Michael Was Headed To Jail!
5 YEARS AGO
Five years ago, THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS’ Michael confessed to murdering his wife’s former lover, Carmine, believing that Lauren or Fen had killed the sleazy bartender.
Christian Jules Leblanc, who plays the disgraced attorney, believed that his alter ego would spend the rest of his life behind bars before he would let either his wife or their son spend one minute in jail! “Nothing matters to him except making sure his family is safe,” said the Emmy winner. “I love the way they wrote it, where his mind is going a mile a minute. There’s not a lot of emotion when he confesses. His focus is on his family.”
In fact, Michael pulled out all his legal- eagle moves when Paul investigated. “He can’t let this go to trial,” said the actor. “He thinks Fen [is guilty], and he knows he wouldn’t make it in prison.
“Whatever happens to him,” the actor concluded, “Michael is not going to take that risk!”
“I must look guilty. I’m wearing my gin rummy face instead of my poker face.”
