Daniel Goddard Confirms Exit From The Young and the Restless

Photo: CBS

In shocking news on Tuesday from Daniel Goddard (Cane Ashby) himself, the actor has revealed via his post on Instagram that he is out at The Young and the Restless – the show that has been his home since 2006 (he first aired in January 2007 and left for a stint in 2011).

Goddard shared: “It is with a heavy heart that I share the news that I will no longer be part of the cast of the Young and the Restless. I am as shocked and gutted as you are… I almost didn’t post but I felt that the most loyal & loving fans an actor could wish for deserved to know and watch the last story arc knowing the rich meaning behind it. I am forever grateful for the 13 years I have been a part of the Y&R family… but sadly it seems that without Neil and Lily there just is no Cane.”

Daniel refers to the late Kristoff St. John who played Neil and his former on-screen other-half, Cristel Khalil (Lily) who opted to go to recurring status with the show and off-contract, and who also now lives in Toronto.

No final airdate for Cane’s exit from the series is available at this time.

This wasn’t the first time Goddard was let-go from Y&R.  Back in 2011 he made an exit, but amid much viewer protest, Y&R re-hired him, and in story, revealed that the character who had been shot was actually Cane’s not-so-nice twin brother.

Currently in story on Y&R is this news over Katherine’s fortune, where it appeared that she left everything to Cane instead of Devon, but that whole set-up has been fishy from the start. Will this facilitate Cane’s exit from Genoa City canvas?

Daniel has been a longtime fan favorite and champion of Y&R and the soap opera genre in general during his entire run with the CBS Daytime soap opera.

Barbie Reeves really? Because Devon got that shot gun and KABOOM blew Caine off the set with smoke coming out of both barrels . Devon said..You ain’t stealing my money mf

It really does feel like the character has run out of possibilities. I love the actor and wish Daniel the best, but won’t miss the character on the show.

You will be missed Daniel but since Lilly is gone it’s seems they never made your character exciting anymore.

Daniel Goddard seems like a really nice guy and I wish him the best, but yeah, it’s time for Cane to go.

I’m gutted as well. I’ve always enjoyed Daniel’s acting, and he’s such an asset to the show. I’m tired of the revolving door. Established actors that we’ve grown to love over the years get pushed out for new people and bad stories.

Like Daniel Goddard remarked without the Winters family, there is no Cane Asby. The current story arch, now putting Cane A., under the microscope and the delusional storyline with Katharine Chancellor’s will is straight out of left field. For what purpose does this serve? This Is totally crap!!!I will not watch one minute of the new dribble, along with, poor Devon now having to relive and cold with the new Amanda/Hilary returned from the ashes with The same mannerisms, body language as his dead wife,now a lawyer doing the bidding for some mouthpiece from the past, or so we are now.being lead to believe someone who has an ax to grind from Ms.Chancellor’s will, winding get his due process and share? this is totally worthless, and not worth viewing. I will never watch this mess. Should this dribble continue the days of this soap will be numbered, only to be replaced per the already started rumors of a ‘B or A ‘ list so called child actress now talk show with a variety of views and viewers /fan base Drew B., a actress whose claim to fame was being a child in E.T., Producers take note, the current writers are carving out the demise of this once great show and serving us over done poached eggs.

Too bad. Now Devon will be kinda on his own, although he does have cousin Nate. They could have paired Cane up with someone else. Don’t know why they stopped Traci and Cane together. Why not? It would have been interesting.

Kay

Why is he shocked?? Someone finally showed him the door he is the one who kept throwing tantrums about being paired with CK and what was ever interesting about them ? Instead of being thankful for a job and two different storylines were pitched and he with his ego trashed them. Bye

Per some reliable sources (although never made public), Beth Maitland (Traci) liked the story idea. Howver, Daniel Goddard (Cane) hated the idea and went so far as to tell TPTB that he did NOT want to play that story out. Fortunately, a lot of fans didn’t warm up to the story and it was abruptly ended.

After that, Daniel was sidelined for around 8+ weeks until the Katherine’s questionable will story started.

Momo

If true, he should have just gone with it. I was warming up to it and then it ended. Whiplash.

For the characters of Traci and Cane to be supportive and good friends was great the reason I would not have thought a romance would work is because Colleen and Lilly were best friends . DG’s rabid fans trashed Beth all over the place and he allowed it and never once spoke up to tell everyone of the nuts to treat her with some respect ! I believe she was the first actress to win a Emmy for the show he should have stepped in and yes he got tiring with me a long time ago.

Y & R don’t get rid of Cane (Daniel Goddard). He is always so pleasant to watch.

Emma

Time for him to go. Very painful to watch, his acting sucks big time, good riddance.

Another massive error by Y&R (Josh Griffith). Cane was interesting before Lily and her unfortunate family dragged him down. He can be interesting once again. Instead of bringing on deadly boring and pointless characters such as Elena, Tessa, Theo, and various Rosales’s; veteran actors should be given better storylines and acting partners.

Lily and Cane never made sense. He was in his forties and she was barely out of her teens. Then suddenly she has children close to her own age.

Y&R needs to surgically remove it’s cranium from it’s present dark location, before the audience gives up on it.

The character had been boring for a long time, it is long due. I actually thought Cane and Lily should have been rested a while back. A pity they couldn’t have left together. the downward slide started when the writers aged their kids too fast, then they had Cane father a child of a character that wasn’t memorable, no relation to anyone and has been killed off. What was the outcome of the Tracey? Cane thing. Did he ever find out her feelings? (I really hope someone will answer me)

Mary SF

The way the story wrapped up was Cane began to feel attracted to Tracey, and she was the one who did the 180 and said they should just be friends– and that was that.

Thanks for your reply. Strange that Cane started to be attracted to her. She’s hardly his type.

I, for one, will not miss Cane. He is pointless now with Lily and his kids gone.
Face it, Y&R has written very few decent storylines for their black actors recently. Case in point…everything they are doing to Devon right now. Hopefully they will clean up the ‘will mess ‘quickly and move on.

A good man but not needed on Y&R. But honestly, I just wish it were Devon! You talk about a guy that is not needed and cannot act, its Devon! His dad is gone, sister and they have a fake Hillary. PLEASE!

Not too surprised. He hasn’t been utilized that much lately. Wishing him all the best.

Suggestion – Instead of shoving Adam down our throats, why not give storylines to Mariah, Lauren and Christine? And Jack, as well, instead of the let’s see who isn’t an Abbott now! I had so much hope the new writer(s) would revitalize the show, but I am not enjoying it! They brought back Michelle Stafford as Phyllis, so do something with her, instead of making her Adam’s groupie!

Timmm

I agree. I can take or leave the new Adam. Lets use all the mega talent you mentioned!

I do think Cane Ashby has been written into a corner. I am not sure the character ever revived from the adultery story line that grew out of that Japan trip. The way Hilary was killed off with Lily taking the fall were more nails in the coffin. (Why did Lily go to jail when Newmans never do?) Writers tried to give Cane parents, siblings, stories, but seem now clueless. It is a shame for I like Daniel Goddard very much. If we still had Katherine Chancellor or Jill Abbott was more present or Lily came home to stay or the rapidly aging twins stayed in Genoa City, then maybe. They took everything away from Cane. I hope there is a positive sendoff.

I agree that this character has run it’s course. Time for Daniel to move on.

Oh Yea! Never liked the character. For one, I could not stand him jumping his wife’s bones every chance he got. I guess it was supposed to be romantic, and maybe to some viewers it was, since they were voted No.1 couple many times, but to me he looked and acted like a letch! He always had a sneaky look to me and a smile I wanted to slap off.Devon sure said it right today when he said that Katherine leaving the money to any other family member or beloved friend, but Cane makes no sense at all.
Also did not like the pairing of Cane and Traci. He was not worthy of her.

Good Riddance. His character should have stayed dead in 2011.

I have seen wonderful actors come and go on the young and the restless, I’m very disappointed at the fact that loyal viewers have to leave the show because of idiotic storyline. So when the writers were replaced and new blood came in I was so happy, then came back Chloe,Kevin, Chelsea,I read Gloria is coming back. But then we lost lily, Ashley, cane, we got Lola,Rey, Arturo, Nate, what are you thinking I loved the fact that cane and Lili fought hard to be together they fell into temptation at times under bad influence but managed to work together we also lost the twins canes baby, Paul then after 1 year Paul is back rairly, Nicki and Victor have gone thru hell and back different husbands and wives but always came back to each other, you don’t have to loose cane Ashby, the best thing to do is keep him split the wealth of Katherine’s will, and have cane and Devon use there assets to become a huge company that helps people, jobs, homes it would be awesome, if they can bring back a dead person surely they can keep cane no love interest just a person who wants to do good for everyone including himself please don’t let cane go!! I have been watching y& the restless for 30 years I have expressed my feelings before to no avail. You will loose me as a viewer, please keep cane he is a great person, humanitarian, and actor. No Cane, no long viewer anymore.. Angie Egan loyal young and restless fan.

Bye Daniel Goddard…bye Y&R. I’m down to watching Y&R once or twice a week because the show is packed mostly with characters, actors and storylines I just don’t like. I loved Traci and Cane’s story and wished it had continued. I like Traci and Jack writing the family history. That’s it. I never liked the characters of Adam or Chelsea; I absolutely hate Michelle Stafford as Phyllis;not a fan of Victor, Paul, Christine. I hate high hopes when Mal Young brought the Rosales family to GC. Obviously bringing back l old characters or characters back from the dead was not the ratings bonanza they thought it would be. Time to change writers again. My suggestion for writer is Michael Malone.

Kay

You are so right about JG going back in time but I think that they have had so many different visions of the show I thought they might be able to pull it back in ! If I was going to bring Adam back it would have been Muhney and write a story that JH version was a imposter and Adam had been held captive and he was furious with his family etc etc but because of the way Muhney left it was not possible.

Networks To Preempt Daytime Programming For Donald Trump Impeachment Hearing Coverage

Just as your favorite soaps are kicking into high gear for November sweeps next week, comes the news that due to the House public impeachment hearings on President Donald Trump, daytime programming will endure several pre-mptions starting with the first two on Wednesday November 13th and Friday, November 15th.

CBS was the first network to announce their plans for their extensive coverage, and according to the Washington Post all other networks have followed suit.  By this move by the networks it gives the hearing some extra weight and exposure to the American voters and viewing audience.

So far, leading network coverage for CBS will be reportedly anchored by Norah O’Donnell and for ABC George Stephanopoulos.

On Wednesday, the hearings begin at 10am EST, the second is scheduled for Friday beginning at 11am EST.

William Taylor, the U.S. diplomat in the Ukraine, is scheduled to testify Wednesday and on Friday Marie Yovanovitch, the former U.S. ambassador to Ukraine, is scheduled to testify.

The networks are expecting big numbers for covering the hearings, as they have in the past for impeachment proceedings and hearings.

No word yet how the soaps plan for you to see the episodes that don’t air at their regularly scheduled times, or if it shifts your soap viewing schedule by several days.
