CBS will air a tribute to the irreplaceable Ms. Jeanne Cooper, who played the feisty, brilliant, beautiful Katherine Chancellor on ‘The Young and the Restless’. It is set to air May 28th and family members, Y&R family members and friends will gather this week to film it. It will include interviews made with Ms Cooper in celebration of the 40th year anniversary of Y&R.
Ms Cooper passed away on May 8th and her son Corbin Bernsen had kept her fans apprised of her condition on his Facebook page and was truly eloquent in his love for his mother and the role her fans have played in her life and during this dark time.
Ms Cooper who is truly irreplaceable, joined Y&R in 1973 and has played Katherine Chancellor since then, making her the longest running cast member. This earned her 11 Daytime Emmy nominations and the award for “Best Actress” in 2008.
To say this wonderful woman will be missed is an understatement.
