Speaking to Soap Opera Digest in a new interview, Kin says that even though he and Maurice didn’t have a lot of scenes together during their early years on the soap, they would often go to restaurants and have lunches over the years with different people who would come with them. However, they weren’t particularly close. That’s because according to Kin, Maurice had taken fellow actor Steve Burton (Jason Morgan) underneath his wing.

Kin recalled, “Steve and Maurice were very close and I didn’t want to get in between them. Maurice had taken Steve under his wing and was really giving him the Method acting training. And I was just some hambone actor, so I didn’t think it was my place to interrupt while Steve was busy with his little notepad writing down everything Maurice said.
