Remember when Noah and Eden left for France after the fire? Well he's coming back a changed man.
Kevin Schmidt, who played the son of Sharon and Nick after the character's first bout of rapid aging, will not be returning to Y&R. Instead, Luke Kleintank, last seen as Eric van der Woodsen's love interest on Gossip Girl, will be taking over the role. His first day on set is tomorrow.
Luke certainly looks the part -- we think he and Dad go to the same hairstylist! -- but we're curious as to what age he'll be playing. Abby Newman, once younger than Noah, was recently made an adult with the casting of Marcy Rylan. Will Noah follow suit? Luke is 20 in real life. Can he play Abby's slightly older nephew?
And of course, with Maura West coming on as Diane Jenkins, we have to wonder ... is it time for Kyle to "grow up" too?
So many questions! What are your thoughts? Let us know in the comments.
