Jason Canela Reveals: “I’m Proud And Honored To Officially Be A Full-Time Member Of The Young and the Restless Family”

Former telenovela star, Jason Canela (Arturo) is staying put in Genoa City.  Canela, who is of Cuban descent, was originally brought on to The Young and the Restless as a building contractor, who winds up being the boy toy of none other than Nikki Newman (Melody Thomas Scott).

Later, his story switched and Arturo has now been romancing and paired with Nikki’s stepdaughter, Abby Newman (Melissa Ordway).

Now as Arturo becomes more entrenched in the Newman clan, Canela posted on his Instagram account that the CBS soap has signed him on as a contract player.

Jason expressed: “I’ve always believed that there are two types of artists. There are working ones and blessed ones. Thankfully I’ve had an incredible support system to always motivate me and help me push forward no matter how tough things got while I was working to become a better version of me so that one day I could be blessed. To every artist out there who feels discouraged because they have not booked that role or gotten that verse picked up in a track just remember that our line of work is not the easiest but if you truly love it then you know that if you continue to PUT IN THE WORK one day you will be blessed. Thank you to Mal Young, Sony, CBS & The Young and the Restless for believing in me and making me feel at home in Genoa city and blessing me with the opportunity to bring life to Arturo Rosales. I’m proud and honored to officially be a full time member of the The Young and the Restless family.” #Blessed #EnjoyEveryMoment

Hi, Meg,
How? What has Arturo done so far to make him the best thing for anyone?? But, for the sake or argument, elucidate….I mean this in the nicest way….Not trying to be ‘snarky’ or anything. Honest!!
He came into town and ‘slipped’, ahemmm, in bed with Nikki at the first opportunity….or shall I say ‘invitation’??
Regardless, he was quite aware Nikki AND HER SON were his employers, and that she was much older, and out of his league….
AND, married to the most powerful man in town and beyond.
He completely disrespected every rule under the sun by crossing innumerable lines….
When that relationship went up in smoke, he targeted Nikki’s stepdaughter….Victor Newman’s daughter!! Best thing?
Also, my feeling is ( again, I hope I am wrong because the show does need diversity and a “pick-me-up) Arturo has no sister…. if it is his true sister, then, a part of a band of thieves….
Not only that, but Jordi will be part of the “Ali Baba-open Sesame” brotherhood. Ha!!

Guess they’re following the GH playbook, k/kay, because, hey, that has been such a smashing success in propelling the show all the way to fourth place! Having said that, this actor dude would have made a perfect offspring for Sonny C…

A Morgan recast.

Shay

@Timmm…Nah, this guy doesn’t look whiny, immature or dimwitted enough to play the role of Morgan….he seems to have a more suave, self-possessed vibe…like a young Sonny! Besides it’s been awhile since a new Corinthois spawn has surfaced in Port Charles…long overdue according to schedule!

Celia

Not this guy, for sure, Kay. I trust your judgment completely…..and I hang on to your every word, my friend.
I cannot see this guy as having longevity on Y&R…..get rid of him and bring back Noah!!
I will say it again; whether I am proven wrong or not, Arturo is trouble….and, as usual, Abby will get hurt.

Diversity, yes BUT talent to!Then they have this actress who portrays Hillary that is talented and she will soon be gone!

I don’t mind Arturo, at least when he’s reasonably clean shaven. Mr. Canela is an attractive, relaxed, competent actor who has room to grow. Just keep him away from the Barracuda known as Nikki Newman. One quibble: can’t they also/instead bring Robert Adamson back and find a story for Noah? He grew so much as an actor, is beyond handsome, and the character is part of Genoa City’s core family. They found niches for Mariah and Abby, why not sweet Noah? Seems to me a perfect time to appoint him VP of Dark Horse.

Oh, I agree. The four core Newmans are all so flawed. I do root for Nick as I am weary of pointless Victor shenanigans, Nikki waffling, and Victoria lacking a spine. Noah had a conscience and good spirit about him (Thank you, Sharon!) that provides balance to this family. I would like to see the core families shored up not torn down… and yes, I am hating the Jack paternity plot. Really?

So glad to hear you have given a contract, love watching you. Hope blessings come your way.

Yes! Hadnt seen him on screen in a week or so and then read that Jordi from days was cast and i was scared he was a recast Arturo. Glad the original is staying to continue the Abby romance and to portray a working class character in genoa city

Thinking Rey is Arturos older brother ,Hope his younger sister Lola comes too.

I think this is a fantastic decision. I really like Jason Canela, and am real happy with his portrayal of Arturo. This is going to be fantastic fun. Love seeing diversity come into play in daytime! Cannot wait to see where this is now going to get Arturo in terms of story and character development!

Kevin C

I agree with you Scott and I hope they bring some of his family members on the show…

I have a feeling that’s who Jordi Vilasuso is going to be playing!

Congrats Jason. Well deserved !!!

Seems like a good guy and I love to see someones hard work pay off but unless he is tied to a historical character OR they bring in his family, I dont care about Arturo! Remember, they made this same mistake with Luca. They could have brought in his family and his father and Victor could have went toe to toe!

Bart

Bland and boring – then again, in these PC times, we have to add ‘color’ to the GC canvas, don’t we…????

California Gov. Gavin Newsom Reveals TV & Film Production Restart June 12th; But May Not Include LA County

There was some significant signs that Hollywood and the state of California’s show business production looks to be gearing up for a restart after all TV and film production was halted a few months ago as the coronavirus pandemic hit the state, our country, and the globe.

The reopening for production may not include L.A. County, however, which is the epicenter of the state’s show business production.

According to Deadline: On Friday, Governor Gavin Newsom announced that the state could begin TV and film production as early as June 12th.  While the California Department of Public Health released the following guidelines:  “Music, TV and film production may resume in California, recommended no sooner than June 12, 2020 and subject to approval by county public health officers within the jurisdictions of operations following their review of local epidemiological data including cases per 100,000 population, rate of test positivity, and local preparedness to support a health care surge, vulnerable populations, contact tracing and testing. To reduce the risk of COVID-19 transmission, productions, cast, crew and other industry workers should abide by safety protocols agreed by labor and management, which may be further enhanced by county public health officers. Back office staff and management should adhere to Office Workspace guidelines published by the California Department of Public Health and the California Department of Industrial Relations, to reduce the risk of COVID-19 transmission.”

For LA County,  on Friday, the same day the guidelines were announced they saw a slight increase in hospitalizations, which could cause delays in getting production started.  “This has been a slight increase over the last three days in the number of people hospitalized,” said Los Angeles County Public Health Director Barbara Ferrer, “and we’ll need to make sure that we’re not starting to see a significant increase in the number of people requiring hospitalizations.”

Newsom has said modifications to regional guidance would be allowed so long as there are attestations at the county level that there are adequate plans in place should a rise in COVID cases be seen again.   As of May 18, when L.A. filed its attestation, the county had a stable or declining number of patients hospitalized for COVID-19.   However, there has been an uptick in cases as of Friday which could effect the production restart in Hollywood as well as the noted uptick in hospitalizations; all of which are measures in the protocol guidelines that need to be on the decline for things to move forward.

So the question remains: if there is a surge in Los Angeles in COVID-19 cases production could again be delayed getting started back up and running? So what do you think about the June 12th date for the state of California to start TV and film production? Do you hope your favorite soaps get back into production as soon as possible, or do you want to make extra sure that all your favorites will be safe and sound when they tape new episodes?

Hollywood Studios, Producers & Guilds Send Plan To Gov. Newsom and Gov. Cuomo For COVID-19 Production Restart Guidelines

On Monday, the two states with the most television and film production in the United States (California and New York) received a plan from many Hollywood studios, producers and the entertainment and production guilds of a plan and outline to be able to rejigger and restart production of your favorite shows and films.  This includes the soaps: General Hospital, The Young and the Restless, The Bold and the Beautiful and Days of our Lives.

Via Deadline: In an effort to get the industry moving-forward again where jobs were lost or put on hold, and production were completely stalled out-of-the-blue, the guidelines submitted by “The Industry-Wide Labor-Management Safety Committee Task Force (the “Task Force”) is asking for consideration and adoption for the resumption of motion picture, television, and streaming productions in an environment that minimizes the risk of contracting or spreading COVID-19,” says a report for Governors Gavin Newsom of California and Andrew Cuomo of New York.

You can read the details of the report here.  While there has been no word from the Governors and their offices if they have seen the report, bets are that several more steps will be needed before anyone would head and report back to a set yet.

As one would expect, limiting contact, social distancing, regular temperature checks, ways to handle props, and a COVID-19 compliance officer for all productions are part of the proposal.   As well as virtual writers room meetings, avoiding filming on-location as much as possible and filming in front of large audiences.

So, glad to know that this major step has been taken to try to get production back on track in Hollywood and New York? Comment below.

British Soap ‘Coronation Street’ Set To Resume Production Next Week Following COVID-19 Shutdown

Will American soaps soon follow the Brits, and be able to start up your favorite soap towns again? While production entities await for guidelines from the state of California and the city of Los Angeles, across the bond, ITV’s Coronation Street has set next Tuesday, June 9th to begin filming new episodes of the popular drama.

Coronation Street had been on  10-week mandatory shutdown due to the coronavirus pandemic sweeping our globe.  The return to start up the show keeps the soap on-air throughout July and then ongoing.  There will be three episodes filmed each week at their studios in Manchester.

Along with ITV’s Emmerdale, and  other programs, Coronation Street is returning to production under the UK’s guidelines and  safety protocols for COVID-19.

According to Deadline that will include: crew members designated to a specific studio or exterior lot  …  social distancing will be observed … cast and crew will have daily temperature checks, while older and more vulnerable members of the team won’t be part of the new episodes during the initial period of filming.

In a statement, John Whiston, ITV’s managing director of continuing drama, said: “Getting to this point has taken a huge amount of work and goodwill from a huge number of people, not least our cast and crew. With the peak past, all indications are that the time is right for a return to filming.  And with the extensive protocols we have put in place, we have made our workplace as safe as possible. I’m sure our audience will appreciate having the show they love continue on air. For many who have written in it is a vital escape from all the fears and stresses this virus brings in its wake.”
