‘Y&R’s Eric Braeden Uncensored: Previous Regime Wanted to “Get Rid of Me”, Plus How Victor Takes Back Control

Eric Braeden has been portraying the iconic Victor Newman on “The Young and the Restless” for more than 42 years, garnering a Daytime Emmy Award for his portrayal in 1998 in the category of Outstanding Lead Actor. With that many years under his belt and eight nominations overall in the same category, along with countless other accolades, the daytime legend commands respect without uttering a word. In fact, Braeden went viral last August when Twitter user @chris_notcapn tweeted, “If you’re a millennial and know who this white man is, you spent a lot of time with your grandmother as a child.” So, it’s disheartening to learn that there was a time not too long ago in which Braeden could’ve stopped playing the character had the show’s previous regime gotten its way.

We’re about to hit the two-year mark on the pandemic and news from around the world is, well, not good. Victor’s life on The Young and the Restless may be a constant dramatic mess (often of his own making), but we’d be lying if we didn’t say that sometimes dealing with Ashland’s lies seems easier than handling real life.
