    Can she take Fen with her?

    Character should have been more like Phyllis and less like Abby. However, Lindsay wasn't fit to play the part either way. Even when she would have a little more edge and talk back to Nick or Phyllis, she always looked like she was about to burst out laughing. Y&R seems to have a hard time casting teenagers on the show, they always get it wrong.

    Hope they recast & get someone who seems more like Phyllis' kid. And someone who can ACT would be nice.

    You're right, MagGrub, they do an aweful job casting teenagers. There are plenty of teenage actors in Hollywood who would love to work on this show and who CAN act. I think it was a huge mistake aging Summer anyway. Nick and Phyllis have not been together long enough to have a teenager.

    ============================================

    Only the current regime has had the problem of casting teens, not previous ones........

    Tracey, Lauren, Victoria #1, Sharon, Nick, Matt Clark#1, Nikki, Paul, Philip Chancellor III, original Billy & Mac, Nina, Raul, Brittany

    Most of this younger crowd was sorassed too much, too fast and too early for the audience to take any of them seriously. Summer was just born about 5 or six years ago. That's too early to be a teenager already. Abby jumped from Darcy Rose Byrnes (10) to a teenager to Marcy Rylan (21)in just a few years. Fen & Kyle went from boys to men in no time flat. How is an audience supposed to appreciate, accept & support anybody in these rapidly aged roles? We never got to know them as babies or toddlers anyway. There has been too much rapid aging of newborns & toddlers & it needs to stop. If I watch, I FF'd thru all of them b/c they are boring and I don't expect it to get any better with recasts. I wish the young Lady well in future endeavors.

    I did like Kevin Schmidt as Noah Newman b/c I felt I got to know Noah before he was sorassed. Don't know about his replacement. Maybe better writing will change the whole idea of sorassing youngsters into adults. Who knows? I will watch to see what happens.

    I like her but she was too old to play Nick and Phyllis' daughter

    She was too old to play their daughter. Three weeks before she came the other Summer couldn't have been more than grammar school age and this one came....showing cleavage! Come on, that is ridiculous as far as aging the characters! She wasn't very good, so I am glad to see her go.

    Lindsey, Best Of Luck! You were great as Summer and we will miss you. Remember their are bigger things on the horizon for you everything happens for a reason and usually it is for something better.
