We can't help it -- we love Adam Newman. Not to mention the actor behind this conflicted and layered character, Michael Muhney. Yesterday, we shared his thoughts on just what is up with Adam and Sharon. Today we have Michael's answers to who else he'd love to work with, what he thinks about having Eric Braeden back, and who the funniest person on set is (you'll be surprised)!
What other characters would you like to see Adam interact with?
"I only let myself daydream about this ever-so-slightly, because I embrace the storyline that I am in at any given moment [i.e., Sharon/Adam/Ashley]. I certainly have enjoyed the Nick and Adam dynamic -- this sort of King Learish battle between the two brothers for their father's affection, approval, and perhaps even his throne -- I've really started investing myself in that. I think that there's also a lot of electricity, potential fireworks between the Adam and Billy characters, and where those two can go with certain things. I am really ecstatic that Eric [Braeden] is back, because the Adam and Victor stuff is phenomenal, and there's a lot of pain, a lot of longing in that dynamic. Peter Bergman is another -- I'd like to see Adam really taking another swing at Jack, perhaps, in a big way.
I guess I could go down the line! You know whose screen presence I really enjoy and I would love to go toe-to-toe with is the Neil character. I've found that the scenes I've shot with Michelle [Stafford] were phenomenal, I would love to explore some stuff there. So that's at least half a dozen right there off the top of my head that, to me, could be explosive -- if I invested in a new storyline.
I think that Maria kind of has those things in the back of her mind for all the characters -- 'When this storyline is over, where do I drive this character, what direction do I take them?' And I think the fun thing about the Adam character is that if you take him out of this storyline and put him somewhere else, there's new explosives. The stakes can be just as high somewhere else. At least from my biased perspective, I think that Adam has a lot of potential with a lot of characters, so there's kind of an endless amount of story that you can tell with this character."
