The Young and the Restless star Joshua Morrow offered some fascinating insights into Nick and Chelsea’s relationship and how the secret about Christian’s paternity will affect them.
The Million Dollar Question
When will the truth about baby Christian come out, that he’s really Adam’s son, not Nick’s (Joshua Morrow)?
“Not for a long time, I hope,” Morrow told Michael Logan of TV Insider. “I never understand why people need such quick resolution. If they don’t think the Nick-Chelsea romance can work because she’s hanging on to this big secret, well, maybe they’ve never seen a soap before.”
Y&R Head Writer Sally Sussman went a step further in an interview with TV Insider’s Logan last year.
“Unless there is a compelling reason to have Nick learn the truth, I see no reason to go there,” she said.
Morrow added that the whatever the writers decide, he believes they have a master plan in mind and do what they do for a reason.
Chelsea Has Her Own Big Secret
Chelsea (Melissa Claire Egan)–and Victor (Eric Braeden)–are keeping the secret that Adam is Christian’s father for good reason. They both think Nick is the best person to raise him in Adam’s absence, especially because Adam asked him to look out for Connor, his brother, too.
“They are looking out for the welfare of that little boy. They both know the best thing is for Nick to raise him as his own, to look after him, to guide him through life,” Morrow said.
Come Home, Adam
Morrow expressed confidence that Adam would return one day.
“I do believe they’ll eventually bring Adam back,” he said. However, he said there’s no big rush. Well, for some of us there is, right Soap Cities readers?!
The other million dollar question is what actor would play Adam when/if he comes back?
“Obviously, Justin is too big for us now but I know he really loved this job and that he would love to come back and play Adam again. I know it,” Morrow said.
Rumors have been making the daytime community rounds that Michael Muhney is actively trying to come back to the show as Adam, but there’s been no official word on that hot topic!
