Conner Floyd Teases “A Whole New Chance” on Y&R

Characters on soaps sometimes switch careers as easily as changing their clothes, but for THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS’ Chance, going from being chief of police to a businessman at Chancellor-Winters is going to be quite an adjustment!

“I think the main reason he’s doing it is for his family,” Conner Floyd (Chance) admitted to Soap Opera Digest. “But I think deep down, he’s tired of getting shot, he’s tired of getting stabbed, and he’s tired of getting blown up, so I think a change sounds kind of nice to him. He’s put his life on the line for the longest time and now I think he’s got to take care of the people he still has in his corner, for example, his mother.

“It’s gonna be different,” the actor added, “but he’s up for a challenge. I think Chance is one of those guys where if he’s gonna try something, he’s gonna really go for it. He’s not gonna tread lightly. He’s gonna dive deep and shoot for greatness, and try to be the best at what he does. This corporate life is something that he’s pretty unfamiliar with and he’ll be challenged, but I think he’s up for something like that.”

In addition to this major change in his professional life, Chance is also dealing with a major turnaround in his personal life as Sharon broke things off with him leaving him the opportunity to see where things might lead with Summer. And Floyd is looking forward to seeing what’s next for his alter ego on all fronts.

“I love a good change and a new challenge,” the Y&R star declared. “Bring it on! We’ve done the police work and the PTSD, marriage and divorce, and the dad stuff, so I think [the career change] is an exciting chapter and a fresh take on Chance. I think it’ll be a whole new Chance who people haven’t seen before and I’m really excited for it.”
