With the role of Adam Newman vacated after the departure of Justin Hartley, who now stars on NBC’s This Is Us, many fans of The Young and the Restless are hoping their voices are heard by the powers-that-be and that the series will consider bringing back Michael Muhney to the role, a part he played till 2014 till he was let-go from the show.
A petition had been circulated that Muhney was able to view and he was touched by the response, so he took to his Twitter account to give thanks to all those supporting him, and he also indicated he has had some time for self-reflection.
Muhney expressed: “I just read through all the comments in this petition. Brought tears to my eyes. So blown away by people’s passion for my work. #Humbling. Just feel like all I ever want to say is ‘thank you.’ For being positive, for encouragement, for your passion & enthusiasm for my craft. As long as people are kind, respectful, and positive I am always so spirited with the daily, weekly, monthly, year-after-year support. Tens of thousands of tweets I get from folks who enjoy my hard work. It really is so meaningful. If you were to ever just scroll through my mentions and continue reading back further & further you would see why I feel this way. It’s a rare thing to capture this much passion & support and encouragement from fans.I feel honored to have found a place in your hearts. Wow. Just Wow. I’ve been on a journey for several years. Moved away from the me that fought too many battles and covered up insecurities with ego. I just know that I like myself a lot more now than I did years ago. Had to let go of the hard-headedness. It’s a good feeling to let it go.”
