The Young and the Restless Questions and Answers

by at . Comments

You may have seen every episode of The Young and the Restless that's ever aired. Yet, despite this almost inhuman effort, you might still have a few questions about the popular soap opera.

Soap Opera Digest recently answered a few from readers:

Q: Has Jeanne Cooper starred on any other soap operas?
A: Not exactly, but The Young and the Restless grande dame did a brief crossover to sister show The Bold and the Beautiful in 2005.

Q: Is Thad Luckinbill (pictured) related to actor Laurence Luckinbill, who was once married to Lucille Ball's daughter, Lucie Arnaz?
A: Yes, the men are distant cousins. Laurence Luckinbill was also once wed to Robin Strasser (Dorian, One Life to Live), which makes Thad also related to Strasser and Luckinbill's sons, Nicholas and Benjamin.

Q: Are Eileen Davidson (Ashley) and Doug Davidson (Paul) related?
A: No, their common last name is just a coincidence.
