    She reminds me of Hayden Panetierre when she was on “Guiding Light” back in the late 1990′s. About 8 years old but acting 28.

    I love her as Sharon’s daughter. I wish her the best. Yet, the other girl who substitutes for her is also good; I like her also. The Young and the Restless has two girls who play the role quite well.
