In an interview with the official Y&R website discussing her 8th Daytime Emmy nomination, The Young and the Restless star Michelle Stafford reveals who she called first after learning of her nomination (costar and fellow nominee Doug Davidson), who was first to congratulate her (show runner Maria Arena Bell) and how she feels Phyllis has changed this past, more plot-driven year in Genoa City.
Y&R Insider: Do you feel like Phyllis has changed a lot in the past year? Do I dare say that she almost seemed to be more centered in the midst of all of the chaos…
Michelle Stafford: Phyllis has always been very focused. I think the coupling up with Nick's character has changed her a bit. Coupling with new characters always changes things a bit.
Y&R Insider:The storylines were very intense this year, yet it seemed like everyone seemed to have a moment to really shine in the storytelling…
MS: The stories, recently, have been more plot-driven. The plot has twisted and turned and created great character arcs. Everyone on the show is so good! We have a great cast.
Hmm, did we miss the shift when plot-driven became a good thing in daytime?
