5 March 21st, 2013 Spotlight on Michelle Stafford! Y&R’s 40th Annniversary Video Retrospective – Watch It!


You cannot do a celebration of The Young and the Restless, and not include the woman who plays the character that ignites the colorful canvas of Genoa City, and that would be none other than Daytime Emmy winner, Michelle Stafford who plays Phyllis.

In this video retrospective segment that aired at the beginning of  a recent episode of The Young and the Restless, Stafford discusses that beginnings of  crazy bad girl Phyllis to the evolution of her becoming a leading lady on the show, plus that little jaunt a long the way when Michelle played psycho Sheila Carter!

During the retrospective, Michelle reveals what it has been like to play along side of her co-stars, pays a fitting tribute to legendary Y&R creator, Bill Bell, and talks about the loves of Phyllis’ life from Danny Romalotti (Michael Damian(, to Nick Newman (Joshua Morrow), to Jack Abbott (Peter Bergman).  In addition, Phyllis’ on-screen feud with the character of Sharon Newman (Sharon Case) is discussed.

From the retrospective clip package, to Michelle’s commentary, this makes this special feature one for the record books! Watch it after the jump, and let us know what has been your favorite Phyllis moment on Y&R, as we get ready to celebrate its 40 years on television next Tuesday March 26th!

    Sharon is my favorite. I still am upset with Phyllis she busted up Nick and Sharon. But now I do love Adam and Sharon even better so oh well


    Matt replied

    Phyllis and Jack are great and can’t wait till they find out Summer is jacks not Nicks. Adam and Sharon my other favorite. Now we just need Dru and Neil


  2. RUBY C. says:

    I didn’t like Phyllis at all until she was with Jack but then she broke up Schick that was horrific after Cassie died. But then now Phyllis is okay with jack. I never ever liked Phyllis with nick. I do now love Sharon with Adam so all is forgiven now lets find out who the real dad of summer is. Please let it be Jack


  3. Scott (ATWT Fan) says:

    I think my favourite pairings for Phyllis have been with Jack and Ronan. She and Nick just never fit together, nor did Nick and Sharon. I miss the feisty Phyllis that we last saw when Maura West graced our screens for a much too short time as Diane Jenkins. I hope they bring some edge back to Phyllis, though. I need some good ass-kicking fun! And I hope she and Jack last for once.

    I LOVE this so much; and I LOVE her! The Sheila storyline was amazing and I felt the work from Stafford/Davidson/LeBlanc was lighting in a bottle! I love it when Phyllis goes off the rails, but don’t like her paired with Jack, at all. I loved the chemistry with Ronan and feel that a younger, hotter guy is just what Phyllis needs!
