    Update: Y&R's Bryton McClure

    Monday, January 07 2008


    Bryton as Devon Hamilton Winters (CBS)
    Soaps.com has been contacted by some concerned Y&R fans who are wondering if the actor that plays Devon Winters, Bryton McClure, will be leaving the popular soap to head off to University! Well, we are happy to report that Bryton's father Eric has confirmed that his talented son signed a three-year contract with The Young and the Restless immediately prior to his 2007 Emmy win, and his future in daytime looks bright!

    The Young and the Restless is very lucky to have landed Bryton for the role of Devon. Although he is an accomplished actor, appearing from a young age on the series, "Family Matters", Bryton is also a talented musician who has had the opportunity to sing onstage twice with Michael Jackson, and also to perform in duets with musical greats such as LeAnn Rimes!

    Bryton also has a fondness for charity work, in fact, he even has his own charity which he established in 1996 called "RADD Kids", for youth safety. He has been honored for his contributions in this field, including the Michael Landon Award for charitable contributions through youth in entertainment, just as he has been in acting and music.

    Many fans would love to see Devon figure more prominently in story line. Currently the character is secretly harboring feelings for his 'sister' Lily, and masterminding a plan to keep her apart from her love interest, Cane. His partner in crime most recently is friend Roxanne (Tatyana Ali), so who knows, maybe something will develop between these two Genoa City students! Whatever Devon's story turns out to be on Y&R, one thing is certain, his fans can rest easy knowing he has a long-term contract and plans on sticking around!

    Tatyana Ali is on the show? That's great! Yeah they will make a couple. Sounds alot like how Drew and Neil hooked up.

    I was looking forward to his departure since the show has done absolutely nothing with him except his incestous thoughts.. don't even get me started on that one. Unless they are going to develop the relationship w. Roxanne & him, I don't see any point in him staying.

    i thought he had asked to be released from his contract?

    Glad that Bryton McClure, will be staying with Y&R!
    Tatyana Ali and him look great together, when playing Roxanne and Devon.
    Sure Devon may love his sister Lily, but he'd rather keep her from Cane and honor Neil's wishes at the same. Tatyana's id as Roxanne may just have some of Drucilla's whitty attitude inside of her, only time will tell!

    Good news. Let's hope they do something with his character now that they have him for a while so he can get another emmy nom and win!

    Was I imagining, or does Cane have a "shady" past? If I remember correctly, he was on the phone with "someone" and that's the last we've heard. The writers better hurry up and expand on that story before viewers forget? Does anyone else remember that scene?

    Hope the writers aren't thinking about setting Devon and Lilly up. It just seems too incestuous!
    It's too late for viewers to accept them as "lovers."

    Isn't Bryton the child actor who portrayed a very young child on Bill Cosby show about 15-20 or so years ago? thankx.

    I'm so thrilled Bryton will be staying on the show! While if he had decided to leave and continue his education, I would be very happy for him. But I think he really is a very talented young man and the show would be more than foolish to let this Day Time Emmy winner go! All the writers need to do now is give him (and Roxanne?) a really juicy storyline - perhaps while working at NE he can spy on that David Chow clown and see what he's really up to. It would make sense given the Winters' family should still harbour anger, resentment and distrust of this man who set up Dru for the murder of Carmen and drove her "nuts". I would love to see Devon featured more prominently on the show. Come on writers - get cracking!
