Even when you are an actress who has appeared in countless primetime television series, when you get the call that you are headed to Genoa City, it’s big news!
Soap opera super fan, actress Yvette Nicole Brown is getting an opportunity to mix it up with some of the biggest characters on The Young and the Restless when she shoots her guest appearance this week on the number one daytime drama series.
The Community and Odd Couple star revealed to TV Line, who broke the news of her upcoming appearance, “The people at CBS found out that I’m a freakin’ fangirl. And they were like, ‘Do you want to go to Genoa City?’ And I’m like, ‘Um, yeah.’ It was probably one of the most exciting calls I have ever received. The only thing that could equal it is if I were to get a call to be on Sesame Street.”
On Y&R, Brown will play a reporter in scenes with Peter Bergman (Jack), Gina Tognoni (Phyllis), and Jason Thompson (Billy). She shared: “All I know is something is happening with Jack, Billy, and Phyllis that’s a big deal, and I’m reporting on it.”
Brown’s episode of Y&R will air on Monday, April 4th. That is three days before The Odd Couple begins its second season on CBS. The sitcom returns Thursday, April 7 at 8:30PMEST/7:3oPMCT, replacing Life in Pieces.
