The Young And The Restless (Y&R) scoop suggests Karla Mosely will temporarily replace Mishael Morgan as Amanda Sinclair.
Most viewers know that Morgan recently underwent emergency eye surgery but will need time off the Y&R to recover. Mosley most recently appeared on the CBS soap the Bold And The Beautiful (B&B) as Maya Avant.
“We’re grateful that Karla Mosley, a seasoned actor and consummate professional, was able to step in to the role of Amanda during Mishael Morgan’s temporary absence,” said a statement from Executive Producers Anthony Morina and Josh Griffith.

The two actresses have reportedly chatted about the character of Amanda, according to Soap Opera Digest. “I was able to connect with Mishael, who is such a goddess,” Mosley said in an interview. “We had always been friendly whenever we saw each other around CBS, but we never had a real heart-to-heart sit-down.”
She also said she was hesitant at first to step into the shoes of such a wonderful actress. “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.'”
