Y&R’s Lachlan Buchanan and GH’s Hayley Erin Make Their Debuts: What Were Your First Impressions?


Last week, saw the debuts of two recasts on two of your favorite daytime drama series.  First, Lachlan Buchanan came on to the scene as the recast Kyle Abbott on The Young and the Restless. The role of Jack (Peter Bergman) and Diane’s son was last played by Hartley Sawyer.

Lachlan’s Kyle is already coming in to the mix in Genoa City in a whole heap of hot water as one of the prime suspects in the “murder” of Austin (Matthew Atkinson), especially if you check out the latest CBS Daytime promo for Y&R this week!

Over in Port Charles, Hayley Erin, who once played Abby Newman on Y&R, has taken over the role of Kiki Jerome from longtime soap opera fan favorite, Kristen Alderson.


As viewers know, it was Alderson’s decision to leave to purse other career opportunities and personal interests.  Erin made her General Hospital debut in scenes with Bryan Craig (Morgan) and William deVry (Julian), centering on conversations on having a wake for her believed-to-be-dead mother, Ava (Maura West).

So, while viewers are just seeing these two recast actors getting their feet wet in their new roles, what were your first impressions?  Do you think you will enjoy seeing Lachlan and Hayley on Y&R and GH?  Watch this week’s promo for Y&R which features Lachlan after the jump.  Next, share your thoughts on the recasts in the comment section below.
