Who knew there was a never-before-heard of cousin of Genoa City’s Abbott Clan, named Andrew? Well, according to Soap Opera Digest The Young and the Restless is expanding the Abbott clan with this contract role, which means another new character will hit the CBS soap soon, probably initially much to the chagrin of Y&R fans, who have begging the show to focus on the veteran characters.
On the bright side, the Abbott’s get an extended family member! The casting notice that went out says the following: “The show is actively searching for ‘a strong leading man” in his “mid to late 30s’ to play the contract role of the ‘handsome and educated’ Andrew. The character is also described as ‘very driven and ambitious.”
