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

Courtesy/IMDB.com

Courtesy/IMDB.com

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.

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!!!

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.

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???

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? “

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.

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.

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

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!

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

Hasn’t Faith already been slightly aged?

gloria
Guest

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… Read more »

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… Read more »

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

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

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

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

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.

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.

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

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
Guest

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
Guest

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
Guest
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.

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

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.

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
Guest

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.

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!

‘This Is Us’ Guest Star Ron Cephas Jones & Jasmine Cephas Jones Become First Father-Daughter Winners In Emmy History

On Saturday night, Ron Cephas Jones took home his second Emmy for his guest-star turn on the hit NBC drama, This Is Us.   Jones, plays the biological father, William Hill to Sterling K. Brown’s Randall Pearson.  Jones took home the gold during the final night of the Creative Arts Emmys leading into Sunday’s night’s major ceremony on the 72nd annual Primetime Emmys on ABC. (8 p.m. EST/5 p. m. PST).

But what made last night all the more special for Ron is that with this win, he, along with his daughter actress Jasmine Cephas Jones, became the first father-daughter duo in Academy history to win Emmys.  Jasmine won on Thursday night’s Creative Arts Awards for her work on Quibi’s #FreeRayshawn.   Ron won in the Outstanding Guest Actor in a Drama series, while Jasmine took home the gold in the Outstanding Actress in a Short Form Comedy or Drama Series category.

In the virtual press room following his win, Ron expressed: “As a parent that’s the most fulfilling that I could ever feel at the moment. Winning another Emmy is the icing on the cake, but to see my daughter progress and move into this place where she’s earned an Emmy is beyond words and I tear up every time I think about it to be honest with you. To see my daughter become healthy and happy, that’s a parent’s dream.  I’ve always focused on the work ever since she was a little girl, and coming from the theater it’s always been about trying to do good work…when you do what you want to do and you’re happy and you’re healthy that’s the win in itself… When we found out she was nominated, I was expressing to her that’s the win in itself when your work gets acknowledged and the win itself is the icing on the cake that keeps you humble and keeps you hungry.”

However, Ron’s win did not go off without hitch!  The broadcast announced The Outsider‘s Jason Bateman as the winner, and then suddenly cut to a commercial.  After the break, a title card acknowledged the mistake and confirmed that the This Is Us star was the actual winner.  In the virtual press room an announcement to all was made that: “They announced the right winner and the right slate, but the voiceover was incorrect.”

So what do you think about Ron Cephas Jones second Emmy win for This Is Us, and his daughter winning an Emmy the same Emmy season? Comment below.

Holly’s Alive as Emma Samms Makes a Return to General Hospital

Friday’s cliffhanger ending of General Hospital revealed that Holly is indeed alive and being held captive, but by whom?  Who ever is behind this has her locked away and being watched on a surveillance system.

Viewers saw a hand of someone that is behind the kidnapping, and that Emma Samms made a return to GH in her signature role of Holly Sutton.

Samms, debuted on GH back in 1982, and has come and gone, and come back again to the ABC daytime drama series.  She last appeared back on it in 2015.

Nighttime soap fans remember her fondly as Fallon on ABC’s Dynasty and its spin-off, The Colbys.

Once the secret was out on her appearance at the end of Friday’s episode,  Samms shared on Twitter: “She’s alive…!”

So what do you think of the twist? That Holly is alive and that Samms was on-screen? Who do you think has Holly? Share your theories below.
