Now here’s some interesting casting news. None other than Chrishell Stause is heading to Genoa City and CBS’ The Young and the Restless.
The actress who first appeared on the daytime scene on All My Children (Ex-Amanda) and then Days of our Lives (Ex-Jordan) is set to stir things up when her new character of Bethany Bryant arrives on the scene.
According to TV Line who first broke the news, Bethany is a young woman who relishes the chance to push things to the limit and live dangerously as long as she’s not the one who gets burned. The wild child will find herself immersed in a prominent family’s juicy drama.
Stause will make her Y&R debut on the May 23rd episode. In real life, Stause is dating Y&R leading man, Justin Hartley (Adam) and is best friends with Justin’s on-screen lady love Melissa Claire Egan (Chelsea).
Hartley took to Twitter to support of the Stause casting news stating: “This is great news!!! Proud of this lady and proud of the show for this fine hire!!”
Meanwhile. Stause was overwhelmed with the support from CBS Daytime tweeting: “WOW-do you guys know how to make a girl feel special!! I grew up watching Y&R w/ my mom & I can’t tell you what this warm welcome means.”
