“I guess you can call this a throwback,” she wrote. “Back from my days on CAPITOL. Who knew I’d end up on Y&R?”

Walton didn’t reveal the exact date of this ad, but she was on CAPITOL from 1984 until it was canceled in 1987. That’s when she joined Y&R as the new Jill Foster Abbott, replacing Brenda Dickson.

Longtime fans will recognize the late Terry Lester, who played Jack Abbott on Y&R throughout the ‘80s. And that’s Marj Dusay as CAPITOL’s Myrna Clegg, who later went on to become beloved to GUIDING LIGHT fans as Alexandra Spaulding!

Of course, now this ad makes us want to watch old ‘80s episodes of the soaps with all the big hair, big shoulder pads, and big drama!

The cast of Y&R has naturally changed a lot over the years. See just how much in the special gallery below!
