As Y&R viewers know and have witnessed, there was a new face for the character of Chance Chancellor during his wedding to Abby Newman (Melissa Ordway). As previously reported, Donny Boaz (Chance) has contracted Covid-19 and had to quarantine at home when the filming dates for his on-screen alter-ego’s wedding came about.

Enter the real-life husband of Melissa Ordway’s and a former soap star himself, Justin Gaston (Ex-Ben, DAYS), to take over the role during the pivotal moment for the Genoa City lovebirds.

The nuptials were actually made all the more sweeter as detailed in Michael Fairman’s latest interview for the Michael Fairman Channel with Jess Walton (Jill) and Tricia Cast (Nina) who spoke of being present at the wedding and the spark between the duo. (Watch below).

 

Now, Boaz is back at Y&R taping new episodes, and he took to his Instagram this week to bestow some thanks and praise to both Melissa and Justin during his absence.

Donny expressed: “I want to send out a special thank you to these two #lovebirds @mel_ordway You’re Amazing, Everyday. It’s my absolute pleasure to work with you. She called me almost everyday while I was out to check on me and I want her to know that meant a lot. @jmichaelgaston I want to thank you for stepping in to Chance Chancellors shoes at the last minute and for being a badass! The fans have no idea that you had a 3-4 day heads up and had to crank out 110+ pages a week to catch up for the time I was out. Sad I couldn’t be there for such a momentous occasion for Chance and Abby’s wedding, but simultaneously in awe of what an amazing and unique experience it was to get to marry your own spouse on daytime TV. That’s pretty cool. I’m thankful for your two. #respect #thankful #hotcouple

The actor also revealed he will be back on-screen on Friday’s December 18th episode of The Young and the Restless, sharing in a new post on IG  “Just a little screen shot from #yr This is how happy I feel to be back at work. For all of the fans, I will be back in Chance Chancellors shoes and on your tv on 12/18/2020. Spoiler Alert: I think Melissa Ordway and I had one of the best, most magical scenes we’ve ever shot today. She is sooo good and sooo talented. I feel lucky to get front row seats to watch her work.”

So, what did you think of Justin as Chance?  Are you glad Donny is back?  Let us know via the comment section.

I liked the replacement for the wedding. But as the story moved on, there is a quality that Donny Boaz brings to Chance that Justin Gaston simply cannot replicate. Gaston’s version was softer and even kinder. Boaz has a strength and virility that resonates well with his gentle side, something that is lacking in Gaston’s interpretation. But as a stand in, especially the wedding scenes, Gaston was outstanding. He helped move the story along perfectly, bringing emotional depth that was unforgettable. Great job!

It will be good to have Donny back, he belongs with Abby on the soap.
