In mid-April, Stafford addressed fan concerns over her characters then recent onscreen disappearance. “I am still on the show,” she wrote in assurance to worried fans. “Just not working a lot.”
A rep for “Y&R” was unavailable for comment at press time.
“The Young and the Restless’” Eric Braeden has played Victor Newman for an outstanding 33 years, and one thing he has noticed in those three decades of hard work is that there actually is a magic formula to thank for his success and the success of the long-running sudser: Simply staying real.
