The soap series “The Young and the Restless” seems to have undergone certain changes in its cast members. One actress has been replaced while another is to act in another serial as an alcoholic librarian.
An actress who already plays the part of a dipsomaniac on “The Young and the Restless” has chosen a similar role as a booze-addicted librarian on “The Crazy Ones”. The slightly aged Marilyn Monroe-like goddess, Melody Thomas Scott has switched characters that though similar have a twist added to their situation.
While in “The Young and the Restless” she was shown convalescing from a bout of alcoholic frenzy, in the other serial she will be a book-lending addict whose other interest is liquor. And we all know that while candy is dandy, liquor is quicker! Robin Williams of Good Will Hunting fame and Sarah Michelle Gellar from the Buffy Series will be her costars.
Melody Thomas Scott has spoken of how she was thought of as a little juvenile for the role but later on when the chemistry between her and Robin Williams started to sizzle everything just fell into place.
The persona of a librarian with an addictive personality who keeps taking to the bottle is what she already does so well in “The Young and the Restless”. Another pickled role she played on the show “My Name is Earl” provided background experience in drunken politics so she was suitable for this role playing job.
Furthermore, the chance to interact with both Robin Williams and Sarah Michelle Gellar is a great opportunity for the charming and charismatic actress. She can now rub shoulders with these talented personalities, an experience she describes as “surreal”. Meanwhile, Cady McClain will be taking over the reins from Cynthia Watros in “The Young and the Restless”. She is leaving her previous gig in “Finding Carter” which is about a funky mom who had kidnapped her only son.
When he discovers this all hell breaks lose as he tries to get in touch with his real biological parents. The radical changes in the cast of “The Young and the Restless” will undoubtedly have a profound effect on the soap opera in terms of visual flavor and captivation capability.
