We at Soap Cities regret to inform The Young and the Restless fans that two beloved characters have been stricken with a terrible affliction. A terribly fun one!
Soap Opera Rapid Aging Syndrome (SORAS)
The new Mattie and Charlie will be portrayed by Lexie Stevenson and Noah Alexander Gerry, respectively. The adolescent versions of Mattie and Charlie are apparently polar opposites in personality. That should be the source of loads of fun, right, dear Soap Cities readers?
The younger Mattie was most recently portrayed by McKenna Roberts, while Brandin Stennis was the last actor to play the role of Charlie. We’ll miss them, as they did a great job as the Ashby twins. We know they’ll find lots more exciting work out in La La Land though.
What Will the New Mattie and Charlie Be Up To?
We look forward to seeing how the teen Mattie and Charlie mix it up in Genoa City. Perhaps they’ll be friends with Y&R‘s current favorite erratic teen, Reed (Tristan Lake Lubeau).
There’s no doubt they’ll be affected by Cane’s recent work complications, shall we say, as well as Lily’s exciting modeling career.
Then of course there’s grandparents Neil (Kristoff St. John) and Colin (Tristan Rogers). How will their lives intersect with the older twins’? What do you think, Soap Cities readers? Let us know what you think will or would be some fun storylines for these two “newcomers.”
