Sean Young is headed back to The Young and the Restless. The Blade Runner star will reprise the role of Meggie -- and that's bound to spell trouble for several Genoa City residents.
By now, most soap fans know that you can't keep a good incarcerated bad boy or bad girl down -- at least not for long. Proving that old adage true, a show spokesperson confirms that Sean Young (Meggie McClain
) is headed back to The Young and the Restless.
In an interview with CBS Soaps In Depth
, Y&R's head writer and executive producer, Maria Arena Bell, offered some insight into why Young is back. According to Bell, she fell in love with Young the minute the actress first set foot on the set.
"I thought [Sean] was fantastic from the first time she came on," Bell told the magazing. "She's an exceptional actress."
Young made her Y&R debut in June 2010 in what was designed as a five-episode story arc. The show crafted additional story for Young's alter ego, and Meggie popped back up in July. She last aired in early November.
Young returns beginning February 16. It is unclear how long she'll be sticking around.
