Log in to Reply Divatude58 September 25, 2012 It sounds more like a military Civilian training program (office job). Log in to Reply soapbaby September 25, 2012 Best of luck in the career move and upcoming nuptials. I mean that seriously despite NEVER enjoying his work on GL and Y&R. I hope he bids acting “adieu.” Log in to Reply soapqueen1 September 26, 2012 Nope, ur wrong! Log in to Reply soapqueen1 September 26, 2012 Depends on the type of training he is taking, this one is for 13 months.

He was too good looking for anyone to believe that he hadn’t gotten laid by his mid-20’s. Any All-American girl would get his pants off in a New York minute. Stay safe and keep you head down! Log in to Reply pferrando September 26, 2012 Seems like a nice guy, but his story never caught on for me on Y and R. It’s always great having Tricia on so maybe this IS one they could recast in the FUTURE and explore the story with Ronan again. Just didn’t work. As always Tricia Cast was phenomenal. Love her. Can’t we get her and Traci back permanently. And I do wish him the best. Log in to Reply alstonboy4315 September 26, 2012 Cute guy. He was okay on GL, but never anything to write home about. I always did think that he had that “military look.” There’s just something about him. Him and Kyle Lowder………….. Good for him. Any man who chooses to fight for this country earns my respect. At least he’s not gonna have to worry about fighting for bit roles on TV shows. Sounds like a steady future for him and his family. Log in to Reply RebeccaJ September 26, 2012 He is such a looker! And I LOVED his upstanding, honorable character on Y&R until the writers totally ruined him by having him have an affair with Heather for no good reason….grrrrr! Can’t forgive them for that one! BTW, didn’t someone say he was already in Afghanistan? Log in to Reply soapqueen1 September 26, 2012 No, he is N o t in Afganistan, lol.
