Annika Noelle keeps a relatively low presence on social media so it was a real treat when The Bold and the Beautiful star popped onto her Instagram stories and opened up the floor to questions. In case you missed it, Soap Hub has the major highlights from the impromptu Q&A session.
Annika Noelle Answers Your Questions
Noelle, who plays Hope Logan Spencer on the half-hour serial, was asked what her favorite scene was with co-star Matthew Atkinson (Thomas Forrester). “I’m proud of the dedication & hard work @jmattatkinson and I put into this storyline,” Noelle responded, along with posting a photo of Thomas talking to the Hope Logan mannequin, whose “voice” was performed by Noelle.
“My knees were shot after running multiple takes in heels but so worth it,” Noelle said when asked what it was like shooting the “Liam in jail” storyline. The actress is referring to the climactic moment when Hope ran towards Liam Spencer (Scott Clifton) just before he was going to be taken away in a van to a different prison facility.
The actress was asked what her favorite Angelina Jolie movie was? “Girl Interrupted, Gia, Tomb Raider, and Mrs. and Mrs. Smith were all contenders — but when I think about a movie I could watch over and over and never tire of, this is it,” Noelle replied showing an image of the Jolie 2010 flick Salt.
Noelle’s fans wanted to know when the actress was getting married. (The actress announced her engagement a while back.) However, the star is keeping her private life, well, private. “Might have already happened…” she hedges, “who knows…”

Playing Hope keeps Noelle pretty busy but one follower asked her which famous person it is that she’d like to play in a biopic? “My fellow Christmas Eve lady, Ava Gardner,” the actress replied, noting that both she and Gardner were born on December 24. In addition to an impressive film career, Gardner made the primetime soap scene in 1985 as Ruth Sumner Galveston, mother to William Devane’s Greg.

Noelle was queried as to whether or not she’d like to step behind the lens to perform some creative endeavors. “Yes,” Noelle replied. “Things are already in the works.” The actress was also asked which Marvel or DC Comics characters she’d like to play. “The dream,” Annika Noelle responded along with a photo of DC’s The Catwoman, the role that’s been played on TV and in films by Julie Newmar, Eartha Kitt, Lee Meriwether (ex-Ruth, All My Children), Michelle Pfeiffer, and Anne Hathaway.
