    Melody Thomas Scott: Thirty Years on The Young and the Restless!

    Tuesday, February 24 2009

    On February 27, 1979, actress Melody Thomas Scott began airing in the role of The Young and the Restless's Nikki. Over the years, the character would go from rags to riches, fall in and out of love with mogul, Victor Newman [Eric Braeden], and live through triumphs and tragedies!

    Nikki is still going strong, and is now one of Genoa City's most prominent females. We are pleased to congratulate Melody on the upcoming thirty year anniversary of starring as Nikki on Y&R! We thought this the perfect time to take a look back to the past - to when Victor first laid eyes on Nikki - stripping! Enjoy!

    I loved it most when Nikki was married to Jack.

    congrats to Melody Thomas Scott. the show lacks when she is off. I have watched for years and have enjoyed how Nikki has evolved and stands up to Victor. They will always be a great love story but i like how she has grown independent of him...you are a fabulous actress

    Melody Thomas Scott only grows more beautiful with each passing year. I certainly can not imagine Y & R without her.

    First, and most importantly, I think Nikki (Melody) is more beautiful now than she was then. Thirty years have treated her kindly.

    Secondly, odd question. I didn't watch back then. I can't imagine Victor in a stripper bar. Can anyone please give me some background?

    Thanks.

    I have to agree with "carlotta1960", it was when she was with "jack"! Victor has to always remind her "nikki", where she came from {the stripper bar}, but "victor" was at that stripper bar also, yes;the great victor newman! Not only does he{victor} still try and shame "nikki", but he still does in-front of "their" children-When it comes to "jack", no matter what he does wrong, he at some point will come clean of his wrong doings, even with "sharon"--he admited what he did, "victor", cares only of "VICTOR", I say get rid of the "old" guy !!
