When Cynthia Watros landed the role of Kelly on The Young and the Restless, her MTV pilot, Finding Carter, had not been picked up, so she agreed to play the recurring role. But now, the MTV series has been picked up for 12 episodes and Watros is a key part of the story about a teenage girl who learns she was kidnapped and is returned to her original family.
Soap Opera Digest is reporting that as a result, a casting call went out for a character named Molly, but who sounds very much like Kelly as the request is for a blonde between 35-40 who "has been down a difficult path in life, but is beginning to live again."
The magazine reports that the show had no comment when questioned about the new casting.
