The Young And The Restless: Kevin Schmidt Returning As Noah Newman? (UPDATED!)


A familiar face.

Same Day Update:

Soap Opera Digest is reporting that Kevin will indeed be returning to reprise his role on April 14.

Posted Earlier:

Back in February 2010, The Young and the Restless let actor Kevin Schmidt go to recast his character, Noah Newman, with Luke Kleintank. Luke hasn’t been seen since January 25 when Noah took off to New York City after receiving a record deal. Kevin recently commented, “Spent this morning in a familiar place my friends! Felt nice to be visiting. More details to come!”

Could this mean the actor will be returning to Genoa City to reprise his role? Stay tuned as Soap Opera Fan Blog will keep our readers updated on any further developments. In the meantime, vote in our poll to let us know if you’d like to see Kevin return…

    Please let Heather go she is not a good acter. Please keep Jana we love her and she is a better acter then Heather. put Jana and Kevin back togehter they are good togehter we love them. let Heather GO DO NOT LIKE HER.

  2. From Tywana Davis

    Please let Heather go she not a good actoress. Please bring the old Heather back. Janna let her go to her story line is not going anywhere.

  3. From Bbk

    Totally agree! I loved Chloe with chance.

  4. From Marcella

    Can’t wait to have Kevin Schmidt back! I know that they cast Luke because they aged Noah so what will this mean now that Kevin is back (although the actor really is 21 years old)

    On the Chloe/Kevin thing: Talk about ZERO chemistry. Not good together. I don’t exactly want Chance back with her either (I thought Ronan and her were caliente) but Heather is gross and needs to go away.

  5. From Linda willoughby

    I agree with Connie and Tywana – LET HEATHER GO – Jana is twice the actress she is. I’ve never cared for this Heather’s acting but it just seems to be getting worse. Her acting just gets on my nerves! Bring the quirky Jana back with the multi-colored hair!

  6. From Linda willoughby

    Leave Luke Kleintank in as Noah – he is SOOOO much better looking and is a much better actor – not so stiff. He stepped in and took over like a pro- KEEP LUKE – DO NOT BRING KEVIN BACK!

  7. From lisa

    Jana should leave dont like character. Dead end for her unless She can really move on and get a life. I would like to see nick happy. But to use his kids as a pawn . Thats not nicks personality . Hes a lover not a fighter. He will loss if he fights. would be nice to c jacks son kemo back.

  8. From cristina

    I agree with everyone about Heather, they should really bring back the old heather. This new heather ruined the character because the character was bitchy and now shes to nice and soft so therefor she needs to leave the show! and i disagree with everyone about chloe and kevin, i love them together, there so cute!

  9. From Richard

    Someone mentioned Y&R wanted to age Noah by hiring Luke to replace Kevin.Kevin is actually 2 years older than Luke ironically.
    And I agree with everyone that the actress playing Heather needs to be let go.She is horrible! I can’t stand her.And why are they letting Emily (Janna) go! She is a fun character.

  10. From hbag

    Heather should go; Billy should stay with Victoria; get rid of Jana before she finds the baby – Victoria has had such poor luck that she deserves the baby; Everyone knows that Primrose is a baby stolen from Rose, and Rose is the person who took Chance from Nina; that should come out; Mrs. C is the best on the show; take Tucker down a notch and hopefully Ashley will find out what a creep he is. Now we have Sophia’s pregnancy – can’t be Neil’s baby because back when Dru got pregnant for Malcolm, Olivia told her that Neil was shooting blanks; and doesn’t anyone clean on this show – isn’t it time to find the note that Cane left that blew down under the dresser table in the livingroom.

  11. From Linda in Tennessee

    Get rid of current Heather. Glad to see current Noah will be gone.

  12. From Linda Gray

    I agree with everyone else the current Heather is terrible and boring! She doesn’t even look like Paul!

  13. From Pam

    What happened to the note that Cane left that blew down under the dresser table in the livingroom?

  14. From Helen Herrin

    Please get rid of that ditzy Heather. What a terrible actress.Can’t stand to see HER with My handsome Chance!!! Really liked seeing Kevin back as Noah. He fits the part.

  15. From Tracy

    Yes I agree with Linda and Twanna, please let go of this new Heather. Vail Bloom (the original Heather) was so much more likeable and a better actress as well. She fit the role of Paul’s daughter.

    I’m so happy to see Kevin Schmidt reprise his role.

    Yes, I liked Chloe and Chance together, but Chloe and Kevin is starting to grow on me.

  16. From Sexy Sexy

    I think @Linda is Luke. Let Kevin come back he meshed with the family much better. Let Sharon commit suicide, since she can’t live without a man. Please put Nick and Phyllis back together, their chemistry is out of this world.

  17. From tina

    Heather was a much actress on AMC, but the actress that plays Binks NOW is doing an excellent job. Too bad they are cancelling AMC. I grew up with both shows and have always liked Y and R better. Heather’s role is boring. She just cannot do much with it. Being pregnant in real life could be the reason for inability to give it her all and all. I wonder if Y AND R have any room for any AMC actresses and actors. Would love to see Susan, Angie, and Darnell on the show.

  18. From V

    1. Get RID of HEATHER! Her acting is awful!
    2. Definitely get RID of LUKE – he is just scary looking – YUK!
    3. Janna should stay and get back with Kevin – Chloe doesn’t fit with Kevin at all!

  19. From Nina

    Wow this whole show is starting to fall apart. Get Nick & Sharon, Victor & Nikki back together again. There is enough crap going on in the real world so we need more fun, loving and happy things on this soap. What is up with the story line about Victor and his kids taking everything and suing him. We need more family things going on and it was great to see Victor/Nikki together with Faith. That is what should be going on in this soap. We watch these soap to get away from all the crap that is going on in all are lives and what is happeing in the goverment. So get back to some of the things that made YR so popular. Get rid of Heather and her whining voice, also get rid of Adam. Some of what is going on is so far out there it is hard to watch or even enjoy!! Thanks and hope there are some changes for the good coming. Please give Sharon a break and a better story line because she is a good actress and it was great when they were all together(Cassie, Nick, Noah, and now Faith)totally when off that story line. Thanks and I have been watching YR for many many years and we have a group fan club where I live that keep up on this show and discuss this about it. Thanks

  20. From BabyGirl

    Yeah I don’t like this Heather either, is she pregnant or what cuz it looks like she is getting bigger too. I’m glad the original Noah is back I think he was a better actor than this recent one and looks like he’s part of the family too. I also like Billy I feel if wants to take a break they should make it to where he has to leave town for a while so he can come back, but only if Billy Miller comes back. I really hate that he wants to leave because I loved his character and his acting!!!! Hopefully the kill off Jana before they find out about the baby cuz Victoria deserves to be happy especially after all that she has been through!!!

  21. From Linda

    Pam- I was thinking the same thing! what happened to the note?

  22. From Elaine

    Please let Eden Reigal as Heather go ____. Please bring the old Heather back. Vail Bloom is her name and she played the role from 2007 – 2010. a role that she received an emmy nomination from in 2008. She was let go for a recast which was ridiculous. At least Vail was believable as a DA. The current actor just isn’t believable that she works. Janna needs to go. Her character used to have humor and whimsy but now is so annoying but that was the writers idea to change her character not the actor.

  23. From Elaine

    yes good to have kevin back! I can’t believe I am saying this but I really like the Adam /Sharon as couple. The brought out the best in eachother but being together brought out the worst in everyone else. Maybe with her “death” they can chill and let her be happy when she comes back to life

  24. From Cathy

    So glad Kevin Schmidt is coming back! He’s great, and loved seeing him in Alvin and the Chipmunks Squeakquel.

  26. From Angela

    • So, so glad to see the old (Noah) Kevin Schmidt back in the show, he really fits the part of Noah. Please convince Billy to stay with Y & R love him and Victoria together and he’s a great actor and it doesn’t hurt that he’s a cutie. And I can’t imaging Jana gone out of the Y & R I love her role especially when she’s with Kevin. Please find and bring back the previous Heather (Vail Bloom) she pretty, believable that she can be Paul’s’ real daughter, and she’s a great actress. Concur with the majority I DO NOT LOOK THIS HEATHER she doesn’t fit the part ______. Kind a liking the new veterinarian for Sharon although I am and Nick and Sharon, Victor and Nikki fan. But please don’t put that Phyllis back with Nick don’t like that mix and get rid of that Adam.

  28. From Pat

    Sorry to see Jana go off her rocker again. She deserves better. Love, love Adam and Sharon together. Love to see characters improve. Nick is a sap. Phyllis is a pain. I clean toilets when her scenes come on. Everything she accuses Sharon of, she is more likely guilty of (like needing a man). Phyllis never sleeps alone. Her meddling with the baby secret is plain mean. Get rid of Phyllis and Heather. I actually tuned into this website to find out what happened to Ted.

  29. From mindy

    I don’t like the character Heather or Sharon she is needy and whiny. The Cane and Lily story is out there. However I love Cane he is awesome. Also the Nick character (joshua morrow) is hot.
