Their characters may be the pariahs of Genoa City, but Y&R’s Jason Thompson (Billy) and Gina Tognoni (Phyllis) sure had fun playing the complexities of the taboo affair that turned into a huge scandal. In their first Soap Opera Digest interview together, the  actors talk honestly about their first impressions of each other, working together and their reactions to finding out that Billy and Phyllis would be getting involved (“I am not a big lover of infidelity and it’s hard for me to watch sometimes,” says Tognoni).
