Clara York has appeared on numerous primetime serials with her most significant role being that of Judi Edelman on the mini-series "Homestuck". She also briefly made an appearance on 'The Young and the Restless' in 2017 when she was cast in the role of Annette Leeds. While this may have been her first daytime role, York spoke with us and revealed her hopes to do more. When we asked about her time on 'Y&R' she highlighted, "I enjoyed working on Y&R with a passion! Since I’m a theater actor and accustomed to learning tons of dialogue in a short period of time, it would be a perfect fit for me to be a regular on it. I’d love to play Annette Leeds again because she had all of the regulars wrapped around her little finger! I think she could come back in a more personal way, like perhaps doing something very naughty...like being a “sugarmama” to some of the younger men on the show! I love playing a kind of role reversal like that to knock the usual male stereotypes out the way!”
So, would she consider doing more daytime television work? Of course, she would as she revealed, 'I’ve always had a soft spot for General Hospital since my friend Demi Moore was on it. I think I’d be a great as a shady real estate investor or perhaps a corrupt art collector. I love playing a strong trustworthy matriarch with a twist!”
She then talked about her time on “Homestruck” and sadly revealed that “There aren’t any other seasons coming up. I’m sad about that because Judi was firmly in my wheelhouse as the helicopter mom to a college-age son!”
While she couldn’t talk much about one particular gig on the horizon as she disclosed “I am up for something amazing but I can’t talk about it yet,” she dished on what fans can look forward to. “My film Heed The Call directed by Laura G. Chirinos premiered Friday night. It is set in 1942 when the Women’s Auxiliary Army Corps was first formed. I play Florence, a repressed upper-middle-class mother to a 20-year-old girl and a teenage autistic son. At the time, women who joined the army were seen as prostitutes and I am strongly against my daughter joining for fear that she will never marry, or marry too late in her life ending up with an autistic child like I did. My character was the antagonist and it was a great part because she was really torn between pushing the boundaries for women vs. staying in the safe confines of the homemaker.
I also have a film called In Our Time directed by a pioneer in conceptual art - David Lamelas which is premiering at the Getty Museum in May. I play a tough, embittered Hollywood agent who visits the museum to see a famous painting and relive a love affair that dissolved and broke my heart.”
So, fans would you love to see York on ‘GH’ or ‘Y&R’ in a more prominent role?
