How Would You Describe The Cast Of Y&R In One Word?

After all the fantastic promotion by the team behind the scenes at The Young and the Restless and CBS Daytime, it all comes down to all of us tuning-in to Thursday’s airing of the top-rated soap’s 11,000th episode!

From where the story is placed leading into tomorrow, heavy emotional stakes and drama await several characters in Genoa City as well as the viewing audience.

As part of their celebration, Y&R asked; “If you could desribe the cast in one word ….” to a myriad of cast members including: Gina Tognoni, Kristoff St. John, Steve Burton, Joshua Morrow, Bryton James, Christel Khalil, Peter Bergman, Justin Hartley, Melissa Claire Egan, Daniel Goddard, Doug Davidson, Lauralee Bell, Jason Thompson, and more.

From “hard-working” to “talented” to “professional” to “awesome” and “incredible” to name just a few of their answers, it’s true that The Young and the Restless possesses some of the biggest heavy hitters in the game.  That’s why our word that best describes the cast of Y&R would be: “A-list”.

But what would your one word be?  Let us know in the comment section below, after you watch the cast tell you theirs after the jump!

Mediocre comes to mind. I don’t think there’s much warmth or charisma in the cast. Everybody toes the line pretty much. There’s nobody who charges the screen like Terry Lester or Tricia Cast used to do.

I have been a fan since the mid eighties and aside from a choice few I think the cast is terrific. To be honest, I was having send thoughts in the beginning about the Phyllis recast. But Ms Tognoni has made Phyllis hers and I am loving it. I on hope that with the Adam situation we don’t have to sit through yet another recast. I think Justin Hartley was an excellent recast. He really understood Adam from the beginning and ran with it. With wll the hype surrounding the 11,000th epieode, I am hoping they bring Lauren to the front of th canvas more. I alwwys loved her and Michael together. Perfect fit. I am enjoying the clips at the beginning of the show. Love the flasbacks. Unless I am looking at things the wrong way, I always thought that the Abbotts were one of, I not the main core family of the show. With that being said, I was hoping that Beth Maitland (Traci), and Eileen Davidson (Ashley) would get a chance to have their moment to speak. They both have wonderful back stories Who cannot forget the wonderful cat fights between Traci and Lauren over first Danny and then Brad. And If I am remembering correctly, Victor impregnating Ashley, having her aborting said baby and having the situation winding her up in a mental hospital. Classic soap opera at its best. With that being said, congrats on this amaing milestone.

Agreement here… on all counts!

Agreed, soapqueen….
I’d like to add that, as I suspected, Chloe insinuated herself into Chelsea’s household and life methodically and successfully. I said this character’s insanity lives on.
I despise her right now. Thus, kudos to Elizabeth H for breaking the monotony that is Y&R lately…….she is one incredibly, fab actress. This woman’s capability of reeling us in by making us feel things we don’t want to feel, is an art.
I pay homage to you, Chloe/Elizabeth. At present, Chloe and Mariah are two characters that seize, grab and hold!!!!!

soapqueenforever
soapqueenforever

I to agree with you Celia. Chole did just kind of barge in and take over. I am hoping for some interesting confrontations between her and Mariah. You know those to are a hot mess waiting to happen!! At this point I would rather see Chole and Mariah go at then Billy and Cane sniping at each other. I am also wondering how much longer they are going to drag out the Sully situation.

Celia

Agreed, my dear Nikki….except I am really not looking forward to another sickening round of Phyllis and Billy.
Why, oh, why can’t I be okay with couple?! To be honest, I FF his every scene, with or without Phyllis. He bugs me more than she does. I can’t stand him……worse than the previous Billy.
Someone had mentioned John Paul Lavoisier. Now, I could really go for that idea…..and, he’d make a better Billy than his present role as Phillip (DOOL).

Nikki
Nikki

Hi CeeCee, I think its because we are so use to seeing him as kind hearted Patrick looking for his one true love Robin, so with that in mind seeing him being so mean to his brother Jack, having an affair with Phyllis, mouthing off to Trevor the way he did & always sucking up to Victoria like trying to hang on to her just incase this affair goes south. He quit being good boy on G.H. to being bad boy here. It’s funny because in a way I agree. I do think he’s doing his best but out of all the re-cast we’ve had over the years this one seems to be the hardest to re-cast. I really like Phyllis because she made the role her own and made it more reproachable where as the last one M. Stafford was too hard core for me. I’m kinda laughing to myself because I do the same thing when Summer is on. I even missed a couple of shows over the summer over her.

Celia
Celia

Hey, Nikki,
Deep down I know you’re right. I suppose the writers want to create a different Billy, albeit Billy did sleep with Sharon while she was married to Jack. So, history keeps repeating itself. Can’t be avoided in soaps. LOL.
But, I really think Billy’s lust for Phyllis is just that. Lust and infatuation. He still has strong feelings for Victoria. Methinks, he doth protest too much. So, what to make of it? Billy ants his cake and eat it too. He is a recalcitrant, spoiled, belligerent man-child….and, an untrustworthy backstabber to boot.
Summer? I’m sorry, but this girl cannot act. The scrunching up of her face and the tearless crying just do not work for me.

Nikki
Nikki

Your probably right about Billy’s feelings for Phyllis but I think we have to remember that there is no such thing as a happy couple on a soap. I like Chelsea & Adam but you know he’ll be gone long enough to tape his new show and she’ll get involved with Nick which will bring the brothers back to fighting again upon his return. I don’t care for Victor but this time I hope he get rid of Chloe and tells Billy that Bella is his. She is as crazy as a bed bug and does not deserve to keep Bella. She’s trying to turn her into another Delia. JMO!

Celia
Celia

@Nikki.
Yes, that’s certainly true, Nikki. No love is ever idyllic on soaps; nor does that halcyon bliss last very long.
Another thought came to me, though. Is it possible that Billy has always felt inadequate compared to Jack? Since Billy cannot seem to best Jack in anything, does he have this compelling need to ‘take’ from him? Such as his wife(s)? Billy IS the prodigal son.
Billy never really amounted to much. His salvation was Victoria; or so it seemed…..
I have lost all hope of anything getting resolved. I am still waiting for Adam’s name to be cleared of Delia’s death, posthumously, if need be. Let everyone eat crow.
It must be such a torturous life for Chloe to be so bedeviled. But, I doubt that the discovery of Adam’s innocence would make things right again in her world.
As far as I can see, Chloe has always been a manipulator….(Cane; Billy). So, Delia’s death finally made her snap. In her mind’s eye she needed to ‘kill’ Adam, not only to vindicate her daughter’s death, but also to free herself from what she considers, the unfair burden of seeing Adam live a normal life with his wife and son. She needed to abate this overwhelming flood of hate that took over her life.

If I had to use one word for this cast…it would be GRATEFUL! Grateful to be on a show that is still number one in the ratings despite YEARS of non-stories, meandering plots that go nowhere, complete history rewrites that have compromised the ages of all of the characters, Victor always coming out on top after outrageous crimes, ill-advised plot twists, pointless stunt casting, and so much more.

Y&R is the best of the best, as a kid I had to watch it with my mother, so I grew up watching it from the beginning with the early families, the Brooks family and the Foster family, before introducing the Newman family and all the rest of the other families.

30min show when it began, and finally going to 1hr – Y&R will stand as the best soap ever.

My word Addictive (I am still watching it and so is my mother)

kevin

Same here Adam, I have been watching it from the beginning for I watched it with my mother but once Bill Bell passed and Kay Alden was let go and the show took away the classic background music, I have given up on the show. I do turn in from time to time to see if it’s going back to it’s roots but every time I tune in I am disappointed. I love change but only if it’s for the good. The one word I can think of is SAD, SAD for it’s not like it was for year’s the classic soap that it USE to be.

Nanci

My word is delightfully diverse. Ok, two words.

I am so grateful for Y and R…love, love, love it despite
occasional annoyances with certain storylines, or characters,
well, just Summer really. And Ben.
I will always watch!

I agree. Summer and Stitch were always my annoyances as well. I say Stitch should have left after his mother and sister left. But addictive sums it up fo me as well. They keep writing and I’ll keep watching!!!

Just happy to read that there’s another person out there who recalls the Brookes’ and Fosters’ families… separate stories, equal air-time. And the music was the best! We’v seen all the changes, some good and many not so good. Somehow, we remain loyal.

Superficial ! Nothing is real it is all a show all a stage no one is real they just play their parts ! It is called a Imitation of Life! As Sandra Dee said to Lana Turner in the movie this is not a stage this is real life ! Like to see some real news not pandering to your audience

Miracle workers– okay that is two words, but that is how I would describe any cast that can take the crap that this show has to endure behind the scenes from networks slashing budgets, to mediocre writing, to soul killing producers to endless behind the scenes drama and uncertainty– and still turn in even on bad days a decent performance to brilliant ones with the odd good script that still excels– to me that is a miracle worker.

On a side note– and I am sure there will be a thread on this at some point— but the cabin blowing up was hedging their bets- if JH stays, Adam will have gotten out and have the same face– if JH leaves, they recast and Adam has plastic surgery again because of his burns- if they re do his face a third time– I think the fourth face change is free– LOL

soapqueenforever
soapqueenforever

If he got out. He was in a heap on the floor after Chole shot him. If he survives that he is definitely the Energizer Bunny. And what about Chelsea? Depending upon how close she was, whose to say what she is going to wind up looking like. Unless of course, she’ll be fine, so Nick can play the hero and spend his time babysitting Connor and Chelsea, and they can have their affair well under way for when he comes back. I bet Victor feels real good right about now

Rebecca1

LOL! Mary SF! Fourth face free…hilarious!

I was thinking maybe they’ll do a GH spin…he gets out, dazed, confused, amnesia, which gives Justin time to be off screen for his new show. Meanwhile, off camera he could be held hostage ala Todd/Victor was at the end of OLTL or (James Caan by Kathy Bates in Misery). If Justin’s not keeping the role than he does a full Jason Morgan…amnesia and a new face. Hahaha…soaps!

Well, I live on the west coast and watch recordings later than most. It feels safe that no one reads what I write. I stand by my comment, but want to say how talented the cast remains. Every time a beloved character leaves it is difficult. It is difficult when a new character or replacement of character arrives. Then the deck is shuffled.

Thanks for my years of enjoyment!

How to Get Away With Murder To End After Its Upcoming Sixth Season

ABC has announced that Professor Annalise Keating (Viola Davis), and those cagey law students of hers, will receive some closure and exciting endings as How to Get Away with Murder will come to a conclusion after its season six. The upcoming 15-episode final season will premiere on Thursday, September 26 at 10 PM.

Series creator Peter Nowalk said in a statement released today: “Deciding to end this series was a brutal decision, but ultimately the story tells you what to do – as it did here.  For me, Annalise Keating’s journey has always had a clear ending.  Knowing I have 15 episodes left to finish her story, and the chance to give all the characters their own killer endings, is a gift rarely given to a series creator and I’m grateful to ABC and ABC Studios for the opportunity and creative freedom. I am so thankful to the brilliant cast, writers and crew for dedicating themselves to the most rewarding experience of my career over the last six years. I also want to thank our fans. The only reason this show exists is because of your loyalty and enthusiasm. I can’t wait for you all to see how it ends, with twists and turns and all the craziness we love to create every Thursday night. Buckle up.”

The final season will follow the perils of Professor Annalise Keating’s class through their final semester in law school with much deceit and murder going along with it!

Karey Burke, President, ABC Entertainment. said in a statement on the conclusion of the series: “Viola Davis made television history with her unforgettable portrayal of iconic female antihero Annalise Keating.  I am eternally grateful to her, Pete Nowalk and Shondaland for creating and bringing to life such a smart, sophisticated and groundbreaking series that has long been an integral part of Thursday nights on ABC.”

How to Get Away with Murder burst on to primetime TV screens back in 2014, and helped formed the Shondaland programming block along with Grey’s Anatomy and Scandal.

The final season stars Davis along with the current cast comprised of: Billy Brown, Jack Falahee, Aja Naomi King, Matt McGorry,, Charlie Weber, Liza Weil Conrad Ricamora, former ‘Bold and the Beautiful’ star Rome Flynn, and Amirah Vann.

Along with the big announcement, ABC released this trailer of the final episodes of the series and its season 6 called “The Beginning of the End”.  Check it out below.

Now, let us know … upset to hear that HTGWM is signing off?  How do you hope it will end for Annalise and her students?  Comment below.

General Hospital

OLTL Favorite Mark Lawson Appears On General Hospital

Viewers of ABC daytime were in a for a surprise (although rumors had been circulating), when former One Life to Live alum, Mark Lawson showed up on Tuesday’s episode of General Hospital.   In it, Mark came on to the Port Charles scene as Dustin Phillips, a man Lulu (Emme Rylan) was meeting with at the Metro Court for her “story” on online dating, and a potential suspect in the home burglaries tied to a dating app.

Meanwhile, while Dante (Dominic Zamprogna) is away originally being deprogrammed from his nightmare in Turkey, Peter (Wes Ramsey) and Maxie (Kirsten Storms) got news from Mac (John J. York) that there may be a lead to his whereabouts in Ithaca, New York,

Maxie is taking it upon herself to locate Dante and bring him back to Lulu.  In addition, when she noticed Lulu enjoying the company of Dustin a bit too much, she was somewhat alarmed that her bff would be having a good time with another man.

It’s been a minute since daytime fans have seen Lawson, who played Navy Seal, Brody Lovett on One Life.  His character was involved with Jessica (Bree Williamson) and all of her alters: Tess, Bess, Wes, et,c and also Jessica’s sister, Natalie (Melissa Archer).

Once fans got wind of his GH appearance, Lawson posted on Instagram along with his workout videos: “Well .. cat’s out of the bag, Stay soapy, my friends.”

So, will Mark continue on GH as a new love interest for Lulu?  Could Dustin be tied to the crimes Lulu is investigating? Would you like to see Lulu move on with her life if Dante is off the canvas for a long time, or do you hope Dominic Zamprogna returns, and there becomes a triangle, or none of the above? Let us know what should happen for Luly in the romance department via the comment section below.
