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 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?

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

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?

Ana was not like Hillary when she was younger. I’ll bet she will be now.

My how she’s grown up.

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.

Y&R Mal Young please have several seats, more newbies really? enough with the newbies, bring back Tricia Cast as Nina Webster and fire Mal Young the sob is killing Y&R to the ground.

YES! Just like on GH, Y&R has dismissed a legacy family and it sucks!

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. 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.

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?

Bart

Oh, joy – a character from the Maria Arena Bell era is returning – a character nobody misses.

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

Y&R’s Tracy E. Bregman Shares Heartbreak Of Losing Her Home In Southern California Wildfires On ‘The Talk’

The wildfires continue to leave destruction in their path in Southern California as hundreds of thousands in Southern California have had to leave their homes behind.  Many are finding nothing to come back to after what is now called the Woolsey Fire burned down their beloved homes.

One of those victims who lost her home over the weekend to the fires is The Young and the Restless, Tracey E. Bregman (Lauren). She is among other celebrities such as: Miley Cyrus, Gerard Butler, and Neil Young whose houses in the Malibu area were destroyed.

Bregman made a guest appearance on today’s episode of The Talk, revealing what happened when she found her house had been burned to the ground in a heartbreaking moment.

The Daytime Emmy-winner shared: “It’s been surreal.  It’s kind of hard to wrap your mind around … it’s hard to believe all the family celebrations and everything that I had in there is gone.  I woke up thinking, I actually don’t have anything from my past. I have no notes, or cards, or anything like that. But like Miley Cyrus said, I got my kids out, my animals out, we’re alive.”

Tracey added, “This is my third evacuation since I moved there in 2004.  I got my dog, I was able to pack a bag … grab my Emmy, but my fathers NAACP award did not make it out, and he passed away a year and a half ago, so I’m missing that.  I honestly don’t know where to live, what to do. Luckily, I just bought a little place in Nashville, and I think my whole family, we’re going to spend Thanksgiving, actually with my friends Todd and Julie Chrisley, they invited us.”

Eileen Davidson (Ex-Ashley, Y&R) also reported via social media that she is safe but there eas some damage to her home: “After living for 24 hours thinking we lost our house completely we found out yesterday that we only lost the yard around our house. Sweating it out for the next 48 hours and praying for everybody involved in this devastating and horrific fire. Love to all of you.”

At least 370 structures have been destroyed and two people have died in the catastrophic blaze, which has now spread to 92,000 acres as of Monday.

Celebrities such as: Lady Gaga, Kim Kardashian West and Alyssa Milano fled their houses over the weekend to escape the flames and winds.
