Happy birthday to Michelle Stafford!
The actress got her start on the short-lived FOX primetime soap TRIBES in 1990, but became a daytime superstar when she debuted as Phyllis Summers on THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS in 1994. She exited in 1997 to pursue opportunities in primetime, but returned to Genoa City in 2000.
Stafford left Y&R again in 2013, and debuted as GENERAL HOSPITAL’s Nina Clay in 2014. During her stint on Y&R, she earned two Daytime Emmy awards, but Stafford’s greatest prizes are her two children — six-year-old Natalia and 11-month-old Jameson.
