The Young and the Restless C&G News
Have any new actors or actresses been cast on the show in contract, recurring, or day player roles? Are any well-remembered or beloved stars from other soaps, past or present, about to join The Young and the Restless fold in surprise new parts? Here’s the latest casting news from the CBS soap.
The week of September 20, 2021
Original cast member Janice Lynde is heading back to the soap as Leslie Brooks. The character will be in town to attend a special event. Lynde played Leslie from 1973 to 1977. She also returned to the soap briefly in 2018.
Another leading lady from the past, albeit not as distant past as Lynde, is apparently slated to make some appearances on the show. Lauralee Bell, who portrays Christine Blair Williams, shared a photo on Instagram from Y&R’s CBS studios parking lot. “Here today. It’s been a while,” she wrote.
With Christine back on the scene, might that mean Doug Davidson could be following as her husband, Paul Williams? There’s been no word on that, yet.
