Every hardcore soap fan is aware of the off-camera conflicts that Eric Braeden and Peter Bergman had on the set of 'The Young and the Restless' through the years. The steamer's latest storyline, based upon Michael Muhney's planned departure, has their characters involved in another series of Genoa City confrontations.
Writing staffs have been known to transfer real-life drama onto the screen, which is meant to offer a productive punch to actors and viewers alike. The scripted saga of 'Victor Newman' verses 'Jack Abbott' therefore became legendary in daytime lore.
Success breeds critique. So, it's natural that Braeden's three-plus decades of work on this iconic CBS' show has created some divisive public reactions. That fact naturally connects to the notion that some of his colleagues have responded to his character's projections in varying ways.
Bergman is a terrific actor who has served as a fitting foil during the majority of the 'Dark Knight's' reign. The backstory between these veteran soap stars always serves to further their fictional creations. With the dramatic 'Adam' interaction added to the flames during the past few months, these titans are bound to engage in verbal (or, possibly physical) blows through an already harsh winter season.
