Y&R Casting News

By SOD Posted: Apr 9, 2013

Y&R is looking for a non-ethnic woman in her late 30s/early 40s to play a fortune teller/psychic who is described as somewhat normal and unique. It is considered a principal role.

You are so right. The character seems like an Olivia type.

A principal role usually means a small one epi role. And yes the "non ethnic" was the wrong choice of words. At least they didn't use the common soap casting terms "beautiful Caucasian"

I imagine if they cast someone with ethnic origins, viewers would be calling them racists and promoting ethnic stereotypes (e.g. Ms. Cleo). How else would you word it?

Kind of like another Jana. Ouija boards, tarot cards. Wonder what she will predict...'I see love looming in your future.'
That covers em all.

Maybe she'll tell Katherine's fortune and rat out kevin and chloe.
I'd like that!

I understand that part because I too would see the stereotypes if they cast someone ethnic. DAYS Celeste came to my mind. They could've simply just put caucasian female fortune teller.

she was hallucinating because Heather Webber injected her with some sort of drug that made her have nightmares. and she kept seeing little wolves everywhere. Glad that it's over.
