Clementine Ford Dishes on The Young and the Restless Casting

by at . Comments

Clementine Ford - previously best known for her role on The L Word - is enjoying her time as Mac Browning on The Young and the Restless.

How did land the role? The actress recently told TV Guide Magazine how it came about:

I’ve known Greg Rikaart [who plays Kevin] for years and have a sneaking suspicion he had something to do with this. He’s been so helpful to me. He said, 'The great thing about soaps is that you can fumble one day and reinvent yourself the next.' And that’s good because, to be honest, I think I may have done some really bad acting the first week just trying to keep up. But I’m getting the swing of it now.

I'm so confused. Last week, Mac's appearance changed. From what I'm reading it has been Clementine Ford since April. I know she got extensions, but her facial structure and bags under her eyes have changed as well. Am I crazy????

I have nothing against Clementine Ford, however, it is painful to watch her as Mac. I think the new Billy is great, but putting him against Ford is just plain horrible. She is so stiff and looks too mature. Oh, I also think Neil Winter's new gal can't cut it either. I'm sorry, but not every model can act. Am I alone thinking this?

I don't like the way the new Mac looks she is to old looking and the bags around her eyes doesn't help.

THE PERSON Y&R CASTED FOR MACKENZIE LOOKS TOO OLD FOR HER. THERE IS NO WAY BILLY WOULD LOVE SOMEONE LIKE HER. SHE HAS NOT SMILED ONE TIME AROUND BILLY. BADDDDDDDDD JOBBBB.

I’m excited about the return of the character but not the choice in actress. Clementine Ford looks nothing like the previous MacKenzie’s and I’m not sure how she arrived to getting casted for this part. I understand she has an impressive acting background and famous mother, but this casting decision is very disappointing, considering the successful ones Y&R has recently made. Perhaps if she grew her hair out (as displayed on this website), I can imagine it, but based on her debut today, she looks way too mature to play the part of MacKenzie Browning. Anyone else agree/disagree?

I just watched today's episode of The Young and the Restless and I loved it! Using Jeanne Cooper as Marge to narrate was inspired and entertaining. I just wish you could get poor Kevin out of the mess he's in; I don't look forward to seeing him get even farther into mental illness and dragging Amber with him.
