Welcome to another installment of Booked and Busy! This week, we're looking back at some soap veterans from years gone by and seeing what they're up to. First on the list is The Young and the Restless vet Michael Damian, who played rock star Danny Romalotti in the '80s and '90s; since soaps, he's turned his hand to directing a number of holiday flicks, and he is set to helm a new Netflix Christmas movie starring fellow soap alum Lindsay Lohan.

A Passions fan fave is showing up on ABC this week, as Passions star Eva Tamargo, AKA Lopez-Fitzgerald family matriarch Pilar, guests on an episode of the drama Rebel. And The Bold and the Beautiful's Daniel McVicar, who played scheming designer Clarke Garrison for years, is making his presence known on the Italian TV series Sport Crime. So let's get Booked and Busy!
