Y&R's Michael Muhney on Adam's dirty deeds and lovin' Sharon!

Oh what a tangled web he weaves! Yes, Adam on Y&R is truly the guy that everyone is waiting to see how and when he might and will get his comeuppance.  Well, in the meantime Adam’s portrayer, Michael Muhney spoke with SOAPnet.com for an enlightening interview and in particular his thoughts on Adam’s “quickie” marriage to Sharon.  Now, does Adam truly love this gal?  You know he wants to stick it to Nick Newman.   Here’s what Muhney had to say:

“I spoke with [head writer] Maria Arena Bell about this early on, before the storyline started playing out, and she and I both were on the same page that in order for this story truly to work, whatever end the story has, he has to truly, truly be in love with her. Because if he’s manipulating her in any way, or it’s a ruse, then I think he is about as cruel as a human being can be (if you would even classify someone that cruel as a human being).

“Initially he took an interest in her because he saw such a bright light in her — someone who had gone through something so tragic, and of course, he felt so guilty. He wasn’t hanging around her to protect himself or to cover his tracks or to monitor her … that makes no sense. The best thing to do — there’s no witnesses, there’s nobody who knows anything — just get out of dodge. But he put himself in harm’s way because he was so intrigued by her and so drawn to her. And there’s a strong correlation to [Adam’s mother] Hope: someone who’s a very good mother, who’s very passive, sweet, understanding, kind, and forgiving — but also a very strong person underneath it all. He sees the strength in Sharon.”

“It’s funny to hear people say: ‘Oh, they got married after a month.’ I don’t understand when people started looking at their calendars, but they had been talking and having wine and opening up to one another one-on-one a month before Halloween came around. And then there was a significant amount of build-up in the relationship to Thanksgiving, and then, of course, to Christmas. Over the months, he has done the one thing that I think he feels he would never fall victim to, and that’s give in to his emotion. He’s fallen deeply in love with her. He has found that there’s a by-product to this — that it gets under Nick’s skin and Jack’s skin, to say the very least. There’s a bonus there, but that’s certainly not the reason to be with her. If that was his motive, he could have easily, in my opinion, just continued to date her, and it would have infuriated everyone. But to get married takes it to a level where it’s just not a game anymore. Like he said on New Year’s Eve when he and Sharon were laying in the hospital bed — he loves her enough for the both of them. He understands and embraces the fact that she has a past, and a history with Nick, but he believes he can be a part of her future. I think he’s not delusional to believe that, because after all, they’re married now!”

Daytime fans remember him fondly as the son of Jesse (Darnell Williams) and Angie Hubbard (Debbi Morgan), Frankie, on All My Children.  And now, actor Cornelius Smith Jr., is set to join a major limited series based on the acclaimed nonfiction book by Pulitzer Prize-winning author Sheri Fink, about the the first five days following Hurricane Katrina made landfall entitled Five Days at Memorial.

Written by John Ridley and Carlton Cruse, Smith will play a doctor, (something he is very familiar with playing since Frankie Hubbard was a doctor in Pine Valley!) named Dr. Bryant King, an internist and one of the few doctors of color at the hospital, who finds himself very much in the middle of the crisis.  He will headline the show alongside Vera Farmiga and Adepero Oduye.
