I think it's time Y&R put the girl on contract. I like Rylan as Abby and don't want to see her leave.

OH you said Restless Fan...just posted on CBS FB and Josh...we viewers need Abby w\Marcy...someone at Sony, CBS, & Y&R needs to step up. If they think it's a fair trade for Brandon...not even close to Y&R fan's heart. Another Abbott written out... Angry

This is what Y&R gets for not putting that girl on contract. She would be awesome as Lulu.

Love her! She's is always able to rise above and sell the horrible material she's given to work with. I really hope she tells Phelps to drop dead and jumps to GH. The role of Lulu needs some serious star power... the likes of which JMB was never able to deliver.

Y&R's huge loss is definitely GH's even bigger gain. I didn't always love the writing for Abby--even though Rylan almost always sold it--but she's one of the few high-profile casting decisions that MAB got right during her tenure. I've loved alot of what JFP/JG has done with Y&R since they took over but letting Rylan go in the first place, then bringing her back as just recurring, has been the most egregious error JFP has made up to this point.

I'm pissed at Y&R for this! She should have NEVER been taken off contract....enjoy her GH...she is definitely a find! You will love her as much as I came to love her on Y&R...deep sigh

Yes, I can see her as Lulu. She has that spunk and attitude. Won't be surprised to see Brandon B on Y & R soon. It seems they are having a trade-off of actors. I just want to see all the soaps to survive!

bleh...this is a miscast if I ever saw one. You can't just pop in a popular, hyped up actress in a beloved role haphazardly. I always found Marcy Rylan's characters extremely annoying. Her voice, the wordy dialogue, feh...nebuch!

This seems more about ABC one upping Jill Phelps and Sony/CBS.

I'm not sure if I'm more sad that JMB is leaving or more excited to see Marcy in the role!!.. This is EXCELLENT news!!!

LOVED her on GL and Y&R .. but Y&R letting her go was just silly to begin with..

Can't WAIT for these LuLu/Maxie scenes Love

The fact that Rylan is no longer on YR is JFP's fault. She took her off contract & im sorry but would you rather play a role that you may have a few days of work a month or go to GH & play a role that is always frontburner? Ill take GH for 1000 Alex.

Angrierblackerman: Really? I see her more as the daughter or Luke and Laura than JMB just because she seems to have a bit of spirit that JMB didn't bring to Lulu.

Don't get me wrong I have always thought that JMB is a good actress I just never bought her in the role of Lulu.

I was really nervous that Cartini would pick someone dreadful like Yvonne Zimaless or Farah Fathless! Honestly, I think Jennifer Landon would have been the best actress for this role, but since she doesn't seem to have chemistry with that many male actors on soaps, I kinda knew that casting her might be problematic. I ain't mad about this!

Too bad Phelps and company over at Y&R didn't realize what a good thing they had before it was gone. They are too busy obsessing over that idiotic Adrianna chick and the annoying actress who plays her to focus on the REAL talent they have on the sidelines!! Their loss........

I cant wait to see her going from Victor Newmans daughter to Luke Spencer's daughter. She is a very strong actress. You know when she enters a room that much I have to say. Im very lucky I watch both shows so these GH/YR crossover/recasts work for me. If Brandon goes over to Y&R I hope they hook him up with Melissa Clair Egan.

Soap operas...forever playing red rover lol I'm not complaining though, if anyone is replacing JMB, it should be someone with talent like Rylan. I'm not a consistent viewer of Y&R but she was great on there and I didn't see much of her in the last few weeks anyways. This is a big loss for y&r.

I could see Rylan making this new role her own.

She's a strong actor, but she plays the same character over and over again. Lizzie = Abby = Lulu. She can act, it's just that she can only act one way IMO. She only has one flavor...the fast talking, manic girl with the chirpy voice.

The show doesn't need two Maxies! Lulu has matured a lot, and I feel like this is going to undo that. Ron will take Rylan's energy and make another Maxie.

Well, as I stated in a previous post, I would not have recast the role in the first place. HOWEVER, since TPTB felt the role was so crucial that they couldn't write it off and had to recast, I think this is a great choice. Poaching & soap sharing is going to become a thing now, mark my words....

I did not see this one coming at all. However, having said that, I agree with other posts that Y&R bungled this one big time and you cannot blame Marcy for jumping ship where she was only recurring and into a contract role. Smart move on her part!

Now, Jill and Josh and the Y&R casting director will need to do a search for a new Abby, that is if they plan on doing it.

I hope Marcy comes on board she is so pretty and would be perfect as Lulu! I am DEVASTATED about Brandon Barash though! He was one of the reasons I started watching GH again. He never seemed to have the right story however it was always on the fringes. Hopefully another soap will scoop him up and I will watch him! He would be great as a brother of Bill Spencer on Bold and Beautiful, he has always reminded me a bit of Don Diamont. Also very excited about Vanessa Marcil! LOVE YOU BRENDA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
