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 [Marco Dapper], 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.”
Today marks one full year since the heart-wrenching death of “The Young and the Restless’” Jeanne Cooper, the much-loved and celebrated actress who played Katherine Chancellor for 40 years. During the final weeks of her life, her son, Corbin Bernsen, kept fans updated on his mother’s deteriorating status via honest and touching social media posts, and he’s once again championing the woman the daytime community misses so much — this time, with a candid interview with TV Guide.
