There are many families on The Bold and the Beautiful, but most would agree that the most notable clan on the show is the Forrester family! Many members of the design family have come and gone over the course of the show’s 33 years. There’s always the chance that one or two of them could return at any moment.
The Bold and the Beautiful Polling
Soap Hub asked BB fans which Forrester they’d like to see return to the show. Read on to see how your choice fared!
The Prodigal Son
Brooke (Katherine Kelly Lang) and Eric’s (John McCook) son, Rick, scored the majority of your votes, almost half with 45%. The character, as an adult, has been played by three actors (Jacob Young, Justin Torkildsen, and Kyle Lowder), any of whom could be tapped to reprise the role. A shark in the boardroom and a romantic, Rick brings a great deal to the canvas. Forrester International can’t survive without him!
Thorne In Our Side
Thorne, Eric, and the late Stephanie’s (Susan Flannery) firstborn came in second with 42% of your vote. Four different actors have played the part of Thorne including Clayton Norcross, Jeff Tracta, and Ingo Rademacher (Jax, General Hospital), but Winsor Harmon played the role the longest. The character split town following his split from wife Katie (Heather Tom). If his heart has mended, it could be time for Thorne to rejoin the fold.
Two different actresses have played Felicia — Colleen Dion originated the role in 1990; Lesli Kay has played the part on and off since 2005, enacting a powerful cancer storyline. Her father Eric might need an ally to make sure that he doesn’t rush from one relationship with Quinn (Rena Sofer) and into another with Shauna (Denise Richards). Felicia scored nearly 7% of your vote.
When BB commenced, the tension between Stephanie and her daughter Kristen (Teri Ann Linn; Tracy Melchior) was pretty thick; it was easy to see why Kristen had been living out of town for a while. Now that her son, Zende (Delon de Metz), is back in town, it’d be logical for Kristen, who received almost 6% of your vote, to visit Los Angeles and see how he’s doing and check in on her dad, too.
