Hartley Sawyer Leaving THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS

Hartley Sawyer, who replaced Blake Hood as Kyle Abbott on THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS in March, has been let go. The news was first reported by Daytime Confidential.

According to a Y&R spokesperson, "Hartley is wrapping up but will be airing for several weeks into the new year."

In the current Y&R story, Kyle, the son of Jack and the late Diane Jenkins, recently went to work for Victor Newman to serve as a spy for Jack.

No reason for Sawyer's exit has been released.

  2. He finally cut his hair and they fired him? I guess this means the Kyle working for Victor story is going nowhere.

  4. WHO IS IN CHARGE AT YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS? FIRE THIS LADY. SHE HASN'T WORKED AROUND THE PIRATE LIVES OF THESE ACTORS AND IS AN ALL OR NOTHING MONSTER. FIRST, NOT RECASTING PHILLIS, FIRING BILLY CAUSE HE ASKED FOR SOME TIME OFF, THEN ADAM ( NOT HIM-I LOVE HIM), AND SEVERAL OTHER HAVE BEEN LET GO. I HAVE BEEN WATCHING FOR OVER 25 YEARS FAITHFULLY. BRING KYLE BACK, TRACY FOR GOOD, SKIPPER TOO AND FIRE THIS CRAZY LADY IN CHARGE.

    1. I WAS VERY HAPPY THAT BILLY MILLER WAS PLAYING BILLY ABBOTT. HE'S A TERRIFIC ACTOR & I'M SORRY TO SEE HIM GO. DAVID TOM WAS OKAY BUT I PREFER BILLY MILLER TO HIM ANY DAY.

I was sad when Phyllis left but now with these great actors off the show, there is no incentive left! DUMB MOVE for whoever is in charge! REALLY DUMB! I have watched for 30 years! I am done! I will quit as soon as Adam is off the screen :(

    1. I agree -- with Adam gone, what's the point? They're letting the most compelling people go... Phyllis, Adam, Billy. Really dumb, but their future ratings will reflect the inept leadership.

    2. I HAVE WATCHED Y&R SINCE THE VERY BEGINNING & I'VE SEEN MANY GOOD ACTORS & ACTRESSES COME & GO BUT I AM DEEPLY SADDENED BY THE DEPARTURE OF MICHELLE STAFFORD WHO PLAYED PHYLLIS. SHE WAS TRULY REMARKABLE & THERE'S NO ONE WHO COULD EVER REPLACE HER.

    3. Anonymous: Couldn't agree with you more. not only was M.M. a good looking young man but he could ACT.....Just watched Jan.17/04 where he was just terrific. I don't know how he can act so well under all this pure nonsense. They've fired the best actor now or ever on the show & that includes all the Actors on the show!! I hope he will get a really good acting position somewhere that recognizes his massive potential. Y&R U don't recognize jealousy when you see it.....DO NOT FIRE him!!

  6. Melissa Ordway is a terrible replacement in the role of Abby Newman - boring. Phyllis can stay gone - never liked her. Kyle is really bad also. Billy is good, but he has been the center of the show for tooooo long - let's get on with it. Adam is a great actor.

    1. I have been a faithful Y&R fan since the beginning, BUT, with Adam, Billy and Phyllis gone I'm done... To let these strong characters go by choice is just foolish... good luck with your new show because the Y&R now is not the Y&R I have loved over the years.....pissed

    2. Shocked! Disgusted! How can Y & R let Adam go. I did not like him at first, but now I do. He needs to stay.

  7. Sign the petition to have Jill Ferren Phillips FIRED from Y&R as producer. SHE and only SHE is killing the best soap ever. Go to Ipetitions.com and sign up NOW.
    Glad to see this Kyle going,,,,worst actor ever. Hope they get Hillary,Mason,Summer, Fen ( gross).

  8. Wow....I am very disappointed with the firing of Michael Muhney. Y&R executives are ruthless, needless to say. What a shame. Hope he gets picked up by someone else.

    1. IT IS A BIG DISAPPOINTMENT THAT MICHAEL MUHNEY WAS LET GO. I REALLY LIKE HIM. HOWEVER, I AM SADDENED THAT IN THE STORYLINE WHERE HE ACCIDENTLY KILLS DELIA THAT HE HAS NOT YET COME FORWARD TO ADMIT THAT HE WAS RESPONSIBLE FOR HER UNTIMELY DEATH. IT'S A BIG BURDEN TO CARRY SO WHY DOESN'T HE ACCEPT THE RESPONSIBILITY OF HIS ACTIONS & TAKE THE CONSEQUENCES.

  9. As a Young and The Restless viewer since DAY1.... I am so disappointed in the direction the show is going. It's now like any other soap that has been cancelled. Whoever is making the decisions has totally ruined the show. I pity all the actors who have spent most of their lives on the show. Better watch out maybe one of you will be the next one to get the ax.

  10. I just can't believe they fired Adam. He was one big reason i'm still watching Y&R. Also, i think he and Chelsea make a beautiful couple together. What is going to happen to Chelsea's storyline when Adam leaves. And i heard Billy is leaving as well. Get ready for ratings drop, because Adam and Billy were two strong actors for the show. So when they exit, so will i.

  11. I have been watching for 35 years. I thought Adam(Michael M.) was perfect as Victor's son. Would be perfect to take over the company and follow in Victor's footsteps into the future. I am so disappointed. I am also disappointed about Billy (Billy) leaving. I really hate the Dellia story line, really hate it. Is this interesting to anyone? What is going on?

  12. I really did not like the fact they killed Delia,especially around the holidays. I did not like the fact they didn't recast Phyllis and have allow Sharon's deception about Summer continue this long. But losing Billy and Michael at the same time is ludicrous.

    Who is the person making the decisions at Y&R? Maybe they should be fired too! Their decision making is not wise. I have watched Y&R since it began and I can not think of a time in it's history the show has disappointed to this degree.

  13. i agree with all of the above comments.From the day that William Bell who was a masterful writer and storyteller died Y&R story line has become dull and filled with impossibilities.How can someone change the "will" of another without their knowledge.Killing one child to donate her eyes to another child is not only sad it is incomprehensible.This writer is a fool and after 35yrs. of loving Y&R i hate it and will no longer watch.

  14. Would comment about agreeing with all but what good can it do? Put class back in! It seems they want to kill the show. Writers stink. No more! Get new writers new stories and let us know when you do and I might start watching again.

  17. the people writing this show have a few cards missing from their deck

  18. how about letting the actors do the writing and let the writers act as this crap going on with billy and adam leaving the show will also have a lot of viewers leaving also'.

    ReplyDelete
  19. yeah,I agree with all the cmments above.It seems like to me that the writers are trying to kill Y&R, just like the writers killed As The World Turns and Guiding Light. That's 2 more shows that had been on TV for many years.Keep these actors!Negotiate with them!Good actors make Good shows and Good ratings.And the ones that you are not negotiating with are some of the Good ones.

  20. I've also watched Y&R for many years however now I just record and fast forward until something looks reasonably interesting. The Cane family story line is simply boring. No chemistry. Same with Neil. Great actor, lousy part. And to suggest that Sharon and Nick are getting back together yet again....please. Below boring. Billy and Victoria are the best characters, won't be the same with a new actor. Bring in some new actors and stop re-cycling old story lines.

  21. Another disappointed watcher, I have been complaining to people , its good to know others feel the same way. What are the writers doing? Sharon getting back together with Nick is insane. Those two even Nick is loosing in the show. His character isn't going anywhere. Nicky and Victor that's a story line that needs to go, it makes Nicky look like a idiot who can't handle anything without Victors crap. I miss Phyllis she is a great actress. The Adam line I would of liked for the writers to have wrote it accepting that he ran over Dilla and that it was a accident, Come on writers take a good look at what your writing.

  22. I too have watched Y & R since day one. Very disappointed with the changes. Miss Catherine first and foremost. Adam and billy will be greatly missed. Very poor decision. was it worth money saved when people stop watching? Both have done a great job but seriously storyline needs work. PLEASE, Nick and SHaron again???? Give me a break. Bring Phyllis back. Miss having a woman with brains. Please take pole from loyal readers before it's too late get so e new writers or ring back the old ones.

  23. The Y&R is certainly losing faithful viewers me included. Letting Adam go is their worse mistake. I feel that Michael could have carry Adam's character for the next several decades. I have heard rumors that Eric (Victor) had issues with Michael. I say get rid of Victor. Adam's character is a much more interesting one. I am so tired of the Victor Newman character.

    ReplyDelete
  24. The actor who plays Adam [Michael] was the only one who could ever possibly take over , when Eric[Victor] leaves or pass's away. When Michael played Adam, you loved him when he was good and hated him when he wa bad. No one will ever do as good a job. Michael could have carried the show long after Eric was gone. I have watched this show since I was a kid with my mom, at 46 yrs.old this is the dumbest thing I have seen them do. Actors change and leave but this guy has talent and will always be Adam Newman.

  25. I have watched for many years but I have lost interest in Y&R. It's like reading a book with pages missing. If a more competent person needs to be found to get the job done right
    ..FIND THEM SOON!!! Before it's too late!

  26. ...I have watched Y & R from the beginning, The Brooks & Prentis family, before the Newmans and Abbot familes. what a change and for the worse... your story lines stink, and again the writers keep killing little children, Jack & Nicki's baby, Cassie, Chelsea misscarriage, Colleen and now Delia... oh and Ashley's baby too. Now my other complaint, for goodness sake, get rid of Esther's maid outfit, very demeaning.... and not to mention, that most of the characters are involved romantically with each other, sisters with each others husband, and it seems that everyone that comes to Genoa City somehow knows each other from their past. just not realistic.... GET NEW WRITERS....

  27. It is an insult to get rid of Adam, Billy...but yet they have Abby (sucks!) And Kyle finally ?+++he should of been gone in the first week!!!! couldn't act his way out of a paper bag...I have watched loyally for years and really thinking hard about it..the writer s are awful!!!!! Other than for Nick and Shharon finding their way back together...call me a roman tic..but I have always loved them together...
