Looking at that Abby (I believe that's Jillian Clare), I'm reminded of how everyone was up in arms over Kate Mansi being a brunette and not a blonde, like she "should have been". I mean, after those blonde twins, Abby was played by two brunettes and Ashley Benson had light brown hair for the first couple of months of her tenure. Which reminds me: new hair and make-up team, please dye Kate Mansi's hair back to her natural hair color. Thank you.
It's interesting---considering some of the recasts over the years (Stephanie Johnson springs to mind-I loved Shelley Hennig but she looked nothing like Shayna Rose) you'd think we would be more flexible when it comes to the physical attributes of the actors involved in recasts, but sometimes it's hard. For instance, one of the reasons it took me such a long time to accept Kyle Lowder as Brady is he was blonde, and I always felt that John and Isabella's son should be dark-haired like they were. Also by having a blonde Brady you couldn't use flashbacks of the Billings twins---there were some great ones like when John said good-bye to Belle and him in Aremid. Although come to think of it, considering how the Black family was being written at the time, maybe that was the point! However, when Shelley Hennig took over the role of Stephanie I had no problem with the recast, so go figure. But with KL I kept thinking, "he's blonde."
