The Rosales family is expanding by one more member when Sasha Calle joins the cast of THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS as Arturo and Rey’s younger sister, Lola! The character is slated to make her debut in the episode airing on Friday, September 14. “Oh man, has it been hard to keep this a secret,” she gushed on Instagram after the news broke. “With overwhelming joy and honor, I want to thank Sony, CBS, Y&R, CBS Daytime, executive producer Mal Young and everyone involved with this beautiful, beautiful opportunity.
“Mom, this one’s for you!” Calle continued. “I wouldn’t be here without your love and support. There were times of heartache and struggle, but those times are now changing. I love you! To my young girls and boys who are told that dreams are only dreams. I want you to see that they are achievable! Lord knows how hard it’s been, but please believe and continue to push towards what you love! Because God and this universe will bless you. I promise you it’s worth the fight.”
Y&R will be Calle’s daytime debut. She has appeared in a bunch of short films and played Virginia in the YouTube series SOCIALLY AWKWARD. She’s also musically inclined, singing a song in the short film Rogue Tiger, so perhaps Lola could find herself signed to Devon’s record label? And what will the young woman think about Arturo’s relationship with Abby? Or Rey’s sneaking around town digging up dirt on J.T.? “Tune in every day to see Lola Rosales and the Rosales family as they are welcomed to Genoa City!” Calle urged, adding, “Woah, this is surreal!”
