When the producers of Y&R gave Richard a call, he didn’t even waste one second saying yes to their offer to play ruthless media magnate Ashland Locke.

Richard also had nothing but great things to say about the cast of Y&R. In fact, he’s a big fun of Peter Bergman (Jack Abbott), Eric Braeden (Victor Newman), Doug Davidson (Paul Williams), Melody Scott Thomas (Nikki Newman) and a lot of the cast members who have been on the show for the last several decades now.

Richard continued, “I’m sitting in Doug Davidson’s dressing room and when I realize how long he’s been on the show, I’m just astounded by the longevity and the fortitude to stay with that. They gave me a manila envelope and I thought it was a script but it happened to be Melody’s book. I couldn’t put it down. Here’s another one who has been on for 40-plus years and it was jaw-droppingly compelling reading her story. I have so much compassion and respect for my colleagues.”
