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 August 1, 2022
Robert Newman has wrapped up his run as Ashland Locke. Newman, who took over the role from Richard Burgi in February, reported that he’d taped his last episode via Twitter. He posted a video confirming his departure from the soap and thanked fans for their support.
Meanwhile, The Talk host, Natalie Morales, has nabbed a recurring role on Y&R. She’ll portray Talia Morgan, an investigative reporter. The character will appear in a story arc with Melody Thomas Scott’s Nikki Newman and Michelle Stafford’s Phyllis Summers, when the pair summon her to dig up dirt on Diane Jenkins (Susan Walters). She’ll debut later this month.
The Young and the Restless History
Y&R made its debut in 1973 and introduced more sexual undertones and younger characters to daytime soap operas. It has outlasted other soaps to become a mainstay for many households. Needless to say, four decades of storylines have kept viewers locked in.
From Victor Newman’s (Eric Braeden) family machinations to Traci Abbott’s (Beth Maitland) heart to the complicated love story of Jack Abbott (Peter Bergman) and Phyllis Summers (Michelle Stafford), Y&R knows how to entertain and keep fans coming back for more.
