    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… |(

    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.

    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!

    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.

    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……..

    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 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.

    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!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Well that sucks for Y&R fans but great news for GH fans. This also reunites Rylan with Genie Francis who played Genevieve on Y&R.

    I have to admit it wasn’t till Carmine came on board that I like Rylan’s Abby. I found the character and her naked heiress crap too much to handle. I hope she has a good run at GH. The problems I had with Abby were never the fault of the actress.

    On another note I agree its a shame were being saddled with that deadweight character Adrianna over the likes of Rylan’s Abby. I don’t fell like the writers know exactly what to do with the character. I don’t buy for a moment that a wealthy to do broad like Katherine would hire someone she shared 2 scenes with during a snow storm to be her personal assistant. Another case of a new character being forced on the audience. Cut your losses JG and JFP. No one will care. Promise you!!

    [quote=InnerBeauty]AngrierBlackerman, I just logged in to say that Marcy’s acting reminds me of Maxie and then I read your comment :-)[/quote]

    This is not meant to be a diss to MR, her acting is very similar to Kristen Storms portrayal of Maxie. This recast might have worked when Maxie and Lulu were two teen girls interning at Crimson. The dialogue would be funny, and ‘OMG’ and ‘Like’ for days, but Lulu has changed as a character. Lulu has matured considerably. Unless Frank and Ron want two Maxies on the show, and they want to return to that ‘Two Wacky Teen Girls’ type relationship.

    I am usually quiet on these boards, but this really has me upended for some reason, lol!

    I think this is great news! Shame on Y&R for degrading Marcy Rylan to recurring status. MR said she has babies to feed! Let’s all remember that MR is an actress and we’ve seen her do her thing as Lizzie and Abby. I would highly suspect Frank will tone her down so she doesn’t clash with KS acting style – case in point: Ian B. and Genie F. they both were hot messes on DAYS and Y&R and have returned to GH with a much more grounded acting portrayal.

    Can we actually wait to see her in the role for at least one scene before judging a performance that she hasn’t given yet?
