The Young and the Restless Spoilers: There’s Been A Shift In Adam Newman’s Character

In a new interview with Soap Opera Digest, The Young and the Restless actor Mark Grossman, who plays Adam Newman on the hit CBS soap, admits that there’s been a shift in his character but at the same time, it hasn’t happened overnight. Fans have even noticed that Adam is listening to more of what people are saying, like in his situation with his ex Chelsea over their son, Connor. Mark put it this way, “It is rare for Adam. He’s usually hard-headed and stubborn and I think he thought, ‘I just need to get to my son!’ but Chelsea opened his eyes to make him see that’s not the best thing to do. There’s an evolution there and I think being back with Sally and reigniting that [relationship] has had an impact on him because she’s a voice of reason. She definitely helps talk him off the ledge and gives him a different perspective, so I think that’s a big reason for it.”

Now, as far as what might have prompted this shift in Adam, Mark has a few theories. He explained, “It’s a few things. Half of it is on the page, but then the other half is trying to plot it out where you don’t want to just flip a light switch and all of a sudden, you’re agreeing to everything, [and] you don’t have any defense mechanisms. I always try to make sure that there’s still all that underlying stuff, like wanting to trust people at their word but being skeptical. Sometimes we get ahead of ourselves and then we realize that somebody else may be right, but sometimes it’s hard to admit that and it takes you a little bit of time to come around.”

The actor continued, “Historically, Adam is known for having an edge and a chip on his shoulder and I love that character trait about him. I don’t think that should ever go away, but it’s nice when we don’t see that as much and we’re in this period now where he’s trying to be better. We’re all human beings and we all go through that similar stuff, right? Nobody’s perfect and when people point out things about us and we try to do better or change things, it could be a little clunky. But that’s what it is to be a human being.”
