Michael Muhney's Promise To Never Return To Soaps! Learn More Here >>>
Michael Muhney, who played Adam Newman on The Young and the Restless, recently took to Twitter to talk about the ups and downs of being an actor and revealed to fans why he would never be on another soap opera.
In a series of tweets he said, "So difficult to get roles in Hollywood. 900 people compete for 1 job. That’s just how it goes. My career is an exercise in patience whether I like it or not. I appreciate when u say u wish u could be watching me, but it’s also very hard to hear that. Just know I’m always trying. I wish I could publicly talk about the projects I come so painfully close on. There are a few every year. Unfortunately, in this hyper-angry world we live in, too many critical folks would post negative comments to those productions. It takes a helluva lot of “stickwithittude” to receive rejection as often as I face it, but I’ve nothing else to do with my time so I guess I’ll remain a glutton for punishment."
When a fan suggested "Maybe you can grab a spot on GH!", his reply was "Truly no offense to anyone in production or anyone who is a viewer but I have no desire to do another soap. It was something I thought would be an interesting challenge and I’m glad I tried it but I started career in prime time and my heart is both there and in streamers. I always promised myself I’d only ever play “Adam” on Y&R. No more. No less. That was the only character I was ever interested in portraying on daytime tele. With every big role I’ve played I saved my money. I may not be much of an artist but with the sparing talent I possess I’ve chosen to be somewhat picky about projects. I’d rather own three less houses and no yachts and have an artistically fulfilling career."
Muhney played Adam from 2009 until 2014 and garnered a Daytime Emmy Outstanding Lead Actor nomination in 2013 for the role.
