Playing 'Y&R' Cast Pays Tribute to Jeanne Cooper

"My favorite thing that Jeanne would do is on cue, cuss out Jess Walton [who played Jill Foster Abbott]," Goddard surprisingly shares. ".... I would get Jeanne to say things to Jess that would make a truck driver just freak out."

Though of course, the ribbing was all in good fun.

"Every single time, without a doubt, Jess would just react, and Jeanne would just laugh and laugh and laugh -- and that's one of the things about Jeanne that I loved the most."

Cooper's death was confirmed by her son Corbin Bernsen on May 8. She was 84 years old.
