Fan favorite and Daytime Emmy winner, Jeff Branson is once again leaving The Young and the Restless as Ronan Malloy!
According to the latest Soap Opera Digest on sale early this week and now newsstands now due to the Thanksgiving holiday, “The actor, who returned in June, has come to the end of his six-month run and will exit Genoa City once again.”
This comes as a disappointment to many soapers who were digging Michelle Stafford’s Phyllis with Branson’s Ronan, and who have also been clamoring for more scenes between Branson and his on-screen mother, Nina played by Tricia Cast. And let’s not forget that the teen that Ronan is mentoring is being cyperbullied by Summer Newman!
As for Branson, he had chosen awhile ago not to go under contract with Y&R to enable him to go off and do other projects. However, could Branson’s popularity eventually land him in Genoa City full-time?
Let us know your thoughts on Branson’s departure, and if you want him to return sooner than later?
