A Fa­mil­iar Face

CBS Soaps In Depth - - FEATURE INTERVIEW -

When Ja­son Canela (Ar­turo) vis­ited San Fran­cisco, he dis­cov­ered just how pop­u­lar Y&R is among fans. “I was starv­ing, so I found this lit­tle restau­rant. The host­ess was like, ‘ Do I know you?’ I’m like, ‘No, I’ve never been to San Fran­cisco be­fore.’ She lit­er­ally walked by my ta­ble four times, look­ing at me, and then she sat down

and said, ‘You’re Ar­turo!’” he re­calls with a smile. “I’m like, ‘Oh, my God, yeah!’ We ended up laugh­ing to­gether.” The host­ess ac­tu­ally turned out to be the restau­rant owner, says Canela. “It was a fam­ily- owned busi­ness. She and her sis­ter had worked in the restau­rant for 30 years, and ev­ery day at lunchtime, they would go home and watch Y&R. It’s great to see such pas­sion! This show has brought peo­ple to­gether for 30, 40 years. It’s a beau­ti­ful thing to be part of that!”

Canela loves the ex­cite­ment of fans.
