Y&R's Lachlan Buchanan and GH's Hayley Erin Make Their Debuts: What Were Your First Impressions?

Courtesy/CBS

Courtesy/CBS

Last week, saw the debuts of two recasts on two of your favorite daytime drama series.  First, Lachlan Buchanan came on to the scene as the recast Kyle Abbott on The Young and the Restless. The role of Jack (Peter Bergman) and Diane’s son was last played by Hartley Sawyer.

Lachlan’s Kyle is already coming in to the mix in Genoa City in a whole heap of hot water as one of the prime suspects in the “murder” of Austin (Matthew Atkinson), especially if you check out the latest CBS Daytime promo for Y&R this week!

Over in Port Charles, Hayley Erin, who once played Abby Newman on Y&R, has taken over the role of Kiki Jerome from longtime soap opera fan favorite, Kristen Alderson.

Courtesy/CBS

As viewers know, it was Alderson’s decision to leave to purse other career opportunities and personal interests.  Erin made her General Hospital debut in scenes with Bryan Craig (Morgan) and William deVry (Julian), centering on conversations on having a wake for her believed-to-be-dead mother, Ava (Maura West).

So, while viewers are just seeing these two recast actors getting their feet wet in their new roles, what were your first impressions?  Do you think you will enjoy seeing Lachlan and Hayley on Y&R and GH?  Watch this week’s promo for Y&R which features Lachlan after the jump.  Next, share your thoughts on the recasts in the comment section below.

Y&Rs L.B. was o.k. and gets an A…GHs H.E. gets a D but ill give her a chance to improve…K.A. was so good in her final scene with R.H. she gets an A+ for her final moment and that hard to beat…jmo!!!

He somewhat reminds me of David Tom…

I love gh

I agree that H.E. gets a D, and I also agree that she needs time. I remember that I did not like new Morgan at first, but BC is excellent in the role. I can’t imagine anyone playing his role except him. I also didn’t warm up to the new Lulu, but I love her character now. I thought Nina was a bit much her first few weeks, but I never hit fast-forward when she’s on. I’ve learned to wait – the casting director knows what she/he’s doing.

it’s amazing to know that this still happens …

if FV/RC wanted an award… for best turnaround’s

Michelle Stafford, Roger Howarth, and Emme Rylan… to name a few…

Justin Hartley : as nuAdam
Gina Tognoni: as nuPhyllis

As a long term soap fan I understand and accept the recast especially with a key/legacy character. But the new Kyle has me scratching his head. Kyle has SORASd before my eyes and I”m ok with that too. But this guy is so much younger looking than the last Kyle …. I hope has good material to play and is a good actor. I can forgive the rest.

I think they hit a homer run with this kid. If you forget about the last actor playing Kyle, he is about the right age. He came in and seamlessly ran with the baton. He’s got good looks, charisma and talent. I see a young Kevin Bacon merging with a young Billy Miller (don’t kill me Billy Miller fans). I think they found themselves a winner. Moreover, he really looks and acts like the son of ole smiling Jack. I haven’t caught GH in a few weeks so I can’t comment on the Kiki recast. I loved KA so much… Read more »

I had mentioned nuKyle looking very much like Jack on the previous site. I noticed that immediately ,(personally, I do not like that look….but, hey, that’s just how see him). Let’s just hope his outlook on life is not to ‘screw’ (pardon the word, but it is fitting in many ways…LOL) people over as his sire is wont to do. As far as I’m concerned, Jack’s reputation is besmirched with good reason…..he is blacklisted in my book. I dislike the character as much as Victor. Nonetheless, I will give this nuKyle the benefit of the doubt. I have said this… Read more »

I hear you, k/kay!!!! TL’s “Jack Abbott” was one of the first soap bad boys I watched, and he inhabited the role with a lethal combination of finesse and charm! To me, he shall always be the one and only Jack! ( Although I also thought he did a credible job as “Mason Capwell” in Lane Davies absence….and those were HUGE shoes to fill!!!!)

@k/kay….That is so cool!!!!! I have read a bit about Mr. Lester, and was surprised to discover that he was quite the talented composer and that music was his real love and forte’. Such a shame that facet wasn’t incorporated into his soap roles on Y&R or SB. I never caught his performance as Royce, but have no doubt that it was as superb as his other ones. No disrespect intended to PB, but as far as I’m concerned, TL was and remains the only true Jack Abbott….due to his departure and then that awful Ashley recast, I quit watching… Read more »

Kay, that is so wonderful that you knew Terry Lester. He died way too young. I loved his Jack Abbott–he looked so handsome in those three piece suits. I recall he was so sweet to his secretary who had a physical disability, and who had a a huge crush on her boss. I loved the Abbots back in those days. That was when soaps had core families and the stories revolved around them. You had the Abbots, The Newmans and The Chancellors. Representing the working class was the Williams family. Remember that Holy roller Mary? What a great character she… Read more »

Kyle, he wasn’t seen for a year. While I’m not saying Kyle is not important, he hasn’t had a major storyline in a year. As for Kiki, Kristen Alderson took the role after her character Starr was illegal on GH. Its actually going to take more time to accept this girl as Kiki, cause even as Kiki, I only saw Starr with new hair. Maybe I can see her a a character who is Starr pretending to be another person.

I like nuKyle- he is more in keeping with the look and age of the character than the last guy. He is fitting in nicely with the “younger” set and I can see the beginnings of a new Abbott-Newman feud between him and Noah. I think he is working and it helped that they had his character off screen for a while. It is always more jarring to see one actor in the role one day and new person the next– it makes accepting the recast a bit more difficult. This is part of the problem I am having with… Read more »

Well I don’t know where you get your information, but the character Kyle was born in 2001, which means he should only be fourteen, but they SORAS him to be in 2012, 22, which means he should be 25ish, Abby was born in 2000 so she should be fifteen, but they SORAS her in 2010 to be 21, so she would be 26 — so when I said the younger set I meant any of the characters in their twenties, which was my POINT– this actor is in keeping with the character TRUE AGE and the not the guy who… Read more »

@mary yes you are right on all fronts concerning the characters ages this is why as much as I love Camryn Grimes/ Mariah it does not work since Summer was a product of wimpy Nick not being able to face reality of losing a child then having Summer with Phyliss Not knowing for sure for eighteen years if it was actually his wicked spawn. But wait a minute it is all Sharon’s fault! The actress who plays Abby needs to stay off The Price Is Right as my sister says if she wants to be taken seriously! The previous Kyle… Read more »

And this is why SORAS should be illegal in American daytime soaps. Just look at Eastenders, they’ve let a pair of twins age naturally with only frequent recasts to worry about. Once they hit their 20’s, they finally were given major storylines that ended with one of the twins murdered and a year later, the reveal of the murderer pushed the other twin to leave town in an emotional goodbye to a place he called home for all his life. This also tells a lot about audiences becoming increasingly impatient waiting for newly born kids in soaps to grow up… Read more »

Hi Mary SF..
If you google Kyle’s profile he was born 2009 ..
Victors sperm story was also in 2009/10 ..
And now he has been aged to 34 according to a couple of sites/accounts..
the way they mess with ages it is hard to know but google searches do inform, but ?
I plan on tweeting them to find out for sure..

Hi Nikki ..
this is crazier lol-
Kyle, Diane Jenkins and Jack Abbott son got to know his father as a 10 year-old when he and Diane moved back to Genoa City from Canada in 2010/11..
(so he should have been 10 then but was aged to his 25ish… and through college and he was an Executive at Newman Enterprises and Executive at Jabot (wow lol
Now, in 2015 he would be 30….
as I read — he has returned a 34 yr old..

go figure it .. It is too crazy!

Nikki

Actually Summer was born on December 18th–2006 which makes her 9 years old. Kyle Abbott was born on January 8th. 2001 which makes him 14. Mariah/Cassie was born January 8-1991 which makes her 24. Abby was born on November 13-2000 which makes her 15. No news on Kevin Fisher but his real birthday is Feb. 26/1977 so in real life he’s 38. So if we go by the Newman Abbott family tree Kevin & Mariah are hanging around with teenagers and Summer should be at a play-date or in school.

Are you sure Kyle is 35,Su? I’m not sure about that. If he is supposed to be 35, then TPTB made a big boo-boo. Lachlan is actually 24. He ‘fits in’ with the rest of the young crowd. Abby (yuck) is a lanky, no-taste-in-clothes overgrown fake teenager. Same goes for Kevin…except that I love Kevin. I hope Austin is gone for good. His face looks like a question mark. I hate it when “they” mess with the characters’s age like this…..infuriating. Soon, the children will be older than the parents….Take nuPhyllis and Daniel, for instance. They are only five years… Read more »

Su, have you notice Kyle’s shifty eyes whenever Summer blames herself for Austin’s death? Either he died by Kyle’s hand; Kyle knows much more than he is letting on he does; or, TPTB want to create another stupid mystery of “who ‘done’ it?” On a different note: what was that thing Sage was wearing? A black lace bib?

It is way too early to truly judge, as everyone deserves a chance, but on first impression, Lachlan as Kyle seems okay, but as for Hayley playing Kiki, she is an adorable, young girl, but I am just not feeling her in that role “yet”. Wishing them both good luck !

Personally, once I heard Kristen Alderson was leaving, I was hoping she’d take the role of Kiki with her. I do not like this new lame actress and I won’t be investing in this character anymore than I invested in Kristen’s version of her. Like the character of Christina, they need to put this one to pasture too!

Lachlan Buchanan /Kyle is or looks too young to be Kyle, a businessman..
Kyle held some power and on his way as a businessman in a powerful company and nuKyle looks like kid ..
Kyle should be more worldly suffocated but looks way too young for Kyle..
Kyle does not fit in with the Abbott family, not at all..

nuKiki, I am not sure yet… She seems to fit in, doing well ..

Su….what is your insistence with Kyle being 34/35? You are so adamant about it you have felt the need to say it in at least 3 posts. Kyle is nowhere near 34 or 35. In the context of the show he is about 26 as him and Abby were both specimins of stolen sperm.

Su, Kyle is not in his mid thirties–he’s just not. About 7 or 8 years ago he was played by a very annoying kid of about 12. As you tell us all the time, you must utilize your ability to suspend disbelief. You cannot get all hung up with age when viewing any soap opera. It will drive you insane. On another note, has Abby changed out of that absurd Valentine’s Day get up yet? She looks like a private school girl trying to jazz up her school uniform. She also looks more ridiculous in that get up than she… Read more »

None of the characters remotely act their ages anyhow– old and young alike: complete immaturity in their antics…. they never seem to have outgrown “high school behavior.” I am the broken record: Writers, please have these characters grow up! I ranted on another post about having an audience TRUST the stories and the characters but that is impossible with all that is going on. When the audience doesn’t trust your craft anymore, they slowly (or maybe quickly) drift away. Writers– are you out there reading these posts?

Nukiki I agree someone saying they should have waited at least a couple of weeks, she to me look more like Ava daughter than KA but she to me was boring, she was just saying her lines, maybe it is nerves everyone has them, so hopefully she will grow into the roll, I wish she would change her name to Lauren,but that me never like the name of Kiki I know that trival, but that is just what I am thinking now

I don’t know… if she was recast, fired, or replaced by Emme Rylan as the nuAbby

Mariah can not be 25. Cassie died at age 15…..Summer was born as a product of the grief of that death about a year later. Summer is 19 so As Cassie’s twin, Mariah also has to be 16 years older than Summer which would put her at 35. That would make Sharon 51 or 52. Do you see where I am going? This show has completely beyond repair botched the ages of their characters. Its best to pretend these shows happen in a strange vortex where ages are interchangeable. Logic has no bearing.

Su, we must separate the character from the actor, right? But, if Kyle is, indeed, playing the role of a 35-year old, then TPTB must be idiots. “They” must do some rewriting and re-tracking for nuKyle’s role to be accepted. As it is, this age thing is becoming an obstacle for me because every time Kyle comes on, I fixate on his age, trying to discern if he looks 35. NOPE! He looks his age…24.

Why would Kyle or abby be 34 or 35? If we’re going with their birth dates they’d both most likely be teens at most; let’s not forget that on one life to live Blair was originally asian..then wasnt, so shaving a few years off a previous actor is no biggie. .be nice to see Kyle with Mariah

Ridiculous how they’ve made Kyle so much younger. Best Kyle was Blake Hood, who JFP should have kept but replaced with one of her own, and that guy failed. Now this new, much younger Kyle. Nothing personal but his acting just isnt there. Another Y&R character replacement fail. Another funny thing is that new Kiki on GH was Summer on Y&R and JFP replaced her as well and brought in the whiney Summer we have now. New Kiki is okay so far. I do think her hair should be a little darker…after all they made Kristen Alderson darken her hair… Read more »

Love Lachlan Buchanan. He looks like Kyle and fits in really well. He is also good looking. Hayley Erin was bad on Y&R. Not a big GH watcher,but her acting ability is weak. GH has a weak younger set right now that has no spark. I do like how Y&R is really starting to play up it’s younger set.

KYLE: Horrible, just horrible. The kid can act but the key word here is kid. He was an older dude when he last appeared on the show and went off to work out of town on Jabot business. Now you recast him and he is a young kid again in a Scooby Doo story line. VERY dumb! If they have him work at Jabot again as a businessman, it will be a huge joke! Kiki: The girl isnt bad.

Kyle was born in 2001 then they SORAS him to 22 in 2012, so the character would be 25ish– this actor is 24– totally right for the character. In my mind they are just correcting a mistake they made when they cast the last guy who was looked and acted way too old for the role. As for his job qualifications Victoria was running a division for Newman when she was barely 20 and had no experience– when daddy runs the company I guess age doesn’t matter- but most of these issues are related to SORASing characters– it really messes… Read more »

Not really Mariah was born January 8th 1991 so both her & Kevin are the oldest. OMG how did we get in this. Does it really matter?

No it does not ! Kevin was brought on ten years ago and has been involved with Billy, Daniel group. Now we have him with this generation! Yuck big disappointment the biggest problem was when MAB aged Summer in two weeks that character has thrown everything off. Doing the long lost twin Mariah who should be 18years older then Summer has made this story never work. As for the character of Kyle yes I agree with people hard to believe he would be a big shot in NY. Chuck Pratt will make a train wreck out of this show and… Read more »

I agree with everything you said k/kay except the Susan Lucci part. She lost a job which gave her a bitter pill. That’s not to say I like C.Pratt but there is nothing we can do about who writers or produces the show. I doubt they care what fans think. Think about it we wanted Billy Miller/ Michael Muhney/Michel Stafford to stay. Did they listen? When there was talk about bringing Kyle back we the fans asked for Blake Hood back. Did they listen? They asked for a new/younger Summer. Did they listen? There was some petition going around to… Read more »

Nikki, no it doesn’t matter. That said, we’ve watched Kevin Kevin for so long it’s hard not to recognize that he’s a lot older than Archie, Jughead, Betty and Veronica.
And I swore I would not get sucked into the age vortex, but Mariah being born in 91 makes her twenty-four. Kevin is a good fifteen years older than her–a whole generation. I think Kevin is too old for Mariah but I do like them as friends.

Ahhhh…a good place to point you to a reference Harry. Check out the post on Ava and Silas and scroll down to the comment bray Aden on Alex, baby drama and AGE. Then keep reading…the subject and tired old’ ageism just rages, redundantly, on. Which by the way has nothing to do with this post and age…don’t watch the show…no idea who’s who here. (But you do realize Archie, Veronica, Betty and Jughead are senior citizens now, doncha?)

Rebecca, sometimes it is so difficult to maintain contact as I don’t receive email notifications when someone replies to my comments and sometimes my comments are not posted. I did find the threads to which you alluded. I don’t know what to say except it made me a little sad. You and I seem to disagree on just about everything. However, we always manage to disagree with civility. I do not understand what happened there. I hope it didn’t dishearten you too much. Yes, Betty, Veronica, Archie and Jughead would be senior citizens if they were real people. However, the… Read more »

I’m impressed with the new Kiki and thought it was nice that they said the role of Kiki Jerome is now being played by, which I haven’t heard in a long time. Some of the best actors in Daytime were recasts including Erika Slezak, Kassie Depriva, etc.

Sorry…but I am N-O-T impressed with the new Kyle (Y&R) or with the new Kiki (GH). To me, they both look like kids in high school. To me, EPIC FAIL TIMES 2!!!!! No thanks. Next…

My sentiments exactly, Jaybird. But, we must be patient and give them their due. Later.

Lachlan Buchanan was very good especially given the material. I think he benefits that this role has never been written with much depth — something I don’t expect to change with Pratt — plus the last actor in the role didn’t make much of an impression.

As for Hayley Erin, her acting style doesn’t seem to have changed much from her time on Y&R. I suspect the role will be recast again very soon.

It will definitely take some getting used to. I prefer the other Kyle he had a nice demeanor whereas this new Kyle looks like a bad guy. Certainly prefer old Kiki but I am sure I will get used to the new one.

Kyle was okay. Just don’t like the story. It is dragging onfor far too long.

Don’t watch GH, but hope Hayley’s acting has improved from when she was on Y&R. Was super surprised with the casting choice as I didn’t think Hayley was that good on Y&R.

Well, Mo, not to soap standard, it isn’t…..it is not taking too long, Lol. It has only been what? A week? Two weeks? That’s nothing for TPTB. I hope it does end soon. But, I doubt it. We still don’t know who killed Austin.

The casting of these young female roles are always a hit or miss. This new Kiki is a half pint. They needed a young Gina Tognoni type, an actress with a little hardness, a NY edge. She’s a mobster’s daughter from Manhattan. I actually thought KA did a better job as Kiki as they darkened her hair and made her more ballsy and outspoken. There was a good balance of tenderness with the edges. I feel the same about Emmy Ryan in the Lulu role; total miscast. I liked ER as Lizzy and she even worked for a while as… Read more »

I finally liked Kristen Alderson as Kiki (always loved her as Starr Manning) when they moved her story away from Chad Duell. They may be great offscreen, but their pairing put me to sleep. She really got a chance to spread her wings when she had more interaction with veterans, Maura West and Michael Easton.

I was sad to see her go after finally being in a good place on screen.

I like Hayley Erin, I think she’s cute and will bring good chemistry to the show. I do miss Kristen Alderson, she can understand why she’s want to do something new. I saw Kristen in the audience of the Bachelor show tonight.

Well I guess it really doesn’t matter all the soaps screw up with ages have for years. Look at Days Sammi and EJ Dimera when EJ was born two years on screen after her son Will! Crazy!

It’s too soon to judge either of them. My first impression of nuKyle, though is that he seems younger and less mature than Sawyer Hartley portrayed him. This Kyle seems like a teeny bopper. I have to say, however, I really cannot stand how CHEESY this storyline has become. It was bad enough with the cabin mystery, but now we have to endure all these “flashbacks” that happened off camera between Abby, Austin and Kyle? Give me a break. That is THE cheapest and laziest way to tell a story. Wrap this up soon … please! Oh and I guess… Read more »

Did you all see Kristen Alderson in the audience of the Bachelor on Monday? I swear it was her.

Hayley doesn’t seem to fit, literally and figuratively, in the role of Kiki…. but we’ll see. She should go see Franko and see if he says she looks different or I don’t recognize you or who are you… especially after those last scenes with Kristen. 🙂

It’s been awhile since Hayley Erin started her role as Kiki. I’ve tried to be patient with her growth but haven’t seen any. The scenes with her shrieking over her father and at Franco were over played and not genuine. I’m really upset about Michael Easton leaving the show too. I’d love to see someone else given a shot as Kiki.

ABC Previews General Hospital’s Halloween Episode

Fight Night will definitely have an impact on the lives of the citizens of Port Charles, on the upcoming Thursday, October 29th episode of the ABC daytime drama series.

Announced by ABC today, along with primetime’s Dancing with the Stars, The Conners, Supermarket Sweep, and America’s Funniest Home Videos, GH is having some ghoulish goings-on for the trick or treat holiday.

Unbeknownst to them, Julian notices the kids are being watched a little too closely by a masked individual. Uneasy and unable to shake the feeling that something is off, Julian confronts the man. Meanwhile, Carly is stunned when Cyrus brings a familiar acquaintance to dinner at the Metro Court. And elsewhere, Finn and Anna’s plans to take Violet trick-or-treating are hampered when Finn is called back to GH, leaving Anna alone, unaware that a particularly evil threat awaits her.”

Gregory Harrison Is The New Gregory Chase On General Hospital

General Hospital just got hotter as it beef’s up its storyline featuring Kim Delaney as Jackie Templeton.  Now comes word that TV veteran, Gregory Harrison has come to the ABC daytime drama series as the recast Gregory Chase.

The character of Gregory Chase was previously played by DAYS James Read, who plays the treacherous Clyde Weston now and then on the NBC soap.

With Harrison taking on the role of Finn (Michael Easton) and Chase’s (Josh Swickard) father, that makes things a little juicier in the romantic department.

According to EW.com who broke the casting news, Harrison begins taping today Wednesday at the ABC studios for General Hospital and fans can look forward to his debut on-screen in a few weeks.

As to the storyline: “Fireworks could be on the horizon for Harrison’s character.”

TV fans remember Gregory from the hit series Trapper John M.D., then later on Falcon Crest, Judging Amy, One Tree Hill and more.  He also has frequently appeared in Lifetime and Hallmark Channel movies most recently.

So, what do you think about the Gregory Chase recast with Gregory Harrison? Intrigued? Comment below.
