More of Amanda’s past was revealed when Christian Keyes joined the cast of THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS as Ripley Turner in February of 2019. This will mark Keyes’ daytime debut, but you may recognize the handsome actor from his role as Levi Sterling on SAINTS & SINNERS, Michael on SUPERNATURAL, Charlie Riggs on IN CONTEMPT, and Niles Monroe on THE FAMILY BUSINESS. More recently, Keyes played Desmond on DC’S LEGENDS OF TOMORROW and Nathan on THE BOYS.
Ripley is the former fiancé that Amanda filed a restraining order against and has been hiding from in Genoa City. So she was stunned when she returned to her room and found the guy waiting for her! He begged for a few minutes to talk, but she accused him of stalking her and threatened to call the cops. Ripley got Amanda to admit that their early days were special, and promised her he’d been taking anger management classes and going to therapy. But when Billy showed up, he had no choice but to make his exit!
However, it later appeared that all his talk of change was a bit lie as he crashed the Newman Enterprises anniversary party and prepared to kill his former fiancée! Unfortunately, with the bustling crowd and bad lighting, Ripley attacked the wrong woman in a white dress, stabbing Victoria Newman instead!
Stay tuned to see just how dangerous Ripley is and for more Y&R features, keep reading the CBS edition of Soaps In Depth magazine.
