Check out this new interview with “Y&R’s” Phillip III, Thom Bierdz now online. The cool new soap site, Soaps-Now has a compelling feature with the openly gay soap star who has returned to his old stomping daytime stomping ground 20 years later. Here is an excerpt from when Soaps-Now Trey, asked Bierdz his feelings on being a called a young hunk in the 80′s. Bierdz responded, “Personally I did not think I was near as attractive as the other soap guys 20 years ago. I much prefer the way I look today. Of course, I dye my gray sideburns black. It amuses me that people think it’s a wig.”
Bierdz is set to be honored by The Human Rights Campaign with their Visibility Award in Minneapolis on September 12. And this month in August, on the 27th the actors is set for a radio appearance with listeners in the Chicago/Boston region, and he will join the “Y&R” cast at the fan event in the LA area on the 28th.
