New "Young and the Restless" spoilers are out and fans are excited to know that they have found a new Phyllis Newman. On Thursday, Soap Opera Digest shared the news about the new cast member. Gina Tognoni is joining the show and she will be playing Phyllis. She is already very well known by fans of other soap operas and they are glad to see her joining a show again.
Utica OD shared a bit of the news about this role that she will play. Phyllis has been gone for over a year since Michelle Stafford exited the show. She was the last one to play that character. Reports are that Tognoni had a flawless audition for the show. She sounds like she will be perfect for the role.
Back in 1995, she played the role of Kelly Cramer on "One Life to Live." She didn't stay on this show forever though and also spent some time on the series "Guiding Light." She played Dina Marler on this series. Now she will be taking over the role of Phyllis. After a year in the hospital, viewers are really ready for this character to return to television.
At this time, there is no exact return date for Phyllis on "Young and the Restless." You can expect her to join the show later this summer. Don't miss any new episodes of "Y&R" if you want to make sure you see the first time that Gina Tognoni arrives on the show. She is obviously going to make a great addition to the show.
Gina does have a Twitter account but she is not saying anything about the show yet. Her fans can't wait to hear what she has to say about being cast on "Young and the Restless" and her big return to a soap opera. It is going to be great to see her on a show again.
