One of the finest actors in the cast of The Young and the Restless, Greg Rikaart (Kevin Fisher), has major story playing out right now with his longtime scene partner, Elizabeth Hendrickson (Chloe), who is back on the canvas of the top-rated daytime drama series.
On-Air On-Soaps Michael Fairman had a few moments to chat with Greg at the recent Y&R 11,000 episode on set celebration at CBS Television City were we got his thoughts on: Liz Hendrickson’s return, what it means for Chloe and Kevin, real-life fatherhood, and if his computer skills match up to those of tech wizard Kevin! As for Liz Hendrickson return, Greg enthusiastically shared: “Oh, it’s such a dream. She’s the best. Liz is back, and she’s looks better than ever, and we have a story together. It involves the two of us and there is some “revealing” things coming up, but I am going to leave it at that. That’s the tease, “revealing!”
Kevin seems to always have a penchant for the gals who are bit off-center, and Rikaart confirmed that with: “Yes, she’s (Chloe) nuts, but Kevin likes a little battiness in his ladies.” Enduring fans of the CBS soap fondly recall when Greg emerged on to the soap scene as bad boy Kevin, who was later revealed to be the brother of Michael Baldwin (Christian LeBlanc), Rikaart says that was a pivotal time: “That’s the moments where all the other moments were allowed to happen, because Kevin was supposed to just come in and go, and then when we took that turn in the story where Kevin suddenly had family that gave the character some legs and kept him around.”
Turning to those computer skills, when asked if he is as good in front of a keyboard as his Y&R alter-ego, Rikaart revealed not so much, stating: “I know how to turn my computer on!” (Laughs)
Recently, Greg became a first time father along his husband, TV writer Robert Suddith, and he is over the moon being a first time dad:”Fatherhood is the greatest thing. He’s a dreamboat … ‘Montgomery Argo Rikaart-Suduth’, a nice ten syllable name! ‘Monty’ for short.”
Watch Greg’s interview below. Then let us know, are your rooting for Chloe and Kevin to get back together? Will Kevin learn of Chloe’s duplicity with an assist from Mariah (Camryn Grimes)? Share your thoughts in the comment section below!
