The Bold and the Beautiful Star Scott Clifton Shares His Mom’s Reaction to the Latest Twist


Soap stars don’t always watch their own work, but we know that at least one actor’s mom does. Scott Clifton, who plays Liam on The Bold and the Beautiful, recently shared his mom’s reaction to the latest plot twist on the half-hour soap!

The actor’s mom, Faye Snyder, called up her son’s cell phone and left a voicemail message, having seen the scene in which Hope (Annika Noelle) explained that Liam may have seen the Hope mannequin (and not Hope) kissing Thomas. You can listen to the message below. It’s not really so much a message as about 60 seconds of Snyder, a psychologist, chuckling over Liam’s reaction to learning that he mistook the mannequin for the real thing!

“The expression on your face…” laughed Clifton’s mom, letting out a tiny snort as she tried to compose herself. “I, uh… I guess I thought I was filming a dramatic scene, but… thanks? #motherknowsbest,” Clifton posted.

“You have to keep that forever!!!!” tweeted Clifton’s former co-star and ex-on-screen love interest, Adrienne Frantz (Amber). Added BB scribe Michele Val Jean: “OMG this is priceless!”

“That’s great. And good for you for having a mother that’s supports you. And yes I know your not Liam you are doing a job and you are great at it,” tweeted @sheri2271.

“I was actually getting my nails done today and they had it showing. I was watching the other ladies reaction in the nail salon. I think y’all picked up 5 more viewers!” tweeted @Sunshin48428202.

Clifton has responded to Liam’s critics on social media, countering that he’s doing his job by bringing the script to life as Liam responds emotionally to situations in his life (and haven’t we all done that?) “For the record: OF COURSE I want to choke Liam as much as y’all do…But my job is to find a way to motivate and humanize Liam’s choices,” Clifton notes. “I can’t change the story our writers want to tell; I can only try my best to make it evocative and real.”

Clifton has not only fan support, but also encouragement from his co-stars including Forrester family patriarch John McCook (Eric). “NO ONE could play Liam as well and as believably as Scott….I think he could rise to any challenge…” McCook tweeted. Clifton, touched by the support, responded: “I’d throw out all my Emmys if I could put this tweet on my bookshelf instead.”

So, how’s Liam going to handle things now that he knows that Hope wasn’t unfaithful — and he, in fact, was? Stay tuned to find out! The Bold and the Beautiful airs weekdays on CBS. Check local listings for airtimes.
