Y&R Plans Tribute to the Late Jeanne Cooper
Cast, friends and family will gather next week to celebrate the actress, who portrayed Katherine Chancellor for nearly 40 years — the iconic serial’s longest-running cast member — for a special episode airing Tuesday, May 28.
In addition to fond remembrances, interviews with Cooper from the show’s recent 40th anniversary event and classic clips of her Y&R run will be included.
“Jeanne Cooper was a legend, and we want to give her the tribute she deserves,” CBS Daytime SVP Angelica McDaniel said in a statement. “The cast will honor their longtime friend, family member and co-worker in the greatest way possible, as we celebrate her life and vibrant spirit and share it with the audience who loved her as much as we did.”
