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. .

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… Read more »

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..
