FEAR­LESS

ABC Soaps In Depth - - Fea­ture In­ter­view -

When Y&R in­tro­duced a les­bian love story be­tween Mariah and Tessa, it cer­tainly caused a buzz. Did Grimes find it at all scary to tackle on screen a sub­ject that some peo­ple still see as con­tro­ver­sial? “Scary is the wrong word — it’s like an ex­cited anx­ious­ness,” the ac­tress clar­i­fies. “For me, I wouldn’t be act­ing if I didn’t love the chal­lenge, if I didn’t look for­ward to the chal­lenge and crave it. I want to do dif­fer­ent stuff than I’ve done be­fore. It’s the rea­son why I do it, so I can push my­self! To me, you never stop learn­ing and grow­ing, so when I get those op­por­tu­ni­ties to try some­thing new, it’s less about me be­ing scared, and more like me be­ing, ‘Yeah, let’s go! Let’s do it!’”

The next chap­ter be­tween Mariah and Tessa is yet to be writ­ten.
