Mishael Morgan reveals why she went recurring on The Young and the Restless. Check it out here--->>>
Emmy award-winning actress, Mishael Morgan recently announced her decision to go recurring on The Young and the Restless as Amanda Sinclair. In an interview with Soap Opera Digest's Dishing with Digest, Morgan opened up about the factors that led to her decision. Morgan was offered a three-year contract that would keep her around Genoa City for at least the next three years but she had already made up her mind about a very hard decision. She shared, "when they asked me if I was going to sign back on for three years, it was just a moment of like. And, just to be clear, when I came back, they really stepped it up and just kind of showed me my worth financially, in storytelling, in everything, and that’s why it was so hard for me to go and have these meetings."
Morgan talked about her family living in Canada and wanting to have her children reconnect with them, especially after the family tragedy that she experienced in March. She continued, "But I met with everybody and I just told them that this time around, it’s not anything other than the fact that I think this is just the right time for me to kind of move on. Just in light of the pandemic and being away from my family—literally, feeling trapped in L.A.; all of my family was in Toronto and just crossing the border was a nightmare—and just kind of having that experience and kind of really reevaluating what I felt was important for me at this time in my life. And I just felt like I wanted to tell more cutting-edge stories, just in light of Black Lives Matter, and just see what else is out there that I can be connected to. 'Cause I love Y&R and I love the soaps, but there’s so much going on right now. There’s so much on all different platforms that I just wanted to have this opportunity to go out there and see if there’s another story that I can tell or that I can be an impactful part of. "
