Heartbreaking news to report this Labor Day weekend.  Former star of The Young and the Restless, Victoria Mallory (Ex-Leslie Brooks) died yesterday at the age of 64 from pancreatic cancer.

Mallory, who appeared on The Young and the Restless from 1977 till1982, and returned for a visit in 1984, was the second actress to play the central role in the early days of the CBS soap opera replacing Janice Lynde.

Throughout her run, Victoria also an accomplished Broadway singer and performer,  often sang on Y&R along with the likes of John McCook (formerly Lance Prentiss of Y&R, now Eric Forrester on B&B).  And the character of Leslie Brooks was also romantically entangled with Brad Elliot played by Tom Hallick. Victoria later played the role of Dr.  Denise Foxworthy on Santa Barbara.

On The Great White Way, Mallory made her Broadway debut when Richard Rodgers chose her to star as Maria in the first revival of  West Side Story at Lincoln Center.  She also appeared i n Carnival, and originated the role of Young Heidi in the Harold Prince/Stephen Sondheim production of  Follies, as well as the starring in A Little Night Music.

In more recent years, Victoria Mallory continued to perform and teach professionals, adults and youngsters at The Voice Studio in New York City.  She leaves behind her husband Mark Lambert, and daughter Ramona Mallory Lambert, also an actress.

Watch the opening credits of The Young and the Restless circa 1977 with Victoria with top billing as the credits begin, and take a stroll down memory lane in her honor.  On-Air On-Soaps sends our condolences to Victoria’s family and friends.  Share your thoughts on the passing of Victoria Mallory below!

My goodness; such a beautiful woman and a fine, fine actress. I remember her on Y&R like it was yesterday. It’s hard to believe it’s been more than 30 years.

Pancreatic cancer is just awful; I’ve lost several friends and acquaintances to it. Usually it’s way too far along before you even know you have it.

Sad, sad news indeed.

I am heart broken over this news. I adored her as Leslie! Watching her with Jonas at The Allegro where he dyed her hair blonde and called her Priscilla, after she was hit with amnesia and began singing at the restaurant is a scene that has stayed with me for all these years. My sympathies to the family. RIP Victoria. So young. So beautiful. So talented…X

I am still so saddened by this news. She was such a talented and charming performer. I was in high school when I saw her on Broadway in “A Little Night Music” as the young wife Anne. In fact the musical also starred Pat Elliott, Renee Buchanan from OLTL. They had a duet on the song “Every Day A Little Death” I have listened to their recording countless times. Ms Mallory met her husband working on that musical and their daughter played the same role in the most recent Broadway revival. She had been touring the country a few years… Read more »

RIP. So sorry to hear this. I met her in the ’70’s. She,born Victoria Morales, and I discussed the value of un-Hispanising our names. She was proud of her Hispanic roots,but she realised that some casting people had limited vision. A lovely,kind,thoughtful,and talented woman.

What fond memories of doing summer stock with Vicky at Lakewood Musical Theatre in PA. She was always a star!

I am very sorry . She was my absolutely favorite actress on YR back in those days. I will never forget the scene when she first met Brad. she was eating burger and fries and Brad suggested she leave off the fries. Maybe that could have been the first of a long line of real life issues YR was famous for back then.
Now, we have to listen and watch just about everything with no respect to what these things do to people in real life.
God Bless her family.

At first, it was difficult to imagine anyone else portraying Leslie Brooks, but Victoria stepped in and made everything right. She was beautiful, sweet, and above all talented. She made the role her own, and the fans loved her. This is so sad. She will always be remembered and loved by her fans.

Vicky and I were in several HS classes together, most memorably to me, Algebra and Col. Mitchell. He was exceptionally tough on her, and I believe now, it was because he knew she would have to be tough to continue in her chosen career path. She was a sweet and tender-hearted, very talented young lady. I moved away after our Junior year and the next time I saw her was on Y&R as Leslie Brooks. I was stunned and very proud of her! My heart goes out to her family! Gone WAY too soon!!

I too attended Baker High School although a couple of years behind Vicki. My first experience of seeing her perform was in the local theater production of The Sound of Music as Maria. She was beautiful, talented, and her passing saddens me a lot. A LOT

B&B’s Katherine Kelly Lang and Ashley Jones Reveal They Want Brooke & Bridget To Deal with Their Shared Past with Deacon

Katherine Kelly Lang (Brooke) of The Bold and the Beautiful was last Friday’s guest on BOLD Live, and during her interview with B&B supervising producer and host, Casey Kasprzyk, none other than Ashley Jones (Bridget) made a surprise appearance.

Once Jones arrived on the livestream (late in the episode), the discussion turned to wishing that Brooke and Bridget would get the opportunity to deal with the fallout from years ago between mother and daughter.

If fans recall, Bridget was married to Deacon (Sean Kanan), and then he had an affair with Brooke, and then Brooke became pregnant with Hope.

On BOLD Live, Lang said, “There is so much good story there.”  She then added, “I honestly feel Brooke and Bridget never dealt with that. It’s honestly something that was pushed down.”

Ashley shared on the current state of B&B’s episodes: “This is the juiciest the shows been in a long time.”  And on Brooke/Deacon/Bridget, Ashley concurred with Kelly: “Oh. 100% … they never dealt with it.”

Watch BOLD Live with Katherine Kelly Lang and special guest Ashley Jones below.

Then let us know, would you like to see Bridget return and in-turn bring with her some meaty scenes between mother and daughter, especially given Brooke’s temptation with the bottle again? Share your thoughts in the comment section.
