An Interview with Joshua Morrow

at . Comments

The sultry, sexy Joshua Morrow sat down with TV Guide Canada for a recent interview. He discussed fan reaction to recent The Young and the Restless story lines.

Here are excerpts from the conversation:

TV Guide: Are you still shocked over the insane fan reaction to Nick and Phyllis’ romantic pairing?
Joshua Morrow: I am totally surprised, and still shocked. Soap fans generally don’t like a lot of change. Sharon and Nick were this "Romeo and Juliet" story. I thought it was going to be a hard pill for fans to swallow. When they first began talking about Nick and Phyllis, I asked the writers: ‘Are you sure?; I’m not feeling it.’

But they said they liked our energy, chemistry and the shock value associated with the pairing. I went into the story very skeptical, but was immediately blown away by the level of chemistry we shared. It was very easy. I was nervous though — Michelle Stafford [Phyllis] is this very big, dynamic actress.

Dude — the way they told that story was genius by showing Michelle’s vulnerable side, and then the fans went wild — they love Nick and Phyllis, let me tell you. I would’ve lost that bet, for sure!

TVG: I thought Nick and Sharon would be married forever!
JM: So did I! Sharon and Nick were this super-couple starter kit. They’d be together forever, experience a few hiccups and get back together — that was the drill. But Nick and Phyllis have proven they are a force to be reckoned with. It’s been a hell of a ride working with ‘The Stafford,’ as I like to refer to her. [laughs]

It’s a beautiful story because Phyllis saved Nick’s life; she made him smile again.
