As The Young and the Restless begins its countdown to a little more than month away from its milestone 40th anniversary, the series is releasing sit-down interviews with members of the cast complete with clips and photos to take us down memory lane with the characters they have portrayed!

First up, Tracey E. Bregman’s Lauren Fenmore Baldwin!  Bregman discusses what happened when she was initially cast in the role, her awkwardness at having to sing with Michael Damian (Danny), and those legendary catfights with Beth Maitland as Traci Abbott and Kimberlin Brown as Sheila Carter.

In addition, Bregman talks about Lauren’s love life with Michael (Christian LeBlanc), and as she reveals, it was a conscious decision between she and LeBlanc to play their scenes with sexual overtones because they very much wanted to work together.

Watch the CBS.com clip after the jump! Let us know what your favorite Lauren storyline has been? And, what do you think of Lauren’s recent lip-lock with hottie Carmine (Marco Dapper)?  Weigh-in!

    She is an old Days favorite of mine when she played Donna Craig back in the late 1970s. Such a huge talent. One of DOOL biggest mistakes was loosing her during their 1980 revamping that saw the loss of so many beloved characters and actors. I feel Days never really fully recovered from that mindless decision. I did like a lot of performers and characters that had replaced them including the current cast but it still doesnt compare to those good old DAYS in Salem.

    I will say this… about Tracey Bregmen.

    She’s the lone – stand-alone… character (perhaps in all of soapdom)…who’s survived on her own… without family….ie: any siblings or parents? if so…. they certainly didn’t feature them…. course, i know about Jill… but…

    her marrying Michael, was the best thing that ever happened to her…

    Lauren was the only child of Neil Fenmore and Joanna Manning ( who was played by the same actress who is Julie Williams on Days) Her parents divorce when she was small and was raised by her father who spoiled her rotten. When he died she took over Fenmores Department Stores. It was MAB who in some kind state of crazy decided to make Jill her half sister. To this day I think that was a big mistake, and I am still hoping they will undo it somehow- and just make Jill a plain old Foster again.

    Not enough about Lauren and Sheila, one of the most interesting relationships in the show’s history.

    LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the fabu Tracey Bregman! Thank you for uploading this clip…. I have loved her since she first came on the scene and absolutely tormented Beth Maitland’s, ‘Tracy’. She’s always been such a natural on camera, so funny, so underrated. PLUS, the show FINALLY has her back on opening credits! Wonderful to see! Happy 30th Anniversary, Tracey, and Happy 40th Y&R!
