The Young and the Restless Star Christel Khalil Looks Back At All Of Lily’s Good Times And Bad

Speaking to TV Insider in a new interview, Christel admitted that she began working with some of the soap’s biggest veterans from the moment she got on the set. Christel said, “My first scene was with Victoria Rowell [Drucilla]. I remember being nervous and wanting to do a good job. My first few years, it was about introducing the character. I was a kid. I wasn’t quite old enough to be a part of the teen storylines. Around 15 or 16, I did the chlamydia storyline with Greg Rikaart [Kevin Fisher]. It was a great storyline and I think they did it really well. I remember doing PSAs [public service announcements] after shooting scenes related to the chlamydia storyline. It was great working with Greg and it was the first time I got a Daytime Emmy nomination. I submitted the scenes where Lily told her parents what had happened with Kevin.”

Christhel also recalled the moment that Lily fell in love with Daniel, who was played by Michael Graziadei. She said, “It was amazing. I love him so much. We always had fun together. We had great scenes together. [Michael] is hilarious.”

When asked about Lily being a mom of two teens with her ex-husband Cane (ex-Daniel Goddard), she said, “I was very shocked. It was very surprising for me. It was weird. The kids were as tall – actually, taller – than I am. [Laughs] I wore heels so Lily was taller than Mattie [Lexie Stevenson]. They were 18 or 19 in real-life and I was 30. It was a little strange but [laughs] you gotta do what you gotta do.”
