Y&R’S Camryn Grimes takes on exciting new Disney venture

The Young And The Restless‘ Camryn Grimes loves all things Star Wars, especially Disneyland’s Galaxy’s Edge as proven by her Instagram page which is full of photos from the theme park.

After all, her Instagram bio clearly states, even before her role on Y&R that she is a “Gryffindor alum, Force user” and a “Disneyphile.” However, it appears her connection to Disney is about to get a whole lot deeper as she posted a photo from Disney’s D23 fan event with some exciting news.

In the photo, Camryn can be seen sitting cross-legged, with a big smile in front of a giant statue of Mickey Mouse. In the caption, she wrote, “D23 and me,” adding, “As a lifelong Disney fan, this weekend was a literal dream come true for me. While I can’t reveal all just yet, I’m so excited for this journey and what’s to come!”

This led fans to erupt into speculation with many assuming she is working on a new Disney project. Not long ago Grimes shared a photo of her in front of a poster for one of the Disney Channel’s newest cartoons, Hamster & Gretel, as she captioned it “Feelin’ kind of villainous.” However, she did not confirm any involvement in the show which follows a girl and her pet hamster gaining superpowers.

Camryn Grimes even had a Disney-themed proposal

Others have guessed that the actress will get married at the Disney theme park which she regularly visits.

After all, Camryn Grimes announced her engagement to Brock Powell on Instagram by quoting the 2009 Disney movie, Up. Camryn captioned her Instagram post: “You and me, we’re in a club now,” which is Ellie’s quote from the film.

The couple both added to the end of their captions “only up from here,” which they used as matching hashtags on the posts.

Grimes’ proposal was Up-inspired as the film starts with a montage of Carl and Ellie Fredricksen’s whirlwind romance, which lasts a lifetime. The proposal was complete with balloons, a replica of Carl and Ellie’s house, and aviator hats with matching goggles.

It is clear the couple are massive fans of Disney so the theme park would be a perfect setting for the pair’s wedding.

Who was Camryn Grimes on The Young And The Restless?

Camryn joined The Young And The Restless in 1997 as Cassie Newman and became the youngest winner of the Daytime Emmy Award for Outstanding Younger Actress in 2000.

Cassie was tragically killed off in 2005 but viewers were over the moon when she returned to the soap in 2014 as Mariah Copeland, who turned out to be Cassie’s long-lost twin.
