Michael Damian Is Back As Danny Romalotti On YR

On Friday, Michael Damian posted on Instagram, “Had a blast today filming @youngandrestlesscbs !! Thank you @therealstafford , MichaelGraziadei and amazing crew! πŸŽ₯πŸ“Ί”

The “Rock On” singer shared a photo of him beaming, as Michelle, who portrays Phyllis Summers, planted a big kiss on his cheek.

However, Lauralee Bell, who portrayed Christine Blair, aka Cricket, posted, “What? You’re in Genoa City? πŸ˜‚ yay! πŸ‘πŸ‘” She had no clue he was back!

We can already guess we know who will be in scenes with Michael Damian. It sounds like a family affair with Michael Graziadei, who plays Daniel Romalotti, Β and Michelle Stafford, who plays Daniel’s mother, and Danny’s baby mama.

The multi-talented actor/singer/writer/director/producer originally started on The Young And The Restless back in 1981. He left the series in 1998.

The last time that Michael Damian was on the CBS soap was in 2013, for the Katherine Chancellor memorial service.

Although it has been nearly a decade since he reprised his iconic soap role, he told Soap Central that he was always open to returning.

I’ve told them many times, if I’m not out of the country or directing, if they let me know when it’s going to happen, and I’m in L.A., then absolutely. I always have a great time popping on and shaking things up a little bit,” he said. “I’m just thrilled they never killed my character!

However, there is one caveat. “I don’t want to be a home wrecker.”
