Exclusive: Helen Slater Joins The Young and the Restless

The doctor is in — and she looks just like Supergirl! Helen Slater is heading to CBS's The Young and the Restless as an OB/GYN named Dr. Chiverton. But which Genoa City gal is expecting a baby? The soap is keeping that quiet for now, since there are several possibilities beyond the obvious one, Lauren Fenmore (Tracey Bregman), who currently thinks she's pregnant.

The doctor is in — and she looks just like Supergirl! Helen Slater is heading to CBS's The Young and the Restlessas an OB/GYN named Dr. Chiverton. But which Genoa City gal is expecting a baby? The soap is keeping that quiet for now, since there are several possibilities beyond the obvious one, Lauren Fenmore (Tracey Bregman), who currently thinks she's pregnant.

Slater hits the air May 2 for at least five episodes, with more appearances likely to be scheduled. The actress made a media splash 30 years ago when she played the title role in the film Supergirl. She later returned to the Man of Steel universe when she played Clark Kent's birth mother Lara-El on Smallville. Slater was also a regular for two seasons of ABC's Family's The Lying Game, as Sutton and Laurel's mom Kristin. Her other film credits include Ruthless People, The Secret of My Success and the Oscar-winning City Slickers.
