The Young and the Restless Spoilers – Jacob Aaron Gaines Will Connect with Several Residents
According to Gaines, very early on he was told about the late Kristoff St. John who played Moses‘ father, Neil Winters. According to him, “Bryton James (Devon Hamilton) sat me down and talked to me about Kristoff. It’s a very sad story but I’m honored to be playing Neil’s son and to show Y&R fans a little piece of him. I’m thrilled to be able to do that. Kristoff’s story hit me pretty hard and I’m sure I won’t understand the true gravity of it until I’m further into playing Moses. For now, it’s a huge privilege for me.”
Y&R Spoilers – Jacob Aaron Gaines Did His Own Audition Tape
Gaines recalled how he taped his own audition for Y&R, one of the procedures that has been amended due to COVID.
“I did it with the help of my mom, which is always a struggle. I mean, I love my mom but her acting skills could use some work,” he said. “I was only sent two pages of sides, so we went into the garage and the whole taping went quick and easy. We used my phone and that was a breeze. My family has been really strict with the Covid restrictions, so it was a blessing to have that technology to pull off such a job.”

The Young And The Restless Spoilers – What Happens Next In Genoa City?
Gaines spilled a bit more about his audition scenes and it portends that he and Faith Newman (Alyvia Alyn Lind, soon to be Reylynn Caster) will be sharing more scenes together.
According to Gaines, “I was told that Moses wants to be a doctor, so he’s trying to charm Faith at the coffeehouse and make sure she’s okay. He has a soft spot for her and won’t let anyone push her around.”
That’s a good thing because poor Faith has been bullied recently and it has led her to some scary actions and disastrous consequences.
