Heather Tom of The Bold and the Beautiful may not be exercising her acting chops while the show is on hiatus due to the quarantine crisis, however, she has been able to pursue one of her other creative passions — directing!

Heather Tom: Director and Comedienne

As previously reported, Tom put together a funny short film on Instagram showing the challenge that many of us are feeling as we try to get into a pair of jeans after staying so close to home for a while.

She also offered us an amusing take on having to color her hair and cover those greys at home since hair salons are closed in California and so many other parts of the country.

The five-time Emmy-winning actress recently shared with TV Insider what went into her directing her jeans-themed comedy in which Tom attempts to get into a pair of jeans. “My sister-in-law sent me this list of things that happen during quarantine,” Tom shares. “One was make sure you can try your jeans on as yoga pants can be deceiving. I have way too much time on my hands.”

There’s more to come, too! “I’ve got two or three more I’m getting done this week,” Tom teases. “There will be content coming your way. I can’t take myself too seriously. I’m not going to have the Halo light in my house and look all glossy. I so wish I were that person, but I’m not. I’m embracing my truth.”

Earlier this year, Heather Tom directed an episode of Dynasty. “It’s been amazing,” she says of stepping behind the lens on some nighttime shows. “It’s fun and it’s also daunting. The Dynasty musical episode [set in the ’40s] that I directed was right up my alley,” enthuses Tom. “Because it was a fantasy episode, we could shoot it a little off-kilter. The cast was so down to really lean into it. They were fantastic. I’m supposed to go back and shoot Good Trouble. We’ll see once everyone’s all back up and running.”

Don’t miss Tom’s appearances in both classic episodes of BB and also The Young and the Restless, the show on which she played Victoria Newman from 1991 to 1997, and again from 1997 to 2003. You can also see her jeans and hair videos below. The Bold and the Beautiful airs weekdays on CBS. Check local listings for air times.
