  • DAYTIME EMMYS: ‘Y&R’s’ Max Ehrich Recalls ‘Emotionally Wrought’ Day That Earned Him a Nomination

    Most of the Daytime Emmy Award submission scenes feature extremely dramatic performances, but in the case of “The Young and the Restless’” Max Ehrich (Fenmore Baldwin), his nomination-earning material was enough to halt production of the sudser! He explains that while filming the scenes in which Fenmore was confused about whether or not he killed Carmine , he became so overwhelmed, they had to pause taping. “There were like four of five scenes, we filmed them back to back, and we had to stop a few times, because I was so emotionally wrought that I was forgetting stuff!” he says. “Fenmore has a mental break, because he’s contemplating whether he should go to confess or whether or not he should protect his father, and so it was a really intense filming process.”

    With over 20 years of daytime experience, you’d think that Amelia Heinle (Victoria Newman, “The Young and the Restless”) would have already been nominated at least once for a Daytime Emmy Award, but shockingly enough, this year’s nomination marks the first for the actress! And she says it’s all due to the incredibly emotional Delia’s death storyline she and her “Y&R” counterparts were given this year. “I don’t always put myself in the running, because I don’t always have ... but this year, I just thought, you know, I’m just going to put myself in there, so it feels really good, because my instincts, I guess, were right!” she says, adding that the impact of the storyline was felt by everybody right from the beginning. “The first day of shooting the Delia stuff, after she died, this weird sort of camaraderie came over all of us.

It almost felt like really happened. It was surreal, because it was the first time I’ve ever experienced this in all of my years of daytime, where the storyline actually felt pretty real.”
