Y&R Star On Her Exit

YOUNG AND RESTLESS's on set party to celebrate 38 years on the air was a particularly special — but bittersweet — occasion for Emily O'Brien (Jana). It was announced earlier this week that she is leaving the show. "The Young and the Restless has been around for 38 years and I feel very proud to have been a part of it for five of those years," the actress shares. Does she have post-Y&R plans? "I'll definitely be pursuing New York theater," she answers. "As for now, I'm going to see if I can get anywhere with film. But New York is on my mind. Broadway is a passion of mine." At press time, a last airdate was not announced for O'Brien.
