Victor has been played by actor Eric Braeden on The Young and the Restless for forty years. At the same time, Newman Enterprises, the corporation that bears his name, is celebrating the 50th anniversary of his persona.
The achievements of Genoa City’s most influential man, who has a distinguished legacy, will shortly be honored. In his 50 years as a self-made man, Victor has dealt with a wide range of problems and difficulties.
Nevertheless, there can be some information that both devoted fans and newcomers need to be made aware of. Here are some interesting facts about this special and well-liked figure for you to consider in this hour.
Victor Is Not Victor!
Christian Miller was the patriarch of the Newman family. He had a difficult childhood and changed his name after becoming prosperous. “Victor” stands for his success, and Newman was picked because he transformed himself into a “new man.”
An Orphanage Guy!
Victor’s journey from poverty to affluence started in Buffalo, New York. Victor’s mother, Cora Miller, struggled to care for her two young kids when Victor’s father, Albert Miller, abandoned his wife and children.
She opted to raise Matt by herself while placing Christian (Victor) in an orphanage. Spoiler alerts warn that Christian Miller’s sister will attend the forthcoming Newman Enterprises 50th-anniversary party.
Victor -A Polygamist!
In Genoa City, the most potent guy has been married over 12 times. Hope Adams, Julia Newman, Ashley Abbott (twice), Nikki Reed Newman (five times), Sabrina Costelana, Diane Jenkins (twice), and Sharon Collins Newman, who was also the mother of both of his kids, Adam and Nick, are among his ex-wives. Several marriages were viewed as invalid or annulled, and one was deemed to be a fraud.
Victor Is Immortal!
Victor Newman is a strong individual who has the cat-like ability to have nine lives. He has experienced a great deal of misfortune and often escaped death over his 40 years in Genoa City.
The father of the Newman family has a fractured wrist, a broken leg, and a concussion from fighting. He suffered injuries from a spear gun, three gunshot wounds, poisoning, and stabbing.
Victor has experienced a mini-stroke, a heart attack, been knocked down stairs, been rendered unconscious, and twice passed away with amnesia.
In addition to having temporal lobe epilepsy, he suddenly learned that he had a rare blood condition that had almost killed him.
Victor Wasn’t A Permanent Figure!
Eric Braeden was first only cast on The Young and the Restless as a guest role for eight weeks. Victor was intended to be a disgusting character who cheated and mistreated his wife before being murdered.
Because of Braeden’s outstanding performance, he was awarded a contract, and the rest, as they say, is history. The main male character on the CBS daytime show, Victor Newman, is a force to be feared.
