Young and Restless Head Writer Josh Griffith "Adores" Jess Walton and Jill Abbott!
Could brazen bad girl Jill Foster Abbott, and her phenomenal portrayer Jess Walton, be on their way back to Genoa City? It's looking more and more like it. The Young and the Restless' new executive producer Jill Farren Phelps—whom Entertainment Weekly occasionally confuses with the aforementioned fictional Jill—talked about Walton's potential return recently in TV Guide.
It seems JFP isn't the only one up for a JFA reprisal. In the Sept. 10 issue of CBS Soaps in Depth, head writer Josh Griffith had this to say about the actress and her iconic character:
"I adore Jess, and I've always thought that Jill was an integral character to the show."
With Walton's temporary leave of absence up in October, let's hope Jill comes home soon. I need for her and Kay (Jeanne Cooper) to tussle in the Chancellor attic again!
