Daytime Icon Clocks 30 Years On Soap
Eric Braeden -- aka Victor Newman -- celebrates 30 years at The Young And The Restless.
Thursday, April 1, 2010 17:07 GMTLOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) Daytime soap icon Eric Braeden has been on the clock for 30 years and in the same dressing room.
This year marks Braedens 30th anniversary playing Victor Newman on The Young And The Restless.
Along with holding down the job since 1980, hes kept the very same dressing room since his first day on set.
Over the years hes moved couches, books, and exercise equipment into his space, but hes never added any personal touches like pictures or memorabilia.
Thats because Braeden thinks an actor should never get too comfortable in one place, as showbiz is mighty fleeting.
In fact, when he first took the role he only planned on staying for three months. He didnt like the schedule because it was so fast and stressful.
Three decades later and a near-permanent exit from the soap last year Braeden is still getting to know his character.
He adds, Theres always another woman lurking around [for Victor].
