Victor Newman has been played by Eric Braeden on “The Young and the Restless” for more than 40 years. On Friday, Braeden revealed that he is receiving cancer treatment.
Although I’m a little under the weather, I’m not too sick. In a video that was posted on Facebook for 13 minutes, 82-year-old Braeden admitted that he works out, albeit in a limited capacity.
According to Braeden, a urologist’s examination of his bladder found several “high-grade” cancerous cells. He revealed that he had been having issues with his prostate while recuperating from knee surgery.
The performer, who received an Emmy for his efforts, also appeared as John Jacob Astor IV in the motion picture “Titanic,” as well as in the 2018 heist thriller “Den of Thieves.” He has said that despite undergoing immunotherapy treatments for a total of six weeks, he was still able to continue acting on “Y&R.”
He said, “I’m glad to be able to go to work. “I’m glad I can get to work,” “That makes me happy. I find it hard to concentrate. I have such a passion for acting. Knowing that I can amuse others makes me really happy.
He solemnly vowed that he “will lick this.”
This jerk won’t be able to defeat me, he said. Then he continued, “I’m going to get it.” Soon enough, I’ll revert to my former self.
On a recent episode of CNN’s “Who’s Talking to Chris Wallace?”, actor Eva Longoria was attacked by Braeden for making “derogatory remarks” about her time on “The Young and the Restless.” These remarks were made by Braeden as he was being interviewed.
“You just didn’t have the talent to handle the demands of this medium,” she said. Longoria, who is now 48 years old and was a star on the serial opera from 2001 to 2003 before appearing on “Desperate Housewives,” was mentioned in a tweet by Braeden from the previous month.
