First Impressions: Walter Fauntleroy as Nate Hastings on The Young and the Restless!

It’s still too early to tell whether Walter Fauntleroy (Nate Hastings) has acting chops to match his soap forbearers (Victoria Rowell, Kristoff St. John and Tonya Lee Williams) or at least the charisma to fake it (Shemar Moore), but for now he seems like he could be promising. One thing is for sure: he’s gorgeous, which means Maria Arena Bell got at least one casting decision right! He looks like a descendent in the good-looking Barber-Winters family (unlike some other recent recasts) and it was a neat move on the show’s part to make him a doctor, just like his mother. For those of you unfamiliar with Nate's history, he is Olivia's son with the late Nathan Hastings, Sr. and grew to think of his stepfather Malcolm as a father.
