Who Should Play The New Role of Esmeralda On The Young and the Restless?

Courtesy/Nickelodeon

Another newbie is coming to The Young and the Restless! This time it looks like it is to beef up the new storyline for Summer Newman  … err… Abbott!   According to CBS Soaps in Depth, the soap opera is looking for a young actress to play the role of Esmeralda!

Esmeralda is set to be, “A young model who ‘is always helpful in showing a ‘newbie’ the ropes.'”   So with that clue, will Summer (Hunter King)  fall into the traps of the competitive world of high-fashion modeling?  Are drugs and/or bulimia on their way?

In our recent interview with Shelly Altman (Y&R co-head writer,) she did tease that Summer would have a big storyline coming up!

So, who do you think should be cast as Esmeralda? What do you think of a storyline about young girls in the modeling world?  Been there, done that?  Could it be something different?  Comment below!

Ok…round two with a bunch of new characters coming from the new writers and JFP. Why? do we need anymore new characters? They don’t know how to use the ones from Jill & Josh’s time together and we now get more….

Nobody at the helm at YR right now has NO CLUE how to write YR & its established cast so “lets bring in several new characters because we don’t know the history of YR” and create their history and fans will love….UGH!

WELL, I don’t like…lets go stronger I hate everything about YR right now and ratings are cracking….UGH!

Like I’ve already said, JFP’s M.O. is: Ashes to ashes, dust to dust, killing Y&R is a must!

I think they should write a ghost story before that show becomes a ghost!!!

Am sure show-killing witch Jill Farren Phelps will find somebody from “Hollywood Heights,” her former stomping grounds.

You wrote UGH a couple times. It could stand for Under General Hospital.

People may be young, but becoming too restless could call for a need to check into General Hospital!!!

I’m loving these DAYS!!!!!!

still trying to ad new characters to make this show interesting,,,don’t think this will do it,,,i tuned out when genie francis was let go,,i tuned in for catherines funeral only to see paul and Christine married,, I mean really,,were they serious on that one,,a new character for an already fairly new character,,aged that is,,,will not peak my interest in the least….why don’t the new writers take some writing lessons from the writers over at general hospital,,in all seriousness I wont miss an eppy of this daytime drama,, I didn’t watch for 15 years but with the respect the writers are showing for the history and actors of general hospital I cant wait for every episode,,,who would have thought that genie francis,, robin matson tritian rogers finola hughs and so many more vets could soar this soap back from the dead,, and im sure ridding itself of jill faron failure didn’t it it too,,,,

After all this time, there is still a place for Genie Francis at DOOL, esp. with the return of DH. Her character of Diana Coleville was last with Roman whom turned out to be John after she left. Great stories can come from that!

Totally agree on GH. It’s the one I watch first always. It’s really great right now. Loving Days too.

“Right On: The Money”

jeez… this should be the creed of Y&R

I’ve never left a show… I did Y&R.

I’m SSSSOOOO ‘happy’ with GH and DAYS

I left when they split up Sharon and Adam….

APB: letting go Genie Francis was THE ‘crime’

what can I say… I know i’ve watched Y&R for a good 20 years…. and I have strong feelings for

sad… but, true… the demise…. and hopeful resurgence will

Esmeralda– really? What kind of name is that? Is she a witch? No disrespect intended to any witches or Esmeraldas out there, but seriously that what I thought of the minute I read the name. I guess my age is showing– growing up on Bewitched LOL.

Be weird if she looked like Agness Moorehead…lol

Esmeralda was played by Alice Ghostley– she was the housekeeper whose magic kept goofing up. Maybe that is the new trend in soap opera character naming– old t.v. shows from the sixties.

i put my second reply to you under Johnny…My bad A.M. played Endora…i shouldve rembered Alice Ghostly who made an appearance as her bewitched character on Passions several years ago…

I think Hunter King is sooooo A Awesome Actress, above the top!! Adding more people brake up seeing the same faces that you did for 30 years. As for General Hospital. They had the same actors on everyday for 10 plus years, bringing back all the classic and new writer’s was the ticket

Gee, what FOJ can we expect now???

Although I have been amazed at the performances of Billy Miller, Amelia Heinle, Elizabeth Hendrickson, et al with the Delia storyline the rest of the show has me pressing the FF button.

If they want to do something…work toward making Victor less of an a**hole. His behavior and comments, especially about Billy after Delia’s death, just keep making him more & more despicable. There have to be two sides to a character to make him watchable. So far, Victor is just dark & mean and I hate him in the screen.

Mary SF
Mary SF

That’s the problem in a nutshell– the lack of character development on this show. They say the show is about character driven stories, but when most of your characters are one dimensional without depth or growth the stories seem pointless. Victor used to be an interesting character in the beginning but now–he is boring. I thought I saw a glimmer of change when he seemed to warm up to Adam after he took a bullet for him, but they ruin that and now the two are at war again, for no good reason. I hate Victor’s new fondness for calling Jack — Jackass Abbott. It was amusing once, now it is annoying because he says it all the time. So agree, characters need work all across the board.

Patrick
Patrick

Victor dissing – because ‘he’ “can” ?

Victor – no respect for his daughter Victoria’ husband – Billy
Victor – bellowing Jackass Abbott. he’s feuding alone
Victor – not fully acknowledging Adam…. big mistake…. his misfortune

Victor – what’s he going to do to Dylan. mistreat him because he does Nikki

And this Esmeralda thing? Totally agree..stupid name. Unnecessary. This show needs to xommit to Summer being an Abbott and scrap the I’ll planned Sharon switching test thing. Whatever happened tto the NORMAL teen storyline planned btween Summer and Fen??

my bad…A.M. played Endora…lol

Sorry Johnny…my Endora reply was meant for Mary SF

And Victor…yeah…could he have come off as a more callous vindictive bastard???? He is alive because o an abbotts heart….his grandson will see because of delia…not to mention that Delia was his de facto granddaughter. Could he have not shown one single moment of human emotion?? These writers seem to think that shocking cruel behaviour is drama. What is most shocking is when nasty characters show real emotion. How refreshing and unexpected if Victor has hugged Billy with an extended hand and heart.

Johnny
Johnny

I am really shocked by the lack of tears an emotion Delia’s death has produced. This show is not playing the moments. Why could we not see Chloe telling Esther and give Kate Linder a chance to shine? Why has Jack not shed one tear? Or Traci? She knows full well what it is like to lose a daughter. They are so concerned with beating us over the head that Adam did it…This stoey could refresh his show…bring a new friendship between Chloe and Sharon….ahow that Victor cares about ANYONE…they are so wrapped up in telling the story they want to push…they are missing he human moments. If they are going to tell an epic story of this magnitude and this sadness…PLAY IT! Let us see what these actors can do.

Mary SF

I think the worst reaction I saw to date was Abby’s. She talked about all these moments she had with her niece– moments none of us saw on screen. It was just so unbelievable. And Cane– what a disappointment– he thought Delia was his at one point in time and he named her- was looking forward to seeing his reaction to the news, but didn’t get to see it on screen just after the fact and from what I saw it was the same as if read in the paper about any stranger. Other than some moments with Billy and Victoria and Nicholas and Jill I have been disappointed by missed opportunities here I mean if you are going go down the route you might as well go for it.

They should put either Victoria Rowell in the role and explain that Esmeralda is actually one of the walking dead, or have Eric Braeden do a little crossdressing and have him do this in addition to his role as Victor. And if they use him they won’t have to bring in the undead angle since that’s already obvious with him.

Or what about a hand puppet? One of those can’t possibly be any worse than the actors they have playing Devon, Nick, Summer, Chavez, Dylan or Chloe. And THINK of the money they’d save!

All of you need to shut up. New characters come in whenever a new head scribe or team comes into play. It’s just how it is. How can you judge before even seeing storylines and/or actors? Shame on all of you!

Johnny

Lol. No not shame on any of us. As a lifelong soap fan I can predict where these shows are going two years down the road. Many cases in point…I read a small casting notice in 2010 that Jeff Branson was hired in a role that would interact with the chracter of Chance. Months before it was revealed…I said that will be he first kid Nina gave up. I was right. When the casting announcement came out that Maura was hired as Diane…I said “Epic disastrous fail”. No one will argue with me. When they hired Steve Burton….a beloved fan favourite…I said tying him only to Avery, at best an I’ll defined newcomer, was a total mistake. Have I not been proven right? No once cares about Dylan and avery’s past because no one cares about Dylan or Avery. Avery is what Sharon should have been all along and used to be. Had they done the story of Nikki’s son at first…when he drama and the conflict was right there…it could have worked. We viewers are not stupid….and we don’t have to wait for something to know it won’t work. A character named Esmeralda? On Young and Restless and not Passions? EPIC fail.

jawohl mein führer!

Do you still eat everything on your plate even if you don’t like it?
After all these years of watching these shows can you still not see the writing on the wall? Johnny, who’s posted in reply to your thread certainly can, and so can a lot of the rest of us.

All I’d add to what Johnny wrote is that much of what has come to pass on Y&R was predicted by many of once we saw that JFP had been put in charge. We’d all seen how she had degraded the other shows that she helmed and how badly she treated the casts and how she never had a bad idea she didn’t put into practice. We saw, to steal Johnny’s words, EPIC DISASTROUS FAIL”.

So why don’t YOU shut up?

Esmeralda…Oh, really??? To me, that’s more like the name of a soap opera character that is a WITCH. And, besides, back in the day, Passions (a soap that I TRULY MISS) had a character named Esmeralda…who was (yep)…a WITCH. But, at least Passions’s version (or whatever) of Esmeralda was played to comic perfection by Georgia Engel (from The Mary Tyler Moore Show days…lol). Here is who I think should play newbie character Esmeralda on Y&R…NO ONE!!!!! All this is is YET another newbie character shoved down our throats and against our will…”courtesy” of Jill Farren Phelps..Bottom Line here: How much more D-A-M-A-G-E is JFP gonna do to Y&R?!?!? ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!!!!!!!!!!
