Jason Canela Announces He Is Exiting The Young and the Restless

Photo Credit: JPI Studios

While currently involved on-screen in romantic trouble between Abby (Melissa Ordway) and Mia (Noemi Gonzalez),  Jason Canela (Arturo) took to social media Monday morning to share the news that he is departing the CNS Daytime drama series.

In his post, Canela says: “I feel blessed to have been a part of something so special! I appreciate each and every single person that makes up part of the family! Our makeup team, our crew, our security! Without them there is nothing  The team behind the camera is what makes it all worth it.”

This came on top of his Jason’s post which expressed: “When I signed my 1 year contract with Y&R I was excited because for the first time in 3 years living in this city I was able to call a studio like ‘Television City’ home.  Add to that the incredible people I’ve had the pleasure of working with to create genuine relationships with … like Peter Bergman,Melissa Ordway, Jordi Vilasuso, Sasha Calle and Noemi Gonzalez  just to name a few. (Sorry guys, but Peter is my favorite).  I feel blessed to have been part of something so special like The Young and the Restless family.  It’s time to turn the page and see what beautiful stories I am blessed enough to be part of next.  I want to send all my love and positive vibes to the Y&R fans who have been so welcoming since day 1! Appreciate the love and no worries, The Rosales family will still be cooking up some drama in Genoa City, so keeping looking out for them, and showing them all the love they deserve.”

No airdate at this time has been given for Canela’s last appearance on Y&R.

I liked him and his character and was hoping for more story. I suspect, with the new regime at Y&R, he won’t be alone in the unemployment line.

He signed a one-year contract, which means that he was only on the show for a year?? It feels to me like the Rosales family has been on the show for EONS, which may be due to their constant presence on every episode and my disliking of the entire family. It doesn’t say who made the decision. Did the actor decide to move on, or did the show opt not to renew his contract? Either way, I hope this is the beginning of the entire Rosales clan leaving the show. I wish the actor success —- in another role on… Read more »

Don’t know why they had to ruin everything with an affair with Mia. He changed so much with Abby but that woman just never seems to have good luck. He’s a good actor and was good to see a Latino family grow (minus Mia) and hope that YnR keeps the diversity going. Best wishes to him for great success in the near future.

Yes, him sleeping with Mia seems out of left field. I guess they had to find a way to get him to leave.

You know, I wouldn’t say that those two sleeping together was out of left field. That’s all they spoke of from the time they ascended on GC. First Rey telling about his wife and brother and than, every time Mia and Arturo were together, she’d eat him up with her eyes, and he couldn’t look away. Mia was married to Rey, but she wanted Arturo too, which made it so disgusting. Even Rey, once he had feelings for Sharon, which he chose to deny, he still stayed with Mia, instead of sending her ass packing, tried to make the marriage… Read more »

I wonder if the role will be recast? I’m not sure how to feel about this since I know there have been alot of resentments against the Rosales family. They aren’t Newmans or Abbotts so to me, I see them as just OK.

Momo
Guest

I don’t mind them too much; I just don’t need to see them on the show every day, which they were. Integrate them slowly. Don’t hit us over the head with them to the detriment of others (Neil, Paul, Dina, etc.).

the bunch of them were working for peanuts compared to the rest of the original cast. the whole story line was around them so Y&R could save a bundle. Abby cannot keep a partner ’cause she cannot do a bedroom scene. never seen such a good looking girl fumble up a bedroom scene as bad as her

Bart

So long – you and your character were neither necessary nor relevant to the GC canvas.

Hopefully the rest of your ill-conceived TV family will follow suit.

Damien
Guest
Damien

Your comment is the unnecessary one.
He and Abby made a beautiful couple.
The Rosales family is revelant because as you can see in society there are people made up of all economic classes
I hope Rey, Mia and Lola stay. Genoa city characters cant sleep within just two families and become incestual.

margherita
Guest

I agree 100%! Think of the Rearden Family on Guiding Light. As well as the Santos Family. Or the Snyders on As The World Turns. The Newmans and Abbotts have so much freaking money. We need there to be real life scenarios that are relatable extended into the Genoa City world that will balance out the economic status of the Y and R characters/families as well as the cultural diversity of 2019 that is so important. The mistake was that Mal Young brought them all in way too quickly so that we couldn’t connect with their integration while pushing out… Read more »

So it was his choice? I guess that’s why they had Arturo sleep with Mia.

Hey, Violet, True, that….no one is “pristine” on soaps….but, I think Kay may be referring to the character, not the actor. I don’t know—I have neither a Twitter nor Facebook account. Mia, certainly brought the character down a few pegs—I detest cheaters. I, myself, never took to Arturo…..I love Lola and Rey is sort of growing on me, now that he’s being honest with himsef. I must wonder if he and Sharon will get anywhere romantically. Her past with Nick will always be looming between them; both physically and emotionally……as usual. Oh, and…I get weird vibes coming from Ana’s ‘father”… Read more »

Celia, Kay’s comment just ruffled this old hen’s feathers. From what I could make of it, it was meant towards J.C, not Arturo. I think that his character was a little full of himself, swooping in to romance Nicki, than Abby, than Mia, of whom he’d already cheated on with once before. He acted like he was God’s gift to women. I would like to see him and Mia leave town, but if by chance she really is pregnant, that will raise the question of who the father is. Rey hasn’t told Sharon this news yet, so that may be… Read more »

You’re right, Miss Violet…..I had forgotten about Arturo and Nikki……which reenforces my point that Abby should have been ‘en garde’. LOL. Most importanlty, Arturo’s behavior left much to be desired. Too bad for Abby….I wonder if she has learned anything this time around. When I first heard Brytni was coming to Y&R, I thought the same thing. A girl for Devon, or a new Lily. I am not saying Ana’s father is an imposter exactly….but, he could be trying to take advantage of Devon…..wants a piece of his “cake”? I hope I am wrong…..but, why introduce them if there were… Read more »

Celia, O.k, you put the idea into my head about Ana’s father and cousin, so I will be watching those two more intently. Another possibility is maybe this cousin, I can’t remember her character name, will become interested in Nate, both doctors, who lives right across the hall, might even get to work with him at the hospital. Oh my, all kinds of possibilities. I was hoping that Ana’s dad might fill the space that Neil has left, once they address his death in May. Wonder if Lily will return, minus Cain, I hope. Sure haven’t missed him lately. I… Read more »

I wondered if the new producing/writing team would dismantle Mal Young’s new family and, it seems that may be the case, yes? I am hoping for some stabilizing in Genoa City, but I was not opposed to integration of a new family. The Rosales clan just seemed not to win our hearts before falling into deep drama. Will Arturo leave with Mia? If Paul fires Rey from the police department, what is left for him? Lola? Seems Kyle may just fall in love with Summer after all. I do not like to see actors lose opportunities.

Harry
Guest
Harry

Yes, I think you’re right. It’s not that I dislike the Rosales family, (okay, I hate Mia with the heat of a thousand suns but I guess I am supposed to hate her )it’s that they were rapidly and awkwardly introduced. And Mal Young was doing something really odd, creepy and out-of-character with Victor and Nikki agreeing to an open marriage. Our first impression of young Arturo is with him hooking up with Mrs. Newman hours after he first met her. Through no fault of the actor’s, he didn’t make a good first impression, and that can be a hard… Read more »

I’m not happy about Arturo not being on the screen, but it is what it is..

I’m sure he’ll be seen in other shows, and- good for Jason Canela to get out and moving on before it’s too late.

The character was never added to the opening credits (nor anyone in his tv family)…I don’t see any of them being long term, unless the new head writer has different plans in mind. New EP & HW normally cut loose characters they don’t need.

This really sucks I was thoroughly enjoying the Rosales siblings dynamics . It was a breath of fresh air. Was hoping the Abby / Arturo/Mia/Rey affairs would continue, especially the sexual tension between ‘Arturrrro’ and Mia. Also thought Abby finally found her true love with Arturo. I know fans didnt want a new fam taking time away from faves however for the show to continue younger new families have to be introduced, the vets arent getting any younger. Too bad , Jason was rugged , good looking had good chemistry with the ladies and the character was different than other… Read more »

OMG
I think I liked Arturo and sister Loala, as he said it the best. Rather Mia, and Rey were leaving. Jason was probably as sick of his part as we were. First his gig with Nicki, and than being pulled into Mia’s black web. I don’t know whether I see her as a spider or a vulture.’ Either way she’s disgusting. Arturo was his own worst enemy, poor guy, didn’t stand a chance. Adious, and good luck.

Iakovos

I do not care for the Mia character either. The classic bad girl who is misunderstood/social climbing but doing it all wrong is a classic soap trope (Carly ATWT) but we did not see any good in Mia from the start. She just hit the ground running. I believe characters have to earn their love or hate and respect from viewers. That is the writers’ job. If we could understand Mia better, I think she would gain more sympathy and be the girl we love to hate. Sadly, not going that way.

Violet Lemm
Guest
Violet Lemm

I too watched ATWT, and yes, once we were able to understand why Carly was the way she was, her childhood, etc., we were also able to understand her destructive behaviors better.
This Mia, just came in like gangbusters, in your face, everything all about her, I can’t stand her and never will. Maybe she will go with Arturo, but I can’t stand Sharon and Rey together either.

Harry
Guest
Harry

Violet, I couldn’t agree with you more. I hate the way Mia trots around holding her little arms folded up against her body–she reminds me of Tyrannosaurus Rex in a cocktail dress, barging through coffee houses, restaurants, apartments, and mansions looking for something or someone to grab.

I thought he was really good in his role with Abby. I love the Rosales family and the added diversity they brought to GC. Soaps must reflect today in cities in Canada and the USA. Very very disappointed and the slightly not so slightly racist comments these actors have had to put up with on pages such as this absolutely disgust me but it reaffirms my opinion of a good many Americans who yell free speech when it is obviously hate speech.

It may have been his decision to leave. He is a young guy who wants to spread his wings. I think the Rosales family would have been accepted, if Mal Young didn’t place them front and center so quickly. Also, Mal sectioned them off. Yes, Lola had Mariah and Tessa, but where were the friends for Mia, Rey and Arturo? They could still work, but blend them into GC and don’t hate me, but I wouldn’t be surprised if there is a recast for Mia, if she is written out.

Now I suddenly LOVE Abby! She is hilarious. The actress who plays her is not just drop gorgeous, she has this inherent comedic talent. No, Arturo, don’t take Abby with you. However, feel free to take your sister-in-law with you and her rolling suitcase full of cheap make-up samples. Bye, Felicia! Bye Mama Mia! Don’t let the door hit you!

As the World Turns and Guiding Light Favorite, Lisa Brown, Passes Away at 67

(UPDATED) In just more heartbreaking news in the soap world in 2021, we have lost another beloved performer.  Lisa Brown, who was so noteworthy for her spunky and emotional turns as Guiding Light’s Nola Reardon from 1980-1985, and later as Iva Snyder on As the World Turns from 1986-1994, has died.

Brown passed away this week on November 24th at the age of 67 following a brief illness.  The news came via the As the World Turns Facebook Fan Group and Soap Opera Digest.

This comes just two months later following the death of her former on-screen love interest Michael Tylo (Ex-Quinton, Guiding Light), who passed away in late September.

Those that followed Lisa’s career know she also starred in the Broadway Musical 42nd Street, while still playing Nola each and every day on Guiding Light.

She is survived by her children: James “Buddy” Nielsen, and daughter Victoria from her first husband Tom Nielsen (Ex-Floyd, GL) in addition to her two grandchildren, Penelope Ruiz-Nielsen and Brayden Hopf, and her second husband Brian Neary.

Brown’s on-screen ATWT daughter, Martha Byrne  (Ex-Lily) simply tweeted, “My heart is broken.”

On Friday, Lisa’s son, Buddy Nielsen, posted a touching tribute to his mother, where he revealed that she passed away due to cancer.

Buddy shared: “My Mom passed away the day before Thanksgiving after a very quick battle with cancer. This all happened really fast and wasn’t expecting it. I’ve been MIA as I’ve been back and forth between LA and NJ as she has been in and out of the hospital the last couple weeks. This dream we live, we are all subject to the suffering, aging and death. It’s not to be morose but to understand that we have finite time and must take care with what we do and how we do it. To be able to be with someone at their last breath is truly beautiful. We must not fear death as without it we would never be born and experience the 10,000 joys and 10,000 sorrows. Our existence is both small and vast all at the same time. We are tiny but immense. I know she is here but no longer in her physical form, what we do in love we leave in death. My beautiful daughter and unborn son are her legacy.”

Share your condolences to Lisa’s family, and let us know of your remembrances of this wonderful actress who gave us so many memorable moments throughout her career via the comment section below. But first, watch Lisa in some of her classic scenes from ATWT and GL.

Steve Burton Confirms His Exit From General Hospital

Steve Burton has spoken and after so much speculation, the two-time Daytime Emmy-winning star has confirmed he is out as General Hospital’s Jason Morgan.

In his post on his Instagram account on Tuesday, Steve shared that he was let go by the ABC daytime drama series due to their vaccine mandate and that even though he applied for medical and religious exemptions those were denied.  Thus, he has to exit his role.

In story, viewers saw on Monday, that Jason is MIA from being under the rubble of the cave that collapsed in Jason’s attempt to apprehend Peter August (Wes Ramsey).

In his post, Burton shared the following: “I know there has been a lot of rumors and speculations about me and General Hospital and I wanted you to hear it from me, personally. Unfortunately, General Hospital has let me go because of the vaccine mandate. I did apply for my medical and religious exemptions and both of those were denied, which, you know, hurts, but, this is also about personal freedom to me. I don’t think anyone should lose their livelihood over this. But with that being said, you know me. I’ll always be grateful for my time at General Hospital I love it there. I grew up there. I grew up with some of you, so I will always be grateful and I believe when one door closes multiple doors open. That’s always been my perspective, so I am excited to see what the future brings. ”

Steve went on to say, “Maybe one day when these mandates are lifted, I can return and finish my career as Jason Morgan. That would be an honor, and if not, I am going to take this amazing experience, move forward and be forever grateful. I have got to say, that I am forever grateful for your love and your support over the years. It means so much to me. Thank you. I don’t know when my last airdate is. It may have aired or it might be tomorrow or the next day. I am not sure. I want you guys to have an awesome Thanksgiving. I know it is hard, maybe, in this type of situation to be thankful or grateful, but we have so many things to be thankful about. Being grateful really is the key. Love you guys.”

The popular actor began his run as GH’s Jason Quartermaine back in 1991. Later in 1995, after a car accident he had a major personality shift and became Jason Morgan. Burton went to Y&R to play Dylan McAvoy for a four-year stint from 2013-2017, before heading back to his home at GH.

A source close to the show told Deadline that Burton’s last tape date was October 27th.

You can watch Steve’s video announcement below on his GH departure.

So, how do you feel about Steve being let go from GH? Do you hope Steve can return at some point? Share your thoughts via the comment section below,
