CBS ‘The Young and the Restless’ (Y&R) spoilers finds that star Greg Rikaart (Kevin Fisher) recently opened up once again about his battle with Covid-19. The actor tested positive back in March, shortly after the film and television industry suspended filming because of the pandemic. Here’s what he has to say.
During CBS soap’s new one-on-one series, Greg Rikaart told his fellow co-star Melody Thomas Scott (Nikki Newman) that his two weeks of battling Covid-19 made him feel as though he was in the most vulnerable state he’s ever experienced in his life. The actor said that he certainly faced his own challenges during quarantine along with his husband Robert Sudduth, who was left to parent their four-year-old by himself.
CBS ‘The Young and the Restless’ Spoilers: Star Greg Rikaart Felt Most Vulnerable While Battling Covid-19
Greg said, “Yeah, it was a lot. And also I was really sick at the beginning of the pandemic, around mid-March throughout the beginning of April, so Rob had to be full-time parent, full-time nurse to me because I was quarantined, and he was trying to work whenever he could. So yeah, it’s a pretty crazy time.”
Greg continued, “When you’re at your most vulnerable and you’re ill, as you know, your family is a big part of what helps you through it. That was sort of like adding insult to injury; the experience was so physically hard and then adding that emotional challenge was pretty brutal. But looking back I now have the perspective of gratitude, and that I have all this time with him now is pretty great.”
Luckily, Greg managed to make a full recovery and along with Melody Thomas Scott, they are both back on the set of The Young and the Restless and back at work. Y&R airs weekdays on the CBS network. Check your local listings for times.
