CBS ‘The Young and the Restless’ (Y&R) spoilers reveal that star Christian LeBlanc (Michael) recently opened up about his character’s ups and downs as one of the most prominent and also very busy lawyers in Genoa City. Here’s what he has to say.
In a new interview with Soap Opera Digest, Christian says that even though he plays a lawyer in front of the cameras, he believes that he would make a good lawyer in real life, too. After all, he does have all of that courtroom experience even though it’s in front of the cameras, right? Ha!
CBS ‘The Young and the Restless’ Spoilers: Here’s What Michael Really Thinks Of The Newmans
The handsome actor said, “I actually think I would…. Well, you know, I have to think about that because there is the thing of everybody deserves a fair trial, whether your client is guilty or not. See, I always wonder about that, defending what you know to be a guilty person.
That’s a tough one. That’s a hard moral tightrope to walk. Medicine is a skill and you are alleviating the pain. You can do that as a lawyer, but not all the time. You will have to do a lot of things. You take an oath as a doctor to do no harm. It would be interesting.”
When asked who he thought has been the most problematic client for him on the show so far, Christian said it has been the entire Newman family, hands down. He said, “All the Newmans have been problematic. Michael consistently is asking his clients just to shut up and let him do the talking — but not Victor.
He will go his own way and be like, ‘I’m not going to plead guilty,’ even though he did it, or ‘I was framed.’ He just won’t keep his mouth shut. In the court case where Nikki, Victoria and Sharon were being tried for J.T.s death, Michael was always being caught off-guard because they lied to him over and over again to cover up for Nikki. At a certain point, Michael asked, ‘Who am I to you?’”
With that said, reports have indicated that the cast and crew of ‘Young and the Restless’ are expected back on the set of the hit CBS soap by July 14, which means that fans can expect new episodes of Y&R as early as mid to late August. We can’t wait!
