Dear Soaps,
Recently, Nathan Hastings was brought back to The Young and the Restless for a short time when a dying Olivia entered a spiritual plane. Many people I've talked to believe that this was the only actor to play Nathan. What other actors have played Nathan and which one returned for this recent appearance? — Bobbi

Dear Bobbi,
Three actors have played the role of Nathan Hastings. Nathan Purdee (who now plays Hank Gannon on One Life to Live) originated the role in 1985 and played it until 1992. The next Nathan was Randy Brooks, who played the part from 1992-93. Adam Lazzare-White was the third and final Nathan from 1994-96. Lazzare-White reprised Nathan during Olivia's recent trip to the great beyond. (MJM)
