It’s been exactly one year since Argentinian actor Ignacio Serricchio first aired as “The Young and the Restless’” Alejandro “Alex” Chavez, and there are a few things fans of the show have learned about the actor in that year: He’s incredibly talented, he’s incredibly sexy, and he’s incredibly kind. But when Soap Opera Network recently caught up with him at one of his stand-up comedy performances (yes, he does stand-up comedy), we learned that he’s much more talented, sexy and kind than anyone even imagines. And we’ve got the quotes to prove it!

If you were already smitten with “The Young and the Restless” star Ignacio Serricchio (Alex Chavez), you’re about to love him even more. Soap Opera Network recently caught up with the busy actor, who spilled about the dangerous way he spends his free time, how he feels about representing Latinos in the media and his thoughts on a possible family member popping up in Genoa City!
First things first, Serricchio loves the thrill of adventure. Not only does the Argentinian-born actor love to rock climb and go camping, he also dives for lobsters! “During lobster season, I’m in the water almost every night,” he boasts, adding that even though you’re only allowed to catch the lobsters by hand, the occasional pinches are worth it. “They’re delicious! In the oven, ceviche style, on the grill, everything.”
On Monday, January 7, former “General Hospital” star Steve Burton (ex-Jason Morgan) will appear on CBS’ “The Talk” with a huge announcement, according to a promo released Friday by the network. Does that mean he will announce his joining “The Young and the Restless?” It’s definitely a possibility!
It was back in August when Daytime Confidential first reported that Burton would likely be departing “GH” after opting not to renew his contract with the series. Shortly afterward, Soap Opera Network began hearing rumblings over at CBS that former “GH” executive producer and current EP at “The Young and the Restless,” Jill Farren Phelps, was hoping to snag the star over to daytime’s most watched soap. Of course, Burton himself played down those rumors in an exit interview with Michael Logan a few days later. “Jill is one of my dearest friends. [Laughs] I’m never going to say never because, as soon as I do, I’ll be popping up over there!” said Burton at the time. Late last month, Logan reported that he was now hearing Burton was joining “Y&R” in a major role.
