Quote misssan: As a black viewer I do not see Victoria Rowell returning in the role of Drucilla. Of all the Black roles cast Dru was the closest in the actual portrayal of a real Black woman in any soap. I knew some time ago that blacks in Genoa City's time was limited, when I counted nine Black actors on the soap at one time. Come on Y&R head honchos, did you really have to get rid of Dru? And believe me, there is no substitution for Ms. Rowell.
From what I've read, VR wanted to leave the show, they didn't get rid of her. It would be great if they brought back Olivia and Malcolm and, possibly, Olivia's son. In my opinion, it would be very difficult to put someone else in this role. Victoria Rowell brought a unique perspective to this character and I think it would be difficult for the viewers to accept anyone else.JMO!
