The Bold and the Beautiful’s Sally Spectra, and her plan to fake a terminal illness, was outed in late July of this year. Luckily, she managed to get away with her deception scot-free thanks to a tsunami of tears and a plethora of apologies. Her performance should be applauded and her victory celebrated – just like the milestone that actress Courtney Hope is all set to celebrate.
Happy Birthday, Courtney Hope!
And that’s because she was born on August 15, 1986, in Dallas, Texas, which means that this fan-favorite is turning 34 years old today! Hope declared that she wanted to be an actress at the age of three, but her parents didn’t take her assertion seriously until she was 12 – and only after she secured a role on Walker, Texas Ranger.
Hope was then enrolled in an accelerated performing arts school where she learned the craft of acting and participated in dance classes and gymnastics. Upon graduation, she attended college and continued to pursue her dream.
In time, she secured roles in a number of commercials and in various primetime programs including Joan of Arcadia, Grey’s Anatomy, CSI: Miami, Criminal Minds, NCIS: Los Angeles, Bones, and Transparent.
She also appeared in a number of films – both independent and mainstream – including Prowl, Revan, Swelter, Allegiant, and Displacement. Between 2017 and summer 2020, Hope played Sally Spectra on BB.
Hope is also well known for her voiceover work in the video games Quantum Break (where she “played” Beth Wilder) and Control (where she “played Jesse Faden). She also made a small contribution to Star Wars: The Old Republic – Knights of the Eternal Throne.
Hope has been dating fellow daytime performer Chad Duell (Michael Corinthos, General Hospital) since 2015. The couple currently resides in L.A. with their three dogs: Stevie Nicks, Bella, and Bentley. In her spare time, Hope continues to dance, as well as practice yoga and kickboxing. She also loves to write, edit photographs, and paint.
