Adam seemed to have genuinely turned over a new leaf on THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS but recent events may bring out the Adam of old! In particular, the sibling rivalry between Adam and Victoria has reignited with her buying Newman Media out from under him. However, Mark Grossman insists that his alter ego has actually tried to be a better person.
“That’s still something new to him,” the actor admitted to Soap Opera Digest. “He’s trying to walk a straight path and I’ve really enjoyed Adam trying to redeem himself. It’s been nice to play but it probably won’t last forever.”
One of the things that has definitely changed about Adam recently is the way that he treats the women in his life. “He’s been up-front with Chelsea about where they stand and he isn’t manipulating Sally,” Grossman explained. “It’s all-new territory for him but he seems to be getting the hang of it. He doesn’t seem tempted to return to his old self yet.”
In particular, Grossman is excited about Adam’s budding relationship with Sally and where it could go from here. “I love that there’s no history between Adam and Sally,” he said. “Sharon and Chelsea have their very complicated pasts with Adam, but when he was played by different actors.
“If there is a relationship with Sally, it would be something brand new for me,” Grossman continued. “It’s not about recreating something or a continuation of something that was done by the previous actors before me, and I love that it’s something totally new. It’s a blank canvas with Adam and Sally, so I’m excited to see what happens with them.”
Of course, mixing business and pleasure is never a good idea, so keep watching Y&R to see if Adam and Sally can make it work or if all the drama sends Adam back to his old ways!
