10. Matthew Atkinson Gets Real About Thomas
Although Thomas has been on his best behavior as of late, it wasn’t that long ago when he ran Emma off the road and caused her fatal accident. In the latest episode of Bold Live, portrayer Matthew Atkinson fielded a question about what exactly happened there — and whether his character should face justice.
“In that situation, they definitely never made it clear whether Thomas pushed her off the cliff or if she drove off the cliff because Thomas was chasing her and then she just lost control of her car,” Atkinson replied. “But at the same time, you’re right and it would be interesting, especially in the future, if that came back on Thomas to bite him in the butt.”
9. Not Even Taylor Wants Taylor To Take Ridge Back
B&B viewers are on the fence about Ridge running back to Taylor at break-neck speed, particularly because she always gets burnt by her ex. As it turns out, even portrayer Krista Allen isn’t crazy about Taylor’s chances of finally getting her dream man. “If I get a script and I see things that personally, I would not like my friend Taylor doing, I need to break that down and say, ‘How do I play this?'” Allen told Soaps.com. “That’s the challenge for me, because I just want Taylor to be strong.” And what would Allen’s idea of strength be for her character? “I want her to kick the waffler to the curb,” Allen exclaimed.
8. B&B Alum Lands Prime Time Gig
Soaps vet William deVry shared that he’s landed a role on NCIS: Los Angeles. “Well lookie here,” deVry wrote on Twitter. “Official NCIS: LA press release. I read the script once. Then read it four more times. Very good episode.” The B&B alum’s prime time gig will air on March 20th.
7. Two More Years!
As reported here, CBS has renewed B&B for another two years, which will carry the beloved soap opera into the 2023-24 season. This news comes as B&B prepares to celebrate their 35th anniversary with a standalone episode, slated for March 24th.

6. A Guest-Star Appearance
The subject of B&B‘s standalone episode will be Brooke Logan as she reflects on her “five true loves”. In an interview with ET, actress Katherine Kelly Lang ruminated on her character’s most memorable marriages and even name-dropped five, on-screen ex-hubbies. Could any of them make a guest-star appearance in her special episode?
5. Nick And Thorne Return!
You bet! Both Jack Wagner (who played Nick Marone) and Winsor Harmon (who played Thorne Forrester) will return to the B&B canvas for Brooke’s standalone episode, according to Soap Opera Network. These two returning stars will feature alongside John McCook (Eric), Thorsten Kaye (Ridge) and Don Diamont (Bill) on Thursday, March 24th. Fans really won’t want to miss this one!
4. Is Bridget Set To Return?
Rumor has it that Ashley Jones, who sporadically appears as Bridget Forrester, was recently spotted on the B&B set. Candid photos caught the actress posing with Matthew Atkinson (Thomas Forrester) during the taping of the soaps’ 35th anniversary episode. Was she merely on set to lend her support, or could Bridget return at a time when her birth parents are on the verge of reuniting? We’ll have to keep tuning in to find out!
3. A Man Of Many Talents
Sean Kanan doesn’t only play the partially reformed bad boy Deacon Sharpe on B&B; he’s also an accomplished martial artist. And now, he’s an author! Kanan has been promoting his self-help book, Way of the Cobra, and offering positive affirmations as a life coach on his Instagram. So, if anyone can turn Deacon’s life around right now, it’s… him!

2. The Waiting Game
Daytime television moves at a notoriously fast clip. However, like all of us, sometimes our favorite soap opera actors have to wait around. John McCook recently shared as much on Instagram, taking a photo from his seat in Eric’s office as he waited for co-star Katherine Kelly Lang (who’s visible on-screen).

1. Quinn Shrugs It Off
Speaking of Eric, where’s his lovely wife, Quinn? An intrepid fan asked portrayer Rena Sofer on Instagram recently and got a pretty blunt answer: a shrugging emoticon! When another viewer commented that they miss seeing Sofer on B&B, she replied, “Thank you. I miss being there.” Let’s get this straight: Paris is hooking up with Carter, while Brooke’s marriage is falling apart… and Quinn doesn’t have a stake in these storylines?!
