Y&R's Sean Kanan On a More "Refined" Deacon
On Air On Soaps' Michael Fairman spoke with The Young and the Restless scene stealer, Sean Kanan (Deacon) on his current storyline and fan reaction to his popping up on the show:
So let’s move on, and let’s get to your current storyline on “Y&R”. So when they told you the story that you were going to be part of…
SEAN: They didn’t. First of all I have to confess these actors I know from “Y&R” are the people I met at events or worked across the hall with when I was at “B&B”, but I did not know their characters and all their stories. I do want to stop and address something here, though. Recently, I saw this on the internet because I am guilty of checking what the fans say because I want to know what they are thinking, that somebody thought that on a recent episode that I called Victoria “Ashley” when I said, “actually”. So they wrote this whole post saying, “Get him off the show. He called Victoria “Ashley”. I promise I did not call her that. And do you think for one minute Paul Rauch would let me call Victoria... “Ashley”? As far as what the story was, I was operating from the seat of my pants because I did not know what happened to Deacon in the three years since he left LA for Genoa City. I do know that Deacon seems like he has definitely rounded out his rough edges. He seems more refined the way Maria Bell (co-exec prod and head writer, “Y&R) is writing the character. It would indicate that Deacon had polished up his game a little bit.
