DC's Top 5 Soap Opera Newcomers of 2012
No. 5: Robert Adamson, The Young and the Restless
From the moment we were reintroduced to sexy Lincoln Heights star Robert Adamson on Nick-at-Nite's premiere nighttime soap Hollywood Heights, we started wishing the new brass at The Young and the Restless (Who happened to be his HH bosses Jill Farren Phelps and Josh Griffith!) would cast him as lookalike Joshua Morrow's son Noah Newman. As CBS Daytime Chief Angelica McDaniel tweeted to @dcconfidential ahead of Adamson's casting news breaking, "sometimes wishes come true." Indeed they do!
No. 4: Tequan Richmond, General Hospital
The Young and the Restless hunk Robert Adamson wasn't the only soap newcomer we wished casting directors would take notice of in 2012. When word leaked General Hospital was in the market for a new TJ, Everybody Hates Chris cutie Tequan Richmond was the first thesp to pop into our minds!
The 19-year-old actor and rapper has crazy chemistry with equally-adorable Haley Pullos, who plays his gal pal Molly Lansing Davis. With TJ and Molly having survived Port Charles water supply being poisoned, and now interning at Manning Enterprises, we bet Richmond will have a chance to exhibit even more swagger in 2013!
