The changes were tough, Evans told Soap Opera Digest

It’s crazy. Really. First it was Missy, and I understood why she didn’t want to come back at this time. I think she will come back maybe later but the traveling, the Covid, staying with older in-laws, everything about it, I think was rough for her. And then with Kristian, it was just a separate set of circumstances. They are my sisters for life.

But she is thrilled to welcome Cady McClain as nuJennifer. Evans shared:

I worked with her on [where Evans played Sierra and McClain was Rosanna]. In fact, there were many times where we would ride together to the studio in a car service. But I’ve loved her forever and admired her work. She’s doing a great job.
