I can’t say I’m too happy… Jack Manning was my favorite kid on not only OLTL but on all the soaps. I just LOVED Carmen LoPorto!!! I will certainly give the new actor a chance but he’s got he’s work cut out for him for me… Carmen played Jack so Todd-like.

This kid is a TERRIBLE actor! The other boy who was playing was so much better…. im wondering why they chose someone with no acting ability… he’s gotta someone’s kid or grandkid who works on the show… he cant even make basic dialogue believable and is completely monotone! i just don’t understand it!

He can’t act! It all seems forced the last Jack you could have believed he was capable of anything. This new young adult while cute should have stuck to commercials

I have watched this show for years and I hate to say it but this kid CANNOT act. My son has been acting in plays for the last 10 years and I have never seen a kid act as badly as this boy. He is horrible. They really need to find someone that can actually play the part. He may be cute, but he needs to be able act and this kid DOES NOT.

OMG I am a huge OLTL fan but this new Jack Manning actor drives me bonkers. I can no longer watch the show while it’s airing. I have to DVR it so I can fast forward through his scenes–it’s just painful to watch. Cringe-worthy. What were they thinking?

I realize soap actors aren’t always the best actors around but really? Ugh.

He may be good looking, but he has no acting ability. He isn’t improving at all. Carmen should have been kept on the show. He was a great actor and looked like he really could be Roger’s son.

This came on top of his Jason’s post which expressed: “When I signed my 1 year contract with Y&R I was excited because for the first time in 3 years living in this city I was able to call a studio like ‘Television City’ home.  Add to that the incredible people I’ve had the pleasure of working with to create genuine relationships with … like Peter Bergman,Melissa Ordway, Jordi Vilasuso, Sasha Calle and Noemi Gonzalez  just to name a few. (Sorry guys, but Peter is my favorite).  I feel blessed to have been part of something so special like The Young and the Restless family.  It’s time to turn the page and see what beautiful stories I am blessed enough to be part of next.  I want to send all my love and positive vibes to the Y&R fans who have been so welcoming since day 1! Appreciate the love and no worries, The Rosales family will still be cooking up some drama in Genoa City, so keeping looking out for them, and showing them all the love they deserve.”

No airdate at this time has been given for Canela’s last appearance on Y&R.
