Fans of THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS were stunned by the shocking twist that wrote Kelly Sullivan off the soap when Sage perished in a tragic car crash after learning the truth about her baby. The actress took to social media to express her gratitude to the loyal viewers.
“RIP Sage,” she tweeted. “It was such an amazing run! Thank you to the fans for all your love and support. And thank you to my Y&R family.”

What a pleasure it was to work with @KellySullivanNY— Justin Hartley (@Hartleyjustin) April 30, 2016
Such a pro. Funny and really really good too.
Hope to get that chance again.
