Y&R Casting New Role Looking For Female Mid 30’s to Early 40’s: Who Would You Suggest For The Part?

Looks like the influx of new faces will continue in Genoa City under The Young and the Restless’ head writer Mal Young, who also serves as the series executive producer.

The series is looking to cast an actress in the series regular (we would assume on-contract) role of Nora.  The character is said to be “an uncommon beauty, more amplified by an inner fire and ambition.”

From the casting call indications are that she will be in the cosmetics business and probably working for Jabot.

The description also reveals that the new character is “not formally schooled in cosmetic skill, but her natural intelligence powers and an instinct for knowing exactly what makes a woman look and feel great,” are part of the background given for her.

According to Soap Opera Digest, the actress is schedule to being taping in just a few weeks on October 5th.

With Daytime Emmy-winner Eileen Davidson (Ashley) exiting the show on-air this fall, is the woman to come in and help beef up the Jabot side of things?

Now. it’s time for you to put your casting director hats on!  Who would you like to see from daytime or primetime television who fits the bill head to Genoa City?  Share your suggestions and thoughts via the comment section below.

Maybe a better idea would be to write actual stories for the characters we already have on the canvas instead of bringing on more people to stand around waiting for something to do.

Mal is watching what Frank does over at GH. Load up the boat and see what swims!

Yes, Y&R fans will now know the sadness and loss than GH fans have felt for a couple decades.

No one. It’s getting ridiculous that Y&R is casting all of these new roles and not utilizing the established cast that they have.

Is a new role really needed? Utilize what you have! Is this why Doug Davidson’s role was cut, to make room for Mal Young’s creations and to use his salary and Eileen’s and Mishael’s?

How about instead of ‘ looking for..’ just for starters. ?!
Y n r puts out a ‘ ‘ asking for the return of faves ‘?.. like …
Avery?!.. Nina?!.. Jill?!.. Olivia?! Chelsea?!. Leslie?! . .
How is Days of our lives able to rotate constantly the return of faves under hw Carlivati but y n r with Mal Young instead keeps losing them…hmmmm..doesnt take an overpaid inflated incompetent cbs daytime head to figure that out. .
Its a toxic work enviroment!!!!…
No one with the exception of the very few vip longterm vets want to work there..
Plsssss bring on a new head team .
No one cares for a useless jabot exec character..be creative and find a way to bring back faves!

How about Mishael Morgan? It should be obvious by now they made a big mistake letting Hillary die. She could be an identical twin for Devon to fall for. I also liked Molly Burnett when she filled in for Kirsten Storms on GH. Or…We could forget about her altogether and give more time to Jill, Traci, Gloria, Paul, Lauren, and Michael. Then we can dump Nate, Shauna, Rey, and bring Kevin & Delia back.

We all understand the game plan… out w/ the tried & true…..creating NEW characters means fresh income $$$ for writers. What s waste…getting a bevy of
unknowns and mainly uninteresting actors playing parts we could care LESS
about instead of putting thre GREAT school of actors Mal has at his disposal
back to work.

I call it the “GH Model.” Sadly, it would seem that other soaps are now following its example…

So basically, Y&R wants Ashley Abbott onscreen but doesn’t want to pay Eileen Davidson what she is worth… so they’ll just replace her with someone younger and cheaper. I can think of a total of zero actresses I would like to see in this role. The whole situation is a hard pass for me.

Maybe Doug Davidson in drag since they don’t know what a gem they’ve tossed aside. Meh.

Why bring on a new character when the writers can’t write for who is already there. If they want an all new cast and story history, start a new show.

I am not against new characters, every character in the show had a beginning at some point. My beef is the quality of the story telling. Another character in a badly written story, both in plot and dialogue isn’t going to make a difference. Right now every soap is basically rearranging the deck chairs on the Titanic– the ship is sinking– fix the problem– hire writers that know how to write– and in this case I will echo Suoo’s sentiment — hire some young writers give them a chance instead of relying on the same writers who basically depend on the formulas and ideas they had decades ago ie. Brad Bell. I swear he dusts off his Ridge/Taylor/Brooke scripts and changes the names to Liam, Steffy and Hope. There is a way to honor history, use characters fans want to see and insert new blood in the mix- it was done in the past, so it can be done– but there doesn’t seem to be any motivation to try, either on producers end, writers end or network– so I wish her well whoever they hire, but when I think of the number of “new characters” this show has introduced in the last 10 years, I can’t think of one that is still on the show– that doesn’t bode well for all these new characters coming on the show now–enjoy your moment in the sun because it will not last long.

She will be hooked up with Devon, eventually ..
Soaps, still being in 60’s, believe everyone need to in a relationship with someone..
God forbid any one could be happy single as the high percent of the 21st century peoples are.

So yeah, she is already being written to be with Devon..

Eric Braeden On Y&R’s Diminishing Vets: “My Plea To Management: We Have Lost Some All-Time Fan Favorites!”

Outspoken, direct, and wanting what’s best for the show in which he has become a part of its iconic brand, Y&R’s Eric Braeden (Victor) took to social media to let his feelings be known on the CBS soap operas decision to take Doug Davidson (Paul) off-contract, and not utilizing three-time Daytime Emmy winner, Christian LeBlanc (Michael), letting go of Greg Rikaart (Kevin), and the fact that Eileen Davidson (Ashley) has made the decision to exit the series.

Over the last few weeks, fans have been outraged at the news of the series longest cast member, Doug Davidson being taken off-contract and bumped to recurring with this change happening back in January of this year.

Eric Braeden tweeted: “I normally don’t express my opinions reg the casting on Y&R! That’s the privilege of those who produce the show! However, this is a time when I have to make an exception! I’m still on vacation, hence my comment comes a little late: to let DOUGIE DAVIDSON GO is an egregious mistake.  My plea to management: we have lost some all time fan favorites! D DAVIDSON has been with the show for, i think, 39 years, and people have loved him! Same for CHRISTIAN Le BLANC, GREG RIKART, Eileen DAVIDSON (who left on her own volition)!”

As for Braeden’s statement it has gotten wide pick-up via the daytime media and tremendous support on social media from fans of The Young and the Restless.

So, what do you think about what Eric had to say about the frustration of losing, or the show not using ,some beloved and veteran cast members? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
