Quote LunchtimeListner: Stephanie could never be replaced. She is the queen of daytime TV. B&B will miss her. I hope the show can continue, but unless Bell makes some major changes, I wonder who else will follow.
I agree with you. Whenever a long term character leaves the show, it's hard to replace them. SF is Stephanie and I just can't picture anyone taking her place.
When Katherine on Y&R left for a short time last year and Michael Learned took her place, I just never could get into seeing her there and it'll be the same if anyone replaces Stephanie.
