Soap World - - THE GOSS! -

After 14 years play­ing the iconic, pop­u­lar and some­times-dis­turbed Kevin Fisher on The Young and the Rest­less, GREG RIKAART has been fired from the show. He is film­ing his last scenes this month and his exit is ex­pected to air in Au­gust.

Rea­sons for Rikaart’s dis­missal are un­known. “Four­teen years ago, I booked a two-week long gig on The Young and the Rest­less,” he said in an In­sta­gram post. “In my wildest dreams, I could never have imag­ined what it would turn into: a ca­reer-defin­ing ex­pe­ri­ence that has brought me so much happiness and ful­fill­ment. At the mo­ment it is un­clear what lies ahead for Kevin and I, as we will be say­ing good­bye to Genoa City for a while. I am sad to leave a place I hold so dear but also re­ally ex­cited about what the fu­ture holds.”
