She’s had edgy roles (Blade Runner), dramatic turns (No Way Out) and primetime guest spots on series such as ER. But in her 30-year career, actress Sean Young has yet to grace the daytime screen.

But all that changes in mid-June when fans will see her make her soap debut on CBS’s The Young and the Restless, PEOPLE confirms.

Young begins taping her story arc in May when she will play Meggie, a sultry barmaid who gets tied up in a mystery with business tycoon Victor Newman (Eric Braeden). It’s a reunion for Young and Braeden as the pair filmed the Civil War drama The Man Who Came Back in 2007.

“Getting the chance to work with my dear friend Eric Braeden, one of the true gentlemen in entertainment, was certainly a deciding factor for me,” Young, 50, says, “as well as wanting to get back to work after taking a few years off to raise my kids.”

Although their roles will not overlap, Young comes to Y&R just before the return of David Hasselhoff to the soap that gave him his start 35 years ago, as reported on EW.com.

Young joins James Franco and Julianne Moore this year as film stars taking on soap opera parts. Franco appeared on General Hospital while Moore returned for a stint on As the World Turns

Is this some sort of shot at MTS, since Sean Young replaced her in a web series when MTS had to pull out?

That woman is a mess, or was for quite a long time. Now we just need James Woods to be recast as the new Steve Williams, and watch the sparks fly.

Oh this is getting annoying. They're acting like SY is this big, A-list, high-profile, Oscar-winning stah because she did some hit movies in the 80s and 90s. Sorry, Toots, but if you're making the "Where are they now?" page, then doing soaps is not a step down on the ladder for you.

You know, MyNetworkTV had to replace Sean Young from Wicked Wicked Games(working title "Art of Betrayal"). I think Sean Young was intimidated by the amount of work that went into doing a telenovela. Her replacement was the equally as crazy, but divine Tatum O'Neal. <3

Too much to hope Maria "honors history" by getting Tatum to daytime? I'd be watching this sh*tfest everyday if they had her on. Tatum gave 1000% to Y&R and really took on and embraced the Blythe character.

Sean Young? I'm surprised Maria didn't try to get her friend, Mel Harris, for this role too. :lol:

This is the woman who rolled around in kitty litter dressed as Catwoman right? She's also the one who scared Tim Burton so much he had to hide underneath his desk until security took her away. That's all I know about her.

I say she scares the crap out of Peter Bergman.

Isn't it nice that VR can't be back on the show because she's not stable enough, but Sean Young, she's perfectly sane.

Thank you.

That's her. I think it was The Joan Rivers Show where she went on dressed like Catwoman, she wanted that part BAD.

TATUM O'NEAL is the QUEEN of crazyBITCHtastic-ism! LOVE HER TO DEATH.

That season where she had a big part on Rescue Me was some of my favorite television EVER!

    • I wouldn't put the demise of Miami all at Adriana's door. She wasn't the only one lying -- Joanna marrying Romain reeked of insta-TV wedding. Honestly, I blame production for pushing 'Duelling Weddings' as THE ONLY storyline sustaining 16 episodes. Weddings aren't quite the draw Bravo thinks they are, and it was boring watching hours of these chicks trying on dresses, etc. Season 3 suffered from: -a reduced wider cast; -No Mama Elsa (a major factor IMO); -no lightening-rod Karent; -increased toxicity amongst the women.  By the end, most of the cast clearly couldn't stand each other, or were drumming up a bunch of insta-fights (Lisa vs Joanna, Marysol's never-ending hounding of Lea). Lea was ready to peace out of the franchise altogether before it even ended. Reunion was a disaster because the rest of the cast were desperate to make S4 happen and just threw anything at the wall to see what stuck. Adriana, whatever you may think about her, was highly dramatic and a big pot-stirrer. I think she deserves a spot more than Larsa, but we will see how the Miami reboot shakes out. I do worry that we haven't seen any trailer or promo for this, unlike RHUGT which was trailed over a month in advance.
    • It helps that Ben doesn't have a long history with John (they've barely interacted) + it plays into the stroke John had which led to him having outbursts. So it's not completely out of the realm that Ben would believe her and even think it was possible because of above factors.

    • I'm pretty sure Chris was present when Kay Chancellor kicked the Fosters out of her house, after Jill, thinking she'd inherited the house from Phillip, moved the whole whip-stitch tribe to Foothill Road.  Wasn't there a big scene where Kay waltzed in and tossed all of them out.    Kay Chancellor and Lorie Brooks had a couple of scenes in 1979.  It was a complicated storyline.  Kay was "dead", having been "killed" in a fire at the sanitarium.  In reality, Kay had survived of course and was staying in the Foster home with Liz.  For several weeks, Liz was the only person who knew Kay was still alive; they had Kay's funeral and everything.  Jill was married to Stuart Brooks and was trying to bilk a divorce settlement from him.  Stuart was anxious to get rid of Jill and was willing to pay a premium to get her butt out of his house.  Brock had revealed to Lorie that, in his opinion, Jill was planning to extort a settlement from Stuart and then run away with Derek Thurston, profiting financially first from Stuart and then secondly from Derek.  Not knowing Derek Thurston, Lorie wasn't sure if this account was valid or not, but she HATED Jill and wanted to be sure Jill got $0 settlement from Mr. Brooks.  Liz babbled to Kay that Stuart was in the process of writing Jill a check for $150,000 to get rid of her .  Kay Chancellor, knowing how Lorie felt about Jill, called Lorie on the phone and said, "Lorie, this is Kay Chancellor.  No, I'm not dead.  Everyone just THINKS I am.  Now, lissssen to me, Lorie. Take the check that your father has written to Jill and rip it to shreds.  Tell Jill to just GO.  She's already made plans to swindle a fortune from my husband.  But I'll stop that as well, and she will get nothing.  Ab-so-lute-ly nothing."  Lorie snatched the check away from Jill and ripped it up.  Jill left Stuart's house with nothing at all, and then Kay herself interrupted Jill's next foray -- a wedding to Derek.  Kay and Lorie were pleased that they'd stymied both of Jill's get-rich-quick schemes.  I don't recall Jennifer Brooks ever interacting with Kay.  It would've been superfluous, as they were the same prototype character -- the vain, wealthy, society matron who depended upon male companionship for validation of their fading beauty.  I expect Bill Bell thought it would be wise to keep them separated, as Kay was simply a more flamboyant version of Jennifer.
