Alicia Coppola has joined the cast of CBS soap opera The Young and the Restless as Dr. Meredith Gates, according to Soap Opera Digest.

"They explained a little bit about it and who I would be working with and sent me some material,” Coppola tells the magazine. "In those 10 pages that I read, it was a really fully fleshed-out female character. I haven’t really read something like that in a long time, something that was so dynamic and interesting that I automatically saw a backstory. She reminds me of Lorna. She feels things very deeply, and I just think there’s a lot more going on than what’s on the surface. I like that.”

Coppola is scheduled to debut on Y&R in the April 13th episode. Daytime fans will remember her as the original Lorna Devon on NBC's Another World from 1991-1994.
