Call in to speak with the host
For 32 years, Melody Thomas Scott has been playing the role of Nikki Reed Newman on THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS.
A true fan favorite and daytime royalty, Melody began acting at the age of 3, and 5 years later, she was cast in the Alfred Hitchcock movie, MARNIE. Although recast, Melody began playing the role of Nicole Reed in 1979. The character, who was abused by her father, then became a stripper who caught the eye of millionaire Victor Newman, played by Eric Braeden since 1980. This began the on/off again romance between Victor and Nikki, the epitome of a daytime supercouple.
Fans went to task when it was not known if the character of Nikki/Melody were to be seen on Y&R again. After months of wondering, the Internet finally was abuzz that one of daytime's leading ladies was returning to the soap. Another first for Nikki AND Melody was the Christmas stand-alone episode that aired on December 23, 2011. Be here LIVE as we speak with the actress on this special Christmas episode, as well as Nikki's return to the bottle AND Genoa City, as well as take your phone calls.
It's good to talk.
