Having wrapped up her stints as “The Bold and the Beautiful” and “The Young and the Restless’” Amber Moore, actress Adrienne Frantz is setting off in a new direction with her latest role: A guest spot on FX’s western series, “Justified!”
“The Young and the Restless” brought the soap opera community to tears this past May with an emotional and very well planned memorial for the late Jeanne Cooper (Katherine Chancellor), who passed away due to an illness that same month. And now the sudser is pulling out all of the stops yet again to honor the character Cooper played for 40 years. The emotional storyline has already begun playing out with several of Genoa City’s residents receiving letters from the grand dame, and Doug Davidson (Paul Williams) says this is just the start of a powerful story arc that will change the small Wisconsin town in more ways than one.
As previously reported, CBS' "The Young and the Restless" will honor the life of Katherine Chancellor on Tuesday, September 3 and Wednesday, September 4, when the soap opera pays tribute to the character and her portrayer, Jeanne Cooper, in a two-part memorial service. Per a website dedicated to the character, Katherine died on Thursday, August 1 after a short illness. Cooper died on Wednesday, May 8, also from a brief illness. Fan favorites Lauralee Bell (Christine), Tricia Cast (Nina Webster), Beau Kazer (Brock Reynolds), Adrienne Frantz (Amber Moore), Patty Weaver (Gina Roma) and Michael Damian (Danny Romalotti) will return for the service along with Cooper's real-life son, Corbin Bernsen, who will reprise his role as Father Todd who presides over Katherine's service. Damian will perform “That's When I'll Stop Loving You,” the song that aired in the tribute episode dedicated to Cooper in May.
