'The Young and the Restless' Alum Beau Kazer Has Died at Age 63

Beau Kazer in 1976
Beau Kazer, who originated the role of Brock Reynolds on The Young and the Restless in 1974, passed away on December 30 in Thousand Oaks, CA. He was 63.

The Toronto native made the move to Los Angeles when he was only 17. There, he studied at the Stella Adler Academy of Acting and Theatre. After graduating, Kayzer made his debut on General Hospital, where he was an extra. He then landed the much more high-profile role on Y&R, playing Katherine Chancellor's (Jeanne Cooper) son, Brock — though he returned to GH as Dr. Bunny Willis in 1983.

Over the years Brock transformed from a rebellious young man into a minister and lawyer, among other careers. During his 1999 return, the character learned he fathered a daughter, Mackenzie Browning (Ashley Bashioum).

CLASSIC CLIPS: Brock Reynolds on THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS

Katherine Chancellor (Jeanne Cooper) and Brock Reynolds (Beau Kazer)
With THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS beginning the storyline of Katherine Chancellor's death, we thought it was a great time to look back on the character of Brock Reynolds, Kay's son. Y&R has not officially announced returning actors for the upcoming storyline (Eric Braeden tweeted Michael Damian was coming back) but the show can not possibly tell a story about the passing of Jeanne Cooper's beloved character without Beau Kazer playing Brock once again.

Brock first appeared in 1974 and has been on the show on and off ever since, becoming both a lawyer and a minister over the years. Kazer last appeared as Brock in October 2011.

Brock was Katherine's son with high school sweetheart, Gary Reynolds. After his father's death, Brock rebelled by using drugs and becoming a playboy. Eventually, he ran off to Europe with his friend Lorie Brooks (Jaime Lyn Bauer). Once Brock returned to Genoa City in 1974, he tried to make peace with his mother as he had found religion and become a minister.

In honor of the upcoming 40th anniversary of THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS (YR40), We Love Soaps will be posting a "Classic Photo of the Day" for the rest of the month. Today's photo is from the CBS Daytime special "After Hours."

Back in 1977, CBS aired a series of "After Hours" specials in the afternoon to showcase its daytime talent. On December 6, "Singin', Swingin' and All That Jazz" aired, and featured three stars from Y&R along with two actors from AS THE WORLD TURNS. Y&R's Victoria Mallory (Leslie), John McCook (Lance) and Beau Kazer (Brock) were joined by ATWT's Don Hastings and Keith Charles.

McCook is returning to Y&R next week but will be playing his longtime B&B character, Eric Forrester.
