The Young and the Restless Star Allison Lanier Has Some Things To Say About Summer

Speaking to Soap Opera Digest in a new interview, Allison admitted that when she submitted her real for consideration for the Emmys this year, she wanted to show all different sides to Summer and her character. The actress put it this way, “I submitted a couple of different beats for Summer. There was the night when she found out that Phyllis — her mom died and then she went and sort of raged against Diane and just the mix of grief and anger in those moments. I had a couple of scenes from that time, and then I had some scenes where Summer found out her mom was alive. The shock and the relief from all of that, but also the just complete and utter, she did not know what to do with that information. So I had some scenes with Michelle Stafford [Phyllis] and [Michael] Graziadei [Daniel] that day, and then also Kyle and Summer agreeing to divorce.”

Allison also said that it felt like a sweet surprise when she found out that she got nominated while she was working on the set of The Young and the Restless. She recalled, “I just wasn’t thinking about the nominations at all because I was first of all focusing on the scenes that I had to do, and I also just didn’t really think that I would be in the running to be nominated. I was excited to hear the nominations just to hear who from the show was going to be nominated, but I didn’t think it was going to be me.”

The blonde beauty continued, “So once my scenes finished, I saw Josh Griffith out of the corner of my eye and I was like, what is he doing here on set, not thinking anything of it. And then he was approaching me with a smile on his face and I was just like, no way — [it] hit me. But I was just in shock. And so they announced it to me there on set, which was really, really lovely to be among my fellow actors and all the crew for that.”
