The stars of The Young and the Restless, past and present took to social media on Monday to honor the late, great Bill Bell, the iconic creator of the CBS top-rated daytime drama series.
Bell, would have turned 90-years old-today on March 6th, but passed away back in 2005. Heartfelt posts from the actors circulated with the common throughline of thanking this extraordinary talented man for the roles in which they play, and for many giving them their careers, and for his pure genius.
Included in the tribute were: Eric Braeden, Lauralee Bell (Bill’s daughter), Doug Davidson, Joshua Morrow, Michelle Stafford (now on GH), Greg Rikaart, Christian LeBlanc, Kate Linder, Sharon Case, and many others.
Below is a sample of the sentiments and remembrances shared today.
