Celebrating their 11, 000 episode milestone this week on the September 1st airshow, The Young and the Restless and CBS Daytime released on Tuesday a special video featuring Christian LeBlanc (Michael) as he chats with many of the mainstays in Genoa City regarding the latest accomplishment for the top-rated series.
LeBlanc gets a myriad of thoughts from several Y&R castmates on their favorite moments and scenes, remembrances, what makes the show as well as it has, and what being part of TV history means to them, and most of all some “shout outs” to the fans for their enduring support.
Christian speaks with: Sharon Case (Sharon), Joshua Morrow (Nick), Lauralee Bell (Christine), Steve Burton (Dylan), Kristoff St. John (Neil) Peter Bergman (Jack), Melody Thomas Scott (Nikki), Eric Braeden (Victor), Melissa Ordway (Abby), and Doug Davidson (Paul). Y&R’s co-creator Lee Phillip Bell also appears.
However, it was Lauralee Bell who spoke of her father, the late, great Bill Bell (Y&R co-creator) that touched us the most. Lauralee related to the camera: “On behalf of my parents, this was their dream true come true, and it’s still going on. I know my dad is around here somewhere, and my mom is here today. So, thank you.”
