The Young and the Restless Spoilers: All About The New Chance Chancellor – Conner Floyd
Speaking to Soap Opera Digest in a new interview, Floyd said that just like so many actors before him, he was incredibly nervous about his audition for The Young and the Restless. Thankfully, he had one charming actress by his side that helped him get through it all: Melissa Ordway, who plays Abby Newman on the show.
Floyd recalled, “She came out and sat next to me and asked, ‘Are you testing?’ When I said, ‘Yeah,’ she said, ‘You’re testing with me!’ She gave me some character details that really helped in my audition when we read together. This was the first time I tested for a studio, so my adrenaline was pumping. I took a couple of deep breaths to calm myself down but once we got in there, it was fun. Everybody was easy to work with, giving me notes and chatting me up. It made the whole experience pretty fun.”
With that said though, Floyd wasn’t sure if he had gotten the role until he received that all important phone call from the producers of The Young and the Restless. Since that moment though, it’s been full speed ahead with Floyd enjoying every second of it. The young actor told the publication that he’s excited to be around so many talented daytime television stars while also soaking up as much of the experience as he can.

“I’m definitely getting my feet under me. The first couple of weeks were crazy, but I feel like I’m figuring this out and finding my rhythm. I’m used to the independent film realm and I’ve never done a TV show. It’s a different kind of production with the multiple cameras and the lighting, the staging and the blocking is all pretty precise. Now I just want to step it up and bring the same intensity each day that I’m here.”
