Julia Pace Mitchell who plays Sofia on The Young and the Restless confirmed to CBS Soaps In Depth that she has been bumped to recurring status by the number one show, although the series itself would not comment on her contract status as is their policy.

Mitchell stated she is still thrilled to be in Genoa City:  “I’m so happy to be here.  Every time I come to work, I’m excited to see Jeanne Cooper and Stephen Nichols work. This show has changed my whole life. It’s really cool. These are some of the hardest working actors in show business.”

The actress also revealed she is starting her own hair care company which people can learn about on her website: www.JuliaPaceMitchell.com.

So soapers, what do you think of Sofia’s storylines on Y&R?  Do you think the character has been badly written? Would you like to see Julia have more airtime?  Let us know!

I saw this coming, although I saw her more of being let go then put on recurring.

I don’t care for the character of Sofia anymore. I don’t like that they had her sleep with Neil and then have his baby. It should have been Malcolm or they should have gotten someone else for Neil that was not engaged (broken up, whatever) for him to have a child with.

The last straw with me with Sofia was when she wanted to up and leave with their son to New York. Now this is just ME, but I have more traditional values about family. Being a stay-at-home mom of two little ones and happily married, I don’t see how they could have justified having Sofia just move with Neil’s son without a second thought from Neil. I mean you just don’t do that. And it is not like Sofia is the better parent since Moses has a nanny. I mean she can’t make an argument that Moses needs her more than his father because they are both working parents and spend about the same amount of time with him. It is not like she stays home or works part time or is on maternity leave to bond with her child.

Either they have some great story for Sofia with a new love interest or they keep her on recurring (to come out once in a while) like Gloria is feasible. They can bring her out for run-ins with Neil and when Tucker needs to talk business.

Chances are they are going to kill off her character so that Neil will have sole custody of their son.

Bring Drucilla back. Victoria Rowell and Sharon Case made this show what is today for a lot of us middle aged people. Been watching 34 straight years. They two had me at HELLO <3

I really think they need to bring a Malcolm for Sophia and PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE bring Victoria Rowell back as Drucilla for Neil. Lily just re cast Chelsea KILL off.

Miss Mitchell is not a good actress. She brings nothing extra in any of her scenes. I can only hope she’s going to be off the show soon. If the new regime has any interest in getting viewership up, they should ask Victoria Rowell to come back as Dru.

Isn’t ‘who a character is’ or ‘what a character becomes’ w/n a story, driven for the most part by the writing/storyrunners vision?

Considering the writers during each of their tenures and understanding that actors should be able to bring certain nuances to even poorly written s/ls, not sure there was much difference in their choice of presentation – just the preceived end result..

We can now officially add Genie Francis to the list of actors/actresses being let go from Y&R! Genie was axed by Y&R today due to “budget reasons”. Will Daniel Goddard (Cane) follow her out of town and never return? One can dream!

Oh well –
GF’s Y&R character was all over the canvas, but there were enjoyable moments. Hope DG does not follow; I know unpopular but saw more acting ability (even with poor s/ls) than with some that are constantly lauded.

Honestly not surprised. The character of Sofia has been through around like a hockey puck since she joined the show, and her needy nature is just not something I like seeing. She’s more a recurring character.

I can definitely see Sofia as a recurring character. I’m glad to say she’s going to be around from time to time.

What storylines? Overall, Sofia has been boring. She did get interesting when she told Harmony to back off, but that’s about it.

Sofia was first introduced as a strong and smart business woman and Tucker’s right hand. Unfortunately, the writing for her character has ruined that first impression by making her drab and needy. Romantic entanglements don’t have to make a person weak, but in this case, they did. It’s too bad….

Next step, axed…please? Can’t believe she wasn’t fired with the rest of them or even before some of the ones let go.

Nathalie Kelley Says She Is Not Returning To DYNASTY For Season 2

In a surprise admission during an interview with E Online, one of the core members of CW’s Dynasty reboot, Nathalie Kelley revealed she is not filming season 2 of the primetime sudser when it resumes filming next month.

Kelley plays Blake’s (Grant Show) wife, Cristal, who ended the season one cliffhanger in a precarious predicament after being shot by Claudia Blaisdel (Brianna Brown), while the Carrington mansion went up in flames, as well.

Kelley tells E! “I won’t be returning for Season 2.”  She went on to say as of the fate of Cristal:  ” Is it a coma? Is it death? … I actually don’t know. But I know that I’m not going to Atlanta in July, that I’m staying (in Los Angeles) … I’ve got my life back.”

Dynasty returns for its all-new season beginning on Friday, October 12th.

So, disappointed to hear there will be no Nathalie on season 2 of Dynasty?  How do you think they will write Cristal out of the story:  Coma … her body found will not be found … or is she truly dead?  Share your theories in the comment section below.

ABC Officially Picks Up ‘Roseanne’ Spinoff, ‘The Conners’ With No Roseanne Barr Participation

Word on late Thursday afternoon is that ABC has now officially moved forward and gave a pick-up to the Roseanne spinoff series, The Conners.   

As viewers know, there had been speculation that the series would revolve around Sara Gilbert’s character of Darlene, but now the other concept with the entire family in the title is the direction the new series will go (although it is said to be the “working title” of the series.)

The Conners received a ten episode order and will make the fall TV schedule, and will reside on Tuesday night’s on ABC at 8PM.

Roseanne Barr’s controversial tweets led to the network’s swift decision to cancel her series.

In the new deal, Barr will have no financial or creative involvement in The Conners after reaching a settlement with series producer, Tom Werner.

The Conners will feature the rest of the Roseanne core cast including: John Goodman, Laurie Metcalf, Sara Gilbert, Lecy Goranson, and Michael Fishman.

According to Deadline:  It is unclear how exactly Barr’s character will be written off but ABC describes it as “a sudden turn of events.”  On the new show, after a sudden turn of events, the Conners are forced to face the daily struggles of life in Lanford in a way they never have before. This iconic family – Dan, Jackie, Darlene, Becky and D.J. – grapples with parenthood, dating, an unexpected pregnancy, financial pressures, aging and in-laws in working-class America. Through it all, the fights, the coupon cutting, the hand-me-downs, the breakdowns – with love, humor and perseverance, the family prevails.

In a statement ABC commented: “The Conners’ stories demonstrate that families can always find common ground through conversation, laughter and love. The spinoff will continue to portray contemporary issues that are as relevant today as they were 30 years ago.”

A major turning point to greenlight the series came when the fact that the new series does not feature Barr’s character Roseanne Conner, which rights to which she is said to maintain, paved the way for an agreement with no Barr.

So, glad to hear The Conners will continue sans Roseanne? Comment below.
