Young and the Restless/Cricket


The character Christine Blair played by Lauralee Bell was not the first character in the show to go by the nickname "Cricket" In the summer of 1982 I started watching Y&R during my summer vacation from school.  There was a scene during a photo shoot at Jabot Cosmetics when the photographer gave instructions to a young girl that was assisting him.  He called the girl 'Cricket'  I'm sure she was in several episodes but I didn't see the show after I went back to school it was the next summer that I watched it again full time and Lauralee Bell's character was being called 'Cricket'  Do you know if the two Crickets are the same character and what the first ones real name was?

I am sorry for the delay. As far as I know, Lauralee Bell has been the only actress to ever play Cricket. I don't believe there was another actress playing Cricket.  However you could check to make sure -I don't do homework questions- so that would be my only other option for you to doublecheck. But I feel very confident in saying that it was only Lauralee playing Cricket all these years.

Please, Please, Please do not ask me any questions about any songs playing in the background on the show. I have no idea about them and do not even pay attention to them. I CAN NOT tell you what songs are played in the episodes. I CAN answer questions about people, plots and history of the show. I`m fuzzy on questions from the years 1979 - 1989. Thank you and I hope I can help you.
I don't mean to come off sounding rude, but you have no idea how many questions I get about music even though I have this paragraph about my expertise and the fact that I know nothing about the songs. Thank you in advance. Oh, and one other thing, if you do ask a question about music even after all this; I will not answer it. Sorry. 10/17/07 - BECAUSE SO MANY OF YOU KEEP ASKING ME QUESTIONS ABOUT MUSIC PLAYING ON THE SHOW, I HAVE NOW DECIDED TO GIVE RANDOM ANSWERS TO WHATEVER SONG POPS IN MY HEAD. IT WILL NOT BE THE NAME OF THE SONG FROM THE SHOW. FAIR WARNING.


Believe it or not, I have been watching since the show debuted in 1973. I was home sick from school and my mom was going to watch this new soap- the Y&R. I got hooked and have been watching ever since. I especially know the early origins of the show, characters, famililes, etc. I am also very good at predicting what will happen with characters and storylines right away, and usually have contests with my mom or sister to see who is right. But one thing I don't know is music! I don't know the songs they play or background music, so if you need answers regarding music I just can't help because I honestly don't know. I am just watching the show like you, I have no inside information about the songs they sing or that are playing in the background.
