The Young and the Restless fans probably associate Daniel Goddard with Cane Ashby and Genoa City. However, before he appeared in the soap world, Goddard portrayed a scantily clad warrior roaming an entirely different world and interesting doesn’t even begin to describe this fantastical place.
In the 66 episode series, the talented actor took on the role of Dar, a lone survivor of his tribe. He wandered from place to place searching for his beloved, defending the weak and the oppressed, humans and animals alike.
This mystical show was Beastmaster. Although it was short-lived, Goddard showed he had the acting chops to make even the most far-fetched storylines appear believable and real. A few years after appearing on the Australian show, he made his debut as Cane on The Young and the Restless. And, the rest is history.
