    She's pretty, but looks much older than other Abbey. Hope she is more serious acting and not bubble headed like current Abbey character.

    I loved Marcy now emme in the role of Abby and I have nothing against Melissa but she looks to old to play Abby.

    Bad choice; Abby is so delicate and classy; girlish ...

    I have watched this show for 40 yrs. I am sick of all the changes, all GOOD ones leave, by you sending them on their way or leaving on their own. Can't believe you are letting Marcy leave. She is GOOD, need to look at what it would take to keep her. We hardly have time to get use to someone playing a part before they are replaced. What's the problem ?

    I hope that when Leslie leaves, I know it's a longshot, but please bring Drucilla Winters back. We all miss her like crazy!

    Glad Marcy is leaving. Cannot stand her irritating voice. Hope they take the air head out of the character.

    Sick of changes in this soap. They should have fired Marcy in the first place. Now they fired the first grown Kyle. why the changes? In fact to me, they are worst than the staff under MAB (Ooops, did I say a dirty word?

    I too am a 40 fan of Y&R and am sick of the new writing team. I guess a new team means total upheavel. Stop letting go of great cast members and stop messing with stable story lines. Yes soap fans like the drama but we also like a little bit of peace and harmony(i.e. leave Michael and Lauren) the happiest couple on the show and you have totally screwed that storyline. Stop and think about what your fans like because if you don't you may not have any fans left!!!!!
