Skye wasn’t on THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS for very long, so it’s understandable if even loyal viewers might need a refresher on this particular character. She first appeared in April 2008, played by actress Laura Stone, and left in July. The vixen returned briefly in March 2010 and then again in June of that year before meeting her final fate in November.
Skye Lockhart was an old friend of Adam Newman‘s who tracked him down in Genoa City to catch up. After winning a lot of money playing poker with David Chow, Skye disappeared and a dismembered body found at the Newman Ranch was believed to be hers based on the Harvard ring discovered with it. However, a few months later, Adam faked his own death and fled to Brazil where he reconnected with Skye. When Adam was discovered and forced to return to stand trial in Genoa City, Skye showed up at his arraignment offering to pay his bail if he married her.
Once she was Mrs. Newman, Skye hired a top lawyer to get Adam off and they started “The Newman Fund” to make them millions of dollars. She was clearly wearing the pants in the relationship and slept with Jack Abbott to make Adam jealous. When their scheme fell apart, Skye lost everything, including Adam. After an angry confrontation, she disappeared, leaving everyone suspecting Adam had killed her. But in reality, Victor Newman had agreed to help Skye fake her death in order to frame Adam and have him imprisoned for her murder.
Having fallen in love with Adam, Sharon Newman tried to help prove his innocence and tracked down a lead that took her to Hawaii where she found Skye very much alive. During a hike to a volcano, Sharon confronted Skye and during their heated argument, she fell backward over a cliff. Sharon wasn’t strong enough to pull her up and Skye fell into the volcano to her death. Unfortunately, Victor had been watching from afar and destroyed any evidence of Skye’s existence so Sharon was unable to prove that Adam hadn’t killed Skye. Later, Adam was freed and Sharon was accused of murdering Skye, but she was eventually acquitted when it was proven the death had been an accident.
