HomeTVGeneral HospitalUPDATE: GH’s Drew Garrett NOT Going to Y&R Jillian Bowe July 22, 2010 17 Comments Sorry kids. Looks like former General Hospital star Drew Garrett (ex-Michael, #2) won’t be appearing on The Young and the Restless. The actor will not be taking on the role of Noah Newman, previously played by Kevin G. Schmidt. Garrett’s former co-star Lexi Ainsworth (Kristina) put to rest the rumor running rampant by tweeting, Latest: RT: tweet birds.Drew Garett is "not" heading to Y&R to replace former Noah Newman. I spoke to him 2nite. 17 Responses Smitty July 22, 2010 SIGH Log in to Reply troymcclure July 22, 2010 I love Drew but I’m happy that he is not going to be Noah on Y&R. DG is too talented to play such a dead end dull character. Log in to Reply cheryl85 July 22, 2010 i agree, troy. i can’t be too mad at the news. DG is a young talent, I would love to see him more in movies and primetime. Log in to Reply AlistairCrane July 22, 2010 He’s too young. Noah is older than Abby, so they need an actor who can play around 24-25. Log in to Reply Ryan-Scott July 22, 2010 Didn’t some GH actors tweet this the other day that it is true? Don’t fake the funk kiddies… Log in to Reply yojoromo4469 July 23, 2010 Do you mean the character Noah is older than the character Abby or the actors that play them? Log in to Reply alstonboy4315 July 23, 2010 I suspected that he was too young to play NuNoah, but they STILL could have brought him on as one of Tucker McCall’s stray kids. I am sure he has a few of those waiting to come out of the woodwork!!!! Log in to Reply wiggum July 23, 2010 the tweet just says he’s not playing Noah, it said nothing about him not going to Y&R, maybe he can still play Kyle… Log in to Reply met July 23, 2010 ok, because I was wondering how the hell MAB would explain how Abby is older than Noah. What a snafu that would have been.

So if Abby’s “21″, Noah would have to be around 24-25, but that ages Sharon and Nick way too much. I don’t think we will see Noah again until Sharon Case and Josh Morrow can convincingly play parents of a 25 year-old. Log in to Reply Carol2 July 23, 2010 Not that it stops Y&R but Kyle was only about 10 years old a few months ago. They probably won’t age Kyle because then Jack wouldn’t have stories where he whines about having another child. I’d rather they try to find stories for the other people they stunt cast. Log in to Reply kcgeban July 23, 2010 Why would anyone think that the fact of Abby’s being born later is a possible factor in Mrs. Bell’s choice for an actor to play Noah? Nothing remotely similar affected her choices in casting Abby herself, Heather, or Malcolm. Log in to Reply DaytimeFan0001 July 23, 2010 Is it just me, or is this kid overrated? I mean I have respect for the actor- but is he that phenomenal that is better than Daytime? Log in to Reply sunchild79 July 23, 2010 Its not sooo much that he is beyond phemomneal, but for daytime he is one of the best younger actors who has been is such a demanding role in a long time.He did more than well up against his co-stars heck they were quite afew scenes where he actually outshown MB.The fans loved him as MCIII and are upset how GH got rid of him for Chad. While Chad is not that bad of an actor but he does not have the spark that Drew does.Plus Drew got screwed out of the Emmy as well as SCliffton did.And alot of us fans know he has alot of raw talent to work with and get more expierence.And he was up for a starring role but his best friend got it just recently, he does show alot of promise.Can’t wait to see him act again. Log in to Reply alstonboy4315 July 23, 2010 Yeah, I agree with Sunchild…..Drew is one of the best actors to hit daytime in the past few years, and he has more range and talent than some of the “lifers” who have been working in daytime for 10+ years. Please don’t make me start naming names— I’m trying to be nice today !! Heck, he WAS the best actor under 25 in 2009!! Bar none. He got robbed of his job and his Emmy. I blame both kicks in the teeth on nepotism and backstage agendas!!! I don’t know why this medium keeps kicking this kid in the balls. It’s incomprehensible!!!! Log in to Reply sunchild79 July 23, 2010 Thanks ABoy-Maybe JFP was in cougar mood and couldn’t get none-he is looking pretty hawt lately even has scruff going on :).I can’t figure it out ethier wonder if he got blackballed like the lady that plays Dorin on OLTL she said in an interview she was told by ABC people (yrs ago )something about being blackballed I think its when JFP was the producer of the show. I found the article on google when reading about JFPhelps. Log in to Reply alstonboy4315 July 23, 2010 Sunchild, JFP does strike me as a predatory old thang!!! LOL!! It’s funny how these producers get actors blacklisted but nobody can ever manage to get THEM blacklisted, allowing them to spread their poisonous “idea” around the genre like wildfire!! This madness must end!!! Log in to Reply Leave a Reply Cancel Reply You must be logged in to post a comment.
