Young and the Restless comings and goings indicate that Reylynn Caster has been recast to play the role of Faith Newman replacing five years younger Alyvia Alyn Lind. And a leaker from behind the scenes says Faith is set to be a romantic interest for recast Moses Winters (Jacob Aaron Gaines). Alyvia will no longer be seen in Genoa City after next week. And with her replacement, Reylynn being 18 years old, it’s another case of soap opera rapid aging syndrome (SORAS) on the CBS soap opera.
Young and the Restless Comings and Goings: New Face for Faith Newman
Y&R spoilers confirm that Reylynn Caster takes over as Faith Newman. Her first airdate is Monday, April 12. Reylynn is an experienced actress who has appeared in several television shows. She was Lola Wight on Netflix’s The Big Show Show. She also appeared on CBS’s Me, Myself, and I as Nori. Plus, she had a lead role in the motion picture Dally and Spanky.
Faith Newman has been in a downward spiral for weeks on Young and the Restless. Kids at school bullied her mercilessly. Faith also started stealing alcohol from family members. Her latest trouble is Jordan (Madison Thompson) catfishing her. After learning the truth, Faith Newman’s devastated.
The teenager preceded to drink and drive which lead to a horrible car crash. Young and the Restless spoilers hint that Faith will be front and center as she recovers from her injuries. And it seems the accident serves as the transition plot point to swap from the younger to the older actress portraying Faith. This is something Y&R did before, swapping to a new Billy during a medical crisis.
Y&R Comings and Goings: Moses Winters and Faith in New Romance?
Now that Faith Newman is played by an older actress, a Young and the Restless leak indicates that she’ll have a grown-up romance in her future. Moses Winters will arrive in Genoa City soon. The two will cross paths and a romantic connection is highly likely. Both characters have recently been SORAS’d and are now very close in age.
It seems this could be the newest couple on Young and the Restless. Perhaps this pairing will help Faith get off the destructive path she has followed recently. Sharon Newman (Sharon Case) and Nick Newman (Joshua Morrow) worry about their daughter. They may embrace this new pairing as a fresh start for Faith. So, look for two recast teen actors in the next two weeks.
Young and the Restless Wishes Alyvia Well
As many Y&R fans know, Alyvia Alyn Lind has been seen as Faith Newman for the last ten years. She grew up on the screen. No doubt, Young and the Restless viewers are sad to see her go but wish her only the best. However, there have been many hints that the talented young actress wouldn’t stay on the soap. She was a sensation as young Dolly Parton in Coat of Many Colors.
And she did a jaw-dropping turn on the post-apocalyptic series Daybreak as a foul-mouthed teen arsonist – a big departure from Faith Newman on Young and the Restless. Now, her newest job is Lexie Taylor, a lead on SyFy series Chucky (based on the Child’s Play films). She’s filming in Canada soon. So, there is no way the actress could be in two places at once.
However, Faith Newman’s not leaving Young and the Restless. Instead, they recast the role. So, watch as Faith gets a new face in the coming days. And then there should be romance in the air as she meets the new Moses. Watch Alyvia’s last days as Faith Newman next week.
