Is Y&R's Austin Dead Or Not?

MatthewAtkinsonGal.jpg

For a dead guy, THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS' Austin sure seems to be getting around! Which always begs the question: Is the hunk really dead? Or, given the many lookalikes and twins (Caleb/Cane, Mariah/Cassie, Jeffrey/William) that have sauntered through Genoa City, could fans soon be getting a double dose of Austin with a doppleganger?

"I don't know what's going to happen," admits his portrayer, Matthew Atkinson. "From Day One, Austin has been a very mysterious character, and we haven't figured out much about him. There's a lot of questions we could ask, but no answers just yet! I can't give anything specifically away, I would say you will learn a lot about Austin in the coming weeks."

Right now, viewers are learning a lot in flashbacks, including the stunning revelation that Austin and Abby were having a hot and heavy affair! "When I first came on the show, Melissa [Ordway, Abby] and I talked about how her character is related to everyone, so we thought at some point we were going to have a relationship!" laughs the actor. "I guess that kind of ended up happening! I enjoy working with her; she's such a sweetheart!

"Keep watching," Atkinson adds with a grin. "This is not a predictable storyline at all!"

THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS Fan Club has announced that the 2015 Fan Club Event will be held the evening of Saturday, August 15, at the Sheraton Universal Hotel in Universal City, CA. You must be a current Y&R Fan Club member in order to purchase tickets to attend, but there's still time to join because reservation packets will not be mailed out to members until Sunday, March 15. (Fan Club members will also be able to purchase one additional ticket for a non-member.) You can find an application to join the Y&R Fan Club by clicking here.

The Sheraton Universal will be offering a special rate on hotel rooms, and a block of rooms has been set aside.

"That's a big deal," he shares with Soaps In Depth. "It will be the show's Manhattan debut. That's exciting to me, to be doing some of my own work on a stage in the big city where I started to do this theater stuff!"

B&B Alum Joins Web Soap WINTERTHORNE!

LindaGray.jpg

How do you make a series centered on a candy empire even tastier? By adding DALLAS star Linda Gray (ex-Priscilla, THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL) to the mix!

When WINTERTHORNE, the new Web series from DEVANITY creator Michael Caruso, begins production next month, Gray -- best known as DALLAS' liquor-lovin' Sue Ellen Ewing -- will step into the role of matriarch Joanna Winterthorne.

"Linda has a warmth and strength that embodies Joanna," says Caruso, adding that he "wrote this part specifically for her. It's always an honor when you write for a specific actor and they see themselves in the part. This is a moment I will never forget as a producer!"

Martha Madison (ex-Belle, DAYS OF OUR LIVES), who'll play Joanna's daughter, Miranda, admits to being excited about working with the iconic star. "I have so many special memories of watching DALLAS with my own mother," Madison says, "so having Linda play my mother now feels like a full-circle moment!"

WINTERTHORNE promises to flip traditional serialized storytelling on its head by focusing on a female-centric empire in which the men play supporting roles. As well as the aforementioned cast, the sudser also features Gordon Thompson (DYNASTY) and Josh Thrower (90210), with more casting expected to be announced in the coming weeks.

Victoria Rowell Speaks Out!

Rowell.jpg

Soaps In Depth was present this morning when former THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS star Victoria Rowell (ex-Drucilla) held a press conference in New York City to discuss her lawsuit against CBS and Sony.

"This is a profound moment for me," the actress shared, "as an African-American woman who wishes to continue to live the American dream. I've always advocated for myself, and was taught to do so after 18 years in foster care. And I advocate for others, and was taught to do so. So this is not about me. This is about myself and the many, many other African-Americans who have been denied the right to perform in front of and behind the camera. Specifically on Y&R."

In her suit, Rowell claims that CBS and Sony have refused to rehire her in retaliation for her being outspoken about the lack of diversity in the daytime community, and particularly on her former show, the top-rated daytime drama. "It is an incestuous industry, and it has retaliated against me," the actress told In Depth at this morning's conference.

We will have more on Rowell's case in an upcoming issue. In the meantime, we want to hear your thoughts on her claim, so please comment below!

Y&R Star Sues CBS And Sony!

Victoria_Rowell02318.jpg

The daytime drama at THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS isn't just in front of the cameras, it's also behind the scenes! According to Daytime Confidential, Victoria Rowell (ex-Dru) is suing both CBS and Sony! The suit alleges that she was not rehired at Y&R in retaliation for her public and private complaints regarding the lack of diversity at Y&R both in front of and behind the camera.

Rowell claims that she reluctantly exited the soap in 2007 after years of racial discrimination described in the complaint. She also claims that since 2010, she has tried to return to Y&R or sister soap THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL but been denied. We will continue following this story and bring you any updates, but in the meantime, sound off with your own views on this lawsuit in the comments!

UPDATE: A CBS spokesperson tells Soaps In Depth: "We were disappointed to learn that, after leaving the cast of "The Young and the Restless" on her own initiative, Ms. Rowell has attempted to rewrite that history through lawyers' letters and a lawsuit that has no merit. We harbor no ill will toward Ms. Rowell, but we will vigorously defend this case."
