Young and the Restless Michelle Stafford Responds to Phyllis Haters

Young & Restless’ Michelle Stafford Sets the Record Straight: ‘You Can Throw Your Hate Somewhere Else’

The characters are less angry than The Young and the Restless' Phyllis. Over the years, she has divorced, committed crimes, and broken her heart.

What he did not do, however, was something like a science fiction film that jumped into the body of artist Michelle Stafford.

"My name is Michelle Stafford. This is not Phyllis Summers. This is the character I am playing with. I am not to blame for that character's actions. So you can throw your hatred elsewhere God bless!"

In a recent interview with Stafford, he explained why it is not always a good idea to try to control the actor's actions - to leave them in the lurch.

"You have to go with the text," he said. "If you try to apply your ideas to the words, it will be difficult and the performance will be disrupted."

He believes that everyone should stick to what they are paid to do.

Whenever a character pushes something, it is always the kind of suicide that he or she already believes.
