Hayley Erin, who played Abby on Young and the Restless from 2008 to 2010, is returning to the soap. However, this time Erin will be in a whole new role.
Hayley Erin: Amazing, Grace
Soap Opera Digest reported that the soap veteran will be Claire Grace, who will be working at Newman Media.
Y&R isn’t Erin’s only soap experience. After leaving Genoa City, she joined the cast of General Hospital as Kiki Jerome, the doomed daughter of Ava (Maura West, who once played Diane on Y&R). Kiki was killed off by the evil Ryan Chamberlin (Jon Lindstrom). Erin walked away with one heck of a consolation prize, winning the Daytime Emmy for Outstanding Younger Actress in a Drama Series in 2019.
Along with her daytime roles, Erin has appeared on Pretty Little Liars: The Perfectionists, Two and a Half Men, and Modern Family.
The actress’s return to Genoa City has especially thrilled castmate Camryn Grimes, who tweeted, “Did I manifest this?! Who knows! But magic can’t be denied, and having @HayleyErin join us is a dream come true. We get a talented cast member AND my friend back stateside?? Please and thank you! Congrats, my love.” Erin replied to Grimes by saying, “I love you.”
