Y&R is pulling out all the stops for the upcoming 11,000 episode milestone to air on CBS on September 1st. Now comes word via TV Insider’s Michael Logan that none other than the co-creator of the iconic number one-rated daytime drama, Lee Phillip Bell will make a cameo in the episode as well!
Look for this beloved matriarch of the Bell family to appear in a scene with her real-life daughter, Lauralee Bell (Christine) and the shows longest running cast member Doug Davidson (Paul).
Where will the scene go down? But of course, the Genoa City Athletic Club! With so many accolades, Daytime Emmys, and more, Y&R continues to be the soap’s biggest juggernaut, while the Bell family continues to impress as the first family of daytime drama.
Yesterday the show actually filmed the 11,000 episode with Lauralee Bell tweeting, “Home from Venice to tape show 11,000 at Y&R today! Congrats to all for this remarkable episode number.“ She added today, “What a treat this was to film!”, when talking about her upcoming on-air scenes with her mom.
