With Cynthia Watros, departing The Young and the Restless to concentrate on her new series on MTV Finding Carter the sensational , Daytime Emmy winner, Cady McClain will take over the role of Kelly Andrews starting April 24th. She starts taping on March 26th.
It seems they want to keep Kelly on the canvas because TPTB are intent on pairing the character of Kelly with Jack Abbott (Peter Bergman).
On her fitting in on Y&R: "If they picked me at Y&R, they must have thought I could bring something to the character that hopefully the fans will enjoy, and have fun with."
On her being picked to be on Y&R and the honor of being on the #1 show: "The Young and the Restless was the first soap I watched as a child. It was incredibly glamorous. I loved the older actors and the sexy adult situations. It is like the crème’ de la crème’ of shows! Obviously, it’s the top show, and I honestly am trying not to think about it! (Laughs) It’s a big deal!"
It will be a big deal for viewers also, since Cady is a favorite and will fill the role nicely. No one can forget her when she portrayed Rosanna on ATWT or Dixie on AMC.
Best of luck Cady and congratulations to Y&R for landing such a multitalented actress
