For much of last year and into this year, Matthew Atkinson dominated the action on The Bold and the Beautiful. His character, Thomas, was humiliated after his scheme to dump Zoe at the altar and marry Hope was exposed.

After that climactic scene, a semi-remorseful Thomas exited the Forrester mansion and hasn’t been seen since. Now, the actor has resurfaced on social media and is letting his fans know what he’s been doing since he self-quarantined.

Atkinson took over the role of Thomas over a year ago.

The Bold and the Beautiful airs weekdays on CBS. Check local listings for air times.
