With the news that Michelle Stafford has joined the cast of General Hospital as Nina Clay, The Young and the Restless has decided its time to move full force into recasting the pivotal role of Phyllis!
An official casting call had gone out to find Stafford’s replacement with the description of the character as: “Phyllis is beautiful, smart and conniving. She is confident in her own sexuality and is unafraid to use it to get what she wants. She knows she has power over men and many times has used it, both to her benefit and to her detriment. She definitely has an edge.” The casting notice also asked for an actress 35-4o years old.
On Y&R, Phyllis has been in a coma since tumbling down the stairwell thanks to a key incident that involved Sharon’s (Sharon Case) paternity secret of Summer (Hunter King)! Now that Jack Abbott (Peter Bergman) is falling in love again and this time with Kelly Andrews (Cady McClain), ain’t it about time for Phyllis to wake up and shake things up for Jack and Kelly and Nick (Joshua Morrow) and Sharon?
So, it’s time to put your casting director hats on! Who do you think would make a good Phyllis … and that you would like to see on Y&R? Someone who has played previous roles on daytime or primetime television? Michelle Stafford definitely make her mark on this role, so it may be a very difficult act to follow!
