Paul’s daughter is coming back to Genoa City! THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS has cast AS THE WORLD TURNS fan favorite Jennifer Landon (Gwen) in the role most recently played by Eden Riegel. During her 2005-’08 tenure at ATWT, Landon — the daughter of the late TV icon Michael Landon — won three back-to-back Emmy Awards in the Outstanding Younger Actress category. She returned to the soap in 2010 as ATWT was coming to an end.
Heather left town last year with her career and reputation in tatters after Restless Style posted photos — taken by her own brother, Ricky — of her drunken hook-up with Adam. According to TV Guide, which first broke the news, Landon reports to the Y&R set tomorrow and will make her debut on Thursday, June 7.
