Julia Pace-Mitchell: Young Sista on Daytime Soaps

February 5, 2011  |  

Julia Pace-Mitchell, daughter of actors Judy Pace and Don Mitchell, is the newest face on “The Young & the Restless” and what a beautiful brown face it is. Playing the shrewd Sofia Dupre, Pace-Mitchell told AOL Black Voices that she was surprised to even get an audition, much less land the role.

“Honestly, I was just as surprised when I got the audition because a lot of times, for my type, you don’t even get the opportunity to audition for soaps,” said Pace-Mitchell.
