It’s been quite some time since RJ Forrester — Brooke and Ridge’s only child together — has been seen, or even mentioned, on-screen — does he even know that his parents are having issues with their marriage? – but performer Anthony Turpel has been busy ever since his exit and he’s currently celebrating a major milestone.
Happy Birthday, Anthony Turpel
That’s because he was born on January 26, 2000, in Los Angeles, California, which means that this talented actor is turning 22 years old today! Having decided that he wanted to be an entertainer at the age of 5, Turpel joined the cast of many school musicals despite admitting later that he was a terrible singer.
In a bid to find free acting classes, Turpel would recite a monologue from the film Field of Dreams and after one such audition, he landed himself an agent. In quick order, he began booking roles on nationally-aired commercials for products and businesses like Dodge and Jack-in-the-Box.
In 2015, he made appearances on Comedy Bang! Bang!, Henry Danger, Life in Pieces, and Future Shock. One year later, he was cast as Ridge Forrester Jr. on the CBS daytime soap opera The Bold and the Beautiful.
His debut aired on September 14, 2016, and he remained in the part until February 12, 2018, at which point “RJ” moved to Paris, France with his older brother Rick Forrester and (now former) sister-in-law Maya Avant.
Subsequent to his departure, Turpel appeared in two episodes of the FOX procedural 9-1-1 and he had a recurring role on the Netflix original series No Good Nick. Most recently, he joined the cast of the Disney+ series Love, Simon.
