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.”
