Melody Thomas Scott celebrates 40 years on Y&R with a glam photo shoot.

It wouldn't be an exaggeration to call Melody Thomas Scott a living legend. She has been beloved for 40+ years as the Nikki Newman on The Young and the Restless. In addition to her big anniversary on the show (in 2019), Y&R has held the number one Daytime drama spot for over 30 years!

To toast and document the momentous occasion, Watch teamed up with photographer Andrew Eccles and stylist Christina Pacelli for the ultimate cover photo shoot for our March-April 2019 issue. The gorgeous results are fit for a queen. Scroll to see more fabulous photos of Melody Thomas Scott!
