Get ready for the much-mentioned father of The Young and the Restless’ Leslie (Angell Conwell) and Tyler (Redaric Williams) to arrive in Genoa City. According to Horror Society.com, Tony Todd, best known for his roles in Platoon, Final Destination and the horror smash, Candyman, has landed the role of the incarcerated Gus Rogan. When asked about upcoming projects, Todd revealed,
Yeah, I’ve got a bunch of films in the can. There’s a film called Unbroken. There’s a film that I made in Wales called Dead of Nite, which is making its Australian debut in April and I’m part of that. I’m currently doing day work on and when I say day work, I just mean I consider it my day job. I’m working on The Young and the Restless that just celebrated its 40th anniversary. They came to me with a character that I just couldn’t refuse. The difference in working in the soap world, you have to come totally prepared and you’re there and you basically have one take. I look at that as a challenge and my character is really a unique one. I play a prisoner who’s falsely accused of murdering his wife. I’ve done 4 episodes so far and I’m going to do at least 20. So that’s what I’m doing right now, I just worked yesterday. It’s a whole new demographic, I have my reasons for everything that I do. READ MORE
Neil (Kristoff St. John) found Cane (Daniel Goddard) sitting in his old chair at Jabot. Cane quickly welcomed him back, but when the phone rang, it was for Cane, not Neil. While Cane and Neil played musical chairs, Tyler (Redaric Williams) hit on Lily (Christel Khalil) yet again.
Leslie (Angell Conwell) tried to keep things with Neil professional, but couldn’t help fantasizing about a shirtless Neil offering to “stir her coffee.” READ MORE
Young and Restless Stunner Angell Conwell: "Leslie is Continuing to Handle Her Business in Genoa City"By Jamey Giddens on July 06, 2011
Genoa City received an additional helping of sexual chocolate this past season in the form of Angell Conwell. As take-no-prisoners barrister Leslie Michaelson on The Young and the Restless, Conwell has gone up against some of the most powerful performers on daytime's top soap, and from where we're watching, she's definitely held her own.
I caught up with the veteran of primetime (City Guys, Moesha, NYPD Blue), stage (There's a Stranger in My House) and music videos recently at the Daytime Emmys, where we dished about what was next for her popular character. What was it like for Conwell playing Leslie during the recent, emotionally-charged storyline where her alter ego successfully won custody of Baby Lucy for Phyllis (Michelle Stafford)? Also, will Leslie and Neil Winters (Kristoff St. John) ever get their party fully started? Keep reading to find out the answers!
Daytime Confidential: We are loving us some Leslie! What's next for her in Genoa City?
Angell Conwell: Leslie is continuing to handle her business in Genoa City. She's going to keep putting it down and being able to represent for Vance [Abrams] (Eric Roberts).
DC: She definitely represented her employer well when she went for the jugular during the custody battle for Lucy!
AC: She was trying to get that win [Laughs]! That's what she's supposed to do; that's her job. Clearly she found the perfect angles to go in on Billy (Billy Miller), Victoria (Amelia Heinle) and Daniel (Michael Graziadei). Those scenes were fun to play. READ MORE
