April showers bring May flowers, but they’re also bringing a new face to THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS! Max Shippee is making his daytime debut as the new character of Graham Bloodworth on the episode scheduled to air on Wednesday, May 3!
If that date sounds familiar to you, it’s because that is also the same day that Marla Adams returns as Dina Mergeron. The two arrivals in Genoa City are connected, as a rep for the soap confirms that Max is a trusted associate of Dina's. However, the reason that brings the pair to town is still being kept secret for now. We're told that Graham is a recurring character, so he will likely be appearing for as long as Dina is, or perhaps even longer — you never know in soaps!
