Courtney Hope proved she’s a powerhouse via her interpretation of Sally Spectra on The Bold and the Beautiful. Now, the actress has conquered a new domain– video games!
The actress plays the lead in Control, an interactive video game that has players in a world of supernatural phenomenon.
According to a story in Variety, the game opens with the Bureau facing danger as its headquarters is taken over by a supernatural entity known as the Hiss. The game’s heroine, Jesse Faden, played by Hope, is looking for answers in the Oldest House about buried childhood memories.
Arming herself with a weapon, Faden takes on a challenge that will help decide if she is worthy enough to hold a weapon of great power. As she passes the test, she is promoted to the director of the Bureau!
“I’m very honored to be the one they chose for this new exciting experience and journey,” Hope said, as reported by Variety. “I just want to do justice to what that means, to have a female lead and be the hero. To have the strength and ability, but also to show her vulnerability. It’s important to encapsulate all of that.”
Perhaps Jesse’s story is not unlike Sally’s in that both women find themselves stepping into a leadership role.
What that means for Jesse “is something she isn’t used to,” Hope said. “She has to be this staple for an entire organization in the midst of figuring it out, so she’s very run and gun.”
The Bold and the Beautiful airs weekdays on CBS. Check local listings for air times.
