Viewers of THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS may have been a little surprised when the soap came back from hiatus and Michael Baldwin was suddenly sporting a new hair color! Many soap stars experimented with new looks over the COVID quarantine period as they typically have their hair done by their show’s hair department. And since that can sometimes include coloring, Christian LeBlanc began letting his hair gradually go gray over the course of the summer as his followers on social media saw. In fact, at one point, he decided that he looked just like his adorable little pup, Sally!
The actor also made a joke in another Instagram post about his new hair, since “Le Blanc” translates to “The White” in French. On Halloween, he shared another photo with his new ‘do posing with a sword like a character in GAME OF THRONES. “Per your many, many suggestions concerning what to do with white hair, I give you the other, other Targaryen!” he declared.
Y&R returned to the air with new episodes but it wasn’t until mid-October when LeBlanc returned to the screen to show off his new hair color. And judging from fan reaction, Michael has been dubbed Genoa City’s silver fox! We think it looks great, so we understand why LeBlanc chose to keep this colorl when he went back to work, but we invite you to voice your opinion in our little online poll below!
