Podcast of TV CONFIDENTIAL Show No. 486.3 with guest Eric Braeden is now available for listening on demand

40 Years of Eric Braeden as Victor Newman
Original Airdates: Mar. 27-29, 2020
TVC 486.3: Ed welcomes back Eric Braeden, the Emmy Award-winning actor who earlier this year celebrated his fortieth anniversary playing complex self-made billionaire Victor Newman on the popular CBS daytime drama The Young and the Restless. Topics include how Victor evolved as a character over the past four decades; the chemistry Eric has enjoyed with Melody Thomas Scott and other Y and R cast members; and Eric’s admiration for Lakers star Kobe Bryant and his relentless pursuit of excellence.

If you’re looking for a good read during this period of social distancing, may we suggest Eric’s memoir, I’ll Be Damned: How My Young and Restless Life Led Me to America’s #1 Daytime Drama, a classic immigration story that embodies the American Dream. Born and raised in Germany at the height of World War II, Eric arrived in the U.S. in 1959 unaware of the atrocities of the Holocaust. That changed dramatically one day in 1961, when he watched the film Mein Kampf—an experience that not only awakened him politically, but left him determined to redress the wrongs of his homeland and to fighting prejudice not only against Germans, but all ethnicities. Eric tells his story candidly and very movingly; you will enjoy it as much as I did.
