HomeTVCBSRUMOR REPORT: Is Christel Khalil OUT at The Young and the Restless? Jillian Bowe August 22, 2012 CBS, Comings & Goings, News, Soap Opera, The Young and The Restless, TV 82 Comments Those casting calls Soap Opera Digest first published detailing The Young and the Restless looking to fill two seemingly "new" African-American, 20-something roles caused quit the poop storm. Not only did fans and soap journos start to wonder if the calls were meant to replace actors currently on the Y&R canvas—namely Christel Khalil and Bryton James—but a casting associate from CBS was attached on a strongly-worded email sent to Daytime Confidential about posting the news! Uh, hello. We LINKED the information — which was published by the leading print magazine covering daytime soaps! CBS minions, you might wanna do your homework before you start threatening one of the most popular and influential blogs covering this genre with frivolous lawsuits — especially for publishing CASTING CALLS clearly linked to another publication! What's next, you gonna sue Backstage? And here we've been being so positive about this new regime… Since when does CBS and/or their casting peeps get so ticked about routine casting calls? Maybe the calls really weren't so routine after all? According to ChristelKhalil.net, the popular actress who has played Lily Winters Romalotti Ashby on and off since 2002, is OUT! Said the website: Rumors can be such an ugly thing so here is the answer floating about the internet. Christel Khalil is indeed leaving The Young and the Restless. It is not her decision to leave. An agreement could not be reached during contract negotiations. I have confirmed this information with the source. At this time I do not have an end date for Christel’s last appearance on The Young and the Restless. The casting call posted by Soap Opera Digest yesterday is indeed a casting call for a new “Lily Winters Ashby”. So far Y&R and CBS have been silent on Khalil's status. Keep checking back at DC as this story develops. Additional reporting by Jamey Giddens 82 Responses Vance September 21, 2014 Lily is the most annoying character on the show. Log in to Reply Coffee_Junkie August 22, 2012 I’m starting to think she’s just using a dirty negotiating tactic (by saying she is “out” at Y&R) in order to get what she wants. I hope it’s true, though. Log in to Reply Camp is not a sustainable model August 22, 2012 Let the door hit ya! In my best Paul R. voice smoking a cigar “You’re not even worth it!” Try Disney!

Maybe she really is in contract negotiations, things don’t go well and a casting call was put out. But well … we’ll see.

I Khalil was never believable as Dru’s daughter and I never understood why they fired Davetta Sherwood and brought Khalil back. Khalil cannot act and to me she came off as someone who didn’t want to be associated with their race. Log in to Reply Camp is not a sustainable model August 22, 2012 @everyone: Yes Davetta was the stuff! She was the spitting image of who most fans had envisioned Lily to be. Strong, independent and with some spunk. And if someone thinks having spunk or being a “lily of the Valley” has a race tied to it then maybe you got the race problem. Lily needs spunk! Character! There should have always been a sign that Lily was not Neil’s daughter. Given that both her parents were total opposites of Neil. He should have thought that she had just got that from her mother. So that when the truth was revealed he could easily put together why she had never picked up any of his traits and personality quirks.

I do not see color or ethnic combination as the important matter. In another time or place Tatyana Ali might have made a great Lily and Tatyana’s is Afro Panamanian and her father is Indo-Trinidadian– Blackness cannot be easily defined nor pigeon-holed. @Everyone: In terms of acting the part of Dru’s daughter, while Christel Khalil is a good, competent actress, Davetta Sherwood just really convinced me that her rendition of Lily, IS Dru’s daughter. And the more I see these old YT clips, I’m impressed all over again at how dynamic her scenes were. While in soaps, the vast majority of roles are played best by their originators, this is not always the case. Sharon Case was a recast (do people remember Heidi Mark?), Martha Byrne on ATWT was a recast (although original ‘Lily’ was quite good too). JMO but if I were a casting director and it were between Khalil and Sherwood, Sherwood would have my confidence and the part…hands down. If this is indeed a recast for ‘Lily’, I would offer the role to Sherwood, give her the right of refusal. Log in to Reply SoapSnob August 22, 2012 As the daughter of Dru AND Neil, Lily’s behaviors and mannerisms ring true. Not every child behaves/has mannerisms exactly like their parents. And it irks me when people suggest Lily is “not Black enough” or that she does not “behave Black enough” or she is not like her mother. Does she have to be like Dru? Is Victoria just like Nikki/Victor? Is Ashley just like Dina/John? No, but there are shadings there; just like there are shadings of Dru AND Neil in Lily. Why can’t Lily be like her Aunt Olivia? Or why can’t Lily just be Lily instead of a stereotype of a Black woman? I think the real issue is with Christel Khalil as an actress/person. And viewers should be able to delineate between character and actor. By the way, this post is from someone who is neither here nor there about Lily, Cane or Lily and Cane as a couple. I think both those characters have been given horrible, contrived, convoluted material in the past several years. However, I am looking forward to seeing what the new regime has in store for these characters. It can’t get any worse for them. Log in to Reply tashikins August 22, 2012 Actually I think CK is a better actress than DS although DS is cute. The character of Lily is not Dru, she is sweety and soft. She had a diffeent upbringing, not as tough as Dru’s. I do not have a problem with CK’S acting, she portrays Lily as sophisticated and strong. Just as Olivia was not Dru so Lily is not Dru. We do not want to see all the actresses of color portrayed in the same way–that is stereotyping. I loved Dru and I think CK does the role of Lily justice. I also love her and Cane. Cane is HOT(so is Danny). Log in to Reply Yoryla August 22, 2012 Nelson Branco is now saying it’s true.

Log in to Reply Camp is not a sustainable model August 22, 2012 @SoapSnob: Actullay Victoria is like Victor. At least the original Victoria was. And Nick was supposed to be like his mother Nikki. Hence the fact that both of the first letters of their firsts names match their parents. That was what Bill Bell had envisioned for the characters. Heather tom’s Victoria was smart and confident business woman. She was much better than her brother Nick. But because Nick was a boy Victor favored him over her. Everybody knows that who watched Y&R when Victoria was first cast as an adult and we watched the storylines play out. Nick is like Nikki. He is emotional and lacks the ruthless business nature that Victor has. This was how it was supposed to be. It is the direct reasons why fans have had a problem with Amelia’s weak portrayal of Victoria. Here is Heather Tom: http://youtu.be/_rL5znQMdG0 That is Victoria. Now when it comes to Lily. If you are going to make her different then you have write that in the story. Olivia and Dru’s relationship as siblings was fully explored to explain why Dru ran away and got in the with wrong crowd and Olivia was the good girl who went to medical school. Olivia would also release or show another side to her when a man cheated on her. Tonya as Olivia is every bit my mother in real life. So she and CK are not in the same lane. Not close at all. http://youtu.be/jUX9eRqNIAA Davetta had chemsitry with Victoria Rowell, Kristoff Saint John, Shemar Moore and Tonya Lee Williams. She convinced people that she WAS apart of the family. Now CK never was convincing. But then her acting was 1 note at best. Heck even Bryton appeared to be a blood relative. It is about understanding the way a family relates to one another. How we all interact. CK stuck out like a sore thumb. She was just was not right for THIS ROLE. Now if she had come on as some character not related, she’d still be 1 note. But that would have been better. Take a look at how ATWT did when they cast the Adult Bonnie or AMC when they brought on Danalle Frye or Passions casting of Simone and Whitney! The casting directors understood and got it right. Tonya Lee Williams is a world class actress. Don’t ever put her CK name in the same sentence! Lord, bring me my hat!

This scene was so realistic. MAB could never write this scene, not without a bunch of fake slang and directions for over-the-top eye and neck rolling.

Log in to Reply Cyberologist August 23, 2012 I liked Daveeta Sherwood better in the role. Log in to Reply pferrando August 23, 2012 Christel created the role, so I’m not quite sure what some people are referring to as her needing spunk and edge. That’s not the character. And she had tons of chemistry with all her costars. Extremely likeable to watch. Not taking anything away from Daveeta, but a recast is a recast. Her scenes with Daniel were awkward. Log in to Reply blake3b August 23, 2012 Not upset about this. I agree maybe this means we can have Victoria Rowell back as Drucilla now since CK was one of the people who didn’t want VR back on Y&R. Log in to Reply Camp is not a sustainable model August 23, 2012 @pferrando: She did not create the role, she originated it. She was the original actress in the role. The first one to play it. Erika Slezak was the 3th actress to play Vicki on OLTL before they got it right. Robin Strasser was the 3rd actress to Dorian Lord on OLTL before they got it right. Lauren Koslow was not the original Kate on Days. Melody Thomas Scott was a recast of Nikki on Y&R. Jess Walton was a recast of Jill on Y&R who was played by the insanely popular Brenda Dickerson. Terry Lester originated the role of Jack on Y&R now played by Peter Bergman. Patsy Rahn was the original Monica Quartermaine on GH before Leslie Charslton took over. And these are just a few in a long list of recast who either took the role and gave it what it was missing or their take on the character became equally as popular or even better than the original. Now as for her needing spunk and and edge? Soaps have often recast characters saying that they were taking the character in a different direction. They also discover the limitations of an actor or actress to bring layers and depth to a character. Let me show you some examples of what we mean when we say spunk. Eve, Passions: http://youtu.be/7Fmc0V_h4uU Bonnie, ATWT: http://youtu.be/gjamf0SRFzQ Lexie, Days: http://youtu.be/T7zQwTIUyog Now spunk is defined as “Courage and determination.” And for edge in acting it means bringing a special quality that makes your character pop off the screen. You get that edge from Michelle Stafford, Sharon Case, Jeanne Cooper, Elizabeth Hendrickson, Jess Walton and the former star Victoria Rowell. All of these actresses and the ones in the clips I showed above brought something to their portrayals that made people want to watch them and see where the story goes. Log in to Reply JasamForever August 23, 2012 I really hope that CK stays at Y&R. I think she is a pretty decent actress and when I watched Y&R, I did like Cane and Lilly. Log in to Reply 1titanman August 23, 2012 Awesome Sauce! This is the best news I’ve heard all day & week about Y&R. Not a fan of Cristal Champagne.. I agree Davetta Sherwood was a better Lily. Christel was good as young Lily, but when she left and Davetta came in; Lily was sexy, beautiful, smart, she just had it going on! When Christel came back, I have always hated the character of Lily. She a valley girl, and just boring! I hope Cain goes away too! That couple bores me to tears! Log in to Reply pferrando August 23, 2012 david46208…Now,now,now… Don’t be that way…you know EXACTLY what I mean. I’ve loved her since the first day I watched her walk onto my screen to play the role that she auditioned for and snatched up. How’s that? Better? She is Lily, and always will be since she originated, excelled at, and won an Emmy at playing Lily. Let’s examine your other fine points… Brenda and Jill BOTH are fine Jills. Loved Brenda until her campy end. Terry and Peter, both great as well. Terry has more of your edge. Lauren was better on Y and R… OLTL is cancelled. Eve and Bonnie also are on shows that were cancelled. I’ll stick with my originators, who’ve been in the role any day over any newbie. That’s one of the reasons Y and R is still on the air. Consistency. Let’s hope JFP tried to honor Bill’s legacy. Log in to Reply Camp is not a sustainable model August 23, 2012 @pferrando: When Bill Bell was there Victoria Rowell was like a daughter to him. She helped with casting and storylines. He often wrote her scripts. If he had been around when Lily was being cast as a teenager. Vicky would have had say in who played the role. He trusted her judgement. CK would not have been picked. Log in to Reply pferrando August 23, 2012 If Bill didn’t pick her, who did? Everyone there at the time, I trust. Kay, Jack, Ed Scott and Vic too. Since then I trust no one. And that includes Josh and Jill UNTIL they prove they can handle this show. Sounds like both Vic and CL hated each other on the set. But all that Mom and daughter chemistry they oozed on the screen…. Hmmmm…both must be great actresses. Log in to Reply Camp is not a sustainable model August 23, 2012 @pferrando: They didn’t have any mother/daughter chemistry. It was just odd. And by then Bill Bell was too out of it to work for the show or have anything to do with it. So that was the show’s choice to pick her. Victoria Rowell just made the best of a bad situation. Vicky advocated on the behalf of the black people. So she advocated for Lily to have a black love interest because she knew the majority black audience of Y&R would want to see that. According to Viki CK went into the EP’s office and said she wanted to be paired with white men only. And that is why we have never seen her paired with a black man.

She is not popular on this blog but I have to assume that she garners great admiration from fans who have never heard of blogs such as these.

It really sounds like she also wants to do outside projects, which I don’t blame her for. She is still young, and her friends Tammin Sursok are doing well on ABC Family and Lyndsay Fonseca is on Nikita. I could see CK guest-starring on shows like that. I think she would actually fit with the ABC Family audience. I do still hope it works out for her on Y&R. I wonder if DG is getting nervous himself? Log in to Reply Camp is not a sustainable model August 23, 2012 Drew Tyler Bell won an Emmy. It means shit today. And 10 years of what she has been producing is worthy of recurring status. Day player if you want to keep it real. Victoria Rowell earned to right (back in the day) to play hardball at the table. She was producing something that made people pay attention. Ten years is not worth anything if you ain’t producing the goods. That is just a waste of time and money.
