Was former Guiding Light superstar Cynthia Watros considered as a Phyllis recast on The Young and the Restless, before booking the role of grieving mom Kelly? The subject came up during a recent interview in the Dec. 16 issue of CBS Soaps In Depth. Here's what Watros said when the magazine asked about the rumors:
"That's a subject I can't really comment on, but it's interesting."
She didn't end up playing the role Michelle Stafford made infamous, but Watros could still end up sharing scenes with The Staff's former leading man. Setside sources claim TPTB are hot to chem-test Kelly with Jack Abbott (Peter Bergman).
