Soap fave Jensen Buchanan (ex-Vicky/Marley McKinnon, Another World; ex-Sarah Gordon, One Life to Live; ex-Melissa Bedford, General Hospital) is heading to The Young and the Restless.

Hold onto your hats, soap fans, because The Young and the Restless is getting a blast from the past: former soap star Jensen Buchanan (ex-Vicky/Marley McKinnon, Another World; ex-Sarah Gordon, One Life to Live; ex-Melissa Bedford, General Hospital).

Soap Opera Digest reports that the CBS soap has snagged the Alabama native to play Elise Moxley, described as a member of Genoa City's social set.

"I was really honored that Young and Restless would come to me and say, 'Do you want to do this part?'" the actress says. "I wasn't exactly playing hard to get. I was just kind of retired and was sort of finished with that chapter in my life, but then I found myself beginning a new place in my life, and my children are both grown now -- which is amazing because I had them on Another World -- and found myself saying, 'I have the time, and I definitely have the passion again.'"

Watch for the Emmy-nominated actress to appear in Genoa City on Friday, November 13.
