The Young and the Restless (Y&R) spoilers reveal that the part of the already infamous Ashland Locke has been cast – and he’ll be played by a face familiar to some soap fans.
According to Deadline, Richard Burgi has been cast as Ashland aka “The Locke-ness Monster” and will be making his debut in the recurring role on March 11.
Burgi had brief roles on One Life to Live, Another World and As the World Turns in the ‘80s – followed by a substantial one on as Phillip Collier on Days of Our Lives in the early ‘90s.
Of course, General Hospital fans will recall Burgi from his 2014-2016 stint playing serial killer Paul Hornsby. It’ll be great to see Burgi take on another scary soap role now that he’s confirmed to be portraying Y&R’s Ashland Locke.
As for what Ashland will be up to in Genoa City, The Young and the Restless spoilers say this super wealthy and powerful mogul will have business on his mind initially.
There’ll be a bidding war for Ashland to make a decision on, so it seems this will be related to Cyaxares – the media company that Billy Abbott (Jason Thompson) originally wanted before Victor Newman (Eric Braeden) decided to pounce.
However, Ashland will also be caught up in the revelation of some explosive secrets – and one of them will no doubt involve Harrison Locke’s paternity.
Ashland doesn’t know Kyle Abbott (Michael Mealor) is the man Tara Locke (Elizabeth Leiner) cheated with, but that bomb should drop down the road along with the news that Harrison is actually an Abbott.
Burgi seems like a fantastic choice to play Ashland based on his style of acting and his soap experience. We should mention that Burgi has plenty of primetime experience as well.
You might recognize Burgi from his roles on shows like Desperate Housewives, 24, The Oath, Grand Hotel, One Tree Hill and many more.
As Burgi’s first airdate in GC gets closer, there’ll be other exciting details to pass along. We’ll bring you updates as other Y&R info becomes available.
The Young and the Restless spoilers say Ashland should become Kyle’s worst nightmare, so stay tuned to see how Kyle and Summer Newman (Hunter King) deal with the vengeful chaos.
