‘The Young and the Restless’ spoilers indicate that former daytime actress Catherine Bruhier has joined the CBS daytime drama for a short story arc. Soaps.com reported that Bruhier was hired by the CBS team to appear in an upcoming three episodes.
According to the site, Bruhier had been tapped to play the role of Dr. Powell. Other than that the details surrounding her casting is very limited. It is unknown when her first air date will be and who she will have scenes with.

Bruhier was hired for just a three episode story arc but we know how the soap opera world operates. Could her role eventually lead to her landing a contract on the CBS daytime drama series?
For those who are not aware Bruhier played a couple daytime roles before. ‘Days of Our Lives’ fans may remember her for her role as Andrea. ‘Port Charles’ fans will remember her for her recurring role as Mrs. Hartman.
