Another Aussie talent comes to CBS Daytime! Actor Lachlan Buchanan, formerly of the hit Australian soap opera Home and Away, and also from ABC Family’s Pretty Little Liars, has been cast as the new Kyle Abbott on the number one daytime drama, The Young and the Restless! Last year, Australian actress Ashleigh Brewer joined Y&R’s sister soap, The Bold and the Beautiful as Ivy Forrester. And of course, Y&R also features the talents of down under’s Daniel Goddard (Cane).
Buchanan told Soap Opera Digest that he will be using an American accent when he bows on the series! Lachlan will begin taping next week on January 27th, and will begin airing on February 25th!
On Twitter this morning with the release of this casting news, Lachlan tweeted: “So excited to start my new adventure with the brilliant team at the Young and Restless”
Lachlan takes on the key role of the son of Jack Abbott (Peter Bergman) which was last played by Blake Hood, and then Hartley Sawyer.
