Earlier Wednesday, Deadline reported that The Young and the Restless Sofia Pernas (Marisa) was let go from the series on Monday due to budgetary cuts, and then in turn landed a new gig on the CW pilot Translyvania.
However, this evening a show spokesperson for the CBS Daytime drama series related Pernas’ status with the show, and that in fact, “She’s recurring and will continue to be seen on the show.”
This comes as good news to those who were a bit miffed by the sudden reported departure of the actress by the mainstream outlet. The Moroccan-born actress came on to Y&R during the Marco Annicelli/Jack Abbott (Peter Bergman) doppelganger storyline and made her debut back in June of 2015.
So, what do you think of the updated status of Sofia with Y&R? Glad she will actually be returning on a recurring basis? Comment below!
