by at . Comments

Eva Marcille, winner of the third cycle of America's Next Top Model, opened up to Soapcentral.com about her new character on The Young and the Restless.

"My character's name is Tyra," Marcille said of the role that debuted on June 25. "I had a daughter as a very young age. We're from Seattle and I kind of fell on hard times and now I've moved to Genoa City, where my only family is Devon. I come there trying to seek refugeā€¦ and there's drama."

Based on rumors and spoilers, Tyra sounds like a potential love interest for Neil Winters. However, at last check, Neil already had a girlfriend. So, does that mean Marcille's alter ego is a homewrecker?

Not according to Eva: "She's a good girl at heart!"

Did she get to pick the character's name as Tyra ... or is that totally a coincidence? I just thought that was pretty cool!
