Joshua Morrow Worried About the Age Difference Between Nick and Sally


When Joshua Morrow found out that Nick was going to be paired with Sally on THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS, he wondered if the age difference between himself and co-star Courtney Hope would be a problem. Thankfully, the actor quickly realized there was nothing to worry about.

“Our age difference did concern me,” he admitted to Soap Opera Digest. “I mean, I’m freaking up there, man. But two weeks into it, I was like, ‘This is not a thing.’ When I look at us on screen, it doesn’t seem jarring to me. There’s obviously some chemistry there, so that sort of quelled any concerns I initially had.”

For her part, Hope wasn’t concerned, especially given who Sally had recently been involved with. “The age difference didn’t worry me because Sally just came from [a relationship] with Jack, which was more of an age gap,” she reasoned. “I just don’t see Joshua as a lot older than me. I see him as a peer and someone I relate easily to.”

On set, Morrow would frequently joke about how he was an old man, but Hope drew the line at him calling her “kid.” “I said, ‘Dude, I’m making out with you, so don’t call me that,’” she chuckled. “‘It’s so freaking weird.’”

“I was throwing the ‘old man’ out there to gauge her knee-jerk reaction,” Morrow explained. “I’d be like, ‘Yeah, I’m a lot older than you,’ and she’d cast a glance at me and say, ‘Yeah, you are.’ But she never makes me feel that I’m much older than her, which is good. I do still act like I’m 23. That’s been something that my wife and mother have complained about me for years. I definitely don’t act my age.”

Of course, there are plenty of other obstacles to Nick and Sally living happily ever after, so keep watching Y&R to see what happens next!
