Fans of The Young and the Restless' Mishael Morgan won't have to go long without the actress on their screens. She is already back filming as her popular alter ego, Amanda Sinclair.
Morgan was temporarily sidelined due to an eye injury she sustained in March, which left Y&R with no choice but to briefly recast the role. Viewers will see soap alum Karla Mosley (ex-Maya Avant, The Bold and the Beautiful, ex-Christina Moore, Guiding Light) step into Amanda's shoes on Tuesday April 27, but her stay really will be short, considering Morgan is already back on set.
"First day back and It's like riding a bike!" Morgan posted on Instagram today.
Though Mosley's visit to Genoa City will be short, the talented actress is likely to pack a powerful punch during her time on the soap, especially because Morgan gave her personal tips on how to bring Amanda to life.
"I was able to connect with Mishael, who is such a goddess," Mosley enthused. "We had always been friendly whenever we saw each other around CBS, but we never had a real heart-to-heart sit-down. The only hesitation that I had about doing this is that I was stepping into such big shoes because Mishael is so beloved and such a wonderful human and actor. It was great that I could talk with her and say thank you for leaving me such a wonderful path to follow. I also told her, 'I'll be happy when you're healed and able to return.'"
Morgan also knows that Mosley will make Amanda fans proud. "I am so grateful this beautiful and talented woman stepped in for me on such short notice and allowed me time to heal," she tweeted after news broke that Mosley was stepping in. "I can't wait to be back, but It comforts me to know that Amanda is in such great hands."

UPDATE (May 7, 2021): Fans of The Young and the Restless will be seeing Karla Mosley in the role of Amanda Sinclair throughout the course of May Sweeps. Though the character's original portrayer, Mishael Morgan, returned to the CBS soap opera in late April, her scenes won’t begin airing until Tuesday, June 1, reports Soap Opera Digest. This means that it’s highly possible that the bulk of Amanda's upcoming courtroom scenes in which the character defends Sutton (Jack Landron) will be played by Mosley rather than Morgan. Keep tuning in to Y&R to watch the drama unfold, and let us know how you feel about Mosley's work as Amanda in the Comments section below!
