Beam me up Scotty to Genoa City! News today out of Mashable has that none other than Nichelle Nichols known for her role as Lieutenant Uhura in the original Star Trek TV series and movie franchise coming in for a landing to Y&R in the role of Lucinda – a character with an emotional connection to a major character in town.

On-Air On-Soaps previously posted the casting call when the CBS daytime drama series was casting a veteran African-American actress for a pivotal role.

In a statement, Nichols related: “I’m thrilled and honored to be a member of the cast of this historic moment in daytime television. I’ve been a huge fan of The Young and the Restless for decades. I’m equally honored to be from Chicago like the Bell Family who created this incredible TV show.”

Nichelle will appear in two episodes, including the 11,000th episode of the long-running soap to air on Thursday, September 1st.

So, what do you think about Nichelle visiting Y&R in her guest-star role? Who will Lucinda be related to on the soap? Comment below.

Me too jaybird, Nichelle Nichols is a wonderful actress. Wow Nichelle is 84 years old, she still looks great for her age. my prediction she is related to Neil Winters. mother and son. I could be wrong lol.

Yes Celia, that’s what I think to, lets hope we are right.

Hiliary’s grandma?

Good one, Jimmy. That makes sense. Maybe she is concerned about Hilary’s health and has come to be with her.

She could also be Neil’s mom like you said…or a former Las Vegas showgirl who had an affair with Victor Newman and had a child with him-who is to be cast later-i always thought Victor should be in competition with GH’s Sonny Corithinos-who can have the most children from different women-so far Sonny is winning-lol

@Jimh(leave it to beaver).
Yeah, another good one, Jimmy. How about this: her affair with Victor produced Neil.
Awwww, another baby boy for Victor, with yet another woman.

Neil can’t be Victor’s son. Neil and Victoria dated in the late 90’s. So Neil can’t be Victor’s son.

@Lou.
LOL, LOU. Jim and I propose ridiculous scenarios to each other, all the time. It has become a game with us. We do it with DOOL and GH, as well.
But, be that as it may, why couldn’t Neil be Victor’s son? Neither is aware of that fact. It would be sooo soapy.
You never know, Lou, my friend….maybe Victoria isn’t really Victor’s. Let’s face it, Nikki was no saint.

Is it possible that Nichelle Nichols’ Y&R character, Lucinda, could be related to Hilary (Mishael Morgan)?! It is a very good possibility! This should be very interesting. Whomever Lucinda is connected to, it will be great to see this Star Trek legend on The Young and the Restless!

Celia
Guest

Absolutely, Michael. When it was first announced, I think a few weeks ago, that an African American older woman was coming ‘to visit’….we all speculated, as we are doing now. I said it was either Hilary’s grandmother on her father’s side, or Neil’s mother.
I believe Hilary’s mother was white; so, she could not be her mother’s mother.

Right, Celia! It should be interesting to see who Lucinda is connected to! It’s possible she could be connected to Neil, Hillary or Devon! I don’t know if it’s possible that she’s connected to Lily. If she’s Neil’s mother, that would also make her Malcolm’s mother as well, being that Neil and Malcolm are brothers, making Lucinda Lily’s grandmother, because Malcolm is Lily’s biological father!

What is the point of two episodes?

I agree with you. I am hoping that maybe they will have her come back as Maime, and she could inform Neil and Lily that Drucilla is alive. Because as we all know, a body was never recovered from the accident. But the only way this could work would be to let the lovely and talented Victoria Rowell reprise the much loved role. And in keeping true to soap operas past aand present, alot of damage can be done in two days. I guess we just have to wait and see.

I don’t think she’s going to be Mamie, because her name is Lucinda. What would be the purpose of calling her Lucinda if she’s Mamie. They would have just said she’d be playing Mamie #3. Mamie was played by Marguerite Ray and Veronica Redd. As for Drucilla, it would be great if she returned. Although Victoria Rowell was my favorite Drucilla, the role was also temporarily played by Dawn McMillan in 1996, and Kent Masters-King, in 2000.

Such inspired casting. This woman is a television icon, a champion for civil rights, and a great beauty as well. Between the return of the wonderful Michael Graziadei and the arrival of Nichelle Nichols, I’m suddenly looking forward to this 11,000th episode.

Y&R Shares ‘Most Memorable Moments Of Dina Mergeron’: What Was Your All-Time Favorite?

Yesterday, viewers of The Young and the Restless needed the hankies as they had to say goodbye to the character of Dina Mergeron and actress Marla Adams who was killed-off the CBS Daytime drama series due to Dina’s battle with Alzheimer’s coming to a a heartbreaking end.

Adams had been with the series on and off for over five decades.  In story and during her run, when Dina reappeared or disappeared it was a game-changer for the Abbott family.  She was a wealthy woman who often put her own needs in front of her children and her marriage to John Abbott (Jerry Douglas).  From affairs, leaving her children when they were young, to becoming a manipulative business woman, Dina Mergeron was no push-over.

When Marla Adams returned to the series four years ago in 2017, it was the intent that during Dina’s decline from Alzheimer’s  disease that she would reunite with her children and help the family find some inner-peace from all the damage and pain she had caused them through the years.

In honor of the wonderful portrayal of Marla Adams, Y&R put together a clip package of some of Dina’s most memorable moments.   You can watch it below!

Then let us know, what was your all time favorite Dina moment via the comment section below.   And if you have not done so already, make sure to check out Michael Fairman TV’s farewell interview with Marla, posted shortly after Dina passed on Friday’s episode.
