According to Evans, the switches that took place were stunning, “It’s crazy. Really. First, it was Missy, and I understood why she didn’t want to come back at this time. I think she will come back maybe later but the traveling, the Covid, staying with older in-laws, everything about it, I think was rough for her.”
She also shared her thoughts on the departure of Kristian Alfonso saying, “And then with Kristian, it was just a separate set of circumstances. They are my sisters for life.”

The role of Hope Brady has not been recast and there is no word if or when that will take place. But Cady McClain has stepped in as Jennifer Horton. Of this move, Evans said, “I worked with her on [where Evans played Sierra and McClain was Rosanna]. In fact, there were many times where we would ride together to the studio in a car service. But I’ve loved her forever and admired her work. She’s doing a great job.”
Evans is referring to their time together on the legendary daytime soap As The World Turns.
