Harvey Brownstone conducts an in-depth interview with Eric Braeden, Legendary Star of “The Young and the Restless”, Author, “I’ll Be Damned: How My Young and Restless Life Led me to America’s #1 Daytime Drama”
About Harvey's guest:
Today’s special guest, Eric Braeden, is a legendary actor, athlete and humanitarian who’s best known for playing the invincible Victor Newman for 42 years on the #1 daytime drama series of all time, “The Young & The Restless”.
He first came to our attention as Captain Hans Dietrich in “The Rat Patrol”, and as Dr. Charles Forbin in “Colossus: The Forbin Project”. And who can ever forget him as John Jacob Astor in “Titanic”, or my favourite, Reese Paxton in “The Man Who Came Back”.
In 2017 he published a highly compelling book entitled, “I’ll Be Damned: How My Young and Restless Life Led me to America’s #1 Daytime Drama.” The book chronicles his amazing journey as a youngster in postwar Germany, to his struggles as a young actor in Hollywood, constantly being typecast in one-dimensional roles playing Nazi officers and bad guys and coming to terms with the realization of the devastating crimes against humanity committed by the Nazi regime.
This inspirational man has dedicated himself to atoning on behalf of Germany, and to finding meaningful ways to advance the relationship between Americans, Germans and the Jewish Community.
He’s won 3 Soap Opera Digest Awards, a Daytime Emmy Award, a People’s Choice Award, and he has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. He’s been honoured in Monte Carlo, Italy, France, Germany, and he received a humanitarian award by the government of Israel.
