For her performance, Soap Hub Performer of the Week honors for Y&R is presented to Summer’s portrayer, Allison Lanier.

Allison Lanier — Y&R Performer of the Week It’s not easy to take over the role of a character after another actor has had it for many years.

However, Allison Lanier walked into Genoa City as Summer, and she hit the ground running.

We loved watching the actress showcase how much Summer enjoyed being a stepmother to little Harrison Locke (Kellen Enriquez).

Plus, we appreciated seeing how Lanier handled Summer’s reaction to Kyle Abbott’s (Michael Mealor) suddenly alive mother, Diane Jenkins (Susan Walters).

She hit just the right note between being suspicious of Diane and also allowing her husband to make up his own mind. We appreciated her strong support of Kyle.

Summer and Phyllis also had a good reunion. We loved how Lanier’s take on the relationship had her listening to Phyllis’s concerns, but also using her own judgment to make decisions.

She also did an excellent job of pointing out where Phyllis might be fooling herself when it came to her motives about Diane.

Many moments this week represented growth for Summer, and we love that Allison Lanier put them front and center.

The actress had huge shoes to fill, and she did a wonderful job.
