BREAKING NEWS: Is Tammin Sursok OUT at The Young and the Restless?





Colleen may have returned to our screens this past week on The Young and the Restless, but a source close to Tammin Sursok is saying her stay won't be a long one.

"Tammin has been let go from The Young and the Restless," says the source. 'She's been really busy with a lot of other projects, so it's been hard for the soap to write her in. "

Sursok is currently filming Flicka 2, directed by Michael Damian (ex-Danny, Romalotti, The Young and the Restless), and is slated to appear in a sequel to Nickelodeon's Spectacular! entitled Spectacular 2: The Dream Continues

Now word yet on how Colleen will be written out, but the role reportedly won't be recast.

When she popped up on my screen the other day I thought "OMG? where's she been?"

The character of Colleen wasn't even missed by me. Adorable actress....but weirdly written. I'm sure she'll go off an be "Artsy" again....the writers have had her floundering since T.S. took over from Adrianne Leone....

1 down, 2 to go....tick TOCK, tick TOCK on Tyra Hamilton, or whoever the BLEEP she is!!

If the girl's busy w/a lot of ther projects then why not recast and then write for the character? My thing is that this is the perfect way for them to drop a storyline & a character they obviously don't want on the canvas and have a reason (accuse) for it. I like yah Y&R, but this another reason the love is now winding.

Since she took over the role of Colleen they really haven't shown her much. It's hard to believe that she has actually been Colleen since 2007. I can't say that I will miss her. I say the character can go away for about a year or so and then come back with a stronger actress. Maybe they can get Lynsey Fonseca back.

While I thought she would have made a great galpal for Rafe, I won't miss her. The cast does need to be trimmed.

dkp,

I could not agree with you more. There are far too many actors on this soap and they (MAB and Co) need to trim the fat so to speak. Now get rid of Tyra, Ana (it would seem they have already)Gloria and Jeffrey (either get rid of them or give them a decent storyline).

I won't miss her. She hasn't had a real storyline since she took over the role TWO (!!!) years ago. So why keeping her? Let her go and write the character off to NY for a while.

As for other character's that should go: Tyra should be next together with that little singing girl! And when they write off Gloria and Jeffrey too, I wouldn't miss them either. I would welcome the idea! But some critics like the Fisher/Baldwin clan as it is. So I highly doubt that they would get rid of Glo and Jeff anytime soon. Even though it's hard for me most of the time to have them on my screen.

Reggyreg,

Don't talk smack about Jeffrey and Gloria. They are the Demented Duo of Daytime! They're a scream.

Yay for Tammin Sursok!!! That's right girl, move on to bigger and brighter projects. Think Eva Langoria and all the others who have it big after soaps.

That's right Tammin, go after the bigger projects. She is at the age that Hollywood wants and I say go girl! I also believe that Michael Graz wants to get into the bigger projects market as well - but then its just my opinion.

Again, Tammin --- Great for you!!!

There is no need for this character on the canvas right now. Maybe in a couple of years, they can bring back Adrienne Leon.

I hope Victor doesn't succeed in his scheme of discrediting Colleen. I hate that vile man.

Say it ain't so, Joe! Well, can't say I'm sad. She's no Jeanne Cooper. But, maybe if that bat lady LML wouldn't have let Adreinne Leon go.... But, we won't go there.

If this is true you have just made my soap year Jamey. After watching her on my screen this week I thought P. Rauch and Aunt Riri wouldn't waste any time. The drunk scene was just a hot mess (not in a good way!). Where is MTS when you need her to show her how a drunk scene is done? Tammin was definitely a big mis-cast for Colleen Carlton. I don't think Tammin is a horrible actor, I just think she would have done better had she come on the show as a new character. I think the other problem was Tammin came on Y&R to break into Hollywood and her heart was never in the role, and it showed through and through. I hope they ship Colleen off to NY again and this time either bring back LF or AL to fill Colleens shoes when she is brought back on the canvas.

I'm actually kinda disappointed by this news and hope they recast the role. I want to see the legacy of Brad Carlton and Tracy Abbott continue.

The whole art thing was ridiculous to me but the way Colleen stepped into Brad's shoes following his death and took on Victor directly was great. Plus, I don't know how you write this character off at this juncture in the storyline.

Woohooo!!! This just made my day! I have NEVER warmed up to Tammin's version of Colleen....Adrienne Leon was it for me and it was a shame that she was fired because she brought some much needed heat with her male co-stars. Tammin was horrible from jump plus I didn't like how she couldn't mask her accent. I have absolutely nothing against her Australian heritage but the character of Colleen wasn't Aussie....she was very midwestern and the fact that she couldn't mask her accent was a HUGE glaring error for me.

Who they can get rid of are the non-actors. Vail Bloom, Eva Marcille,they can send Philip back where he came from, Tammin Sursokcan go too, New Adam can go as well, and Mother Mac aka Clementine Ford (who can at least act) can take a hike too! Let me not forget Amelia (Victoria) and Thad (JT). Adrienne Frantz (Amber) is not a core character so she can take a hike too. They don't need a Sean Kanan (Deacon Sharp) either.

What they need to do is play up who they already have. If you gonna spend some money on new people it better be A grown up little Nate, Victoria Rowell, or one the Abbott Children.

Last I checked, Gloria and Jeffrey weren't Brooks, Fosters or Chancellors, but didn't you post earlier you were on their team?

David,

You don't watch Y&R, so you wouldn't know that nuAdam is actually doing well. Right? Also, Amber is a great comedic character. Since Sean Kanan just joined, it's a bit early to see how he would fit.

Smitty,

I am sort of torn. I think Gloria and Jeffrey could do a better job with better material. I think they are playing the couple in a "campy" way. I think Ted has it in him to do more serious things on the show. Like enter the corporate market at Newman, Jabot or Chancellor Industries. But I know you would rather get rid of them..lol

Josstheguy,

I forgot you were a Gloria/Jeffrey fan. Don't look now..you and David have something in common..LOL...

I hope Adrienne Frantz is on Y&R for a long time. David you talk about core characters...but no one started off as a core character. Bill Bell wiped out his original characters and brought in new families. As I recall Neil didn't have any family but Bill was able to make the Winters a core family after awhile. They could easily have Amber turn out to be Kay's granddaughter or related to anyone else already on the canvas. After all Amber doesn't know who her father is. What then, she'd be a core character and it would be okay for her to stay on then in your mind because of that fact? I actually like that Amber has been able to play an island character on both B&B and Y&R.

I'd take watching Adrienne Frantz's Amber over Tammin Sursok's Colleen any day of the week.

Seattlegirl,

I think you are right. Adrienne Frantz has been a welcoming addition to Y&R!

Gloria and Jeffrey hasn't bother me that much and I kind of enjoy them. But get rid of Tyra, Eden, Noah(since he isn't on that much anyway), JT, and Victoria. They are not needed and isn't being used much. I say write her off.

I love Adrienne Frantz and really enjoy her. I hope we see Amber in GC for a very long time. She's a great addition to Y&R!
And she should go because she is not a core character, but Gloria and Jeffrey should stay because they are the "camp style" of this soap!?

And I also wouldn't want to get rid of Michael Muhney's Adam. I think he's doing a great job.
Don't know why there is any judging about Sean Kanan yet. He was just on for a couple of scenes and could be a great addition to the show that Amber has been for the last three years.

Amber is a delicious addition to Y&R. She is the former daughter-in-law of a family on Y&R's sister soap, that has connections to the Newmans, Abbotts and Chancellors that have been well-established on both shows and the actress has amazing chemistry with everyone she shares scenes with. Adrienne and Sean are the business. The Fisher Baldwins aren't  'core' either.

Reggyreg,

Actually, I agree with several of David's opinions. Y&R needs to strengthen its Winters family and add more Latino and Asian actors.

Why can't Y&R bring back Keemo? Jack is so desperate for a child, why the hell hasn't he called his elder son to come help run Jabot with him? There are a lot of talented Asian/Eurasian actors who would kill for a chance to be on Y&R.

Neil is running Chancellor, why not employ a little nepotism and bring a SORAS'd Nate to town.

Rafe and Estella are the only Latinos on this show. Rafe, unfortunately, is just a plot device. The typical minority or gay character employed to move a white heterosexual character's along. Given the publicity that the show has put into building up Rafe as its first gay character, Y&R has done a piss poor job of creating a three-dimensional character.
