Connor Floyd Cast as Y&R’s New “Chance” Chancellor

It’s finally official, (although previously speculated), The Young and the Restless has found their man, even though Genoa City’s Abby (Melissa Ordway) is still searching for hers!

Conner Floyd has joined the cast of the CBS Daytime drama series as the recast Phillip Chancellor IV aka “Chance”.

The part was last played by Donny Boaz who was let-go from the series and last aired back in February of this year.  Look for Floyd to make his on-screen debut later in November.

Currently in story, Chance is presumed dead after Abby received the shocking news that the her husband was killed in the line of duty in a bomb explosion.  A family heirloom was found near the site where he ‘perished’.

However, Abby believes he is still alive and feels it in her gut, and plans to go searching for him.  But, as viewers have seen this week and are about to, Chance’s ‘death’ will take a toll on Abby leading her to medicate on prescription drugs and opening up the storyline of her not taking care of her newborn baby, Dominic.  Problem is, Mariah (Camryn Grimes) is missing the child she carried and gave birth to as the surrogate for Abby and Chance.

As for Floyd, he has previously been seen in Tv and motion pictures including: Malicious Motives, A Kiss on Candy Cane Lane and the upcoming Help Wanted.

About time #yr announced this. We’ve known all along that Conner was taking over the role.

This storyline has been totally ridiculous. While obviously it makes sense to have Chance finally around, I’m still completely irritated that Donny Boaz was let go. I guess we’ll never know the reason; but he was Abby’s best pairing – they had such chemistry, and he was perfect in the role.

I really liked, Donny Boaz, as well. @Y&R should have given @Bonny more of a “chance”. he started on the show November 8, 2019. I think he had a full year. CAUGHT Covid-19, November 2020. AND of course all the off the air hiatus. And , per Wiki, his last scene was February 2021. He was let go, and there was no real explanation… how unfortunate. the thing is … he looked perfect for the part.. and still dastardly handsome… why do they all have to look like barbie doll ? this new guy is very pretty. I thought Donny… Read more »

Right, as usual. I don’t know how you keep all your facts straight. I also loved Donnie, so sexy! I may be old, but I can still look, right?

This storyline is so bad who cares about a chance recast. Melissa ordway has had chemistry with not one person she’s been paired with and don’t even try it with Devon. I can’t believe they are wasting screen time on this. I’ve watched a very long time but this sleep inducing writing just make make me stop

Only partner shes connected with was her real life husband Justin Gaston
Why wasnt he the one to come back as Chance!?
If Abby , Devon and Tessa walked up the Chancellor staircase and never came back down it would be too soon…

Based on this one photo, the actor looks age-appropriate (not nearing 40 like the prior actor) and looks like he could be the son of Phillip III and Nina.

The show will need to give the actor something compelling to do —- Not having to play sounding board to the whining Abby or saddled with this lousy baby plot. The writers need to give Chance more interaction with Nina and less with Abby.

Barbara from Atlanta,
I wonder why you think this grown man needs more time with the mother he grew up with? He’s going to have to deal with whatever issues he returns with, probably PTSD. and getting his wife off drugs, plus getting to know a child that Devon is thinking more and more of as his own and Mariah will be more than willing to grab away the minute she sees he’s being ignored or neglected. I hope this story will be as interesting as Iam making it sound, ha,ha.

Violet. THAT’S interesting. And I agree with poster Damien who responded bring back Emme Rylan and make Abby her own self and not another version of Eileen Davidson’s put upon Ashley from years gone by. The girl’s a spoiled brat daddy’s girl. Always has been. I’m surprised the baby isn’t already at a Swiss pre-school boarding school. To return in three years an angry teen.

Yes to Nina!
What a waste of true talent
Further I’d love to see Jill back more often and maybe have a bored housewife Chloe back into his orbit, shes also a Chancellor character via Esther!
A good Jill/ Chloe/ Nina rivalry in the Chancellor mansion to bring back the glory days there!
Keep Abby behind the hostess stand at Society unless Emme Rylan comes back since shes off GH

Oh Damien, if only! The true halcyon days of Y&R! No offense, but I don’t like this new guy’s look already. But I’ve promised to be more welcoming to recasts, and I LOVE Rory Gibson as nuNoah. How I miss Jill and the catty days and nights at the Chancellor mansion. And this “neglectful mom” Abby storyline is so OVER… we all know where it’s heading: Courtroom #1 at Genoa City Hall.

Could anyone remind me who is it that actually owns the Chancellor mansion? Seems it was perhaps more than one person. I would enjoy seeing Jill return.

For gawdsakes, about time—-
I’ve known that for a while–
The tragedy is; I had/have to watch all the nonsense crying and pity junk going on while knowing Chance was not dead..
It was beyond irritating and FF needed because it was ridiculous to put people through that horrible story..
The baby story is 100% worse than the Music Box story.
And I didn’t believe any story could be worse than that one.

I don’t understand why Y&R let Danny go.

The storyline promised suspense and heartbreak with a happy ending for the holidays. But I didn’t care. Stitch’s return was forced and his kidnapping of Mariah so dumb. Abby should be strong by design and history. It’s just wrongly turning on many levels. I count on these two characters for legacy and for romance and sizzle. Super couple potential. But not yet.

Maybe they should hire a child to play their son, or buy a new blanket for the kid.

OMG, I think the same time every time I see that “thing” they carry around.Do a better job of pretending it’s real, put on a different blanket as you said, anything, because this crap is really distracting.

I’m so glad for this and glad Donny was booted he was to old and not much of actor and I didn’t care for his take on Chance. Chance will have many things to handle when arriving home. YR needs the matriarch home for a stay…JILL to take control.

Replied earlier today asking who actually inherited he Chancellor mansion. That would allow more thoughts. No comment on the new “Chance.” However, I am terrible with names, truly like his mother being back on stage, think Jill could tie a lot of stories together, got far enough in my thinking to have drawn the present Ashland thing to the present point; still think it could reverse. Would like Jack and Phyllis as friends — no more.

Ingo Rademacher Speaks Out On His Dismissal From GH Sharing: “I Was Hoping to Play Jax For Another 10 or 25 Years and Unfortunately, That’s Not Going to Happen”

For the first time since he was fired for not adhering to General Hospital’s and Disney/ABC’s Covid-19 vaccine mandate, Ingo Rademacher (Ex-Jax), addressed his exit from the soap opera via an “official video” message on his Instagram account.

Ingo expressed: “I’m sorry that I didn’t put out this video earlier, but this is about thanking you guys, the fans of the show and also the GH crew and cast. I was on the show for 25 years. They were like my family a lot of the people there. I was hoping to play Jax for another 10 or 25 years and unfortunately, that’s not going to happen. I want to thank you guys for sticking with Jax for 25 years and I’m sorry that I’m not there anymore to play Jax, which is still something that I am trying to process  … it’s just kind of crazy.”

Rademacher also took aim at his former co-star, Nancy Lee Grahn (Alexis) for announcing on Twitter that he was no longer on the show, before he had a chance to do so, which he says was a huge disappointment to him given that they worked together for 25 years.

He went on to say how he appreciated all the positive comments from the fans adding, “A lot of you come on there to say that you’re vaccinated but stand for medical freedom, I love hearing that, because I believe it should be a choice.”  Ingo continued to express his view, “I don’t agree with vaccine mandates or corporations ever being able to mandate a vaccine to keep your job.”

The actor closed with another nod to the viewers of GH adding, “Thank you so much for supporting me for 25 years. I will have more news later on, but for now, just wanted to thank all of you amazing fans. Thank you.”

You can watch Rademacher’s full statement via his IG post below.  Then, let us know what you thought of Ingo’s long-awaited exit message in the comment section.
