have for each other. Adam has been retarded… Read more »

It is Adam and Sharon all the way. Adam is so boring with Chelsea. She is the reason they had to reset the character of Adam. He had become unrecognizable. Sharon and Adam shine together and have such a deep love for one another. It is way past due to have these two come together. They just sizzle and pop and make everything they do together so captivating.

Sharon is definitely the love of Adam’s life, he may have love for Chelsea but it doesn’t compare to the way he feels about Sharon. Shadam is truly one of the most interesting couples, people who on paper probably shouldn’t be together but yet they are continuously drawn to eachother and when the chips are down they are always in the other’s corner. Plus the chemistry between Sharon Case & Michael Muhney is fantastic, it’s so palpable. I truly believe Sharon and Adam are soulmates and hope they reunite soon. I also look forward to how this will change Adam’s… Read more »

Thank you for the interview with Michael Muhney. He is my favorite actor on Y&R. He brings me to tears more than any other actor on the show. He shows so many emotions. I loved the scenes between him and Eric Braden. Both are a tremendous talent on the show and I have waited for years for Victor Sr to admit he loves Victor Jr. Excellent writing. Cannot wait to see them working together. Adams true soulmate is Sharon. Adam cannot function without Sharon in is life. He would give up everything for her. She loves him the same way.… Read more »

First let me say that I love Michael Muhney and the character of Adam portrays! And because couples/super couples are a huge part of soaps, let me just say that Adam’s heart is with as Sharon. They are a match made in Heaven! They have it all. As much as they have tried go move on from each other….they can’t. They are soulmates!

Adam told Sharon that he will always love her, but that he loved Chelsea MORE. He told Sharon that Chelsea was his best friend. MM said in his 40th opening that Sharon/Adam were toxic.

That’s good enough for me.

I think as an actor he may prefer the toxicity of Sharon and her deranged ways. But I think as a character, Chelsea is a much better fit.

He also said Chelsea brought out his mother’s side. It could totally be Chelsea vs Victor and that struggle for balance between ruthless and loving. Sharon doesn’t need to be in the picture imo.

Sharon and Adam belong together.. The only time I have ever found myself bored with Adam was while he was sitting on that ugly sofa with Chelsea. They have no chemistry and there’s no sustenance to the Chelsea character. They force her into too many situations with characters she has no connection with … A totally useless character IMO. It says a lot when the only way to make a character relevant is to constantly keep her pregnant. Adam doesn’t need a baby at this point because there’s still too much to explore with the Newman family relationships. MM and… Read more »

SHARON is the woman for Adam. I have been an Adam fan since MM took over the role and I have always supported Shadam in good times and bad. MM and SC are absolute magic together. It doesn’t matter if they are laughing, loving or fighting they have me on the edge of my seat with my eyes and ears glued to the TV. Their relationship is not superficial, juvenile or silly, it has layers and depth. When Adam was with Chelsea it was like he went from playing a man to a boy and went from being a dynamic… Read more »

Chelsea is the great LOVE of Adam’s life. They’ve redeemed each other, completely. Chelsea is having Adam’s baby, the first of his personal generation. Chelsea may have ‘once’ been a con. Adam’s been an ass more then once. They bring out the best in each other, friends, best friends, lovers, SOUL MATES. They did not jump into bed as other couples have in the past, they grew to love each other. Sharon will never match what Chelsea brings to Adam’s life, she has been a constant co-dependent to all of the Newman men. From Nick to Adam then to Victor,… Read more »

Adam and Adam alone is responsible for his goodness. He is after all Hope’s son and it was always there and Sharon was the very first person to see that goodness and tell Adam that he was more than the sum of his sins. That is why he fell in love with her because she reminded him of his mother, who believe in him. Sharon’s genteel spirit and kind nature are what have always appealed to Adam. His epiphany to actually follow the path to being better came when he was in Kansas after being blinded. That was his moment… Read more »

You forgot to mention MM stated during his #YR50 promo, Chelsea reminds Adam of his Mom ‘Hope’ and Adam and Sharon are toxic. IMO with Victor and Adam finally being in each other’s good graces, it would be in the best interest of them as father and son to continue bonding, especially with next Newman heir soon arriving. Sharon will have a man, just not a Newman.

Don’t twist it. Quote: Adam and Sharon are a tragic story to tell….they also find a contentment and happiness in each other..understanding that there’s this overlying toxicity that can be very dangerous. On Chelsea: There was a certain kind of fireworks, he needed Chelsea. He wanted to embrace more of his mother inside of him reject more of who his father was. He never once said Chelsea reminded him of his mother or was like his mother. If that’s what you’re reaching for then let’s go back to Shadam’s first Thanksgiving, where he told Sharon she reminded him of things… Read more »

Sharon is the woman that will always be in Adam’s heart .. Adam and Sharon have one of those relationships that should never have started but once it did there was no going back.. Adam and Sharon have put each other through hell, yet still love and trust each other more than anyone else… They have a beautiful friendship and know each other on a deeper level than anyone else ever will … It will always be Adam and Sharon for me….

Sharon may have been the woman for Adam in the past but that was before he met Chelsea. Sharon is a constant interruption and she is a flake. Adam needs a strong fiery woman and that’s Chelsea. Chelsea opened his eyes, that life doesn’t have to be so tortured. That he can have a future with true happiness with love and family. He allowed himself to live and feel all of that. Alas Adam is Adam’s own worst enemy so he’s now put the walls up because he blew it. I’m completely invested in Adam and Chelsea’s journey. They both… Read more »
