Two-time Daytime Emmy winner, Eileen Davidson (Ashley Abbott) who returns this week on Y&R in story for a visit, will also be a part of the upcoming memorial episodes of the series as they honor their longtime castmate, Kristoff St. John who passed away at the age of 52 back in February.

On Y&R, the characters will say goodbye to Neil Winters and the actors who worked with St. John will share their remembrances.

Davidson will take part in the episodes airing April 25th and 26th, and then on April 29th.

Eileen told Soap Opera Digest in their latest issue on newsstands nationwide tomorrow, “When I was initially contacted by Y&R it was only supposed to be for a quick visit, but after Kristoff St. John’s passing, the show asked if I would participate in their plans to honor both Neil and Kristoff.”  Davidson goes on to say that she was ‘honored to be included.”

During,  the Michael Fairman Channel’s sit-down interview with Davidson when she departed Y&R last October, she spoke of how much she loved working with St John.  At the time she exited the series full-time, Neil and Ashley were involved romantically.

Glad to hear Eileen will be part of the episodes honoring Kristoff? Comment below.

OMG!!!! Eileen is ageless—she is soooo beautiful–so happy to have seen her today. It makes sense for her to be present, honoring Kristoff’s life in death. As far as what is ‘happening’ with the Abbott siblings and Jabot ( sp); I am somewhat taken aback by Ashley’s callous demeanor—the righteous indignation seems vindictive to me…..Never expected the turn-about—albeit, I must admit Jack deserves everything he gets. Acting the tyro…..the school boy hurt is unseemly. Considering his age and life experience(s), shouldn’t he have known better? I did say that a woman, young enough to be his daughter, must have an… Read more »

Yes … I’m glad Ashley is participating. She was Neil’s last love affair. Only fitting she’d return for his memorial.
