‘Knight Rider’ Starlet Has No Time For Romance

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – One former soap star doesn’t have time for love triangles in her new, action- packed gig.

Deanna Russo – best known for her role on The Young and the Restless – stars on the revamped series Knight Rider, in which she plays a crime fighting, brainy babe.

Between intense car chases, butt-kickings, and scenes with KITT the talking car, Russo’s character doesn’t have time for a Knight Rider romance.

Her character is in an awkward relationship with main actor Justin Breuning, but she’s not sure if sparks will fly.

Russo explains, “When you’re saving the world it’s hard to focus on love, but there is a lot of sexual tension during missions.”

The best part of her job is the action, although she’s still getting used to doing her own stunt driving.

She explains, “It’s the most dangerous thing I’ve ever done in my life! I don’t know how they gave that idea the greenlight!”

Knight Rider premieres September 24 on NBC.
