Diane's (Susan Walters) world of troubles is far from over on The Young and the Restless. Jeremy Stark and his portrayer, James Hyde sticking around Genoa City and Y&R for longer than originally planned. Hyde tells Soap Opera Digest in their new magazine issue, “My social media has been going bananas and I love the response I’m getting. Soap fans are so loyal and they remember me from PASSIONS, and even from ANOTHER WORLD [ex-neil] and AS THE WORLD TURNS [ex-liam]. People seem to be loving the character of Jeremy and how he’s stirring things up and I couldn’t be more grateful for their support and love.”
Hyde reflected, “The first email I got said, ‘It’s just one episode and we don’t know anything after that. Since it was a new character that no one had played before, I couldn’t say no to that. There was never anything on their part about how the character would be written and for how long, just that he would be recurring. I imagine that it was, ‘Put him out there and see what happens.’ ”
Hyde is very happy to be working o the CBS daytime drama. He made his debut in October and praises his co-stars, “I just can’t be any happier working with such a great cast. Susan Walters [Diane], Peter Bergman [Jack] and Michelle Stafford [Phyllis] have been humbling to work with. You’re only as good as your scene partners and they’ve definitely upped the ante for me. I’m just trying to get to their level and it’s been an amazing experience.”
He went on to add, “I know I’ve got stuff still coming up but after that, there’s nothing guaranteed. Every time I get a new script, it just keeps getting better and better. All I can say is that I worked really hard on Jeremy and working with such great people has only elevated the character. So, for now, I’m just enjoying the ride.”
