The Young and the Restless news says that you might think that you know her, but you probably really don’t know the real her. Thankfully, Cait Fairbank’s father Dave Baunoch recently dished on his famous daughter and what she was like growing up. Here’s what he has to say.
The Young and the Restless News: Cait Fairbanks’ Father Opens Up About The Actress And Her Childhood
Speaking to Soap Opera Digest in a new interview, Dave said that as a child Cait was basically a miniature version of who she is today. He recalled, “She got in trouble at a very early age for singing loudly in class. She just couldn’t help herself and she was constantly in this world of imagination. When we would go to Disney World, she would end up with a war chest of every princess dress. On top of that, she had countless Barbies. She would be in her own little world all day. She was a joy to be around.”
Dave also said that future The Young and the Restless star was a pretty easy going child. He explained, “The only challenge was that by, oh, maybe 8 or 9, she developed a Broadway-caliber voice that would get a little bit out of hand. So imagine somebody singing something from Wicked or Backstreet Boys just inches from the back of your head and loud enough for an 800-seat theater. Let me tell you, it was quite the experience. I figured out really quickly that she was smarter than me and it was very intimidating and scary how she processed information and then asked questions. So, I’d have my 8-year-old basically outarguing me, which was really challenging. However, she wasn’t the type to get in trouble. That just wasn’t her. She was more the peacemaker.”
