Famous people who used to be on Y&R

Postby Applepiemommy » Mon Nov 05, 2007 3:29 pm

The "Give it up" post reminded me of the fact that quite a few famous actors got their start on soaps. I remember Meg Ryan from when she used to be on As The World Turns. And Shemar Moore started on Y&R.

Who else used to be on Y&R and ended up famous?

Holy cow. I had no idea Tom Selleck was on Y&R. Here is what I found on the Internet.

Tom Selleck starred on The Young and the Restless very early on in the show's history. The soap debuted in 1973. Selleck was on for about a year, 1974 to 1975, and then reprised the role again in 2005 for a short time.

The character he played was Jed Andrews.

And now Tom Selleck is on Las Vegas. He's the new owner of the casino. It's so nice to see him back on tv - what a cutie!

The actress who plays Gabby on Deparate Housewives was the former Isabella (Paul's nutty wife). And the actor who played Rex Sterling was co- screen-writer of the Acadamy Award winning movie with Robert DiNero, "The Deer Hunter". Victoria Rowell played a major role for several seasons on "Diagnosis Murder". I don't know about the other soaps, because Y&R is the only one I watch. I suppose everyone knows that the actress who plays Esther, is currently an Airline Attendent in between her roles on Y&R.
