The Young and the Restless has delivered many different plot lines over their long history and many interesting characters both long-term and short-term. But what is a soap opera without a look-alike to stir things up? Here are a few of the doppelgangers who made an impact on the show.
5. Katherine Chancellor/Marge Cotroke
Marge Cotroke was first introduced as Katherine’s look-alike back in 1989 when Kate had been kidnapped and Marge, who Katherine thought was merely a puppet, took over her life fooling her husband, Jill and everyone else. When Kate eventually freed herself — the conspirators all went to jail, but Kate felt a connection to Marge. We never heard from her again until her reappearance in a bar in 2008. Marge was subsequently killed in a drunk driving accident and everyone believed Katherine had died until eventually the truth came out that Katherine was alive. Marge was a very colourful character and Jeanne Cooper played both parts very well.
