The Young and the Restless Gets A 50th Anniversary Refresh
It’s always a big day when the soap’s entire cast gathers, and yesterday, on Instagram, several cast members revealed glimpses of what happened behind the scenes for their new cast photo and opening sequence.
Lily Winters actress, Christel Khalil, shared a video of herself in front of a green screen wearing a stunning floor-length gown as professionals filmed a new opening sequence. “New main title shots coming your way!” she captioned the short clip, which you can see below.
Beth Maitland, who portrays Traci Abbott, kept it simple with a selfie of herself with her hair in curls, and she wore a lovely burgundy top edged in sparkly stones. “How lucky am I?! @youngandrestlesscbs @cbstv @sonytvofficial,” she mused.
Chelsea Lawson star, Melissa Claire Egan, noticed something unusual about her dressing room when she snapped an old-school selfie of herself standing in front of a mirror wearing a glamorous gown with gold sequins. “Sometimes all it takes is a cast photo selfie to realize how dirty your mirror is….”
Cait Fairbanks used a fun play on words writing, “sorry, let me soap for a sec.” The Tessa Porter actress wore a stunning, low-cut black gown covered in black sequins, and dramatic sparkly earrings dangled from her ears.
Melissa Ordway (Abby Newman Abbott Chancellor) shared a series of selfies with several different cast members, including Amelia Heinle (Victoria Newman), Maitland, Eileen Davidson (Ashley Abbott), and Bryton James (Devon Hamilton). She wore a one-shouldered pink sequined gown, and her castmates wore various outfits. Her caption read, “A few of my faves ❤️ #bts #yr.”
All of these great behind-the-scenes looks make us excited to see the unveiling of the newest cast photo and a refreshed opening, which will likely come soon. You can check out all the sneak peeks below.
