Call in to speak with the host
Two-time Emmy® Award winning actress Michelle Stafford stars in the #1-rated “The Young and The Restless” viewed by more than 20 million people every day in some 20 countries worldwide. Michelle joined the cast of “The Young and the Restless” in 1994 and has since developed her role of “Phyllis” into one of the most popular and vivacious characters on daytime to date.
Michelle’s career began when a modeling opportunity presented itself, taking her to such far-away destinations as Japan, France and Italy.
Michelle’s first job, the teen afternoon soap opera “Tribes,” was followed by several commercials and TV show guest appearances and culminated in her starring in two plays directed by Academy Award® nominated and Tony Award® winning actor Charles Durning. And in one of his plays, “Savage in Limbo,” the Los Angeles Times touted Michelle as “the sensational Michelle Stafford.” But it was when Michelle nabbed the role of “Phyllis” on “The Young and the Restless” that her career took its biggest stride. The producers initially intended the character to come and leave quickly, but after only one month, Michelle had created such a stir that they knew they could not let her go. And within her first two years on the show her talent had earned her an Emmy® for Best Supporting Actress and two consecutive Soap Opera Digest Awards.
She recently launched a new webseries, "The Stafford Project."
It's good to talk.
