Fan-favorite Mishael Morgan is back at THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS. But unlike Chloe and Adam, Hilary has not returned from the dead. Instead, the actress is playing Amanda Sinclair, a sexy newcomer to Genoa City who has shaken up Devon’s world! “I had no idea that I would be coming back so quickly!” Morgan told Soaps In Depth. “It feels like coming home! It feels like I never left in so many ways. But at the same time, it feels different. There have been a lot of changes at Y&R since I left the show, so this does feel a little different. It feels fun, fresh and exciting! I’m looking forward to what’s going to come!”
Will one of those things include an explanation regarding Amanda’s uncanny resemblance to Hilary? “It could be in the genes somehow,” teased Morgan.
Of course, the possibility that Hilary might have siblings out there isn’t that far-fetched, given the fact that she never knew her father and was often estranged from her late mother, Rose. But whether Y&R will take the story in that direction remains to be seen.
Morgan joined Y&R in 2013 and played Hilary for five years. During that time, the vixen caused loads of trouble, but that didn’t stop Hilary and Devon from becoming a wildly popular pairing. Their love story ended with a tearjerker episode that had Hilary dying in Devon’s arms after a tragic car crash caused by Lily.
Since exiting in 2018, Morgan has returned for a few cameo appearances as Devon imagined his late wife while he tried to move on. And on April 29, Morgan appeared as herself as part of Y&R’s tribute episode honoring Kristoff St. John (Neil), who tragically passed away on February 3.
