Soap fave Jensen Buchanan (ex-Vicky/Marley, AW et al) is returning to daytime, thanks to a new gig with Y&R. The actress will play Elise Moxley, who is described as a member of Genoa City’s social set. “I was really honored that YOUNG AND RESTLESS would come to me and say, ‘Do you want to do this part?’ “ Buchanan tells Digest. “I wasn’t exactly playing hard to get. I was just kind of retired and was sort of finished with that chapter in my life, but then I found myself beginning a new place in my life, and my children are both grown now — which is amazing because I had them on ANOTHER WORLD — and found myself now saying, ‘I have the time, and I definitely have the passion again.’ ” She will first air on November 13. Be sure to check out her full interview in the new Digest, on sale Friday.
