Constance Bingham was a character on The Young and the Restless portrayed by Sally Kellerman.
Constance Bingham is a wheelchair-bound elderly woman caring for who she believes is her grandson Gabriel, however Gabriel is actually the presumably-dead Adam Newman after having several facial reconstructive surgeries. Constance believes that Gabriel try to save Adam after the car exploded, however unknown to her, Adam in fact survived the explosion and presumably stole Gabriel's identity. Constance claims Adam Newman didn't deserve to be saved.
After the surgery, Constance and Sage arranged Adam a large meal in the cabin. Constance asked how it was and Adam (Gabriel) stated it was good but he's not big on the spinach. Constance was astonished because spinach was (Gabriel's) favorite. Adam pretended to remember and ate some more. Adam kept wanted to leave so quickly and Sage tried to stop him insisting that he has to pretend to be her grandson if he wants to leave.
When Nick Newman came to Constance's house, looking for Sage because she saved him, Constance denied knowing her and close the door once she found out Nick was Victor Newman's son. Constance allowed Adam (Gabriel) to leave if Sage accompanied him. Adam (Gabriel) reluctantly agrees. While Adam (Gabriel) and Sage are gone. Constance falls out of her wheelchair and is bedridden. Sage learns that Constance is dying and she and Adam (Gabriel) return to say goodbye. Constance tells Adam (Gabriel) that Victor Newman was behind the hostile takeover of Gabriel's father's company. This led to Gabriel's father committing suicide and Constance blamed Victor, hence her hostility towards Nick, and anger at Adam. She asked Adam (Gabriel) to avenge "his father's" death.
Just before Constance dies, she sees Gabriel welcoming her into the light and realizes Adam isn't her grandson. Constance asked who Adam was and he claimed to be Gabriel. Constance knew it wasn't and Sage admit she did this for her.
In May 2016, it was discovered that Sage had a journal that claimed Adam had murdered Constance by poisoning her. Dylan McAvoy had Constance's body exhumed and it was revealed she had been poisoned. However, it is later revealed that Victor paid the coroner to tampa with the autopsy, to make it look like she had died from poisoning, framed Adam yet again, for another crime he did not commit. She then returned in May 2016, where she appeared as a ghost in Adam's dream.
