Things will certainly be picking up in Ashley’s  (Eileen Davidson) fragrance lab in Genoa City!  Awhile back, we reported that The Young and the Restless put out a casting call for a quirky, yet underhanded lab tech, named Tobias!  Well, the number one soap has found their man in actor Jeffrey Christopher Todd!

According to CBS Soaps In Depth, Todd has been cast as the new guy who will mix it up with Ashley and perhaps previously announced Gwen, when he begins airing in his recurring role on December 5th!

Todd has appeared in Disney Channel’s Wizards of Waverly Place and ABC Family’s Switched At Birth among other numerous film, television and stage credits.

So, ready for some Tobias on Y&R?  Share your thoughts below!

He looks somewhat like CD who played Chad at Days and probably couldve done well in that part but d.g.m.w. i do like nuChad who is Dimera-ish…sorry to slightly get off topic…he’ll probably be interested in Summer???

I like nuChad (Billy Flynn) too. He reminds me of a young Nicolas Cage. No one can replace James Scott, but Billy Flynn, if given the correct scene partner, will help fill the void.

PV, he does look like N.C.,…i didnt notice at first til you mentioned it and when i checked him out again i did notice the resembalance!!!

Jim, I am hoping he would be interested in Mariah. I honestly find Summer to be incredibly boring despite the infinite ongoing speculation about her paternity.
I like the kid’s looks–he is handsome without being cookie cutter perfect–he’s unique looking.

It could happen, Harry…but i actually like Kevin with Mariah…instant chemistry…jmo!!!

I kind of wanted Bradford (Spinelli, GH) but figured it would be a no go. Too many were expecting it and upset that Jill was bringing over GH people like Burton. As an actor, I would think Bradford would want to try different types of roles. Not familiar with this guy, which for me personally gives me a “blah” as there are so many out of work soap actors that I like. Having said that, he looks cute and I can’t judge him or the role till I see it. Hope YR doesn’t keep going the direction of Days w/ the new characters, but maybe this one will turn out good.

I guess if Gwen is quirky it could be a cute romance but other than that he probably wont have a major impact on the show.

This guy is very cute and boyish, just like me. But I am way cuter and I have full lips and a nice smile. Hope this new dude can act, I wish him the very best in his new soap role.

I hear wedding bells for him and Kevin !!!!!!

I’m disappointed to read that Trent Dawson, ex-Henry from ATWT didn’t get it….

he would have been PERFECT with Ashley…. light, comedic, turn for turn he’d a brung it

I could have imagined him even with Gloria !!!! LOL
and Ashley
and Victoria

just studly with comical : daresay HE did romance BIG with Babs…

speaking of ATWT : ex-Meg… starred in Salem yesterday ( DAYS)…. she looked smoking HOT with Daniel Cosgrove’ Aiden

Smeg doesn’t do anything for me not on ATWT and not on days

whoa…
Y&R.. It is being recreated, into what??
New;
Gwen, Todd , Joe , Sage , and ..?
not to mention;
Maureen, new Kelly, Austin
And!
New Billy, New Phyllis, New Adam ..
And-
New head writer Pratt ..

I hardly realize Y&R– this past year has been horrible..

GH is being recreated into what?
New: Sabrina, Brittney Rosalie, Jordan, Dr. O, Madeline, Nina, Ava, Kiki, Silas, mini characters such as Spencer, Cameron , Emma and Josselyn.
Recasts: Jason and Franco
I hardly recognize GH.

Su00, I am not saying your complaint is without merit, but I am saying you seem to be employing a double standard. When folks complained about GH’s bloated cast you defended it again and again by saying that change is good, that it’s exciting, and that the veterans needed a break. And Y&R has not been horrible–it is getting better. Certainly there is room for improvement on both Y&R and GH.

Hey Y&R — you know what would be super cool? If you wrote story for the core characters instead of bringing on more new people.

Just sayin’…

Perhaps he will be involved in selling lab secrets to Jabot competition– or better yet use the new fragrance to attract girls who scorned him in the past to like him.

I had also expected to hear that Bradford Anderson would get the role being a FOJ and a close friend of Steve Burton’s.
Yes, way too many characters on Y&R.
This used to be the show that kept its vets and had them front and center.

I like the guy who plays noah why can’t he be Ashley’s lab guy he needs a real story all he does is recap it’s too bad he’s cute too

Y&R’s Brad(GH)..A new character that’s most likely gay and a bit skeevie…the question is…who will he go after??? And why does he look like Daniel?? Did Daniel go off and Daisy cut his face up and he had reconstructive surgery and lost his memory??? LOL!!!

‘Santa Barbara’ Episodes May See Light of Day Yet; Will the Beloved Soap Opera Come to Streaming?

For decades, soap opera fans around the world have wanted a chance to see Santa Barbara episodes again. The soap, which first aired on NBC back on July 30, 1984 aired for only 9 seasons until the network pulled the plug after diminishing ratings and multiple changes in writing and producing regimes. The show last aired on January 15th, 1993.

Santa Barbara was co-created and initially produced and co-written by the legendary team of Bridget and Jerome Dobson. At the recent 51st annual Daytime Emmys, Jerome was honored with the Gold Circle medal for his over 50 years of work and accomplishments within the medium. Sadly his wife, Bridget passed away earlier this year in January at the age of 85.

The show featured an all-star soap cast throughout its run which included, at times: Marcy Walker, A Martinez, Dame Judith Anderson, Robin Wright, Justin Deas, Eileen Davidson, Lane Davies, Nancy Lee Grahn, Kim Zimmer, Jack Wagner, Jed Allan, Louise Sorel. Judith McConnell, Roscoe Born, Sydney Penny, Todd McKee, Terry Lester, Justin Gocke, Nicolas Coster and many more.

During a livestream conversation on Friday, June 21st, Jerome Dobson and A Martinez visited the Michael Fairman Channel to reminisce about the success and ups and downs of Santa Barbara and much more.

Many people in the live chat and many around the world (Santa Barbara was very popular internationally) have wanted to know with the legal issues it appears had plagued the show for years, if there would be a chance that fans could ever see Santa Barbara episodes again, and if they could become available or streamed?

Dobson shared exclusively, “Well, there’s some legal footwork being done right now about that kind of possibility. There’s been so much demand to see Santa Barbara, and so it’s not totally out of the question.” Martinez (ex-Cruz Castillo) reaction to that possibility was that of “Wow!” That was also the same reaction by several viewers watching the live conversation in the chat, because that would be a soap dream come true for many.

So, do you hope that the legalities can finally be worked out and you could relive the seasons of ‘Santa Barbara’ all over again? Let us know in the comment section below. You can check out the live chat with A and Jerome below, the moment happens around the 56:18 mark.

Ryan Paevey Makes Statement on Why He is Stepping Back from Acting While Being ‘Grateful to General Hospital for Giving a Green Actor a Chance’ and ‘Hallmark for Changing My Life’

GH and Hallmark fan favorite, Ryan Paevey (ex-Nathan West) wanted to clear the air after numerous reports and rumors had him quitting acting altogether and what that meant for any future projects in Hollywood he may have had planned.

Paevey released an exclusive statement to Heavy.com where he shared what is going on in his life. Back on June 19th, Ryan deactivated his Twitter and Facebook accounts and he may have deactivated his Instagram account on Friday as well, or as of this writing.

For Ryan, the decision to change his current life’s trajectory came after a series of events; chief among them moving closer to home to take care of his ailing mother who is battling lung cancer and social media scammers.

Here is what Ryan shared: “Hey everyone…so first and foremost, I am a bit apprehensive that I even have to make a statement like this. I am certainly accustomed to a certain degree of gossip, but the past few weeks in particular have gotten out of control with speculation from third parties that have taken my words and expanded upon them to meet their narrative, or flat out misrepresented my words or misconstrued their meaning. I have always been an open book, and one who speaks his mind truthfully and directly, and it is unfortunate that we live in a world where social media makes it very easy to twist one’s words; I am often unaware it is even happening until someone from my team messages me in a panic, and so I feel it best to make a formal statement through HEAVY.”
