The Young and the Restless News: James Hyde Opens Up About His Return To Soaps

Speaking to TV Insider in a new interview, Hyde was asked about how his role on The Young and the Restless came about. The handsome actor shared, “This is partially manifestation. I haven’t been on a soap set since Passions ended. I remember thinking that if I ever came back to daytime, I wanted it to be with Y&R. [Y&R’s casting associate] Greg Salmon has always kept me in mind. My agent reached out to the show a few times and [Greg] would say, ‘That’s not right for him but we’re keeping him in mind for something else.’ I went in for the role of Tucker McCall [which went to Trevor St. John]. I didn’t get it, of course, but Greg sent me an email telling me I’d done a nice job and maybe they could incorporate me into the show [in another role].”

He also said, “When you get those emails, you tend to take them with a grain of salt. A week or so later, they called with the part of Jeremy. I shot my first episode at the end of September and I worked with Susan. It felt so great to be back in this genre. I was on Another World, As the World Turns, and then, Passions. It’s almost like a full circle moment. It’s amazing to have all these ‘what if’s.’ We’ll see what happens.”
