Is Mishael Morgan Leaving The Young and the Restless?
Speculation has been mounting about the status of Mishael Morgan on The Young and the Restless. Morgan plays Amanda Sinclair and became the first black woman to win the award for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series at this year’s Daytime Emmy Awards. The speculation arose when Morgan’s character was given less and less airtime and most of her storylines were taking place offscreen. It became even more worrisome and distressing when Morgan’s name was removed from the credits of recent episodes of the show. And to add fuel to the fire, Morgan has been in Trinidad and Tobago (her birthplace/home country) vacationing with her family. She recently returned to the United States and spent some time there supporting her Y&R colleague, Christina LeBlanc and his broadway role in Cat on a Hot Tin Roof. She then also returned to Canada and did an interview there. Amanda has left Genoa City to care for her mother. Neither Morgan nor the show has addressed her status, so please stay tuned for updates!
