Joshua Morrow Looks Back as Y&R Turns 40


The Young and the RestlessJoshua Morrow (Nick) took a look back at his 20 years on the sudser with MSN entertaintment,as the number one sudser turns the big 4-0. The chat covered everything from his start on the soap in 1994, to the iconic storyline that killed off his on-screen daughter Cassie (Camryn Grimes) in 2005. Here's a snippet: 

Y&R’s got a new executive producer in charge.

I’m an athlete and I take sports very seriously. Jill [Farren Phelps] came in and gave us a very strong, commanding voice as a coach. Now, that style of leadership sometimes rubs people the wrong way. Sometimes people are kind of hanging on to the past but I think we really needed some serious leadership. Some kind of “Shut the eff up, get on your marks and let’s go!” She is no joke. I love her for it. I love [former executive producer and head writer] Maria [Arena Bell] too. I thought she was very nurturing. We got along very well. She did a great job. Even Jack Smith before that. They all really respected Nick and always kept me busy – there’s nothing else I could ask for. They all have different styles of leadership. I really like Jill and Josh Griffith has done a great job writing. I can give anybody the benefit of the doubt, but you come in here and do a good job. That’s all I ask for. I take my job very seriously. I want this show to continue and if it takes these two people to do it, then let’s go!

Jill’s brought some friends with her.

Yes, many.
