‘” (Summer Newman) may have taken home the award for Outstanding Younger Actress during , but she certainly wasn’t expecting it! Read on to find out what she had to say about her potential speech during her walk down the red carpet!

Soap Opera Network: Love the dress! You look stunning, which is so appropriate for your big night!

King: Thank you! It’s Forever Unique.

Well it’s certainly unique! Why did you choose this one over all the other dresses in the world?

I was actually trying to stay away from black, because I wore black last year, but immediately, I saw it and thought, “I have to have it!” I’m very girly, so all the detailing on the sides and the beading [caught my attention]. I was very excited for it.

Was getting ready today pretty effortless?

I had a team getting me ready, but to start, I began with a bagel and cream cheese. I had to start with my carbs in the morning to fit into the dress. Doesn’t make a lot of sense, but it makes me happy, so whatever! But the whole process was fun. To me, getting ready is the best part. I’m such a girl!

Do you have any good luck charms with you?

I have my mom. She’s my good luck charm! I’m really excited to have her here, and as long as she’s here, I’m good.

And do you have a speech prepared if you win?

No! I’m not expecting to win, so I don’t have anything prepared. And I’m a really awful public speaker, so if I do win by any kind of chance, I don’t know what I’ll do. I’ll freak out and I won’t be able to remember my own name!

    Wonderful.I am so happy she won. She has been taking a lot of heat for no reason. No one knows what the truth is in the matter and to make her the villain is just awful. She is a great actress. Unless someone knows what really happened to judge her is unfair.
    Congrats Summer.
