    i would love to see drucilla back noone can take her place, drucilla is the only one who can play dru in my book, i love dru and im hoping she come back soon, she brings so much to the show,dru is great in the soap land, and no one can wear a hat like dru, she is a class act and we all miss her, we need drucilla back, we need some fire works in this show, and the only one who can bring it to the show is victoria rowell , the show isnt the same without her. she had alot going on, i miss her.bring her back, noone can play dru, but victoria rowell, and thats the truth,

    Quote mdtuttle: No, some characters just can not be recast and I think Dru is one of those. If Victoria Rowell were willing to come back and they could come up with a plausable way for her to return to the role I would say great. Otherwise I say let Dru rest in peace.


    I am with you on that! She was on Good Morning Texas
    a while back and she stated she would come back if asked..

    I want Victoria Rowell to come back as Dru,
    like I said before, these writers do not want
    her to come back. I guess because she probably
    will not let the writers write her stupid, like they
    do everyone else on the Y&R. So according to the
    head writer (MAB), Mrs. Rowell will not be coming
    back anytime soon! Which is a shame, because maybe
    the ratings would be a lot better! WOULDN'T YOU
    THINK, WRITERS!

    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!

    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.
