On February 3rd Kristoff St. John died of a broken heart, and today The Young and the Restless dealt with his passing. The beloved character passed away in his sleep while his loved ones were at a party.

When Winters did not show up, his son Devon (Byron James) went to check on him. That is when Devon learned the sad truth. The devastated son then went back to the party and told his sister Lily (Christel Khalil) about their dad. As she broke down, everyone else learned about his death.

Tomorrow and throughout the rest of the week, they will continue to deal with his passing including a tear-inducing funeral. Then on Monday, his past and current castmates will remember him in a tribute episode.

Y&R celebrates Nikki Newman’s 40th anniversary on Wednesday!
February 19th, 2019 under TV Soaps. [ Comments: none ]

On February 20 1979, The Young and the Restless introduced us to Nikki Newman, and this Wednesday on CBS she will get a whole episode dedicated just to her.

Melody Thomas Scott has to say this about playing the same role for 4 decades, “I would never have guessed when I first accepted the role of ‘Nikki Newman’ in 1979 that I would be fortunate enough to be playing her 40 years later. I treasure the gifts and memories it has given me immensely. I feel most fortunate to have enjoyed every minute of these 40 years.”

How many people can say they held the same job for 40 years, but there are two people on the daytime drama who can say that, Scott and Doug Davidson. Pretty impressive, as long as you don’t consider all they have been through since the late ’70s. How many sex scenes, drinks, children aging unnaturally, cast changes, different writers, marriages, divorces, being let go and so on. They have lived lifetimes in just one.

In case you wondering, there are two actors, who are currently on soaps, that have been on their longer shows than them. Suzanne Rogers has been on Days of our Lives for 44 years and Leslie Charleson joined General Hospital in 1977.

BTW Y&R turns 46 next month.
