The Young and the Restless Casting Nerdy/Cyber Life Gal, Somewhat Socially Awkward Who Will Blossom!

Doesn’t this headline sound a bit familiar?  On the surface it’s a tried and true soap opera formula; think DAYS Chloe (Nadia Bjorlin) AKA Ghoul Girl, or GH’s version of Ugly Betty, Sabrina Santiago (Teresa Castillo), and others over time.   Now whether or not this character falls anywhere near that pattern remains to be seen.

However, according to the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest on newsstands now, the number one soap opera has put out a casting call for the role of Ilsa.

The part is said to be recurring and the series is looking for an actress in her 20’s. The casting breakdown read as follows:  A native of Sweeden (or perhaps Denmark or Switzerland) who was raised in the U.S. and has no accent.  She is is described as, “A genius child prodigy.”  Ilsa is pretty, but her passion for the nerdy cyber life/work has left her a tad socially awkward and a little quirky- however Ilsa will blossom.

So put on your casting director hats and let us know who do you think fits the bill?  What actress from daytime or primetime would you like to see on Y&R? After reading the character description, what story and with whom do you think “Ilsa” might find herself involved in within Genoa City?  Share your thoughts below!

A representative from the Nordic countries! 🙂
God kveld! ja! som er en god en sum Norsk ..lol

A Hindi girl would be much better as a ”nerdy/cyber like gal, somewhat socially awkward who will blossom!”’ /

And, beautiful, Su. I wouldn’t mind having Florencia Lozano on Y&R or GH, either. The three of them were so good together on OLTL.
Su. You confuse me. Are you acting coy on purpose….adding a little mystery, eh?
So are you part Nordic and part Indian? Are you part Viking as I? Lol.

I would be so happy with a Summer recast! I have a feeling she will not be going any where since she is a friend of JFP.

I think Eric Braeden is fond of her, as well. HE has a lot of say on that soap!

Oh my gosh I would love a recast of Summer but remember there is suppose to be a big Halloween party and 4 people die. I’m thinking Joe”who is never on anymore”,, Marissa,her husband and hopefully Summer. What do you think?

I’m so excited that another new character is being introduced. That will be WAY better than giving Eileen Davidson a real storyline…

Well we know now that Adam cannot stop Paragon so this little sweetie will be brought to Genoa City to solve Victor’s cyber issues AND Grandpa Mustache will play match maker with her and his grandson, Noah. She is a geeky nerd who is very clumsy and awkward and Noah doesnt even notice her. Victor pushes them together in hopes that it will divert Noah’s attention away fro Marissa! There, it took me less than five minutes, check please!

This kinda sounds like Gwen. When Hilary picked her to be Devon’s beard she was apparently nerdy, but cleaned up good.

When will soaps learn? We don’t need/want new characters. Write good stories for the ones you have already!

Soooo basically a female version of Spinelli?

As the World Turns Cast To Perform Virtual Reading Of Final Episode

In a once-in-a soap-lifetime event during the Covid-19 pandemic, the cast of As the World Turns will reunite for one night online for a virtual reading of the CBS daytime drama’s final episode that aired back 10 years ago this past September,

This livestream event is for a good cause and is brought to you by former ATWT cast member, Trent Dawson’s (Ex-Henry) theatre group The Katonah Classic Stage.  Dawson is the artistic director there.

Over 26 veteran cast members from ATWT, including Larry Bryggman, Don Hastings, Kathryn Hays, Elizabeth Hubbard, Michael Park and more are set to participate in the reading plus some surprise guests.

The show will be streamed  n The Locher Room YouTube channel, 0n Wednesday night, October 28th at 8 p.m. EST/5 p.m. PST, where fans will also  have the opportunity to comment and ask questions of the cast,

The event is asking for a $15 donation to be able to see it and you can click here for more info!

Working with Katonah Classic Stage (KCS), a professional, nonprofit theatre group an hour north from New York City, Dawson is hoping this event will help those in need.  KCS has access to outdoor performance space that can provide a safer, more  socially-distant experience for the artists and the audience. The fundraiser not only  applies to salaries, but to health care as well; without employment most artists are ineligible for health coverage during a time when such insurance is critically important.

So what do you think of getting these beloved stars from ATWT together for a good cause to relive and read the script of the final episode from Oakdale? Comment below.
