Young and the Restless comings and goings predict Sasha Calle exits soon as Lola Rosales – and for a wonderful reason. Last year, Calle was plagued with unjustified rumors that Y&R fired her. As we stated then, those were untrue. But now, there’s a big cause to celebrate for the actress as she leaves the CBS soap opera.
Young and the Restless Comings & Goings: Thrilled Sasha Calle Exits
When some chatter last year insisted Sasha Calle was out at Y&R, we called them out as untrue. Clearly, since then, Lola Rosales has been a constant presence, although she hasn’t had a front-burner storyline in a while.
Now, it looks like the Young and the Restless actress will step away from the CBS soap of her own accord. But why? In addition to playing Lola, Sasha is an accomplished musician. She spends much of her time dedicated to crafting songs and videos.
But, it’s not Lola’s alter-ego making music that’s taking her away from Young and the Restless. Instead, it’s another acting role Sasha Calle landed that will pull her away from the soap. And it’s likely to be an extended absence – or a permanent one from Y&R.
First Lola Rosales – Now Supergirl – Y&R News
The big news for Sasha Calle from Young and the Restless is that she landed the coveted role of Supergirl in the new The Flash movie. The pic below is from a Zoom call. Director Andy Muschietti recorded when he announced Sasha got the part.
Argentine director Muschietti asked her, “can you fly?” and she laughed and said, “if you need me to.” The Young and the Restless actress thought this was another Q&A session about casting the role. Then he said, “You’re Supergirl!” and Sasha Calle broke down crying.
He congratulated her. And he said everyone on the project was “thrilled” with her casting. Sasha turned and said, “I got it,” to someone unseen. Then, she said she’d probably spend the day crying. So, big congratulations are due to Young and the Restless‘ Sasha Calle. Although that means Sasha must leave.
Sasha Calle Exits Lola Role at Young and the Restless
Usually, it takes many months to shoot a superhero feature like this. So, once they set a filming date, we’ll update Y&R fans here on Sasha’s prospective exit date as Lola. She’ll work alongside Ezra Miller (Fantastic Beasts, Suicide Squad). He plays the title character, The Flash.
Also on The Flash cast are Ben Affleck and Michael Keaton as Batman (casting both implies a jump to the future). They also cast Billy Crudup (Watchmen, Almost Famous) as the other actor associated with the project.
So, Young and the Restless will soon say goodbye to Sasha Calle, but she’s leaving Lola Rosales behind on her own terms. We were happy to shut down the false rumors of her firing before. Now, we’re excited to report the actress is breaking boundaries as the first Latinx to play the part.
