Julia Pace Mitchell Bumped to Recurring at Young and Restless






Have Jill Farren Phelps and Josh Griffith started to quietly clean house at The Young and the RestlessCBS Soaps In Depth is reporting Julia Pace Mitchell (Sofia) has been placed on recurring. It seems as though Mitchell's change in status was first revealed during the sudser's credits. Mitchell confirmed the details to the magazine stating:

I'm so happy to be here. Every time I come to work, I'm excited to see Jeanne [Cooper, Katherine] and Stephen [Nichols, Tucker] work. This show has changed my whole life. It's really cool. These are some of the hardest working actors in show business.


So far Y&R has yet to comment on this latest development.

I was the one who tweeted her on and asked why she wasn't listed with the contract cast in the opening credits on August 8! She answered me: "gasp!! But I'm still working" Could it be that moi was the first one to inform her???

She'll be not seen or much heard of in a matter of months. Clean the house, Jill. As of now I'm behind all of it.

When JPM found out that DM was coming on the show, I am sure that she knew then that her time was limited. Her entire purpose was to have a bio baby for Neil because after taking Lily from him, they were going to also "take" Devon by connecting him biologically to another family. I just hope that Y&R sends Sofia out in a blaze of glory Isabella Brana style. Because I don't want her to leave with Moses. Let Neil raise one of his kids from birth.

Let me also be frank. In JFPs interview with Micheal Logan, she said KSJ would really do well in a HOT romance. She was not talking about Debbi Morgan's Harmony either. I would be willing to bet a pint of blood that she is talking about someone totally new. I think that DM might stick around for a minute being that she does have some chemistry with SN/Tucker and IMO Tucker is needed as a rival for Neil. There is no room for him in that war with Jack and Victor. He looks out of place in it. And Neil needs a rival in business like yersterday.

She may have just been joking...

As soon as JFP was hired I assumed the character of Sofia would be one of the first let go.

Ron and Frank - bring Genie back to GH. Now is your chance!

Laura would have NEVER stayed away this long. Never bought what Guza and JFP were trying to push with that.

Well DUH! Jill Farren Phelps doesn't do fat and she doesn't do black. Just wait til she starts knocking off all the legacy characters for being too old!

@SavePortChuck now i know JFP's a lot of things but I have to give her props for what she did over at GL with minorities. Hamp/Gilly/Kat and co reigned supreme in Springfield when JFP ran that sucker.

While JFP did a lot of damage to GH, people can't blame her for everything. Brian Frons and Bob Guza played their parts in the destruction very well.

I actually love JPM...but wasn't crazy about Sophia. I wish her the best in her future projects!

@Soapjunkie so true. Guza/Frons are to blame as well but JFP isn't absolved of her crimes either.

Thank God! She was far from believable as a love interest for Neil. I did not buy that for one nano second.

She needs to leave yesterday. She's a dreadful actress. She certainly didn't inherit any of her parents's (actors Judy Pace and Don Mitchell) talent and screen charisma.

I liked the character; Jill abhors full sized women and black characters so I'm not a bit surprised; afterall she's no Carl Webber Oh well ... so much for diversity.

May I suggest Tucker and Sophia exit at the same time? Please God, let's next write out Sarge and Harmony, and get Dru back. I want my Winters back.

Everyone seems thrilled at these latest developments, however, let's hold our breath that JFP doesn't "take out" your fav vet.

Sophia is not a character that I enjoyed. The actress was limited, IMO, and didn't have the range needed to play a role in daytime. So far, the cast cuts are making sense to me.
