Tucker McCall has come and gone from The Young & The Restless over the years so some viewers might not know about his dramatic history in Genoa City. The character first appeared in December of 2009 and was played by William Russ for just a few weeks before being recast with Days Of Our Lives star Stephen Nichols. He continued to play the role until Tucker was written out in January 2013. In September 2022, Trevor St. John joined the cast of Y&R in a mystery role that was eventually revealed to be Tucker. However, by June 2024, the actor was saying goodbye to Genoa City.

High-powered businessman Tucker McCall made a splash in Genoa City starting an affair with Jill Abbott and a business deal with Katherine Chancellor. He secretly took control of Chancellor and revealed he was Katherine’s long-lost son, out for revenge by selling off her legacy piece by piece. Over time, Katherine and Tucker got to know each other and he decided to keep Jabot for himself, giving Ashley Abbott the CEO position.

While in Japan on business, Tucker and Ashley consummated their relationship, but she decided to stay with Neil Winters. However, he dumped her and Tucker happily comforted Ashley as they tried to buy Newman Enterprises subsidiary Beauty of Nature. He also supported Kay when her great-grandson, Chance Chancellor, was presumed dead. Tucker slept with Diane Jenkins, but ultimately proposed to Ashley and they got engaged on Christmas Eve.

A drunken Abby ran down Tucker, putting him in a coma, but Ashley took the blame for her daughter. Although he had a DNR, Katherine and Ashley kept him from being taken off life support. Kay was left in charge of McCall Unlimited and reversed all of his recent business decisions. Tucker’s living will also revealed a son who would inherit 20 million if he was found. When Tucker woke up from his coma, he and Ashley were married. He was also a suspect when Diane was found murdered. After Tucker fired Devon Hamilton from his record label, the two men were stunned to learn they were father and son. Then, Devon’s mother, Harmony, a former drug addict, showed up in town, and Tucker and Devon slowly began to bond.

Ashley and Tucker’s marriage was already on shaky ground, but when she found him in bed with Harmony, that was the last straw. This also ruined the progress he had been making with Devon. Tucker began advising Sharon Newman in business, which led to pleasure, and the two were nearly married before Victor returned to town to stop the wedding. Tucker then found himself under investigation from the SEC and after Sharon revealed his shady business practices, he was arrested. Sharon recanted her testimony, leading to his release, and Tucker was able to reconnect with Katherine before breaking her heart by announcing he was moving to Hong Kong. When Katherine passed away, Tucker was so devastated, he couldn’t bring himself to return for her funeral.

Tucker’s name was brought up again in 2019 when attorney Amanda Sinclair arrived in Genoa City with a revised version of Katherine’s will claiming Tucker had been involved in altering the will to give Devon her fortune. And in 2021, Devon shared his story of meeting his birth father with Amanda as she struggled with meeting her own birth mother. It was also said that Tucker had given up his riches and gone off the grid.

However, in 2022, Tucker made a splashy entrance back in Genoa City, crashing Summer Newman and Kyle Abbott‘s vow renewal on the Abbott estate in a helicopter! This also upset Diane, who had been hoping to keep her involvement with Tucker a secret after her own return to town. Back in his room at the GCAC, Tucker warned Diane that if she didn’t want her secrets coming out, she’d act as a spy on his behalf with the Abbotts because he had his heart set on reconciling with Ashley.

Tucker claimed that he’d had a near-death experience in a car crash in Monaco and had re-evaluated his priorities in life and was a changed man. When Ashley met with him, she wasn’t buying it for a second and threw him out. And it turned out he was still up to no good as he was working with Audra Charles to steal Chancellor-Winters when the company goes public and using Diane to dig up information in the hopes of also taking over Jabot! When Ashley gave him another chance, Tucker knew she was trying to trap him but tried to score points with her by revealing Diane’s association with Jeremy Stark.

Tucker reconnected with Devon and finally met his grandson, Dominic. He also tried wooing Ashley and urging her to leave Abbott to start her own business with his help, all the while sleeping with Audra. But after Audra reported Devon had found her out and exposed her double-dealing, Tucker cut her loose. He bedded Ashley, who delighted when Devon confronted his father about using Audra as his spy. When he tried to assure Ashley his feelings for her are genuine, she informed him she never wanted to see his face again and was leaving for Paris.

Tucker continued throwing his weight around Genoa City acting like a big shot, but in reality, his business was in trouble. Ashley surprised everyone bu buying up Tucker’s debt and used the leverage to force him to sell the company to Devon hoping to reunite father and son. When Devon declined, Tucker made moves to sell it to Newman, but pulled the offer after learning Victor wanted Adam Newman to run McCall Unlimited after the sale. He tried proposing to Ashley, but she turned him down. Tucker was then disappointed when Victoria was no longer interested in buying his company and then Devon also turned him down.

After Ashley rebuffed him again, a frustrated Tucker sold his company to Victor and decided to leave town, but changed his mind when Ashley suddenly invited him to move into the Abbott mansion! Tucker also scored points with Devon when he invited Harmony to attend the dedication of the Neil Winters Jazz Lounge. His spending time with his grandson, Dominic, also helped win Ashley over. Tucker was stunned when Ashley suddenly announced that they were engaged to get back at Jack, but then they decided to actually go through with it and even launched a new business venture together. Tucker offered to help Phyllis clear her name if she would help them get rid of Diane. But Adam forced Tucker to help keep Phyllis out of prison by threatening to reveal his involvement in covering up one of his singer’s involvement with underage girls.

Tucker and Ashley tied the knot and decided to launch a new cosmetics company named Glissade. Unfortunately, he came home from their Paris honeymoon alone and angry… and wound up in bed with Audra! Still after Jabot, Tucker gave Phyllis enough money to pay off her debts if she made it look as though Billy was stealing from his family business. Of course, they didn’t believe it, and found the listening device Tucker tried to plant in the Abbot manse thanks to Phyllis.

Although Tucker agreed to Audra’s plan to use Kyle against the Abbott family, he didn’t like that she was sleeping with him and never believed he’d truly betray them. (And he didn’t!) When Ashley returned to Genoa City, Tucker was stunned when she accused him of being violent with her in France. He insisted she was remembering wrong but it was enough for Mamie Johnson to sever her ties with the businessman.

Ashley accused Tucker of gaslighting her and wanted nothing more to do with him, so she was happy to sell him Glissade for a hefty sum. When she went to Paris to confirm her story, she called Tucker insisting he’d paid off the wait staff at the cafe. (Naturally, he denied it!) Turning back to Audra, Tucker tried rekindling things but she insisted that he stop obsessing over Ashley and choose her. Given Ashley’s behavior, Tucker chose Audra.

However, Audra grew jealous when Tucker continued keeping an eye on Ashley and warned the blonde to back off. Later, Tucker was taken aback when Ashley did a complete about-face and admitted he had been right about their argument in Paris and even more so when she tried to rekindle their relationship! As Tucker continued rebuffing Ashley’s advances he began to worry there was something seriously wrong with her. Fed up with Tucker’s obsession with Ashley, Audra dumped him again.

When Ashley wouldn’t listen to his urging to seek professional help, Tucker tried to talk to her family but they refused to listen to him. He got back together with Audra, who turned down his marriage proposal but agreed to reconsider it in the future. Upset that he once again rescheduled their European vacation, Audra let Tucker believe she and Nate had slept together. After another seduction attempt by Ashley, she fainted, and Tucker finally convinced her to get help from her psychiatrist friend, Alan Laurent.

Discovering that Audra had gone to Paris on business without him, Tucker followed her to try and stop her from stealing Glissade. While there, Tucker ran into Alan and was confused when the guy didn’t seem to recognize him. He arrived at Ashley’s apartment in time to rescue her from Martin, Alan’s evil twin brother, who had been impersonating him. Tucker and Ashley made amends before she checked herself into a clinic for treatment. He then offered Audra Glissade free and clear, but she revealed she had a mystery investor and had convinced the board to put her in charge. Tucker faked a heart attack to try and delay the board’s vote to oust him from the company but it didn’t work and he admitted defeat. And when Audra returned to Genoa City victorious, Tucker remained behind to lick his wounds.

Stay tuned to see if he ever resurfaces again!
