The Young And The Restless Alum Miles Gaston Villanueva Gets A New Job

Miles Gaston Villanueva left The Young and the Restless (Y&R) in 2016 and has been pretty busy with prime-time roles ever since. His newest role could take his career to a place he never imagined. Villanueva was cast as Lyle Menendez in Law & Order True Crime limited series and the reviews say that Miles gives a brilliant performance.

Miles left Y&R in 2016

Villanueva played Luca Santori for three years. He was escorted to prison after he admitted to Summer Newman (Hunter King) he sabotaged the oil rig. The truth was, he was abruptly written out of the soap opera after he joined the cast of Jane the Virgin. He went on to appear on The Fosters and Rosewood. It’s safe to assume that his Y&R role took his career to the next level.
