Viewers of The Young and the Restless can breathe a sigh of relief after a tweet from now Lead Actress nominee, and two-time Daytime Emmy winner, Jess Walton (Jill).

After speculation arose following a tweet from her on-screen love husband. Tristan Rogers (Colin) where he intimated that there were no episodes planned in the future for Colin and Jill by tweeting: “Glad you all liked the end of that storyline. There are no plans for this couple to reappear so they’ll be away for awhile,” Walton offered up a different explanation.

Jess tweeted: “Thx for your tweets. Jill isn’t going anywhere! Just taking some time off & awaiting the birth of my 3rd grandchild. Love  & all of you!”   Walton has previously tweeted: “Be watching for Jill and Colin in June, bucket list finished?!?”

As many know, Walton lives in Oregon where she does take periodic time off from Genoa City to be with her family and lives a private life out of the rat race of Hollywood.

So, glad to hear Jess says she and Jill are sticking around? Comment below!

Jill is the next Katherine and Y&R would suffer serious damage to the show had they let her go!!!

Happy news for Ms. Walton! Glad to hear Jill remains integral to Y&R… as it should be! There is much story to be told for this complicated fun-to-watch character. We will wait for Jill and Colin to return and we will wonder what drama awaits them> Hmmmm…

When I saw Tristan Rogers’ tweet, I nearly dropped one in my pants, because I could not fathom how they would write Jill out for an indefinite hiatus, especially given the importance of her heart attack storyline. So, it warmed my heart to know that Jess Walton is taking some time-off to go back to Oregon to be with her children and await the birth of her third grandchild, which is why she opted to go to recurring status. June is a little bit more than two-months away, so I await her return. My only wish? Tristan and the character… Read more »

Tristan Rogers is a force of nature and I really love him. But his whole story since day one has been predicated upon his being a con artist and his being in love with Jill. I had always hoped that Colin would someone get involved with Newman Enterprises or Jabot Cosmetics. I would have liked to have seen him as some top level executive or better yet, a corporate raider. What I wanted for this character was to see him play with the big boys, Jack and Victor.. I was hoping the new EP and writing team would recognize what… Read more »

I’ll look forward to Jill’s return!
And I agree, wish Colin would not come back.
Jill forgiving such a huge thing was a turn-off, and
Colin being rewarded afterward with a world vacation??
I get that she loves him. I get that she finds him fun.
But there are guys who are fun and interesting, but who
won’t drain her bank accounts or send her to the hospital!

Glad that Jill and Jess, Tristan and Colin are sticking around. However, I do think it’s poor that they had Jill, a recent heart attack victim, go off on a cruise. Jill needs to be doing cardiac rehab.

I don’t know about this. Walton is fine but this is the second time in less than 4 months that Jill has simply vanished from the show because Walton has something going on in her personal life. I commend Walton for being very family oriented and wanting to be around for the birth of a grandchild. However, Jill is really suffering from the “here today, gone tomorrow for months” approach that Walton is taking to playing her. Jill left for a cruise in December and, plotwise, it was jarring as the character was in the middle of trying to get… Read more »

NO RECAST FOR THIS ROLE……JESS WALTON IS JILL!!!!

Walton is Jill when she is there. The issue is that Walton is NOT there enough.

Rather than saying “Jill isn’t going anywhere,” the headline for this item should be “Jill is hardly here anymore.”

If Walton wants to retire, that is fine. She should just do so and let Jill and the viewers move on from her. The current situation is unacceptable.

Hey Barbara from Atlanta, I have to say I’ve been feeling the same way. I fully agree, and I commend you for writing what you feel and it in no way insults the show, the character, the fans or Mrs. Walton herself. I agree with you fully and many times the writers were blamed for Jill not being on the canvas enough when she herself made plans to be off the canvas for an extended period of time. I will say though I love Brenda Dickson but Jess brought more dimensions to the character and showed us her reason for… Read more »

Happy to read that Jill is not being written off. As others reference, she is the only original character from the 72-3 opening of the program. I had hoped she would become all she despised in Katherine from 40 years ago, but don’t see that happening now that she’s had the heart attack and the life-altering changes. So, writers, let’s see how Jill grows in the most mature of her years to come! And, after playing the character for so long, I think Ms. Walton has earned the say in when she wants to tape shows and when she wants… Read more »

Jess is lucky to pick and choose. I know over at GH Kimberly McCullough does this sort of thing and gets ridiculed! Any of us in any of our careers would love to do this! BUT, most of us are not entertainers. Jess is so important to Y&R and fans want her full time to be the “Katherine” of the show now. IF she cannot commit after her grandchild is born, I would search for a replacement. Same with Robin on GH, if Kim stays away, thats her choice but I would cast Chloe from Y&R who is leaving to… Read more »

I really wish Jill would return without Colin. He needs to stop stinking up my screen with his special brand of smarminess. He makes me so ill constantly blackmailing Devon, even plotting to destroy his own son’s marriage, or stealing Jill’s money. Btw, her leaving again means that they need to explain how she left when Colin spent all of her money and all she has is that stupid ring from some ex that died over 30 years ago? How is she affording this long a%% trip; what funds is she using? I”ve been wondering that for weeks and I… Read more »

Thank GOD! I was so upset to read the tweet from “Colin”. The character of Jill is absolutely integral to the show and NO ONE can possibly replace the fantastic Jess Walton in the role. NO ONE.

I’m thrilled for her new family addition and can’t wait until she storms back into GC! She is absolutely hilarious/brilliant in the role. That Emmy is hers to win!

Ashton Arbab Says Farewell To General Hospital: “It Was Such An Honor To Have Worked Alongside Of Such Talented Actors”

Yesterday, viewers of General Hospitals witnessed that as a result of the bomb explosion at the Floating Rib; it meant the end of the road for a couple of characters.  One of those was Dev, and thus ends Ashton Arbab’s over two-year run in the role.

In key scenes, Dev dies in the ambulance ride to the hospital and thanks Sonny (Maurice Benard) for making him a part of the family and tells Sonny to tell Josslyn (Eden McCoy) that he is sorry.  Will Sonny recall what Dev said and pass that on to Joss? Will anyone figure out Dev’s duplicity in keeping Joss and Cameron (William Burton) apart? Stay tuned.

Meanwhile, Ashton took to Twitter on Tuesday and shared these words of praise and ‘thank you’ for his time on the ABC daytime drama series.

 

Arbab expressed: “I am forever grateful to Producer Frank Valentini and Mark Teschner (casting director, GH) for this amazing opportunity. It was such an honor to have worked along side of such talented actors and I’m beyond blessed for your friendship. Most of all thank you General Hospital fans.”

So, what did you think of Dev being killed-off? Will you miss Ashton? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
