The Young and the Restless Casting Nerdy/Cyber Life Gal, Somewhat Socially Awkward Who Will Blossom!

Doesn’t this headline sound a bit familiar?  On the surface it’s a tried and true soap opera formula; think DAYS Chloe (Nadia Bjorlin) AKA Ghoul Girl, or GH’s version of Ugly Betty, Sabrina Santiago (Teresa Castillo), and others over time.   Now whether or not this character falls anywhere near that pattern remains to be seen.

However, according to the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest on newsstands now, the number one soap opera has put out a casting call for the role of Ilsa.

The part is said to be recurring and the series is looking for an actress in her 20’s. The casting breakdown read as follows:  A native of Sweeden (or perhaps Denmark or Switzerland) who was raised in the U.S. and has no accent.  She is is described as, “A genius child prodigy.”  Ilsa is pretty, but her passion for the nerdy cyber life/work has left her a tad socially awkward and a little quirky- however Ilsa will blossom.

So put on your casting director hats and let us know who do you think fits the bill?  What actress from daytime or primetime would you like to see on Y&R? After reading the character description, what story and with whom do you think “Ilsa” might find herself involved in within Genoa City?  Share your thoughts below!

      How dumb for GH to let her go but kudos to Y&R, she has talent!

    She may not look Swedish but Ashlyn Pearce would be my choice!

        A representative from the Nordic countries! 🙂
        God kveld! ja! som er en god en sum Norsk

        A Hindi girl would be much better as a ”nerdy/cyber like gal, somewhat socially awkward who will blossom!”’ /

        And, beautiful, Su. I wouldn’t mind having Florencia Lozano on Y&R or GH, either. The three of them were so good together on OLTL.
        Su. You confuse me. Are you acting coy on purpose….adding a little mystery, eh?
        So are you part Nordic and part Indian? Are you part Viking as I? Lol.

    • I love gh

      I was just going to type that!

      October 18, 2015 at 9:42 pm

      Good one, Mister Media. But, Kevin and Mariah are cozying up, no? Maybe they’ll SORAS Connor. HaHa.

        Isn’t Kevin about forty? I love the little guy but he really needs to stop hanging out with children.

    A new love interest for Kevin!

    All the newbies under Pratt & Phelps have stunk to high Heaven – this will not be an exception – they can’t get a grasp on the ‘newbies’ they created!!

    WOW, how progressive! I hope its a ruse and its a recast of SUMMER!

      I would be so happy with a Summer recast! I have a feeling she will not be going any where since she is a friend of JFP.

      • Timmm

        October 19, 2015 at 1:04 pm

        I think Eric Braeden is fond of her, as well. HE has a lot of say on that soap!

      • Nikki

        October 19, 2015 at 4:12 pm

        Oh my gosh I would love a recast of Summer but remember there is suppose to be a big Halloween party and 4 people die. I’m thinking Joe”who is never on anymore”,, Marissa,her husband and hopefully Summer. What do you think?

    I’m so excited that another new character is being introduced. That will be WAY better than giving Eileen Davidson a real storyline…

    Well we know now that Adam cannot stop Paragon so this little sweetie will be brought to Genoa City to solve Victor’s cyber issues AND Grandpa Mustache will play match maker with her and his grandson, Noah. She is a geeky nerd who is very clumsy and awkward and Noah doesnt even notice her. Victor pushes them together in hopes that it will divert Noah’s attention away fro Marissa! There, it took me less than five minutes, check please!

    This kinda sounds like Gwen. When Hilary picked her to be Devon’s beard she was apparently nerdy, but cleaned up good.

    When will soaps learn? We don’t need/want new characters. Write good stories for the ones you have already!

RATINGS: DAYS Overtakes GH And Takes The Number Three Spot!

Following their triple-crown victory of winning Outstanding Daytime Drama Series, Writing Team in a Drama Series, and Directing Team honors at the 45th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards, Days of our Lives continued their upswing when the recent ratings were released this week.

For the week ending April 30th through May 4th, DAYS moved past General Hospital as the third most-watched soap opera. Considering DAYS has been in the fourth position of all four soaps for the last several years, this is definitely worth noting.. DAYS came in with 2,301,000 average total viewers for the ratings week, while GH had 2, 288,000. In addition, GH tied an all-time low in the womens 18-34 ratings share.

As for The Young and the Restless, they also lost the most viewers for the week with -174,00, while coming in at 4,089,000 total viewers. Even though they remain at number one and are far ahead of the other three soaps, it seems the show, which in the past has hovered around 4.5 million a week, is down. In addition, the ratings reflected that B&B is now tied with Y&R for the number one show in the womens demo 18-34, and Y&R has tied some lows in total households, and the women 18-49 ratings share.

The Bold and the Beautiful remains second of the soaps with 3,227,00 viewers, but is down over 100,000 total viewers from last year at this time. View the entire ratings picture via SON here. (more…)
