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.

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..

They shared: “Our mother was a loving and supportive wife, mother and grandmother.  Gracious and kind, she enriched the lives of all who knew her. We will miss her tremendously.”

Born in Chicago, Illinois on June 9, 1928, Bell was co-creator, along with her late husband William J. Bell, of two of daytime television’s most successful dramas: The Young and the Restless (Y&R), and The Bold and the Beautiful (B&B).

Bell’s career as a broadcast journalist began in Chicago, where she hosted and produced her own show, The Lee Phillip Show, for CBS TV for over 30 years. A pioneer in the evolution of the afternoon talk show format, Bell was a trailblazer in the exploration of timely social issues and concerns.  Additionally she produced and narrated numerous award-winning specials and documentaries covering social concerns such as foster children, the subject of rape, children and divorce, and babies born to women in prison, to name a few.. Bell interviewed heads of state such as Presidents Gerald Ford and Ronald Regan; film actors Judy Garland, Clint Eastwood and Jerry Lewis; musicians such as The Rolling Stones and The Beatles; television and stage stars such as Lucille Ball, Jack Benny and Oprah Winfrey; and many other politicians, authors, journalists, fashion designers and rock stars.

She was awarded 16 regional (Chicago) Emmy awards and numerous Golden Mike awards. Bell is also the recipient of the Alfred I. Dupont/Columbia University Award for the special The Rape of Paulette, the first program in Chicago to explore the issue.  In 1977, she was the first woman to receive the coveted Governors Award from the Chicago chapter of the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences.  In 1980, she was named “Person of the Year” by the Broadcast Advertising Club of Chicago and the “Outstanding Woman in Communications” by the Chicago YMCA.  She also received the Salvation Army’s William Booth Award for her distinguished career in communications and social service. Bell won the Daytime Emmy Award for Outstanding Drama Series as co-creator of The Young and the Restless in 1975 and was recipient of the Daytime Emmys’ Lifetime Achievement Award in 2007.

Ex-Nashville and GL’s Hayden Panettiere’s Boyfriend Arrested After Allegedly Punching Her

More upsetting news involving former ABC and CMT’s Nashville star (Ex-Juliette Barnes), Hayden Panettiere.  According to various reports, the actress was punched by her boyfriend Brian Hickerson with a closed fist in an incident that occurred in Wyoming, over the Valentine’s Day weekend.  He was arrested around 2:30am on February 14th.

According to TMZ: the police report said that Hayden revealed that she and Brian were in their bedroom when he started throwing her around and punched her.  The Teton County Sheriff’s Office was notified of a disturbance at a private residence. That caller said an intoxicated male was locked out of the home because he punched his girlfriend in the face.

Pantierre’s face was red and swollen, and she also had a scrape and swelling on her left hand; which she believed came from Hickerson’s watch during the altercation.  Deputies then decided to book Hickerson for domestic battery. He was also hit with a second charge of interfering with a police officer for allegedly refusing to identify himself.

Things looked like they had taken a turn for the better before the incident, noting that the couple moved past another altercation previously from 2019.  That case was dismissed, although he has left red marks on Pantierre’s body, because they could not find a “material witness”.

NATAS Launches New Streaming Service App As Destination To Watch Daytime Emmys and More

Looks like the place to view the Daytime Emmy ceremonies continue to change, and now evolve with the times, with news on Wednesday from the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences (NATAS).

While the annual kudofest used to be on major network television, the last several years have found the Emmys not having a broadcast outlet and having to be creative.  As fans of the daytime community know, most recently that show has been able to seen on You Tube, Twitter, and the like, via social media.

Now comes word that NATAS has launched its very own streaming service app to be the epicenter for all of its award shows.  According to Variety: “The service, which doesn’t yet have a name (but will likely include “Emmy” in its title), will be unveiled in time for the Technology & Engineering Emmy Awards in April, and the Sports Emmys in May, both of which are administered by NATAS.”

With the introduction of the new OTT app, NATAS president and CEO Adam Sharp shared that viewers will know where to go instead of  how it went down in the recent previous years.“We were making it available on PCs and mobile in a clunky way. But with the Emmys OTT app available on any platform, if you want to watch on your phone you can watch on your phone. You want to watch on your TV, you can watch on your TV. And really be accessible to the audience. Wherever they are consuming the shows, we’re on it.”

NATAS is reportedly building out the OTT app  be available on web, mobile, and major settop platforms including Apple TV, Roku, Chromecast, Fire stick and Android TV.   The new app is said to be free, at least for now, and without commercials.

One more important note is that Sharp says to be on the lookout for more content to enhance the Emmy and award show experiences delivered from NATAS that will include: past awards ceremonies, as well as clips from the NATAS archives,.

In addition to that, looks like there will be some original short form content as well; including its first one “Behind the Emmy” that will combine backstage interviews, onstage acceptance speeches and some of the actual submitted content to really tell the story of the excellent creativity and production work that goes into winning that most coveted honor of excellence in television,” Sharp said.

So, what do you think about the upcoming launch of NATAS’ new app and the place to watch this year’s Daytime Emmys? Comment below.
