Ah, Those Days of Being Locked in a Cage ...

I interviewed Don Diamont (Brad, The Young and the Restless) yesterday for an upcoming column, and the subject got onto YouTube and how they have a plethora of scenes from YR from way back when. I mentioned that I had stumbled upon one of the scenes from when Brad's crazy ex-wife, Lisa, kidnapped him and locked him in a cage.

I told him how funny those were to watch and asked if they were laughing and having fun with it while they were filming. Here was his reply:

“Those days were not fun. The actress who played Lisa was about as nutty as her character. It was not a pleasant working experience at all. I didn’t really speak to her.”

Damn, huh? Thank goodness he got out of that cage and she ran away. I told him, "I guess that answers my next question about whether it would be fun to bring the character of Lisa back, since she got away without a trace and without punishment."

His answer, of course was a solid: "NO!"

Here is a link to one of those scenes, if you'd like to take a walk down memory lane:

Classic! Y&R loves a good cage storyline.

Aw, man. I hate to hear that. I'm the one who posted these 11 clips, and it remains one of my all-time favorite storylines. Both actors were at their best in this storyline, even if Diamont doesn't remember it fondly.
