Possible replacements for Victoria
Mon, 12-13-2004 - 3:08pm

THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS currently is auditioning actresses to assume the role of Victoria Newman, vacated one year ago by two-time Emmy winner Heather Tom (now Kelly, ONE LIFE TO LIVE). Christie Clark (ex-Carrie, DAYS OF OUR LIVES) is currently up for the part; so is Christina Chambers (ex-Molly, AS THE WORLD TURNS; Maria, SUNSET BEACH), while BAYWATCH babe Nicole Eggert, who had been under consideration, is now out of the running.

Also rumored to have the latest inside track is Carrie Genzel (ex-Skye, ALL MY CHILDREN). Interestingly, Y&R actually hired Genzel, a Tom look-a-like, to play Victoria back in 1997, after recast Sarah Aldrich (Courtney, PORT CHARLES) was let go; Genzel, however, never saw airtime as Y&R worked out a last minute deal that returned Tom to Genoa City.

(I could not see Nicole Eggert as Vicky - & I'm not sure about Christie Clark - I think about her as Carrie on Days.
