THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS Classic Photo Of The Day (Tyrone & Amy)

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 of Tyrone Jackson and Amy Lewis, played by Phil Morris and Stephanie Williams. Tyrone was Jazz's brother, and had to go undercover (as a white man) to help bring down the mob. Lewis went on to play Simone on GENERAL HOSPITAL and Sheila on ONE LIFE TO LIVE in the 1990s.

Watch an episode of Y&R from December 1984 below which features the early stages of the mob story.

  1. I was a kid just starting to get into Y&R at the time Stephanie E. Williams was on Y&R and I loved Amy!

    How I wished that Y&R would have interviewed some of these characters, who unfortunately are very little known by many of today's Y&R viewers. Sure the 'Whiteface' Storyline wasn't Bell Sr.'s finest hour but it would've been nice to hear from these two actors regarding their part in Y&R history.

    Anyone who hasn't seen Stephanie's comedic turn in the soap opera spoof The Bold, Black, The Beautiful, should check it out on You Tube. It's hilarious!
