CBS ‘The Young and the Restless’ Spoilers: Bryton James Reveals His First Impression Of Girlfriend Brytni Sarpy
The actor told the publication, “Gosh, it was only a couple days after we had lost Kristoff [St. John, ex-Neil] so it was kind of tough to get back into the swing of things and start this journey of this new storyline they were about to create for me. I was asked to come in to help with screen-testing, with reading with the girls that they had to play the character of Elena. I was in the parking lot and I remember she drove up looking for the spot that they gave her to park in and that’s the first time we met. I don’t think she knew that she was reading with me that day. She pulled up and rolled down the window and asked where the spot was and I saw her and fell in love right away and told her where the spot was. We got inside and got to meet everyone. We ran lines together. She was the first one, actually, that went in the room to audition. Just right away, just the kind of person she was and the confidence that she carried and just the warmness in her heart, it was glaring. She got the part, obviously, and we continue to get to know each other. I think we both just kind of became undeniable.”
When asked if Bryton had any concerns about getting involved with Brytni off-screen, he explained, “You know, I did until I didn’t. That all went out the window. I remember Kristoff giving me that advice a long time ago probably not to do that. But it’s been great. We both have the same work ethic. We both love to be over-prepared. To have someone that shares that kind of passion for what we’re doing is a great thing. We get to run lines constantly. It’s not really acting sometimes. But it’s been great. It really has. I feel extremely blessed to have my life changed in the way it has over the last year.”
