Y&R's newly-christened Mackenzie Browning recently chatted with Michael Fairmain for Advocate.com, clearing up speculation about her sexuality, and offering a sneek peak at what's in store for the character, who this week returned to Genoa City, just in time to learn her grandmother Katherine "Duchess" Chancellor (Jeanne Cooper) is still alive, and the love of her life Billy (Billy Miller) is now a soon-to-be-married baby daddy. Ford also shares what her buddy, fellow Y&R star Greg Rikaart gave The L Word alum about the wacky world of daytime dramas.
Being a sudser rookie, did your pal Greg Rikaart give you any soapy advice?
He said “Keep going! In soaps every day is a new day.” I have gotten one piece of advice from the cast. They told me it’s going to be one of the hardest jobs I’ve ever had, especially the first little while till I hit my stride. Once I hit my stride it will be fine."
