The Newman family is welcoming a new family member -- well, sort of. The show has been forced to recast the role of Faith Newman because the show's current Faith, Alyvia Alyn Lind, has landed a big new role.
The Young and the Restless is recasting the role of Faith Newman. However, unlike some recent recasts that resulted in the rapid aging of toddlers, this recast is a little different.
Soaps In Depth
reports that "[d]ue to scheduling issues, Alyvia Alyn Lind will be unavailable for an upcoming summer storyline."
Don't worry, though, the conflict isn't anything bad. Lind has joined the cast of Blended
, a comedy set in a family-style resort and starring Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore.
As a result, Y&R has cast six-year-old Mckenna Grace as Sharon and Nick's daughter.
Lind will make her final appearance on July 2. Grace steps into the role on July 12.
