Forums The Young and the Restless YR – Legacy Characters On Screen birth year Viewing 2 posts - 1 through 2 (of 2 total) Author Posts March 7, 2010 at 4:20 am #111142 Smitty 878 Posts A lot of talk has been going on today about the SORASing of the role Abby Carlton so I thought it would be fun to check out some of the legacy characters and when they were born on screen. Heather Stevens — born on screen in 1979 Victoria Newman – born on screen in July 1983 Nick Newman – born on screen in December 1988 Chance Chancellor – born on screen in 1988 Chloe Mitchell Abbot (Kate Valentine) – born on screen in 1990 Colleen Carlton -born on screen in 1992 Nate Hastings Jr. – born on screen in 1992 Billy Abbott – born on screen in July 1993 Daniel Romalotti – wasn’t born on screen but came to Genoa City as a baby in 1994 Adam Newman – born on screen in April 1995 Lily Winters – born on screen in 1995 Noah Newman – born on screen in 1997 Abby Carlton – born on screen in 2000 Kyle Abbott – born on screen in 2001 So just by taking a look at this you can see that Y&R just like all soaps have played fast and loose with the age of characters. SORAS is apart of soaps. Just these various characters you see none of them are around the correct age except for maybe Heath Stevens. Heck she appears onscreen to be younger than Victoria. Billy is supposed to be younger than Chance but it appears that he is older. I’m not gonna lie..at first when I heard about Marcy Rylan being recast as Abby I thought what in the world? Isn’t this girl in her mid to late 20s, but I thought about it and I’m fine with it. Y&R needs these good young actors. I think it’s a good move. SORASing is about of soaps and I don’t really find it to be that big of a deal. It gives us a good chuckle but at the end of the day we all want to see a good storyline.
