A “Young and the Restless” star has quit the CBS soap rather than have his salary cut, reports the New York Post.
Eric Braeden, who has played Victor Newman on the show since 1980, told the Post he should have been spared a salary cut, which producers did by invoking a contract clause that allows them to review salaries every 26 weeks. He said he would have preferred that the producers talk to him directly.
He could still return to the series if the dispute gets worked out. Producers CBS and Sony declined to comment.
