What would the Young and the Restless (Y&R) be without their leading ladies? We can relate to them; they make us laugh, cry, and sometimes, they make us want to pull our hair out. But truth be told, the land of Genoa City simply wouldn’t be the same without them. While the Y&R female characters are incredible, they could never come to life without the amazing actresses that play them. Below is a list of the best 12 Y&R actresses.
12. Gina Tognoni
It’s never an easy task to slip into a recast of an extremely popular and longtime soap opera character; however, Gina Tognoni did so with ease. She joined the Y&R cast in 2014 and has since turned the Phyllis Summers character into something of her own. Over the years, Tognoni has racked up three Daytime Emmys, including one last year for her portrayal of the Y&R’s Phyllis.
