Angell Conwell
Actress Angell Conwell is returning to CBS' "The Young and the Restless" next month as Leslie Michaelson, reports Soap Opera Digest. According to the publication, Conwell's character is being called to Genoa City to help someone in need of her legal expertise on the Monday, March 14 episode of the soap.
Kate Mansi
Ever since Kate Mansi (Abigail Deveraux) announced she was leaving "Days of our Lives" when her contract expires, fans have been agonizing over the impending loss. Not only will they be losing the show's most popular 20-something heroine, but also half of the most beloved and charismatic supercouple the soap has developed in years, Chad and Abby. That is, unless "DAYS" recasts Abigail.
Ron Carlivati
As previously reported, the "General Hospital" writing team consisting of former head writer Ron Carlivati, and writers Anna Theresa Cascio, Andrea Archer Compton, Suzanne Flynn, Kate Hall, Elizabeth Korte, Daniel James O’Connor, Elizabeth Page, Jean Passanante, Katherine Schock, Scott Sickles and Chris Van Etten, took home the Writers Guild Award on Saturday, February 13 in the category of Daytime Drama. The soap beat out CBS' "The Bold and the Beautiful," the only other series nominated in the category. At press time, Carlivati's acceptance speech was unavailable. That has since changed.
Jason Thompson, The Talk
On today's edition of CBS' "The Talk," "The Young and the Restless" star Jason Thompson (Billy Abbott) appeared for the first time on the daytime talk show. After welcoming him to the CBS family, the co-hosts asked the actor about working on the soap opera and how things have gone so far him, including how easy it was to be "sleeping" in bed while his castmates cried over the possible loss of his character. The actor also shared where he hides his lines when necessary.
Kristoff St. John (Neil Winters) has reached a milestone -- his 25th year anniversary on "The Young and the Restless." In honor of the special occasion, a gathering was held on the show's CBS sound stage, last Friday. Cast, crew, "Y&R" co-creator Lee Phillip Bell and the actor's daughters, Paris and Lola, were all on hand to celebrate the talented actor.
Jason Thompson
A familiar face to fans of "The Young and the Restless" and "General Hospital" guests on "The Talk" on Monday, February 15. Daytime vet Jason Thompson (Billy Abbott, "Y&R;" ex-Patrick Drake, "GH") stops by the CBS talk show for a chat with hosts Julie Chen, Sara Gilbert, Sharon Osbourne, Aisha Tyler and Sheryl Underwood.

Jordi Vilasuso
After portraying Griffin Castillo on "All My Children" and Tony Santos on "Guiding Light," actor Jordi Vilasuso decided the timing was right for another turn in daytime. Lucky for him, "Days of our Lives" was looking to expand the Hernandez clan with the return of Dario (last played by Francisco San Martin). After meeting with executive producer Ken Corday, co-executive producer Albert Alaar and co-head writer Josh Griffith last summer, Vilasuso responded well to the idea of portraying a "very intelligent" character on the soap.
