INTERVIEW: Lyndsy Fonseca Talks Kick Ass 2, Nikita and Memories of Young and Restless' Jeanne CooperBy Susan Hornik on August 22, 2013
Former The Young and the Restless star Lyndsy Fonseca (ex-Colleen) has kept busy since leaving the fictional town of Genoa City on the CBS Daytime soap. In addition to gearing up for the airing of the fourth and final season of Nikita this fall on The CW, Fonseca is also logging a lot of time on the big screen.
Daytime Confidential recently caught up with the talented and beautiful actress, who was at Comic-Con to promote her new superhero flick Kick Ass 2. While staying so busy in primetime and film, does Fonseca still have time to keep up with the goings-on at Y&R? READ MORE

It looks like The CW’s Nikita is getting another soap connection. According to Soaps in Depth, former All My Children and The Bold and the Beautiful star William DeVry will be playing one of the show’s secret keepers, a guardian. The actor tells In Depth, "It looks like I'm doing six episodes and counting." Nikita airs on Fridays and stars The Young and the Restless grad Lyndsy Fonseca. Her former Y&R co-star Thad Luckinbill has also appeared on the action-packed series.
They still got it.... CBS Soaps In Depth is reporting former The Young and the Restless co-stars Lyndsy Fonseca and Thad Luckinbill will mix it up once again on The CW's Nikita. Luckinbill will reprise his role on the primetime series as Nathan, Alex's (Fonseca) neighbor on Feb. 10. Luckinbill will make his Nikita debut on Jan. 27.
The secret is finally revealed! Last week, former The Young and the Restless star Lyndsy Fonseca set twitter (and my inbox) a buzz last week by hinting about an upcoming reunion with her ex co-star Thad Luckinbill. Fonseca tweeted:
Dear #Y&R fans, JT and Colleen will be reunited today after 5 years.....oh shit!
CBS Soaps In Depth is reporting Luckinbill will join Fonseca on Nikita as Alex's neighbor, Nathan. No word on when the episode will air.
Some former soap stars try to play down their time on soaps, but Nikita star Lyndsy Fonseca tells the San Jose Mercury News her time on The Young and the Restless, as Colleen Carlton, helped prepared her for primetime.
Q: You started out by working for three years on "The Young and the Restless." Do you look back fondly on your soap opera days?
A: Oh, that was so long ago. I was so young -- just a baby. It really prepared me well, though. It taught me how to learn lines. There would be times when we'd do 80 (script) pages a day, compared to seven to 14 for prime time. It was like a TV boot camp. READ MORE
