It’s flashback time in Genoa City – circa the 1970s. Cathy Marks and Jonathan Stoddard are back playing the younger versions of Dina and the late John Abbott, the clan’s matriarch and patriarch. The two actors last made an appearance back in August.
Meanwhile, the Abbott children will also be airing in these scenes as much younger versions of their current characters. Julia D’arcy Badinger, Valentina Sky Gordan and Graham Taylor take on the roles of Ashley, Traci and Jack, respectively. Taylor was last seen in August.
The soap is casting the new role of Mandy and looking for an African American actress to play her. The character is described as being in her early 20s and an up-and-coming songwriter.
