Young and the Restless (Y&R) star, Alyvia Alyn Lind scored a major role in the Netflix dramedy, “Daybreak.” Since the announcement that she scored the gig and her family temporarily moved to Albuquerque, New Mexico, the Y&R fans have been in panic mode at the thought of losing this talented actress as Faith Newman. So, how will her new role affect Faith? Here’s what we know so far.
Alyvia Alyn Lind’s New Role
Netflix announced they cast Young and the Restless star Lind as the lead in the post-apocalyptic dramedy, “Daybreak.” The show will feature a cast of misfits fighting in a world of zombies and gangs. Lind will play Angelica, a 12-year-old pyromaniac. Matthew Broderick was a cast as a lead in the series and he will play a school principal.
“I’m so excited to announce that I will be a part of this amazing show with an amazing cast and crew,” Alyvia wrote on Instagram.

Young and the Restless Status
Lind’s status on Young and the Restless has always been recurring so far there has been a decision to recast the role. Faith tends to pop in and out of the show. Her presence is not needed every day, so it is likely the Young and the Restless writers have a game plan on how to work around her taping schedule.
Many Y&R fans would like it if they would recast the role. Based on the other children on the show, Faith should be older. She should be, at the very least, in high school. However, she is still a young child on the soapy drama.
As of now, CBS will not recast the role. She will continue to play Faith and the series will work around her schedule. Soap fans, are you happy Faith will be staying on Y&R, at least for now?
