That's actor Jay Montalvo playing Lola's father, Adrian Rosales, on THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS. He made his debut in the Aug. 16 episode when he crashed his baby girl's wedding ceremony. The soap had kept the casting under wraps so that viewers would be just as surprised by his arrival as the characters!
Although her family tried to keep Adrian hidden, Lola caught sight of her dad and although he made an impassioned speech, she couldn't find it in her heart to forgive him and was clearly upset that he had come to her wedding uninvited.
Y&R isn't actually Montalvo's first appearance in daytime, as he played D.A. Benjamin Lazaro for a handful of episodes on ABC sudser GENERAL HOSPITAL back in 2013. Viewers might also recognize him as Emilio Castillo from HACIENDA HEIGHTS or from his guest appearances on series like SPIN CITY, AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D., or JANE THE VIRGIN. Montalvo has also appeared on the big screen in films like Get Shorty and S.W.A.T..
Lola doesn't have the best relationship with her father, as he cheated on her mother. But perhaps Adrian can find a way to make peace with his daughter (and the rest of his family) and make a fresh start? You'll have to stay tuned to see how the storyline continues to unfold.
