3 Hunks Pay Tribute To The Bold And The Beautiful On Its 30th Anniversary!

The Bold And The Beautiful

As The Bold and the Beautiful’s (BB) 30th anniversary year continues, three more past cast members want to wish the half-hour serial a happy birthday!

Ex-B&B hunks Jack Wagner (ex-Nick), Patrick Duffy (ex-Steven) and Jane the Virgin star Justin Baldoni (ex-Graham, the predatory photographer who tried to have his way with Hope) talked to Soap Hub about what being on B&B has meant to them!

Jack Wagner (ex-Nick)
“I want to give a big shout out and congratulations to Brad Bell [head writer and executive producer], the Bell family, and CBS for 30 years of B&B. They’re really slugging it out for Daytime TV.

“Soap operas have been such a huge part of American culture for the last 50 years, and to have B&B start when it did and survive this long is a testament to Brad and his writing staff and all the people there at the show.

“My time on B&B was nothing but fun and professional. I made friends there whom I’m still friends with today.”

Patrick Duffy (ex-Steven)
“I had a wonderful time on B&B. I was not stunned by this, but I was so happy to see that the cast is such a congenial group of people. They all like each other and get along so well. Being on B&B honed my craft.

“I was used to doing three pages a day in a scene with several people. I think my first day at B&B I had 38 pages! You have to be on your game. I worked with Susan [Flannery, ex-Stephanie; ex-Leslie, Dallas] on both shows.

“She was the stunning ‘femme fatale’ on Dallas! When I met her on B&B, she’d become the matriarch. She was absolutely lovely and inclusive. Susan would say, ‘You want to come to my room and run lines?’”

Justin Baldoni (ex-Graham)
“Congratulations, B&B! And happy 30 years! Being on that show was great for me. It gave me a chance to see what it’s like to learn a whole lot of lines in a very short amount of time and do multiple episodes. It was like doing theater. Everyone was really nice. I’m really grateful I got a chance to do it!”
