Noted and beloved casting director, Judy Blye Wilson, who has to be given so much credit for bringing some of the most talented faces to daytime drama has decided to depart The Young and the Restless, where she has been their casting director since 2012.
In an facebook post late Friday, Wilson shared the news with her friends and colleagues stating: “Today is officially my last day at The Young and The Restless. Yes – I made the decision weeks ago. After thirty years of casting daytime, I feel I need to pause. I am not retiring, just stopping to catch my breath. I have had many wonderful experiences and have made many lifelong friends along the way. I look forward to what the future brings. Love, Judy P.S. Thank you to all for the terrific going away party last night.”
Wilson will be terribly missed by all, as she takes a break from her career in daytime and her some time to herself. Judy has served as casting director on One Life to Live, Another World, Ryan’s Hope, and her longest tenure at All My Children from 1995-2011.
On-Air On-Soaps wishes Judy all the best, and here’s to what the future brings!
