The Young and the Restless News: Allison Lanier Opens Up About Working With Her Co-Stars

The Young and the Restless spoilers say that if there’s one thing that we absolutely love about the daytime television show, it’s the fact that the cast has just as much chemistry off screen as they do on screen. And if there’s anyone who knows that all too well right now, it’s actress Allison Lanier, who plays Summer Newman on the hit CBS soap. Here’s what she has to say about working with some of her co-stars.

The Young and the Restless News: Allison Lanier Opens Up About Working With Her Co-Stars

Speaking to Soap Opera Digest in a new interview, Allison admitted that working with Michael Mealor, who plays Kyle Abbott, has been a dream. She said, “Michael is so great! I feel really lucky that he has been my partner in this crazy world I was dropped into. There are so many wonderful things I could say here, but I think the best part about working with him is how much we laugh. We have similar senses of humor and crack up all of the time.”

Similarly, Allison has had nothing but positive things to say about actress Michelle Stafford, who plays Phyllis. She said, “I still learn from Michelle every time I work with her, or watch her. I just saw the scene where Jeremy Stark sneaks up on her in the Jabot office and she has a jump scare. I loved it. She brought so many levels to the fear Phyllis must be feeling, while also knowing that she is the reason he’s in town to begin with. Michelle and I have built a friendship off-screen, especially since getting to play this mother/daughter conflict out a bit and having some tension in our scenes together. She’s much more cool and laid back than her character is.”

And of course, you can’t talk about Phyllis without mentioning her son Daniel, played by Michael Gaziadei.  “I think we had good sibling banter right off the bat! He’s such a warm and funny guy. You can tell he is really into the craft of acting, he definitely brings the words to life in a very natural and often surprising way,” Allison shared.
