HomeTVDays of Our LivesDid Barbara Bloom Want Stephen Nichols as Y&R’s Tucker From the Start? Luke Kerr December 18, 2009 Days of Our Lives, General Hospital, The Young and The Restless 5 Comments TV Guide Canada’s Nelson Branco has more details on Stephen Nichols’ upcoming arrival on The Young and the Restless as Tucker Mccall in the latest Suds Report. Nichols began taping his scenes on Dec. 17. The former DAYS and GH superstar is set to debut in Genoa City on Jan. 27. So why the quickie switch? Suds Report has learned from a source that, “There was no behind-the-scenes problem with William. Barbara Bloom wanted Stephen for the role from the start — and in the end, she got her way.” Photo by PR Photos 5 Responses mikelyons December 18, 2009 I never know whether to laugh or cry when I see this picture of Barbara Bloom. But I am glad that Stephen Nichols is heading to Y&R even though I didn’t mind William Russ’ "Tucker". Stephen always made me pay attention to GH when he was on with Mary Beth Evans. His Stefan was just too sexy… Here’s hoping his "Tucker" is just as smoldering.

I would have gussed it was Matthew or Drake. http://daytimeconfidential.com/2009/04/which-ousted-days-vet-passed-onthe-young-and-the-restless#comments Log in to Reply Joan76 December 19, 2009 Which one is Barbra Bloom?
