Looks like there will be no more Marisa in Genoa City! According to an item from Deadline.com Wednesday afternoon, Sofia Pernas (Marisa) has been let go from The Young and the Restless due to budgetary reasons. But Pernas landed very quickly on her feet!
Sofia has been cast as a series regular opposite Laura Brent in CW’s genre-themed drama pilot Transylvania!. Pernas is stepping into the role and replacing Amrita Acharia who was originally slated for the part. Apparently, twenty four hours after she was let go from the number one soap opera on Monday, Pernas booked the role in Transylvania, and Wednesday, got on a plane to go shoot the pilot.
The pilot Transylvania is set in 1880 and centers on Victoria (Brent), a headstrong young woman in search of her missing father who ventures from NYC to Transylvania where she teams up with a wrongfully disgraced Scotland Yard Detective, and together they witness the births of the most famous monsters and villains in history. Pernas will play Coriander, an exotic gypsy, the leader of the matriarchal Szgany clan that runs the fleshpots of the Old City — the haunted spot where Vlad the Impaler once killed thousands of their tribe.
