There’s certainly a lot for The Young and the Restless’ Tessa Porter to celebrate, especially since she and Mariah have reunited after their estrangement. And that festive spirit is also being shared by her portrayer, Cait Fairbanks, who’s celebrating an important milestone.
Happy Birthday, Cait Fairbanks!
And that’s because she was born on July 29, 1993, in Michigan, which means that this fan-favorite actress is turning 27 years old today! Fairbanks began performing on stage when she was 8 and as she matured as an actress, she subsequently joined the casts of many community, regional, and professional theater productions.
In 2014, she starred in the critically acclaimed Off-Broadway presentation of Heathers: The Musical where she was Veronica, the female lead played by Winona Ryder in the 1989 classic feature.
Under both her stage name (having been born Caitlan Elizabeth Baunoch) and the name Ginesse, Fairbanks has composed, sung, and recorded a plethora of singles, including Digging My Own Grave, Fight of Flight, With Me, Bedford, Noise, and The Inbetween.
