Is there room for a hot, Australian leading man in Genoa City? You bet! Actor Paul Leyden has just signed with 'The Young and the Restless,' Nielsen's number one soap. Leyden, best known as Simon Frasier on 'As the World Turns,' will be playing Blake, a new character who appears on 'Y&R' canvas on Wednesday, October 6.
While the show isn't spilling the beans about Blake's motivation, it would seem likely that he's going to be involved in Cane's (Daniel Goddard) Australian adventure. Could Blake be one of the guys who wants to kill Cane for testifying against him?
Hmm ... By the way, another net rumor is that Paul may pair off with his former 'ATWT's' co-star Maura West, who has just started filming as the new Diane Jenkins.
