A Tailie is coming to Genoa City!

Cynthia Watros, best known for playing the psychologist Libby on ABC’s Lost, will begin recurring on CBS’ The Young and the Restless in November. She’ll play a character named Kelly who will have a profound influence on the lives of several characters, including Billy, Victoria and Chloe.

Watros started work on the sudser today in Los Angeles.

The actress is well known for playing a survivor on Lost who was in the tail section of the plane. (She also was a love interest for Hurley)But Watros began her career in daytime: from 1994-98, she appeared on The Guiding Light as Annie Dutton Banks, a role that earned her a Daytime Emmy. 

In 1998, she took over the role of Victoria Hudson McKinnon on Another World while star Jensen Buchanan was out on maternity leave.

Would we consider Cynthia as an FOJ as she was hired by JFP back in 1994 for Guiding Light?

I HATE that the article leads with Lost when her Emmy-winning GL work is more relevant! The last thing this show needs is more cast members, but I'm happy we're getting a good one. I just hope she fits in well.

Yep. Something definitely happens to Delia.

Wow, Watros' career really has gone down the tubes since she was fired from Lost.

She is literally one of my Top 5 favorite soap actors of all-time.

 

Will she really find decent screen time on The Steve Burton-Michael Muhney Hour?  Wow, I can't believe she is coming to Young and the RestlessI didn't think she would ever come back to soaps.

 

Man, I hope she amps up the psycho babe element she was so damned good at on Guiding Light.

 Watros back on soaps is music to my ears. Nothing was as good as her courtroom performance on GL in 1998 and other stuff. She was a soap icon dynamo when she was on GL. Her acting was so riveting, it was nutso.

Eeeeeks!!!

 

Now why on earth was "Lost" put in the subject field instead of "GL"? :)

 

LOVE me some Cynthia Watros! Had the pleasure of meeting her 2004, ironically just across the street from Y&R's studios at The Grove shopping area.

 

She actually did a webseries that only lasted like 3 episodes. It was funny. Glad to see her back on TV!!

It's just a matter of time before she is bumped up to lead. How can you not?! 

 

Always hated that Annie never killed Cassie!

EW's a mainstream entertainment site, so they're more likely to mention Lost, as that was a well known primetime show. We're lucky they didn't mention Titus.

Love Watros.

 

But poor thing.

My thoughts exactly. She'll probably be GREAT but she is connected to characters I really couldn'tb care less about.

Honestly, virtually every Lost castmember seemed to get DUIs or under the influence charges out there in Hawaii at one time or another, so I don't take any reports of Watros in particular having an alcohol issue too seriously unless I get more information. But I do have to wonder how her career plunged so far so fast as to have to come back here.

 

It would be one thing if Cynthia Watros was doing a soap out of love for the genre (I would've loved to see her on the new AMC or OLTL) while still keeping up her new career - which is apparently why she generously did the Vicky fill-in gig on AW while she was taking off in nighttime, despite her agents' apprehension - but that career now seems to have disappeared. Time was she was everywhere in primetime, and a very skilled, in-demand actress, particularly in sitcom stuff. What happened?

Great scoop for Y&R, probably for Watros too if her primetime career is indeed on the skids.
