Michelle Stafford (born September 14, 1965) is an American actress, best known for her role as Phyllis Summers on The Young and the Restless.



Of her many film and television roles, she is known for her scheming persona as Phyllis Summers on the soap opera The Young and the Restless. First joining the cast in 1994, she was introduced as an obsessed fangirl stalking rock star Danny Romalotti (Michael Damian).[1] Stafford left the show in 1997 at which time the role was taken over by Sandra Nelson until Stafford returned in 2000.[1]

Stafford's role as Phyllis earned her a Daytime Emmy award nomination for Outstanding Leading Actress in a Drama Series in 2003.[2] She won the award also in 2004 and was again nominated in 2007 and 2008.[3][4][5] From December 2006 to February 2007, Stafford played dual roles on Y&R, having taken over the role of Sheila Carter from Kimberlin Brown (Sheila had plastic surgery to look like Phyllis).[6]

In 2004, Stafford was a hockey correspondent for The Best Damn Sports Show Period. In 2007, Stafford appeared on Tyra Banks' talk show to help Tyra through "soap opera school."[7]
