Now that Theo (Tyler Johnson)brought to Genoa City some key intel he shared with Sally Spectra (Courtney Hope) to payback Kyle Abbott (Michael Mealor), The Young and the Restless is adding another character to the mix.

Enter Elizabeth Leiner in the role of Tara Locke, who over the last several episodes has been much talked about.

Look for Tara to arrive on the canvas on the March 1st episode of the CBS Daytime drama series, as she shares a colorful past with Kyle including that they presumably share a child together … a son named Harrison.

Apparently, the two had an affair when Tara was married to ruthless businessman, Ashland Locke.

The role is said to be recurring as of now.

Leiner has appeared in Lifetime’s Drop Dead Diva and Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders, also Suburban Swingers Club and Nanny Killer among other credits.

OOHH here we go again-
Kyle is going to be lovey for his old love
and there will be baby drama..
Summer will be put aside, again.
And Phyllis will be mama-bear.
Same soap plot just different players.
It will be interesting, hopefully,
and we just might stay awake through an episode LOL
I’m not a Kyle and Summer fan, so let it roll.
oohh what is the age difference between Kyle and Tara?
((real-life and soap-life?))

Oh, Su000, why, why, WHY? Another blah character in the endless past of Kyle Abbott. They finally have a really good actor in the role and then sink him with Summer and a seemingly endless libido. Is this the ONLY plot they could regurgitate? And so many other characters remain unused. For shame!

When this new actor first arrived on the canvas as the new Kyle, I thought he was exciting, different, kind of a throwback to the old classic movies. When he was paired with Lola, he was on fire. They should have taken their time with their courtship. I loved Lola and her food truck! Kyle was funny and cute as the entitled rich boy trying to order a Cuban sandwich from the beautiful, street-wise, chef. It was their contrasts and differences which made them so interesting. Now that he’s with the forever petulant and sulky-Summer, he’s dull and bland.

You’re so right, Harry. I don’t know if it’s Summer dragging these guys down (look how great Matthew Atkinson is on B&B vs. how dull Summer’s Austin was) or the writers. But either way, they’re crippling some very promising young actors. Kyle and Lola were a real team.

I’m glad that I stopped watching this crap. 2020 made me realize that I have wasted too much time of my life on this lousy soap .

I’m upset, too, Annette. WHAT are they thinking? This past year has been one of the worst ever, and I started watching in 1973! I may soon take a page from your book.

Me also. They need to fire all the writers And hire some that know the past and can write for now. You just don’t realize how many fans you have lost!

Y&R needs to get it together! Too many new characters no one cares about and many existing characters left to drift at sea. I liked Sally Spectra on B&B, but not her Phyllis Summers 2.0! Adam.needs to be sent out of town permanently. He can’t be redeemed and is nothing but a big baby! Sharon needs to go back to therapy, because that chick is warped! And Theo, need i say more?? A future Adam,blaming everyone for his problems.

Another tired, auxiliary story about the dull duo of Kyle and Summer. Meanwhile, no Kevin, no Chloe, no Jill, Paul, Lauren, Michael, Nina, Traci, Ashley….why? Seems like they’re trying to clone B&B with all these under 40s’ stories. I’m not happy.

Now even though Jenny died, Kim would be up for figuring out how the character could be resurrected or how she could take part in the primetime reboot of the ABC soap opera called, Pine Valley.

In an interview with Soaps.com, Kim shared on being part of the reboot: “All they have to do is ask, and I’m there.  Sure, Jenny died, but someone asked me the other day if we ever saw her body. So maybe she’s out there, somewhere… ”

Former All My Children stars and real-life duo, Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos are executive producers of Pine Valley along with Andrew Stearn.

So, would you like to see an alive and well Jenny Gardner, or some other role for Delaney, in the All My Children reboot? Comment below.
