Get ready fans, there’s a new hottie coming to town! Chris Potter will join the cast of
The Young and the Restless on May 9, 2007 as Evan Owen. Without giving anything away, I can tell you he’ll appear as a friend – or foe – from Gloria Abbott’s past!

Born in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, fans may remember Chris from shows such as “Kung Fu: The Legend Continues,” “Silk Stalkings,” “Rush of Fear,” “The Big House,” and “X-Men” to name a few.

Chris is currently married to wife Karen with whom he shares four children Jessie, Quinn, Claire, and Gray.

Soaps.com wants to be the first to welcome Chris to Y&R and congratulate him on his new role! Although it hasn’t been stated as to how long Evan Owen will stay in Genoa City, we can only hope it’ll be for a longtime!
