Marcy Rylan on Abby's Young and Restless Return: "She's Trying Really Hard to Be a Better Person"






A more mature Abby Carlton Newman (Marcy Rylan) will hit Genoa City next Monday, Feb. 11 on The Young and the Restless. Victor (Eric Braeden)'s daughter has been taking a hard look at her life, since leaving Wisconsin for New York, said Rylan in an interview for the official Y&R website:

"For the first time, Abby is feeling a little embarrassed about her previous choices," Marcy said. "She's trying really hard to be a better person...and figure out where she fits if she's not running around naked." The character will have some interaction with paramour Carmine, Marcy confirmed, and "Abby is a little surprised by what Carmine has to say."   

Hmm...let's hope Abby hasn't grown up too much. The Fully-Clothed, Introspective Heiress doesn't sound like nearly as much fun!

OH! I disagree because I have faith in Marcy Rylan and depth she can portray. She did it with Lizzie, after Sarah but was still Lizzie. Abby will be Abby but not in the "teen set" now...thank gawd! Love I love Marcy!

As much as I like to see Marcy Rylan without clothes, I am glad that the character is maturing a bit. That will be a welcome change. Hopefully, though, she will still tell 'people the way that it is'.

She can't come back soon enough. Can't wait to have her back. Nice to hear they are going to mature her some - writers don't screw it up! Like harlee490 said, she's done it before Lizzie, so she can definitely do it again.

Since Carmine's after Lauren, I wonder who will be in Abby's orbit. Detective Chavez maybe?

If I were Abby, before I got involved with Chavez, I would want to give him a long soak in a bathtub and a shampoo and shave. He looks like he would smell really bad.

Glad she's back and the promised direction of her character.

As usual with MAB's writing, sometimes good...a lot bad, so we never really knew which Abby we got. I'm glad the current team realized their error and snapped her back up.

Chavez seems a little old for her, but I wanna see this hottie paired up with someone soon. And sorry yojoromo, I'll take him as is. Hottie.

Hottie.

I was sold on Marcy Rylan during that rare "AWESOME WEEK" of shows where Ashley and Tucker were about to get married. And Drunk Abby totally destroyed the wedding decorations while singing "Hear Comes the Bride" and then fell into the fountain. it was a CLASSIC scene to me....even if under MAB. That whole week of shows, leading up to Tucker being ran over was just brilliant to me.

However AFTER THAT....not so much...

Good. Abby's antics stopped being cute awhile ago

stoney07 -- Oh yeah. One of MABs finest, Abby running over Tucker. IN fact, Abby was one of MABs best creations. Abby suing Victor, along with Victoria and Nick, was tops, too.

I don't understand the hysteria over this actress/character. Plus she's pregnant about 75% of the time, including in this photo by the looks of it.

Just because someone somehow looks liked he'd smell does not mean that he will. Just because he could maybe use a shave and wears a leather jack is not that incriminating. It's called designer stubble, plus the slightly rough look can be extremely appealing. Doesn't mean I like that character yet though.

Am I the only one who cannot stand this character or the actress. She plays her like Lizzie on GL and I found her azz annoying then. She's a one trick pony who bugs her eyes out, rolls her neck, and gives over the top facial expressions. I would love to see this character fall into a volcano.

Not me Dyallan, I love MR and she has done what MAB was writing, on this front myself and others would have to disagree. MR isn't a bad actress it was the material, but I'm prejudice I loved Lizzie and I love Marcy. With good writing it can mature the character and Abby is needed on canvas.

The role of the older Abby was woefully miscast. Marcy Rylan may indeed be a very fine actress but she's now 32 years old which essentially completely changed the character. This was probably one of the worse SORASings to date. Abby turns up as an adult but seemly not aged a day mentally. Most of her stories were incredibly ridiculous and annoying and very shrilly acted.

However just like the newbies, the returning "vet" should be given a chance. Hopefully she will have the stories to give her that chance.

It's true that Marcy Ryland is almost old enough to play Victoria. And I have a longstanding opposition to SORAS-ing. However, that's the route they chose to go and I'm hoping they're going to feature an Abby that I like or at least understand more than I did before.

I love love love Marcy Rylan and Abby. I hope this show is worth it, b/c I think she would've made it on primetime w/o question---although recurring status means if you get something else you can bail, right? But I'll watch YR for her no questions asked.

I'd like Y&R to bring back Ashley.

Brenda Epperson was the first actress I saw in the part. Marcy Rylan physically resembles her a lot more than she does Eileen Davidson. The thing about Brenda though is that she isn't and doesn't look a whole lot older than Marcy.

All due respect, I fail to see why MR's real life age matters. She doesn't look 32 & IMO she easily passes for under 25.

She's 47 yo! Have you seen her recently? She is still beautiful. I listened 2 radio interviews one with Eileen which actually recommended her for the part of Ashley years ago and then listened to podcast of her Jerry, & Beth which was fantastic. Love
