Christian Jules LeBlanc as Michael Baldwin

The son of Gloria Abbott Bardwell and River Baldwin, Michael Baldwin -- played by Christian Jules Le Blanc -- has been a character on The Young and the Restless for 14 years. He is also the half brother of Kevin Fisher and Eden Baldwin. Michael is the father of Fenmore Baldwin (Max Ehrich). One of his most notable scenes was his attempted rape of Christine Blair (Lauralee Bell). Michael was Blair's mentee prior to this. After winning a court case, he became infatuated with her to the point of harassment. Paul Williams (Doug Davidson) was shot by Michael while trying to rescue Christine. He was given a four-year jail sentence. Well after the ordeal, Michael persuaded Christine to assist him with getting his law license back. She obliged after Michael donated a kidney to a victim of a stabbing. Later on, Michael was able to sell Christine on opening a law practice called Baldwin and Blair together. Eventually, Christine fell for the new Michael and married him. Michael ended up having an affair with Isabella Brana (Eva Longoria), who didn't want Paul knowing she was pregnant since he had feelings for Christine.
