INTERVIEW: Lyndsy Fonseca Talks Kick Ass 2, Nikita and Memories of Young and Restless’ Jeanne Cooper

 Former The Young and the Restless star Lyndsy Fonseca (ex-Colleen) has kept busy since leaving the fictional town of Genoa City on the CBS Daytime soap. In addition to gearing up for the airing of the fourth and final season of Nikita this fall on The CW, Fonseca is also logging a lot of time on the big screen.

Daytime Confidential recently caught up with the talented and beautiful actress, who was at Comic-Con to promote her new superhero flick  Kick Ass 2. While staying so busy in primetime and film, does Fonseca still have time to keep up with the goings-on at Y&R?

OUSTED Mac, Clementine Ford on Young and Restless Gig: “It Was So Much Harder Than I Ever Could Have Imagined”

One of the most boring pairings in The Young and the Restless history, Mac (Clementine Ford) and JT (Thad Luckinbill) will be trucking it out of Genoa City on Nov. 5. While I'm sad to see Luckinbill go, since JT was once GC's hottest younger lead, I can't say I'll much miss Ford's monotone deliveries as Mac.  In this week's CBS Soaps in Depth, the actress confirms what most viewers suspected all along from watching her on our screens— the role of Kay Chancellor's (Jeanne Cooper) granddaughter proved difficult for Ford.

"I feel so lucky that I got to work with Billy [Miller, Billy], Thad and Amelia. Working with [them] stepped up my game." Still, Ford says that her year and a half in soaps was challenging. "It was so much harder than I ever could have imagined."
