The Young and the Restless has aged Victoria Newman (Amelia Heinle) and JT Hellstrom’s (Thad Luckinbill) son to a teenager.

According to Serial Scoop, soap newcomer Tristan Lake Leabu will be taking over the role most recently played by Max Page.  As fans know, Page joined the show in 2009, but left in 2012 and again in 2015 to have heart surgery.

Last month the CBS soap opera put out a casting call for the role of “Wes” who was described as a good-natured, willful and sensitive teen, who takes solace in playing his guitar.

The role was said to have begun taping a few weeks ago on November 15th.

Leabu took to Instagram on November 30 showing him walking into the CBS Television City where Y&R tapes.

His other credits include: Superman Returns, The Christmas Spirit and Hawaii-Five-O

So, what do you think about Y&R bringing in a teen Reed?  Excited to see Tristan in the role? Comment below!

Not surprised that the show is bringing in the next generation of Newmans since the last couple of writers ruined any potential Noah and Summer might’ve had…

Noah and Summer were aged to quickly and not properly casted!

How right you are, Timmmy.
This kid looks like he could be Caine’s son….striking resemblance…..sad.
Reed needed to be sorased, I think….for the simple reason that we never saw him, nor heard Victoria or anyone mention him.
As an ‘older’ child, he has the option of making the decision of living wherever and with whomever he chooses.

Noah and Summer are brother and sister. Dad Nick. Rember?

I know they are brother and sister. I was referring to the fact that the writers did not take the time to build up the characters so that they would be strong enough to drive story as the next generation Newmans.

I’ll be honest, I was observing how much he resembles Thad Luckinbill and Amelia, esp since they are married off the show and they do have children together !! I loved to hear Thad sing and play his guitar and I hope Reed does the same!!

jt and colleen were the sweetest…imo the last successful young coupling y n r has had since, they could ve been the next nick and sharon highschool sweetheart supercouple. no young couple has had the same magic since. summer, noah…nope
but colleen was killed off unnecesarily. i missed them. maybe sally can bring colleen back from the dead and jt can return with his son and the two can be reunited

FINALLY—- I am not a fan of SORASing, but honestly it was beyond silly they never mentioned Victoria’s oldest child- and by the sounds of it he will be carbon copy of his father in his teenage years— and that new character Ivy they are casting, will be his girlfriend— could this be the reincarnation of the Glow by Jabot gang — it was the last time this show got their teen set correct– Colleen, young Billy, JT, and Mac

I guess they are going to regroup a new teen set and he is first on the list. I wonder if company for him is soon to follow. I also wonder if he is going to reconnect with Billy. I remember Reed and Billy bonded over video games back in the day. I always thought Faith and Reed were close in age. I hope they don’t age her anytime soon. She is such a terrific little actress. But this “newbie” they found, in my opinion bears a strong resemblance to Victoria. Let’s see what he can do. Maybe this will… Read more »

I think I am a little excited to hear of this. I figure if he’s Victoria’s son then that means he’s got Newman blood in him which means it gives Victor somebody new to play with. This could take us into some good story but I would like it more if Thad Luckinbill came back as JT from time to time (or for good).

I’m with you Violet! Usually not a fan of the teen stories because a) they are only there to cause trouble for the parents; and b) they usually can’t act their way out of a paper bag.
Hopefully the new writing team will do better.

Victoria has enough kids she doesnt spend enough time with! PLUS, this young man looks nothing like her or his dad, he looks like Cain’s son!

WHATTTTT!!!!?????? He looks like he’s in his 20s!!!!!!!!

And he plays the guitar. Good grief. They tried that with Noah at one point, didn’t they? I wish they’d give good story to those they have on canvas and wouldn’t mind a decent story with Noah sans Marissa. I am not interested in this grownup Reed who looks like he could date Victoria.

His dad JT use to play the guitar and even sing if I remember correctly when he was courting Colleen.

2001…so he would be 16 now in real time. What age is he supposed to be now if SORAS is to be factored in?

Reed was born on December 3, 2007, so he just turned 9-years-old.

I appreciate the SORAS of Reed, as it’s about time his character be a staple on the canvas; however, this is something about Tristan Lake Leabu that seems off-putting to me.

Am hoping Reed’s arrival will give Victoria Newman some better focus. I have not liked her character for some time. Seems she and Billy finally got together and writers upended that before it really took root. I would love to see a strong woman, mother, and businesswoman who defies the Newman ways. I would like to see Victoria and Nick be more contrary to Victor and Nikki. I like to see the strong siblings if we can never have a solid marriage anchor the show. And, no, Victor and Nikki have not a strong marriage. It is almost laughable anymore,… Read more »

i wish they would bring adam newman back on the show . he is the reason why some people watch the young and the restless to see adam newman. adam is most of people’s favorite character. he belongs with chelsea and his son connor and his family. since adam is gone his brother nick is with chelsea and connor. travis crawford broke victoria’s heart. he cheated on her. victoria’s ex told her that her boyfriend cheated on her. travis is a jerk . he should stay away from victor newman’s daughter victoria. i want her and billy back together. billy… Read more »

Adam is NOT coming back. The writers don’t want to deal with that character for a while to come. As for Michael Muhney it seems he went the route of Victoria Rowell as far as CBS is concerned same for Ronnie Moss Ridge on B&B. Yes no matter how popular you can be replaced and/or blacklisted even in the soap industry. A big ego makes for a null back account if you go out all types of wrong.

I couldn’t agree with you 100%. if all this swept under the rug… and it being a PROFESSIONAL environment… and that it’s a business… and that Michael Muhney , was, IN FACT … their BEST ratings, fans, and the audience, acknowledged his contribution… stratosphere everything that is: Y&R / CBS / Sony. let bygones be… that if it were me… I would revel in what could be… and fire on all cylinders because Michael Muhney as Adam… REIGNS SUPREME.. in all of this, genre Y&R will never be that big again, without Michael Muhney and Billy Miller. it’s one of… Read more »

Mal Young and Sally Sussman… perhaps… need to address this and … as the audience did… with… Victoria Rowell… and Brenda Dickson… just put this to rest. I don’t know… CBS… “thankfully” has the best daytime block… of shows to catapult their daytime lineup… forever #1. why not go that extra mile… and cement how huge Michael Muhney returning would .. be the icing on the cake.. and then… and only then… would I rest on my laurels… and push the whole CBS lineup… over the top forever.

OLTL Alum Arlene Dahl Dead At 96, Son Lorenzo Lamas Shares: “She Was The Most Positive Influence In My Life”

Another loss for the soap world and its extended family.  Arlene Dahl, who had a notable career in film and television, and who appeared on both One Life to Live and All My Children, has passed away at the age of 96.

Her son, former Falcon Crest and The Bold and the Beautiful star, Lorenzo Lamas (Ex-Lance and Ex-Hector, respectively), shared the news via his Facebook page: “Mom passed away this morning in New York. She was the most positive influence on my life. I will remember her laughter, her joy, her dignity as she navigated the challenges that she faced. Never an ill word about anyone crossed her lips. Her ability to forgive left me speechless at times. She truly was a force of nature and as we got closer in my adult life, I leaned on her more and more as my life counselor and the person I knew that lived and loved to the fullest. My sympathies go to her loving husband @marcrosennyc who, for the last 37 years, made her life so wonderful and joyous. Love you mom forever ♥️ #ArleneDahl #Moviestar #legend #mom #RIP”

Dahl came on to One life to Live as Lucinda Schenk Wilson, the selfish and manipulative mother of Mimi King played by Kristin Meadows.  Arlene made appearances on the ABC soap starting in 1981 and eventually was offered a one-year contract that took her through till 1984. A decade later, Dahl came on to play Lady Lucille on All My Children for a short time.

On One Life to Live, Arlene mixed it up with Phillip Carey’s Asa Buchanan and Jeremy Slate’s Chuck Wilson.  Dahl is also well-known as one of the regular panelists on the game show, What’s My Line?

While still working in TV and films, Arlene branched out into beauty and cosmetics, eventually becoming an executive and beauty columnist.

Throughout her life, Arlene was married six times.  She had been married to Marc Rosen since 1984 and they remained together till her death.  She is survived by her son Lorenzo, two other children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren.

Guiding Light’s Robert Newman Pays Tribute to the Brilliance of Lisa Brown

On Sunday, longtime Guiding Light mainstay, Robert Newman (Ex-Josh Lewis), shared a heartfelt message on his Facebook page on the death of his former co-star, Lisa Brown (Ex-Nola Reardon).

As previously reported, Brown passed away earlier this week at the age of 67 from cancer. She portrayed the beloved role of Nola on the CBS soap opera from 1980-1985 and was front and center in many stories which featured Nola’s antics, fantasies, and of course, her love affair with Quint, the late Michael Tylo.

In his message on Brown’s death, Robert Newman expressed: “I was greatly saddened to hear of the sudden death of the great Lisa Brown. When I first joined the show in 1981, Lisa was pretty much the center of everything. A real whirlwind. Her work with the late Michael Tylo was fantastic. I particularly have fond memories of Nola’s fantasies …Wizard of Oz, Casablanca, etc. I don’t think I was ever a part of those fantasies, but I remember watching them being taped in the studio and she was just amazing.”

Newman goes on to say: “One of my fondest Lisa memories, however, was sitting in the audience at the Winter Garden Theater in NYC watching Lisa head up the cast of 42nd Street with Lee Roy Reams in 1981 or so. It was one of those times when you see a colleague that you know from one genre, Daytime Drama, in an entirely different genre, Musical Comedy, and you are completely surprised and blown away. Again, she was just fantastic in the role and I as a fellow musical comedy performer, I had great, great respect for her. Below is a clip from a television performance of her as Peggy in 42nd Street. Her death at such a young age is a great loss to the daytime community. Love and prayers to her family and friends.”

Michael Fairman TV also shares below the video posted by Robert below, which reminds us of just how multi-talented Lisa was for her fans, the audience, and to all that knew her. On a personal note: “Lisa always performed at the ‘Night of the Daytime Stars’ benefit for AMFAR in New York City during the AIDS pandemic that I created and produced.  It was the annual event held the night before the Daytime Emmys, and she was always willing to lend her support and talents to help others in need.”
