At A Glance

A celebrated member of the soap community, Michelle Stafford recently ended her 15-year run as Phyllis Summer on “The Young and the Restless.” In addition to her popular soap role, Stafford has been featured in several television series including “Pacific Palisades,” “Players,” “Two Guys, A Girl and a Pizza Place,” “JAG,” “Diagnosis Murder,” “Judging Amy,” “Frazier” and “VIP.” Her film credits include “Double Jeopardy,” and “Attraction.”

Recently, Stafford created her own lifestyle website, “Michelle Stafford – Doing it as a Single Chick,” where in oft-colorful language, she pulls no punches in her blogs about the experience ranging from single parenting to being a mature, new mother. Stafford also gives single-chick straight talk on style, body image, décor and men.

Coinciding with her website, Staffords’s other endeavor is the critically acclaimed “The Stafford Project,” the web series she created and serves as star, writer and producer. “The Stafford Project” is an engaging and often humorous look into the life of a 40-something soap opera star who is also a new, single mother (“exaggerated elements of me,” Stafford clarifies).

Besides her entertainment career, Michelle is active in philanthropic endeavors including “The Hollywood Education and Literacy Project” and the “Citizens Commission on Human Rights.” Stafford currently lives in Los Angeles with her daughter, Natalia.

Michelle stands 5'7" and has red hair and blue eyes. Her birthday is September 14.
