( — As previously reported, Paul Leyden is joining the cast of CBS' "The Young and the Restless" in October in the role of Blake, who shares a history with Cane (Daniel Goddard). Now Soap Opera Network has your first look at Leyden on set.

Leyden began filming on Tuesday, September 7 with his first airdate set for Wednesday, October 6. In it a bit of irony, former "World Turns" co-star Maura West began taping on Wednesday, September 1 with her first air date set for Friday, October 8 as a recast Diane Jenkins, which is two days after Leyden debuts, but one week after West began taping. Got to give it to tricky editing.

Prior to landing at "Y&R," Leyden portrayed the role of Simon Frasier on CBS' "As The World Turns" in February 2000 and appeared off-and-on until June 2004. He returned to the soap for a seven month turn in June 2006 and again in November 2009. He starred along-side television icon Heather Locklear ("Dynasty," "Melrose Place" and "Melrose Place 2.0") in the failed 2004 NBC drama series "LAX," which also starred actor Blair Underwood ("The Event" and "Dirty Sexy Money"). Leyden wrote, produced and directed the 2009 short film "Bye Bye Sally," which also starred another "World Turns" alum Paolo Seganti.
