A familiar face is coming to Genoa City when actress Roxanne Hart joins the cast of THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS in the recurring role of Kim Dunaway. First reported by Soap Opera Digest, she is scheduled to make her first appearance in the episode airing on Thursday, Nov. 18, and is said to hold the key to a mystery that unfolds in Genoa City.
Viewers will recognize Hart likely for playing the role of nurse Camille Shutt in the CBS primetime medical drama CHICAGO HOPE from 1994-98. She can also be seen in the films Highlander, The Verdict, and Oh, God! You Devil among others as well as numerous TV movies. Hart has also guest-starred on numerous primetime television series during her lengthy career, including REMINGTON STEELE, ER, LAW & ORDER, OZ, GREY’S ANATOMY, and CRIMINAL MINDS.
In recent years, Hart had a recurring role in the second season of HOW TO GET AWAY WITH MURDER, and another on MANHUNT. Her most recent television role was in a February 2021 episode of THE RESIDENT. And, in fact, Y&R is not actually Hart’s daytime debut — her IMDb page lists the role of Isadora on ONE LIFE TO LIVE in 1980 as her first credited work!
While there are no details as yet which particular mystery Kim will hold the key to, she could slot into a few storylines. Perhaps this woman holds some information for Abby regarding what really happened to Chance? Since we know the role has been recast again, Chance’s return is going to be a major part of November. There’s also the possibility that she could be another person like Gaines, who has information about Ashland’s past. Or there could even be a new storyline starting this month she’ll become an important part of…
You’ll just have to keep watching Y&R to see what happens next!
