THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS is aging the characters of Fenmore and Summer. The show has now cast two actors to play the roles, according to Soaps in Depth.
Lindsay Bushman will make her debut as Phyllis and Nick's daughter on Friday, June 8, followed by Max Ehrich, playing Lauren and Michael's son, on Monday, June 11.
"I’ve already taped my first scenes with him and he’s adorable," actress Tracey E. Bregman said in a recent interview. "They just aged him to sixteen. I turned to Christian [LeBlanc] and said, 'Boy, those last six years really packed a wallop!'"
Will Fen have issues with his parents the way other aged kids on the show have of late?
"He was adorable when we worked together and didn’t seem to have any mommy issues!" Bregman shared. "Hopefully that’s coming! I think that having Fen back will add a lot to the mix!"
Ehrich made his film debut starring in One Easy Job in 2004, then had a supporting role as principal dancer in High School Musical 3: Senior Year. Ehrich's television roles include UGLY BETTY, iCARLY and PARENTHOOD. He also is in a band and has a music video on the way.
Bushman played Young Kate Howard on GENERAL HOSPITAL as well as roles on THE FINDER and BIG TIME RUSH. Her film credits include Hello Herman and Cats Dancing on Jupiter.
