Lauralee Bell Reveals the Y&R Photo She Couldn’t Share Before!


In early May, Lauralee Bell (Christine) shared another video with THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS fans to help celebrate the soap’s 50th anniversary showing the actors playing around backstage on the Crimson Lights set. And while she tried to include everyone she could, there was one actor she deliberately had to remove! “There was someone in a booth that I had to edit out so it didn’t give away a story coming up,” she teased at the time.

In the original video, the photo is a blink-and-you-’ll-miss-it shot of Sharon Case (Sharon), Connor Floyd (Chance), Bell, and Joshua Morrow (Nick) sitting in a booth at Crimson Lights. However, if you examine the picture carefully, you’ll see that part of the drawing on the wall is erased and the table directly below it is blurry.

That’s because seated next to Floyd in the booth directly across from Bell was none other than Linden Ashby, who recently returned to Y&R as the notorious Cameron Kirsten! Bell shared her video on May 9, and Ashby didn’t air until May 26, so she had to be careful not to spoil the surprise of who was stalking Sharon!

Poof! There he is!Instagram

“Now you can see on the second photo who I had to edit out of the Crimson Lights video so the audience wouldn’t know who was sneaking around Genoa City,” Bell explained when she finally shared the unedited photo on Instagram. “Welcome back, Linden Ashby. Watch out, Sharon!”

After Bell asked her Y&R co-stars if they would dance for the fans (spoiler alert: they did and it was awesome!) and her follow-up Crimson Lights video, we wonder if she’s working on another one… and we wonder what other surprises are coming up she might have to edit around!
