Y&R Brings Back The Role Of Devon’s Sister, Ana Hamilton

Photo: CBS

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… Read more »

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?

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… Read more »

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,… Read more »

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… Read more »

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

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.… Read more »

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… Read more »

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!

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.”

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.… Read more »

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
Guest
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.

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.❤️

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!

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?
