See Melody Thomas Scott like you’ve never seen her before. The actress, who is known to TV audiences as Nikki Newman from “The Young and the Restless,” is making an appearance on the CBS sitcom, “The Crazy Ones.” The sitcom stars Robin Williams and Sarah Michelle Gellar.
We spoke with Thomas Scott about her “Crazy” appearance in an recent interview:
“It’s totally crazy. They wrote the role FOR me as they are big fans of mine from ‘Y&R.’ I had to assume that somewhere, in the back of their brain, my storyline on the show kind of helped them decide she was going to be an alcoholic. It’s too much of a coincidence. And, it’s funny. I think that is why people like to see Nikki Newman drink, because somehow, it becomes funny when she does it. The character on ‘The Crazy Ones’ is similar like that, certainly with the flask. This poor woman is working the library with a flask in her pocket. (laughs) I loved it! It was great!”
