Mara McCaffrey Joins the Cast of The Young and the Restless!

Kevin’s (Greg Rikaart) hacker friend is about to join him in Genoa City!  Casting news out of CBS Soaps In Depth has that actress Mara McCaffrey has been cast in the recurring role of Natalie, formerly known during the casting call as “Isla”.

Natalie is described as “a tech wiz with a passion for cyber life.”   And this week on Y&R, Mariah (Camyrn Grimes) tried to find out more about the female hacker Kevin met in Switzerland, while Billy (Burgess Jenkins) overheard Kevin telling Mariah about his new idea to enable computers to be hacker-proof.   In addition, Noah (Robert Adamson) had asked Kevin to dig up dirt on the Santori family.  So, it would seem the appearance of Natalie would tie-in perfectly with these story set-ups.

Look for McCaffrey to first appear on Y&R on the January 15th episode of the number one soap opera.   

Will Natalie give Mariah a run for the money for the heart of Kevin? Will two computers whizzes find love? Share your thoughts in the comment section below!

My initial thought was that she looks A LOT like Elizabeth Hendrickson, especially in that picture.

I told my husband that she looks like Chloe (Elizabeth Hendrickson).

Great, just what Y&R needs is another useless character with no links to Genoa City.

I agree, Mateo, albeit I must admit the girl is gorgeous. Her face beautifully sculpted. But, I do not think she resembles Elizabeth H one bit…sorry, guys. I was hoping they were bringing Mackenzie back. I thought it would be she. I am so sick of the mystery and stupid suspense of this Spanish family with an Italian name. Sick of these cyber games with dilettantes trying to infiltrate corporate espionage. Give me my soap back.

Cee, I agree, WHO GAF! I love Kevin but he gets some of the silliest stories EVER! Mac would be great to have back! The Chancelor name is gone! Why dont they stop with all these nickel and dimers and bring back Mac, Phillip, Tucker, ect and make the Chanclelor name relevant again? I so agree with you on Marissa and her greasy lover who needs a major haircut. WHY are they even on the show? Because of Noah? Noah works at a bar, he can meet a chick every night! Well, maybe not, they have about as many people… Read more »

She is only recurring and she is useful because of the computer hack story and to make Mariah jealous.

Don’t you feel like saying, “Whoopee-doo!!”, Timmm? Who cares, really!? It will only makes a stupid storyline stupider. Why couldn’t they have made her Mackenzie? ……would have been so much more interesting; with a real, honest-to-goodness story to tell. I know you want a meatier story as much as I do, my Timmmbo. Bye.

a triangle involving kevin, mariah and a newbie!?
pratt needs to bring back austin somehow because maraih/ austin/ summer was really hot!
summer needs to be on more and her and mariah have a natural distaste for eachother.
austin was gorgeous and his death was unnecesary, as was his off the screen romance with abby.considering how anticlimatic the cabin mystery played out.
romances involving kevin are usually more comedic relief . janna was really the only believable love intrest of his

Timmm

Not knocking your opinion but you are in the minority when it comes to Summer being on the show. It has been an early Christmas present not having her on! Every scene shes in she has a sour look on her face like someone just, well you know! I did like Austin but he is dead! Now if this was GH Austin would reappear just like that!

Nikki

OMG How I agree nooooo don’t bring back Summer. She was snooze time and was so out of the league for a Nick/Phyllis daughter. Actually when I first saw this new girl with this beautiful face and tiny features I thought “why could they not have made her Summer”?

Nanci
Guest

I am enjoying the Summer-free soap and dont miss her a bit, but
you would think someone (Phyllis maybe?) would at least reference
her absence in some way, and Kyle, too, actually. Unless I just missed it.

Timmm

Yeah, if you needed to recast Chloe this girl looks like a ringer! Anyhow, yeah, this is cool. She is cute and it makes sense to start a love triangle to make Mariah jealous. I only ask two things and one is that she can act and two, yes, I’ll take ANYONE on the screen thats not Summer, Kyle, Stitch, Lilly, Hillary, Neal or Devon!

hey Timmm..
I have coded my PC to automatically FF ; Devon, Hillary, Sharon, Neal and Summer and Phyllis when she is being a freakout harsh .
And I gotta tell you- it has been great, absolutely great !

(I have been contemplating adding Dylan to the auto list if he doesn’t shape up into someone interesting, he is sorta a blob.)

I blew through Thursday’s show and for the fun of it read the recap and I fell asleep!

CeeCee

No, no, no, Timmm!!!!First of all, this girl looks young enough to be Chloe’s daughter. Secondly, the features are all wrong. Both pretty, but this girl beats Elizabeth by a mile. I think it’s only the guys that have this same thought. I bet not the women…..All of you need to be smacked upside the head. Lol. Forgive me?

ok, well.

It is the ”young” and restless..

There is near zero young lol and very little young restlessness..

there are grandmas & grandpas and people pushing 50, so yeh they do to bring n younger ones or change the title .. LOL 🙂

Anyways, after she has served her purpose she will be let go ..

Timmm

CeeCee, young IS the NEW young! Dont you know! No, but from first glance I thought it was Liz but this young sweetie, her hair is much longer. Like I said, i just hope she can act. I like that it will cause Mariah to be possessive of the Silver Squirrel!

I agree Cee Cee…

This girl LOOKS MUCH too young to play a love interest of Kevin… as pretty as she is….I hope they don’t go there…

Y&R is family power..
If a character is not of the Abbots or Newman’s or connected through marriage, they are disposable characters.

The Newmans & Abbotts, whichever ones, dominate the screen day after day, they are upfront in some manner, it is their soap..

Why not bring in the pretty young girl for Noah, he seems to always be losing his love interests and they need a good storyline for him.

Mijosmimi

You said exactly what I was going to say. Noah needs a love interest! I think this girl is going to cause love triangles EVERYWHERE! First between Mariah and Kevin and then between Kevin & Noah.

Where I live if there is a news breaking event the Y and R is cut. I still am unclear why Billy is so blamed for whatever happened with Paragon because there was news for a couple of days. I am trying to get old Billy out of my mind and recognize that someone else is going to appear. By the way, Jenkins seems to be coming alive as he prepares to depart. Mariah, however, has been the only person with any “smarts” in my mind; hope they don’t make her stupid. Her instinct and perception are almost the only… Read more »

I am so over Kevin and Mariah or Kevin with anyone as far as that is concerned. Mariah needs a strong storyline. She has the talent. So why not give her a juicy storyline that is believable. Kevin and Mariah simply do not fit. Jack also need to be transformed. Too much is happening to him. It’s time for Jack to come up and show us that flavor we all miss and loved about him. And while you are at it, please give Phyllis something to do. I am so over Jack getting snowed by Victor. Life just does not… Read more »

Denise Alexander Responds to Outpouring of Fan Support on Her Return to General Hospital

Longtime fans of General Hospital were over the moon when it was revealed that Denise Alexander was on her way back to the ABC daytime drama series to reprise her role of Dr. Lesley Webber, mother of Laura, played by Genie Francis.

With Laura’s story with her new found half-brothers central to the current storyline, it’s a perfect time for Alexander to be back in Port Charles.

Tricia Sheldon, a fan of General Hospital who loves the vintage years of the show and more as she notes on her Twitter account, was able to reach Alexander, who is not on social media.  Sheldon showed her the outpouring of love the actress received, and the excitement on her on-screen imminent return.

In turn, Denise wrote a message to Sheldon to share publicly.  Part of which read   “Wow! I am breathless! What a wonderful surprise!  I am beyond grateful for all the kind and amazing and funny and sweet and caring and supportive and truly delicious messages. I have never felt so appreciated  and it brought tears and laughter reading each one.”

Alexander added, “I do not have a clue as to how to communicate on the Internet on Twitter.”  She then noted, “I would love to reach each and every person who wrote about that first day back. But I don’t even know what the rules are.  I’ve a vague sense that there is a limit to how long a message can be,but do not know how to reach anyone. Is there any way you could forward at least my thanks to everyone?”

Denise closed with,  “I love each and every message, and am full of gratitude.”

You can view the communication and Denise’s heartfelt message below.

Now let us know what you thought of Denise reaching out to all of the fans, and how grateful she is that viewers are excited to see her back on-screen via the comment section,
