Ex-Y&R Star Kevin Schmidt on Soap's Future: "A Lot of Quick Two-Page Scenes, Less Screen Time For Dynasty Leads"

Publish date:

Exiting The Young and the Restless starKevin Schmidt is continuing to speak out about the way he feels the CBS soap conducts business. The soon-to-be ex-Noah Newman gave a couple of bombshell quotes, during an interview with Soap Opera Fan.


On how he felt when he learned the soap was again recasting Noah:

I was hurt at first. The producers have a way of dropping bombs on the actors instead of being transparent with their decision making. The last episode I worked we bid farewell to, Eileen Davidson [Ashley Abbott McCall], which took the wind out of everyone’s sails. So much talent on Stage 41 and 43.

On what he feels the future of Y&R will look like:

A lot of quick two-page scenes and less screen time for the dynasty leads.

Do you worry Schmidt's fears for the "new" Y&R will become a reality? Sound off in the comments!
