Sean Carrigan's role on 'The Young and the Restless' is evolving in ways that weren't initially apparent. Such is the case with all engaging daytime storylines. Of course, strong range always makes actors appealing to the audience as well.

Consistent on-screen chemistry between Carrigan and the ever-great Amelia Heinle 'Victoria Newman' has forged YR's emerging power couple. Heinle developed her daytime chops as 'Mia Saunders' on 'All My Children' more than a decade ago. Her dramatic turns during the last six months included visions of three 'Billy Abbott's', but only one 'Stitch'.

Modern soap fans apply cheeky social media monikers to noteworthy pairs. So, it fit when Victoria and 'Stitch' naturally became 'Vitch'. Even 'Victor Newman' (Eric Braeden) approves, for now.

Acting, producing and writing taps into a deep skill set. Carrigan's entertainment background clearly reflects the heart of someone who approaches his craft seriously and is succeeding as a result. Each resume item surely combined to make him the right choice to play 'Ben Rayburn' starting in 2013.

Fans recently learned that Genoa City Memorial Hospital may soon need to adjust this busy doctor's name on its payroll records. 'Dylan McAvoy's' (Steve Burton) military buddy isn't who he said he was, as 'Kelly Andrews' (Cady McClain) recently relayed to her on-again, off-again boyfriend 'Jack Abbott' (Peter Bergman). The fierce emotion McClain's character exhibited during that office conversation underscored the depravity of whatever her brother did.

It's understandable that fans can often read into the script. That's part of the fun all enduring soap operas offer. Yet, they shouldn't believe that the author of this digital page created an article simply because he shares a first name with the actor who plays 'Stitch'. No, today's scene was written because Carrigan's respected efforts are helping to develop another solid character on one of the genre's greatest shows.
