Young and the Restless – New Role for Christel Khalil

Christel Khalil let Young and the Restless fans know she can be seen on the Lifetime Channel this weekend. She posted on Instagram about her appearance and encouraged fans to watch or to set their DVR.  Furthermore, Christel plays Lauren in the thriller.

The movie revolves around a deranged former foster child who will do anything to create the family she desperately longs for. Shockingly, she may even be willing to kill! Haley Pullos who plays Molly Lansing-Davis on General Hospital stars in the film. Additionally, Teen Wolf’s Haley Webb rounds out the cast.

Moved To Recurring Status for Lily Ashby

According to Young and the Restless spoilers Christel requested the move to recurring status on Y&R in August of this year. She asked for the change to pursue new opportunities. Therefore, it would seem that move has paid off for Christel with her appearance in Sorority Stalker.

She joined the Young and the Restless in 2002 but left briefly in 2005.  Christel has guided the character of Lily Ashby from rebellious teenager to dedicated mother and savvy businesswoman. Seemingly,  her decision to make the change was supported by the powers that be. They sent the beautiful flowers seen below.

Y&R – Ashby Family Suffering

The Ashby family suffered due to their matriarchy being sent to prison. Lily appeared often when she first left. Several scenes aired of the family visiting together. However, that has changed now that she moved to another facility several hundred miles away.

Cain Ashby (Daniel Goddard) even suggested moving the family closer to Lily. Neither of the children liked the idea. However, they were willing to do it if they were closer to their mother. Fortunately, Devon Hamilton (Bryton James) convinced his bother-in-law not to move. Lily would not want the family disrupted.

For Young and the Restless fans who are longing to see Christel Khalil on-screen don’t miss Sorority Stalker!
