Fen­more re­turns to THE YOUNG & THE REST­LESS this Christ­mas with a few sur­prises for his par­ents, Lau­ren and Michael — but Max Ehrich won’t be repris­ing the role!

CBS Soaps In Depth - - INS & OUT -

The In Depth Story: On Novem­ber 9, Ehrich took to so­cial me­dia to tell fans that while he had been asked to re­turn by the soap, he’d had to make the dif­fi­cult de­ci­sion to de­cline the of­fer be­cause of the fact that he’d re­cently been tar­geted by a stalker!

“I was sup­posed to do a spe­cial stint back on the show this past month,” he wrote in a post­ing to fans, “but due to the crazy stalker is­sue I had, it was un­safe at the time and I had to post­pone. Un­for tu­nately, due to the pro­duc­tion sched­ule, I am sad­dened to say I was un­able to come back [to the show] at the time.”

In Oc­to­ber, the ac­tor went pub­lic about his scare, re­veal­ing that he’d been forced to go into hid­ing after a real­tor be­came ob­sessed with him while he’d been house-hunt­ing, even al­legedly pulling a gun when Ehrich re­jected his ad­vances.

The ac­tor then be­gan trav­el­ing with body­guards and wrote in a fol­low- up post that he had been “stalked on In­sta­gram by this per­son for two months prior to the in­ci­dent. So­cial me­dia is a

great tool, but please be care­ful shar­ing your lo­ca­tions. Live your life, but be cau­tious.”

Due to Ehrich’s per­sonal sit­u­a­tion and Y& R’s sto­ry­line plans, the soap re­cast the role of Fen with Zach Tin­ker. The day­time new­bie — who ap­peared on NBC’S LAW & OR­DER TRUE CRIME: THE ME­NEN­DEZ MUR­DERS as Erik’s friend, Craig — will make his de­but on Mon­day, De­cem­ber 3.
