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!
"The Young and the Restless'" Max Ehrich (Fenmore Baldwin) — seen here with his girlfriend, actress Veronica Dunne — is usually quite stylish on the red carpet, and it was no exception for the 41st Annual Daytime Emmy Awards, where he was nominated as Outstanding Younger Actor.
After nearly a year in a coma, CBS' "The Young and the Restless" will once again say hello to Phyllis Summers when daytime veteran Gina Tognoni takes over the role beginning Monday, August 11, Soap Opera Network has learned exclusively. In our tribute to the character as she gets ready to wake up for the first time in the coming weeks, we take a look back at what Phyllis has missed while she was sleeping, including what former loves Jack Abbott (Peter Bergman) and Nicholas Newman (Joshua Morrow) have been up to since last seeing their favorite feisty redhead.
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.
In 2013, "Days of our Lives'" Chandler Massey (ex-Will Horton), "General Hospital's" Bryan Craig (Morgan Corinthos) and Chad Duell (Michael Corinthos) and "The Young and the Restless'" Max Ehrich (Fenmore Baldwin) and Daniel Polo (ex-Jamie Vernon) proved they were the outstanding younger gentlemen for their respective daytime dramas. They now compete with each other to find out which of them was the most Outstanding Younger Actor in a Daytime Drama Series during "The 41st Annual Daytime Emmy Awards."
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, the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences officially announced the nominees of the 41st annual Daytime Emmy Awards! The list of pre-noms in the categories for Outstanding Drama Series, Lead Actor and Actress, Supporting Actor and Actress, Younger Actor and Actress and more was whittled down to just a few final contenders who will compete for the coveted National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences Emmy award statuettes during the event that will be taking place on Sunday, June 22. Read on for the official list of nominees in the major categories!
Now that Billy Miller has played out his final scenes as “The Young and the Restless’” Billy Abbott (in a gripping finale in which both he and Michael Muhney’s Adam Newman careened off an icy road after a dramatic showdown regarding the hit and run death of Delia), former portrayer David Tom has stepped back into the role of Victoria’s (Amelia Heinle) hubby. Meanwhile, viewers were shocked to see Marco Dapper return as the very-much-alive Carmine Basco on Friday, January 31! So how did the returns of both actors rate?
