I would love to see the actress, VR reprise her character as Dru. However, I've also read in a few articles / interviews that VR has left her options open for a possible return, and even hinted she would like to come back. But the TPTB decided that there was no plans to bring the character Dru back; whether or not it would be VR or a recast. I think it was a matter of choice. (the writers, that is..) ~) Like they did with the Malcom character... Just when it was a perfect time to slot those characters back in.. TPTB decides not to...

As far as Drucilla... IMO, I myself would prefer VR, (hands down) to come back as Dru. However, if later down the road the TPTB opts to recast... Then, I would agree that Jasmine Guy would be a good fit. I would just have to find a way to adjust to it like I finally did when Heather Tom left as Victoria. ;)

VR has repdily said she would love to come back to Y&R if asked but MAB's has said dru will not be re cast and VR will not be returning so that puts an end to this .

Quote cherchezlefemme: Bottom line folks is we need to get over ourselves. If Y&R decide to reprise the role of Drucilla, in time we would all learn to love the new actress in the role. Yes. VR was in deed the original, but let's be real.... Original's do get replaced and we learn to make adjustments. Look at Terry Lester in the character of Jack and Peter Bergman who replaced him. Just as we learned to accept this, we would learn to adapt to another actress as Drucilla. Frankly, I never cared for KC in the part of Lily. I liked the other young woman in the role. To me she was much more believable as the daughter of Neil and Drucilla.


Terry Lester -! Bergman was well recieved because of his highly popular role on AMC! He and Braden have had some well publicized issues and have dealt with them! Some of the cast seem to be taking sides in the issue of whether or not Rowell should return! That is truly sad, because while I like their characters, they are not nearly as entertaining as Drucilla was! While Rowell has issues, she is the only one who can play Drucilla! I can't imagine anyone else. I want Victoria Rowell back as Drucilla Winters, and only her!

Quote SoapsRUs247: I would to see Dru back so that she can be there for her husband Neil, and her children Devon and Lily, the rest of her family and friends. I would love to see Jasmine Guy. She's got spunk and fire!


Maybe Jasmine but I really can't see anyone in this role but VR. She played it perfectly, hats and all! ;) :-)


I agree. VR is the only Dru I want to see on Y&R. The actors just need to grow up and get over it and think of what's in the best interest of the show - fans love VR's Dru!

You are too funny... and kinda mean too... I like it! :-)

Terry Lester was (-. This was a case where the decision was made because -. The thing with VR was based upon the LML regime who basically destroyed the character Bill Bell created. - Let's hope that the new writers continue their work developing good story lines and if they reprise the role of Dru, personality won't be the issue and professionalism will be the first consideration.

I sooooo support this campaign! The character of Drucilla was as important as Nikki, Jill, or Lauren to this soap and yes, the role should be reprised.

There can be only one Drucilla, and that is Victoria Ruel.

If Victoria Rowell isn't playing the role, then they can leave Dru dead... >)

No! NO! No! They reduced Dru to a crazy(in a bad way)character that needed to be a nut house ~) I was embarrassed to watch 8) & now, with Olivia, I feel the same way!! This isnt the Olivia I knew. They would have been better off if they got another character to play the busybody >) >)

Jasmine Guy is a GREAT suggestion for an actress to play Drucilla.

HOWEVER,

I do not want to see Drucilla the nutball -- which is where the character was when she went over the cliff.

Spunky, strong, African American Drucilla is welcome back any time. Drucilla does NOT have to be played by Victoria Rowell, IMO. There are more African American actresses in the world than VR who can play this character.
