HomeTVCBSWill Cooper Harris’ Mystery Character Cause Trouble For Lane on Young and Restless? Jillian Bowe September 14, 2012 CBS, Comings & Goings, News, Soap Opera, The Young and The Restless 12 Comments Just who will the "mystery character" Cooper Harris is reportedly playing on The Young and the Restless be connected to? According to setsiders, Harris' character will be interacting with Cane (Daniel Goddard) and Lily (Christel Khalil). What kind of trouble will she cause for the Genoa City lovebirds? 12 Responses Divatude58 September 14, 2012 Oh good grief…I pray to the soap gods that she is not Samantha. Going to stick with my original thought of her being an Abby recast. Cane does work at Jabot so it would make sense. I just rebuke the thought of yet another Atkinson on the show.

Log in to Reply Yoryla September 14, 2012 Why would they bring her on AFTER Genevieve is gone? That doesn’t make any sense. This storyline was about her even more than about Cane. Unless this person is there to escort her out. Log in to Reply angrierblackerman September 14, 2012 There are few happily married couples in soaps…wonder if she is going to be ‘The Other Woman’. Also…does this mean that CK is staying on as Lily? Maybe Harris will be a Lily recast? Log in to Reply scrumptious September 14, 2012 I’m betting this is Samantha Atkinson. They have been building up to her reveal all summer long. It’s obvious Samantha is still alive and the one gaslighting Cane and Genevieve. Also, Cooper Harris is dropping hints on her Twitter that she is indeed Samantha Atkinson. She will probably help send off the Genevieve character. Perhaps the entire Atkinson clan move to Australia at the end of this story, and only Lily returns as a recast. Log in to Reply 24and 1 September 15, 2012 Why would they recast Abby? They had the perfect Abby. I think we will see pretty much all of the 30somethings written out. I think the nuTPTB want a teen set, probably led by Summer, and a 20something set, probably let by Noah, and their parents, lead by Nick. There just isn’t going to be any room for the 30somethings, especially since some of the parents, like Nick, are in their 30s. Is the new character a love interest for Cane? Lily’s new BF has already been cast. They have to break up Lane somehow. But Cane’s a 30something. He seems to live a charmed life.

If this character is brought on to end the storyline with Cane, Lily and Gen, then fine. Otherwise, I don’t care. And NO to a possible Lily recast. Log in to Reply Camp is not a sustainable model September 15, 2012 Cooper Harris was on a web series we aired on my site called Squatters. She is not bad at all. Hell of a lot better than CK in the acting department. She was a day player on ATWT. Check out her reel: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uO0iol8peZA&feature=plcp Log in to Reply Marcelle September 15, 2012 [quote=pferrando]And NO to a possible Lily recast.[/quote] If it’s true that CK wants to be dropped to recurring status, then yes, they need to recast. Lily the character is part of one the long established families of this show. She is the only legacy left of Dru. Fans of Lily the character have wanted better storytelling for her, wanted her more established within the rest of Genoa City carrying her own stories, not continuously supporting story for her 40yo husband. For the moment at least, it appears this new regime wants to do just that with the character, make her stronger, give her an identity outside of her marriage and being a mother. It’s not fair to fans of the character, fans of what the character has the potential to be, that Lily as a character be shortchanged b/c CK wants to go recurring.

Lily will be a major player in the new generation, and the character needs to be up to the challenge. Log in to Reply 24and 1 September 15, 2012 Y&R desperately needs a nuLily.
