Quote Hammmer:Quote Homesick Cajun:Quote Deana4Villy: I accept that they want to recast Phyllis for the show, since her character is needed, and MS stated that she wasn't leaving the door open for a return. She made her decision based on what she wanted for her life, and I don't think that is changing. Plus, everyone is enjoying her web series.
But, watching yesterday, it hit me when the hand moved. It was not the long graceful hand of MS.
As for recasts, I know David Tom was loved as Billy, and when he left, it took some time to get it right, but they certainly did, in Billy Miller, and it may take time, but I think they'll find the right Phyllis too.
I agree. No matter who they bring in first that will fail. I think eventually the right actress will come along.
Not sure this regime would recognize the right actress for the part however. Will take a new EP to get it right. However, if we didn't have Phelps, I'm betting MS wouldn't have left in the first place...
Phyllis is needed but it will be a tough gig for whoever takes the job. Some recasts are hard to take. I can't see any Sharon fan being ok with a recast anymore than I can a Phyllis fan.
I agree. I think we are fans of the character because of the actor's interpretation of the character. With a different actor it would be hard to care about the character in the same way. This isn't to say that it is impossible, but I think it will take a really long time and a very talented recast (ie Peter Bergman). As a fan of Sharon Case, I am not sure I could accept another Sharon Newman.
