The Young and the Restless never fails to deliver interesting and colorful characters. Some are lovable while others cause viewers to hate them. In the soap opera world however, hating a character is not black and white. Unlikable characters add an interesting element and some controversy, thus many of the “hated” characters are loved by their fans. Without them, the show would go stale. The loved characters offer balance to the show and a great contrast for the less than honest, loving characters with whom they interact. Listed below are some of the current characters. Love? or Love to Hate?
7. Sage (Warner) Newman
Sage Warner, played by Kelly Sullivan is a new addition to Y&R. First appearing in October 2014, she was the woman responsible for saving Adam’s life by nursing him back to health and altering his appearance to look like Gabriel Bingham. Over several months, she helped “Gabe” hide his true identity from his family and married him so they could get the Bingham inheritance. An attraction developed between Sage and Nick. She divorced Gabe, ended up working at the Underground for Nick and eventually got pregnant. Because she was intimate with Nick and Gabe, she got a paternity test and said it was Nick’s baby. She then married Nick and came clean with all her deceit about Gabe’s true identity. Angry, Nick left. Adam ended up delivering her baby and the premature infant may not survive. Now it looks like she and Nick may reconcile because of the baby’s precarious health.
