Grateful actress.

Kate Linder (“Young and the Restless”) has been portraying Esther Valentine since April 1982. She’s every bit as sweet in person as Esther has been written all these years. The lovely Kate stopped by to chat with Lori Wilson on the red carpet at the 38th Annual Daytime Emmys. She simply wanted to let us know, “You’re so very important…”

Aw shucks Kate, thanks. We appreciate this and frankly, it’s always been our pleasure to support the genre.
