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.
As we get closer to daytime's biggest night, taking place on Sunday, May 1, the industry is abuzz today over which actors were submitted for a pre-nomination for the "The 43rd Annual Daytime Emmy Awards," presented by The National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences (NATAS). With at least two actors per show for each category (exception being Supporting Actress) several of daytime television's biggest and brightest stars are looking to vie for the coveted trophy that celebrates their hard work during calendar year 2015.
Melissa Claire Egan
A panicked wife turns up her efforts to find her missing husband, this week on "The Young and the Restless." Fearing Adam (Justin Hartley) may have been kidnapped by the ruthless Santori family, Chelsea (Melissa Claire Egan) goes to Nick (Joshua Morrow) and begs him for help.
Jason Thompson
It's out with the old and in with the new on January 13, when Jason Thompson debuts as Billy Abbott on “The Young and the Restless.” Thompson replaces Burgess Jenkins, who joined the soap in June 2014 replacing David Tom. But let's face it, he'll be judged by whether or not he measures up to Billy Miller's portrayal of the popular character.
With a new year on the horizon it's inevitable that you'll be seeing a multitude of best and worst lists covering every facet of the entertainment world, and soaps are no exception. In his Best and Worst of 2015 report, TV Guide's Michael Logan has named CBS' "The Bold and the Beautiful" daytime's best soap, praises "General Hospital" and "The Young and the Restless" for having the best actors and actresses, and calls out some of daytime's current and former writers for insulting viewers with tawdry storylines lacking direction.
