Daniel Hall (Scott) spent most of his childhood doing musical theater. Yet when he decided to pursue acting professionally, he opted to gear his studies more toward drama at the University Of Michigan. “I studied Shakespeare and the classics, and was more interested in doing films and TV than musical theater,” he says, and with good reason. “I guess I find that type of material more realistic than breaking into song every five seconds!” In fact, that’s what attracted Hall to Y&R. “There are a lot of times when soaps can be larger than life, but I think [executive producer] Mal Young is really looking for something that’s more based in reality than, say, a show like PASSIONS was. I really like that aspect of it, because I’m more of an hour-drama kind of guy!”
These days, Hall is all about keeping it real.
