Re: Y&R Breaking News ..........

Gina Tognoni, who will be leaving the role of Y&R’s Phyllis, has released a statement on Instagram about her exit. “Five years ago, I was blessed to embrace the incredible character of Phyllis Summers Abbott,” she begins. “I am beyond grateful for the creative experience that The Young and the Restless has given to me as well as the amazing relationships I made with the cast, crew/staff, producers, and writers. I love my Genoa City family, which made it easy to give 110% every day. My long commutes always went smoothly because I loved where I worked and the people I worked with!” To see the full statement, go to https://www.instagram.com/p/Bvpwc7ohB9P/.

Stafford left Y&R because of an anti-scientologist that was hired...I cant remember if it was an onscreen person or someone behind the scenes....anyway....guess this means that person  is no longer there

I agree. Stafford wanted out, let her stay out. I prefer Gina. This might prove to be Y&R's Waterloo as far as I'm concerned. This show had far bigger problems than who plays the role of Phyllis. As far as I'm concerned, casting Gina was one of the few casting decisions they'd got right in recent memory.

Maybe they could hire him back.

In this case, I'd just as soon they lose the character altogether, but the one being replaced isn't a particularly good actor, nor has he been front burner. I suspect that with Neil gone, they want a Black actor who can be more front and center, though who knows if the new guy will be any more capable than the one he replaces. I don't care what they do with Nate, but am incensed about the Phyllis recast, which is completely unnecessary and just plain stupid.
