Who is Y&R’s new cast member Kelsey Wang? Everything you need to know about her character “Allie”
This March, Y&R viewers will be seeing a brand new character on screen, a familiar face, who arrives in Genoa City playing an eye-catching role. Kelsey Wang, a former General Hospital star, has been slated to appear in the role of Allie on Y&R in the upcoming episodes. Spoilers already tease that the new lady in town will fascinate an eligible bachelor. But that won’t be all. Let’s find out who is Allie and what brings her to GC.
Will Noah Newman get a new girlfriend on Y&R?
Y&R confirmed last week that actress Kelsey Wang had been cast in the role of Allie. Y&R did not explain much about the newcomer but revealed some vital information about her, saying Allie is “a mysterious, young professional who catches the eye of one of Genoa City’s eligible bachelors.”
This scoop has led fans to assume if the bachelor they are pointing to is Nick and Sharon’s son Noah. As we know, the young lad has been pining over his ex-girlfriend Tessa ever since he returned home from London.
When Noah was in London, he had a girlfriend, whom he mentioned a couple of times on the show. So speculations are Allie might be the same woman he was dating back in London. However, if that is not the case, fans still believe that they may end up as a pair in the coming days. Fans strongly wish to see Noah move on in his life and Allie may just be that girl who brings him out of his bad days.

Is Allie the daughter of Keemo Volien Abbott?
Another speculation is that Allie could be related to a very prominent family in town – preferably the Abbotts. In a recent episode, Jack and Phyllis’s online digging led them to devastating news about Jack’s elder son, Keemo Volien Abbott. They found an obituary of Keemo which stated that he died three weeks ahead of February 25, 2022, in Los Angeles.
Keemo was last seen on Y&R nearly 25 years ago in April 1996 when he and his half-sister Mai Luan jetted away to Vietnam. Keemo’s name surfacing out of the blue has fans wondering if Allie is related to Keemo, perhaps very closely like a daughter.
Y&R is yet to say confirm any of these details. But don’t worry! You won’t need to wait longer to find out who Allie truly is as she will be making her debut on Thursday, March 10. Mark the date on your calendar as you won’t want to miss the episode.
