‘The Young and the Restless’ hires former ‘One Life to Live’ actor Trevor St. John

For 10 years, St. John entertained fans with his portrayal of Todd on One Life to Live. St. John had big shoes to fill following Roger Howarth but quickly won the fans’ approval. After the show’s cancellation in 2013, St. John went on to star in many TV shows and films, including the CW series Roswell: New Mexico.

After a nine-year absence, the actor returns to his soap opera roots. According to Deadline.com, St. John will debut on The Young and the Restless later this fall. As for his character, details are being kept under wraps.

Speculation is on who Trevor St. John’s character will be

Although St. John’s role is a secret, The Young and the Restless fans are already speculating on the character’s identity.

One theory is that he could be a Dylan McAvoy recast. Dylan is the son of Paul Williams (Doug Davidson) and Niki Newman (Melody Thomas Scott), who was previously played by General Hospital star Steve Burton. Dylan’s last appearance came in January 2017, when he entered witness protection.

Another theory is that St. John’s character might be connected to Diane Jenkins (Susan Walters). Nikki and Phyllis Summers (Michelle Stafford) are digging into her past and might unravel secrets. St. John could be a former lover or someone Diane conned.

The next idea floating around is St. John is a new cop. Speculation is he’ll be brought in to help Chance Chancellor (Conner Floyd) investigate the Newmans’ involvement in Ashland Locke’s (Robert Newman) death.

The final theory is that St. John’s role is a new love interest for Sharon Newman (Sharon Case). Recent rumors have circulated that the show canceled a reunion with Nick Newman (Joshua Morrow) and are bringing in a new guy for her.
