The Young and the Restless’ Noah Newman will look a little lot different when he returns to Genoa City this fall: The CBS soap has recast the role of Nick and Sharon’s son with Rory Gibson, who you may recognize from the TV movies A Night to Regret and Twisted Twin or the movie-movies Grace and Severed Road.

Though the character is a prominent member of one of Young & Restless’ foremost families, as Robert Adamson’s run in the part neared its conclusion, Noah inched farther and farther onto the backburner until finally, he fell off the stove altogether. Adamson, who has a daughter with Bold & Beautiful alum Linsey Godfrey (ex-Caroline), was the third non-child actor to play Mariah’s little brother. He was preceded by Kevin Schmidt, who was replaced by Luke Kleintank (The Man in the High Castle), who was then replaced by the guy he replaced before Adamson stepped in in 2012.

In Noah’s last storyline on Young & Restless, he was chagrined to discover that he’d lost girlfriend Tessa to Mariah. Considering that the poor fella has never really had what you’d call a successful relationship, let’s hope he fares better this time around.
