Heartbreaking news hitting social media this morning.  Y&R alum, Beau Kazer has died.  The actor who for years played the son of Katherine Chancellor, Brock Reynolds passed away at age 63 at his home in Thousand Oaks, California on December 30th, according to reports.

Beau is survived by his wife Sharon Alkus who wanted to let everyone know just how much Y&R was a part of his life, and that he was very proud to be a part of.

The actor came on to the scene at Y&R back in 1974, and made frequent appearances over the next several decades.  And as had been told by the the late Jeanne Cooper (Katherine Chancellor) in her memoir, “Not Young, Still Restless”, even though Beau had played her son the show, they at one point had a romantic relationship.

Beau has changed his name over the years from “Beau Kayser” to more recently “Beau Kazer”.

Patti Denney, hair and make up artist at Y&R tweeted:  “So sad to hear of the passing of Beau Kayser … Brock Reynolds on the Young &The Restless…Kay Chancellor’s son… rest in peace Beau.”  Doug Davidson (Paul, Y&R) related, “He was such a loving, sweet man who loved life and the show. I will miss him.”

Damn it, sad! I was just saying how he and Tucker needed to be back on the show and represent the Chancellor name. May he be with the “Duchess” in the sky! Sympathy to his wife and the rest of his family.

Here’s hoping the “current” writers will acknowledge Brock’s passing, also. Seriously, I’ve been a part of the show since it began and this past decade has lost all the “soul” of Bill Bell’s vision. Brock brought faith to the other characters, and given Bill Bell’s catholic school education, you saw it in Brock. You also saw it in Liz Foster, and the two of them were the two crutches Kay Chancellor needed to survive. I seriously wish Kay Alden (whom I met in Chicago when I interviewed Bill about the show) was back at the helm– the program needs characters… Read more »

I agree Ron. It starts with the top, then the head writer, then the veterans on the show who should or could fight to keep Y&R’s good name. The show is nothing like it was a year or two ago, let alone five.

Jeanne Cooper had an affair with this male actor she claims in her bio book she wrote years ago

I read Cooper’s book over Christmas and was shocked by the claim of having an affair with Beau. I wonder if he ever acknowledged it?

Timmm
Guest

I saw that and was shocked. Either way I hope it was on the up and up? [I didnt read Jeanne’s book] They can have all the affairs they want now! Sad loss, he was a rock in that household. What do we have now, Jill? Uggg!

Earline
Guest

Was he married at the time of the alleged affair?Was Jeanne? Because if neither one of them was married, then so what if they had had an affair! I’m not saying that it is alright for people to have a sexual relationship outside of marriage. What I’m saying is they weren’t actually related. So if they did have a sexual relationship that was their business. I’m not sure why it’s so shocking.

Any ideas on how to change things? Or, better yet, how to get a tribute for Brock’s death? I also think if these current writers had half the brains of their audience, they’d do a Bill Bell kindof thing: have Jill now wear Katherine’s shoes and bring in a young gold digger that moves in on Jill and hubby– you know, history repeats itself. And, what’s with the music selections these days? Good Lord (Bell would write and characters would say.) Man, they need to view and listen to those 70s episodes to see what makes Young and Restless not… Read more »

Ron, when Kathrine died I had hoped that Tucker would come in and fight Jill for control of the estate and fight Victor for the company. Instead we had that stupid music box story. One of the worst stories EVER! If you are too cheap or dumb to bring back Tucker, and I liked the original, yes Ron they should have made Jill the new Matriarch and had Nina or an unknown heir roll through town and reek havoc on Jill. Y&R does cater more towards the middle age fans, more than GH, but not enough these days. Its weird… Read more »

So sad to hear this news. Another link to soap’s glorious past is gone. I always liked the character Brock and Beau’s portrayal of him was a big reason why. I wished they had made the character and the actor a bigger part of Jeanne’s memorial and hope the show will do something to mark his passing. Rest in peace Beau, and give Jeanne a big hug for me, you both are missed.

Horrible news. Beau’s presence as the stoic Brock was always a comforting one. He was — in many ways — a patriarch on Y&R who always was the voice of reason to his mother, “The Duchess”.

He consistently gave solid, believable performances in every scene he was in; his calming nature standing in stark contrast to all of the craziness of the GC denizens.

I’ll miss him, but have many fond memories of his years on my favorite show. My thanks and sincere condolences to his family and many friends at Y&R.

Soaps are families. As a Longtime Y&R viewer, I am familiar with Brock and how he referred to his mother, Katherine, as Duchess. When one of the family passes, it is sad indeed. How wonderful to learn he remained a champion of the series and the genre.

This is very sad news, Beau was always such a warm presence on the show, and I really enjoyed his portrayal of Brock. I absolutely loved his scenes with Jeanne Cooper and Jess Walton, and I wished he was around more often! I think it’s important now that Katherine is gone, for her sons, Brock and Tucker, to return to Genoa City and make her proud by carrying on the Chancellor dynasty. Unfortunately, if Brock ever does return, Beau Kazer won’t be. I’ll miss hearing him say “Dutchess”!

Not to sound rude or insensitive here. Yes, it’s sad when anyone dies. But what are so many of y’all rambling on about him and the Dutchess being reunited and floating around in the clouds together. These were Hollywood actors with a 20 year age gap who had a sordid romantic past. None of you knew them, who they play on t.v. is not who they are in real life.

I think everyone posting here knows they are not their characters, but those who knew them as actors knew they loved the show, loved their characters and loved their fans. Both Jeanne and Beau would find fans imagining them as their characters reuniting in the afterlife as a fitting and touching way for them to say goodbye and meant to be a tribute to their legacy of work. They may have only been actors, but for many viewers these actors through their performances and respect for their fans did touch lives. You don’t have to know someone personally to wish… Read more »

Hi Mary. Actually…no…I dont agree with you, Im sorry. I dont agree that everyone here does know or think that the actors are just the characters. There were a plethora of posts about how Brock and the Dutchess are now floating around on clouds, hanging out together, being reunited, etc. Thats just messed talk. People who are dead are dead. They are in the ground. They are not whimsically floating around on clouds. If people put half as much time and concern into their real families as they did into these fake ones, we would have a much better society.

Mary SF

Okay now I think I understand— your issue isn’t with people believing these actors were like their characters, your issue is with the notion of an after life. I happened to agree with you once we are dead our bodies are worm food, but fortunately I also believe we are more than our bodies. I believe everyone has a spirit, a soul, an intangible that makes them, who they are, and I do believe that does live on once our bodies are rotting in the ground. I know not everyone believes that and that is fine, they will not convince… Read more »

Hi Mary. I like your posts. You are very rational and eloquent. Yes, when we die, we are dead. The Bible tells us that. There is no conscious thought, or feeling, or feeling. It is.likened to being asleep. When Jesus returns, that is when.we are resurrected. There is no eternal hell, such a concept is not Biblical and has no truth in what we know of God, who is a Loving Creator, not a torturing psychopath. I meant no disrespect to Beau, or his fans. Like I said, it is sad when anyone dies. But “”fans”just sometimes go overboard and… Read more »

I remember Brock from when the Y&R first started. I remember him playing the role of McKenzie’s dad, and of course as Katherine’s son. It was always so pleasant to see him return.

I loved hearing his voice, it was very unique! We were blessed to have been able to see Brock return for the “Duchess'” memorial. RIP, you will be missed, loved by many.

Mac should be calling Victoria and letting her know that Reed’s grandpa has passed on, since Beau played Mackenzie’s dad on the show, and she’s married to JT now, Victoria’s ex and Reed’s dad. At least it will let folks know that he has gone. Maybe they could say he had an accident while helping to build those homes in New Orleans, the Habitat for Humanity kind of thing he was doing for a while. Billy would be saddened, as he had joined Brock in NOLA for a while to do the work with him. There’s a ton of people… Read more »

Tanner expressed: “Okay, so here’s the thing. I kinda knew. Don’t be mad at me, but I was blown away at the fans’ reaction to this and ‘Sinn’ nation …  I couldn’t believe the support, but, in fact, I’m contractually obligated not to tell you guys and I felt awful about it.”

He also shared that when Steffy (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) and Finn eventually reunite, it will be a major moment for the show and more.

The actor also revealed he and his wife, former B&B star, Kayla Ewell (Ex-Caitlin) are also expecting their second child, a boy!
