What happened to Lola on Young And The Restless?
Lola was absent from “The Young and the Restless” because Sasha Calle recently landed a major movie role. According to Deadline, the actress has been cast as Supergirl in the upcoming DC Universe film “The Flash”. This makes Calle the very first Latina Supergirl in DC Comics history. The director of the film, Andy Muschietti, seemed very impressed with Calle’s hearing. He told the outlet that she was “destined” to play the role at the time of the casting announcement.
But what does this mean for Lola? When Calle headed to the set of “The Flash,” Lola moved from Genoa City to Florida last May, where she is working on opening her own restaurant. It has not been heard or mentioned since. It’s entirely possible that Calle will reprise the role once filming is over, or the show could possibly recast the role.
It seems that the producers of “The Young and the Restless” are quite proud of the actress. “The role of ‘Supergirl’ is a perfect fit for someone of Sasha’s immense talent, and we wish her all the best as she takes on this groundbreaking role,” said Anthony Morina, executive producer of “Y&R” “, and co-executive producer and editor Josh Griffith in a joint statement posted to Soaps.com at the time. This seems to leave the door wide open for Lola’s future return, possibly in the form of Calle.
