The Young and the Restless star Daniel Goddard, who portrays Cane Ashby on the show, gave fans a fabulous sneak peek behind the scenes of the No. 1 rated CBS daytime drama.
Earlier today, Goddard took to his Instagram Stories to share what appears to be an unauthorized look at some of the iconic Y&R set. He began the video in his dressing room, which just so happened to belong to soap opera legend Jeanne Cooper (Katherine Chancellor) before she passed away in May of 2013. The Cane actor revealed he had been called to set, and then he silenced the ringer on his phone before opening a door. The door boasted a sign which said to turn cell phones off before entering.
The actor took his Instagram followers on a journey inside the set, and he showed the bank of elevators at Newman Enterprises. Goddard then went into Victor Newman's (Eric Braeden) office. The tour ended with a view of Victor Newman's portrait, which appeared on today's show, according to The Inquisitr's daily Y&R recap. After his family imploded into arguments when he told them about his rare illness, Victor looked at his portrait. Before that, Adam (Mark Grossman) had said that he couldn't make Newman Enterprises his dream with Victor's image staring at him the whole time.In the four video clips, Goddard kept his voice low, and appeared to stealthily give fans a view of how things look behind the scenes. At that point, he hadn't run into any other cast or crew members, but since he did not show more, he might have been spotted shortly after the end of the last video.
Recently, Goddard shared a photo of his son, Ford -- who is 13 years old -- on his Instagram account. The actor expressed pride in his son, who has to navigate things on social media that Goddard, and many of his Instagram followers, never did at that age. Fans replied with positive comments on Goddard's heartfelt message to his son.
Meanwhile, on the show, Cane recently told Traci (Beth Maitland) that he plans to move to Lakewood, in order to be closer to his ex-wife Lily (Christel Khalil). Cane recently quit his job at Chancellor, and started working as a life coach for prisoners, helping them get their lives back on track after serving time. Traci has been Cane's biggest supporter lately, and she's writing a novel with a character based on Cane. It looks like Traci might be falling for Cane, but he seems clueless to her feelings.
As for Goddard's real life, hopefully he is able to share more special behind-the-scenes details with fans. His clips are great, if viewer reactions are any indication.
