Also seems worth mentioning that DC is reporting Robert Adamson (Noah) has been bumped to recurring, shortly after Sofia Pernas (Marissa) was bumped to recurring. According to DC, it was due to lack of story, which is kind of surprising. http://daytimeconfidential.com/2016/03/21/robert-adamson-taken-off-contract-at-yr
Also, SOD reported that Lachlan Buchanan (Kyle) is done at Y&R: http://www.soapoperadigest.com/content/lachlan-buchanan-yr.
Robert Adamson has been doing great, but if they’re wrapping up his arc then I’m glad he is recurring rather than out all together.
Lachlan Buchanan was good, but I don’t see a need for Kyle unless they resurrect Diane.
I am very disappointed about the news on Robert Adamson ): Noah is a personal favorite of mine. I find Marissa superfluous. I forgot that Kyle was still on the show! (;
I forgot to add this one, a mysterious stranger Y&R is adding in the form of Michael Roark: http://www.soapoperadigest.com/content/exclusive-yr-casts-new-role-2
Yeah, I guess I’m glad that Adamson and Pernas are recurring rather than out. I like both Noah and Marissa, but I don’t have a very strong reaction to them not being on all that much. I actually have yet to see Lachlan Buchanan on screen, as Kyle’s been in New York for the last few months. I guess his main purposes was to capitalize on the paternity confusion with Summer by getting involved with his maybe sister. (It amazes me that incest storylines are still a thing.)
I debated created a new thread for this, but since this one already exists:
Alicia Coppola is joining Y&R!: http://www.soapoperadigest.com/content/exclusive-alicia-coppola-joins-yr
Sounds interesting! I remember Coppola’s Lorna from her AW days fondly.
I am rather puzzled that Sofia Pernas and Robert Adamson have been bumped to recurring. The decisions made by soap execs seem to make less sense with every passing year.
Also, this has me wondering whether the show will continue writing story for Miles Gaston Villanueva. He has pretty much become my favorite character on the show. And he is literally on every day. They really need to put him on contract and write for him.
They really should put Miles Gaston Villanueva on contract, I agree. Considering that Luca is so involved with Victor, Summer, and all the Newman/Abbott stuff, and has already granted Marissa her divorce, it seems like they’re moving him out of the Noah/Marissa orbit almost entirely.
