Victor Newman (Eric Braeden) has finally begun to pay for his crimes on ‘The Young and the Restless.’ Victor is about to be charged for all of his years of unlawful activities and the crimes that he has committed. According to an interview posted on the TV Insider’s website, Victor Newman will be charged with kidnapping and fraud.
The worst part of all of this is that Victor’s beloved daughter, Victoria (Amelia Heinle) is the one who turns over the evidence to the Genoa City Police Department. The article further went on to state that Victor’s wife and children will testify against him when he goes to court. The article also teased that only Summer (Hunter King) will stick by her grandfather’s side. How will Victor feel about all of this? Eric Braeden shares all with TV Insider.
Braeden shares that Victor doesn’t believe he did anything bad. All Victor thinks is that he has done all he needed to do to protect his family and their company. On the topic of Marco (Peter Bergman) having sex with Phyllis (Gina Tongnoi), Braeden divulges that Victor will be tested as never before when the reality hits.
Family means everything to the great and powerful Victor, so what will he think when his entire family turns against him in court? Braeden teased that these scenes will be emotional. This will make Victor feel all alone similarly to how he felt when he “was left on the doorstep of an orphanage at the age of 7 by people who supposedly loved him.” Braeden made mention of how many similarities him and his character share. He lost his father at the tender age of 12 and the family he grew up in was destitute. Upon losing his father he made some life changes, some he highlights resonates with his character’s sense of being alone.
The question was posed, is it over for Victor and Nikki (Melody Thomas Scott) after 35 years together? In response Braeden declared that in his perspective Victor and Nikki should be done with. “I would never tolerate a wife who spoke out against me.” said Braeden. He doesn’t believe he should stay in this marriage, something he and the writers disagree on. He also shares how he could never buy the Jack doppelganger story but as an actor he acts what he is given.
In the closing of the interview, Braeden shares how none of the people against Victor Newman are actually innocent of crimes. So Y&R fans, how do you resonate with the actor’s perspective on the story? Are you anticipating seeing this powerful man in a jump suit?
