So earlier this morning we told you that Max Ehrich has been cast as the teenaged, Fenmore Baldwin on The Young and the Restless, and now joining the Genoa City SORAS’d camp is soap newcomer, Lindsay Bushman in the role of a teenaged Summer Newman!

According to CBS Soaps In Depth, Lindsay joins the number one soap as Nick and Phyllis’s daughter and will be seen on-air for the first time on June 11th.

A bit about Bushman … the young actress has done guest spots on Ringer, The Finder, and and even played a young Kate Howard on General Hospital!  Lindsay had also worked as model and can be seen in print ads for Hot Topic and American Apparel, as well as in music videos for Lady Antebellum and Nickelodeon’s teen band, Big Time Rush.

So we ask you, do you think Lindsay bears a resemblance between Michelle Stafford (Phyllis) and Joshua Morrow (Nick)?  Let us know! And, do you think when Summer returns this summer, do you think she will be a good girl or a bad girl?

Seriously???? They JUST showed Summer being told Nick & Phyllis were getting remarried and she was, what, 6?

At this rate Jack’s never seen son, Keemo, should be 55-60. Maybe they should bring him back & hook him up with Sharon instead of this gross Victor hook-up.

Thank you for my laugh of the day-Keemo should be 55-60. TOO FUNNY.

But seriously, this cast is SO BIG, WAAAY TOO BIG-why the hell are they doing this? We already have Chloe, Kevin, Eden, Daniel, Daisy, nuKyle (who I CANNOT stand by the way-he’s like a reincaration of the not so distant Billy plus he looks WAY too much like Adam) and Paul’s son who I cannot name right now but anyway that is the late teen/late 20’s set.

What the hell are they gonna do with a teenage Summer & Fenn? Waste of salaries, airtime, storylines.

I had another thought-aging Summer only makes Phyllis’ latest pregnancy look even more ridiculous-I mean if Daniel is what 30? Summer 15? and now another baby for her? Over the top.

I guess next Sharon will get pregnant by Victor!

Or will Nicki get pregnant by Jack (again)?

Oh I know Harmony will turn up pregnant by Mick (Tucker)

Anybody get my point?

Yeah, I thought it odd that they had Summer on when they were going to age her. This actress actually kinda looks like the girl who had been playing Summer. I don’t like nuKyle. They have given him the wrong attitude. Plus, he really looks like Michael Muhney. I see Gloria said that too. Should have made Kyle a teen, 13-15. Could have still had a lot of story. They are going the wrong way. Well, Daniel won’t have to be married to Daisy long. Lucy will be graduating from HS in 5 years.

summer is a cute child she have her dad smile and he mother good looks and I can not wait to see what nick is going to do now that his little girl is now a teenage will he be all over people who looks at his daughter and I hope they bring up what happen to her half sister and I hope summer will be a good girl and a bad girl too just to keep nick and phyllis on their feet.

It’s quite obvious that since they’re revisiting the Phyllis’ hit and run, the character was rapidly aged so that she could have a proper reaction to the relevation and rebel. Ten bucks says she winds up pregnant with Michael’s grandson.

Woo-hoo. Another Newman on tv.

So now all they need to do is SORAS Moses and Delia.

Yes she does bear a resemblance to Josh and Michelle and Marcy Rylan (Aunt Abby).

Speaking of Newmans – I read that Noah is supposed to be coming back,are they going to use the same actor or recast the part ?

Seems with all the Soras going on , that Y&R is gearing up for some teen summer story lines.

Guess they’ll be giving the “veterans” some time off.

Current SOD says that Kevin Schmidt is coming back in the role. Personally, he was not a favorite of mine.

SUCKS!!!! This is BS!!! The SOARS of Kyle was bad enough, but now Summer too!! Did the writters of Y&R loose their minds!!! NOBODY wants to see this!! I fast forward ALL scenes with Kyle I guess I will do the same thing with the Summer BS as well!!!! I really don’t want to stop watching this soap since I have been watching since the very first day, BUT what’s watching one less soap since ABC SCREWED UP!!!

Soap Smarts: How Daytime Dramas Are Using Ingenuity To Get Back Into Production During COVID-19

Daytime dramas seldom get the credit they deserve, and now they should be getting further credit for being the first back into production as the coronavirus pandemic continues to rage on, and trying to implement new ways to keep their trademarks love scenes, intimate moments and two-person scenes somehow looking in tact; even though it will be far from how it was done in the past.

In the story from the Associated Press The Bold and the Beautiful EP, and head writer, Brad Bell – who’s soap was the first one back into the studio – commented on how the show is utilizing mannequins, or real-life significant others to help pull off close contact love scenes and how it is rather groundbreaking. “We feel almost like television pioneers all these years later because we’re the first ones out, blazing new ways of producing the shows with the current safety standards, and we’re getting the job done. It’s very exciting.”

When B&B scripts written pre-coronavirus were reviewed in preparation for shooting during the pandemic now, originally all the cinches and smooches were cut. But Bell found a solution whereby a remote actor recites lines as their on-camera scene partner responds in a “low, intimate voice” and engages in “beautiful, yearning eye contact” with an off-camera doll.

As far as the soapy embrace or lip-lock, B&B cast member Katrina Bowden (Flo) has had her husband and musician Ben Jorgensen stand in for her on-screen love interest, Darin Brooks (Wyatt) since returning to taping new episodes.

Days of our Lives EP Ken Corday noted to AP:  The “learning curve” is steep. Before the pandemic, “we were producing eight, one-hour episodes a week. That’s basically 40 or 50 scenes a day.  That’s going to be basically impossible to reopen, so to speak, at that pace. We’re going to have to be more careful. So will there be five shows a week, or more? Yet to be determined.  It will certainly cost more.”

B&B and now Y&R which heads back into production next week, and the others soaps, will be using the company called Reel Health, which launched in response to the COVID-19 pandemic to serve the entertainment industry, and hires medically trained workers to monitor sets and enforce protocols developed by a company epidemiologist and in accordance with industry and government standards,

Alicia Rodis, a veteran intimacy coordinator who helped the actors guild develop guidelines for taping scenes of romance and simulated sex. shared: “Finding ways to put romance on the screen is inevitable and necessary.  At the end of the day, intimacy isn’t going anywhere. Physical intimacy is a part of the human experience. And we’re going to have to find a way to be able to continue to tell these stories, even in extraordinary circumstances.”

So, what do you think of how soaps are tackling taping episodes in the new normal to give their fans a sense of all that they love from their favorite daytime dramas during COVID-19? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
