    Original cast member Janice Lynde will be returning to The Young and the Restless next month. The actress was last spotted in Genoa City in 2018.

    Intereresting. I wonder who will be connected to the Brooks family. Ashland? Sally? Anyone else on the canvas that's not connected elsewhere?

      She will probably return to perform at the wedding. But whose wedding? Victoria/Ashland or Kyle/Summer?

        This is very interesting, finally someone from Y&R's real past. Her connection to Theo could play in.

          Oh, the beautiful memories of the Brooks sisters. I was in HS and loved all but Peggy, the youngest one, LOL.
          Leslie Brooks is a soap icon to me,

            I wonder if Ashland will be a Brooks relative too.

              I never cared for Lesley. They laid it on really thick with her being the fragile good girl who could do no wrong.

              I floved Lori though.

              Too bad Theo is gone.

                Yes,, she was portrayed as a "good" girl; I still remember the scene when Lori caught her in the big lie, and said:"just how pregnant are you"?

              It will be good to see Lesley Brooks. I loved Janice Lynde as Lesley Brooks. I could never fully accepted the actress who replaced her.

                Me neither. Looking forward to seeing Janice Lynde.

                I didn't like Victoria Mallory (RIP) as Leslie, but she was a Broadway star and an amazing talent in her own right. Sometimes recasts are tricky.

              Since she is scheduled for mid-October, that is the Victoria/Ashland wedding. I presume she will perform at that. Since Victor and Nikki went to Italy to see her, that makes sense.

                OMG! Could Ashland be Leslie's biological son Brooks Prentis? Leslie had a son with her sister Lorie's husband Lance Prentice (at one time played by John McCook!) and he ended up with Lorie and Lance to raise. Hmmmmm... That was in the 80s, so he'd only technically be 40s now, but you know how they accelerate times.

                Edit: The "mother" Ashland" said passed away may have been Lorie Brooks?

                  He's too old to be Brooks - but I do wish a vengeful Brooks would have returned to target Victor for 'stealing' the family company, Prentiss Industries at some point....but Brooks would be about 40 now....not 60-ish...

                Since Ashland's history is shrouded in secrecy, I too am wondering if Leslie Brooks is somehow related to Ashland. Very interesting indeed having her return.

                  It's good to finally see one of the Brooks family that I have read about for years.

                    This is fine but I hope Ashland isn't related to anyone. I like that the show has non related characters to big families.

                        She's a concert pianist.

                      I don't thinkl Leslie will have anything to do with Ashland. Just a fleeting moment when she appears to play for Victoria's wedding.
