While Detective Harding, who was supposed to be keeping the citizens of Genoa City safe, but was actually murdering people, it spelled the end of the line for fan favorite Chris McKenna (Harding) on Y&R!
McKenna, who in his younger acting days played Joey Buchanan on One Life to Live, tweeted that he has landed a guest star role on CBS procedural drama: NCIS: New Orleans. (Tuesdays 9:00PMET)
This is not the first time McKenna has played a role on the NCIS franchise, having appeared in NCIS: Los Angeles back in 2010 where he played a CIA agent.
When McKenna learned that Harding would be killed off and revealed to have murdered some of the characters in the Scooby-Doo Murder story, he related to Soap Opera Digest: “I have to mourn Harding. I mean, I love the guy. I helped make him, so I have a lot of affection for him. So, it was sad to see what happened to him and what he had done, but I just used that to make a convincing performance. During the time I’ve been on the show, you didn’t see different sides to him, so near the end, you got to see him actually be broken and sad and filled with regret and conflict, but still that hard-ass you got to know. It was nice to make that all work.”
