Zach Tinker Makes a Return to The Young and the Restless

Photo: JPI

Zach Tinker, who can currently be seen on Peacock’s Days of our Lives as Sonny Kiriakis, is also making his way back to his old stomping grounds of Genoa City.

The actor who is no longer on contract at DAYS, but is on recurring status, will soon be on-screen reprising his role of Fenmore Baldwin on Y&R.

As Y&R viewers know, Fen is the son of Michael (Christian LeBlanc) and Lauren (Tracey E. Bregman).

Tinker last appeared in the role back in December of 2019.

What prompts Fenmore’s return to town? Well, Lauren is about to receive a Lifetime Achievement Award for her work in fashion.

According to Soap Opera Digest (in their latest issue on newsstands now), the story coincides with Bregman’s 40th anniversary with the top-rated daytime drama and a special episode.

Look for Zach’s return on January 25th.

What do you think of Zach coming back to Y&R to honor his on-screen mom? Comment below.

Why is this character not on Y&R full time? Fen is both YOUNG and RESTLESS, and Zach does good work.

I totally agree. Look at that smile, the eyes, the hair…what a dreamboat. Bring him on!

Almost didn’t recognize poor Noah, they literally did a hatchet job on him. He must have been unconscious , I can’t believe he’d actually sit still for what they did to him.

He is so cute–always liked him, Soaphound. He shoud be in Genoa City on a regular basis—let’s get some REAL stories going—not Diane, Jack and their ridiculous “heist”— the most stupid storyline yet. Has Diane really changed? What are the chances her intentions have always been corrupt . Certainly not pristine–When I see her, I always get a sense of the macabre. LOL. She’ll take Nikki’s “priceless” cubic zirconia necklace and run off with Stark, to boot!! Oh, Jack, you’re such a jacka$$!! an apropos namesake– Taken-in by a known Succubus??– at your age?? –“.When will they ever learn; when… Read more »

Celia, why can’t those Abbott men see the absurdity of sitting in a coffee shop having a casual conversation about Jack strolling into Nikki’s pied-a-terre and swiping her bling? Kyle the whipped son is bad enough but Jack-Ass? It’s NAUSEATING. And now Victor coercing spineless (but gorgeous) Kyle into submarining Adam…AGAIN?? I simply can’t bear it, Celia dear, I can’t bear it. At least GH has something going right now.

Oh, I’m with you, Soaphound!! GH has it going everywhichway!! Good for the writers—they’re offering everything. The good. The bad. Suspense. Emotion. Mystery. And, amazing acting from most.
Personally, I do not like Jack–never did—especially when he does that thing with his mouth. Plus—get rid of Diane—-she is after something and when she gets it? Heartbreak for Kyle, again.Ciao, bella!!

Gotta run, Soaphound, but—is it possible that Stark is now “straight”? On the right side of the law?
—or maybe, seeking revenge on Diane? Oh, yes—plase, let it be!!

Oh Celia, I hope so..Jeremy working with the Feds to nail Diane? I’d love it! Watching both Jack and Jeremy lusting after this bimbo’s “favors” is just the height of absurdity. And Summer needs to cut her losses; her simpering husband has made his choice…Diane or nothing. So leave him with nothing!

Celia

Don’t you just hate that?—a husband whose mother comes before you?? Not in my case, but I know a few women who are going through that—After what Diane did, it’s galling to see this virago have the upoer hand over these stupid men.
And, yes—it would certainly be poetic justice, if not irony, if Shark, oops, Stark, were working with the Feds.

I can think of alot of useless younger set characters that are irrelevant
Allie, Noah, Tessa, Mariah , Abby that can go to make room for him!
Fenn should be stayed years ago when they were maybe pairing him with Anna, Devon a sis! He also has soo much history and chemistry with Summer and Lola at the time! Zach Tinkers such a keeper.

Well here is hoping that this soap goes down in flames!! We are telling stories from ten years ago the same repeats and the actors that are still front and center have no problem! Tracey congrats on 40 years you still look great and yes Finn should have been front and center as Noah among others sorry but you have to move on you have JM still thinking he is a young stud playing the same old tired storyline just sick! And sorry I am not interested in Sally just not interested

And he is parenting a ghost child! Christian ?? Sharon never had a scene outside of the coffee house? One of the most popular characters on the show and all her children are gone !! Mariah and Tessa gone no home absolute bull

Damien

Sharon’s kids are boring
Mariah was exciting until she was paired with Tessa, Noah’s so lame and Faith was great but now gone because Griffith can’t write for the young set

Maybe they are planning on doing a big story one day with Christain as the central character. He is Adam’s son by birth making him Conner’s half brother, nephew to Nick and cousins to his kids and Victoria’s.

Fenmore needs to return full time and they should pair him with Sally Spectra and should comfort her after she miscarry the baby or terminates the pregnancy.

Tani Sterling

Curious whether Y&R would take on termnating a pregnancy. Timing would be interesting process wise as well as certainly an option for Sally. Thus far it seems it may have jumped over the option.

A termination can be done on the QT, not necessarily a storyline.

Of course.

I don’t want Y&R to go down in flames as some have suggested. What about taking on one of the most timely issues of day as it did with mental health: Abortion! Take it on with understanding and sensitivity.

Good idea but I guess they are changing his character to homosexual on this show while maintaining it on Days. Waste as far as I’m concerned.

Agree with Violet regarding Noah’s haircut! The Diane storyline is egregious. However, for me, Diane is an outstanding actress. Jack has morphed into such a weak character. Hard to even think of the man as head of a strong and striving company. I sometimes feel sorry for him!

Thanks with the agreement about Noah’s haircut, what was he thinking? I also agree about Diane. Does anyone wish her well? I’m afraid to trust her because of her past. I’ve always felt that Jack’s character, when it comes to women is weak, he can’t see the forest for the trees. Look at his choice of women over the years, so strong and conniving. I don’t understand how he and Sharon ever got together, let alone married.

No longer under contract on Days.
Once again, the PTB screw up. I’m mad. So, I can now watch the Sonny/Will/Leo storyline and say Who Cares. Great.

This is such a sorry mess of a show anymore. The important characters we used to value they have done away with. Tracy, Paul, Esther and turning Jack in to someone too stupid to run a company. Where are the intelligent writers of yesterday. Mr. Bell must be turning over in his grave.

As soon as I saw him, I noticed he was sonny on days of our lives, and I was wondering why he was on young and the restless but I’m glad he is he is he plays the characters well. ❤️

I love Zack Tinker who plays Fen and Sonny on Days, but please tell me who was that little twerp with Fen whom he introduced as his boyfriend? OMG, the kid was hanging all over poor Fen, how embarrassing!

Keep him around for awhile! Good to see him, Danny & Daniel after so long! Old can definitely be fresh again!

Marcus Coloma On His GH Exit: “I Don’t Know Why That Decision Was Made, But I Don’t Feel Any ill Will and I Didn’t Feel I Got Fired”

This week, GH fans saw Adam Huss returning to the ABC soap opera as Nikolas Cassadine to finish out the rest of the scenes originally intended to be played by Marcus Coloma who ended his three-year run on the show a tad early.

As has been previously reported, Coloma came down with Covid-19 as his final tape days neared, and a decision was made for him to not return to finish off his last run of episodes.

With all the rumors and stances taken by everyone involved, Coloma was the special guest on this week’s episode of the That’s Awesome Podcast hosted by Steve Burton and Bradford Anderson and discussed his departure from the long-running daytime drama series.

Marcus expressed that when he took the role on GH, he was excited to be in that kind of environment (working on a soap opera), and only signed on for three years.  However, as time went by it became more difficult to reconcile leaving when his contract was up, sharing: “You fall in love with the crew and everybody along with it. So, two and a half years in, this decision that was so clear in the beginning is getting complicated.”

The actor added that while, “I knew the end was coming, it wasn’t like GH was saying, ‘Hey, Marcus, we want you to stay.’  There was no negotiation … and all I can say to that is I don’t know why that decision was made, but I don’t feel any ill will and I didn’t feel like I got fired. It just felt like … there was maybe an understanding that I was going to be there for three years. The big surprise is how much it hurt. Even though I knew I was going to leave.”

In the end, Coloma reflected that this may have concluded as it should, adding, “I really do have some big goals and those goals would have never been realized if I would have stayed. That’s not to take anything away from GH because I admire everything about it.”

Watch the episode of That’s Awesome featuring Coloma below.

Then weigh-in, what do you think of Marcus’ thoughts on his exit as GH’s Nikolas Cassadine? Share your thoughts in the comment section.

According to Deadline, Ripa will host Let’s Talk Off Camera with Kelly Ripa, where she will have in-depth conversations with celebrity guests. Depending on the subject matter, a specialist or expert could also join the episode to provide insight.

I have dreamed of a platform where I can have these honest talks without all the fuss and filter of a camera. Now SiriusXM has made my dream a reality with a podcast featuring friends, both old and new, discussing a variety of topics we all face in life, while getting deep with some experts’ views and advice along the way. Not another podcast, this is off camera!”

New episodes of Let’s Talk Off Camera with Kelly Ripa will be available every week on Stitcher, the SXM App, and all major podcast listening platforms beginning in March.

Kelly will be quite busy co-hosting the syndicated talk show Live with Kelly and Ryan, in addition to Let’s Talk Off Camera with Kelly Ripa.
