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 talking about ending 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 younger actor is turning 20 years old today! Having decided that he wanted to be an entertainer at the age of five, 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 once 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 and (former) sister-in-law Maya.
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 filmed an episode of the Disney+ series Love, Simon.
Soap Hub would like to wish Anthony Turpel a very happy birthday and many more. The Bold and the Beautiful airs weekdays on CBS. Check your local listings for airtimes.
