‘Young and the Restless’ Casting News: Love Interest For Devon? New Character Arrives In Genoa City

Young and the Restless casting news indicate Devon Hamilton (Bryton James) has the potential to be a love interest. A woman named Candace will arrive in Genoa City soon. Devon lost his wife Hilary Curtis (Mishael Morgan) not too long ago and might be ready for love again soon. Right now

Young and the Restless – New Character In Genoa City

Soap Opera Digest reports that Young and the Restless is casting a new series regular. A call went out to hire an actress to fill the role of Candace. She is described as an African-American woman in her 30s and is “a super-smart, confident, kick-ass executive with a background in science from Chicago.”

As a result of the recent departure of Mishael Morgan as Hilary Curtis, there’s a big hole in Genoa City. Therefore a strong African-American female would fill that spot nicely.  However, let’s hope this new addition won’t take away significant screen time for cherished characters already on the canvas. Y&R news suggests the actress began taping in August and should appear on screen shortly.

Romance Ahead For Devon Hamilton on Y&R?

Candace is an outgoing, single woman but is also open to finding love. Young and the Restless spoilers recently show Devon’s loved ones encouraging him to live his life again. He has been mourning for a while now. However, he did attend Nick Newman’s (Joshua Morrow) recent bachelor party, if only for a short time.

Nate Hastings (Brook Darnell) has been right where Devon is now. Additionally, Nate has proven to be a great sounding board and support for Devon. Y&R spoilers hint that Nate could be gearing up for romance with Victoria Newman (Amelia Heinle). Perhaps Devon will follow Nate’s lead. Candace may just be what the doctor ordered to help heal Devon’s broken heart.

With the death of Hilary plus Lily Ashby’s (Christel Khalil) incarceration, Devon has not had a strong female to confide in. Furthermore, while the siblings made peace, Lily is not there daily to offer Devon the support and advice he needs. Perhaps, a relationship with Candace will start as a friendship that could blossom into something more.

Other Impeding Arrivals on The Young and the Restless

Y&R spoilers and news previously reported that the new series regular named Nora begins filming on October 5. She is an ambitious and beautiful female who has an instinct for knowing what makes women look and feel fabulous. Sounds like she would fit in perfectly at Jabot or Fenmore’s!

Alice Hunter is also on the horizon to appear as Kerry Jones. Alice is an Australian actress. Her character is described as a sweet young woman who isn’t above crossing lines. Kerry is a Jabot employee who will also interact with those at Newman Enterprises. She will first appear near the end of October.

What do you think about Devon Hamilton getting a new love interest? Do you think it’s too soon for him to move on and want him to grieve more for Hilary? Or do you think it’s about time he found a new love? Watch Y&R weekdays on CBS to see these new characters arrive and watch for Devon’s love life to recover if showrunners intend for Candace to be a match with him.
