Whatever Happened to Kyra on ‘Reba’?

TV shows often undergo major cast changes, like when Aunt Viv was replaced in The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air after Season 3. Other times, characters disappear without a trace, sometimes with pretty chilling implications, like Judy Winslow vanished from Family Matters without any explanation. I mean why is no one talking about the missing kid?

Reba fans also noticed that Kyra didn’t receive a lot of screen time in Season 5. In fact, she was only in 2 episodes, so what happened to her?

What ‘Reba’ fans may not know: Scarlett Pomers was battling anorexia at the time of her absence.

Actress Scarlett Pomers played Reba’s middle child with a sassy attitude, always providing quips and comebacks at her young brother Jacob and brother-in-law Van’s expense. The sitcom helped launch entertainment careers for many of its stars, although Pomers hasn’t taken many roles since the show ended in 2007. She did, however, start a band called SCARLETT which released an EP in 2010 titled “Insane.”

As a result, she only appeared in two episodes in the show’s fifth season. After successfully completing her treatment, she returned to Season 6 and the show writers handled her exit from the previous season deftly. When Kyra walks into the door of Reba’s house, the show’s titular character asks her where she’s been, to which Kyra replies, “I went to get something to eat.”

Scarlett finished out the show’s sixth and final season and, shortly after doing so, announced that she was retiring from acting and was intent on focusing her efforts on photography and music. She’s often found playing at the House of Blues and Whiskey a Go Go.

Interestingly enough, there’s a lot to suggest that Scarlett’s acting career could very well have carried on after Reba, as she received tons of acclaim for another role she took on prior to the sitcom.

In Star Trek: Voyager she played Naomi Wildman, a half-Ktarian half-human character for which she won the Young Artist Award for Best Performance in a Drama Series From a Supporting Actress.
