Y&R’s Camryn Grimes Celebrates Her 25th Anniversary — See the Party Pics!


It was 25 years ago on March 19, 1997, that child star Camryn Grimes joined the cast of THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS as Cassie Newman (although she didn’t know she was a Newman for a little while!). Sadly, the soap killed Cassie off in 2005, but Grimes continued to make the occasional appearance when Cassie would visit one of her family members in dreams or visions. Then, in 2014, the actress returned to Y&R as Mariah Copeland, who would be revealed to be Cassie’s long-lost twin sister.

“25 years ago this little girl found a lucky penny and I am still in awe of the luck we’ve had since,” Grimes shared on Instagram with a screenshot from her debut episode. “I’ve found purpose, motivation, drive, responsibility, creativity, friends, family, and a whole mess of fun. Thanks for sticking with me — here’s to the luck not running out!”

On March 17, Y&R celebrated that anniversary by throwing the actress a special party attended by her friends in the cast and crew. If you weren’t able to attend, you can just take a peek through the gallery below and it’ll feel like you were there!
