Ever heard the rumor that working on a soap opera is one of the toughest acting jobs out there? Well, according to some industry insiders like “Days of our Lives'” casting director Marnie Saitta, “The Bold and the Beautiful’s” John McCook (Eric Forrester), “General Hospital’s” Anthony Geary, and “The Young and the Restless’” Max Ehrich (Fenmore Baldwin), daytime gigs are some of the toughest jobs to land — and keep, as well!
On Tuesday, June 24, Genoa City said hello again to a familiar name with a new face. On that day, daytime newcomer Burgess Jenkins took over the role of Billy Abbott on CBS' "The Young and the Restless" from David Tom, who himself succeeded three-time Daytime Emmy Award winning actor Billy Miller in the popular role, but how did Jenkins land himself on daytime's most watched drama series? "My management called me and they were talking to me about this role, and when they sent me the breakdown on the character, I just fell in love. I absolutely fell in love with Billy," said Jenkins when Soap Opera Network spoke with the actor in the gifting suite at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, CA as part of Daytime Emmy weekend. "There's not a whole lot of characters you see that are so multi-layered and interesting that way. I had a chance to meet with the producers to discuss the character and the show, and it just seemed like a good fit," added Jenkins, who noted that the conversation he had with producers on the character helped give him something to dig into before the cameras began to roll.

Nominated for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series for his portrayal of Michael Baldwin on CBS' "The Young and the Restless" for the fifth time, Christian Jules Le Blanc, a native of Fort Bragg, North Carolina, goes into tonight's ceremony with a career total of nine nominations under his belt (the aforementioned five for lead actor and four for supporting actor) with three wins in 2005, 2007 and 2009 in the lead category.
Even though “The Bold and the Beautiful’s” Heather Tom (Katie Logan) has previously been nominated for 15 Daytime Emmy awards and is the only person in history to have won in all three actor categories (three times in the Outstanding Younger Actress category, once in the Outstanding Supporting Actress category and twice in the Outstanding Lead Actress category), her recent Lead Actress nomination still feels special.
The term “whirlwind” doesn’t even come close to describing the recent life of “The Bold and the Beautiful’s” Kim Matula (Hope Logan). In addition to accepting “B&B’s” ninth consecutive Golden Nymph award at the International TV Audience Awards during the 54th Monte Carlo Television Festival in Monte Carlo this month and just finishing filming on location in Paris, France, she’s still basking in the recent news that she officially received her very first Emmy nomination!
Hallmark’s beloved talk show “Home & Family” has featured so many soap star guests, it’s a wonder it’s not up for Outstanding Drama Series in this year’s Daytime Emmy race. With everyone from “Days of our Lives’” Deidre Hall (Marlena Evans) to the “Young and the Restless’” Peter Bergman (Jack Abbott) and Eric Braeden (Victor Newman) dropping by, it’s pretty much par-for-par with Salem, Port Charles and Genoa City. Though, as former “Entertainment Tonight” personality and current “Home & Family” co-host Mark Steines would tell you, the set is anything but something you’d see on a typical daytime drama.
“The Young and the Restless’” Amelia Heinle (Victoria Newman) is celebrating her first ever Emmy nomination as well as an exciting storyline involving Sean Carrigan’s Stitch, but that didn’t prevent her from opening up about a slew of other topics when reporters chatted with the actress shortly after she received the news that she’d officially be in this year’s Emmy race. The actress had no qualms about discussing the emotional year “Y&R” has experienced, what it was like working with Billy Miller (ex-Billy Abbott), her obsession with Tristan Rogers (Colin Atkinson) and more.
