On The Young and the Restless, Daniel Hall’s character, Scott Grainger, is used to conducting interviews. Now, he’s going to be interviewed by a reporter — one played by a former actress on a now defunct NBC soap!
Lisa Guerrero, who played scheming Francesca Vargas on Sunset Beach, has been tapped to play Kerry Forrest, a news anchor who will talk to Scott, according to Soap Opear Digest.
Currently, Guerrero serves as a correspondent for Inside Edition. In a bit of synergy, the news magazine show will feature a behind-the-scenes segment on Y&R in an upcoming broadcast.
Guerrero landed other acting roles a while back on series like The George Lopez Show, Frasier, and In The Heat of the Night. She took advantage of broadcasting opportunities by becoming a sports anchor in Los Angeles.
That led to a one-year gig as a sideline reporter for ABC’s Monday Night Football. In 2006, Guerrero joined Inside Edition. She is wed to former professional baseball player Scott Erickson.
The Young and the Restless airs weekdays on CBS. Check your local listings for airtimes.
