Has Michael Roark Wrapped Up His Run For Good On Y&R?

We hardly knew ye! That is what many fans of the CBS Daytime drama, The Young and the Restless are saying Thursday morning after a post over the last 24 hours from actor Michael Roark who popped up on to the scene in Genoa City as Travis, and fell for Victoria Newman (Amelia Heinle).

In a post on Twitter, Roark with a photo of himself waving goodbye shared: “Travis says goodbye & sails out of town. Will he come back for his girl?TY fans, cast & crew. #Tricky #YR

But is Roark going out of town and never coming back, or will he return down the line? That is the question.  With Travis, out of the equation this could lead to a possible reconcilation down the line between Billy (Jason Thompson) and Victoria, who already this week shared a heartfelt moment with their kids in an episode on Wednesday.

So, sad to hear Michael is gone as Travis? Do you hope he returns? Do you want Billy and Victoria back together?  Share your thoughts in the comment section below!

A ‘possible reconciliation’ for Billy and Victoria??? No Thank You. N-e-x-t……….

Celia
Guest

No thank you, is right, Jay. With a nuBilly, maybe. But, Jason T is proving to be worse than Burgess for me.
If not Billy Miller, many have suggested John-Paul Lavoisier. I think he would carry the character well. John-Paul does have a sort of the Billy Abbott personality.

Yes, and he is available. Due to bad writing, DAYS has squandered another big name soap talent. Same thing has happened with Jason. It’s a shame, because Jason started out as Billy to immediate accolades, and well deserved ones. but the writing has turned Billy into a dark, sullen, self-entitled jerk. Even when Billy Miller’s Billy screwed up and made mistakes, it was never because he wished to hurt someone. He always had the best of intentions, but they just went awry. You could root for his Billy because he was a human, and the writing for his character always… Read more »

Oh lord please not him. He has no charisma. He puts me to sleep on DOOL. Jason is a great Billy much better than Burgess. Jason has the personality of the historical Billy. Maybe if you quit seeing Billy Miller as the right Billy you would see the great job Justin is doing. JPL is clearly not even close to being Billy Abbott.

@GramS.
You are entitled to your opinion. It does not make it right.
I am to mine. It does not mean I am right. It is the reason we OPINE.
I have no clue if you ever watched OLT! But, John-Paul’s character was very Billy Abbot-like.
Word to the wise: we try not to attack each other on these sites. But, try to respect each others’s opinions.
Enjoy your night.

I’m with you, Jay! Besides, it’s not really a reconciliation, given that it’s a different actor playing the role of Billy…

Thank You, Brother. Oh…and I hate to say it…but, since I know how I am (lol), I’ll say it, anyway: Ever since Billy Miller ‘jumped ship’ (or whatever) from Y&R to GH, I feel like Victoria (character-wise and all) has ‘lost her way’. Sad. Oh…and BTW, the ‘current Billy’ is starting to BORE ME…and…is behaving like an unlikable, shallow, selfish, self-centered and love ’em-and-leave ’em wanna-be playboy. BEYOND LAME!!!!!!!!!!

Have a good one, Brother.

Celia
Guest

Hmmmm. True that, James. Hadn’t thought of it that way. But, now I see the light…LOL. However, I never felt the connection between Amelia and Jason. And, Jaybird is on the same wave as mine, as far as nuBilly is concerned. I just cannot give him more than a glance; especially his runs with Phyllis. As I said, not Jason’s fault. Historically ( as was suggested Jason’s portrayal of Billy is), this is not Billy Abbott. Billy was a free spirit who captivated the viewers…stole our collective hearts and held on to them in his palm. I honestly expected an… Read more »

I hope! I hated him with Victoria and he was an average, at best, actor in my opinion! To me, JFP hired him because he looked like Billy Miller! When Miller’s sleepy time at GH is over, quit freaking around and hire him back. Thompson can move back to GH and bring Robin and Emma back where they belong, to Port Charles!

Totally agree with everything you’ve said. These two actors were much better in their original roles. Can’t put my finger on exactly what the problems are but it’s too much of a coincidence that both were so good before switching shows.

Timmm

I agree. I was so certain Jason Thompson would make a good, different Billy Abbott but I feel it is a bust! Billy Miller on GH just seems bored!

Celia
Guest

No one said that Billy Miller wants to return to Y& R. I think, those of us who pine for him, have resigned ourselves to the fact he is NOT coming back. As Dylan said, and I actually said something similar days ago, Billy Miller had that “Je e ne sais quoi”, inexplicable factor, which compelled us to forgive him everything. I want to smack some sense into this Billy…..not his fault….but, the writers’. Jason T has turned Billy Abbott into an annoying, and recalcitrant little pest. I was never a fan of Jason T, but I remember voicing my… Read more »

What makes you think Billy Miller wants to go back to Y&R, or that Jason Thompson would be interested in playing Dr. Dull again? Easy for us fans to want the actors to stay in the same roles forever, but at the end of the day it’s up to the actors themselves!

I agree with you Damin. I still say that Jill needs to come back on a permanent basis. She is connected to so many people. They could finally have Lauren do more than have dinner at the club with her husband and be his sounding board about his cases. They could bring Colin back with Jill as well. This way Cane and Lily could focus on things other than how much Hilary is ruining their lives. I always thought Stitdh was useless. Let him stay wherever he is now with his son and nurse him back to health. I am… Read more »

0ohh geez, hmmm well-
I won’t miss him, hardly knew he was there.
Travis didn’t do anything he was just there like a chair, just there …

Feel bad that Michael Roark lost a job/income. That’s nasty .

Celia
Guest
Celia

Hey, su.
Perhaps Roark was hired as a transient actor to see if a new relationship for Victoria would pan out. He served his purpose. We now are aware that Victoria is a responsible person, mother and professional….that she would not just up and leave.
I never caught on to Roark…too fast, too soon.

I HOPE HIS TEASING AT THE END OF HIS SENTENCE WILL MEAN HE WILL BE BACK ,DON’T WANT VIKI AND BILLY TOGETHER ,THAT WOULD BE ESPECIALLY IF MILLER RETURNED ,JASON IS THE FIRST BILLY I’VE LIKED AND I SURE LIKE TRAVIS.WITH TORI .

MIchael Roark reminded me of Amelia Heinle’s real life husband. They have a similar look. I started to warm up to him as Travis and Victoria needs a good man. I love Victoria and Billy but Billy ALWAYS treats Victoria horribly. They are great as friends, excellent as parents and better off away from each other. I don’t think Billy and Phyllis are a good couple. They feed each other’s worst character traits. I think Jason Thompson is the best replacement for Billy Abbott yet. Billy Miller is the cream of the crop in every way but after David Tom… Read more »

I agree Mike and all everyone can talk about is Billy Miller & Jason. WOW! Travis had great chemistry with Victoria. Please unless you bring back Billy Miller don’t put Victoria back with this Billy. Jason T. is a great actor but just not with Victoria. While your at it please let that crazy Chloe get normal and let her get over this damn story of Delia. Enough already!

Why is it every time we get someone we like, we lose them. He had great chemistry with Victoria and he wasn’t hard on the eyes either. Dam we like someone there gone, we hate someone we get the twit every day.

Celia

Oh, Linda you crack me up. Can’t be more specific than that. LOL.
I agree. I said the same thing, in a different way, above.
It was all about both Victoria and Billy having their fling, but always returning to the roost.
Hope the story does not go that way: 1) Billy is reliving his teen years–is too far gone building sand castles with “I-can-explain-with-a-good-lie” Phyllis. And, 2) Jason and Amelia are as good as oil and water: they do not mix.
But, they will be thrown together, anyway.

I don’t care one way or the other my complaint is the lousy treatment of Tracey Bregman and Christian LeBlanc (Lauren/Michael Baldwin) barely on together and one of the most stable lovimng exciting couples in YR but Pratt has virtually desimated Michaels family and left them without a story for over a year and the story that was started that would have been a blockbuster with their acting abilities was Michael’s Cancer story but this fool writer had no idea how to write a real story so he screwed it up so badly and it really could have been a… Read more »

I think when Victoria finds out about Billy’s fling with his sister-in-law it will be awhile before she takes him back because the Billy she knew would not have done this to his brother.

The only thing that could make this character remotely interesting is if we found he was hired by Victor to distract Vicky from Billy Boy, otherwise he is right up there with those characters that were there, but really can’t remember then– does Sam the vet ring any bells?

MY/Travis & AH/Victoria never clicked. He’s 10 years younger than her and it was painfully obvious!
In fact, AH hasn’t ever clicked with anyone but Billy Miller as long as I’ve been watching the show. Seems to me she’s the problem!

Michael Roarke was the best thing to happen to the Y&R in a very long time. Best looking character & there could have been so much fun with his character. Much like Paul when he was younger. So boring now with same old story lines like Chloe back, Chelsea moaning about Adam. Never any closures & new beginnings. That’s what you gave us with the Travis story.Even my favourite Victor has become a bore. Hope you shake things up soon. So many of your die hard fans losing interest in the show!!

General Hospital

Denise Alexander Responds to Outpouring of Fan Support on Her Return to General Hospital

Longtime fans of General Hospital were over the moon when it was revealed that Denise Alexander was on her way back to the ABC daytime drama series to reprise her role of Dr. Lesley Webber, mother of Laura, played by Genie Francis.

With Laura’s story with her new found half-brothers central to the current storyline, it’s a perfect time for Alexander to be back in Port Charles.

Tricia Sheldon, a fan of General Hospital who loves the vintage years of the show and more as she notes on her Twitter account, was able to reach Alexander, who is not on social media.  Sheldon showed her the outpouring of love the actress received, and the excitement on her on-screen imminent return.

In turn, Denise wrote a message to Sheldon to share publicly.  Part of which read   “Wow! I am breathless! What a wonderful surprise!  I am beyond grateful for all the kind and amazing and funny and sweet and caring and supportive and truly delicious messages. I have never felt so appreciated  and it brought tears and laughter reading each one.”

Alexander added, “I do not have a clue as to how to communicate on the Internet on Twitter.”  She then noted, “I would love to reach each and every person who wrote about that first day back. But I don’t even know what the rules are.  I’ve a vague sense that there is a limit to how long a message can be,but do not know how to reach anyone. Is there any way you could forward at least my thanks to everyone?”

Denise closed with,  “I love each and every message, and am full of gratitude.”

You can view the communication and Denise’s heartfelt message below.

Now let us know what you thought of Denise reaching out to all of the fans, and how grateful she is that viewers are excited to see her back on-screen via the comment section,
