Cait Fairbanks is joining the cast of THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS as Tessa Porter!
The soap confirmed the casting of the performer in the role of Tessa, a free-spirited, fun-loving singer. Fairbanks will make her first appearance on the episode scheduled to air Friday, March 24.
This will be Fairbanks’ first daytime role, although the actress has made appearances on shows like CSI: NY, TWO AND A HALF MEN, and THE MIDDLE. She began her career on the stage and has shared some of her original music on her YouTube channel. Check out her amazing song, “Echoes,” right here!

Y&R has been casting quite a few new roles lately, with Darnell Kirkwood recently making his debut as Jordan, Daniel Hall about to make his first appearance as Scott, and Laur Allen first airing as Juliet on Tuesday, Feb. 28. However, Fairbank’s character of Tessa is a contract role with the soap, so if her storyline takes off, she’ll likely be sticking around for quite a bit!
