When the Baldwins have their holiday get together this year, it will look a bit different, because the actor who is best known in soapland as Lauren (Tracey E. Bregman) and Michael’s (Christian LeBlanc) son, Max Ehrich, will not be on-screen reprising the role of Fen.

Ehrich took to his Instagram over the last 24 hours to explain: “Dear #YR fans: I was asked to do a special stint back on the show, but due to the bizarre stalker issue I had; It was unsafe at the time and I had to postpone. I grew up on #YR and learned so much. Forever grateful for the privilege of working on such an iconic show. Unfortunately, was unable to be there during that time of filming.”  Max first made mentioned of his stalker situation back in October of this year.

The talented young star added where fans could see him next: “Excited to say I do have a new Jenji Kohan/Jamie Denbo series premiering early 2019 as well as a Netflix movie & my music. See ya on screen soon. X”

According to Soap Opera News, Fenmore had to be recast and the series went with actor Zach Tinker when Fen comes home to Genoa City for the holidays.  Tinker has appeared in TV dramas: Murder In the First, and  Law & Order True Crime,

Wouldnt find the new Fenn, Zach sticking around he would make a good looking couple with Summer.They could do a nice young love quad with Kyle and Lola. Also it would give Lauren and Michael some screen time!

Too bad….love Max—he fit the role so well. Plus, he gets hotter as he gets older. I am going to give Kyle and Lola a chance, albeit she over-acts. It’s actually Tessa I want to be forever gone. I never liked her…..ever since she came to “town”….almost at the same time as Zack. I knew she was was not on the up-and-up from the onset. …..so glad when she left. When she returned I commented that this girl had something nefarious going on. I bet she’s not even gay….. This entire situation reminds me of Adam, when he slept with… Read more »

“thank you” for saying : “love Max—he fit the role so well. Plus, he gets hotter as he gets older” yowzah Max Ehrich: with all due respect . to put in to perspective… you also shared @one time you almost took your own life @ 15. for bullying Heart Reach… it’s not something you will forget. You have moved on.. yet this latest trial and tribulation is not a stranglehold. all I can share.. is the intensity of my own experiences … being bullied… I felt like the whole town of 800 people were against me… I had to leave… Read more »

Sweet, sweet, Patrick. So sorry. You’re one of the good guys. I salute and honor your endurance.❤️
I had no idea Max was bullied. Sad. I can’t even imagine. Yet, the older I get, the more I realize what a cruel world this is. No one should have to suffer to the point of wanting to die.
I know suffering, my friend, after having lost my boy…… the world was dead for a time; but I never had thoughts of suicide.
So glad to be here with you.
Much love❤️

“thank you” just wanted to empathize with Max. as are you. appreciate you. aside from that… can you believe the heart pitter patter… ^^^ that GREEN SHIRT is a stunner… I’ve likened him to @GH Harrison Chase.. similar facial feature… yet Chase is right their… w/Max and/or Finn… you have that underlying current … OF
no? sensation abound.

Oh Celia, where do they FIND these people? One is sleazier than the other! Granted, Cait Fairbanks has really been terrific in the terrific “exposure” scenes, but I never trusted Tessa either. Poor Mariah. She seems to have inherited her mother’s lousy romantic instincts. And how brilliant is Camryn Grimes… she literally stops my heart when she’s firing on all cylinders like this. Elsewhere, do you really think Rey is THAT deceitful? I can’t stand the guy but, if so, he may need a taste of Miss Nikki’s form of “justice” as well!

I’m very sad that Max is not returning as Fenmore, as I’ve always wanted him to return. He was stellar in the role. However, given the circumstances around his decision to not return, I am understanding of the decision to recast the role. I wish Zach Tinker the best in this role, and cannot wait to see what adventures come for Fen!

Well said, Scott, and I agree. Max is a special actor, talented and easy on the eyes, and I hope he’ll go on to great things.

He is. He’s got multiple Netflix projects coming in 2019, and he’s working on his debut solo album.

Fen could have put the brakes on Vyle’s disgusting libido!

Hi, Timmmy,
I love your “Vyle” name ….Perfect!!
Max is one-of-a-kind actor.
I would have loved to have seen Fen, Lauren and Michael interact ……now that he’s a man, the scenes between them would have been something to see. A challenge, perhaps?

Its good to see your name and your response again darling! I was neutral about Fen UNTIL I saw the actor in “Under the Dome.” He was fantastic and thats when I wish he would have returned full time at Y&R WITH a great story!

Thanks, T,
I have been very busy….between subbing and helping at the shelter, which gets pretty overwhelming around this time of year, throughout the holidays.
Yes and yes about Fen……he’s a welcomed character, always….if he ever comes back.
I wish him the best!!
❤️

Mr. Ehrich is an appealing, talented actor who is sorely missed by Y&R fans. I am thrilled he has other projects in the works! At the same time, we should embrace Mr. Tinker as he steps into the Y&R role.

Hello, jamesj75! And you’re as gracious as always regarding the Fen recast. I think there’s sometimes a reluctance to even give recasts a try, as we’re so invested in the previous performer (I was guilty of this regarding Kyle/Michael Mealor and now feel like a complete heel since he’s become one of my favorite actors). So, hopefully Max and new Zach will both succeed and be embraced. Lovely to hear from you again, jamesj75.

Thanks so much for your sweet reply (and kind words therein), Soaphound! I totally understand your thoughts on Michael Mealor, and I agree he’s doing a great job. You are correct about fans being reluctant to casting changes, which often work out very well. I also posted unwelcoming comments when the role of DOOL’s Chad DiMera was recast with Billy Flynn. Wow! Was I wrong! Flynn, by virtually everyone’s estimate, has done a phenomenal job since day 1! He is an appealing, highly capable actor. If I could find my old comment and had the ability to delete it, believe… Read more »

Am glad we have the Baldwin family back. Michael and Lauren are a pillar couple for Y&R. Let’s get them involved! I would be happy too if Scott returned so there was a family again. I would love to see a story that dissolves the inane sisterhood created for Jill and Lauren. Not believable. And I do miss Kevin and Gloria. There is a lot of talent and personality and story with all of these people.
