Though his exit is said to be storyline dictated, The Young and the Restless has already found a replacement for Diego Serrano (Diego Guittierez).
As previously reported by Soap Central, soap opera vet Serrano will leave Y&R when his contract expires this spring. The show, however, recently put out a casting call in the hopes of finding a new performer to take over the role later this year.
The 28-year-old Ecuadorian-born Serrano has already landed some post-Y&R work., He's slated to start filming the movie Olivier this summer. The movie will also star Juliette Binoche.
Soap Central has learned that Greg Vaughan has landed the role of Diego from Serrano. A Y&R spokesperson declined to comment on the recast. A first airdate for Vaughan is not yet available.
