Former The Young and the Restless star Michael Graziadei has been off the number one soap opera since the end of 2012 as Daniel Romalotti, or as many people may also know him as … the son of Phyllis! Graziadei returned to Y&R in 2013 for a short stint, but these days Michael can be seen starring in Lifetime’s new series, The Lottery!
In a new interview out in this week’s Soap Opera Digest (on newsstands now), the talented young star offers up his thoughts on Gina Tognoni now taking over the role of Phyllis from Michelle Stafford, who Michael worked with for many years.
Graziadei stated: “Gina is awesome! She’s fantastic and will do a great job. I’d love to get in there and work with her at some point! But isn’t Gina really young? (Laughs) It’s not so much me coming back (that would be the problem), it’s if she would want me to come there and say, ‘Hey Mom!’”
So, would you like to see Michael return to Y&R for a visit when Phyllis finally wakes up out of her coma? What do you think about Michael’s sentiments on Gina Tognoni? Let us know!
