After 35 years on the air, The Bold and the Beautiful has a treasure trove of characters who are out there in the ether and can easily be brought back to create new story or move the current story.
The Bold and the Beautiful Polling
The most recent B&B comeback to change the trajectory of stories across the canvas was Sheila Carter (Kimberlin Brown). As always, her path of destruction was wide and it’s still happening as we watched Li Finnegan (Naomi Matsuda) be chased to an alleged watery death. But, who else do you want to see return? Soap Hub asked this question of fans.
A Thorne In Ridge’s Side
We just saw Thorne Forrester, as played by Winsor Harmon, back in March when Brooke Logan Forrester fantasized about the most important men in her life. The last time Thorne was a regular on the soap, he was played by Ingo Rademacher and suddenly developed an Australian accent, so at least he seemed like he could be Ridge’s brother.
While fans didn’t specify who they say they want playing Thorne, 44% of you choose him as the character you’d like to see back on a regular basis. As Ridge’s brother and Eric Forrester’s (John McCook) son, he has ties to the canvas everywhere. He also has an unresolved relationship with Katie Logan (Heather Tom), who is definitely in need of a story at the moment.
Rick Should Roll Back Into Town
Brooke’s oldest son and Eric’s youngest son, Rick Forrester (Jacob Young) should be back on the canvas and 28% of you can’t figure out why the heck he is not. All we know is that his wife, Maya Avant Forrester (Karla Mosley), returned from Europe and announced that she and Rick had divorced and we never learned why. Rick’s L.A. return can help clear that mystery up and bring a much-needed character back to the show.
And What About Those Avants?
As far as we know, Maya is still in Los Angeles — we just don’t see her. But where is the rest of her family? Nicole Avant (Reign Edwards) is allegedly in Europe after dumping Zende Forrester Dominguez (Delon de Metz), but we do not know why. We also never heard about Julius Avant (Obba Babatunde) and Vivienne Avant (Anna Maria Horsford) leaving L.A., but they seem to be gone. If they are not, 17% of you would like to see them onscreen.
More Amber Moore
It’s been an entire decade since Amber Moore (Adrienne Frantz) was last seen in Los Angeles when she left town in shame after confessing to drugging Hope Logan. However, CBS soap fans did see her briefly in 2013 on The Young and the Restless. There was never a dull moment when Amber was around so 11% of you would like her back to cause more trouble. If Rick returns, too, it could be double the trouble.
