“The Young and the Restless’” Max Ehrich (Fenmore Baldwin) hasn’t been seen much in Genoa City these days, but the young actor is still very much a part of the CBS family — as computer hacker Hunter on the network’s primetime series, “Under the Dome!” Soap Opera Network caught up with Ehrich shortly after he returned from North Carolina (where “Dome” films) to get the scoop on his new nighttime alter ego and when fans can look forward to seeing him back at “Y&R!”

Anyone who’s been keeping up with season two of the action-packed science-fiction drama “Under the Dome” knows that its one of the most intriguing and entertaining shows on television at the moment — especially now that Ehrich’s Hunter is a part of the ensemble cast. If you’re not up to speed, the series (which is based on a Stephen King novel of the same name) follows a small town in Maine that is suddenly cut off from the rest of the world by a transparent, indestructible dome that zaps Internet access, mobile signals and radio communication. As government, military and media on the outside try to break down the dome, a small group of people inside attempt to figure out what the dome is, where it came from, and if it will go away. Ehrich’s Hunter is part of that small group.
