It’s been a while since The Young and the Restless fans watched Signy Coleman and Raya Meddine on their TV screens. That’s about to change. On December 23, the actresses will reprise their roles as Victor Newman’s (Eric Braeden) dearly departed wives Hope and Sabrina. According to Entertainment Weekly, Hope and Sabrina will appear as spirits to Victor in a special A Christmas Carol-inspired episode.
She may no longer be donning purple dresses to spook Ashley Abbott (Eileen Davidson) on The Young and the Restless, but Raya Meddine (ex-Sabrina) is still participating in projects where the clothes definitely make the woman. Meddine portrays Aneesha in the most anticipated movie sequel of the year, Sex and the City 2, premiering this Friday, May 28. In the latest issue of CBS Soaps In Depth, on newstands now, the exotic beauty dished about her role, what a "dream" Sarah Jessica Parker and Co. were to work with and the mad respect she has for writer-director Michael Patrick King.
"To say that I was a fan of the TV series is a major understatement. They were all a dream to work with—so humble, kind and down-to-earth. The director, Michael Patrick King, is a genius and a beautiful human being. Shooting overseas with them was a dream come true."
On newsstands former The Young and the Restless, star Raya Meddine speaks out about getting her pink slip during a climatic storyline. In tomorrow's Soap Opera Digest, the Lebanese beauty states, "Yes, I was shocked," about being axed from the number one daytime drama.
Meddine also gives a peak at what's to come on Y&R and, why it was her last stint as a daytime actress.
Even The Great Victor Newman can't prevent this.
