    The casting war between General Hospital and The Young and the Restless just took an interesting turn. Soap Opera Digest is reporting Y&R has brought  Kelly Sullivan into the Genoa City family.

     

    According to the magazine’s site, Sullivan will play a new character named Sage who is considered, smart,  proficient, subtle and cautious. Sage is loyal to family and friends and is very passionate deep down. Sullivan remarked on her new role,

    “I’m incredibly honored and flattered to even be considered to be part of The Young and the Restless family. I’m also thrilled to be working with [Executive Producer] Jill Farren Phelps again like we did on GH.

    Sullivan’s first airdate in the recurring role is slated for Oct. 28.

    Our girl! I guess this confirms that she was indeed in the running for Phyllis, but Gina brought something to the table that was too good to pass up. Cute for Kelly for snagging this gig on the top soap.

    I wish Kelly had been cast as Phyllis and Gina had been cast for this role, but oh well! GH’s loss is Y&R’s gain!!!! (:

    Good for Kelly!  I like that Y&R is getting their crap together now and has made some big casting moves lately.

    Yeah!  And you’re probably right because, Joshua Morrow said in an interview that GT’s reading was quite impressive.
    I’m assuming they’re bringing Sullivan on to be paired with nuAdam.  Does anyone else think ‘Sage’ sounds a lot like Avery though?  I like Jessica Collins, but with the size of the cast a new character seems a bit much, and Avery has become such a bore that a recast could revitalize her a bit.

    Kelly did an interview with SoapBox (Martha Madison and Lily Melgar’s show) where she basicallly confirms that she was the runner up for Phyllis and JFP came to her with this new role based on that.
