Tricia Cast returns;
Emmy winner Tricia Cast (Nina) is reprising her iconic role on The Young and The Restless later this spring or early summer, report sources. The best part? This time around, Cast’s comeback is not a cameo.
Jess Walton refuses pay cut
Soapoperadigest.com reported Friday that Y&R sent out a casting notice to replace Emmy winner Jess Walton (Jill) due to illness. TVGuide.ca has since learned Walton leaving due to sickness is not true. “Y&R asked Jess to take a pay cut, and she walked off the set. She had been feeling ill, but that’s not the reason she bolted.” So, is Walton’s walkout a contract ploy? “Nope,” continues the insider. “She’s serious. Jess may be the first daytime actor to actually stand up to these pay cuts everyone is being forced to take.” Let’s see how Walton’s historic decision will affect the industry… Sorry, Brenda Dickson (ex-Jill) fans, Y&R is looking for a “big name” to fill in Jill’s pumps. More in Friday’s Suds Report.

Tricia's returning could be cool.
Actors shouldn't be glad to have a job in these economic times, especially considering all soaps are having financial difficulties.
