‘The Young and the Restless’: Where Is Michael Damian Now and What Is His Net Worth?
Some of The Young and the Restless’s most beloved characters are those that haven’t had a lot of screen time but make a big impact when they do. Such is the case with Michael Damian’s role as musician, Danny Romalotti. It’s been a while since he last appeared on the CBS daytime drama. Here’s what Damian’s been up to and what he’s worth in 2020.
Michael Damian appeared on ‘The Young and the Restless’ for 30 years
It’s been a hot minute since Michael Damian graced The Young and the Restless with his acting and musical talents. However, his role remains one of the most beloved even after years of zero cameos.
The Grammy-nominated star was recruited for the daytime soap after producers saw his performance on American Bandstand in 1981, according to IMDb. From there, they added the young rock star to their rotating cast of characters.
Damian’s stint on Y&R led to a few exciting romances including Traci Abbot (Beth Maitland), Christine Blair (Lauralee Bell), and Phyllis Summers (Michelle Stafford), with who he allegedly fathered a son, Daniel (though paternity was determined to be by a fling in Phillis’ past, Brian Hamilton.
Danny’s last Y&R appearance aired in September 2013, when he returned to Genoa City for his stepmother, Katherine Chancellor’s memorial service (Jeanne Cooper).
What is Damian doing now?
Damian has been busy before during, and after his time on The Young and the Restless. As an actor, musician, director, and producer, the star has appeared on Broadway as Joseph in Andrew Llyod Webber’s/Tim Rice’s Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, breaking the single-day and weekly gross box office records in January 1994.
Along with his wife, Janeen, Damian co-wrote Hot Tamale and made his directorial debut. This led to other projects like Moondance Alexander and Flicka 2. He’s also covered TV shows such as The Sweeter Side of Life. In total, Damian’s directorial work includes 12 credits.
Though great as Danny Romalotti, Damian’s heart lies with music. Throughout his career, he’s had eleven studio albums with some of his singles in film.
In 2019, Damian co-wrote, directed, and produced High Strung Free Dance — starring Thomas Doherty and Jane Seymour — released.
In short, Y&R fans miss Danny’s presence on the small-screen. Luckily, Damian spends much of his time responding to fan comments via social media and thanking them for being along for the ride.
What is Damian’s net worth?
With so many different’ sources of income and a laundry list of talents and credits, Damina’s estimated net worth is around $3 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth.
It’s unclear what Damian has up his sleeve next. Maybe he’ll make a pit stop in Genoa City soon (we can only hope).
The Young and the Restless airs weekdays on CBS.
