See the Cast of THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS Through the Years!


The cast of THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS has changed a lot in the years since the soap premiered on CBS in 1973. In fact, the 1974 cast photo only had a dozen actors in it. The most recent gallery of the Y&R actors, shot in 2016, has three times that number!

Longtime fans will recognize the late Jeanne Cooper (Katherine) in that cast from 1974. But the actor who has currently been on Y&R the longest is Doug Davidson (Paul), who joined the soap in 1978.

Take a walk down memory lane by browsing through these cast photos from the very beginning of Y&R all the way up to the present day!
