The Young and the Restless’ Christel Khalil (Lily Winters Ashby), who is now on recurring status with the CBS Daytime drama series, has landed a key role in an upcoming indie feature film, We Need To Talk.

In the comedy/drama, Khalil will play the role of Aly Fulton.  The feature is written and directed by Todd Wolfe with production slated to begin at the end on the month. The film stars Emily Bett Rickards (Arrow) and James Maslow (Big Time Rush, Dancing with the Stars) and will soon be co-hosting CW’s new talent show The Big Stage.

According to Deadline the film’s plot follows “a self-centered, video-gaming celebrity, Great Scott Gamer (Maslow) who speaks with millions of fans every day but doesn’t know how to talk to the people he loves.  It isn’t a problem until his girlfriend says, ‘We need to talk’, before disappearing to work.  Scott frantically spends the rest of the day on a wild goose chase trying to figure out what she wants to talk about and following awful advice from friends, fans and social media trolls. On top of it all, Scott is under immense pressure to review a popular video game franchise that he’s just not that into.”

Khalil took to her Instagram to share the casting news, expressing: “So excited to announce I’m apart of this cast! Can’t wait for you all to see this film, such a funny script by @iamtoddwolfe.”

So, glad to see Christel will be in this upcoming comedic film?  Do you miss her full-time on Y&R? Comment below.

Good luck to Ms. Khalil. I cringed every time one of her “kids” called her mom. She was so wasted as Cane’s wife. He is such a stuffed shirt, and the way he was always jumping her, made me sick. Now poor Traci is having romantic thoughts about him, yuk, yuk and yuk!
