One only needs to scroll through the posts of The Young and The Restless star Richard Burgi to see he is a big believer in the power of family. The actor often shares photos and stories of members of the Burgi clan.
Richard Burgi Pays Tribute
Recently, the Y&R star paid special tribute to his niece on his Instagram page. “So there are some people that exemplify service to others, putting the needs of someone else before their own,” he wrote. “There are angels that walk amongst us and one of them is my niece- pictured here with my mom who is recovering from a broken femur!-bringing some 9/11 remembrance and celebratory margaritas to her very grateful 97 year old grandmother!”
Richard Burgi has turned what was supposed to be a very short-term role of a ruthless businessman who was cheated on by his no-good wife into a man Y&R fans can’t help but root for to make troubled heroine Victoria Newman finally happy. Family hasn’t really been an important part of Burgi’s on-screen persona since coming aboard the show, but now that Ashland seems to be dying, he’s finally opening up to fiancée Victoria about where he comes from and who his mysterious family may be. Will this soften him up and allow us to see a new side of Mr. Locke?
Perhaps there’s a special niece or grandmother in Ashland’s life as well, or if rumors are to be believed, maybe there’s someone in Genoa City who already is family and we just don’t know it yet. If Ashland is changing his tune, let’s hope he’s able to change the minds of those in town who think he’s really out to destroy the Newman CEO and despise him. Or maybe that really is his plan, but a cancer diagnosis can change someone in a hurry.
It’s a safe bet whatever the answer is, Y&R viewers can’t wait to see what happens next. The Young and the Restless (YR) airs weekdays on CBS. Check your local listings for airtimes.
