Looks like Genoa City’s Devon Hamilton’s (Bryton James) familial ties will be expanding, with the return of his sister, Ana Hamilton.

The Young and the Restless has announced that Loren Lott is the recast for the role last seen in 2012.  Back then, Ana was played by Jamia Simone Nash.

Lott is a former American Idol contestant when she was a finalist back in 2015.  Look for Loren to make her Y&R debut on the upcoming November 28th episode of the top-rated daytime drama series.

Most recently, Loren starred on Broadway in Once On This Island as Ti Moune.  Her acting credits include: Greenleaf on OWN, BET’s The Quad, and a digital series, Powers.

TV Insider broke the casting news.

So, interested to see what happens when Devon’s sister shows up in GC? Comment below.

Why? Can anybody tell me? Why? Did we really need another newbie on this show? I cared about the character so much back then that I forgot who she is. So why?

Sure, I’ll tell you why. With Lily in prison and Hilary dead, there is no strong African-American woman on the canvas. (I’m not counting Lily and Cane’s daughter, who is still virtually a child.) Everyone deserves representation, and Y&R has a history of strong black female characters. The character isn’t a newbie, even if you don’t remember her for whatever reason, and she’s tied to a core member of the cast. I hope the charisma she must have shown to play Ti Moune in “Once on This Island” (that’s the demanding leading role) translates to TV and she shakes things up in Genoa City!

Fair enough. You bring up some good points. I just think they are introducing too many characters in too short a time. I am enjoying Lola and maybe I will enjoy Duh’s little sister too.

Oh, I see, the quota is down? Good answer, NOT! What about the quota of good stories?

Celia

I actually welcome the idea, as long as she sings, LOL. No, seriously……I remember Devon’s sister ( as a child) was a singer. Perhaps, Devon will give her a job as one.
You’re right…..Lily is absent; Hilary left, so…..
She and Nate will hook up? They’re not blood-related, albeit I do understand James’ objection to new casting. The revolving door never seems to stop. These new characters never stay put—constantly coming and going, making it difficult to form a connection.
The worst for me is the Rosales team. ….why? If I may echo James….. The siblings were thrown at us senselessly——at least Ana is a known character. I’d rather have her than Tessa…..
Great chance for the TPTB to get rid of Tessa……I can’t wait!!
She’s the blackmailer. How did she find out about what the women did to JT?

Harry

I agree, we had an entire family of four (now including Rey’s wife) thrown at us in a short amount of time. However, I do really adore Lola. She’s a little spit fire with a strong work ethic. I love her food truck and how motivated she is to make it as a Cuban chef. She makes me hunger for plantains! Moreover, she won’t accept any help from Kyle. I think Kyle and Lola have a lot of chemistry-they may be the best thing going on Y&R right now which isn’t saying a whole heck of a lo! But still, I love them together.

Harry
Harry

RIGHT? I mean, James, I had two reactions upon reading this post. 1. Another newbie? Hell, they just moved in the entire Rosales family and now I understand Rey’s wife is about to shore up to town. 2. This means Duh Yawn is not going anywhere. In addition to the aforementioned Rosales family, we also have Doctor Nate, and the new Jabot chemist whose name escapes me. This totals six new characters. Meanwhile, I guess Paul Williams, a legacy character has left the building, and unlike Eileen Davidson, he was given no good bye party–not even a gold watch. In fact, Paul Williams isn’t even mentioned.

Sorry Harry, did you not hear Rey talking to someone he addressed as Chief? Was that supposed to be Paul, I wonder? What an insult! I would rather have Paul than these six placeholders you mentioned. Now they are gearing up for Rosalesville, and the new lab woman, whom they seem to want to throw Jack’s way (perish the thought).Gosh, can things get any worse? Oh yes, I forgot our gruesome twosome, Tessa and Mariah, and our all knowing student of the Dalai Lama, Nate. What on God’s green earth were they thinking of bringing him on?

Harry
Harry

Violet, as the youngsters say,”My bad.” They also say “right?” with a question mark as to indicate that they agree with the person to whom they are responding. And I could NOT agree with you more, Miss Violet (And I have been agreeing with you a lot lately!). Not only was Doug William’s unceremoniously fired, his character just vanished with nary a word to explain his absence. Of course this is going to set up collective fan resentment at Rey’s expense. There are just too many new characters being force fed upon viewers in a very short window of time. And you speak of Doctor Nat? You mean, the hunky Ken doll who wears nothing but a stethoscope above the waist and who can’t act his way out of surgeon’s mask? The Ken doll who suddenly appears in a karate uniform? I fully expect a narrator to announce, “Introducing, Dr Nate, parts and accessories sold separately.”
Now, back to Paul. A long, long time ago when I was in middle school, I watched Y&R because I really enjoyed the Irish Catholic family known as The Williams’ family. They were the blue collar family sandwiched in the middle of the wealthy families of Genoa City like the Abbotts and the Chancelors and later, the Newmans. The Williams were the meat and potatoes of GC and there was a streak of realism running through them. I knew many Mary Williams, Paul’s Bible thumping mother who served up scripture along with her pot roast. She had doilies all over her home, croquet blankets on her couch and picture of Christ on the cross in the bathrooms. I mean, the last part is what I visualized anyway. Mary was the mother-in-law from hell attacking Paul’s wives and girl friends while treating her grown son like a precious, saintly little boy. She was wonderful and believable and so was Paul. Folks say they won’t miss Paul because he had not had a story in quite some time and this is true. But that is hardly Davidson’s fault–when he was given a story he delivered. He was able to play the tough cop who also wore his heart on his sleeve. I will never forget his anguished performance when he had to shoot his son in order to save a hostage’s life. It was gut wrenching. He deserved better.

Hi Harry, right? We are cooking on the same burner today, remembering Paul and his mom, Mary. She was something else! You mentioned pot roast and I immediately thought of the spareribs and saurkraut, she made especially for Paul. Incidently, I’ve cooked plenty of those back in the day, for my family. I laughed my head off, with your descripion of Nate. Now, how would you know he wears that stethoscope above the waist? Well, enjoy him while he’s still in single mode. I bet he gets together with Ana. I am liking the Morales clan, except for Mia, there’s only one word for her. She’s trying to put her ownership stamp on Rey, who acts like he cant stand her, and has the hots for Sharon, who sure got over Nick quick! I also like Kyle and Lola, and her Cuban food sounds yummy. I live in So. Ca,a lot of Mexican food,but no Cuban, but imagine it’s very similar.

Harry…to me, “Dr. Nate” needs to go back to acting class…AND STAY THERE…lol.

Have a good one, Harry.

Don’t know that I’m interested in this. Are they getting rid of Shauna? Please. At least she hasn’t been on recently.

She’s a recurring player, so they only need her when the story calls for it. And, right now, it doesn’t call for it.

Doc. Nate is very handsome but–
nothing sexy about him and that’s a shame- he could bring it if he wasn’t written/ portrayed as a mannequin ..

someone needs to put a firecracker in his pants to get some action out of him bwahaa!

Scott (ATWT Fan)
Scott (ATWT Fan)

This is very exciting. I liked Ana back in the day, and this casting seems to be spot on! I’m hoping this brings some exciting story, too! And they said the Winters’ family were on their way out… WRONG! Again, online “speculation” is just that… “speculation.”

Richard Danner

Why does everyone keep saying that Mal Young is killing the show? It was Eileen Davidson’s choice to leave. She WANTED to. Ana is NOT a new character. Y&R has a history of strong african american women, so for me this is welcomed. I have been looking forward to them bringing her back and she is gorgeous. As far as Paul, i am against axing legacy characters but there was no telling how much his salary was. They will probably bring him back at some point. He didnt have an exactly sizzling story and he has no kids in GC. His marriage to Christine is honestly as exciting as watching paint dry. They havent been a hot couple since the 90s. Sorry. His last good story was Danny/Christine/Paul triangle…again in the 90s early 2000s. As far as the Rosales family, they have been brough on WAY too fast. I get diversity but slow it down. A brother/sister pair wouldve been fine, but 3 siblings AND an incoming ex wife is overkill. The actor playing Arturo is not attractive. Rey seems forced with Sharon. Jordi Vilasuso hasnt had a decent soap role since GL. His stint on DAYS was horrible as well. Nate, a legacy character is underutilized. They need to bring back Olivia and settle whatever beef with Victoria Rowell and resurrect Drucilla. I would watch that!

All the new characters that are being hired, they could easily pay for Paul and bring back his daughter Heather.

y&R going down big time great storyline years ago with shiela stealing Lauren’s baby Catherine chancellor being kidnapped and Larry living I. Her home good storylines arturo stinks talks with marbles in his mouth and a skunk on his head ray does nothing but stare and always in your face and the new woman they bring in to replace Ashley all new people who bring nothing to the soapboring

Soaphound

Ana was a pushy, obnoxious child with a big mouth whom I used to wish gone every time she was on. Sure, let’s bring her back. Meanwhile we’re reeling from the loss of major legacy characters like Paul and Ashley and Rey “the Great Unshaven” Rosales is supposed to fill the void? WHAT ARE THEY THINKING?

Celia
Celia

LOL, Soaphound, you tell it As you see it. Yes, Ana was as obnoxious as “divan”…..but, she’s all grown up and if her casting means getting rid of Tessa, I’m all in!! I disliked her BEFORE she even stepped foot in GC……and, I hadn’t even heard of her!! How unreasonable am I?

Why Devon’s sister? Will she fall for Cane to cause a love triangle? How about a new love interest for Devon? Ahere was she for hilary’s death? If an adult in 2018 it aint too hard to come for a damn funeral in the middle of the country!

Too many new faces and not enough story build up for them. The chemist is telling Billy – a board member n stock holder off and then thinking after 3 days she has the right to tell Jack Abott how to treat the woman who cheated on him with his brother and her ex hisband!!! Seriously tell her to know her place AND THAT AINT SEXIST.

As for the instant cuba clan, while i like arturo n lola REY AND HIS SOON TO ARRIVE WIFE are pushing it. I dont care for him and whether his wofe cheated on him . He’s a dick and needs to go.

Now devons soster. Ugh

Ewwwwww. Right, Jay? I can’t stand Nate…..not only that; I wish I knew what his role is?? Baffling….I think he has the hotties for Victoria.
I am not a fan of the Hamilton/Winters ….nor do I like the Rosales brothers. Lola is Ok, I guess….
Rey’s wife?……Hmmmm. What a contrary woman. She’s pretty tenacious, I must say. Rey has no interest in her–sexual or otherwise. Yet, she clings!! I don’t care for these people…..unfortunately Sharon is unwittingly caught up in their stupid drama!
Tell me you agree, Jay….You better. LOL.❤️

jaybird369
jaybird369

Celia…you are too hilarious…lol. Anyway, I agree with everything that you said. Also, to me, Mia (Rey’s wife) has some serious jealousy and possessiveness issues. Yikes. Oh…the fact that Mia and Rey’s brother Auturo had an affair…PAGING JERRY SPRINGER…lol. Oh…and BTW, Celia…you are NOT unreasonable…I (also) want Tessa GONE!!!!! To me, whenever Tessa opens her stupid mouth, Mariah ends up getting hurt…and lied to. Beyond dumb.

Later, my friend.

I tuned in yesterday since I was home. I haven’t watched since Eileen left. The show is awful. The focus is on Rey and HIS ENTIRE family. No thanks. Won’t be tuning in anytime (again) soon. Also, Devon is one of the worst characters on the show, so, NO THANKS! & don’t get me started on “Messa.” BO-RING!

Judy

Judy
Judy

Let me say that Arturo Rey and that horrendous woman that brought in to play his wife is a big mouth no talent blimp Arturo has no appeal his skunk on his head is hideous this show had class now it’s in the ditch why are they digging Anna up another minority to bring in bc Lilly is gone now they will beat that to death no thanks no class the Abbott family was about success and how a company was built Paul is gone and we now hv lurch Rey so sad get rid of the writers bring Adam back Chelsea

Violet Lemm

Judy, I must say that you have said some things, a lot of us are thinking, but afraid to say. Everyone is in fear of saying the wrong thing, for fear of being called a racist or offending, but guess what, things are worse than they’ve ever been.

Judy

At first I had no memory that Devon had a sister, then I remember she was last seen as a young girl singing. So she should be in her late teens or early 20s now. This woman looks at least 30 right?

Baby Bear

Hollywood Studios, Producers & Guilds Send Plan To Gov. Newsom and Gov. Cuomo For COVID-19 Production Restart Guidelines

On Monday, the two states with the most television and film production in the United States (California and New York) received a plan from many Hollywood studios, producers and the entertainment and production guilds of a plan and outline to be able to rejigger and restart production of your favorite shows and films.  This includes the soaps: General Hospital, The Young and the Restless, The Bold and the Beautiful and Days of our Lives.

Via Deadline: In an effort to get the industry moving-forward again where jobs were lost or put on hold, and production were completely stalled out-of-the-blue, the guidelines submitted by “The Industry-Wide Labor-Management Safety Committee Task Force (the “Task Force”) is asking for consideration and adoption for the resumption of motion picture, television, and streaming productions in an environment that minimizes the risk of contracting or spreading COVID-19,” says a report for Governors Gavin Newsom of California and Andrew Cuomo of New York.

You can read the details of the report here.  While there has been no word from the Governors and their offices if they have seen the report, bets are that several more steps will be needed before anyone would head and report back to a set yet.

As one would expect, limiting contact, social distancing, regular temperature checks, ways to handle props, and a COVID-19 compliance officer for all productions are part of the proposal.   As well as virtual writers room meetings, avoiding filming on-location as much as possible and filming in front of large audiences.

So, glad to know that this major step has been taken to try to get production back on track in Hollywood and New York? Comment below.

British Soap ‘Coronation Street’ Set To Resume Production Next Week Following COVID-19 Shutdown

Will American soaps soon follow the Brits, and be able to start up your favorite soap towns again? While production entities await for guidelines from the state of California and the city of Los Angeles, across the bond, ITV’s Coronation Street has set next Tuesday, June 9th to begin filming new episodes of the popular drama.

Coronation Street had been on  10-week mandatory shutdown due to the coronavirus pandemic sweeping our globe.  The return to start up the show keeps the soap on-air throughout July and then ongoing.  There will be three episodes filmed each week at their studios in Manchester.

Along with ITV’s Emmerdale, and  other programs, Coronation Street is returning to production under the UK’s guidelines and  safety protocols for COVID-19.

According to Deadline that will include: crew members designated to a specific studio or exterior lot  …  social distancing will be observed … cast and crew will have daily temperature checks, while older and more vulnerable members of the team won’t be part of the new episodes during the initial period of filming.

In a statement, John Whiston, ITV’s managing director of continuing drama, said: “Getting to this point has taken a huge amount of work and goodwill from a huge number of people, not least our cast and crew. With the peak past, all indications are that the time is right for a return to filming.  And with the extensive protocols we have put in place, we have made our workplace as safe as possible. I’m sure our audience will appreciate having the show they love continue on air. For many who have written in it is a vital escape from all the fears and stresses this virus brings in its wake.”
