What happened to Y&R’s Christine Blair?
Lauralee is one of the OG characters from The Young and The Restless that have practically grown up and seen their career develop on the series.
The actress joined the soap opera in 1983 and left in 2006 after more than two decades as Christine Blair. Her character was a prominent resident of Genoa City and was married to her longtime partner Paul Williams (interpreted by Doug Davidson).
As per CBS reports, the actress left the franchise because she “always preferred to create her own opportunities rather than have them handed to her.”
Therefore, she wanted to experiment with other characters and bagged the lead roles for her first major projects, Carpool Guy and Past Sins.
The actress then began to produce her own work, as well as take care of her two children. In 2010, Lauralee announced her return to The Young and The Restless as a recurring role and has now been in the series for more than a decade (again).
