In an “Oh, My God” moment, and casting bombshell, The Young and the Restless has nabbed none other than Guiding Light Daytime Emmy winner, and the former star of ABC’s Lost, Cynthia Watros for a new recurring role!
Watros best known to daytime audiences for her stunning portrayal of wacko Annie Dutton on the defunct CBS soap opera Guiding Light, begins work next week on Y&R and will first be seen on-screen in Genoa City in November.
According to EW.com, “Watros will play a character named Kelly who will have a profound influence on the lives of several characters, including Billy, Victoria and Chloe.”
Having made her mark on Guiding Light as Annie, Watros captivated daytime audiences in a role that earned her a Lead Actress Daytime Emmy. In 1998, she took over the role of Victoria Hudson McKinnon on Another World, while Jensen Buchanan was out on maternity leave. She played Libby on Lost, and more recently she has appeared in her own web series, Cynthia Watr0s Gets Lost!
