Sasha will be a fantastic SuperGirl. Lola has been written to only chop vegetables and prepare new menu items lately so obviously her talents are being wasted at Y and R, as are most of the actors there. Good luck with the new role!

Good for Sasha. Lola doesnt have much to do so she can’t be challenged very much by the role. I like Lola but she doesn’t have a story. All they give her to do is listen and react. The character can’t be missed. Sasha will be though.

Hmmm! Wonder how she got that part!
I’ve never been impressed with her acting on YL&R. She’s always been dead-pan, rarely smiled…kind of a one-note character. Very boring.
Hope she’s much better in the movie!

Hi SZima–
Lola is what, who and how she is in Y&R
because that is the character written for her to be/portray.
Sasha can only be what is written and directed
for her to be.
Lola is a useless character but- it was also a paycheck for Sasha..
Wishing her the best– a dream come true for her.

I don’t know what you’re implying but she got the part because she was what they were looking for. You’re also wrong about her acting- she was subtle and not in your face with histrionics the way other actresses are in that show. When Kyle left her for bratty Summer, Sasha showed genuine heartbreak. She can act. And Lola was an interesting character- she was a scrappy kid who worked her butt off for her success. She didn’t count on nepotism to garner her top executive positions like Kyle and Summer did.

I liked Lola and Sasha when she first came on Y&R. They gave her more meat. Lately her character has been boring. She hasn’t had any story. I’m sure she’s bored too. Maybe if Lola is gone for a bit, she can come back and get her fire back.

What is up at Y&R???? They broke up the cutest story line between Lola (food truck girl) and Kyle (Richie Rich) and now they stopped the best current story of Chance and Abby by letting Donny Boaz go. Time to leave this idiotic show and find your success elsewhere Sasha. You deserve much better so Congrats on the new role!

Agree 100% Kyle and Lola were in the midst of a hot triangle with Summer too inwhich Lola was just recoupong from being attacked by Mia. Kyle truly loved lola but was being tempted by Summer. The triangle could ve gone on forever instead Josh Griffith that hack dumped it mid story for some Theo antics. Kola should ve been the next Shick. The y n r writers dont know how to nurture young supercouples like Bil Bell did since Shick. We lost Jt and Colleen and now Kola. I hope when a real writer gets hired Kola can be… Read more »

I agree. Lola made Kyle interesting. He looked at her with utter adulation washing over his face, almost to the point where it seemed like like he wasn’t acting. He never looks at Summer that way. It’s great that Lola turned out to be the real Supergirl and not Summer.

They made it kinda stupid when Lola got so bent out of shape by Kyle’s gifts. I too thought they could make it.

Does ANYONE actually like Summer and Kyle as a couple?? Lola and Kyle were awesome together. He made her fun and she made him better. Summer needs a bad boy more like Theo.

I like Summer and Kyle. I don’t understand so much hate for Summer.

Y&R made a huge mistake putting this beautiful and talented young actress on the back burner in favor of the Forever 21, Forever annoying, Summer. Ironic that Nicholas called her, “Supergirl.”

Yea for Sasha! As Lola she started out as a feisty, confident young woman starting her own business, then they paired her up with shiftless Kyle who broke her heart, and eventually they turned her into wallpaper. Why wouldn’t she love to be Supergirl?!? I always wanted to be WonderWoman. Good luck Sasha. I’ll be watching.

Sasha will be an amazing supergirl. I hope this will be the start of the career of a great new movie star.

All the best.
