Y&R Character Descriptions

Dylan McAvoy
Played By Steve Burton
Written By Darlene

on December 11, 2013

Dylan McAvoy is a good example of bad things happening to good people. While serving his country in Afghanistan, he lost many friends, a child he wanted desperately to save, and his mother.  He came back from war hoping to reunite with his true love, Avery, only to find that she was engaged to Nick Newman. A short time later, his father died.  In mourning, he had a one-night stand with Chelsea, who later found out she was pregnant with Adam's child.  She didn't want Adam involved in the baby's life, so she lied about the paternity of the baby.  She told Dylan he was the father. Dylan fell in love with Chelsea and they married. On the same night, she gave birth. Dylan delivered the baby boy and he fell in love again. Upon discovering that the baby, Connor, had an eye disorder, Chelsea told Adam and Dylan the truth about his paternity.  Connor was devastated.  He divorced Chelsea, and Connor officially became a Newman.  As if this wasn't enough betrayal, Nikki Newman proved that Dylan was her firstborn son who was conceived when she was young and in a cult.  This meant his adoptive mother had lied to him and his father.  It also meant that Nick was his brother and Adam his step-brother. The only good thing for Dylan in this mess was that he got Avery back.

In spite of how he thinks of himself, Dylan is a good man…with very bad luck.  He is a good friend to Stitch, Billy, Sharon, and Faith.  Finding out Faith is his niece was probably a bright spot in finding out he had a family he never knew about.

Dylan bought Crimson Lights from Kevin and Chloe Fisher when he learned he was going to be a father. Unfortunately, that means he has to face many people in Genoa City he'd rather not see.
