So now, the agents that Daytime Emmy winner Christel Khalil (Lily Winters) has filed a lawsuit against have come forward exclusively to TheWrap.com with their side of the story. Khalil’s agents, Mavrick Artists Agency’s attorney, Max Sprecher, said that the actress’s complaint is “all blue smoke and mirrors” and suggested that she does not want to pay the agency monies owed.
In her suit, she alleges the agency of stealing funds and not sending her out on a satisfactory number of auditions. She says they even sent her out for a role on the show she has worked on for over a decade, The Young and the Restless as Lily Winters!
The attorney for Mavrick refuted Christel’s allegation about being sent to a “Y&R” audition. “There’s no way in hell that she went out on an audition,” Sprecher said. “That just couldn’t have happened. Do you think ‘Young & the Restless’ is so stupid that their casting office would have scheduled such an audition? It wasn’t an audition — it was a submission and even if a submission happened, it was simply an oversight as agents and their assistants are in a mad rush to beat out the competition. “Have we all not made computer mistakes?’” the attorney asked. “These things happen and it’s not a big deal.”
So what do you think of the agents position on this case? Do you think their “error” in submitting Christel for a role on her own show Y&R was a sloppy job by an agent assistant? Wouldn’t you be pissed if you were Christel? Share your thoughts?
