'THE YOUNG & RESTLESS' SOAP STAR, CHRISTEL KHALIL a.k.a. 'LILY WINTERS' MARRIES BOYFRIEND IN SMALL CEREMONY.


Congratulations to The Young & The Restless star Christel Khalil, who plays 'Lily Winters' on the CBS soap. The 20-year old actress married her boyfriend Stephen Hensley in a small, intimate ceremony last month on September 21st. Guests included Khalil's family, friends and fellow Y&R cast mates. Let's hope her real life marriage plays out ten times better than her onscreen marriage to 'Daniel'! As for 'Lily' and 'Cane'....well....

Anywho, to give you all a little bit of background info on Christel, the actress began portraying 'Lily Winters' back in 2002 until she 'temporarily' left the soap in 2005 to pursue other movie and television projects. She was eventually replaced by actress Davetta Sherwood, who most Y&R fans, like myself, quickly took a liking to. Seven short months later, before we could organize a non-official 'Team Davetta!' cheering squad, Christel decided those her other projects weren't working out thus her return to the soap to reprise the 'Lily Winters' role. Lynn Marie Latham, Y&R executive producer at the time (she has since been let go), played favorites by giving the role back to Christel and firing Davetta. During her time away from Y&R, Christel, whose father is Pakistani, and mother is of African American, Native American and White American ancestry, had a small tv role in the French animated series W.I.T.C.H. which is based on an Italian comic book of the same name. Yes, she left Y&R to play the voice of a character on a cartoon series.

She's too young to get married, by age. I hope her husband is responsible and have eyes for only her. I wish them all the best.
