"I met Eric Braeden in 1996, before I got on the show, at a dinner party. I was like, 'Dude, that's Victor Newman! That's crazy.' Then I met him on set years later and I was kind of intimidated by him. Now, all these years later, I consider him a friend. We talk a lot about a lot of different things, and he's just a very cool man. And funny! He's great." — Daniel Goddard on working with Daytime legend Eric Braeden
