COURTNEY HOPE ON JOINING Y&R
Soap Opera Digest|November 09, 2020
Courtney Hope admits she was stunned when she got the call to cross over to Y&R as B&B’s Sally Spectra.

“Somebody from Y&R reached out to my reps and asked, ‘Hey, we’d really like to write Sally into our show. Would that be something Courtney would be interested in?’ ” recalls the actress. “The second I heard that, I was like, ‘What?’ Of course, my response was, ‘Um, yes! Absolutely!’ I love Sally, and I love [CBS] Television City and everybody over there. I’m still reeling from it. I’m very honored and, quite frankly, flattered.”

A conversation with Co-Executive Producer/Head Writer Josh Griffin confirmed for Hope that she made the right decision to continue playing Sally. “He gave me a feel for what they were planning and wanting to do as well as hoping to do and I really loved it,” she enthuses. “When I first got on BOLD, Sally came to L.A. and was just really rarin’ to go with her career, but that all got derailed by some love drama. When everything was done at BOLD, I thought there was still so much potential left for Sally, so I’m thrilled that I’m getting the opportunity again to play that out.”
