“I think it’s probably going to come down to them battling it out and finding common ground.”

As Genoa City’s Hilary Curtis, Mishael Morgan has certainly stirred up some dust over the last year on “The Young and the Restless.” Initially seeking revenge as Ann Turner, she did anything she could to ruin the Winters family. Now, she’s doing everything she can to reverse the damage done and get back in their good graces.

Morgan spoke with Soaps.com about Hilary redeeming herself with the Winters family, who is better for her – Devon or Neil – and why her character gravitates toward older men in the first place!

Soaps.com: Hilary came into Genoa City like a wrecking ball. Is it possible that she is still working an agenda, or has she truly changed?

Morgan: I think it is always possible, especially in the soap world. Right now she’s trying her best to change and be different, and she sees the benefit that comes from being a good person and having friends and family, and I think she wants that in her life. Right now she’s really giving a good go at it. What happens in the near future that could ruin that, we don’t know!

Soaps.com: Why do you think Hilary gravitates toward older men like Jack (Peter Bergman) and Neil (Kristoff St. John)? Does she have daddy issues?

Morgan: Possibly. She does have that history of her father not being around, being in prison her whole life. I think she does have that tendency to look up to men, and men that she admires and respects and are kind to her, I think she can take that a little bit further. And really fall for them because of that, because that is something she is missing from her childhood, a father who was always there.

Soaps.com: Who would you like to see Hilary with – Devon (Bryton James) or Neil?

Morgan: There are such benefits to both of them! Neil is a man who is established and who is very admirable and has lived so much of his life, and he can teach her so much and help her grow as a person. And then you have Devon. He’s younger, he’s her peer and they can grow together which would be an interesting dynamic too. But I don’t know… she’s already with Neil so I guess I would like to see what would happen with Devon.

Soaps.com: There are still some issues with Lily (Christel Khalil). If Hilary were totally humiliated, would that be enough to make it up to her? If not, what would it take?

Morgan: That’s the problem! Hilary is doing her best to try and figure out what would make Lily okay with everything. I think it’s probably going to come down to them battling it out and finding common ground, at some point. But I definitely think it is going to be a long road ahead considering she tried to drug her husband.

Soaps.com: You’re wrapping up one full year on “Y&R.” What has the experience been like?

Morgan: Oh, it’s just been awesome, surreal and amazing and awesome. Just meeting all of these amazing people that I have watched growing up, because I have watched “Y&R” since I was 5. My mom watched it for my entire life. And just being on the show and meeting all of these people and getting to know everybody on such a personal level has been such an amazing experience. I just feel so blessed and lucky to be a part of it.
