Although Heather was played by Jennifer Landon when the character last appeared back in 2012, Vail Bloom is returning to reprise the role that she originated in 2007 and played until 2010. (In between, ALL MY CHILDREN star Eden Riegel also played Heather from 2010-11.)
Since exiting Y&R, Bloom has appeared in the movies A Valentine’s Date, Life at the Resort, Paranormal Abduction, Too Late, Surviving the Wild, Orphan Horse, and The Ghost Beyond. She could also be seen in episodes of HOLLYWOOD HEIGHTS, CASTLE, and HELLO LADIES.
Heather has been raising Daniel’s daughter, Lucy Romalotti, who will be returning to Genoa City alongside her mother. Lucy will now be played by young actress Lily Brooks O’Briant, who was a regular on the Netflix comedy THE BIG SHOW SHOW and played the title role of Ella in the Apple+ series LIFE BY ELLA. She also appeared in the Amazon Prime Original series THE TICK and the TV movie Crash & Burn.
Unfortunately, Y&R did not reveal when Heather and Lucy would be joining Daniel in Genoa City or how long they’d be sticking around, so you’re just going to have to stay tuned to see. Because after everything Daniel has said about how things went sour with Heather, there’s going to be plenty of drama ahead!
