    Possible Recast for Y&R's Phyllis Newman Role?

    Tuesday, March 18 2014


    (FayesVision/Wenn.com)
    Phyllis' return.

    On May 20, 2013 the news broke of Michelle Stafford’s exit from The Young and the Restless and the role she had played for 16 years, Phyllis Summers Newman. Stafford, who made it clear she would not return, taped her last episode on June 19 and her scenes aired into August. At the time of her departure the character was in a coma in a special clinic in Georgia, where she remains.

    Since that time, Phyllis' name has come up in Genoa City storylines on a regular basis, most recently with Victor (Eric Braeden) calling to check on her status in connection with the secret being kept by Sharon (Sharon Case). Soaps.com wants to know, if the role of Phyllis Newman was recast, who could you see playing the part? Vote in our poll below.

    I have NO IDEA who most of all those other actors are...so my vote is to do everything possible to bring back Michelle Stafford. They've lost enough of the great actors on Y & R, they really need to bring the REAL Phyllis back!!

    These S/L's are WAY too long. I never cared for the Phyllis charactor but somebody, please get on with it. I'm too old to wait another 20 years for Nick to find out that Summer is really his and poor Sharon, why does she have to be the constant picked on charactor. So repetative, repetative, repetative. Bring Adam (MM) back. That was the only halfway decent SL.

    Bring back Michelle Stafford or don't bring anyone back.

    I would rather have Michelle Stafford back but if not I think Gina Tognoni has the same personality, just need to dye her hair red. I can see her standing up to Victor with no problem.
