Tognoni joined the cast in 2014 as Phyllis Summers and had been brilliantly portraying her character for long 5 years. However, nothing lasts forever and we are sad to say that we won’t see Phyllis on the screen anymore.

Playing that character helped the 45-year-old to earn a Daytime Emmy Award for her outstanding performance. But besides career success, Gina also got a whole bunch of new friends, who threw for her an emotional farewell party.

Saying last goodbyes

The Young and the Restless cast organized a special party for Gina Tognoni to say a heartfelt goodbye. The actress shared a few photos from the event on her social media, saying the words of gratefulness to her colleagues, who joined her.

It’s not known when Tognoni's final episode will air but it’s highly likely that we will still be seeing her pretty face till the end of May.

But who will take her place? It’s believed that Michelle Stafford will play Phyllis after Gina. Stafford is not new to the role as she originally portrayed the character from 1994 to 1997.

We are sad that Tognoni is leaving but it would be interesting to see how Michelle Stafford will reprise her old role again.
