Christel Khalil Not Renewing Her 'Young and the Restless' Contract, Will Recur

Actress Christel Khalil announced on social media that she is going off contract with The Young and the Restless. She has played Lily Winters since 2002.

"Hello Lovelies!" she wrote. "I wanted you to be the first to know that if you see less of me on @youngandrestlesscbs Opens a New Window. , it’s because I have decided to switch from Y&R full time to recurring status. That means I’m not leaving, just ready (after 16 amazing years playing Lily) to explore new things! I will continue to be a proud member of the Y&R family and look forward to further adventures playing Lily. Thank you for all the love and support over the years!"

Head writer and executive producer Mal Young assured fans the character would still be around.

"We fully support Christel's decision," he posted. "We're pleased to say that both she and Lily will remain a much-loved part of Y&R."
