It’s been a while since we’ve seen Gloria Bardwell in Genoa City, but there’s reason to believe Judith Chapman could be back in the CBS studios taping scenes. Christian LeBlanc, who plays Chapman’s onscreen son Michael Baldwin, recently did an interview with GlobalTV and when asked who he most liked working with on Young and the Restless, he stated, “My favorite is to be in one of these groupings with Michelle (Stafford) or Greg (Rikaart), and today I worked with Kevin, Chloe and Gloria.” Judith Chapman commented on her Young and Restless status back in January and last appeared in October 2018. She played Diana Colville on Days of our Lives from January to March of this year. Stay tuned as will update readers with her Y&R return date if and when it’s released or details if the role has been recast.

Jon Briddell Young and Restless

Actor Jon Briddell has been cast on The Young and the Restless in the role of Eric Vanderway. readers will recall that another character on the canvas shares the same last name – Theo Vanderway (Tyler Johnson) – so presumably Eric is his father, though Theo claimed his father had died, so the character could appear in a flashback scene. Briddell, whose credits include American Heiress, Doom Patrol, Nancy Drew and the Hidden Staircase, and who played a reporter on All My Children, will be seen on Young and Restless on Thursday November 7.
