The Young and the Restless: How Old Is Doug Davidson?

Back in October, Doug opened up about the possibility of seeing Paul Williams recast. When one Twitter follower began the discussion by writing, “I think the original poster is referring to a few recent mentions about the Danny/Christine storyline that is currently brewing.

The Young and the Restless: What’s Next For Doug?
In September, he also admitted why he will never come back to The Young and the Restless. Speaking to Soap Hub in a new interview, the actor admitted that there was a lot of confusion regarding the decision to let Doug go. He explained, “ Jill [Farren Phelps, who came on in 2012] and I had a really good working relationship. They made her hire her replacement. I guess her replacement was doing what Sony [Pictures Television, which produces Y&R] had issued. He was the one that made the decision [to take me off contract].”
Doug continued, “He had a history of cutting legendary characters from his shows. He made the claim that nobody has to know [I’d been fired]. I went to a producer three times that year in April, June, and another time. I was saying if he doesn’t write for me, it’s going to raise a red flag. I’m under my guarantee. I was told not to worry.”
