KarinaLogue.jpg

Karina Logue has been cast as Helen Copeland on THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS, and will first air on Thursday, August 14. The actress has appeared in several TV series, including SONS OF ANARCHY (starring her brother, Donal Logue), CSI: NY, BONES, TRUE BLOOD, NCIS and ARMY WIVES, and films such as Argo, Zodiac and When A Stranger Calls.

Details about her character are being kept under wraps, but seeing as how she shares a last name with Mariah, there's obviously some kind of connection there, and the soap has confirmed that Logue will first appear in scenes with Joshua Morrow's Nick. The casting notice describes Helen as a trained nurse who was in and out of jobs, and she was a young mother... but an unwilling parent.

So who do you think Helen is? Sound off in the comments!

Polo Crosses THE BRIDGE

When FX's crime thriller, THE BRIDGE, returns tonight, Wednesday, July 9, at 9:00 p.m. EST, THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS' Daniel Polo will be a part of it. The Emmy nominee who broke hearts as Jamie, the troubled teen that Fenmore bullied, will be kicking the season off when he debuts in a similar role.

"I play Kyle, a nervous kid who gets in a little over his head with someone I meet at a car wash," Polo reveals of his character. "My scenes were with Franka Potente (AMERICAN HORROR STORY: ASYLUM). She has a really unique character [Eleanor Schrock, a ruthless, shunned Mennonite who is working for the cartel] this season for the show. It was great to work with her."

Being able to add this year's Peabody Award-winning drama to his resume was a thrill for Polo, but that's not all he took away from the experience. "I learned how to ride a bike for the project," he reveals. "Of course, I practiced at home on a regular bike before filming, and then on set they gave me a bike for a 10-year-old. The sizing was definitely off, but I made it work!"

And you'll want to hold on to your seats — this series that focuses on the joint battle against a Mexican drug cartel by an El Paso police detective and her counterpart from across the border is about to get intense. "I spent four hours in the make-up chair to film my final scene, which I believe is in the third episode," Polo teases. "It was a fun project to work on."

You'll Be FINDING Watros On TV Tonight!

CynthiaWatrosYR.jpg Remember when Cynthia Watros had to vacate her role as Kelly on THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS because of a new primetime drama, MTV's FINDING CARTER? Well, you can see her in action when the show debuts tonight, Tuesday, July 8, at 10 p.m. EST on MTV! The 12-episode series focuses on Carter, a teenager (played by REIGN's Kathryn Prescott), who discovers that the woman who's been raising her isn't her mother -- Watros' character, Elizabeth, a police detective, is!

"I'm the mother of a teenaged girl and I was hoping to do one of those GILMORE GIRL type [shows]," executive producer Terri Minksy tells Soaps In Depth. "This brilliant, beautiful [script] was available and I took it! I really did respond to it and wanted to write a mother/daughter piece."

The pilot shows Carter and Lori (the mother who kidnapped her) having yogurt with a side of gummy bears and banter for dinner before Carter's world turns upside down. "That scene is almost literally a transcript of my life with my daughter," Minsky reveals. "We do the 'love you, love you more' thing that Carter and Lori do."

Scene-stealer Zac Pullman plays Grant, the younger brother Carter never met since he was conceived after she was kidnapped and became -- in his words -- the "replacement" child. "What does that do to him psychologically," Minksy rhetorically asks. "What will Carter's relationship with him be?"

CARTER scored a casting coup with Watros' TV parents -- they're played by Robert Pine (ex-Stephen, THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIUFL) and Meredith Baxter (FAMILY TIES). "Writing for those two is beyond fun," Minksy shares.

Y&R's Serricchio Gets A Witchy Woman!

IgnacioSerricchioGal.jpg

On Lifetime's WITCHES OF EAST END, Ignacio Serricchio (Alex, THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS) could be just the thing to make Wendy's ninth and final life count... if she lets him! "She meets him in the [season premiere] episode," offers Executive Producer Maggie Friedman. "He's just a regular, salt of the earth guy, but he totally challenges her." Look for the duo to share sparks from the start, but can she get over her fear of mortality enough to enjoy it?

If the hot EMT can't heal what ails her, at a minimum, he could be quite the distraction! "He's so good and so sexy!" Friedman enthuses of the former soap star. "Mädchen Amick (Wendy) was kind enough to come in and read with different actors who were auditioning for the role, and she and Ignacio just had so much chemistry that we had to snatch him up. They're great together!"

Serricchio will appear for a multi-episode arc beginning Sunday, July 6, at 9:00 p.m. EST. There's a wickedly fun season ahead on WITCHES OF EAST END — for more details, catch Friedman's upcoming Primetime Preview interview in the ABC Soaps In Depth issue that goes on sale Monday, August 8.
