The Young and the Restless spoilers say that Melody Thomas Scott recently opened up about what’s next for her character, Nikki Newman. Here’s what she has to say!
The Young and the Restless Spoilers: Melody Thomas Scott Opens Up About What’s Next For Nikki Newman
Speaking to TV Insider in a new interview, Melody opened up about her character’s first impression of Ashland Locke (Robert Newman) and what she thought of her daughter Victoria Newman’s (Amelia Heinle) marriage to him. She said, “I think Nikki was mostly enamored by Ashland. The charm just oozed out of him and Victoria was quite taken with him. What Nikki was most concerned about is Victoria’s happiness and Ashland seemed to fit the bill.”
The Young and the Restless spoilers say that this week the cat is out of the bag about Ashland faking his illness. Of course, many fans remember how Nikki once faked her illness, too. When asked what is the difference between that storyline and this new situation with Ashland, Melody said, “Indeed, Nikki did fake a terminal disease years ago when she worried that she would lose Victor to Ashley [Eileen Davidson]! But she was still young and selfish and saw nothing wrong with this bizarre plan. Ashland is a grown man, seemingly very worldly, with many successes behind him. This sort of dishonesty would indicate the machinations of a con man rather than a desperate young wife with too much time on her hands.”

What’s more, Melody also said that a “dual role is still elusive” to her and that she would love for the writers to make it happen. She also said, “It would be wonderful if we could assemble current and former cast members for a big soiree! We had a similar event at the Four Seasons Beverly Hills for our 20th anniversary. Now THAT was a cast photo!”
