One of the hottest newcomers on the soaps this past year has been Redaric Williams of The Young and the Restless who plays Tyler on the CBS Soap. This week, Redaric is featured on the cover of Rolling Out Magazine on newsstands now with a feature and video of his cover photo shoot complete with his stellar six-pack abs and looks!
However the article on Redaric is something to look too. The Y&R stars talks about landing his role on the number one soap opera, comparisons made to former Y&R star and Daytime Emmy winner, Shemar Moore that has some fans claiming Williams is a Malcolm wannabe, and Tyler’s relationship with Lily Winters, played by Christel Khalil. Here are a few excerpts below!
Redaric on the Tyler/Lily situation since the characters work so closely in the workplace, but Lily is married to Cane (Daniel Goddard) and the dynamics of that: “You talk about dealing with a co-worker, which is very common; that’s a very, very real scenario [with] married couples or even people who are in extended relationships that are very committed to one another, and they have a co-worker who maybe is getting a little too close for comfort. It’s a very realistic depiction of a dangerous life situation and I think that’s why it makes for good viewing. People kind of tune in because they want to see what’s going to happen because I think [we] can kind of learn from situations that we see on the soaps.”
Redaric on the comparisons to Shemar Moore, who made such a name for himself as Malcolm Winters on Y&R: “If you compare me to Shemar, I am honored. He’s a great guy. He’s doing his thing — stamped, sealed and solidified — and to be able to be mentioned in the same sentence is an honor.”
