Michael Muhney’s “Young and the Restless” character of Adam – who had brief gay affair – is killed off were so excited last summer by the arrival of Michael Muhney as Adam Newman on The Young and the Restless.

He was an emergency recast last summer for Chris Engen and walked right into a storyline that had his character partially blind and sleeping with his lawyer and friend Rafe (Yani Gellman) to get out of a jam. It was disappointing that the Adam and Rafe storyline did not develop further or that the two never even shared an on-screen kiss.

But Muhney, previously best known for his role on Veronica Mars, was just terrific in the role and it is sad that Adam was killed off. He had gotten so evil it seems there was no way to let him live!

On his Twitter account today he wrote to fans: You all stop worrying about me! You’re too kind. I couldn’t be happier with my predicament. Lots 2 be thankful for in my life! Life is good!

Earlier this week he thanked fans for their support: Really touched by all the love from you all…now I’ve got to decide what to do & where 2 go next. Such is the life of a professional actor.

After the Adam-Rafe storyline fizzled, Michael told TV Guide Canada writer Nelson Branco that he was game for a same-sex lip-lock if the script had called for it.

“Let me tell you something, as an actor, the Rafe seduction really whet my appetite. First of all, as an actor I have no boundaries whatsoever. A character who will do anything to get what he wants will always draw me in as an actor. Adam blurred the lines of sexuality when he seduced his gay friend for the sake of self-preservation. That told the audience that there isn’t a line he won’t cross. Which makes Adam the ultimate threat because he refuses to fail or lose. … Let me tell you, if the kiss was written into the script, I would completely embrace it with open arms. I’m an actor. That’s what I do — act. I would’ve gone the distance. As I always have and always will.”

    Michael did a terrific acting job. He really walked into the role and took ownership. I had never watched Veronica Mars but after learning he was part of it, have gone back and am renting it via netflix. Good luck MM! Many good parts await you.

  3. They have just ruined this show, all the greta story lines and they get rid of them and yet keep the lame Lauren and Neal family stories going, glad this will be the end of my watching this show, well, unless Mrs Chancellor is on :-) .

  4. I prayed that the body found in the basement WASN’t Adam’s. A man that Sharon could love and maybe oneday, forgive,(he certainly proved his love to her} was so refreshing to see. She needs to get the heck away from Nick, no matter HOW MUCH HE AND PHYLLIS LOVE TO PLAY THAT SEX GAME. Sharon is so sweet and Nick is feeding off of it. She needs something good in her life.

    We need more gay stories on the Y&R. We’ve been watching for 22 years. Hot and steamy like the other roles the characters play.

  6. I just don’t want Adam’s character to leave the show. I believe that having Chelsea as his wife, and that cute little boy has changed him into a better person. I just feel that they can re-write to investigate the accident with little Delia and it will turn out that someone else had already hit the little girl before he came in contact with the area and the dog. Please bring him back!!!
