It’s been 23 years since Kristoff St. John stepped into the role of “The Young and the Restless’” Neil Winters, and since that time, the New York native has given countless interviews giving fans a detailed glimpse into the man he is when the cameras aren’t rolling.

Read on to get the scoop as well as a few teases regarding Neil’s life, too!
Sometimes when one comments about a specific topic or thing on social media websites such as Facebook or Twitter, things they say can get misconstrued by others. This was the case last night when "General Hospital's" Sean Kanan (AJ Quartermaine) tweeted, "Such an honor to be a part of this iconic piece of American television history. Thanks @valentinifrank for everything," following yesterday's 13,000th episode cake cutting party.

Last night marked the 66th annual Directors Guild of America Awards Dinner at the Hyatt Regency Century Plaza in Los Angeles, but none of today's daytime drama directors received a nomination. Why? Because the "Daytime Serials" category was integrated into the "Dramatic Series" category following a June 22, 2013 DGA National Board meeting that voted on rule changes, which forces daytime and primetime dramas to compete against internet distributed dramas such as "House of Cards," which essentially leaves daytime itself shut out from ever receiving a nomination as the dynamics of daytime is no where near the likes of 2013 nominees "Breaking Bad" (AMC), "Game of Thrones" (HBO), "Homeland" (Showtime), or even the aforementioned "House of Cards" (Netflix). "Bad" won the award for those wondering.
As previously reported, "Grey's Anatomy" star Chandra Wilson (Dr. Miranda Bailey) will appear on the Wednesday, January 29 episode of ABC's "General Hospital" as Tina Estrada, a patient of Dr. Kevin Collins (Jon Lindstrom), who goes to General Hospital for her regularly scheduled appointment. According to the network, Tina comes face to face with an unfamiliar nurse in the episode and demands to know why HE is in her doctor’s office. The "nurse" is actually reformed serial killer Franco (Roger Howarth), as noted in the picture above, who is hiding out from the police after a warrant is issued for his arrest in the disappearance and possible murder of Carly Corinthos Jacks (Laura Wright).
