Shemar Moore praised the late Kristoff St. John (ex-Neil) for his accomplishments in the entertainment industry. Moore discussed returning to The Young and the Restless on Thursday’s episode of The Talk and said that without his former co-star, he wouldn’t be where he is now. In celebration of The Young and the Restless‘ 50th anniversary, Shemar Moore will appear in a special episode.
On Monday’s episode, the actor will appear alongside the rest of the Winters family, including daughter Lily (Christel Khalil), nephew Devon (Bryton James), and stepson Nate (Sean Dominic). The actor played the beloved Malcolm Winters from 1994 until 2005.
Shemar Moore Pays Tribute To His Late Co-Star
Malcolm may be seen standing beside Lily and Devon in a teaser film when he notices a photo of his half-brother Neil (Kristoff St. John) hanging on the wall. Before his death in 2019, St. John had played Neil for over 25 years. “There he is,” Malcolm replies, gazing at the artwork. “Besides, you know I showed up when it came to the great Neil Winters.” “No matter what it takes.”
Moore, like his character, previously returned to the serial series in April 2019 to remember his late castmate across numerous episodes. He was also featured in a special edition of the show devoted to St. John that aired in the same month. Other cast members who made an appearance in the program included Mishael Morgan, Khalil, and Victoria Rowell.
Moore is one of the numerous actors who have recently returned to The Young and the Restless in honor of the soap’s significant television anniversary. Additionally reprising their legendary roles from the series in March were Patty Weaver, Michael Damian, Barbara Crampton, Tricia Cast, and Veronica Redd.
