The Young and the Restless News: Conner Floyd Opens Up About Being A Cop In Genoa City
Speaking to the publication in a new interview, the handsome actor says that he certainly did do a lot of research before he took on the role as Chance Chancellor on the hit CBS soap. He said, “I really enjoyed watching TRUE DETECTIVE and my dad showed me some COLUMBO, although that character was more of a detective. I also watched The Maltese Falcon to try and tap into my inner detective. I have a couple of friends whose parents are cops in Texas, so I was asking them a bunch of questions.”
Conner continued, “I also have friends that I went to college with who were in the military or still in the military, so I was shooting them texts, because Chance is a soldier at heart who transitioned into being a cop. I really wanted to bring that military aspect of Chance to life and then have him discover his passion for police work.”

When asked about Chance’s PTSD storyline, Conner admitted that it was challenging to play, but in a good way, of course. He said, “I really wanted to do that right because I’m very aware that it’s a real thing that people struggle with and they struggle with it pretty hard. So again, I was asking a lot of questions of my friends in the military who know people who have been through that. I was also doing my research online and watching videos and just trying to bring as much truth and justice to that story as I could, so somebody who did experience that would watch and say, ‘Yeah, he nailed that.’”
