Heartbreaking news hitting social media this morning. Y&R alum, Beau Kazer has died. The actor who for years played the son of Katherine Chancellor, Brock Reynolds passed away at age 63 at his home in Thousand Oaks, California on December 30th, according to reports.
Beau is survived by his wife Sharon Alkus who wanted to let everyone know just how much Y&R was a part of his life, and that he was very proud to be a part of.
The actor came on to the scene at Y&R back in 1974, and made frequent appearances over the next several decades. And as had been told by the the late Jeanne Cooper (Katherine Chancellor) in her memoir, “Not Young, Still Restless”, even though Beau had played her son the show, they at one point had a romantic relationship.
Beau has changed his name over the years from “Beau Kayser” to more recently “Beau Kazer”.
Patti Denney, hair and make up artist at Y&R tweeted: “So sad to hear of the passing of Beau Kayser … Brock Reynolds on the Young &The Restless…Kay Chancellor’s son… rest in peace Beau.” Doug Davidson (Paul, Y&R) related, “He was such a loving, sweet man who loved life and the show. I will miss him.”
