Marcy Rylan The Next To Go as The Young and The Restless Continues Its Cast-Cuts!

We did not see this one happening!  The talented Marcy Rylan (Abby Newman) also found out that she has been let-go from the number one soap, The Young and the Restless today!  Earlier, we reported that Genie Francis (Genevieve) was pink-slipped with the show citing budget cuts as the reason, and according to Soap Opera Digest the same holds true for Rylan.   She was told it was a budgetary issue which precipitated her dismissal.

One source told SOD, “No one ever imagined that Em’s [as she is known by the cast] job would be in danger. After all, her character is a Newman and an Abbott. This just proves that there are going to be a lot of surprises with these budget cuts.”

Rylan took to her Twitter account this evening confirming the news of her departure tweeting, “I had a blast at Y&R and I’m taking all those awesome memories with me! I am so excited to see what will come next! Love you all! XOXOXO

So what do you think of Rylan being shown the front door? Good move or a really dumb one?  And, who do you think will be next to go in Genoa City?  Let us know!

Dumb move, and I heard Debbi Morgan was let go too, So my guess Darnell Williams could be next.

I was shocked. There will not be any Abbotts left. Kyle is the worst and so is Chelsea. I pray they go! I think they need Abby! Drucilla MUST come back asap!

No I wanted to see how Kyle was going to handle Summer. Chelsea is pathetic but endearing in a sad way.

OOOH I LOVE Abby! Sharon is the only favorite of mine left! Why don’t they kill off the girl who is so bad at acting Chelsea instead???

I don’t watch Y & R any more, but I always liked her as Abby, and I loved her as Lizzie on GL. I would be great if she showed up on my show. Days of Our Lives needs some women in that age bracket for all those single guys running around Salem….Hopefully Genoa City’s loss will be someone else’s gain SOON.

If she ends up on DAYS I will start watching that one again, that’s for sure.

Excellent idea…Marcy Rylan as a recast of Belle perhaps? Either GH or DAYS needs to grab her.

Phil
Guest

Better idea would be for her to show up as Serena Baldwin on GH! GH is the best written show on daytime, and one of the best written on tv period! Marcy deserves a well written character to sink her teeth into. Come on Frank and Ron, make it work! Kristina can go back to school to make room for Serena!

I pray then they at least bring Drucilla back

Let’s get real people. This show is doomed and no one can save it. It is really sad because back in the day((William Bell,creator/writer), it was the best soap on the planet. And Bold and Beautiful was # 2!

Y&R has gotten awful lately and this is just the latest. If Harmony goes next, I won’t be sad as quite frankly her and Neil bore the crap out of me. What really has me tuning out Y&R though is the dragged out stories (Paul’s trial, Victor missing, Phyllis’ history rehash, etc. All these stories have been taking too long to resolve with no end in sight. Oh and why does the show insist certain characters have the same conversations over and over again? Like how many times must I see Michael demanding the truth a million times from various… Read more »

my only comment…..If you are a blonde female on YnR…..your best move is to make an appointment with the hairdressers on your show ASAP. A dark brown/black head is “now in charge’….

Abby can be irritating, but should the character be shown the door, I don’t think so. There are other characters who have not caught on, who should have been dismissed before Genie and Marcy. JFP is at it again!!

Not suprised with Eileen Davidson being let go. I can only imagine what JFP is going to do next. The show did need an overhaul, cast was too big. Would be all about Drucilla coming back with a different actress. NO VICTORIA ROWELL.. She causes to much trouble. Just my opinion.

Wasn’t Miss Davidson released under the production team led by Maria Arena Bell?

TBH, I am not surprised. With Ashley gone and Tucker not really in her life, there’s no point of holding onto Abby nor Emme. I am not too upset with this casting decision; loose ends need to go and she’s a loose end. It’s the business.

DUMB DUMB MOVE. I love Marcy/Abby. The character adds a lot to the show. There are so many other characters I’d cut before Abs.

Guessing Carmine is also out the door.

Robin
Guest

This is a BIG mistake!! MAB never gave her a storyline worthy of her talent. There is so much that could’ve been done with Abby and Marcy Rylan would have been up to all of it! There are so many other characters that are dead weight on Y&R right now – this doesn’t look good for the main families on there!

The cast needs paring. Budegtary issues aside, there are just too many players on the canvas. Y&R once played out without Newmans and Abbotts. Once upon a time, they were the new families. Perhaps JFP and company have a new family unit planned to come to power in Genoa City. Or the show will make major use of core characters and keep them very busy. Fall will bring winds of change to Y&R, it seems. And I know it will cause lots of buzz here. Are you ready for that Michael? Also: I think the liberal SORAS-ing of the younger… Read more »

That’s really too bad. I think Marcy brings a lot of charm to her character. And I also think she’s a pretty decent actor. They’ve saddled her with some lousy storylines but she’s always been watchable.
If they need to thin the younger herd – and they do – then they would do better to get rid of the folks who play Eden and Kyle – and do that ASAP.

Donna
Guest
Donna

I agree I rather that Eden and Kyle go. I have no attachment to either of them as soon as Eden clear ‘s Paul. Then they made the stupid move to get rid of the only two that we do have an attachment to with Abby and the new Noah. When Kevin was just fine. The biggest mistake was to had these kids grow up before their time. That’s why we loved Cassie so much is because we watched her grow up. They have made Sharon into a monster. I can hardly watch Phyllis. I want the old Nick and… Read more »

Kevin barely showed up and was a bore as Noah, that is why there was no buzz when he was released.

Well it’s not like they’ve been giving her much story or screentime lately. It’s a surprise, but not that much of a surprise. Others should go before her, just based on sheer history and connection to the canvas, but I won’t lose sleep over this.

Best of luck to the actress.

Depends on who you care about. I like Genie Francis but she is being wasted here as well as Debbie Morgan, but Marcy Rylan brings a lot to the show. She out acts the rest of the younger cast.

Ryan
Guest
Ryan

This is a stupid move. This is the first cut I don’t agree with. Marcy is the best young actress they have. she was great as Lizzie on Guiding Light also. This makes me scared of who else JFP plans to off!

Hopefully one of the other three shows will be smart and swoop her up soon!

Christine
Guest
Christine

Oh wow. I am just shell-shocked by this one. Marcy Rylan is an absolute sweetheart and it breaks my heart.

I do not believe this ONE is for budget reasons. I just bet that JFP already has someone in mind to REPLACE Marcy Rylan as Abby. Mark my words. It isn’t because of the $. I smell a rat in this one!

Beth
Guest
Beth

You probably right. JFP will do to YnR what she did to GH.. She has NO alligence to anyone. All are far game. I do feel for Marcy R. She just returned from her second maternity leave. Another out of work person. Have been attempting to figure out who the person is that she will write the show around as she did Maurice B/Sonny. As all my posts concerning this have ended YnR loss is GH gain. JMO

What is wrong with them? Are they crazy cutting out Abby? A core character from TWO core families gone? That is just too stupid, are they writing how to ruin the show or what!

Scott (ATWT Fan)
Guest
Scott (ATWT Fan)

I can see how Abby is gone; Ashley left town and her relationship with Victor isn’t as solid since Brad died so I can see why they’d let her go. She’s a loose piece of the puzzle. Unless Eileen came back, I never saw Abby sticking around.

And PS: Since someone is stealing my identity, I’m adding “ATWT Fan” to my title!

I think Marcy did an outstanding job as the brash and sassy Abby! Going to miss seeing her; she was always so unpredictable and brought a LOT of life to that character. I just hope they don’t let that hunky Marco Dapper go now!! Y&R needs that eye candy!!

The Abbotts: were always my favorite. the lone Jack…. it’s kinda sorta like not enough now. back to just Jack. course, there’s Billy. but, no John, Mamie, Ashley, Traci, Abby.

Budget cuts. Then why do the networks pay the hosts of talk/information shows so much? JFP is going to ruin Y&R!

Liz

Because it’s only like 3 or 4 hosts to pay. Soaps have more people and the vets get paid the most separately. Talk show are also cheaper to produce.

marcy rylan being let go is a tragedy. she is a wonderful actress. poor debbi morgan and genie francis i will miss them dearly. someone should poison jill pharren phelps coffee. she is turning into a witch. jill is a coward. what a stupid woman. why don’t you fire daisy eden kyle. i heard there is more firings. without marcy rylan i may not watch young and the restless again. jill pharren phelps almost killed general hospital. now she wants young and the restless cancelled. i hope they fire jill pharren phelps very soon.

This is a big disappointment. I love Marcy, and thought “Abby” added the spice and unpredictability that you can enjoy on soaps.

As talented as she is, I know she can find other work, but I will really miss her on Y&R, if I continue to watch much longer.

Good luck and best wishes, Marcy!

Harmony was boring. You think Victor marrying Sharon and Cane’s 3458 history rewrite was good storytelling? MAB wrote a bunch of BS for 4 years. SHE needed to be fired. If you do not like what JFP has wrote for past soaps then you are welcome to stop watching the show. Most Y&R viewers have not seen her past work so we will give her a chance but we do not want to see MAB’s horrendous work anymore.

Beautiful, talented actress, but Abby is annoying and poorly written, plus I’m so over and tired of aging legacy characters and turning them into bratty teenagers or young adults with chips on their shoulders. It’s just plain jarring to the longtime viewer.

This show is #1 but has less than 5 million viewers watching daily which is not good for soaps especially compared to the golden age. Only MAB’s castings and characters are getting axed so far where they were not well received by most of true Y&R fans.

Silly line, budget cuts, Guess I need to to take a budget cut, stop watching it and save a little electricty. Bad move but we were all waiting for this to happen. She’ll ruin this show like she has all the others. Thanks be she is out of GH and it is GREAT now.

Y&R Execs …this is ridiculous! Marcy Rylan is a great actress …and she brought lots of fun and her own sense of style to the show! If you want to make cuts …cut the crappy Sharon storyline …we’re over it …boring! Paul’s storyline …is dragging a bit and that needs to get some fire underneath it. Eileen Davidson should have never been cut from the show. They’ve tried different “Ashley’s” over the years …but nobody owned the character like Eileen! The Kyle-Eden shag-fest is getting a little old …and how about her memory by the way! And now I suppose… Read more »

HI!

She gave that ” pizazz, you viewers, young and Not so old enjoy seeing.. My husband who is in his late 60’s got a ” kick” seeing her..

If we are doing cast cuts get rid of the actors who should be an embarrassment like Finn, Neal, pity party Nikki (how much longer do we have to watch her revolting drinking and whinning) oh and lets not forget Lavonne Winters. Horrible actors….lets give someone else a try! Please! It isn’t that the stories are not interesting it is that they are such a waste of time. Who wants to watch bad acting. Put them on a plane with a crash where they are permanently dead.

I loved the old Abey Newman, I think Y and R is making a huge mistake! They are bringing on all these new characters, some story lines are weak and boring! Hopefully won’t get rid of Billy and Victoria, I also love Chelsea, Dylan and Avery! Hopefully Y and R won’t forget the older characters that got them to forty years!

You were totally fantastic and I am saddened to hear you are gone. You will do well in this industry. Your hot, sexy, cute and damn sassy girl, keep it up and be strong. Missing you

The soapy Filthy Rich has been short-lived.  News tonight has that the series featuring Sex and the City favorite, Kim Cattrall and former Guiding Light star, Aubrey Dollar (Ex-Marina) has been canceled by Fox in its first season.

Emme Rylan Addresses Reports Of Her Exit From General Hospital & Update On Plans With Family

Several hours ago, Emme Rylan (Lulu) of General Hospital took to her Instagram story to talk directly to her followers, friends and fans about her rumored exit on the ABC daytime drama series, and to share some changes in where she and her family will be living.

At that time, Emme updated everyone that since the landlord sold the house she has been living in with partner Don Money and their three children, that they had not found a suitable home for them to live, in Los Angeles, after their extensive search.  So for now they were going to put their things in storage and go on an extended road trip with the entire family in tow … in a car… under Covid-19 safety protocols with her kids still distance-learning, and that she would be documenting the trip on her Instagram account,

After she shared her original update, she later went back to her Instagram story to clarify her earlier statements after many fans were following up with her asking her even more questions.

 

Rylan shared:  “I am getting a lot of questions that I cannot answer …  people are kind of being confused that maybe I chose to take a vacation or take time-off,  so the only thing I can say is “no, I did not choose this.”  I can’t say anything else.  There you go.   That’s all I am allowed to say.   So, this trip is us taking an unexpected turn of events and turning it into something positive and fun for our family. ”

Earlier on her IG story, Emme addressed the reports of her exit from Port Charles explaining: “I am not in a position to be able to comment on the work stuff, so in terms of General Hospital, I am going to keep that topic quiet. All you need to know is that I love everyone there, we all love each other, I’m okay, and all of your messages of love are amazing … I love you guys so much — but I just can’t talk about it. ”

Then as to her plans with her family she shared: “We, meaning my family and I, have decided to do something completely insane. I have never done anything like this in my entire adult life. We are currently packing up our entire house and putting it in a pod and putting it in storage here in Los Angeles, and with only our suitcases, we are going to go on a Covid-safe, epic road trip.  I have been working every single day, Monday through Friday on a soap opera since 2004?  I have only been in New York and L.A, and I have never really explored life outside of this bubble.”

So, what do you think about what Emme shared with her fans and followers? Comment below.
