A fact of life on The Bold and the Beautiful and all soap operas is that kids aren’t often seen between the ages of 6 and 16, generally speaking. It’s been said that once custody and paternity have been decided, there aren’t a lot of stories to tell until characters turn into unruly teenagers!
The Bold and the Beautiful Polling
We haven’t seen Will (Finnegan George) on The Bold and the Beautiful in a while. Is it time that he was aged? Soap Hub posed this question to BB fans. Read on for the results to see if your thoughts match the majority or not!
Most of you, about 59%, think that whatever age Will is, the actor playing him needs to be able to handle strong material. We already know that George is capable of doing just that. The actor’s scenes with TV mom Heather Tom (Katie) were on her Daytime Emmy-winning reel last year when she took home the gold for Outstanding Actress in a Drama Series.
Katie told her son that no matter what happens with her he needed to live a wonderful and fulfilling life. George delivered the goods. If BB gives him more, we’ve no doubt the actor will hit it out of the park!
Some of you, about 21%, say that you’d be open to Will being aged if the plan was to give him more adult material. We remember the character of Eric Jr. changing from child actor Steven Hartman to teen heartthrob Jacob Young in late 1997.
Not only did Eric Jr. take on a new name — Rick — he also embarked on young adult storylines, falling in love with babysitter Amber (Adrienne Frantz). Will BB take Will to the teen years? Stay tuned!
The Good Son
The rest of you, about 20%, say that Will is perfect at his current age. Let’s not forget that his dad Bill (Don Diamont) has two grown sons in Liam (Scott Clifton) and Wyatt (Darin Brooks). It’s been noted on-air that Will is the first son that Bill has the chance to raise from birth, so there’s no need to hurry along his growing process! The Bold and the Beautiful (BB) airs weekdays on CBS. Check your local listings for airtimes.
