Laur Allen didn’t watch television while growing up, so she didn’t know much about Y&R when she landed the role of Juliet. However, the same can’t be said for Allen’s relatives! “I have a lot of family in Canada, and they’ve been watching the show for years!” shares the actress with a smile. “One of my aunts grew up watching it. And right after I started appearing, one of my cousins texted me a picture of a Crimson Lights coffee mug that she found in her mother’s cabinet. I’m like, ‘How can I get one of those?’” Of course, Allen has been teased a lot about her character’s growing baby bump. “They’re coming to Los Angeles, so they’re making Juliet jokes, like, ‘Oh, you can’t have too much fun because you’re pregnant now!’”
“They were so thrilled when they heard I was going to be on Y&R,” shares Allen of her Canadian relatives.
