    OMG! This is a dream come true. I have wanted her to be on Y&R ever since she left AMC. I can’t believe my wish is coming true. Her and Elizabeth together again! I am thrilled!

    NO WAY…I’m tired of all the re-cast!

    I really dont like it when the actors change. sometimes it is for the better, like tucker mccall, but most of the time i dont like new people taking over. i think that yall should keep original actors and actresses.

    I don’t like the new Heather…you need to recast again

  5. From W. L. Mitchell

    No offense to Eden, but it is a shock to see the extreme difference in their looks. After many months, and years, watching the show, the characters begin to be real as if they are people I truly know. Perhaps Eden will become a stronger character in time. I don’t adjust easily to change of any kind.

  6. From D. C,

    Don’t like the new Heather, want the old one back….. New Heather has no passion and is not strong enough to carry the role…..

  7. From Hennings

    No potential. Seems to be at a lost always. Please let us have the old Heather back. Thank you.

  8. From Fort Worth, TX

    PLEASEEEEEEEEEEEE, bring back the
    the old Heather, WE, out family really hate the new one

  9. From Jlc

    The new Heather is way to whiny and the tone of her voice sounds like a baby not a DA. I mute my TV when she is on!
    Please bring back the old Heather or at least one that looks and acts more like the old Heather.
    PS Love the new Abby!
