Almost 30 years ago to the day, Doug Davidson (Paul) first stepped foot on the set of The Young and The Restless. He has been on the show longer than I have been alive.
All I have to say to that is: What an accomplishment! In the 30 years that Paul has been a resident of Genoa City, we have seen him just about do it all.
The official website for the show posted an article to recognize Doug's 30 years on the show. The article lists some of the great storylines from Paul's past such as his many affairs with the women of Genoa City and the many characters he has rescued from danger.
Paul's journey from teenage bad boy to resident hero has been an interesting one and I sure hope we see 30 more years from Doug. I found a great You Tube clip of a young Paul with his lover Cindy Lewis. In the clip, Cindy has taken a bullet for Paul and is in the hospital. The two talk about their future as Cindy dies in Paul's arms. It's classic Y&R and I love every minute of it. Congratulations Doug on 30 years at Y&R!
