Cady McClain Posts Heartfelt Message On Her Status With Y&R And Notes: "It's Been A Very Hard Few Weeks. A LOT Has Been Going On."

Social media has been abuzz over the status of The Young and the Restless Cady McClain, whose character of Kelly Andrews recently has gone off the rails.    McClain, took to her facebook page on Wednesday to share her thoughts, and what she could of her status with the number one soap opera where if you read between the lines does not look so good for the character of Kelly and McClain with the series.

Cady related to her fans: ” I’ll tell you what. I’m going to level with you. It’s been a very hard few weeks. A LOT has been going on. When the time comes to talk more about it, I will. I promise. Right now all I can say is it’s about to get really, really intense on the air shows. And it’s worth watching. It’s like nothing I’ve ever acted or been involved with story-wise before. I totally understand that the character of “Kelly” drives some people crazy. But please remember, I am just the actress. I’m glad to occasionally be given the opportunity to entertain you, whether it’s on Y&R or elsewhere. And if you love the character or hate her, it’s all good. Maybe just don’t tag me when you hate on her, please, because my work means something to me. I hold the characters I get to create close to my heart. Maybe that’s “over-sensitive” of me but I don’t know how else to be without turning into a hard woman. And I’m already tougher than I want to be.

Daytime TV has been very, very good to me and I am so grateful for everything it’s given me. And daytime fans have been beyond amazing. I can always count on you.  As for comments and stuff: it’s a free country. I don’t want to tell you how to feel or try and control how you act on social media, but please try and remember I’m a real, live, human being on the other end of some of those unfriendly comments. That’s all. Just please try and remember that. Because I do. I know you’re all real, live human beings. That’s why I have never passed on my social media to a company or even a PR person. It’s always me. Always. Maybe that’s foolish but I enjoy the connection. If there’s one thing I understand, it’s loneliness.

Believe it or not, I really do. I don’t wanna lie to you about anything but I also don’t want to jump the shark and ruin a cool storyline. So it’s best I don’t say anything until you see it for yourselves and make up your own mind about what it means. It’s a mystery, and nothing’s worse than someone telling you what happens before you read the book.

As for me, the actor, the person who plays “Kelly,” I feel like I have a broken heart. Is that because I’m too close to “Kelly” or too close to my work? Do I care too much? Maybe. Probably. I don’t know. But I guess I’m just that kind of actor.And that’s all I can say.”

What do you think about Cady’s message? What do you think has happened?  Do you understand and respect her wish that fans try to stop posting unfriendly messages to her as the actress, when she is just playing a character she was given to portray on a daytime soap opera? Weigh-in below!

Although for me, it’s a job for these actors to portray with their own theatrical skills what the writers and director asks them to do. That’s it. For folks to put onto the actor (via social media) who is indeed strongly their own person out of character blame or anger for whatever is happening on screen is so very rude and disrespectful. It would be similar to attending a play and if you didn’t like the way the story was going, you stood up and verbally complained to the actor! No one would dream of that behaviour, yet behind a… Read more »

One more thing–Cady, if you happen to be reading the comments here, keep in mind how upset Glenn Close was when the director agreed to change the script which made Alex Forrestor from Fatal Attraction a one dimensional, superhuman villain devoid of conflict and yes, devoid of a sense of righteousness.
Suffice to say, many of us understand without having to read between the lines.

Wendy, when a celebrity is there for all to see, she/he makes herself/himself vulnerable. There are people out there who lurk, in silence, wait and then pounce. These two phenomena do not work independently ….they go hand-in-hand….cannot have one without the other. In other words, if a body wants to make himself/herself visible and be famous, then, he /she needs to accept any drawbacks accompanying said fame. My advise, for what it’s worth, is to either get off Twitter/Facebook….or just not read snide, abusive comments. Torturing oneself thus, is sheer foolishness. That is my feeling….I would not read what I… Read more »

I think you’re right, robert. Furthermore, I am bewildered by her ‘message’. Is she talking about verbally abusive comments towards her, the person, the actress, or her persona, the character? She is very cryptic. Did someone call her terrible, filthy names? I hope she does not refer to comments people make on her character.Good grief, it is human nature to comment on one’s acting, the character he/she represents. I love Cady….since her Dixie days…LOL. nonetheless, I do comment on Kelly, both positively and negatively…it’s the nature of the beast. It’s too bad that some people cannot separate the actor from… Read more »

HaHa, Timmm. As usual, you perk me right up….LOL. Seriously though, I am aware that Cady has a lot of issues….not a picture-perfect childhood. I feel so, so sorry for her. Her traumatic upbringing is forever a part of her psyche, her being; who she is…..any psychologist can tell you that. Her insecurity really spurred/prompted me to read anything I could find about her. I thought her writing was so ‘out there’….there must have been a catalyst in her background to make her react do defensively; so wounded…..not that I blame her. But, something was gnawing me at the back… Read more »

I wonder if this means Kelly will be killed off or shipped to a mental facility in the near future. Perhaps it will mean serious jail time for her on an accessory to kidnapping charge. I certainly would miss CM if she were to leave.

As you may be aware there are people that cannot separate the person from the character and there are people that post every thought that enters their head. To those, please think before you speak/post/tweet.
Per Cady, when the nominations came out, I noticed by her posts/tweets that she seemed down, and I was worried for her. Not being in “the biz” I may not get the purpose other than maybe it cements their jobs. She’s a very talented lady and I wish only the best for her.

I think what she is trying to say is to quit being so damn mean to the human being playing the character of Kelly. She has feelings and emotions and she takes that home to her to her family. She is only reading the script and acting what is written. Too many people forget that these actors are actors and the characters are not real. Another thing, you shouldnt make fun of the way someone looks or how old they are. Again, not all people are wired to shut every damn cruel thing said about them out. Lets hope that… Read more »

I agree, Su….to a certain extend. I think it is also bizarre for Cady’s ‘message’. But, if the insults are directed to the actor/actress, it becomes horrific and downright filthy, THAT, I do not condone. Using Harry’s words…it is mean-spirited. When someone, regardless of whom, is trashed in an obnoxious way—then, it is not fun anymore. It is inhuman….complete disrespect for humanity. By the same token, it is expected. Did Cady really think people would not take pot-shots at her or any celebrity? That’s kind of naive…let’s get real. I feel really badly because she is taking it so much… Read more »

Cee Cee–that’s it exactly. Yes, her words are rather cryptic but I think she must have gotten the news that her days are numbered on Y&R and that has got to hurt. I also recall reading the interview Michael Fairman conducted with Cady, and she spoke of having a very painful childhood. She said she looked forward to incorporating that pain into the characterization of Kelly, a character who is one of the walking wounded after losing her child. So, I would imagine that she is saddened that they turned Kelly into a one dimensional, bat shit crazy person. Some… Read more »

I am appalled that there are mean spirited pin heads at there, Timm.
This constant blurring between fiction and reality is really vexing to me.
And now in the age of social media, it’s become a past time sport to insult or shame an actor or actress.
Way before the Internet, Susan Lucci would be approached by crazed women in the supermarket furious at her for splitting up Phil and Tara. One woman even slapped her across the face and called her a “home wrecker.”
PS. How could anyone make fun of Cady’s looks? She is beautiful.

I am one of those walking wounded. I have lost a child…..only three years ago. The pain is part of me; my constant companion. I think the writers should have been more sensitive about this heartbreaking subject. Cady has been used as a ploy….a means to an end. It is regrettable that the writers have chosen to portray a grieving mother thus. I say, for shame. This storyline could have been written so differently. Instead of giving it such a negative spin, the writers could have developed an uplifting, positive and encouraging story for Kelly and all mothers who lost… Read more »

Cee Cee, wish I had something funny to say, but it will have to suffice for me to say I am so very sorry for your loss. Yes, you get it.
They could have done something meaningful with this story line but instead decided to turn Kelly into Kathy Bates from Misery.
I have known women who have lost children, my mother being one of them, and I can tell you that they never achieve “closure” that the loss of their child becomes part of who they are.

Cady McClain is a class act. While I did not follow her on All My Children, I knew of her work. When she was on As The World Turns I loved her portrayal of Rosanna. And now on Y&R she took on a role that was originally designed for someone else. She did a noble job. I don’t care for the direction the storyline is taking but that doesn’t mean I don’t love Cady. She is an awesome actress. She manages to get into you. She touches your heart. That is a mark of a talented actress. I know she… Read more »

We are all guilty of critiquing a character…so, I, for one, will not be sanctimonious about it. …..

I agree…the storyline they have written for her is not good. Her character was so good and nice before. I wish she would stay on the show but don’t see how she can be salvaged unless she goes away for awhile for treatment and then comes back the old Kelly. She is a good actress and when we all hate her it means she’s playing the part well…..kind of like Maya on Bold and Beautiful. She’s a great actress and gorgeous. We all hate her!!!!!

I am surprised the Kelly character is following the path she is. I love Cady McClain but not this turn of tales. As it did with Maura West/Diane Jenkins, the series secured a strong popular talent only to lose the opportunity with a failed character turn. Thankfully Y&R has professionals like McClain and West to perform so well in disappointing characters and stories.

Cady McClain, like Maura West, is a winning talent and if her days on Y&R end in coming weeks or months, she will continue to create and entertain. She is so very good.

Chuck Pratt has written Phyllis and Kelly as clowns and this triangle with Jack has been utter nonsense!!! I feel so sorry for PB, GT, and CM…..Cady is a CLASS ACT, going back to her days on AMC(Pratt killed her off there too), and she deserves more that his over the top, character assisnating, plot driven writing!!!

Right on with your observations. Have really been upset about how Sage/Kelly has been turned into a crazy.

And I also dislike about what they’ve done with Sage/Kelly Sullivan. Plus, I way preferred her as Connie in GH. Wish they hadn’t killed her character. Must admit this has been the basis of many of the ripple effect stories in Port Charles.

And just out of curiosity wonder how Jack goes to the bathroom since he’s bound/handcuffed to the bed?

I do like Cady, but never have been a fan of this Kelly.

Having said that, up until Pratt took over, I was starting to warm to the character’s rivalry with Phyllis.

In this world of social media, it is a shame that cowards hide behind their keyboards and write nasty things to actors and actresses who are only trying to do the best job with the material that they are given. It is a real shame that people feel they have to be nasty – if you don’t like it, turn the TV off. Nobody is forcing you to watch it. I loved Ms McClain when she was on ATWT, and I loved her portrayal of Rosanna. I was and still am happy that she’s on Y&R!

I hated what they did to the character of Kelly, who began the show as a tormented soul, but not out of her mind. The character had great potential, but when they recast the role they made her too Pollyanna, and now she is too out there to empathize with. So if Kelly ‘s days as a character are numbered I will be glad. I don’t blame the actress, she can only act what they give her and I’m sorry she feels hurt by rantings by some on social media. However, although social media is a bigger forum, soap stars… Read more »

Cady McClain is a great actress and what they have done to the Kelly character is bizarre. It’s the most violent 180 I’ve ever seen a character do, and therefore in my opinion, doesn’t lend any credibility to the storyline. The sadder consequence is that the Y and R would lose a talented soap veteran – and in a world where the soaps are dying, that is unfortunate. And as for the fans who attack her personally and don’t distinguish between character and actor, they don’t do anything for the credibility of soaps or soap fans either. Jeez.

Cady is a consummate professional whose character was basically thrown under a bus in order to generate a plot.
Kelly is a mother who will always be in state of grief after losing her child. She was always troubled, depressed even, but her mental state was always directed inward, not outward.
What they’ve done to this character is even worse than what they’ve done to Sharon.
Cady deserved better and so did Kelly.

PS. She looks like an old time classic movie star in this picture.

Cady is great. It’s very childish to trash someone who is portraying a characeter they may not like. Y&R lost the super talented Maura West, but GH picked her up and she turned that in to yet another emmy win this year. Maybe GH can nap Cady as well.

As much as I love Cady on Y&R, her potential in the role of Kelly was mis-used, and it’s sad seeing that a potential permanent exit is on the horizon. But again, do not bash an actress who is giving a top-notch job at portraying the material she is giving, material that some love and some hate. Cady is a class act, and should she be leaving Y&R, i will follow her wherever her career may take her, because she is a superb actress who should be gainfully employed at this time.

Think Cady is doing a great job in a difficult role. Don’t know whether she’s coming or going on Y&R, but her Facebook comments sound like all is not good there. I haven’t liked how the writers made Kelly fall apart. I really liked her before she had to assume the crazy role. It seems between Y&R and GH there are a lot of “breakdowns” lately, whether they are major ones, or just bad hair days snits. And it seems to be always the girls and not the guys.

Kelly just doesn’t portray crazy as a true soap crazy LOL 🙂

Good luck to her, but frankly, I’ll be glad to see the character go. Kelly was always recurring, non-contract, even when Watros played the role, which as I recall was said to be temporary from the get-go. TPTB obviously had to re-write things with the Miller-Muhney exits, making them beef up the Ben-Stitch role by putting him on contract. The Kelly character was a benefactor of that move, as they decided to link those two characters with more made-up backstory. But before all that occurred, Kelly’s wackiness was of a different (sadder) kind, and many actually thought she was the… Read more »

well,
It’s part of being an actor in the public media..
An actor has to be able to turn it off..
No other soap actors are whining about being picked on lol
It goes with the job.. they silently gotta suck it up, and they do..
A soap actor has to understand that some fans can not disconnect from the fantasy..
and when they go mean mouth wacko, the actor just has to push it off as hearing from another Kook, no big deal .
-for every wacko there are 50 admirers….

(actors and thin skin is not a good thing..

Okay, I kind of agree with you here.
Yes, if you’re a an actor and celebrity who is even a wee bit sensitive, then stay the hell out of social media.
That goes double for the overly sensitive and thrill head writer from GH.

Not sure what to make about this. I didn’t really care for McClain when she played Rosanna on ATWT and she has been “stuck” with the poorly developed character of Kelly on Y&R who recently has been in very poorly written scenes. That being said, I hate that she is getting what sounds like personal attacks on her due to her portrayal of Kelly. However, fans have confused actors who play characters on soaps for decades. For example, Eileen Fulton repeatedly has relayed about an incident (early 70’s??) where a woman accosted her on the street in response to things… Read more »

Cady you are a fabulous actor. I’ve watched you for years. When I first saw your work on ATWT I wasn’t sure about this person, but you get us involved in the character. I feel if an actor can get you all worked up about their character, they’re really good at what they do. I can see that it doesn’t look good for you on Y & R but I admirethe quaity and hard work that you put into it.

I think anyone who has criticized her acting has to realize that since Pratt took over the character has done a complete 360. Its not easy to keep changing when the writing gets more and more sophomoric. One thing for sure, she is a very good actress in a really crappy role written by crappy writers.

If if the Character that you play is a evil person and people don’t like you you have Done your job very Good
Kelly is a Character that’s meant to be disliked so you have done your job ,,,, your mistake is putting yourself too deep into kelly. Do your job at YR and leave it there
don’t let words site you out

To be honest, I dont nor did I ever like Kelly, Stitch or their mom. I hope the write them ALL off the show for good. Having said that, Cady is a fine actress and she could swing over to GH after Kelly lands in the loony bin and I would not have a problem with that at all.

I know it’s just a character and was really pulling for Kelly and Jack, then as usual the mustache interferes. I loved you as Dixie on All My Children. Actors sometimes play characters we don’t like,as far as I’m concerned Phyllis could have stayed in a coma, but in Victors true form he

Love you Cacy! as a person just not the story line the writers have given you, but a great job it is. I think I will always think off you as Dixie Cooney, when you were unspoiled by the script.
Good luck to you in whatever you do or go! It is a very hard script for you no matter what the outcome. But you are doing a SUPER Great job of the part.

Here’s hoping ALL actors and actresses clearly understand that most of their fans can distinguish fictional characters from real flesh and blood. And for those out there who can’t, perhaps they can at least follow the golden rule: do unto others and you want done unto you. It worries me how judge and jury-like any individual can become through the media– it’s a plague.

So, should Cady be reading this: here’s an apology on behalf of rude behavior.

Cady is just the latest example of Y&R’s practice of hiring superb actors without a solid story in place to showcase their talents. I think the show — and Cady — would have better served by writing Kelly out when Cynthia Watros left the show and creating a whole new character that played to Cady’s numerous strengths. Like Maura West, Cady has a huge fan base and a proven track record as a leading lady which the show should have used to bring in new viewers but instead they just plugged both actresses into roles ill fit for them and… Read more »

Remember when Y&R restless hired the great..

The supercouple Jesse/Darnell Williams and Angie/Deborah Morgan ?
And horribly wasted both of them, their great talents trashed ..
Y&R had no plans for them. they were hired for ratings to grab AMC fans..
It was CBS business..

(thanks to my neighbor for that tidbit lol)

huge misnomer… not to capitalize on ex-AMC’ Jesse and Angie

that being said; I think the biggest blunder… was Genie Francis’ Genevieve

you could throw in with: Maura West’ recast Diane Jenkins… what a bust

even she won’t mind telling you as much

I read one post… that would change so much about the current state of Genoa City

simply : make John Abbott, alive… rectify and resurge the Abbotts. Period

PS: I’ve simply had it, with the Newman “enterprise”

you know: in the Charles Pratt” escapade… LOL… his distend

using the ole recipe… that Victor and Jack ARE, in fact, STILL Y&R

i’ll give them this… they are far and away better than the younger set
ie: think the cabin high jinks… who cares? production tried to make it boisterous fun…. w/Hunter King ? not going to happen

I love the role you are in. Although Kelly is distraught over her breakup with Jack, I think she’s accurately portraying a woman who was pushed too far by Jack and Phyllis. Cady should be proud of her acting. I’ve always believed if an actress plays her part to the point the audience hates the character, she’s doing a great job! I love Kelly and hope in future episodes she redeems herself.

The role of Kelly, from the beginning with Cynthia Watros, was poorly conceived and not needed. When CW left, they should have written out the role. Instead, they hired Cady McClain, a proven mega-talent who was great on both AMC and ATWT (albeit in vastly different roles), and the show had the chance to turn the character around, make her more likable and give her a real purpose. However, Cady fell flat here on Y&R – through no fault of her own. If they gave her a new character to play, I have no doubt that she would have had… Read more »
