'Young and the Restless' Casting Shakeup: Michelle Stafford IN as Phyllis, Gina Tognoni OUT

Emmy winner Michelle Stafford is returning to The Young and the Restless as Phyllis, replacing Emmy winner Gina Tognoni in the role. According to Daytime Confidential, Tognoni has been let go from Y&R after a five-year run.

Stafford will be leaving General Hospital and the role of Nina to reprise Phyllis, a character she played from 1994-1997, and then again from 2000-2013.

Tognoni posted a statement on Instagram: "Five years ago, I was blessed to embrace the incredible character of Phyllis Summers Abbott. I am beyond grateful for the creative experience that The Young and the Restless has given to me as well as the amazing relationships I made with the cast, crew/staff, producers, and writers. I love my Genoa City family, which made it easy to give 110% every day. My long commutes always went smoothly because I loved where I worked and the people I worked with!
