Phyllis Summers lives!
The soap opera character, originated by Michelle Stafford on The Young and the Restess, has been hospitalized and off the series for a year.
But TV Guide Magazine confirms Gina Tognoni has been cast in the role and Phyllis will soon reawaken from her coma.
Tognoni - who made her daytime drama debut in 1995 as Kelly Cramer on One Life to Live and followed that with an Emmy-annointed stint as Dinah Marler on Guiding Light - reportedly had a "flawless" audition for producers.
She will debut later this summer.
Stafford, meanwhile, recently premiered on General Hospital as Nina.
