"We were very conscious that the storyline needed to portray the very real experiences our service users tell us about. Although there are a number of similarities to women experiencing abuse in heterosexual relationships - the ways they can all experience psychological, sexual, physical and financial violence and abuse - the one main issue that differs is the lack of support services available to LGBT survivors or perpetrators."

Best known for his performance on a top rated soap opera for over 34 years, it's surprising to hear Braeden express that he did not initially intend on sticking.

"I thought I was going to do it for three months," he explained. "I couldn’t stand the medium. It was too fast. It was too – it was simply too fast."

Braeden goes on to add, "They introduced one storyline that I liked very much, when they explained why Victor Newman was who he was, he had grown up in an orphanage, and that explained his character. And I knew then that I could tap into something deeply emotional. The moment I played that scene with Nikki.. when she asked about my background...when I finished that scene I said, 'Now I'm gonna stay.'"
