Y&R- Brenda Epperson WANTS to RETURN!!

I chatted with Ms. Epperson this past week and she's thrilled and humbled that fans still remember her and want her back . She encouraged us to call the studio, continue campaigning, and let TPTB know there is another Ashley out there that we'd LOVE to see back. She has tons of respect for Eileen and was NOT interested in returning the first time that ED was out & out fired without landing on her feet. She even said it was Eileen's role, she was sure she'd be back, and no way would she want to go after her job after that.

But she's CLEARLY more than ok with returning this time around. She's ready and if Josh Griffith is serious about writing for Ashley, they need to bring Brenda back. She admitted to not being a diva and contract negotiations would likely go smoothly on any and all money issues.

So can someone PLEASE post the CBS/Y&R contact info? Is Josh Griffith on Twitter? We need to make our voices heard to make this happen because she even said while she still has many friends in the cast & crew, nobody has bothered to call her and obviously, she's never worked with JFP and JG. She's such a delightful and down to Earth woman and 100% deserves a 2nd go-round on Y&R in light of Eileen's absence. She EVEN implied and all but said she'd step aside if DAYS ever let Eileen go and she wanted to return to Y&R. Talk about a class act.

And she's still STUNNING. Here's a pic she posted on her FB today:

I wouldn't mind seeing her back, but I think Ashley needs some time away, so I'm in no rush to see the character again for at least a year and a half.

I also don't know how interested the show/Sony is in having another actress play Ashley again (even though Brenda played the character already). Even though Ashley is off the show at the moment, they're still using pictures of Davidson as Ashley on Jack's Newman desk, and at the Abbot house.

I believe they still have to pay Davidson each time a pic of her appears on the show.

Now that Eileen is successfully on DAYS, I'd definitely consider bringing Brenda back. She's they Ashley I grew up with, although I do associate the role more with Eileen. I never thought of her as a second rate recast, she was top notch and was a huge part of Y&R in the 90s. When they recast with Shari Shattuck, it killled Ashley.

I am not really expecting it but I'd love to see her return as Ashley. She's the only Ashley I ever cared about, and even though that Y&R is long gone, I at least might give a damn about the Abbott family again.

Anyway, I'm glad she knows she has fans here - she played the role for long enough that she deserved the recognition. Until I came here I sort of thought I was the only one who was a fan of her Ashley.

I hope she knows that some of her better scenes as Ashley have been going up on Youtube recently (some of this has been put in the Y&R articles thread).

Shari gave me nightmares.

I'll never understand why Shari Shattuck was ever cast in this role after Brenda left, other than being married to Ron Moss at the time.

One of the strangest recasts I've ever seen.

Count me in as a fan too.

Fixed!

Ashley needs to go back to work in the Jabot lab. I don't think the character has been in the lab in YEARS. That was once such a huge part of her character.

Why does everyone hate Shari Shattuck so much? I'm just curious. Shattuck was playing Ashley when I first started watching and I didn't have a strong opinion on her either way.
