An Extensive Interview with Eric Braeden

by at . Comments

Eric Braeden is a busy man.

But The Young and the Restless star found time to chat about a variety of topics with TV Guide Canada. Here are excerpts from the interview:

On Amelia Heinle as Victoria:
“I agree with you that I often sometimes wonder how Heather would play certain aspects of this storyline in which Victor banished his family, but Amelia has done a fine job. She’s a different Victoria, but I enjoy her interpretation. Heather and I talk all the time. What a smart, smart girl! I miss her, for sure.”

Soap Opera Stalwart

Eric Braeden is a mainstay on The Young and the Restless.

On the U.S. Presidential election:
“Hillary Clinton was by far the most capable of them all and the best candidate of them all. However, her downfall was ironically due to her husband, Bill Clinton. In order to right his wrongs, he wanted to give her the presidency, which was a romantic and beautiful gesture, but alas, that’s what led to her downfall and failure. You see, as a woman, she couldn’t have a man pull the strings. That worked against her. It’s a tragedy. Shakespearean even. Of course, I will be voting for Barack Obama."
