Missing Daytime Emmy winner Jeff Branson from his roles as Ronan Malloy on The Young and the Restless or Shayne Lewis on Guiding Light?
Well, tomorrow night, Branson is co-starring in a new Lifetime movie entitled Zoe Gone which airs at 8PMEST on Lifetime!
According to CBS Soaps In Depth, who spoke with the talented Branson,”It ‘s about Jennifer, a 16-year-old girl who has a baby (Zoe) with the support of her boyfriend, but the pressure is too much for him and he runs away. Her mother is a divorcée who’s got a boyfriend, which is where I come in. He’s the guy who wanted the woman, but not necessarily the child, but took on the role of helping to raise her anyway. But when his gal becomes a grandmother, that wasn’t in his plan. There are some moments of him not understanding and lashing out a bit.”
Later Baby Zoe goes missing! “That kicks in the young lady’s maternal instincts,” Branson relates. “Then the storyline becomes about finding the baby and Jennifer proving to herself the mother that she can be.”
There is more on the horizon for Branson with upcoming roles in Perception and NCIS, but the question remains, will Y&R ever bring back Jeff to Genoa City? He might make a good on-screen romantic partner for Cady McClain’s upcoming recast of Kelly! Thoughts? Comment below!
