Excited to see fan reaction.

“The Young and the Restless’” actors Gina Tognoni and Jason Thompson appeared on “CBS Los Angeles” this morning, Tuesday August 30, to promote the upcoming 11,000th episode milestone, which happens on Thursday September 1. The pair spoke about their Genoa City alter-egos, Phyllis and Billy, and teased that their characters’ affair would be revealed before too long, with Phyllis’ husband, Jack (Peter Bergman), finally finding out the scandalous truth about his wife and his brother.

Tognoni and Thompson also spoke about what it was like to come on the show as recasts and Tognoni answered a few questions about her last name – yes, it’s Italian. CBS has been airing interviews with Y&R actors in celebration of the 11,000th episode each day, and you can watch Gina Tognoni and Jason Thompson’s appearance on CBS Los Angeles below:
