As soon as Billy and Lily began working together at Chance Comm on THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS, sparks began to fly. But might business turn into pleasure for the co-workers? “I mean, maybe,” Christel Khalil (Lily) demurred when Soaps In Depth asked about the possibility. “As of now, we’re just working together. But yeah, maybe. I mean, it’s a soap opera, right? Things are going to go romantic somehow. We’ll see!”
While Khalil laughed as she tried to remain non-committal and not give away any hints of upcoming storyline, she did admit that “it has been a while” since Lily has had some love in her life. And there is plenty of chemistry between her and Billy, which is due to the fantastic relationship Khalil has with co-star Jason Thompson (Billy).
“Jason and I have a lot in common and we have a great time working together,” she enthused. “And I think that shows on screen. It’s easy and I love him and he’s a great actor. He’s so easy to work with. That’s why it translates on camera.”
But whether the workplace banter would translate into pillow talk for Billy and Lily remains to be seen at this point. Vote in our poll below to voice your opinion on the possibility of a relationship between the pair and stay tuned to Y&R to see what develops!
