Former As The World Turns actor Paul Leyden is to join the cast of The Young and the Restless. The actor played Simon Frasier between 2004 and 2010 on As The World Turns and isn’t the first former cast member to join fellow CBS soap The Young and the Restless. It was announced earlier in the year that Emmy winning actress Maura West would join the cast of the soap as Diane Jenkins. West and Leyden worked together closely on ATWT as there characters were romantically involved with each other – fans are now wondering if Y&R producers are hoping to re-create a similar relationship on the soap.
Leyden will play a new character on The Young and the Restless, Blake. However, no more details have been released about the character. Fans are wondering whether the Australian actor’s new character will be connected to the character of Cane (Daniel Goddard) who is also Australian. Leyden begins filming on The Young and the Restless this week and his first scenes will air in early October.
