These days on The Young and the Restless you can always find some hot young couples, but what about the more mature couplings? They can be hot too, right? Well, in a new interview with Soap Opera Uncensored, the E-zine names, Y&R’s Tristan Rogers (Colin) and Jess Walton (Jill) this year’s “Sexiest Couple Alive”! And as they define it, “There’s nothing sexier than defying the status quo and finding love and sex in your prime.”
So how do Tristan and Jess, who have gotten a second chance at an on-screen romance as their characters of Colon and Jill feel about their sex appeal? Here are a few entertaining excerpts from their banter contained in the SOU interview!
Jess on if she ever thought she would be part of a romantic pairing at this time in her soap career: “No! I was so excited the first time around with Tristan and then I was so angry when it ended because it was so successful. What gets me about this relationship is: Jill was very sexually attracted to him at first and then we thought Cane died, and Colin was really wonderful during that time, and I think that’s when she fell in love with him with her heart and soul. Their sexual relationship is so strong because they really, really love each other. That’s what is behind it all. She finds him enormously funny and she loves the good in him. Add the sexual attraction, and it’s a really powerful.”
Tristan and Jess on what they find sexy in one another: Tristan: “Basically, when we’re working with each other, it’s fun loving. I’ve never been one to look at the script and say, ‘Oh, what’s the message or depth or truth of it.’ That’s not me at all. I want the entertainment value. I want people to tune in tomorrow and not run away to think about how they can be a better person. And that’s what I see in the both of us. There’s this desire to be fun with the script.” Jess: “I find that sexy about him, too. There’s always a twinkle in his eye. It’s that sense of humor, teasing playfulness.” Tristan: “I’m a clown!” Jess: “He’s a clown. He’s also an alpha male so the combination of those two things is irresistible.”
So, what do you think? Are Tristan and Jess one of the sexiest duos in soaps as Colin and Jill on Y&R? Are you digging their on-screen chemistry? Let us know!
