The actor told People:
I feel very loyal to The Young and the Restless, very beholden to Victor and very beholden to the audience who has supported us for all those years. I intend to stay as long as I can.
In particular, he's bonded with co-star Melody Thomas Scott (Nikki). Braeden shared:
She has put up with me and I sometimes am not the easiest guy to get along with, sometimes.
I love my life. I love my colleagues. I love my family and friends. So do I see myself retiring anytime soon? Hell no! My life has been enriched by having been introduced to so many things.
