There is something beautiful about long-term growth on soap operas. Characters can start off as a villain/villainess on daytime drama shows, where relatable storylines help them to evolve over the years. While fans may start off hating a specific character, over time said character can win them over. Below are 12 Young and the Restless (Y&R) characters that fans hated, but grew to love.
12. Amber Moore
Amber Moore first appeared on Bold and the Beautiful, Y&R’s sister show, and was portrayed as a gold digger and schemer. When she made the jump to Genoa City in late 2006, Amber was pretty much up to her old tricks; however, as time wore on, Moore would evolve into a very decent person with a nice connection to Katherine Chancellor. She not only won the love of Y&R viewers, but also the respect of many in town.
