This is an ongoing series in which I highlight public figures who can perhaps attribute a portion of their success to a background in Latin study.
I've previously celebrated the likes of Joshua Chamberlain, Tom Hiddleston, and Boris Johnson.
As a Latin teacher and a fan of The Young and the Restless, I am happy to present the exciting news, in the week in which The Young and the Restless will air its 11,000th episode on September 1st, that none other than Lauralee Bell is a fellow Latin scholar!
Lauralee Bell portrays Christine Blair on the series, a role for which she was gained a Daytime Emmy Award nomination for Best Supporting Actress in a Drama Series in 2016.
But before her accomplishments before the camera, Lauralee Bell attended the Latin School of Chicago, a private school focused on the classical tradition, including study of the Latin language!
Congratulations to the producers and cast of The Young and the Restless for this milestone.
As we say in Latin:
Ad Multos Annos!
To Many Years (more)!
