Can Adam Be Redeemed on The Young and The Restless?

TV Guide Canada's Nelson Branco has a new interview up with Michael Muhney, where the question was posed, can the character of Adam be redeemed on The Young and the Restless?


TVG: Do you think Adam is irredeemable? Are you worried that Y&R may have written Adam into a corner?

MM: The lead characters in some of my favourite films — from Scarface to Goodfellas and Citizen Kane — are truly corrupt, warped and manipulative minds, but at the same time, as a viewer, you find that you are cheering for them because perhaps even worse people surround them. Sometimes you have to torture an audience so they can feel the character’s torture. If the audience can understand their plight, then they will go on the ride with you. That doesn’t mean characters like Adam are necessarily redeemable. I don’t think redemption is necessarily necessary for Adam. I have no idea where the writing is headed, but at this juncture, I have to play Adam as such. Adam just needs to find his Rosebud, so to speak.
