HomeTVThe Young and The RestlessY&R’s Stephen Nichols on Tucker vs. Kay: “I Am Going to Get Her” Jillian Bowe January 26, 2010 The Young and The Restless 12 Comments On Air On Soaps’ Michael Fairman dished with The Young and the Restless’ new catch (thank you Babs!) Stephen Nichols on what viewers can expect with Tucker’s plot for long lost mama Katherine Chancellor (Jeanne Cooper). MICHAEL: So we can safely assume that the conflict and confrontations between Katherine Chancellor and her son, Tucker, will continue? He is out for revenge on his mother! STEPHEN: Yes, he is out for revenge on his mother. I mean any kid that was put in an orphanage at birth, and whose mother put him there and never looked back, would feel resentful of that. So yeah, I am going to get her. Nichols also mentions if Tucker’s truly smitten with Genoa City’s own badgirl, Jill Abbott (Jess Walton). MICHAEL: Is Tucker a ‘playa’? STEPHEN: Oh yes, Tucker is a player. I can give you a little tidbit. One night, Tucker gets a knock at the door and it’s Jill, and he was not expecting her. Tucker is trying to get rid of her the whole time she is standing there, and at the end of the scene, once he finally gets her out of the door, a 20-something year old comes out of his bedroom. I say, “I am sorry this took so long.” And she says, “Less talk and more action, baby.” And I say, “Oh well, I like the sound of that.” And then we get to it…. and so… he is a ‘playa’! (Laughs) Damn, Jill can’t catch a break can she? Photo by PR Photos 12 Responses Jangiefan January 27, 2010 I’m looking forward to Stephen’s Tucker. Wasn’t to interested in this s/l until now but now that he’s taking over the role …. YAH! Log in to Reply momsmistchief January 27, 2010 Great interview. I listened to it and hearing Stephens voice makes me even more excited. What a great roll for him and I am sure he will do it justice. This story is so exciting and his addition makes it all the more so. Stephen rocks! Log in to Reply reggyreg January 27, 2010 When does Stephen first air on the show? Log in to Reply GossipGirl January 27, 2010 I keep imagining him whenever Tucker is on my screen. I’m looking forward to when he takes ove the role, which I believe is sometime this week. Log in to Reply Coffee_Junkie January 27, 2010 I know Stephen Nichols is a fantastic actor and nice eye candy yada yada yada….but William Russ was really starting to grow on me. He went against the grain. I’ll miss him. Russ’ last day was today in the US. Nichols starts tomorrow. Log in to Reply craigcp January 27, 2010 That’s what Y&R needs some new blood. I like it when they have corporate story lines, That’s when Y&R is at it’s best. Log in to Reply nOva January 27, 2010 Forty-something years is a long time to be storing up that kind of resentment for what a parent did at birth. Log in to Reply reggyreg January 27, 2010 Nova, You would be surprised how much pain a parent can inflict on their child. No matter how many years ago. Log in to Reply nOva January 27, 2010 @ Reg, I get that, but that’s typically when you grow up with the parent. In his case, he was given away. Now, unless he grew up with an exceptionally difficult life fraught with abuse and heartbreak there’s no way I’m going to buy him "getting back" at Kay, especially since this character is blindingly rich. If he was a younger character, like in the case of SMG’s Kendall Hart, I could believe it more. But there are great actors involved so I suppose it can’t be any worse than Y&R has done recently. Log in to Reply reggyreg January 27, 2010 Nova, I do agree with you that it would make sense to have so much pain and anger if the child was younger. I think he said he would see it differently if Katherine was poor when she had him but I think he does not understand why his rich mother would give him up. If anything you would think instead of lashing out at her and getting revenge he would have absolutely nothing to do with her. Log in to Reply Amtronic January 27, 2010 William Russ forever! This change sucks. Definitely not interested. Log in to Reply yojoromo4469 January 28, 2010 I want to give him a bar of soap and a razor and in comparison to William Russ, he SUCKS BIG TIME! He is a creepy looking character and does nothing for the story. Log in to Reply Leave a Reply Cancel Reply You must be logged in to post a comment.
