Looks like Mishael Morgan is set to exit The Young and the Restless as Hilary Curtis. TV Source Magazine first reported the news on Wednesday (June 6) that the Canadian actress would be leaving following unsuccessful contract negotiations.
Fans of the character and the Hilary/Devon (Bryton James) pairing are urged to voice their support by calling the CBS comment line at 323-757-2345. Twitter users can also tweet out to Y&R’s head writer/executive producer Mal Young (@malyoung). The timing for “Hevon” fans couldn’t be worse as Devon and Hilary have found their way back to each other and are expecting a child. Having Hilary and her unborn child perish in a car accident would be devastating.
Losing Morgan would be a big deal for Y&R. Although she joined the series in 2013 as a foil, her character has become Genoa City’s leading vixen, a soap staple following in the footsteps of Jill Foster Abbott — something much needed on this canvas. This would also be a huge blow to the series as far as representation goes in the daytime industry. Let’s hope that Sony and CBS recognize Morgan’s worth.
