In an Instagram Reel posted yesterday, Mishael Morgan revealed that she’ll soon be back on “The Young and the Restless,” where she’ll appear again as Amanda Sinclair, the role that won her a Daytime Emmy Award for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series in 2022.
In the short clip, Morgan is seen looking over her character’s wardrobe as she smiles and waves to the camera as the song “…Ready for It?” by Taylor Swift plays, overlaying the video.
In the post caption, Morgan wrote, “Guess who’s popping in for a visit!!!”
At press time, it was unknown when Morgan would mark her return to the series nor for how long. However, based on Morgan’s post, don’t expect her to appear on screen for long; it’s just a “visit.”
Since Morgan published her Instagram Reel, the post has been viewed more than 30,000 times and received over 2,500 likes and roughly 275 comments, including from some of Morgan’s co-stars at “The Young and the Restless” such as Tracey Bregman, Melissa Ordway and Lauralee Bell, among others.
In late 2022, Morgan decided not to renew her contract with the daytime drama series so that she would have more free time to explore other career opportunities. Since then, she’s appeared on the soap on a recurring basis, with her last appearance being in March 2023.
In addition to her return visit to “The Young and the Restless,” Morgan is also celebrating her film “Sway” making its premiere at the Pan-African Film Festival in Los Angeles next month. The film, which Morgan stars in and executive produced, follows a community leader (played by Emmanuel Kabongo) who has it all until his life spirals out of control within hours after his brother goes missing. Between being blackmailed by a strange woman and getting himself entangled in a murder, he’ll soon find out how far he will go to protect the ones he loves.
Originally titled “Spiral,” “Sway” wrapped production in late April 2023 in Toronto, Canada, and was written by Charlie Hamilton, who also directed the film alongside Zach Ramelan.
“The first film I ever executive produced premiers at the Pan-African Film Festival in LA on February 8th and 9th!!!! Hope to see you there!!!!” said Morgan about the movie on Instagram. “This was a true labour of love and I am so honoured to be on this journey with you @emmkab.”
