Y&R Looking To Cast Stitch's Wife? Who Should Be Considered For The Role?

Looks like Sean Carrigan’s role of Ben aka Stitch is growing and growing on The Young and the Restless!

And now that it appears that Stitch and Victoria (Amelia Heinle) are clearly headed towards a major romance with each other, look for Stitch’s wife to enter the fray!

According to a tweet from Nelson Branco this morning, “Y&R is doing a big search for Stitch’s wife.  Shoots 3 episodes starting next  month. The show wants a name.  Deeply hurt by Stitch, she is vulnerable, but very tough and a good mom.”

With that being said, and putting your casting director hat on, who would you like to see play the role, since the CBS soap is looking for a name actress to play her?  Anyone from daytime or primetime come to mind that you would like to see on the number one soap?

And let us know, are you digging Stitch and Victoria together?  Comment below!

She seems a little old for the part. I like her where she is playing Quinn.

Yes! This woman needs to be back on daytime, but not for a three-episode cameo. And I am not loving Stitch and Victoria. I do not like the vibe of the new Billy with Victoria hence I sense a complete parting for a while, but the Billy/Victoria relationship is so good and integral to the legacy of Y&R. I am weary of the Newmans and would like to see the entire family have an epiphany with lasting repercussions of growth. Only Nick really holds my interest as a Newman. It may take the (real) death of Victor Newman to make… Read more »

Yes, how they especially MAB’s writing did damage to the character which Sharon wasn’t this type character. The one thing these writers have done correctly is capturing the chemistry of Shick…they are the most romantic could on canvas at this moment.

I so agree about Kelley being back in daytime because she’s an awesome actress!

Do you think Sarah Gilbert would work? She works in the same studio. Y&R is always doing cross promotions. Sarah is a good actress. She had a dramatic stint on ER. Part of the description is for the actress to be tough.

Alicia Minshew. Seeing her interact with Amelia Heinle, Melissa Clare Egan, Cady McClain and Elizabeth Hendrickson would be awesome!

Only problem is, Liz Hendrickson is leaving the show and should be gone by the time Stitch’s wife makes her on-screen debut.

Tamara or Sarah (both ex Carlys from GH) or Melissa Archer for starters. Brianna Brown just filmed a pilot but if it doesn’t get picked up I’d love to see her in role. She was Lisa Niles on GH.

I am loving Victoria and Stitch! I knew they would eventually bring on Jenna and Max, I was just hoping it would be later. I guess if she is this soon then that means Victoria and Stitch are getting serious and his secret is about to be revealed. How exciting! I can’t wait.

Now clue on the casting though. So many talented actresses out there to choose from. I can see Kelly Sullivan though!

What big name actress they think they will get for only three episodes? How much are they paying to attract a name actress for three episodes?

andrew hass
Guest

Right now it’s just for 3 episodes but that could be extended longer depending on how things go.Plus if Stitch’s son shows up down the line then his mother could return too.So for now it could be for a 3 episode stint to set the stage for a longer stint later.

The minute I read “tough & a good Mom,” the first actress that popped into my head was Kelly Monaco. Yeah, I know, she’s at GH, but in a “dream casting world” I can totally see her as Stitch’s wife…and Stitch’s BFF, Dylan McAvoy, consoling her. 🙂 I would LOVE to see that “Stelly Magic” in action again!

First that came to mind was Sarah Brown, before I read all these other posts who seemed to think the same thing! She does a great balance of vulnerable, tough and devoted mom.

BUT then someone mentioned Alicia Minshew, and I could see that too.

Those are my two top votes!

I think it has to be someone a little less glamorous, someone who can play a wholesome type. A woman who would have signed on to be an Army wife. Perhaps a Rebecca Herbst type – someone who does’t play “sex pot” or “ball buster” but can be both when the need arises.

I know very few of these actresses – bar Budig, Minshew and the Y&R actresses but I looked at all their pictures and the only one I could ‘picture’ as Stitch’s wife is Tamara Braun. She has just the right amt of fresh faced/girl next door but could be trouble all rolled into one. Some of them were just too old to play the part or two heavily made up. I do not see him very attracted to that look.

This would be the right “Carly”.

As long as they don’t try to cross promote shows by casting one of the ladies from the View– I’ll be okay with whoever– it is only for three episodes.

Alicia Minshew or Stephanie Gatschet.

I think several actresses would be good in the role, though if they hire Sarah Brown, Tamara Braun, Alicia Minshew or Melissa Archer (which seem to be the most popular names) I would like them to stay with the show on contract because they are fantastic actresses, too good for only a 3 day part.

Scott (ATWT Fan)

If they’re looking for names, it’s most likely the show is possibly looking for a recurring status, or even contract.

soap fans are known to bitch and whine when a known soap actor from one of the soaps goes to another soap..
It happens most every time..ie( some still can’t get over 3 from OLTL going to GH .. never heard so many cry babies over that one.. some are still sniveling ..

Why do the new created characters need to be from a different soap?
Why not just hire a new unknown.. (that is my preference.

Wow. For once we agree.

Give an unknown the role.

Just no one from GH please.

Why not Sarah Gilbert? CBS/Y&R have had several cross promotions between there shows. Y&R is part of CBS. Several Y&R actors have been guests on The Talk. Sarah Gilbert is a host of The Talk. Sarah Gilbert is an actress. The role is only a few episodes. It seems like the logical thing to do, considering all the CBS/Y&R crosses. Maybe they don’t went Sarah Gilbert at Y&R because she is a lesbian. What do you think?

PatF
Guest
PatF

Sarah is too valuable on the Talk, and will be appearing in a new CBS sitcom.

CBS obviously has NO issues with us gays. They put Sarah’s show on to replace one of their soaps, and had the character of Phillip come out on YR with an actual gay actor in the role. The character of Mac was played by a lesbian, and ATWT had a gay couple on before Days. But I don’t think you are very familiar with CBS Daytime.

I’m sure they’ll find someone to fill this temp role.

If I was betting I would choose someone from Jill Farren Phelps’ time at GH, since she does seem to have favorite performers. Kelly M Hensley would be a great addition to Y&R, though.

There have been a couple of good ones already mentioned (Lesli Kay is an excellent choice). A few other options that I might consider: Noelle Beck Beth Chamberlain Sydney Penny Yvonne Perry Rebecca Staab Notice that all of my choices have experience on CBS soaps. I’m a firm believer that, when possible, Y&R (or B&B, for that matter) should make a deliberate effort to hire experienced soap actors who worked on serials for the same network. In the hey day, a lot of viewers watched all 4 serials on CBS and didn’t jump around networks. I suspect a good number… Read more »

Maybe you should try DAYS. Once again, Eileen Davidson (Ashley Abbott) is returning as Kristen DiMera on the NBC soap! You just may fall in love with Kristen as she struggles between good and evil. Kristen also has an ugly look-alike (Susan). Susan also has a sister (Sister Mary) and brother (Tommy). They all are played by the incredible Eileen Davidson. If she does not win the emmy this year, then no one should!!! Special note: The last visit by Eileen lasted one year. Kristen was the only character she played that time around. However, she as Kristen, did disguise… Read more »

I would rather see experienced soap actors take the place of the actors that have chosen to leave their roles. I love seeing familiar faces. It is great for people who have lost their favorite soap. There are some very talented actors out there because of the soap cancellations.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Sonny Remembers Carly Just as She Is Marrying Jason

After nine months of being “Mike”, Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) had a major breakthrough as his memory is all coming back to him now (as the Celine Dion song says), and in the process the Tan-O has burned to the ground, signaling the the probable end to the Nixon Falls arc of the story.

As the story picked-up on Thursday, Nina’s (Cynthia Watros) plot to keep Sonny for herself and away from Carly majorly backfired on her.  Not only does Phyllis (Joyce Guy) now know that Nina lied about “Mike’s” identify the entire time, but Peter August (Wes Ramsey) is running wild and free heading back to Port Charles to claim his baby and Maxie (Kirsten Storms), after setting fire to the building.

Courtesy/ABC

Since “Mike” ran in to save Nina and got hit by a beam in the process, he is alone in the burning Tan-O enveloped by flames, but that triggers the beginning of his memory coming back.

Meanwhile, back in Port Charles, Jason (Steve Burton) and Carly (Laura Wright) are at their wedding, with the five family mob bosses present with a plot of their own and everyone wondering if Jarly will say “I do'”.    The two light a candle together for those loved ones no longer with them … ah, Sonny!

Back the burning Tan-O, Sonny is visited by the vision of the real Mike (Max Gail) who tells him it’s time for him to go home now.  A conflicted Sonny tells Mike he is very happy in Nixon Falls with Nina, but Mike tells him he needs to know his past in order to move forward.  When Sonny has flashes of his violent past it frightens him, and he says whatever family he has is better off without him in their lives.

Jax (Ingo Rademacher) tries to text Maxie while still in Nixon Falls with Nina to watch out for Peter, but she is attending and managing Carly and Sonny’s wedding, so she doesn’t pick up the phone!

Inside the Tan-O, Sonny sees a vision of woman, who when she turns and faces him is Carly. While Sonny is lying on the floor and is engulfed in flames and trapped, Mike tells Sonny he can die as “Mike” or live on as the man he truly is, Sonny.  It is then Sonny calls out “Carly!”

So, what did you think of the episode? Do you think Carly and Jason will get married? Will Sonny tells Nina he remembers? What will Nina’s next move be? Are you glad Sonny seems to have his memory back? The episode featured another strong performance by Maurice Benard.  Share your thoughts below.

REPORT: Clayton Echard Cast as the Next ‘Bachelor’ for its Upcoming 26th Season

After all the turmoil of the previous ‘Bachelor’ seasons, it looks like the ABC reality-dating competition may have found their man.

Multiple sources are reporting that Clayton Echard, who no one has seen yet, and who appears as a suitor in Michelle Young’s season of The Bachelorette, has actually been given the nod to be the lead in the new upcoming 26th season of the series.

On Wednesday, leaked photos appeared online of Echard with a camera crew by E! News  questioning if he would be the new “Bachelor.”

Variety is saying that their sources are saying Echard is ABC’s choice for the lead, but that no official announcement will be forthcoming especially since Young’s season of The Bachelorette which bows October 19th had not even begun.

What we can glean on Echard from his Instagram page is that he is 28-years-old and from Missouri and played college football at U of Missouri and was signed as pro to play with tight end with the Seattle Seahawks, but he is now an orthopaedic saleman.

So, will you be watching the new season of The Bachelor when it comes around most likely in January 2022? Comment below.
