Y&R ACTOR ADDRESSES ON-SCREEN ABSENCE
■ It’s been months since the character of Ravi has been seen on Y&R and his portrayer, Abhi Sinha, addressed his on-screen absence on social media. “I want to thank every one of my fans who for months have been asking about Ravi’s return to Y&R,” he posted. “Honestly, I don’t know the answer. I was privileged to work with some amazing soap vets like @eileendavidsonofficial [ex-ashley], @kristoffstjohn [Neil], Peter Bergman [Jack], @ginatognoni [Phyllis],@theoriginal danielhall [ex-scott], @ryanashton [ex-zack], @christianjleblanc [Michael], @katelinderyr [Esther] and the legendary Eric Braeden [Victor]. I’ve been fortunate to make some lifelong friendships.” The actor also reflected, “Things like this used to derail me. I would get so upset about not booking work especially after getting to the last stages of auditions, producer sessions and screen tests. I didnt realize how trivial those problems are in the grand scheme of life .... I love acting and I wouldn’t trade it for anything else in the world. But I realize now, that I won’t let rejection or second-guessing myself define or upset me anymore. Those things don’t control my happiness or who I am.” To read Sinha’s post in its entirety, go to to his Instagram profile: abhidabi.
