Days of Our Lives star Greg Rikaart sure has a very busy schedule. Not only has he reprised his role as Leo Stark on the hit NBC soap, but he’s also spent the last several months playing Kevin Fisher on The Young and the Restless.

Speaking to Soap Opera Digest in a new interview, Greg admitted that he’s now got some time on his hands to focus on the drama in Salem rather than Genoa City. “For better or for worse, I’m not particularly heavily utilized at Y&R at the moment,” points out the actor. “So there haven’t been any challenges there, which is great. I started back at DAYS in October, shortly after the Peacock stuff wrapped.”
That said, Greg also hinted that there’s a new love interest ahead for Leo Start. “I found out that I was coming back to be the love interest of a character who had been there,” he shares. “That relationship would, of course, have ramifications for other characters on the show, who are not at all pleased about Leo’s return and also his involvement with that character. There become multiple efforts from many different people to try and sabotage that relationship, much to Leo’s chagrin.”
