The Young and the Restless newcomer Michael Muhney (Adam 2.0) dishes with Advocate's Michael Fairman on the devious Adam's seduction of legal ace Rafe (Yani Gellman) and his thoughts on the "couple's" love scenes.
How did you feel the initial seduction scenes between Adam and Rafe were handled? We never saw them really kiss, and we saw the duo buttoning up their clothes after they have presumably had sex.
To be honest, I really liked the nuance, and I like the ‘Jimmy Stewart’ way in which they did that. What I mean by that is, I have always been a fan of Alfred Hitchcock films and older films. I have been a guy who likes the audience to fill in the blanks. To roughly quote a man who made a comment on the scenes, Listen. I am a gay man. I appreciated the way the scenes were done. Do you really want to see someone who is playing with someone’s emotions so innate, in a scene that is intimate? Someone is faking and someone is genuine, and that is almost really evil. Adam can go there. For me, the way it was done was tasteful, and it almost makes the audience wonder what exactly happened. You can create that in your head and try to interpret it by how the characters reacted afterwards.
