He and Neil share some important traits.
Kristoff may not have the same drama that his character Neil has on The Young and the Restless, but he admitted they do have some special things in common.
"There's a lot of seriousness in both characters—both me and Neil," he said. "I'm the family guy forever, I really am, and I somehow managed to instill that aspect of Kristoff into Neil ... There's a goof in all of us, and I have more of it than Neil. There's a real commitment to education that Neil has. I'm an artist, and it's hard for me to concentrate on the mundane. I go after the blue skies and sunshine all the time."
