Look for Sharon (Sharon Case) and Nick’s (Joshua Morrow) son, Noah Newman, to be back on the Genoa City canvas of The Young and the Restless later this fall.

However, the role will now be played by Rory Gibson.

Gibson takes over the role of Noah from Robert Adamson who viewers last saw in the role in 2020.

 

Some of Rory’s previous credits have included the TV movies: A Night to Regret and Twisted Twin as well as the films, Grace and Severed Road.

So excited to see Y&R’s new Noah? Comment below.

???? why the switch???

I think it may have something to do with Mark Grossman. Grossman is two years younger than Robert Adamson(Former Noah) and they decided that someone younger had to take on the role.

This is the third Noah. Why?

I actually think this will be the fourth
There were two teen/ young adult Noahs before Robert Adamson
The 1st was on for several years and involved with Eden, Michael Baldwins sister
The third came and went quick

Yeah, why the switch? Was Robert unavailable?

That’s my question! He looks younger than Mariah and Summer!

Some people stayed young looking. Just like David Tom. Who came back to the role of Billy. Then I read he got replaced because too young looking. That is when Billy Miller took over the role as Billy.

I guess, but he’s the older brother of Mariah, Summer & Faith.

I believe Mariah and Cassie were born before Noah.

He is not older than Mariah. Sharon had Cassie and Mariah when she was a young teenager before she met Nick. Not that it matters. The show screwed with the ages of these characters so badly when they aged Summer.

They have ALWAYS maintained, and made huge story out of the fact that Summer was born after Cassie died. Cassie was 15 when she died. That means, if aging was logical, that Mariah (as Cassie’s twin), would be 15 years older than Summer.

Summer would be about 27 now, which would make Mariah 42, which would make Sharon 58:

Ah soaps! Lol.

JJ,
You are right and that age thing is crazy, right? Summer seemed younger when she was just a spoiled teen, called Snowflake by Mariah.

Lew S
Summer was born between Mariah/Cassie and Noah, than came Faith.

He’s good looking and we need for the role of Noah to return to the canvass but this actor seems to be a decade younger than the role portrayed by Robert Adamson. This is strange – a reverse SORAS???

While it’s long overdue for Noah to be on the canvas, really disappointed that Robert Adamson will not be returning.

it had to be–
with Summer and Kyle gone they need to replace with another
he will go to work with Billy, most likely.
much better– he should work with Adam..
whichever- he will be given a CO or VP position, like Kyles.
He is very handsome I will enjoy looking at him 😉

Bring back Noah? Good move. Just don’t forget to write meaningful and compelling story for the character… With an eye on longevity. I don’t want to see a lame disappointing return as we had recently with Stitch.

Adamson never hurt the role or helped it. Maybe this young man can turn the volume up and make Noah a stronger Newman.

He looks younger than the other Noah. Guess Noah is back from London. I hope they have good story for him.

I wish him well, but I have always held out hope that Kevin G. Schmidt would return to the role at some point.

Me, too, jamesj75. I’m so happy with Mark Grossman that I’ve decided to be more open to recasts. For every disastrous recast, like GH’s nuSpencer and now Drew, there’s a Mark G. to make up for it. I’d hoped cutie Casey Moss (ex-DOOL’s J.J.) might be the new Noah but…

Sweet Soaphound, I was so hoping for someone to agree with my point about Kevin G. Schmidt. And you stepped up to the plate! Glad you’re happy about Grossman — I can see that. Oh, and Casey Moss? The DOOL braintrust should be tar-and feathered for letting him go. He has star power, acting chops, and good looks. Also, his character is part of a major Salem family.

And this gives me a chance to go on a rant about Johannesburg! I now harbor disdain for this faraway city I have never visited, nor will I visit. Since when did Johannesburg become a mecca for young people to pursue their dreams, to cultivate their careers, and to find love? Johannesburg can keep Theo, but bring back Claire and JJ. From one JJ to another…

Should be Zach tinker as Fenn returning to fill the young adult role void from Michael Mealor
Especially to give Lauren and Michael something meaningful , the Gloria crap is very tired

Rory is handsome can’t wait to see him!glad he will be noah and hope he gets an exciting and front line storyline the previous Noah was not exciting enough to me this actor already has my interest.welcome rory to y&r now i have someone to watch besides Adam and Sally !

Ah, I think you hit the nail right on the head!! Maybe he’s being brought on for Sally? This thing with Adam won’t go anywhere and she will be a thorn in the side for Sharon, Nick, Nikki and Victor.

Lew S,
Can’t believe you suggested the idea of Noah and Sally. I wrote the same thing last night and than deleted it thinking I was crazy. At first I thought that Sally and Noah would drive the Newmans insane especially Nicki, knowing what she did to Summer. I wonder why Victor has not gone after this witch, and wonder, does he even know what that woman did with all her conniving? Also, isn’t she closer to Adam’s age than Noah’s?

I agree, Violet. What’s with this new, passive Victor? Actually telling Sally that it’s “a pleasure meeting you.” Really? He should start sharing his vitriol for Billy with a few more people! And the thought of that witch with gorgeous and brilliant Mark Grossman sickens me.

Soaphound,
O.K my dear, calm down. I think your Adam is safe for now from that witch. I think they are going to point her towards nu-Noah. Then maybe that will get Victor’s attention. Yes, I thought everyone including Phyllis would be clamoring for his help regarding what Sally in cahoots with Kyle’s ex did to Summer. I just wonder if this was a slip-up on the writer’s part or done intentionally? At the time it seemed so obvious a fix for a problem that Victor would have no qualms about getting into.

Soaphound,
Can’t believe Victor giving Adam grief today over seeing “that woman, after what she did to Summer.” Finally, he says something, why didn’t he at least try to nip the bitch in the bud when she was driving his granddaughter out of town? Let’s see what he does when she goes after his grandson Noah. That will be interesting.

Usually,when the show recast the role. Because the actor or actress is not available. Or take a different direction with the character.

I’m just glad you are bringing Noah back i know this isn’t on/off the topics but the lady with the green dress at grand phoenix please change

Margaret,
Is this the one someone also mentioned about always walking back and forth in the bar/longue area? Well, if it is, they finally let her say a few words to Billy when he was trying to get her to let him into Victor’s suite at the big shindig.

I love that this legacy character is being returned. As an adult, Noah has been played by 3 actors. I liked them all, but none of them made such an identifiable mark on Noah that a recast couldn’t be possible! This actor looks believable as Noah, and I hope the writers do some good writing for him!!

Just saw the newest Noah today at the wedding. He’s very good looking and likeable. I Sure hope he doesn’t get mixed up with that red haired manace Sally.

I agree, VIOLET. He can ACT, without the usual grace period of natural awkwardness. I was very impressed on all levels, looks and talent. Just keep him away from that train wreck Sally is right! Maybe she can find some wealthy Tuscan count and get out of town for good.

Whoever this new Noah is, is a big change. He has the ability to change his facial expression from one thing to another with ease. Almost too often. Other Noah was “kind and gently” seeming. This one has opened other possibilities. I wonder!

GH’s Mark Teschner Tells Casting Stories of Johnny Wactor, Giovanni Mazza, Rebecca Herbst & Nicholas Chavez

This week during a very informative and insightful conversation, General Hospital’s 11-time Emmy-winning casting director and now a Daytime Emmy Silver Circle honoree, Mark Teschner spoke on finding the talent for specific roles on the ABC daytime drama series throughout his near three and half decades with the show.

During a livestream chat on the Michael Fairman Channel, Teschner recalled some of the behind the scenes casting stories that brought many beloved favorites to the GH family including the late Johnny Wactor (ex-Brando), the newly-arrived, Giovanni Mazza (Gio), longtime fan favorite, Rebecca Herbst (Elizabeth), and rising star, Nicholas Chavez (ex-Spencer) to name but a few.

When speaking with sadness over the loss of Wactor, who was shot and killed back on May 25th, and what he brought to the character of Brando, Teschner recalled, “With Johnny, what you see is what you get. You see the most kind decent, standup guy, and that’s innately who he is. So, that quality comes through in his work and with the character.”

Mark explained, “Brando was a raw kind of hothead, troubled kind of character, and Johnny was able to go there. He had a real intensity that he was able to bring to the role, but at the same time, the character of Brando had to have this depth and this giant heart that he doesn’t necessarily reveal when you first see him. Well, Johnny had the biggest heart of anyone you’ll ever meet. So that essence was already there, and then his acting and his skill played the character. Johnny brought so much of who he was to the character, and there was something so authentic about him.”

Giovanni Mazza recently debuted on GH as “Gio”, so what was his road to landing in Port Charles? Teschner shared, “I was casting a recurring role for a 15-year-old on the show, but when I’m doing the audition, sometimes I’ll open it up because we try to cast true to age, really within a year or so.  If you think about it, all the kids in our show are the exact age of the characters that they’re playing. Because if you have somebody that’s older playing younger, it sticks out because they’re not going to blend age-wise. But I did read a number of actors that were older just because they looked interesting. Gio’s audition came in. I was viewing this through self tapes, and there was just something about him. It wasn’t just that he was a great-looking kid, it was just there’s something very soulful about him and something very compelling, and he draws you in. ”

Mark continued, “So with the group of the 15-year-olds that I sent to Frank Valeintini (EP, GH), I said, ‘Hey, I’m including this kid, Giovanni Mazza. I’m well aware he’s too old, but I just want you to see him.’

After having him come into audition, two weeks later, Frank called Mark and told him they were putting Gio under contract. Teschner added, “So, that was an example where it was his first week in LA, it was his first and ever audition. So we got  before anybody else.  I think he’s really gonna develop into, you know, quite a young actor.”

Becky Herbst has been beloved as Elizabeth for decades, and Teschner recounted her audition process and how she came to the role of Elizabeth. “She (originally) auditioned for the role of Sarah Webber. But the role of Elizabeth was created for Becky. While the character of Sarah did not last long, here we are with Becky 30 years later.”

Teschner cited Becky’s casting as a great example. “I always tell actors when they come into audition, you lay it out, you put it all out there, you bring everything you have to that role. You may not get the role, but if you do good work, you get remembered. And it’s so true.”

Nicholas Chavez popped in the role of Spencer Cassadine before exiting the series. Teschner tells how Chavez came onto the GH casting radar. “Nicholas sent his self tape in from Florida and the rest is history. He had a meteoric impact on the show.” Mark added, “You always have an expectation and the hope that they’re (the actor) going to nail it and run with it. But sure, there are actors, you think, ‘They’re gonna be awesome,’ and then all of a sudden it goes to another level. With Nicholas Chavez, we knew he’d be amazing, but you know, who knew? Well, we did.”

Watch the full conversation with Mark Teschner below where he talks about even more of the casting stories behind some of your GH favorites, then and now.
