TVLine Items: Y&R Recasts Faith, Elmo's Talk Show Renewed and More

The Young and the Restless Reylynn Caster

The Young and the Restless is keeping the Faith — she’s just going to look a bit different.

Reylynn Caster, whose previous TV credits include American Housewife and the WWE’s The Big Show Show, will make her Y&R debut as Nick and Sharon’s daughter starting Monday, April 12, our sister site Deadline reports. She thus succeeds Alyvia Alyn Lind (sister of Natalie Alyn Lind and Emily Alyn Lind), who has played the role since 2013 but now is moving on to a series-regular role on Syfy’s Chucky series.
