A second generation soap actress is joining The Young and the Restless. According to TV Insider, Soap legend A Martinez's daughter, Devon Martinez, has landed her first daytime role on The Young and the Restless.
Devon will portray Shawn Taylor, a pregnant woman searching for adoptive parents for her baby. Watch for Shawn to interact with Sage (Kelly Sullivan) and Nick (Joshua Morrow). Check out an excerpt from TV Insider's scoop below.
So what’s Shawn’s story? And how high are her standards? Because Sage and Nick are kind of a mess.
Shawn is in her third trimester and feels strongly that she’s not ready to raise a baby on her own, so she’s come to town to put out feelers. She’s considering Nick and Sage but she’s talking to other couples, as well, and still trying to make up her mind. She’s, like, “Who are these people? What is this town like? How is everyone connected?” It’s been fun studying the back stories. Everyone, including Nick and Sage, has been through so much! But, despite their circumstances, what are their core values? It’s been fascinating to play a woman in Shawn’s position and getting to the heart of what really matters where you’re looking to give up your child.
