Although THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS doesn’t comment on actors’ contract status or storyline, a glance at the soap’s credits would indicate that Julia Pace Mitchell (Sofia) has been put on recurring status with the show. The actress herself confirms it, but confesses she doesn’t necessarily mind!
“I’m so happy to be here,” she enthuses. “Every time I come to work, I’m excited to see Jeanne [Cooper, Katherine] and Stephen [Nichols, Tucker] work. This show has changed my whole life. It’s really cool. These are some of the hardest working actors in show business.”
But the free time the actress enjoys when she’s not working on Y&R is definitely not going to waste. “I’m starting a hair care company,” Mitchell reports. “It’s a jojoba oil-based company. I’m doing workshops in Dayton so people can go to www.JuliaPaceMitchell.com to learn about acting, hair care and what it takes to work in this business!”
