Earlier today fans of 'The Young and the Restless' were shocked to learn that one of their favorites, Greg Rikaart is set to exit the CBS daytime drama as Kevin Fisher, a role he spent the last 14 years playing. Upon news of his exit, Rikaart took to his social media accounts with his goodbye/thank you message which highlights that his journey is just beginning.
We're surely going to miss him! Check out his entire goodbye message below:
Fourteen years ago, I booked a two-week long gig on The Young and the Restless. In my wildest dreams, I could never have imagined what it would turn into: a career-defining experience that has brought me so much happiness and fulfillment. Playing Kevin and watching him evolve over the years has mirrored my real life in so many ways. We both found love, both became dads and we both have more gray hair now than we did in 2003. I have such love and fondness for the cast and crew of Y&R that when I watch Kevin enjoying himself in scenes, it's hard to know where he ends and Greg begins. At the moment it is unclear what lies ahead for Kevin and I, as we will be saying goodbye to Genoa City for a while. I am sad to leave a place I hold so dear but also really excited about what the future holds. I cannot overstate how much gratitude I have to all of you who have been such loud cheerleaders for me. You've all enriched my life. So stick around. The journey is just beginning. :)
