There’s no word yet on how it might affect Amanda’s screen-time on The Young and the Restless, but her portrayer, Mishael Morgan, recently underwent a medical procedure that might have her resembling the character of Patch (Stephen Nichols) on Days of our Lives!
Mishael Morgan Undergoes Eye Surgery
“So this happened!” Morgan shared on Instagram. “Emergency eye surgery not fun; but saving my vision, rocking a new sexy pirate look and one crazy story for the books… pretty fun! #blessedandgrateful #outofcommission #piratelife.”
The actress’s co-stars and daytime pals posted messages of well-wishes to their recovering co-star. “Wishing you the speediest recovery,” wrote Brytni Sarpy, whose character, Elena, is currently Morgan’s onscreen rival.
Christian Jules LeBlanc (Michael) went for humor by posting: “YAY!!!! PIRATE STORYLINES ARE THE BEST!!! ❤️❤️❤️.”
“Oh no!!! Get well soon!!!” shared Melissa Ordway (Abby). while another YR co-star Lauralee Bell (Christine) chose to share her thoughts with emoticons: “❤️😘.”
“What?!? Sending you healing energy!! 💗,” posted Tamara Braun (Ava, DAYS). One of Morgan’s followers deduced what exactly her condition was that necessitated the surgery. “Detached retina?” queried @taralouwebb. Morgan confirmed the online “diagnosis” by responding: “@taralouwebb you got it! Lol.”
Morgan made the YR scene in 2013 as Hilary Curtis, a woman determined to get even with Neil (Kristoff St. John) as Hilary believed he played a role in the death of her mother Rose. A lot’s happened since then! Hilary passed away after being in a horrific car accident caused by Lily’s (Christel Khalil) negligence. She went to jail and Hilary went to that great soap in the sky after sharing a romantic reunion with Devon (Bryton James) on her deathbed.
But Morgan wasn’t done with YR. She returned the following year as Amanda Sinclair, a lawyer, who came to Genoa City, handling a case that challenged Devon’s rights to his late grandmother, Katherine Chancellor’s (Jeanne Cooper) estate. Devon was stunned to see the uncanny resemblance between Amanda and Hilary.
A year later, the show confirmed what YR fans had suspected from the beginning — Hilary and Amanda were twins, separated at birth. Amanda was recently reunited with her birth mother, Naya (Ptosha Storey).
Soap Hub wishes Morgan a speedy recovery from her eye surgery. The Young and the Restless (YR) airs weekdays on CBS. Check your local listings for airtimes.
