One of these stars of The Young and the Restless was born way up north in Alaska… but which one was it?
Life is sure different in Southern California, where Y&R films life in Genoa City. While most of the actors live in Los Angeles now, many were born elsewhere around the country. But one of these actors was born in Alaska. Do you think you know which one it was?
Fairbanks, who plays Tessa on the show, moved to different places while growing up. She lived in Chicago, then Tuscon, Arizona, but spent most of her time in Orange County, a section of Southern California. But the actress was born in Troy, Michigan.
Grimes, who portrays Mariah now but started her Y&R career playing her twin, Cassie, is one of those rarities in Hollywood. That’s because she was born over the hill from the studio where she now works — in Van Nuys, California
Case has played Sharon since 1994, wowing audiences with her on again/off again storybook romance with Nick. Case has also worked on the east coast when she played Debbie on As The World Turns. But she was born in Detroit, Michigan, not Alaska.
Which means that it was Morrow, who has played Nick Newman, the oldest son of tycoon Victor Newman (Eric Braeden) — a role he has played since 1994 — is the one who hails from Alaska. Well, Juneau to be specific!
