THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS’ Sean Kanan (ex-Deacon) is finding out first hand what it means to have a woman who challenges you. His fiancée, producer Michele Vega, explains. “When I first met Sean, we were talking about his career and discussing what he’d not yet done. He laughed and said, ‘Yeah, I’ve never done a rap video — and I could never see myself doing one either,'” she recalls of the impetus for offering up her dare. “So we just jumped on it.” After rounding up original music by JR Oliney and lyrics by Darrell Johnson, the joke was suddenly a reality!
Of course, everything feels less crazy when shared with friends, so Kanan enlisted a few of his favorites. Joining him on the hilarious music video, aptly titled “I’m A Soap Star,” are THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL’s Ronn Moss (Ridge) and Kim Matula (Hope), DAYS OF FOUR LIVES’ Patrika Darbo (ex-Nancy), Y&R’s Joshua Morrow (Nick), Scott L. Schwartz (who played Bruiser in Oceans Eleven and the sequels), Betsy Russell (from the series of Saw movies) and former pro skater Pancho Moler. “We are all in white track suits with big necklaces, then there’s another shot where we are dressed like [Latin gangsters] cholos,” Kanan grins. “Wait ’til you see Ronn Moss rapping in this. It’s hysterical!”
Now in post-production, the video is set to hit YouTube soon (we’ll keep you posted). However, Kanan was good enough to offer Soaps In Depth, and fans, this sneak peek! Check it out below!
