Michael Graziadei Dishes on New Film

by at . Comments

Michael Graziadei will be starring in the indie drama The Outside. And he recently spoke to Soap Opera Digest about the part.

"It's a cool movie about a young surfer who ends up tangled up in the professional surfing industry," Graziadei said of his side project. "It's all about his journey and has some interesting life lessons."

This young star of The Young and the Restless is still amazed at his good fortune, as displayed in his reaction to his role in the movie.

"I'm the lead — isn't that nuts?" the actor asked. "It's unbelievable and such a big responsibility. I've never experienced anything like it. It's a lot of work. I've been putting in 15-hour days."

How does Graziadei handle the hectic schedule between the movie and the soap opera?

"Our weekend for the movie is Thursday and Friday, so I can drive back to L.A. and work here those days," he said. "I've been getting done at midnight Wednesday, driving back from San Diego and getting to L.A. at 2 in the morning to come in the next day.

Not so nice when I got hit with 50 pages of sides one day! It can be tough coming back here after being in my other character all week and trying to filter it out."

You'll never heard Graziadei complain, however. It's a pretty nice life and he knows it.
