It’s A Wrap For Mishael Morgan At Y&R

Photo Credit: JPI Studios

Wednesday turned out to be the final tape date of the exiting Mishael Morgan (Hilary) of The Young and the Restless.

Morgan had made the decision to depart the CBS Daytime drama series several weeks back, and now it was time for her to say goodbye to her cast mates and her role.

Mishael posted via social media two images: one of the CBS Television City iconic building and its parking lots, and the other a gathering attended by many of her castmates including: Bryton James (Devon), Peter Bergman (Jack), Kate Linder (Esther), Daniel Goddard (Cane) and Christian LeBlanc (Michael).

Sharing her sentiments along with the images, Morgan wrote  “…and that’s a wrap. Just over five years ago, I tweeted a pic of CBS to announce the start of my journey on Y&R. Now, I have to say good bye. Sooo bittersweet. Thank you to everyone who supported me on my journey. On to the next adventure!

How do you think Hilary will be written out of Y&R? Sad to hear this was Mishael’s final tape date? Comment below.

I am sorry to see Ms. Morgan go. The character evolved into Y&R’s best bad girl with a heart in a long long time. She reminded me some of Carly from ATWT. You want to take such characters to task for their shenanigans but oh, we understand why Hilary, an outsider, may have made the choices she did. The character was interesting in there was just enough comeuppance and remorse but she could not help stumbling again. And Ms. Morgan is a joy to watch. Not sure writers paid Hilary her due, but Ms. Morgan rose above it all. Best wishes! I will be scanning my screens for your next roles!

I agree totally. Mishael was a terrific actor and Hillary was one of the best vixen’s YR saw in years. I am definitely not a “Heavon” fan so I wont be sorry to see that story end. But I will be sad to see Mishael depart. I cant wait to follow her to prime time or wherever she goes!

Hilary will lose the baby and leave poor Devon. Devon will turn to men, for comfort. Devon will come out as bisexual.

Horrible thought

Lol. That would be quite a twist! But I dont think the brass would let it happen. Many viewers complained about “Tessiah” ( Tessa & Mariah)so CBS and Sony had to tell Mal Young ( Headwriter) to cool it off. Sad because I thought they were a great couple.

Really I just don’t like the Tessa character.. cannot warm up to her at all…

Good Gawd, that will only give the bozo character more air-time, so I hope not! The actor is awful!

Honestly, DMR, we lose Dante but keep Lulu and now we lose Hillary but keep Duh Yawn! I will say it again, life is unfair.

OMG, I guess Karen, we are in the few that don’t care for Hilary, or in my case , can’t stand! Maybe we’ll see her in another role, being as nice as they say, she is in person.
Today’s show just compounded my feelings. Strutting around, and almost blowing smoke and fire, because this man didn’t know, or care who she was , Hilary Curtis, goddess to all!

Violet Lemm

I guess this is more of an addendum? Seems like the M.M lovers might be seeing more of her on GH if rumor is true. Auntie called someone to come break up Curtis and Jordan. What better person, right up her alley!

I will miss her character on Y & R. She did a great job. She could make you love her, despise her and even feel sorry for her. That is great acting. Good luck to her in the future. I am sure it will be a great one.

Davidg

I agree. She was very versatile but I loved her best as a vixen. I can’t to see where her career takes her next. I hope she pops up soon on Prime time. I love nothing better than to see hard working soap stars make the big time. She is one who truly deserves success.

LoveLines

She was a bona fide star of the show, this was not the way to treat her (not granting a proper raise) and Ms. Morgan is making it a win and taking her stellar talents elsewhere. It may be controversial and very hard to find someone who lit up the screen like her, but I’d like to see Hillary recast, even to wrap things up a bit more. I wish Ms. Morgan the best in deserved big opportunities, she is simply awesome.

It’s a shame to see her go. I think the executives should rethink losing so many good actors/ actresses the show is going downhill fast

Y&R has lost a valuable actor and I hope Ms.Morgan will return after realizing Hilary is in her blood. In the mean time, I wish Mishael (a fellow Canuck) a revegerating rest. Thank you for creative acting Mishael, Y&R won’t be the same he 76ll9v .

Wish her the best – she is a talent. But characters CAN be successfully recast – Jason Thompson, Gina Tognoni. Hope they consider this.

Harry

They should recast Jordan with Ms Morgan! Can you imagine her with Curtis? It would be so terrific to see this actress paired up with someone who is worthy of her. I am sorry–Duh Yawn just doesn’t cut it.

Celia

What a fantastic idea, Harry!! But, Mishael is sooo very sexy, and a minx; she will have the entire PCPD ( all three of them) salivating, scrambling, and stumbling all over themselves for her attention. The trio is already deficient in comportment and skill…imagine having her around?!

So sorry to see Ms. Morgan has left the show. Her vitality and talent will be sorely missed and CBS will have an EXTREMELY difficult time finding an actress whose chemistry with Bryton James will be as good.

if i was making the decision: the storyline has Hilary moving to NYC ‘indefinitely’ for a career opportunity; Devon comes & goes, etc; we dont see Hilary again until its time for their daughter to be born, and that is obiously some sort of huge drama, i suggest involving Lily, and: RECAST Hilary. In my heart i believe that there are COUNTLESS talented young women who could take over this role; as much as i am a fan of Ms Morgan, i encourage the challenge to a young ambitious actress to take the role and make it her own, make us forget that there ever was another — the way that Gina Tognoni has made us forget the fact that the character she plays was made legend by another actress– aht was her name ? umm.. or can you picture Billy as anyone other than played by Jason Thomspon? Y&R can prove good intentions and opportunities for up & comers as folks like Justin Hartley can attest.. lets wish everyone the best and hope for even more exciting tomorrows! #LoveMyMelodrama

Sorry to see her go but shes a very talented woman. She will end up in primetime and film. Guaranteed.

I am sadder to see that Sony has opted to drain the talents from the number 1 soap in the US. All this will do is drain the interest. hilary was a complicated character on screen and on paper. Written as a true soap bitch out for revenge, every chance since her first story has been a wishy washy pathetically written example of writers and producers afraid to let a black woman be hated! Hilary should be wealthier than so many on this soap due to marrying into both Winter clans. First, when Neil held her in the winter in a boat house in Wisconsin (whomever thought that plot point up i hope is frozen out of a job). She easily could have gotten half Neil’s money then. Then marry Devon, divorce him, get half his dough or a great chunk and we could see her buying Fenmores or any other company and sitting behind the desk.

Add Eileen Davidson to the mix and i wonder what Sony, in the age of the Woman, was thinkijg in not giving these women a raise!! Or a better contract.

With Ashley, Jack is not Jack or Jackie now with Ash. Tracey coming home is just the long lost sister telling us what sis has been up to and then leaving. Abby has lost her best friend and mom. Victor a good sounding board. And any number of other characters from Billy to Nikki etc a perfect story partner.

Y&R, with its bigger sets than Days, is a budget soap now. Teenagers are writing the show from their WRITING 101 classroom at Beverly Hills High. Sony wise up or you will close up shop on this soap soon.

There are few I have seen who have the ability to shift countenance like Morgan. However, her skill doesn’t move me one way or the other in the Y & R.

To her, recognize your incredible talent; go for it! You deserve it!

Celia

Hi, Tani,
I don’t think it’s so much a matter of shifting gears, per se…..they are actors, afterall. It is their ‘duty’, LOL, to play any part; depending on their talent.
I do believe that it is whether the viewer accepts the recast after having been spoiled by the original.
Nonetheless, your comment does have merit…..for example—-Billy Miller was a much better Billy Abbott than David Top. Soooo….
My best, Tani.

Another great loss. Mishael is a most formidable thespian.
I think she is pregnant, for the second time….wish her well–always!!
There is no replacement here, y’all. If there should be, whoever it is, will not do Mishael or Hilary justice. That’s a fact.

Im sorry to see the hillary story come to an end. She was the only excitement in that show anymore.Maybe they will put devon & mariah back together. I will definitely watch for mishael in other things. Shes a very tslented actress. Y&R’s loss someone elses gain. Wish her the best in her future endeavors

If Hillary is to be killed-off she will die in car accidents.
That is a standard for impacting emotional drama.
And ALL actors covet going out in a bang, not a whimper.
or-
she will get involved in Shana’s <-sp drama..
perhaps her drug addict brother will take Hillary out.

I do see Hillary being recast.

One of the beautiful and beloved actresses in the world, Diahann Carroll, has passed away in heartbreaking news on Friday.  Carroll died at her home in Los Angeles after a long bout with cancer, according to her daughter,  producer-journalist Suzanne Kay.

Carroll, who was first-known for her amazing singing voice, and then as an actress, received a Tony Award and an Oscar nomination in her legendary career. She also make television history for her turns on Julia and Dynasty.

In her role as Julia, Carroll, became the first African American female to star in a non-stereotypical role in her own primetime network series . Julia, premiered in September 1968, finished No. 7 in the ratings in the first of its three seasons, and Carroll received an Emmy nomination and a Golden Globe for her work.

And later in her career, after loving ABC’s primetime soap, Dynasty, Carroll got the attention of producer Aaron Spelling to create a role on the show for her. And thus she became the one and only Dominique Deveraux … the half-sister of Blake Carrington (John Forstyhe).

That part broke ground as well, for Diahann in 1984, became the first featured African American character on a prime time soap.  Carroll later appeared on the Dynasty spinoff, The Colbys,  In films, Carroll earned her Oscar nomination for her work in Claudine (1974),

Emmy Winner and Noted Soap Opera Head Writer; Hogan Sheffer Passes Away At 61

Over the last several hours, reports have broke that one of daytime’s most notable scribes has died.  Hogan Sheffer, who was head writer at As the World Turns, Days of our Lives and The Young and the Restless has passed away at the age of 61.

Soap Hub, first reported the news via multiple sources, however, many writers who worked with Hogan during his tenure on the soaps have taken to social media to share their condolences and their grief and remembrances.

Sheffer’s appearance on the soap scene was unexpected, especially in a genre where it is often rare for new blood to take the reins at the head writer position.  Proctor & Gamble had decided to bring in Hogan after his work as the Director of Screenplay Development for DreamWorks, not because of his writing credits for a previous network soap.  He was given trial deal as a breakdown writer for the CBS soap and 10-weeks in became the beloved town of Oakdale’s new head writer.

Hogan and his then writing team were able to turn the classic, As the World Turns around.  The show went up in the ratings and during his time with the series ‘World Turn’s’ won two Daytime Emmys for Outstanding Drama Series, and he and the writing team picked up four Emmy victories all through 2000-2004.

Next, Sheffer landed in Salem as head writer of Days of our Lives along with Meg Kelly from 2006 through to the beginning of 2008.   He would later join The Young and the Restless and team up with then head writers: Maria Arena Bell and Scott Hamner, and eventually stay with the show till 2012.  During Sheffer’s time in Genoa City, Y&R also won a Daytime Emmy for Outstanding Writing in 2011.

On Sunday, former WWE and daytime writer Tom Casiello, who was extremely close with Sheffer…  and who shared how Hogan gave him his start at writing in daytime, took to his Facebook page to pay tribute to a man who had such an impact on his life and many others.  It is worth the read here. 

Y&R writer, Sara Bibel tweeted: “Hogan Sheffer was a gamechanger for ATWT and daytime. Everyone I know who worked with him adored him. RIP”

And, iconic ATWT star, Martha Byrne (Ex-Lily) tweeted on Sheffer’s passing: “To say he was one of a kind would be a tremendous understatement. Our years at ATWT with Hogan at the helm were a rebirth for our beautiful show. Loved his writers, actors,crew. Blessed to have him on the first floor in Brooklyn ready to listen. Talented. Funny. Generous. RIP”

Colleen Zenk (Ex-Barbara, ATWT) also took to Twitter upon learning of the passing of Sheffer sharing: “I loved him, loved him, loved him… he was so good to me. Thank you for everything, Hogan. You were so loved. Especially, by me… Rest in peace…”

Michael Fairman TV will continue to bring you updates as the soap world mourns the loss of a creative force in our genre.  Share your condolences and thoughts on the death of Hogan Sheffer via the comment section below.
