“I got cold when they called me and told me the story,” recalls Mailer as he spoke to ET Canada. “I was so excited. If ever there was a story about Kyle coming back from Italy and coming back to the show, it was.
Mailer dropped out of the series last year after Kyle left for Europe with his wife, Summer Newman and their young son. While away from Y&R, Mealor appeared on another iconic TV show.
“I did a little bit of work on ‘It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia.’ It was a lot of fun, ”he said. “They were funny boys and it was exciting to go from one iconic show to another.”
The 30-year-old star has revealed what fans should expect from Kyle in the upcoming episodes of “Y&R”.
“Kyle is returning from Italy a little changed,” he noted. “He lives in a foreign country and is a full-time father. What fans can expect is the image of a father bear who is really protective of his son. He was a rocky three years. Her son’s mother is a prisoner and what she thought was her father was not her father. He is mature as a man, he is mature as a father and he is also mature as a husband. “

Mailer added, “At the end of the day, he’s a little boy who lost his mother and I think everyone can relate to it. I think Kyle is wrestling with the joy that his mother is alive, but also that he has chosen not to be here for 20 years. “
“It’s great to be paired with onscreen mom Walters,” said Mailer. We both came from Georgia so we immediately connected with it. When they call me and say they’ve already hired Susan to come back, my excitement goes through the roof because it’s not just an actress I don’t know, it’s Susan Walters that I grew up watching on TV. I really wanted to learn from him because he has so much experience and so much to offer. “
