The Young and the Restless (Y&R) has been on the air for over four decades and in that time fans have fallen in love with many different characters. We’ve seen heroes take on villains; Genoa City residents endure tragedy; and couples fall in and out of love. While characters do come and go we always hate seeing our favorites leave. Alas, this is simply a part of soap opera life. Below is a list of seven Y&R characters we wish never left.
7. Deacon Sharpe
Yes, Deacon is a bad boy, but he’s a bad boy that makes things interesting in Genoa City. He manipulated, schemed, and lied during his stint on the Y&R; however, he’s certainly one of those characters fans love to hate. The good news is Y&R fans who adore Deacon can always catch him on the soap’s sister show, The Bold and the Beautiful (B&B). He’s one of those characters that has graced both daytime dramas.
