The Young and the Restless spoilers recently revealed that Doug Davidson was officially done at the CBS soap. After three years of mystery surrounding his status on Y&R, the actor took to social media last month and announced he had cleaned out his dressing room and visited the set for the last time.
Where has Paul Williams been? That’s actually a great question. Despite the fact that The Young and the Restless fans have not seen him since 2020, no one really has addressed his absence.
The Young And The Restless Spoilers – What Happened To Paul Williams
With crimes being committed left and right in Genoa City, and Christine Williams (Lauralee Bell) even getting some screen time, it’s odd that we haven’t seen Paul.
Paul’s daughter Heather Stevens (Vail Bloom) just returned to Genoa City for the first time since 2012. Isn’t it odd she didn’t share any scenes with her own father?
Doug Davidson has been very vocal on social media about how unhappy he was about his recurring status, the actor was bumped down back in 2018.
The soap certainly wasn’t writing Paul off the canvas for lack of talent. Davidson was basically publicly begging to come back.
A popular theory among Young and the Restless fans on social media is that there was more going on than what meets the eye.
Davidson was blatantly being ignored by TPTB, and no one from the network would ever comment on his status or where Paul Williams was.
Y&R Spoilers – Doug Davidson Leaves The Young And The Restless
Was Y&R just waiting for Doug Davidson to leave on his own accord so that they could recast the role?
Now that Davidson cleaned out his dressing room and announced his exit, technically the soap opera can say that the veteran actor quit.
Rumor has it the soap opera has been quietly reaching out to casting agencies and are on the hunt for an older character matching Williams’ description.
