There has been talk about Moses on THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS recently, and now he’s finally on his way to Genoa City! Jacob Aaron Gaines has been cast in the role and will make his debut on Thursday, April 1. No fooling!
Gaines had a supporting role opposite Omar Epps and Nia Long (Kat, GUIDING LIGHT) in the Netflix movie Fatal Affair and can also be seen in Motorvation, DIMENSIONAL SHIFT, as well as various television commercials. Y&R will mark the young actor’s daytime debut.
Moses Winters is the son of the late Neil Winters and Sofia Dupre, although the child’s paternity was in question when he was born, as Malcolm Winters could have also been the babydaddy. Once confirmed as Moses’ dad, Neil married Sofia, but the marriage didn’t last and after their divorce, Sofia took her boy with her when she left town, though he has come back for the occasional visit. The role was previously played by twins Phoenix and Zion Collins as well as child actors Randall L. Smith and Dax Randall.
Moses has been living with Sofia, but he’ll be coming to Genoa City to get to know his cousin, Nate, as well as siblings Lily and Devon. What other drama might the teen find himself mixed up in while he’s in town? You’ll just have to keep watching Y&R to find out!
