Looks like there will be no more Marisa in Genoa City!  According to an item from Deadline.com Wednesday afternoon, Sofia Pernas (Marisa) has been let go from The Young and the Restless due to budgetary reasons.  But Pernas landed very quickly on her feet!

Sofia has been cast as a series regular opposite Laura Brent in CW’s genre-themed drama pilot Transylvania!.  Pernas is stepping into the role and replacing Amrita Acharia who was originally slated for the part.  Apparently, twenty four hours after she was let go from the number one soap opera on Monday, Pernas booked the role in Transylvania, and Wednesday,  got on a plane to go shoot the pilot.

The pilot Transylvania is set in 1880 and centers on Victoria (Brent), a headstrong young woman in search of her missing father who ventures from NYC to Transylvania where she teams up with a wrongfully disgraced Scotland Yard Detective, and together they witness the births of the most famous monsters and villains in history.  Pernas will play Coriander, an exotic gypsy, the leader of the matriarchal Szgany clan that runs the fleshpots of the Old City — the haunted spot where Vlad the Impaler once killed thousands of their tribe.

So, what do you think about Sofia being let go from The Young and the Restless?  How will she be written out? What do you think of Sofia’s new role on the CW pilot? Comment below!

Sorry to see her go, but Noah deserves better than a conniving liar. Luca or Victor will probably have something to do with it, or maybe she will go back to Spain to be near her daughter.

Budgetary cuts?? Does that mean there are more on the way?

Hope they replace the actress. There are several talented actresses looking for work. I hope she is not killed off.

I didn’t care for her on Y&R but happy that she got a bigger gig so soon!

My biggest surprise is that Y&R has budget issues!

I was sort of taken aback, blake. I had not heard any rumors or anything. I can take her or leave her. I could never see her with Noah, though. I hope this does not mean Robert is leaving as well.
I am as surprised as you about these budget issues.

You would be shocked at all the budgetary cuts, and the many ways if affects the shooting. I’m told there are few retakes. Used to be they’d go until they liked the performance.

Yeah Kathy it seems Y&R is going where even Guiding Light was before it was cancelled. Not saying Y&R is anywhere near cancelled, but GL only had a handful of sets and had people living in a hotel and even board meetings in restaurants lol. And they had no time to rehearse scenes either.

“Budgetary reasons”. Why not put her on recurring status if it’s budgetary reasons? But they’re okay with recasting Billy and keeping Luca.

Yeah, right….

CeeCee
Guest

Apparently that’s what they did…recurring.
I do agree about Billy and Luca, JustSaying. I want Luca gone for good. What is his purpose? Why do they need a Spaniard with a very, very old ITALIAN name as a Victor adversary/antagonist. There are one and a million ‘rich’ American “Howard Hugheses” around…..why a foreigner? Bah!!

Timmm
Guest

Same with Kyle. The actor who plays him is Australian. Where is President Trump when you need him!

Hindsight, Billy should have been written off the show until Billy Miller was ready to return.

I know, Timmm. But, at least Kyle did not look ethnic. He was believable as an American….and, he looked lke Jack!! Not that there is anything wrong with looking ethnic. But, i know what Italians look like..I i am married to one; and, I know what people from Spain look like, as well. Manny are dark complected. But, it is called the Mediterranea look from Southern Italy, Spain, Greece, Malta etc. the features are all wrong. Why make him European? Neither has that ethnic look as he. Italians are caucasian, as are Spaniards, as are Europeans. Luca plays the part… Read more »

LOL yeah sure..
Y&R has budget problem and the sky is red..

” Sofia Pernas (Marisa) has been let go from The Young and the Restless due to budgetary reasons.”

If anyone believes that, post back I’d like to know who believes that LOL ahaa!

I believe it, su0000.

Just look at the recent ratings reports. The women 18-49 demo is the soaps moneymaker. That demo has been down approximately 400,000 from a year ago the last several weeks. Concessions have to be made early to avoid problems down the road.

Rumor has it that producers were already in talks with EB and MTS about cuts in pay. Alot of budgetary decisions are based on those vets earnings.

Good luck trying to get Eric to take a pay cut!

The way those demos are yeah there is going to have to be more cuts all around. They already don’t have many sets. Imagine EB having to take a pay cut. LMAO

Liked her and Robert Adamson together. The #1 show can’t afford to pay for a decent cast now?

Jill Farren Phelps has always been over budget with every soap she’s been EP on and her co-EP Chuck Pratt isn’t helping either!

blake
Guest

That is true, Jill always has to have big events take away from budget. She started with Guiding light then Another World, General Hospital and now Y&R.

Hmmm, interesting. Budget reasons?
Her character was interesting at first and I liked her.
But for months it seemed hard to figure out her place
on the show, where she really belonged.
Wonder how she will leave. And I hate that sweet Noah
will probably have his heart broken. Again.
But good luck to Sofia in her new project!

No big loss — the character was overplayed and had zero chemistry with Robert Adamson.

Might I also suggest writing off Abby, Stitch, Max, Natalie, Luca, and Summer to help with those budget problems?

Y&R had a horrible February sweeps and the early numbers in March are worse. This show is sinking fast. Sony & CBS can’t be happy with this mess. Phelps & Pratt are ruining this show with FOJs and newbies galore. It’s time to intervene before these two do long-term damage.

It doesn’t make sense that they will let Marisa go and keep Luca. How about they get rid of all the new dead weight? Let’s see, Luca, Marisa, Max, the pregnant teenager chick, Natalie, and just for good measure get rid of Christine. Let her finally die under a tire. She has been hit twice and she won’t die. Please soap opera gods, let her go into the sunset with skidmarks on her nasty personality.

Mateo… 1. More and more, I cannot stand Max (Stitch’s kid). I think that Max is nothing but a two-faced, whiny and even brattier DEMON-CHILD…SHUDDER!!!!! 2. Shawn (that pregnant teenager) is getting to be W-A-Y too nosy. Annoying. 3. Annoyingly smart by the mouth, awkward, humorless…to me, that Natalie chick is a real downer. No Thank You. 4. I CANNOT STAND CHRISTINE, PERIOD!!!!! I’ve always found Christine’s prissy-filled personality and attitude to be a real turn-off. Oh…if and when Christine does go ‘into the sunset’ (as you say), then maybe Paul can find himself a REAL WOMAN a la a… Read more »

Agreed, Jay…except for Natalie. I think she’s a hoot…She’s nerdy and quirky….so different.
You watch; she will come out from hiding behind those glasses and bloom. Ugly duckling no more; but, a Swan!!
Christine acts like the dowager duchess from a 17th Century horror movie. To think poor Paul goes to bed with her every night. Lighten up, girl!!
I love children, I take to little actors, even at their worst. But, Max is not a pleasurable kid. He is so one-dimensional. He is an evil kid….wait and see…LOL. later, my friend.

Wish her the best of luck. Working in the biz I know all about budget cuts. I think there might have been a bit more to it than just that though. However, Y&R is pretty cast heavy and between guaranteed days paid to actors and costs of production, I’d say Y&R could use a serial killer or natural disaster storyline right about now. They really should get back to the core characters and cut away the dead wood. There are many characters, that while played by good actors/actresses can and should be let go. I’m sure she’ll be great on… Read more »

Nancy Lee Grahn Debuted 25 Years Ago Today as General Hospital’s Alexis Davis

Back on September 26th, 1996, (25 years ago today!) the new character of Alexis Davis made her debut on ABC’s General Hospital, and brought to the iconic soap opera, the talents of Nancy Lee Grahn.

Grahn, had already made a name for herself with her captivating portrayal of lawyer Julia Wainwright Capwell on Santa Barbara for which she won a Supporting Actress Daytime Emmy in 1989, in a tie with AMC’s Debbi Morgan.

Back in April, General Hospital, marked this milestone with a special episode for Grahn, that could be remembered come next year’s Emmys.

Alexis, or shall we call her “Natasha”, was introduced on GH as the daughter of Mikkos Cassadine and his mistress, whose throat was slit by Helena Cassadine, which has played into Alexis’ story for many years to come.  At the time of her entrance to the show, Wendy Riche was GH’s executive producer.

Through the years, viewers have witnessed Grahn’s portrayal of: a tough legal eagle, an honest depiction of a woman battling the bottle, failed romances, while all the time being a loving and faithful mother to her three daughters, Sam, Molly, and Kristina.

Nancy won her second Supporting Actress Daytime Emmy, this time for her role as Alexis in 2012, and has been a multi-nominee in the Lead Actress category for her performances on the ABC daytime drama series.

Here’s to Nancy for giving us 25 years of her on-screen work as Alexis!
