The hottie factor just went up a notch in Genoa City with the casting news today that The Young and the Restless has added Miles Gaston Villanueva as its latest cast member.
Villanueva is set to play the all-new role of Luca Santori described as “Strong-willed, confident and charismatic.” Miles will appear beginning on the September 16th episode of the CBS Daytime drama, according to Soap Opera Digest.
If you think Miles looks familiar, you are right! He already appeared on Y&R in the short term role of Father Eric, who assisted Nikki (Melody Thomas Scott) and Paul (Doug Davidson) for the search of their child.
The actor also appeared on Days of our Lives in the role of Russ back in 2014, and has been seen on Melissa & Joey, Chasing Life, NCIS and Bones to name a few.
So could Luca be a relative of Marissa’s (Sofia Pernas) or Marco’s (Peter Bergman)? Why do you think Luca comes to Genoa City? Who could he be paired romantically with? Share your theories in the comment section below!
