Both music videos feature former "Days of our Lives" star James Scott (ex-EJ DiMera), who described his character as being "...a little bit more refined, more of a James Cagney type character." He noted, "there is a real elegance and beauty to this story. It has a much more romantic sensibility, much more fantasy... It is less intense in terms of the overt physical dynamic between the two characters, but I think that the underplay of the relationship between the two is actually much, much more intense.”]]> http://www.soapoperanetwork.com/2014/11/watch-roxannas-full-music-video-featuring-days-james-scott/feed 0 ‘Y&R’ Associate Producer Josh O’Connell Let Gohttp://www.soapoperanetwork.com/2014/11/yr-associate-producer-josh-oconnell-let-go http://www.soapoperanetwork.com/2014/11/yr-associate-producer-josh-oconnell-let-go#comments Tue, 25 Nov 2014 00:43:20 +0000 http://www.soapoperanetwork.com/?p=42328 CPT Holdings Inc.According to published reports, CBS' "The Young and the Restless" has let go Josh O'Connell, a longtime associate producer with the series.
