Two longtime friends will be reuniting on THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS when Nina and Christine have scenes together in the Friday, Dec. 4 episode! “Nina and Cricket are back together,” Lauralee Bell (Christine) enthused in a video posted to Twitter shot on the set with her co-star. Tricia Cast, who is currently reprising her role as Nina, added, “And just in time to celebrate Y&R’s 12,000th episode!” And as Bell declared, “You won’t want to miss this!”
Bell made her debut as Christine “Cricket” Blair way back in 1983, and Cast joined Y&R as Nina Webster in 1986. The two young women befriended each other as teens, and despite Nina seducing Cricket’s boyfriend, the young women remained good friends and have always been a part of each other’s lives. And while Nina returned to Genoa City for her son’s wedding, it looks as though she’ll also find time to catch up with her old friend, Christine!
“You’ll just have one quick day to see us together on Y&R,” Bell tweeted. “So don’t miss it!” The soap aired its 12,000th episode on Dec. 1, but has been celebrating its epic history all week with lots of reminiscing about the past and tons of fun flashbacks in every episode. Looking forward to revisiting some classic moments with Nina and Christine!
And while Cast’s return looks to be sadly brief, hopefully she’ll be available to reprise her role again in the future because it’s always nice to see heartfelt reunions between old friends!
