The Young and the Restless' Victor Newman (Eric Braeden) just can't get out of the dog house these days. The Genoa City billionaire is being grilled by the FDA. He stayed mum on his son's hit-and-run killling of Delia Abbott and hired his dead granddaughter's doppleganger to haunt his ex-wife/-daughter-in-law. Just what is going on? Braeden spoke with TV Guide Magazine's Michael Logan to give his take on what's up with his alter ego.
TV Guide Magazine: Let's talk Victor Newman. He's always up to no good but I can't recall a time when he was in so much potential hot water for so many reasons — from keeping quiet about Adam killing Delia to being investigated by the FDA to hiring Fake Cassie. The writers are really piling it on! What's up with that?
Braeden: I don't know. It may presage a kind of downfall for Victor and then a return from the ashes. I never want to know what's going to happen ahead of time. That's no temptation for me. But I do feel the writers want to knock him off his pedestal. But, in Victor's mind, it's all totally justified. He rationalizes all of it.
Don't feel too sad, kids. The talented actor is returning to The Bold and the Beautiful to reprise the mega popular role of Deacon Sharpe! Here's an excerpt from Logan's exclusive with Kanan:
"I was utterly thrilled to be brought back to GH for the 50th anniversary and really enjoyed working with [executive producer] Frank Valentini, but I was not over the moon about the writing," Kanan says. "Doing stories about panic attacks and relish was not what I thought I'd signed up for. I feel I brought everything I could to the character yet it was obvious they weren't going to give me a great love story, which I found very disappointing." READ MORE
