As the old saying in show biz goes, “there are no small parts, only small actors.” While minor and supporting roles on The Young and the Restless (Y&R) may not get much airtime, that doesn’t necessarily mean that they are not pivotal within the soap opera itself. More often than not, it is the small parts that seem to garner the most attention — whether it’s due to the quirkiness of the character, the humor they bring, or the incredible acting by the actor portraying the part. Below is a list of minor Y&R characters who have simply stolen the show.
12. Paul Williams (Doug Davidson)
While Y&R fans don’t get to see Paul as much as they used to (or would like to), it’s still an incredible thing to see Williams within Genoa City storylines to this very day. With a tenure on the show that lasts decades upon decades at this point, Paul continues to steal the show with his humor, intelligence, investigation savvy, and smarts.
