Another actress has apparently been axed according to soap central boards and SOD. Marcy Rylan’s Abby has been let go. Well Y&R is certainly cleaning house. Also didn’t see on board Julia Pace Mitchell is recurring as Sofia. I fully expect to see Marco Dapper also leaving soon.
Jill Foster Abbott is in DA HAUS!
Like I posted on DC, LOVED her on GL, but people are acting as if they fired (insert great actress or daytime diva here). Ima need here to play against type before I can go “OH HELL NO”! -_-
She will do well during pilot season theaux . . .
Marcy Walker as Abby! HA!
I think JFP is three for three so far. Firstly, I’ll say that I was never on the Marcy Rylan bandwagon, not when she was on GL and definitely not as the naked heiress Abby. Not that I think she’s a bad actress. She was fine playing Lizzie, but she also seemed kind of limited to me. And then Y&R hires her, aging Abby in a way that I thought was just ridiculous — who ages their teenage characters to make them 30?!? — and turning her into this celebutante parody that didn’t make sense for the character or the show as a whole. I know Abby is an important character, being a Newman and an Abbott, but I say they rest the character for a while and then bring her back completely retooled into something that makes more sense. Or don’t bring her back, since Brad is dead and Ashley lives in Salem now.
I do wish Marcy the best of luck. I could see her doing great outside of soaps. She’d make an adorable romantic lead in something romcomy, or actually I could have been her being really good in the Beth Behrs role in 2 Broke Girls.
