KIDS TO­DAY

CBS Soaps In Depth - - The Young & The Restless -

Day­time’s fast pace has show­biz vets shak­ing in their shoes when they guest-star on a soap, so Bergman is pleased to see that the younger crop of ac­tors man­age to keep up! “In the old days, we used to take months to do things, and we could ease peo­ple in,” he shares. “Now we just light a fire un­der­neath them and stoke the fire. We throw them into one­take scenes, one after an­other, and fly through the day. And then the very next day, they have a moun­tain of dia­logue to do! So it’s very im­pres­sive to watch a num­ber of younger ac­tors — Michael Mealor (Kyle), Melissa Ord­way (Abby), Ja­son Canela (Ar­turo) — come in ex­ceed­ingly well-pre­pared. I’ve been do­ing this for 39 years, and to watch them come in and knock it out of the park… it re­ally makes me happy!”

The kids are all right!
