On-screen, Courtney Hope plays The Bold and the Beautiful’s Sally Spectra with brash and sass and a heart of gold underneath — just like her namesake.
Off-screen, Hope’s not afraid to show her emotions either. She recently posted a touching tribute to a late family member.
He Ain’t Heavy, He’s My Brother
To convey her love for her late brother, Hope selected a photo that shows him with his arms spread wide open, and his eyes appearing to be closed as he takes in his surroundings.
She wrote that her brother helped opened her “eyes to the importance of living life to the fullest and for being the best big brother I could ask for…”
No one could argue that Hope isn’t honoring her brother as she is indeed living life to the fullest. Raised in Plano, Texas, Hope, a dancer and fitness enthusiast, quit public school in order to attend a performing arts school so she could move to Los Angeles and pursue her dreams of becoming a professional actress.
Hope’s boyfriend is Emmy-winner Chad Duell (Michael, General Hospital) and she has a dog named Stevie (after singer Stevie Nicks).
Read on for the full Hope’s tribute to her late brother.
