Y&R: GENOA CITY HONORS NEIL
To celebrate the life and times of the much-beloved Neil Winters, Y&R is devoting an entire episode to the character, who passed away in April 2019. “Y&R has done a really great job at putting together this episode that’s really unique,” praises Bryton James, who plays Neil’s adopted son, Devon. “I think it’s a really cool concept.
