The Young and the Restless spoilers say that when it comes to this fictional town of Genoa City, there aren’t many people that you can trust and that’s something Nate Hastings should have learned a long time ago. Actor Sean Dominic, who plays Nate on the hit CBS soap, opens up about his character’s supposed ‘friendship’ with Ashland Locke (Robert Newman) and how he got bamboozled, so to speak, by the conman. Here’s what he has to say.
The Young and the Restless Spoilers: Sean Dominic Opens Up About Nate Feeling Betrayed By Ashland
Speaking to Soap Opera Digest in a new interview, Sean admits that he truly believed that Nate and Ashland had a genuine friendship from the get go. He puts it this way, “ Even though Nate can look back now and think, ‘Wow, now I see why he sought me out to be his best man because I could help build his cover for him,’ he really thought they were solid friends. If he could go back, I’m sure he’d question why the friendship happened so quickly, but at the time, Nate thought they were real buddies.”
When asked if Nate should have seen all of the red flags coming from Ashland, he says that he wanted to do what was best for Victoria Newman (Amelia Heinle). He said, “Nate has seen Victoria go through some difficult times personally and to see her so happy because of Ashland made Nate think it was a real thing, so why wouldn’t he believe Ashland could be his friend?”

Not only that, but Sean admits that Nate has certainly felt betrayed by Ashland. He put it this way, “It’s made Nate really question himself and his judge of character. I know if it happened to me, it would hit my ego hard. I would be asking myself, ‘How could I let this backstabber into my life? Why didn’t I see any red flags?’ But Ashland is a smooth operator. Nate doesn’t automatically think the worst of people but it’s a big learning curve if he goes into the business world. He’ll certainly learn some things the hard way.”
