CASTING NEWS! GH Vet Joins Y&R!
A Y&R spokesperson revealed to TV Guide Magazine's Michael Logan that Rogers' character will be named Colin, and there's no word yet on whether the character will have a last name. Most soap fans know that a withheld last name can mean that a character has ties to someone already on the canvas.
Colin is described by the show as "a mysterious and charming stranger [...] who comes to Genoa City with a dark secret and a threatening agenda."
Considering the recent hiring of former As the World Turns star and fellow Aussie, Paul Leyden, it is widely believed that Rogers will factor into the storyline involving Leyden's Blake and Cane, played by another Australian native, Daniel Goddard.
Rogers appeared as a contract player on General Hospital from 1980 to 1992. He returned to the ABC soap for guest appearances in 2006 and 2008. Rogers also appeared as Robert on the GH spinoff, Night Shift, and in a recurring role on The Bold and the Beautiful.
Rogers starts filming his first Y&R scenes later this week, and the actor is expected to first air on December 6.
