With fans still reeling from the shocking casting switcheroo by CBS' "The Young and the Restless" for the role of Billy Abbott, many have been clamoring to hear how daytime newcomer Burgess Jenkins snagged the coveted part.
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.
“The Young and the Restless’” Amelia Heinle (Victoria Newman) is celebrating her first ever Emmy nomination as well as an exciting storyline involving Sean Carrigan’s Stitch, but that didn’t prevent her from opening up about a slew of other topics when reporters chatted with the actress shortly after she received the news that she’d officially be in this year’s Emmy race. The actress had no qualms about discussing the emotional year “Y&R” has experienced, what it was like working with Billy Miller (ex-Billy Abbott), her obsession with Tristan Rogers (Colin Atkinson) and more.
Just as the long memorial day holiday weekend was getting ready to begin word broke that "The Young and the Restless" was recasting the role of Billy Abbott. According to Daytime Confidential, "Y&R" has decided to go in a different direction with the character and has let David Tom go. He is being replaced by actor Burgess Jenkins.
