Given that Liam is torn between two women on The Bold and the Beautiful these days (Steffy and Sally), it came as a bit of a surprise that the show would reintroduce a recast Hope to the canvas. But that’s just what B&B has done!
Newcomer Annika Noelle has assumed the role of Hope, last played by Kim Matula. Here’s a look at Nolle’s first tape day, which will air on Monday, January 8.
The actress has dyed her brunette hair to match Hope’s familiar blonde color. There’s no word on what her storyline will be, but a post to Instagram may hold a clue.
The photo, posted below, shows that Hope returns home and is greeted by her mom Brooke (Katherine Kelly Lang) and surrogate dad Ridge (Thorsten Kaye).
(No word yet on if Hope’s return means we will see her biological pop Deacon, played by Sean Kanan, in the near future but anything’s possible!)
