Melody Thomas Scott is best known for her Emmy-nominated work in the iconic role of Nikki Reed, aka Nikki Newman, a character she’s played for forty years and counting on America’s number-one daytime television drama The Young and the Restless. She’s also appeared in feature films with the likes of Clint Eastwood and John Wayne, and worked with esteemed directors like Alfred Hitchcock, Don Siegel and Brian De Palma.
Her new memoir “Always Young and Restless,” from Diversion Books, and written with one of OUR favorite StoryBeat guests, Dana L. Davis, is now widely available at fine booksellers everywhere. I’ve had the opportunity to read “Always Young and Restless,” and I can tell you it’s wonderfully heartfelt and thoroughly entertaining. I highly recommend it.
Melody is also known for her charitable efforts with the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences Television Cares and the Save the Earth Foundation.
She lives with her husband, Producer Edward Scott, and beloved rescue terrier, Reilly, in Beverly Hills, California
