As previously reported, Michelle Stafford is returning to daytime on Tuesday, June 3 playing a new character on a soap not named "The Young and the Restless," where she played Phyllis Summers off and on for 16 years.In a newly released promo for ABC's "General Hospital," where she'll portray the contract role of Nina Clay, Stafford is seen in character proclaiming, "After 20 years, I'm back to reclaim my life. My family betrayed me, my husband deserted me, but love forgives all... or does it?"
According to Soap Opera Digest, "General Hospital" has cast Hannah Nordberg in the role of Josslyn Jacks, the daughter of Carly (Laura Wright) and Jax (Ingo Rademacher). She succeeds Paige Olivier, who played the character in 2013.
Earlier this month fans got their first glimpse of Michelle Stafford on a daytime soap not named "The Young and the Restless." In a twist of fate, it was revealed that Stafford went from playing a comatose Phyllis Summers on "Y&R" last year to newly awakened coma patient Nina Clay on "GH."
Hallmark’s beloved talk show “Home & Family” has featured so many soap star guests, it’s a wonder it’s not up for Outstanding Drama Series in this year’s Daytime Emmy race. With everyone from “Days of our Lives’” Deidre Hall (Marlena Evans) to the “Young and the Restless’” Peter Bergman (Jack Abbott) and Eric Braeden (Victor Newman) dropping by, it’s pretty much par-for-par with Salem, Port Charles and Genoa City. Though, as former “Entertainment Tonight” personality and current “Home & Family” co-host Mark Steines would tell you, the set is anything but something you’d see on a typical daytime drama.
Now that Michelle Stafford has signed on to portray the contract role of Nina Clay on ABC's "General Hospital," it was only a matter of time before CBS' "The Young and the Restless" opted to recast her Daytime Emmy Award winning role. Earlier this month the soap announced they were doing just that after putting out a casting call for the role, which was recently landed by soap veteran Gina Tognoni.
