I don't associate this with the color of their skin, and I am sorry the actors were fired, but personally I couldn't stand the characters they played.
As for the source of this information...Nelson Branco has no right to be calling himself a journalist. Just saying.

So this is his list of expected actors to be fired? It doesn't mean that they have been or will be.

The people who were fired are white and black. They didn't bring anything to the show. Y&R never got the bump MAB assumed Y&R would get by hiring popular actors from other shows.

Quote MeccaH: Nelso Branco Reports!

Soap UNCENSORED has it on high authority that these
actors mentioned below should start looking for work elsewhere stat.

Actors expected to be given their walking papers include:

- Genie Francis (Genevieve)

- Stephen Nichols (Tucker)

- Julia Pace Mitchell (SOPHIA)

- Darnell Williams (SARGE)

- Debbi Morgan (HARMONY)

The purge of Black Actors Begins!

Will Kristoff St John be next?



LOL, I just posted this list too!

Yeah, 3 of them are black. Good point. :-)

Kristoff (Neil) will probably be in the next round of cuts.

Has JFP taken over yet???.If so, she is moving fast.. but,
I will wait to see if this news is official.

Most of thse characters were useless... If she did the firing.. she may be making room for better actors..

I am not going to get excited .. I am sure there will be more to be fired.. she has to scale back this cast and get rid of actors who are not necessary.

JFP started work today!

Josh Griffith starts writing in 2 weeks!

There will be more cuts! Probably Kristoff St John (Neil) and Bryton James (Devon) will be in the next round.

Just his speculation. This is not confirmed as fact.

It makes sense that some of the newer additions will go but he's guessing just like we are. He says in one breath SN is likely out but then in another that he may stay. All speculation.


Actors expected to be given their walking papers include Genie Francis,
Stephen Nichols, Julia Pace Mitchell, Darnell Williams, and Debbi Morgan.
As we know from Josh Griffith’s first Y&R reign he got rid of every trace of
Lynne Marie Latham with the exception of Daniel Goddard’s Cane so it’s a
pretty safe bet that Friends of Maria will be out of Genoa City soon.
Also, JFP has a long, tension-filled history with Francis and Nichols, whom she
both let go from GH. Let’s not forget that Maria fashioned Gen after herself so
Francis will more than likely be the first to go.
As for Nichols, he could stick around considering Tucker is Kay’s son and
Devon’s father but Sony may need him more on DAYS especially with Mary Beth
Evans floundering about serving drinks at the Brady Pub. Add in the fact that
Nichols’s Y&R leading lady Eileen Davidson has returned to Salem, then it could
be sayonara, Stephen.
I’m very concerned about Jess Walton and Tristan Roger’s impending returns to
Y&R, which are tentatively scheduled for fall. JFP was never a fan of Rogers on
GH, so we’ll have to wait and see.
While Morgan is an Emmy-winning actress and has given Kristoff St. John a
viable leading lady since Victoria Rowell left the series in shame, her character
has been a bust so far; and Sony may want to rid Y&R of the AMC migration
Maria set in motion this past year.
I wouldn’t be surprised if Rowell has left several messages for Griffith and JFP
about resurrecting Drucilla back from the dead! But would Sony want that
headache again? I’d bring her back for the sake of the story and the ratings,
but CBS may not want to upset the cast over bringing on the polarizing diva.
I’m hearing CBS/Sony isn’t crazy about Elizabeth Hendrickson, Greg Rikaart,
Michael Graziadei, Jessica Heap, and Blake Hood, either, but this young-ish
group may be hard to get rid if Y&R is serious about building a new generation.
The actors possibly moving to the backburner are mostly vets like Eric Braeden,
Jeanne Cooper, Peter Bergman, Melody Thomas Scott, Doug Davidson and
Tracey Bregman.
Lane fans will be happy because the higher-ups are content with Daniel
Goddard and Christel Khalil, “who serve their purpose in their own way but not
a big one.”
Michelle Stafford will more than likely not steal all the airtime, either. Expect
a more balanced cast with Griffith in charge.

I would miss Neil. he is a veteran.... but he has been reduced to squat.. if kept, his character needs an over haul. I won't miss the others.
