Y&R'S MICHAEL MEALOR AND HUNTER KING ON “SKYLE” RETURN
Soap Opera Digest|October 18, 2021
Michael Mealor and Hunter King have similar sentiments about reprising their roles as Y&R’s popular Kyle and Summer.

“It’s like going back to high school after the summer break,” he smiles. “You’re excited to see everybody and all of the stress washes away for a little while. You walk in and it’s nothing but fun and joy and happiness because it’s like coming home.” King adds, “The days have gone by so slowly since I was last there but as soon as I stepped into that building, it felt like yesterday. I have so many friends between the crew and the actors, so it felt so nice to be back.”

The fan favorites, who are part of Victoria and Ashland’s wedding gathering, were especially happy to reconnect with so many co-stars. “I love group scene days,” King gushes. “I know they’re long and exhausting for everyone involved, but I think they’re so much fun because you get to work with people who you usually don’t get to work with. I kept saying all day long that I was getting paid for just hanging out with my friends. It was a blast for me.” Mealor notes, “I really hoped that I would at least work with Jack [Peter Bergman] and Nick [Joshua Morrow]. If I’m going to be there, I want to see everybody, so it was really fun that it was for a wedding. I don’t care what the story is, I’ll go back, but it’s more about the family that Y&R has created, so it’s a lot of fun to see everybody.”
