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.

Kind of up in the air regarding all of this. This site is difficult for me to find. However, like the new Chance but don’t feel any “real” connection” with Abbey. Do find a fantastic connection between the Chance/Com duo and hope they succeeded! They have chemistry. It surprised me!

GH’s Avery Pohl on Esme’s Return: “She’s Using Her Time Wisely and Waiting For The Right Moment to Strike”

Next week, Esme Prince (Avery Pohl) is back lurking around Port Charles.  When viewers last saw Esme, she went over the parapet at Wyndemere during a showdown with Ava (Maura West).

For months, GH fans have been eagerly awaiting to see just how and when Esme would return to get revenge, or find out what she is after.  From the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest on newsstands now, it looks like the wait is over.

In dishing with SOD on her on-screen return, Pohl shared that Esme is, “essentially on the run.”  However, she adds, “Esme is aware of the circumstances she’s put herself in.  She is aware that people are going to to be after her.  She’s not dumb.”

Just what’s in store for Nikolas (Marcus Coloma), Ava, Trina (Tabyana Ali), Spencer (Nicholas Alexander Chavez) and Ryan (Jon Lindstrom) now that Esme is back?

As Esme’s plan begins to reveal itself, Pohl shares: “Before she goes right back into the thick of it, she scopes things out.  She’s using her time wisely and waiting for the right moment to strike.”

So, are you glad that finally Avery Pohl is back on GH as Esme? What do you hope happens next? Who do you think is Esme’s biological mother? Do you want her to get her comeuppance from the Cassadine clan and Trina? Share your thoughts in the comment section below.

Mishael Morgan Reveals Why She’s Taken ‘A Bit of a Step Back’ From Y&R and Gone on Recurring Status

This past June, we all celebrated the groundbreaking victory of The Young and the Restless‘ Mishael Morgan (Amanda Sinclair) as the first Black actress to ever win in the Lead Actress in a Drama Series category during the 49th annual Daytime Emmy Awards.

In the months that followed, Mishael has not been seen as much on the top-rated CBS daytime drama, plus when fans noticed she was no longer in the opening main credits, it got them wondering just what is Morgan’s status with the show.

Finally today, via video on her Instagram story, Mishael shared some news after finishing her day of taping in Genoa City.

The Emmy-winner revealed she has indeed gone on recurring status with the show: “I just wrapped my last scenes back at Y&R, and I just wanted to let the cat out of the bag a little bit.  A lot of people have noticed that my name is not on the main credits anymore, and I wanted everybody to know that it was my decision.  I decided, actually, back in December, that I wanted to take a bit of a step back from the show.  I just felt like at this point in my life and this point in my career, I wanted to mix things up a little bit. But Y&R will always be home. I have so appreciated this safe place to land that they have given me, so I know that I can be back. They are like family to me, and coming back just reminds me of that.”

Morgan also thanked the loyal viewers and her followers expressing, “I’m so appreciative of you guys, and all the fans who have supported me along this Y&R journey. But I’m still on it, I’m still going to be recurring, so you’ll still catch me in Genoa City.”

The talented star ended with a tease of projects and roles to come, telling her fans to, “Keep looking out for new things.”

So will you miss not seeing Mishael as much on Y&R?  Are you exciting to see what roles and projects she gets involved with next? Are you glad she is still recurring with the show and will continue to make appearances in stories? Comment below.
