Who Would You Cast To Play Karen Spencer on The Bold and the Beautiful?

New out of Soap Opera Digest is  that The Bold and the Beautiful is seeking a possible recast for the role of Karen Spencer played by Joanna Johnson.

In story, the character of Karen had come out to her brother, Bill  (Don Diamont) and revealed that she has a wife Dani played by Crystal Chappell.  The two moms raised together their daughter, Caroline (Linsey Godfrey), who over the last many months has certainly developed more of an edge from her once good-girl image.

Looks like the unavailability of Johnson to continue in the role has served for the impetus to put out a casting notice for the role of Karen now listed as “recurring/possible contract”.  Joanna Johnson currently serves as executive producer on the ABC Family hit series, The Fosters.

So the question is, who would you cast in the role of Karen Spencer, who might be familiar to daytime audiences?  Or, would you not recast and just wait till Joanna is available again? Comment below!

I’m hoping this means getting to see more of Crystal Chappell as Dani.

Jessica Leccia, who played Natalia to Crystal Chappell’s Olivia on Guiding Light!

Wait for Joanna….unless we can get Jessica Leccia….:)

So many good candidates… Kelly Sullivan? Teri Conn? Sarah Brown (no one remembers her Agnes character anyway and she could hold her own with Chappell)?

But the bigger question… Will B&B keep and use the characters to their fullest? This serial seems to waste its talent and not integrate characters or plots well. Best way for screen time is to bed Brooke or to get involved with Liam and Hope. Otherwise, you are with Thorne in the Forrester Creations depths. And just where is Taylor?

Taylor is long gone, thank God. I never liked Hunter Tylo and I was giddy when she left the show.

Yeah…Kelly S.

Terri Conn is too young to play Caroline’s mom, don’t you think?

Iakovos
Iakovos

Good and fair point. Teri Conn does skew young but I liked her so much on ATWT and miss her. But on B&B I recall Lesley-Anne Down and Jack Wagner’s age difference when they were on the show, as well as the woman who played Beth Logan when the character died compared to Katherine Kelly Lange as Brooke. Couldn’t have been more than 7-10 years between them.

I read other ideas here and see Martha Byrne and Kelly Menighan Hensley’s names. Doable. I do not see Noelle Beck in this role although I like her very well.

If they are willing to go with a different look, Jessica Leccia would be the way to go. She looks like she could be Bill’s sister, and hopefully we’d see more of Crystal.

Noelle beck!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ooh I like Noelle Beck as a suggestion.

Forget about noelle beck. cast kelly sullivan ex connie gh. She is a wonderful actress.

Noelle beck would be the best.

Here are just a few suggestions that I would love to see
Catherne Hickland, Kelly Sullivan ,Kassie DePivia, or Florencia Lorenzo.

Catherine Hickland. Good one!

Kelly Menighan Hensley. And give Jon more air time while they’re at it.

Martha Byrne!!

kelly sullivan would be really good in the role. she is a very good actress and sexy too.

Karen Spencer should be recast with Lori Laughlin playing the role of the original character, who was straight. The lesbian revisionism is a turn-off.

Johnny

Very much so. She could have been a viable love interest for Thorne. She still could. If she lived most of he life straight, it would make more sense.

Joel

Kimberlin Brown! If GH can cast actors in multiple roles so can B&B. Sheila hasn’t appeared on B&B since 2003 and they’ve apparently forgotten about her anyway.

JustSaying

Tough call. I want her to remain Sheila.

Johnny

I wouldn’t cast anyone in the part. The character is completely unnecessary on the canvas of this show.

Mark Y

How can you say that without knowing what her story will be?

Scott (ATWT Fan)

Either bring Joanna back, or recast with Martha Byrne. She wrote for the show before, and would have great chemistry with the whole cast!

Gina Togoni from OTLT/GL. Unless GL is resurrected. But I think she’ll do great as Karen and can hold her own against Dollar Bill.

Beth Ehlers or Gina Tognoni.

Michelle Stafford! The Bells seem to really like her.

They don’t need karen spencer. Have the lesbian couple break up off screen and then have dani be paired w/ a lesbian who’s a racial minority actress. days will & what’s his name. atwt’s luke and noah and the doctor that got crushed by a truck. b&b’s dani and karen. gl’s lesbian couple. y&r’s adam. oltl’s kish. amc’s bianca and lena and maggie and reese. All day soap opera lgbt chars have been white. Racially diverse l.a. should have a racial minority lesbian char on b&b. Generally speaking there needs to be more racial minority actors regardless of their orientation. That’s especially true for l.a. based b&b!

Signy Coleman or Krista Tesreau

Signy is a great choice.

Nahhh. I want Signy back as Hope’s long lost cousin.

As much as I like Jessica Leccia and Crystal Chappell together, I think Jessica’s too young for this particular role Joanna Johnson is a few years older than Crystal, and although I don’t know the age difference between Karen and Danielle, I kind of like the idea that Karen is a bit older..
