B&B’s Annika Noelle Talks On: Thomas’ Machinations for Hope, Deacon’s Secret & Rival Steffy Forrester

Photo: JPI

After a successful fashion show this week for “Hope for the Future”, Hope (Annika Noelle) and Thomas (Matthew Atkinson) are taking in all the accolades and celebrating, while Thomas uses the opportunity to get closer to Hope.

To make things even more tempting for Hope, her husband, Liam (Scott Clifton) took off before the fashion show after witnessing a hug between Thomas and Hope. It appears Liam is on to Thomas’ machinations where it concerns his wife, and Thomas’ biological son, Douglas (Henry Joseph Samiri), who had been living with Hope and Liam, until recently when Thomas fought for his rights to be with his son.

So, what does B&B’s heroine Annika Noelle think about where the story can go from here? Michael Fairman TV caught up recently with Annika on the set of The Bold and the Beautiful where she weighed-in on myriad of plot points.

What did she think of Thomas’ fantasy of kissing Hope, and did she always know who would be revealed to be the CPS (Child Protective Services) caller? As viewers know, that voice-changing call was made to sound like Brooke (Katherine Kelly Lang), but set-up by Thomas, that ultimately blew up her marriage to Ridge (Thorsten Kaye).  Meanwhile, Hope’s father, Deacon (Sean Kanan) is secretly hiding an alive and well, Shelia Carter (Kimberlin Brown).  What will Hope do if she finds out Sheila is alive and her father’s part in keeping it quiet? Check out what Annika shared about this and more below.

On a recent episode of B&B, fans were shocked when it appeared that after trying on one of Thomas’ new designs for the new ‘Hope for the Future’ line, Hope kisses Thomas.  When you saw that in the script, did you actually think Hope lip-locked with him?

ANNIKA: Matt and I both had a panic attack going, “Wait! Is this real or a fantasy?” We weren’t sure till we read the script for the next episode, and then we were like “Oh, ok.”  It opened with Thomas saying to himself something along the line of  “You’ve got to stop fantasizing about Hope!’

Many viewers thought it would be a cool twist if it was revealed that Hope actually was fantasizing about making out with Thomas!

ANNIKA: Probably, in an alternate universe it would have been! I like things like the Hope mannequin, where I get to step out of what Hope would normally do, and get to play her in a different element, and with a different spice, a different fire.  So, for me, that was a fun scene for me as an actor to play.  Now, is it something that Hope would have done in that moment? No. But, was it fun to play that possibility and how it would ramp up to get to that point? Absolutely.

Photo: JPI

My bet is Liam and Brooke hook-up and Hope and Thomas get to together.  What do you think?

ANNIKA:  I have actually heard a lot of fans theories about Liam and Brooke! I hope my on-screen mom doesn’t make the same mistake, twice in her lifetime.  I would hope she has learned her lesson in some way.

Sheila is hiding out with Deacon, and he has not let Hope or anyone else know that Sheila is alive and a danger to all.  Do you want Hope to find out what’s going on?

ANNIKA: Yes. I really want Hope to stumble on Sheila and her dad together, because she has no idea this is going on. Meanwhile, Hope has been fighting tooth and nail for her dad to be a part of her life.  So, I actually am really hoping she falls upon that secret and seeing how she deals with the reality vs. what she thought.

Photo: JPI

Did you think from the beginning that Thomas would be the one to call Child Protective Services (CPS) and make it look like it was Brooke?

ANNIKA: When that was coming up, everyone in the cast was not exactly sure of who it would turn out to be. A lot of us were going, Was it Taylor (Krista Allen)? Was it Hope? Was it Thomas … or could it really be Brooke? Then, went it was revealed to be Thomas, it un-did the two years of trying to redeem him.  Hope has really been trying to believe the best in him. When she finds out it’s going to be a major letdown. I think it will have consequences for the custody situation with Douglas, but I don’t know. I am going to have to see how it plays out.

Photo: JPI

What did you think when Hope suggested to Deacon to go over to Brooke’s to try to make a play for her, now that Ridge left Brooke for Taylor? It seemed a little over the top for Hope!

ANNIKA: It definitely came out of nowhere! So, how I had to play it was Hope acknowledging how ridiculous the situation is, but then going to Deacon like “Shoot your shot… Give it the old college try.”  Steffy (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) and Thomas have been working so hard to get Taylor and Ridge back together, she thought maybe to consider another perspective.

Photo: JPI

Would you like to Hope to have an on-screen catfight with Steffy?

ANNIKA:  I honestly, haven’t gotten to partake in a full-on catfight like Kim Matula (ex-Hope) and Jacqui did with the chocolate fountain. My dream scenario is a food fight. I have never been in one and I would one day like to get to have that.

Steffy has really been working overtime to ensure her entire family is back together and hasn’t been the nicest of late.  What does Hope think of how Steffy has been acting?

Photo: JPI

ANNIKA: Steffy has not been not so subtle with the scenario of getting the Forresters back together as one family, but Hope has to play nice with Steffy, because she is still her boss.

What do you think will happen? Will Thomas and Hope have a fling? Will Liam wind up with Brooke? Should Hope and Steffy have a catfight? What did you think of this week’s ‘Hope for the Future’ fashion show? Share your thoughts and theories via the comment section below.  First, check out some clips from during and after the fashion show.

Your right that’s why I want steffy to stay on top as she deserves I would love to see her n Liam together again they just had so much to do together hope is board character

Ruby

Mine to. She needs to wake up and see Thomas for what he is. Or Liam takes Beth into custody. Hope has abandoned them. That is what I like to see. As well Liam that’s his other daughter from steff because of the danger in steffy house.

Patricia Tibbetts

I hope that Hope will come to her sences and see Thomas for what he is doing to her and Liam Thomas is evil and should be locked up: I also thought the writers are going to bring Thomas wife back as if he just took Douglas and made up the lie that she had died because he wanted Hope so bad

I am so sick ofthe Logan Girls they have taken over Brooke has slept with every Man On the show beit her Daughter’s Boyfriend’s / Husbands Her Sister Katy Husband and they always pertray her to be so innocent Always butting in and always putting Stephy and Thomas down at every turn and Ridge goes right alone with her The Forester Men are too weak to the Logans who think they are above everyone else.and Bill is always taking Brooke side was just trying to get Katy to take him back then what happen after Ridge left he is back… Read more »

I’m not sure how the “Logan girls” have taken over. It seems to me that the foresters are doing fine. The show is about both families and always was from the first episode — asking with the Spencers.

M Robinson

Yeah and brook is going to end up sleeping with her other daughter husband. And lets see how much hope going to side with mommy then.

Hope has blinders on
Ridge is a pitiful excuse for a man. He’s a coward

At least when Thomas is on it is interesting, wish he could be happy once in a while and be the hero, I am sure tired oh Brook either crying or trying to intervene in everyone else’s life. And the writers are wrecking Liems character, He is either nanby pamby or mean as heck in not supporting Hope on her big day,

Lois
Guest

I think the writers should get Shelia out before Deacon is caught with her. I would like to see Deacon stay on the show as a good guy, whether he is with Brooke or not. I hope Thomas and Hope get together and raise the kids together. Liam is such a wimp. I think the fact that Thomas called cps should stay under wraps, no need to expose him. Brooke should get get with Justin, and Carter with katie. Liam ends up with nobody.

Thomas and Hope. There is so much heat between them. Liam has always been boring and never has anything to say except to say, Thomas is dangerous. Writers: Hope is human, not an angel .

Jennifer
Guest
Jennifer

I want Hope to end up with Thomas also. For once I would love to see Hope as the cheater, rather than Steffy and Liam. Also I find it quite hypocritical of Liam to complain about all the time Thomas and Hope spend together when compared to him running off to be with Steffy when Finn “died”, or back when he was mad at Hope before. I would love for a Thomas/Hope/Liam who’s your daddy scenario, with Thomas ultimately being the father.

Gee

Yes

Delores

Yes She Is. She Getting Better Clothing And Her Hair Is Looking Great. Liam Wouldn’t Be Saying Anything If Steffy Was Available

Iakovos

The show is off the rails. No one is ever held accountable for his actions. I am a peer of Ridge, Brooke, and Deacon. I’d like to think I have evolved. Why can’t these characters? Brooke and Liam? For God’s sake!

Brook to old to do this again

Velma Mcdonald

Please don’t let them write this story out for Liam and Brooke.. Brooke has change let Liam be the one to find out what Thomas did to Brooke and bring more people on the Bold and the Beautiful soap opera please

Charlene Venable

I think hope is attracted to Thomas, the way she looks at him and when he touches her I feel she enjoys it. Also he is really treating Liam wrong. She she understand how he feels, I understand that she wants to make Douglas happy but that’s where it should end. Liam doesn’t deserve the way she is treating him, when he was helping Steffy out when Finn died by being over there she didn’t like it at all and he has a daughter with her.

Joyce Wilson

I think they should hold off on Thomas and cps service and I think they need to reveal that the baby steffy gas is actually Liam baby hope should be with Thomas because they will do will with Douglas steffy isa beauty I got yet to see her n Liam bring more fun like they use to that always my favorite couple please don’t tell on Thomas right now

FLliving2021

No to Steffy’s baby being Liam’s. No they don’t belong together. Steffy is free and clear of her mental and emotional abuser.

Nana
Guest
Nana

Thomas and Hope hook up is long over due. Let them get together. Then for some reason have Douglas see or hear something. So he turns to Liam for help

FLliving2021
Guest
FLliving2021

Why have Douglas see or overhear something and turn to Liam? If this needs to happen, then let Douglas turn to Steffy or Ridge.

Shawn
Guest
Shawn

Because the writers seem to have forgotten that just a short time ago, Douglas adored Liam and only recently began his i miss daddy Spiel. The, I want mommy and daddy together, line is just copied from Steffy and Thomas. It’s stupid.

Pattie

No Liam and Brooke shouldn’t be together and no Thomas and hope either .Sheila needs to go again without decon getting introuble

Deb O.

This show is getting cringey- sick of Taylor/Ridge – Brooke needs to discover Thomas’s CPS trickery – Hope needs to wake up to Thomas and his creepiness – tired of Steffy’s bitchiness!! Can hardly watch anymore!!

Becky
Guest
Becky

I agree! And how many grown adults with children try to push their parents back together every hour of every day!? Steffy looks like a spoiled child that must have her way and grind it into others faces! Why don’t she take care of her own man and make him happy instead of worrying about her grown parents! And Ridge please! A pine cone hits him and he just magically appears to know that his daughter and ex are in Aspen…Really?!!! Man whore! Sick of him not knowing how to act right on his own!! Or Liam for that matter!

Pammy t
Guest
Pammy t

Ohhhh I so agree … I am so tired of steffy always holding people to standards she clearly can’t do herself… doesn’t anyone remember we didn’t know who her lil girl belonged to …Liam or Liams dad, BILL ! … She’s acting like a child with this devious behavior getting her parents together and interfering in her dads marriage to Brook… and Taylor acts mentally challenged.. aggghhh I’ve had enough …

Robin
Guest

If this writer hook up Brooke and Liam I’m done with this show. Hope is to week on this show. Who spends the nights away from their spouse to stay with a child and another man. Then takes his child too. It’s not surrealism.

I am with you there!

Sandra

I beleave Taylor and Brook need to send Ridge kicking rocks..Stupid grown women acting that way..Hope is really acting like a single women,where’s her baby does she only care about Douglas,Thomas what a unstable person..I think they all need to zip their pants,keep their dresses down and try something different..

Can’t stand the way this story is going with Hope and Thomas, Brooke and Ridge.Is he really that dumb.

Miss Alice
Guest
Miss Alice

I’m glad Ridge and Taylor are together, not because l want them together but because I was sick of Steffy and Thomas acting like little kids. I want my mommy and daddy back together. I mean every scene was the same. These are grown people. Ridge…he don’t want Deacon around Brook but he’s constantly with Taylor. What was wrong with Thomas cutting an apple with a knife????

Beverly Slade
Guest

I want Hope with Thomas. I want Liam with Brooke and Taylor with Ridge and Thomas be forgiven by Hope if it is found out he is behind the COS CALL

Djennie B
Guest
Djennie B

No , Thomas doesn’t deserve forgiveness from Hope , may be Hope forget about her baby beth. Thomas made her believe her baby died. Hope is the one who supposed to stay with no man.Liam deserve better from Hope…. She forget if she a married woman.

FLliving2021
Guest

Yes to Brooke and Liam hooking up. Yes to Hope and Thomas having an affair. Let them go play pickleball. No to Steffy and Hope catfight. The fashions looked like they belonged in the Intimates Line.

Nancye

Thomas is a creep, find ur own girlfriend, Hope should wake up to herself, how did Thomas get away with running Amy off the road, Liam is hot & plays a great part, yum, Steffy & Taylor get a life & stop interfering in Brook & Ridge’s life, just get on with the show & stop dragging it out.

RC
Guest
RC

New Writers Please. So so sick of Brooke, Ridge and Taylor saga. Same with Hope, Thomas, Steffy and Liam. Bring in a character to take Finn from Steffy since she think it’s so ok for Ridge to abandon his marriage to Brooke. She and Thomas act so childish and privileged. And yes, if they put Brooke with Liam, that will be my exit to the show. It’s getting really boring. Too much sleeping around and nobody stays together.

Miss Alice

YES NEW WRITER’S PLEASE!!! Now Douglas want his mommy and daddy together although it sound better with him than grown butt Steffy and Thomas.

So true! The same old stuff! They all slept together on this show! I want Brooke n Bill together tho…HOT couple! Ridge n Taylor are SO boring!Bring in New people! Love Katie n Carter! Hope deserves Thomas…shes so dull but wish Thomas could be a good guy and move on! If any switches I could see Liam/Steff and Finn/Hope

Magie
Guest
Magie

I want Thomas to be exposed for his “app” crap in front of the family….especially Ridge AND Taylor. Let him run back to Brooke & let her FINALLY get to tell him that he forsook her every time for a lie……sleeping with Deacon…..getting drunk on her own and now the lie about her reporting Thomas. I hope she gets with Bill….. a REAL MAN!! Hope needs to make it right it right with Liam and let another beautiful woman come into Thomas’s life (for Douglas sake)

Jill

Yes-!!! Sad she has nothing to do with her daughter n Liam! Brill would be the BEST couple ever! That’s Destiny! Leave Ridge to the curb

MeMe

I want Hope & Thomas to be together. I guess Liam has forgotten that it was Thomas that told the truth for him and Bill to get out of jail, yet when he was locked up he (Liam) told Thomas to be there for Hope. I blame Brooke hypocritical, nasty attitude for Thomas being led to call CPS. He wasn’t bothering her, but yet once again the writers make Brooke to be innocent and right like she’s never done her share in manipulation. I’m sick of her, been sick of her… Let Ridge and Taylor stay together. When the truth… Read more »

Shawn
Guest

I’m going to disagree about Thomas and Brooke because I think that’s victim blaming. So, Brooke “made” Thomas set her up because she was mean to him? And she had nothing to fear from him because he’s never threatened her before? Let Taylor and ridge deal with Thomas’s misdeeds like parents should — you mean like every other time they have quietly covered it up and enabled it? Like trying to kill Rick, lying about having sex with Brooke to get Stephanie’s share of the company (and break up Brooke and Ridge), raping Carolyn, Beth secret, gaslighting Douglas, Emma, Hope… Read more »

I would like to see Thomas and Hope get together. Liam and Brooke should have a fling and get caught since history seems to repeat itself on this show. Brooke is always so self righteous. It would be nice to see her get knocked off her high horse. It’s time to have Thomas behave normally and not go off the deep end. I hope it’s not revealed that he made the CPS call. Let him win for a change. Please let the Ridge and Brooke destiny story end. There’s been enough of that.

No I don’t want Hope & Thomas to have a Fling it is disgusting!! So is the thought of Brooke and Liam why does the writers want to mess with innocents of interacting with family members having relationships together affairs brothers & Sisters/ son in-laws & mother in law’s ruining relationship with a mother and daughter also a beautiful marriage!! They have waited so long to make to be ruined by a crazy obsession like THOMAS!!! What about Beth has everyone forgotten about her Family

Liam and Brooke, NO!! Thomas and Hope, NO!!
I believe Liam will soon reveal Thomas phone app thanks to Douglas. As for Steffy, her bubble is about to BURST for her Forrester, no shame to their game HELLO. I LOVE watching the show I’ve been a fan since day one but seriously, come on Writers STOP dragging out. I could write better stories

I am very disappointed in the way Hope is being portrayed. It is sickening. Liam is also being cast as a weak man. He should not let Beth attend sleepovers with Douglas. He is her father. If Hope wants to go let her go. But not his daughter.

Violet Lemm
Guest

Don’t know how long you’ve watched the show but Liam has always been weak or wishy-washy as most of us call him because of his inability to decide between Steffy and Hope. He has no guts to put it nicely and let’s everyone tell him what to do.

Why doesn’t Hope point that out, when Steffi plays goodie two shoes on and throws shade on her Mother!?? It wouldn’t make hope bad for saying so, it would make her Normal!

I totally agree. Thomas killed Emma and there were no consequences for his actions. Steffy is no saint and yet she tries to be. If this is the best the writers can do, they should pair everyone together with whoever, let them make nice, and end the soap. The storyline is so far fetched as it is trending now.

It would be great for Liam and Hope to finally shows some backbone and fight! ✔️Would love for Hope to face-off with the (very arrogant) Steffy and bring up BOTH paternity tests when Steffy slept with both father Bill and son Liam. Steffy initially stole Liam from Hope. ✔️How is Steffy so sanctimonious against Brooke when Steffy did the same thing, really worse than Brooke?

I am sick of Steffy and Thomas medaling in Brooke and Ridges marriage. I don’t like Taylor either. None of them add to the show. Ridge should be with Brooke, Liam with Hope. The same story line with the Forresters is getting old.

Liam with his mother in law is gross! Liam and Hope have worked through their parents’ love triangles.

Please move towards upgrading B&B standards for relationships. Think about relationships in the real world .

I think Liam ought not to behave as he has in the past or as Ridge typically behaves. . Making a beeline to another woman and/or assuming the worst. Have a little faith in Hope. . Otherwise it’s as old and boring storyline as Brooke/Ridge/Taylor. I check spoilers nowadays to see what’s up with Sheila. The rest of it is boring as hell

Hope needs to STOP being so trusting n naive when it comes to Thomas. Same storyline with Thomas drooling over Hope is enough, come on writers can’t you come up with new stories, new love interests. Is Brooke a goddess that these men can’t get over her. The whole Steffy n Thomas acting like LITTLE BRATS whinging n plotting to get their parents together was very irritating. Also making Taylor look like a pathetic needy love lost woman was sickening, HELLO WRITERS this is 2022 women are strong and can find love with a different man, not the same person… Read more »

I hear so many people say not to let Thomas get caught for the CPS recording, and it blows my mind. This is your hero? He has never shown accountability, and his parents are enablers who let him get away with everything. His collusion with Sheila to keep the secret about Brooke’s champagne switcheroo (to help get mommy and daddy back together) led to Steffy and Finn getting shot. Mommy and daddy covered it up. He hid the fact that Beth was alive, gaslighted and threatened Douglas, and chased Emma off the road to protect his secret, and daddy covered… Read more »

Annika’s character is somewhat boring, BUT, I would REALLY love to see Brooke taken down! I know, in the moment, she has lost Ridge, but she’s so damn righteous and smug, I would love it if Ridge stuck with his on again off again “Doc”! Also, everyone seems to forget that Hope threw Thomas into a vat of “acid”! Brooke conveniently forgets the crimes of the Logans! Not so perfect…

I don’t think Brook should be with Lim. It’s time that she walked away from her past. Jump in out of bed with men whether their family members or not. She better than that. Let Brook find someone “Treated her like a woman should be taken care of”.

Two-time Daytime Emmy winner, Camryn Grimes (Mariah, The Young and the Restless) has been involved in a very special passion project in more ways than one!  Now, everyone will be able can see it, and hear it, when Grimes voices the role of Mrs. Claus opposite her real-life fiancé and voiceover star, Brock Powell as Santa in Mickey Saves Christmas.

The new stop-motion holiday special premieres Sunday, November 27th (7:00-7:30 p.m. EST) on ABC, Disney Channel, Disney Junior and Disney XD, and Monday, November 28 on Disney+ and Hulu.  It features Disney icons: Mickey, Minnie and the gang, who are sent to the North Pole on a quest to save Christmas and find the true meaning of the holiday.

Camryn and Brock Powell became engaged earlier this year on January 7th, which also happened to be Camryn’s 32nd birthday. How the two met all comes back to the world of voiceover and Disney, as you will learn.

Michael Fairman TV chatted with the real-life lovebirds to preview Mickey Saves Christmas, how they wound up voicing the important voices of Christmas, Santa and Mrs. Claus, and just what Brock thinks of Camryn’s Genoa City alter-ego Mariah being married to Tessa (Cait Fairbanks), and more.  Is Brock #TeamTeriah? Check out what they shared with us below.

The two of you were actually introduced by Bill Farmer, the voice of Goofy! How did that happen?

BROCK:  So, Bill Farmer is my mentor, and through him, that was the first time I actually met Camryn.

CAMRYN: I knew Bill growing up, and in 2020 when I wanted to get into voiceovers, I reached out to him and that’s how this all started and I guess, the rest is history.

Now you are voicing Santa and Mrs. Claus in Mickey Save Christmas. How did it come about that you both landed parts on the project?

BROCK: I got to play the role of Santa in Mickey and Minnie Wish Upon a Christmas, which was the first time I got to voice Santa for Disney, and now I’m returning to the role this time. Camryn received the audition randomly for Ms. Claus on the day we were getting engaged, and it was perfect timing because I had to get her out of the house so I could set up the proposal here.  So, it really was a Christmas miracle because I was sweating!

CAMRYN:  We were cast separately. The production team had no idea that Brock and I were a couple. When I went in to record, they were like, “Here’s the voice of Santa for you to record to, and I was like, “Yeah, I know… that’s my fiancé!”  They were like, “What??” (Laughs)

Did the engagement go off without a hitch?

BROCK:  Yes, so after the audition process, Camryn returned home. I proposed, and there was a whole Disney/Pixar theme going on in the backyard. It was a really special day. To have her say, “Yes”, and also to have this crazy opportunity for her to audition for the role of Mrs. Claus happening at the same time … and then weeks later finding out she booked the role, it was all amazing.  We were now going to be working on this Christmas special together.  I think anytime you get to voice an iconic character, it’s special.  However, if you’d told me that I would get to return to the role I love, with the person I love playing opposite me … I think I’m done.  I just don’t know how you can ever top it!

Camryn, what did it mean to you to be in this film as Mrs. Claus, because fans saw this post of yours with a photo of you outside the Anaheim Convention Center where Disney’s D23 convention was happening.  It made everyone speculate  just what you were working on, which you shared was a lifelong dream.

CAMRYN:  Yes!  Y&R and CBS is my home, but I’ve always wanted to do something with Disney.  My family raised me on all things Disney and all things Christmas.  They were huge into the holiday, and so this kind of just checks every box.  It’s not only Disney, it’s Christmas, it’s stop-motion animation, and it’s Mrs. Claus.  I think my family was more excited for me to book this then anything I’ve ever done. I think there were tears! So sentimentally, this project really meant a lot to me.

Camryn, did Brock coach you on doing voiceover work, or give you any tips?

CAMRYN:  I mean, I live with my voiceover coach. (Laughs) It’s amazing!

BROCK:  You know, I do coach for voiceovers and Camryn is my star pupil now.  She’s a talented actress, obviously. The biggest misconception is that, while it starts with the voice, Camryn, as well as most of the amazing voice actors I know, they have access to this childhood imagination which I think makes their performances possible. So, while you’re watching Mickey Saves Christmas, even though we recorded everything separately, what you’re looking for is that energy and every character connecting. You’re inventing the circumstances, you’re inventing your scene partner, where we have to close our eyes and embody a character we may, or may not, have a reference for. I think watching Camryn and hearing Camryn’s work on this, and a couple of other projects she’s worked on, I’m just so impressed at how coming from daytime television where there is a very stringent set routine and at the level that she excels at there, to then come into my world and then just kill it behind the microphone. She was able to let all of that go and have the bravery to try something new. I think a lot of people are going to love what Camryn has done here.  I’m most proud of her to be willing to look silly which is what is required in voiceover.

CAMRYN:  That’s true, and that’s probably the most fun thing about it.

Now, what can you tease us that happens in the story of Mickey Saves Christmas?

CAMRYN: It’s kind of built into the title a little bit, but I think what you’re going to get out of this is a deep sense of community and coming together to fix a problem and being able to lend a helping hand.  I feel, it’s just a really lovely film about chosen family.

BROCK:  It’s about family, it’s about friends, it’s about putting a lot of pressure on the holidays be perfect.  I think everyone involved in this special from the animators to the music team, everything in it helped make this a love letter to the holidays. The film really just talks about that Christmas is who you spend it with, and not necessarily how it turns out. I think it’s a really positive reminder that the most important part about Christmas is being with the ones we love. These are characters that Camryn and I love, not just the ones we voiced. To be with these actors, to be with these characters. it is just is going to be so special with everyone watching on November 27. It’s going to be the first tine for all us watching it together,

Now Brock, do you watch Camryn on The Young and the Restless?

BROCK: Yes, and I will say sometimes when Camryn is at work, our puppy does sit and watch mommy on TV, too!

Is Brock, #TeamTeriah on Y&R, as well?

CAMRYN: Yes, Brock is all about #TeamTeriah. It was actually really beautiful kind of getting engaged around the same time, Mariah and Tessa did on the show.

In another post of yours on social media, I saw that you had picked a spot for your wedding to Brock.   

CAMRYN: Yes. We don’t actually have a set date (we have three options), but we did pick a location.  So, we will be figuring that all out very soon.

Check out a clip from ‘Mickey Saves Christmas’ featuring Camryn as Mrs. Clause and Brock as Santa below.  Then let us know, will you be watching the special? What did you think of Camryn getting to work on this project and opposite the love-of-her-life, Brock Powell? Share your thoughts in the comment section.

Patrick Duffy and Linda Purl Talk On Their Guest Star Turn on The Bold and the Beautiful, Bobby Ewing and ‘Dallas’, and Finding Love with Each Other

On today’s episode of The Bold and the Beautiful, arriving on to the scene during a crucial moment for Brooke (Katherine Kelley Lang) is none other than real-live lovebirds, Patrick Duffy and Linda Purl.

Duffy’s appearance marks the first time he had been back on the CBS daytime drama in the role of  Stephen Logan since 2011.  He had left his role on the soap to join the cast of TNT’s Dallas reboot to reprise his signature TV role of Bobby Ewing.

Now 11 years later, Patrick returns, but he brings with him, Linda Purl, heralded for so many memorable TV movies of the week earlier in her career.  In story, Stephen comes t0 Los Angeles with his new girlfriend, Lucy (Purl), only to stumble on drama with the Logan sisters, Brooke, Katie (Heather Tom) and Donna (Jennifer Gareis).  The two also appear on next Monday’s November 28th episode.

For Purl, this marks her second foray into the world of the soaps.  Just recently, she appeared on General Hospital as Peyton, who definitely provided angst and drama for Carly (Laura Wright) when Carly was stuck in Jacksonville.  Fans loved Purl’s performance on the ABC daytime drama series. Don’t be too surprised if Linda winds up with a Daytime Emmy nomination next year for her work.

Michael Fairman caught up with Patrick and Linda for a virtual interview now on You Tube’s Michael Fairman Channel.

In addition to their visit to B&B, Patrick opens up about his disappointment on the cancellation of TNT’s reboot of ‘Dallas’, plus being part of one of the most iconic moments in TV history, when in the closing moments of the original Dallas’ ninth season, Bobby was seen lathering up in the shower, when he had been killed-off on the show a year prior.  It was later revealed that the whole previous season was a dream!

In addition, Patrick and Linda discuss how their friendship turned into a romantic relationship and partnership some 20 years after they originally met, and how they even have gone into business together with ‘Duffy’s Dough’, (www.DuffysDough.com) just in time for the holidays.
