Turns on Justin Bruening - formerly of All My Children - isn't the only star of the upcoming Knight Rider movie with a soap opera past.

Deanna Russo has landed the female lead role of Sarah Kamen, the daughter of Charles Graiman (Bruce Davison), the man who created everyone's favorite talking car, K.I.T.T. Here's her back story:

As the lost love and childhood friend of Michael Tracer, she resurfaces after learning from the talking car that her father has gone missing. She and K.I.T.T. set out to find and recruit Tracer in order to help find her estranger dad.

"We were doing some pretty crazy stunts up in Newhall on this crazy, windy mountain road. It was pretty exciting. I was actually in the passenger seat, and nobody was behind the wheel," the star of The Young and the Restless said.

They have this amazing rig, a stunt driver locked down to the top of the car on the roof. He's a very talented because at no point did I feel that my life was in danger."
