For the longest time, it has seemed like primetime and daytime television programming have been in a battle for superiority. Anyone would agree that while primetime seems to have had the upper hand, for the most part, there are still some programs on daytime TV that make us pause and rethink every once in a while. Cait Fairbanks has managed to land herself a crucial role on one of such programs – The Young and the Restless.
The actress was a relatively unknown quantity until she joined the cast of the Daytime soap opera. This is partly due to the fact that she has spent a big chunk of her acting career doing stage plays. However, Cait has been doing television since 2006, with her earliest work coming in TLC’s Untold Stories of the ER. She has also made appearances on a number of primetime shows like Two and a Half Men and Everybody Hates Chris

Cait is a child star who kickstarted her acting career when she was just eight years old. At that period of her life, the child actress starred in a number of stage productions. Some of her best stage work included musicals like Heathers The Musical and 13. She is also known for her dual role as Samantha and Kaya in the stage play American Girl Theatre.

Then she was invited to join the cast of the ultra-successful long-running CBS soap opera The Young and the Restless. On the show, she was Tessa Porter and has appeared in more than 200 episodes since then. Her performances on the soap opera have also earned her Daytime Emmy Award nominations.
