In a surprise announcement today via her Instagram account, The Young and the Restless Christel Khalil (Lily) informed her fans that she has made the decision to go off-contract at the CBS daytime drama series, and go into recurring status with the show.

Khalil, who is in a front-burner storyline since the accident that caused the death of Hilary Curtis (Mishael Morgan), had this to say: “Hello Lovelies! I wanted you to be the first to know that if you see less of me on @youngandrestlesscbs , it’s because I have decided to switch from Y&R full time to recurring status. That means I’m not leaving, just ready (after 16 amazing years playing Lily) to explore new things! I will continue to be a proud member of the Y&R family and look forward to further adventures playing Lily. Thank you for all the love and support over the years!  Xoxo  Christel”

So, what then do you think will happen to Lily, since Devon (Bryton James) wants justice for Hilary’s death?

Share your thoughts on Christel’s decision to branch out and play other parts, while maintaining her base in Genoa City and keeping the role of Lily alive, via the comment section below.

Recurring is Not a bad thing..
And– importantly;
It was Christel’s decision to branch out and play other parts, her choice.

I hope she finds what she desires and it’s a good thing she’s still with Y&R ..

I do not see that her going recurring means that Lilly will be doing to prison, nope don’t see that happening.

Good luck Christel, I like you. I wish you would stay and the god awful twosome of Nate and Devon would go forever!

But Timmm, Nate is the greatest guy (per Neil), greatest physician (per Victor), and all-around greatest psychiatrist/life coach/sage/love guru since Carmine the bartender. WHY do we NEED him or the extended Rosales family? I always am suspicious when a new character is identified as “spirited”. It usually means loud, aggressive, and obnoxious.

SH, I dont mind new characters, especially a new clan IF they use them properly! Victor is supposed to be one of the most powerful men in America? Why not bring in a whole new family to challenge him, and his family. That way we dont see the usual Abbott and Newman BS and families can fight for more than just money but new love!

I applaud Christal’s decision to branch out and do other things – why not ?

The character of Lily was essentially destroyed when they tied her to Cane. Frankly as Du’s daughter, she should have been more like Hilary- complex bad girl with a heart of gold. I wish her well– but instead of seeing less of Cane, if Lily isn’t around as much I have a sick feeling we will be seeing more of him– uggghhh

Replace her again with Davetta Sherwood. The spunkier Dru daughter. …send Cane with the kids to Australia. Now with Hillary gone , the show needs a fiery black actress to fill the void. Just like Davetta got canned when Christel returned such is showbizz, now the stage is set for her return!
Imo..the show should have never let the 2nd lily go for the original to return.

Damien…oh, I agree with you…TOTALLY!!!!! To me, Davetta Sherwood was WAY BETTER in the role of Lily than that Christel Khalil chick…PERIOD!!!!! And…yep…send Cane and those kids packing already. SAYONARA!!!!!

I think Devon should investigate what happened from the time she was at her brother place until the accident happen .he should investigate for his own mind to rest

With Hurricane Hillary gone, it’s become glaringly apparent that Lily is a weak character played by an weaker actress. The other day she was pretending to cry and shouted out, “Boo Hoo Hoo!!” and there was nary a tear. I never cared for Lily. She’s a mean girl wearing a halo–at least Hillary owned her bitchiness.
