The Young and the Restless’ newest little actor is about to make his in-person debut! Soap newcomer, Kellen Enriquez was cast as Harrison Locke, son of Tara and Ashland — or biologically speaking, Tara and Kyle Abbott. The character was previously only seen in a photograph.

Only a handful of characters know the whole truth about Kyle’s affair with Tara in New York several years ago… and that very small list doesn’t even include Kyle’s father, Jack! If Harrison’s arrival forces Kyle to make it public that the boy is allegedly his offspring (no DNA test has been done), we’re sure his dad will be dismayed to hear that his son kept this huge news from him, and also to learn that his ex-girlfriend, Sally Spectra, was in the loop the whole time. Sally was the one who brought the information to Kyle’s attention initially via Theo Vanderway.

Mariah and Summer also know… but we can only imagine the reactions when Nick and Phyllis find out! While there’s no word yet on the reason for Harrison’s visit, it’s safe to assume that it will cause some amount of upheaval just as Kyle was adjusting to the idea of moving forward without acknowledging his son and getting on with his life with Summer. We’d already predicted that the Lockes would threaten “Skyle’s” wedding plans.

Viewers got their first look at cutie patootie, Kellen Enriquez, in a photo on Kyle’s phone that Tara sent him as a parting gesture before she left town after Ashland suffered a heart attack. Harrison will appear in Genoa City in the flesh on the Friday, May 14 episode of Young & Restless, according to Soap Opera Digest. Tune in to find out what goes down! In the meantime, take a peek at Summer and Kyle’s love story in our gallery.
