There’s good news for those waiting to find out exactly when Mishael Morgan will return to our screens as The Young and the Restless’ Amanda Sinclair. We have a return date!
It’s been almost two months since Mishael shared news of her eye injury and the ensuing emergency eye surgery that would sideline her from her popular role on the number one daytime sudser. The Young and the Restless was forced to recast the role quickly, and very wisely elected to go with a seasoned and popular actress from their sister soap, The Bold and the Beautiful.
When Karla Mosley stepped in as Amanda the switcheroo was virtually seamless thanks to Karla’s professionalism and grasp of the role. She managed to capture the cool attorney to a tee as she took on her estranged family’s criminal case. But it wasn’t just legal jargon that Karla had to master, she’s also shared scenes with Bryton James’ Devon, who is in a relationship with his late wife’s twin, and rose to the occasion in confrontational scenes with Leigh-Ann Rose, who plays her half-sister, Imani. Not to mention squaring off with Christian LeBlanc’s Michael Baldwin, and none other than the Mustache himself, Eric Braeden’s Victor Newman.
As May continues, Karla will remain in Amanda’s proficient and polished pumps. Mishael returned to the set of Young & Restless in late April to resume filming, but those scenes won’t make it to air until month’s end — in fact, Soap Opera Digest confirms her first scenes will actually air on Tuesday, June 1. In the meantime, look back on photos of Morgan and James in Hilary and Devon’s love story.
