The week of January 21, 2019
Judith Chapman is about to debut in a new role, later this month. The actress, who played Days’ Anjelica Deveraux from 1989 to 1991 and appeared as the character in the soap’s special Halloween episode last year, will be portraying Leo’s (Greg Rikaart) feisty mama, Diana.
Fans of The Young and the Restless, of course, are aware of Chapman and Rikaart’s work together; specifically, as mother and son. The duo has played Gloria and Kevin on the CBS soap for years.
Laura Kai Chen returns as district attorney Melinda Trask on Wednesday, January 23 and Friday, January 25. She’ll share scenes with James Reynolds’ Abe, Lamon Archey’s Eli and Kristian Alfonso’s Hope.
