Popular daytime soap opera The Young and the Restless (Y&R) has seen some pretty incredible talents over the years. Jessica Collins (former Avery), Eric Braeden (Victor) and Peter Bergman (Jack) are just a few Daytime Emmy winners that have graced Genoa City and been acknowledged for their incredible efforts. There have also been some not-so-great talents over the years. Below is a list of the ten worst Y&R actors to perform on the show.

10. Tatyana Ali

Tatyana Ali is probably best known for playing Ashley Banks, Will Smith’s youngest cousin, on the hit sitcom, The Fresh Prince of Bel Air from 1990 to 1996. Fans of Y&R were surprised when the child actor appeared on the soap as Roxanne, Devon Hamilton’s girlfriend, in 2007. She played a recurring role on the show and while her character lacked air time and depth, the viewers didn’t even really know her last name. Tatyana didn’t exactly nail the part either. Perhaps she is better off in the world of comedy and not soap operas.

9. Cady McClain

Cady McClain can be considered a daytime soap veteran, performing in All My Children and As The World Turns, before she was recast as Kelly Andrews in the Y&R in 2014. She even has two Daytime Emmys under her belt, one she was awarded in 1990 as Outstanding Younger Actress and another that she received in 2004 for Outstanding Supporting Actress. Accolades aside, Cady McClain simply did not do her best acting the year she resided in Genoa City, which makes it no surprise that the Kelly character was killed off one year later.
