7 Young And The Restless Characters We Wish Never Left

Slide 1 of 4 | View On One Page

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.

6. Dylan McAvoy

Is it too soon to add Dylan to a list such as this one? He only just left the Y&R early this year when his character was placed in the witness protection program. McAvoy was smart, kind, understanding, and incredibly handsome. His onscreen chemistry with wife Sharon was great and it was refreshing to see her in a solid relationship with someone other than Nick Newman.
