The Young and the Restless (Y&R) spoilers reveal that one CBS soap star has scored an exciting new role. Y&R fans know and love Alyvia Alyn Lind as Faith Newman in Genoa City, but Lind is set to star in a thrilling USA Network and Syfy series.
According to Deadline, Lind will be featured as a series regular and one of the four teen leads in a TV adaptation of Chucky.
This will be a new spin on the Child’s Play horror film series, which features the now infamous redheaded possessed doll. The television series version will kick off with the discovery of a vintage Chucky doll that turns up at a yard sale in the sleepy suburbs.
A seemingly pleasant town will soon be rocked by murders, secrets and lots of other creepy chaos.
The Young and the Restless fans know Faith has been harassed at school over the past few months, so Lind has had a chance to play the role of a bullying victim. This Chucky series will give Lind an opportunity to switch things up and play the bully this time around.
Lind’s character will be named Lexy Taylor, an intimidating girl who considers herself to be queen bee at her school and dates the popular jock.
It sounds like Lexy will be a totally different role from Y&R’s Faith, so it’ll be interesting to see Lind show off her acting skills in a whole new way.
Zackary Arthur, Teo Briones and Björgvin Arnarson round out the group of teen leads on this exciting project. Devon Sawa has also been cast in a role that the show wants to keep quiet for the time being.
If you’re a fan of the movie franchise, you’ll be glad to know Jennifer Tilly is reprising her role as Tiffany Valentine from the films.
This project was given a straight-to-series order last year and is set to start shooting in Toronto this April. Of course, we have to consider what that means for Lind and her role on The Young and the Restless.
Since Lind is one of the teen leads and will have to film in Toronto, it’s reasonable to assume that means she’ll be exiting as Faith. Lind can’t be in two places at once, so she won’t be able to film Y&R in LA – at least for a while.
That could mean Faith will head back to boarding school, but we’ll see how things play out.
Regardless, this is fantastic news for Lind! She teased the role in a recent Instagram post addressing the project. “See you in your nightmares ;) #chuckytheseries,” Lind said.
As other updates become available, we’ll keep you posted! The Young and the Restless spoilers say more life changes should be headed Faith’s way, so stay tuned. CDL will have all the latest Young and the Restless spoilers, updates and news you need, so check back often.
