Did she worry about stepping into big shoes, as Hunter Tylo previously occupied the role for several decades? Allen quipped:
Well, considering I am a size nine-and-a-half, big shoes have never been an issue for me; I feel quite comfortable.
Does Allen want Taylor to end up with on-off beau Ridge (Thorsten Kaye)? She mused:
Oh, God. Okay, if I was Taylor’s friend, I would be like, 'Girl, stop! What are you doing? Go. I don’t want you to go back there; he is just going to hurt you. You need to work on your issues.' However, I think Taylor—I think when it comes to actually the characters, it’s always a fun idea that Taylor and Ridge are going to up together. That’s how I think all of this started, that triangle, so I think it’s always going to be a fun thing to play. I wonder how long that is going to play out, but I would love Taylor to end up with Ridge if it was—if he wasn’t running off again, you know?
Of working with Kaye, she shared:
He’s jus such a cool guy. Thorsten is just such a cool, relaxed guy, which is like—he’s always like, 'Don’t worry about it; everything’s fine.'
