Looks like lots of soap peeps will be making their way on to the Sarah Michelle Gellar driven CW drama, Ringer. First, Y&R’s Billy Miller (Billy Abbott) was just announced to be making his way on to the series in a recurring role, and now comes news out today via TV Guide, that his cast mate, Michelle Stafford (Phyllis), is on her way to the series for a guest-star turn!
According to Stafford, she loved working with Gellar and appreciated Gellar’s love of her soap days on AMC! “Sarah told me how important AMC was, and still is, to her. She still watches the show and keeps in contact with a lot of the people there. I think it’s so cool she went back for an appearance before the show ends. She’s one of those people who really earned her success. She knows how lucky she is to have done AMC and isn’t about to put down the soap experience.”
Stafford also reveals that her upcoming character on Ringer, (about twin sisters, Bridget and Siobhan, as played by Geller) is, ” Really nosy and very much in your face — one of those me, me, me types who talks a mile a minute.” And TVG details that Stafford plays a “blabby society dame”.
Look for Michelle on the September 27th episode of Ringer!
