Wishing her the best of luck to Reylynn Caster in the role of Faith Newman. Just wish production and the writing were better. And best wishes to Alyvia Alyn Lind, who is moving onto bigger things!

Can’t stand the Abbey storyline. Totally not realistic.

I agree so tired of Abbey looking like she’s lost and confused. Don’t like chance all over the place. Make Abbey look more interesting she is very boring. A spoiled brat.

Very sad Ms Lind is leaving. She’s an excellent young actress who always delivers. Best of luck to both ladies in their new roles. Soaps are all about a recast.

I guess they’re ramping up for yet MORE major storylines involving Faith. Oh boy! Faith and Moses…I can’t wait! It’ll save me money on sleep aids.

Hi Soaphound
You are right, and seeing Faith today with Moses made me realize how much she’ll be missed, but I certainly didn’t think she was right for this young man, too young.
Another thing, don’t know if you caught it, but Phyllis mentioning the fact that Cassie and Faith were the same age..Unless my memory is really failing, I think Cassie was only 11 when she had her fatal accident, driving when Daniel was drunk.

I don’t like it at all. Lind is great and I don’t want her to go. She is the only Faith to me

Realistically, they didn’t have a choice if they wanted the storyline to continue… Lind is a series regular on another series, so she’s realistically unavailable.

Realistically, we don’t have to like it!

I love her as an actress. I think she’ll be great on Y&R. Can’t wait!

I sure hate to see Alyvia leave, she’s an amazing actress, best of luck in her new adventures. It’ll be hard to get used to a new Faith, & congratulations Reylynn on her new part

Oh man, I’m so sad to see Alyvia leave the show. She’s so good and she’s been knocking this teen age story out of the water and has really been the only bright spot in an otherwise dead show.

Oh no!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! She will always be my little Faith.

Considering Josh Griffith cant even write for a cereal box i doubt whatever he has planned for Faith deserved a recast. Rest the character and wait if she returns and if not then recast. Chances are nothing of any remote intrest will happen anyways. The only reason this latest Faith storyline was any good was because Aylvia shines and is soo talented. Josh is really pleased with himself if he thinks hes on a roll recycling the Cassie plot..

Alyvia Alyn Lind, what a sweetie! She has such a bright future. I didnt think she would last too long at Y&R once I saw her in the Dolly Parton movie. She was great and has grown into a huge talent. She deserves this climb.

Good luck to the new girl. She is cute. If she can act, Y&R will be okay!

With an 18 year old playing a 14 year old, they can definitely do a lot more controversial things with the new girl.

So, what do you think about Trevor’s departure from Y&R? Comment below.
