EXCLUSIVE: Young and Restless Grad Davetta Sherwood Dishes Gig on Fuse’s The Hustle

In 2006, she took over one of the most popular, young adult roles in the history of CBS Daytime's No. 1 soap — and more than made it her own. In 2013, however, The Young and the Restless alum Davetta Sherwood (ex-Lily Winters) is going hard on cable.

The talented actress is starring as feisty stylist Cecile on Fuse's first-ever scripted drama, The Hustle. I recently caught up with an all-grown-up Sherwood, who dished about her new gig in creator Prentice Penny's (Happy Endings) dramedy.

Daytime Confidential: Congratulations on being cast as Cecile in Fuse's premiere, scripted drama, The Hustle. What can you tell us about your character?

Davetta Sherwood: I play Kutta’s [one of the rappers from the group] baby mom. She’s a mother and a stylist. And despite not being with Kutta, she is still trying to have her career as well as keep a cordial relationship with her child’s father. She kind of helped him get on and she still cares about him. But now she is dating someone and trying to live her life.

Have you been wondering what former The Young and the Restless star Davetta Sherwood has been up to since exiting the role of Lily Winters? Well have I got news for you! The talented, young actress stars as fashionista Cecile in Fuse's upcoming, premiere scripted drama The Hustle.

From creator Prentice Penny (Happy Endings, Scrubs, Girlfriends), The Hustle is a dramedy in the vein of HBO's Entourage, only instead of the film industry being the backdrop, The Hustle is set in the world of hip-hop. Fuse just picked up the series for six, half-hour episodes. Watch a couple of videos about the series, including one with Sherwood talking about her character, after the jump!
