HomeTVAll My ChildrenHow Being Fired From Y&R Helped Twilight Hunk Cam Gigandet’s Career Jamey Giddens December 5, 2008 All My Children, The O.C., The Young and The Restless 6 Comments Twilight star Cam Gigandet revealed in the December issue of Men’s Health, on newsstands now, how being fired from the role of Daniel Romalotti on The Young and the Restless actually helped boost his confidence about his career. So much relies on your confidence. To be let go from a soap opera is the most embarassing confidence basher in the world. It’s like, ‘Oh, if I’m not good enough for that, I’m not good enough for anyting.’ So that was tough, but you learn that one of that stuff matters. You keep pushing forward. " Looks like everyone benefited from Gigandet’s firing. He was dismal as Daniel, couldn’t act his way off the back patio of Crimson Lights, but by the time he started landing gigs like the badass, surfer boy who bedded Coop (Mischa Barton) and then accidently killed her on The O.C., he was a totally different and vastly improved actor. Meanwhile, Y&R fans got the amazing Michael Graziadei as Daniel , who will no doubt soon be competing with Gigandet for film roles. 6 Responses DearCaptainObvious December 6, 2008 Here we go again with the soap bashing. If you get fired from a soap opera because your acting stinks that’s the lowest of the low, right? What a complete baboon. I’m sure the little stinker who played Eden and got fired will be saying some garbage like this real soon. http://www.DearCaptainObvious.com [Advice For Soap Operas] Log in to Reply ssjohn December 6, 2008 But isn’t it true???? i mean look we take ‘everyone’ *cough* Molly Burnet *cough* so if you can’t even make it when a actress like Molly Burnet is on our screens, you know that has to hurt the ego… but then again Molly B is the future of DAYS, she is the second coming of soaps, the next DH after all….. Log in to Reply soapjunkie88 December 6, 2008 I think Gigandet was speaking about the business. And there, when you get fired from a soap opera, I do believe that it does not any good to your resume.

Did anyone see him in Never Back Down? The guy has some fight moves. It’s probably why he got Twilight too considering the fight scene in Twilight.
