Who would have thought that being kidnapped could be so much fun? This is as Melissa Claire Egan shared behind-the-scene photos, previewing Chelsea’s abduction in Wednesday’s episode. It turned out to be a take-your-husband-to-work day, as Matt Katrosar is revealed to be the Masked Man.
The Young and the Restless and Chelsea’s abduction
Fans just got a preview of Wednesday’s episode of the CBS daytime soap. Am image posted to Instagram by Melissa Claire Egan reveals her kidnapper on that episode. It turned out to be none other than her real-life husband, Matt Katrosar. This definitely made the kidnapping an unusually fun event!
Melissa posted three images while posing with her handsome hubby, Matt. The first shows her putting on her best “scared face” with her menacing “kidnapper” standing nearby. In the second image, neither of them can keep a straight face. However, the final image shows Melissa as Chelsea and Matt as her kidnapper. They were clearly laughing their way into the Chancellor living room. Check out the three fun images below.
The Y&R star captioned the images, writing “when you have to get ‘kidnapped’ on the show you work on.” The caption continued to explain that no one is allowed to touch you “during Covid times.” This means that sometimes your husband gets to come in and do the job.
It ended, “Tune in Wednesday (but watch all week, it’s gettin’ real juicy!).” She added that fans get to see “@katrosar kill it as the “masked man”, (he prefers to be called Stryker).”
Exciting twists and turns in Y&R
Melissa isn’t kidding. Recently, the drama in The Young and the Restless has truly taken off. Meanwhile, every new twist and turn in the plot is exciting.
It was fun to see the comments from Egan’s co-stars, including Chelsea’s former husband, Justin Hartley (Adam). He wrote, “Now I know what I’m doing Wednesday.”
As a former All My Children star, some of her former spouses on the show found the post hilarious. Cameron Mathison who played Ryan, said, “OMG… this is hysterical.” Meanwhile, another castmate, Alicia Minshew (Kendall) was also laughing. She wrote in her comment, “I looove this so much – amazing! What a fun role for [Katrosar].”
As noted by Soaps She Knows, her The Young and the Restless co-stars also peppered the post with laughing emojis. These include Brytni Sarpy (Elena) and Michelle Stafford (Phyllis). Meanwhile, Kate Mansi (ex-Abigail) on Days of Our Lives and Kristen Alderson (ex-Starr/Kiki) on General Hospital added their smiles and chuckles.
Fans contributed, including one who wrote, “This pandemic sucks! But that is really awesome. Cant [sic] wait to see this!” Another wrote, “Omg total spoiler but this is so dang cute I’m not even mad 😂😂😍” while one more commented “You have yourself a pretty handsome kidnapper! (Husband ☺️).”
Meanwhile, Melissa also posted a fun image of her and her husband, Matt, all dressed up for Halloween.
