    Anyone who’s been watching “The Young and the Restless” as of late knows that Nicholas Newman’s life is about to be blown to smithereens. Not only has his father been tricking the love of his life into thinking she’s been seeing and speaking with her dead daughter, he’s on the verge of finding out that the very same woman he loves has been lying to him about the true paternity of his daughter! The drama is all pretty typical for Nick’s portrayer, Joshua Morrow — who’s been dealing with twisted Genoa City plots for nearly 20 years — but the drama he faces in his latest stint in the political drama thriller ‘Tentacle 8?’ Not so much! Soap Opera Network spoke with the actor about momentarily stepping away from his ‘Y&R’ craziness to film the exciting project, which is available on DVD in stores and on Amazon today. And we also got him to spill on all of the Victor (Eric Braeden), Sharon (Sharon Case) and Adam (formerly Michael Muhney) drama, too!

    Watching “Days of our Lives’” Sami (Alison Sweeney), Kate (Lauren Koslow) and Gabi (Camila Banus) supposedly wash their hands clean of Nick (Blake Berris) by tossing him in a river was delicious soap opera fun.

Or could it be a twin brother or an imposter using his face? And if it truly is Nick, just how far will he go to get back at the ladies for trying to off him? Soap Opera Network chatted with the character’s portrayer to find out!
