The Young and the Restless Star Eric Braeden’s Retirement Plans Revealed

The Young and the Restless star Eric Braeden is someone who likes to tell it like it is. The actor, who has played Victor Braeden for over four decades, has no plans to stop anytime soon. Or ever, for that matter. Even though he had a battle with cancer (and won), Eric is not stopping. In fact, here are all the things that he’s most recently said about possibly retiring from the daytime television world.

The Young and the Restless Star Eric Braeden’s Retirement Plans Revealed

Back in 2021, Eric made it pretty clear that he’s not going anywhere, anytime soon and all the rumors about him possibly retiring were just that – rumors. That year, he said, “I’m turning 80 [on April 3] and while that’s one number that I sort of shy away from, I’m very proud of it. I love my life. I love my colleagues. I love my family and friends. So do I see myself retiring anytime soon? Hell no! My life has been enriched by having been introduced to so many things…. I feel very loyal to THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS, very beholden to Victor and very beholden to the audience who has supported us for all those years. I intend to stay as long as I can.”

Earlier this year, Eric reiterated that retirement is simply not a word that’s in his vocabulary. When asked about his future career plans, he told Fox News Digital, “No, hell no, no, no. I’ve known friends and colleagues of mine… athletic friends of mine who suddenly are retired. And now what? Pickleball?”
