Taylor Forrester played a key role in last year’s baby Beth saga that energized The Bold and the Beautiful. Alas, the good doctor has been absent from the show ever since her character helped inadvertently ignite this tale.

But out of sight doesn’t mean out of mind! Hunter Tylo (Taylor) recently tweeted the names of some of her favorite co-stars and supporting players from over the years on BB.
“Jack Wagner [Nick] was just a wonderful guy to work with,” wrote Tylo on Twitter. While Nick and Taylor shared a meaningful romance, their union couldn’t withstand the fact that she unknowingly carried and gave birth to Brooke’s baby. The couple eventually split. “Love him,” Tylo added of Wagner.
Also tops on Tylo’s list are Kabir Bedi (ex-Prince Omar), Rick Hearst (ex-Whip), and Ian Buchanan (ex-James). Tylo worked twice with Bedi. The first was in 1994 when Taylor was presumed dead in a plane crash. In reality, she had been kidnapped by Prince Omar of Morocco. He fell in love with Taylor and initially kept her from returning to her loved ones.
Taylor was killed seemingly for real in 2002 after she’d been shot by Sheila (Kimberlin Brown). An open casket all but served to seal her fate. When the show decided to resurrect the character, the writers wrote that Taylor had been kidnapped by — who else — Prince Omar once again. The prince arranged for a dummy in Taylor’s image to be placed in her coffin.
Whip and Taylor fell for one another, but their union couldn’t survive her lingering feelings for Ridge (then, Ronn Moss; now, Thorsten Kaye). James was Taylor’s mentor. The two made love after being trapped following an earthquake that destroyed the Forrester cabin in Big Bear. The couple’s tryst stayed secret for years.
Tylo’s favorite short-term guest co-stars are Tristan Rogers, whose character, Hunter Jones, solved the mystery of Grant’s (Charles Grant) shooting, and Jon Hensley, whose character, Dr. Meade, helped Katie (Heather Tom) and Steffy (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) through medical crises.
Taylor’s been absent despite her son Thomas (Matthew Atkinson) becoming a master manipulator. Will she return to BB? Stay tuned to find out! The Bold and the Beautiful airs weekdays on CBS. Check local listings for air times.
