Among the things THE YOUNG & THE REST­LESS’ Bry­ton James (Devon) has in com­mon with his TV brother-in-law, Daniel God­dard (Cane)? They’ve both worked with wild an­i­mals. “Daniel has crazy sto­ries from when he was on BEASTMASTER,” says James. “He would play and wres­tle with baby tigers and bears. He even had to be buried in bugs for an episode. There’s no way that I would do that!” While James might not be a fan of in­sects, he did work with a lion when his Y&R al­ter ego ran away to a zoo, which he found a bit har­row­ing. “I re­mem­ber go­ing to the place where they raised the lion with Kristoff [St. John, Neil] and She­mar [Moore, ex-mal­colm]. The scary part was that they were walk­ing this lion on a leash as they told us the facts about it. But we weren’t pay­ing any at­ten­tion, be­cause we kept won­der­ing what we would do if the lion de­cided to do what­ever he wanted and get free!” he laughs. “No one re­ally had con­trol of the lion if it didn’t want to be con­trolled! It was sur­real.”

Both James and God­dard have worked with some big cats.
