Joshua Morrow on His Character's Dilemmas on 'The Young and the Restless'
Joshua Morrow plays Nicholas “Nick” Newman on the CBS soap, The Young and the Restless.  His character has been saddled with a lot of problems lately.  Besides suffering from amnesia, he's dealing with a host of personal and family issues.  His parents are divorcing and so is his sister, who is already in love with another man and carrying his child.  His current wife is stuck in prison even as news of his recent kiss with his ex is starting to spread.  To top it all, he has to raise a young son and a new baby all by himself.

Sony Pictures recently sat down with the 33-year old actor to catch up and find out how his Young and the Restless alter ego is holding up under all the pressure.

"Now he is trying to raise two young children, Noah and Summer, and look out for Phyllis' (Michelle Stafford) teenage son, Daniel (Michael Graziadei),” Morrow said of his character.  “He is also trying to get back into the swing of things at work.  Nick is trying to figure his life out.  It's difficult but he is trying to make things work. "

Struggling with memory loss and the emotions that were stirred up when he and his former wife, Sharon (Sharon Case), inadvertently locked lips while trapped in a vault, Morrow commented on Nick being torn between two women and the aftermath of his near-death encounter.

"I would say that he is not nearly confused as he was,” the Young and the Restless star said.  “Over time, he has realized that his feelings for Phyllis were very real.  He came back and everyone was telling him what is life is like and he doesn't believe it because he only remembers his life with Sharon.  He starts to see that his life with Phyllis is the real deal and remembers why he fell in love with her.  She is this amazing wife and mother.  He hasn't decided, with his heart, that he should be with Phyllis because of his feelings for Sharon but he is moving in that direction."
