On the heels of Genie Francis's (Genevieve) exit from Y&R, Digest has learned that co-star Marcy Rylan (Abby) has also been axed. "Everyone is shocked," said an insider. "No one ever imagined that Em's [as she is known by the cast] job would be in danger. After all, her character is a Newman and an Abbott. This just proves that there are going to be a lot of surprises with these budget cuts." Rylan took over the role of Victor (Eric Braeden) and Ashley's (Eileen Davidson) impulsive, attention-grabbing daughter in May, 2010.
