Tamara Clatterbuck is back and happy to be back playing the role of Alice on 'The Young and the Restless' no doubt. With her being tied into the sex trafficking storyline, fans obviously hold their own opinions; some love to hate, some love to love and some can see that Alice has a heart and she's not as bad as we were originally led to believe when we heard of her returning. Clatterbuck who after a 12-year absence from the show reprised the role of Alice Johnson earlier this year and spoke with Soap Central about it. In her interview, Clatterbuck highlighted how she had to keep her return a secret to even her very own co-stars.

On the subject of fan reaction, especially having been revealed as part of the sex trafficking storyline Clatterbuck highlighted, "Some people love it, and some people don't love it, and some people are saying, "Look at this horrible Alice and what she's doing!" and some write stuff like, "You're so evil! What are you doing to these girls?!"

Clatterbuck received positive feedback as well. "I think on some of these episodes, when I'm counseling Crystal and they're sending Crystal away, you can see that I care about her, and I don't want anything to happen to her. And even the conversation Sharon has with Alice after, about why I adopted Cassie because I wanted somebody to love and to feel love, I think the audience is grasping that," she shared.

But what if social media was present during her early days in the Cassie/Alice storyline? Clatterbuck believes that fans would've been mean to her. "I would have been viciously hated!" she noted but further added, "But I think people see the two sides."

A recent experience certainly put a smile on her face. "I was in Ralph's yesterday, and the guy bagging my groceries was like, "I'm a huge fan of the show. I've been watching you. And I can tell you have a heart!" And I was like, "Yay!", Clatterbuck noted. Her excitement was clearly because in her former days it would've been worse"So it wasn't like in the old days, the Cassie old days. Then, it would have been, "You're horrible, you're awful, you're despicable!", she noted as she reflected. The good thing is she believes the audience is finally seeing a changed Alice: "I think people are seeing that she's has changed. And maybe because they knew the old Alice character who gave Cassie back. So maybe it was that knowledge from the fans from day one. And you know, the truth is, too, a lot of the new people that are watching the show aren't completely familiar with the Alice storyline and who Alice was back in the day, back in 1998, 1999, and 2000. They aren't familiar, so they are saying, "Who is this Alice woman? What is going on here?" And then I think it's harder for them to have compassion because they weren't familiar with that whole dramatic moment when I gave Cassie back in that courtroom. So it's kind of conflicted, and it's kind of a mix because half the fans are like, "Wait a minute." It's hard for them to feel compassion for me. But the other ones do, because they know deeply who I am from 1999. So it's kind of a mix of feelings from the fans when it comes to how they feel about the story and about me. But for the most part, the response has been great. And they say it's exciting when I'm there, and they like seeing the scenes, and there are tons of comments about my work, which is great."
