Summer SORASing at Y&R! Fenmore and Summer to become Teens!

Here we go again, ladies and gentlemen! It’s time for another major jump in time for those loveable kids on the soaps.  In an attempt to beef up their upcoming summer storylines, The Young and the Restless has put out casting calls to SORAS both Phyllis and Nick’s little girl, Summer and Lauren and Michael’s son, Fen!

Courtesy/IMDB

Here is what we know via Soap Opera Digest, “The show is seeking 18-year-olds to play 15/16-year-olds for both roles. Summer is described as a fun, feisty typical teen; Fen will be returning from boarding school and “adjustment will be an issue.”

Most recently Samantha Bailey and Robbie Tucker have been the child stars to play Summer and Fen.

So, since the show is going down this road, any casting recommendations you might want to suggest for who could play the teen Summer and Fenmore? Also, what do you think of the move to age the kids? Good for story? Bad idea? Let us know!

Why is it that every kid that grows up in the Baldwin clan has adjustment issues. Eden was a mess when she joined the family too. Also, now Summer is going to be quite close in age to Noah. Also, shouldn’t Noah be a bit older than both Abby and the incoming Kyle.

noah is coming back as a college graduate – i think the actor is already taping scenes………

To my knowledge Noah is off the canvas . Because Joshua Morrow looks young I am not sure he is even 40 this is stupid leave well enough alone they have too many people on this show. And MAB please give Eric Braeden & Stephen Nichols new toupee’s they look awful!!!

kay killgore

I just checked Joshua Morrow is only 38! MAB is nuts and ruining this show! I will add this Jess Walton leaving for six months to be with a new grandbaby I am not buying it for one minute. It makes me ill what MAB has done she can’t write for grownups much less children.

ethel

jess walton posted on her face book page that she wanted time off for the birth of her new grand child – is that all a lie???

Marj

Jess Walton is certainly old enough to be a grandmother. I am not sure what your point is here other than that you may think she is too young. She is probably near 60

ethel

i know that jess is about 60 but you wrote ” i am not buying it for one minuet” did you mean that you don’t believe the reason for her 6 month leave is to be with her new grand baby? “

Marj

nope that was not me that wrote “i am not buying it for one minute” that was not me and i don’t see the post now.

I vote for Mick Hazen for Fenn!

Hey i checked him out on google, he has soap experience (ATWT) and looks exactly like the previous actor. If he hears of this casting call i completely see him winning the role.

Nikki

Mick would be PERFECTION. I’ve missed him so much since ATWT.

Moviegal

He’s a very good actor, winning back-to-back Young Actors Awards in his category -for those who don’t remember him, he played Carly’s (Maura West) and Jack’s (Michael Parks) son on As The World Turns.

Y’all are SO right-he would be perfect!

Justin

If he talks to Maura, he won’t even try out. They use you for a couple of months and write you into a corner. He would be better off looking for prime-time or movie work. I agree he is good, but Y&R tends to use up known actors and spit them out…after they are done with you. They would be better off with an unknown…or rather the actor would be better off just getting some experience and moving on (if he isn’t written off first.)

How long B4 Faith is aged?

Why is this necessary? They don’t know what to do with Daniel, Eden, Noah, etc. Why add more to the mix?

David Larsson
David Larsson

Hasn’t Faith already been slightly aged?

gloria
gloria

Yes, Faith has totally been aged. Funny-one day she was her original self, then she was aged (a different actress-the current one) then I swear, there was a courtroom scene with Sharon & it was the original baby Faith for just that day! Did anyone else notice this? Then it was back to bigger older (current) Faith. Just wait, in a few months Lucy will be 8 or 9 & so will baby Jack, Moses too. If there is anything I hate about soaps it is the unnecessary aging of the kids. I think the babies are definitely cuter than the “kids” & can provide just as much story.

Lisa
Lisa

They aged Faith right after the Christmas pageant last year.
@ Gloria yes I do remember that.

They have been “aging” kids forever on the show.
Nick and Victoria are older than they should be.

Kyle Jenkins Abbott and Abby Carlton should actually be the same age.
I don’t know if anyone remembers back when Victor had a frozen sperm sample and Diane wanted it for herself (I think she was still married to Victor but he was going to divorce her)…anyway Ashely wound up with it …she always wanted to have Victors child since she had aborted his baby many years before.

I guess TPTB need to keep fresh storylines..hence SORAS.
I mean how many times can Niki and Victor, Nick and Sharon get back together. OY VEY !!

Mo
Mo

I meant, how long before Faith is aged to a teenager?

I guess Reed will stay a kid because he’s off screen mainly.

ethel

if this keeps up little moses & baby john abbott will be in pre-school by fall……………..

Violet

I guarantee Moses will be running around in a couple of months. They might keep baby John a baby a little longer to play out the whole ‘Victoria finally got her baby but will the birth mom take it back’ business.

Marj
Marj

If Victor and Adam keep going at Chelsea she is gonna take that baby back. I think I read somewhere that she may not be the child of Billy.

Norma

I would have like to see them grow up, but when are they going to to find out Summer is Jacks lil girl ?

Christine

Yeah. You just know they are going to go down that road some day. I mean Nick was the only one to see the DNA results.

michelle

and didn’t he have that plane accident and suffer amnesia after that? Does he even remember who summer belongs to?

Bart

THIS IS SO BAD IT’S NOT FUNNY!!

Maria Arena Bell, you have trashed your father-in-law’s legacy!!!

David Larsson

And apparently William J. Bell’s son (Maria’s husband) doesn’t care.

REALLY! Totally agree.

Christine

I don’t know how they can pass off making Summer and Fen TEENS when Jack Abbott is supposedly only 46 and Genevieve Atkinson is supposedly only 33! Ha! Ha! Did anyone catch those ages on the marriage license this past week? What a joke!

That’s as bad as when there was that TV movie Sony had with Heather Locklear called “Flirting with 40.” It was more like 50. They must think we are stupid.

Tim
Tim

Christine, It’s funny that you mention Genevieve’s age. That just reminds me of when Cane came to town posing as a Chancellor. If you do the math, Cane should be roughly the same age as Phillip II, who is in his late 40’s. That is one reason the Cane/Lily pairing creeps me out so much.

I looked it up one day, something like Soap Opera Rapid Aging Syndrome, so effing stupid & needless in most cases.

David Larsson
David Larsson

You know, when summer comes around in the UK, British soap writers still focus on adults and it’s actually quite successful. The US could take a lesson from this since I for one really have no desire to watch a bunch of teens be horny on my screen (which why I don’t watch B&B).

Also, how many times did Robbie Tucker actually appear as Fen? Like twice or something? Maybe three times.

Christine
Christine

That’s a great point, David. It isn’t like when I was growing up in the 70s and 80s.

The teens today are not watching the soaps. They are texting and going to the mall and things like that, or I suppose. My boys are just babies right now so I have NO idea what teens are doing, but they aren’t watching soaps – that I DO know.

Great points David.

Jared

ENOUGH already, Y&R. Stop rapidly aging the characters. Audiences are smarter that this b.s.

ethel

it is what it is – all soaps do it…………

Jared

I don’t think I said otherwise.

kay killgore

I beleive Jess Walton wants time off with the grandbaby but 6 months seems like a long time I guess I am trying to figure out why they have not written more of her character with Katherine etc though I do think Jeanne Cooper is a lot more frail then we realize I just miss my favorites and I think this aging of kids is a bit much all new faces with no acting experience.

Emily

Eddie Alderson (ex Matthew, OLTL) would be a really smart choice! Austin Williams has a lot of talent but he is just 15. (Imagine the idea of a 15 year old playing a 15 year old… crazy!) Then there is another OLTL guy… Andrew Trischitta. Maybe Dylan Patton who was Will Horton before Chandler. Drew Garrett (ex Chad GH) might be a little too old but could be an option. I agree in liking the idea of Mick Hazen too.

Mo
Mo

They want 18 year olds so they don’t have to worry about laws regarding minors and minors would have to go to school. Don’t blame them.

BETTYEJ

Who is going to raise these kids. There sorry parents never had the time when they were suppose to be young.

Delia has already been aged. I hope they let her stay a little kid for a while. Billy is so cute with her!

I think its great to bring them in as teens

so Kyle as 10 last august when he lost his mom and he’s how old today? old enough to get in bars? old enough for eden?

Karla Mosley Back To Work At B&B; Hunter Tylo On The Way Too?

Fans of The Bold and the Beautiful this week got some fun intel from two sources, the actresses themselves! First, Karla Mosley has returned to taping all-new episodes of the CBS daytime drama series, following her maternity leave.

That means Maya Avant will be back in action.. In an Instagram post holding a script from the series, she noted, “Back to work!!!! Having all the feels.”

Mosley gave birth in August to her daughter, Aurora Imani.   Maya was last seen on the canvas in that month as well.  No word yet if Maya’s return will also bring with it Rick Forrester (Jacob Young) who went on recurring status with the show and is off doing other projects.

In other news, looks like fan favorite Hunter Tylo (Taylor) may be back on Bold, in time for the holidays, if her tweets are any indication of that.  Having a twitter exchange with fans of the series, one who seemed disgruntled again, Tylo posted this!

This would indicate Tylo is on her way back for holiday episodes and maybe more of the soap as Taylor!  She also tweeted on the Bill, Ridge, Katie custody drama and shenanigans, “Think I need to go to go straighten these people out?”.  The thread on Hunter’s twitter page continued with a “Stay Tuned” GIF and more.

So, excited to see Maya and Taylor back on the canvas at The Bold and the Beautiful? What would you like to see happen for the characters in story? Comment below.

Y&R’s Tracy E. Bregman Shares Heartbreak Of Losing Her Home In Southern California Wildfires On ‘The Talk’

The wildfires continue to leave destruction in their path in Southern California as hundreds of thousands in Southern California have had to leave their homes behind.  Many are finding nothing to come back to after what is now called the Woolsey Fire burned down their beloved homes.

One of those victims who lost her home over the weekend to the fires is The Young and the Restless, Tracey E. Bregman (Lauren). She is among other celebrities such as: Miley Cyrus, Gerard Butler, and Neil Young whose houses in the Malibu area were destroyed.

Bregman made a guest appearance on today’s episode of The Talk, revealing what happened when she found her house had been burned to the ground in a heartbreaking moment.

The Daytime Emmy-winner shared: “It’s been surreal.  It’s kind of hard to wrap your mind around … it’s hard to believe all the family celebrations and everything that I had in there is gone.  I woke up thinking, I actually don’t have anything from my past. I have no notes, or cards, or anything like that. But like Miley Cyrus said, I got my kids out, my animals out, we’re alive.”

Tracey added, “This is my third evacuation since I moved there in 2004.  I got my dog, I was able to pack a bag … grab my Emmy, but my fathers NAACP award did not make it out, and he passed away a year and a half ago, so I’m missing that.  I honestly don’t know where to live, what to do. Luckily, I just bought a little place in Nashville, and I think my whole family, we’re going to spend Thanksgiving, actually with my friends Todd and Julie Chrisley, they invited us.”

Eileen Davidson (Ex-Ashley, Y&R) also reported via social media that she is safe but there eas some damage to her home: “After living for 24 hours thinking we lost our house completely we found out yesterday that we only lost the yard around our house. Sweating it out for the next 48 hours and praying for everybody involved in this devastating and horrific fire. Love to all of you.”

At least 370 structures have been destroyed and two people have died in the catastrophic blaze, which has now spread to 92,000 acres as of Monday.

Celebrities such as: Lady Gaga, Kim Kardashian West and Alyssa Milano fled their houses over the weekend to escape the flames and winds.

Watch Tracey’s tragic story on the loss of her home below.  Then, share your well-wishes and prayers for Tracey via the comment section,
