DC #450: Sean Kanan Interview


Sean Kanan has brought the sexually-charged swagger of bad boy Deacon Sharpe back to daytime, only this time Big D isn’t taming Beverly Hills cougars on The Bold and the Beautiful. He’s too busy sexing and scheming his way through Genoa City on B&B’s sister sudser The Young and the Restless!

Daytime Confidential’s Jamey finally met one of his favorite actors face-to-face on the red carpet at last weekend’s 36th Annunal Daytime Emmy Awards and invited him on for today’s episode of the podcast. Tune in to hear Kanan share his thoughts on this year’s show, and what it’s been like recreating his crazy, raunchy, dirty character on a second soap. You’ll hear how Kanan was able to pick back up where he left off with B&B leading lady Adrienne Frantz (Amber) and how being paid to make out with his pal Thad Luckinbill’s (JT) very pregnant wife Amelia Heinle (Victoria) makes him blush.

Kanan also praises his former boss Brad Bell, who last Sunday accepted B&B’s historic first win for Outstanding Drama Series, and reveals how Bell’s speech being cut out of the broadcast made him feel. Kanan also shares what it was like to finally meet his new boss, Brad’s sister-in-law, Maria Arena Bell at the Daytime Emmys.

Kanan also weighs in on the recent tragic passing of DJ AM, and reveals to Jamey and Luke just how much his own sobriety and second chance in daytime, provided by uber producer Paul Rauch, means to him.

    Thanks for the interview. It was great! I hope Y&R do know what an excellent actor they have there and give him a long-term contract. He deserves it!

    Checked out his website and was surprised when I saw in his acting reel to find a scene between him and Sharon Case in it.

    Came back from VaKay so catching up w/my podcast and lo and behold one of my favs …

    Huge fan huge fan
    this is a character that I should for all intents / purps hate…but I just don’t no matter what despicable thing he does I still like him and make excuses and tune in to see what he does next and to “see him”…I think he’s attractive and eats my screen with this sexual prowess

    Right Sean you are doing your job when you evoke emotions especially ones I shouldn’t have….so glad you’re back you’re rocking my world…Here are some of your fans we hang out here to see you work your stuff here is an eppy we enjoyed your scene with Katherine Chancellor…
