Monday on The Bold and the Beautiful, viewers in the U.S. will see the very first episode of the CBS Daytime drama series which dates back to 1987.

In it, you meet the one and only Brooke Logan played by Katherine Kelly Lang.  It’s a role which she has played now for more than 33 years.

In addition, one of the sentimental favorites for this year Lead Actress in a Drama Series Daytime Emmy has to be Lang.  This is her third acting nomination, and she previously won Emmy gold as one of the producers of  Venice the Series in the Digital Drama category.

Now in Australia, Stellar Magazine has a feature on Katherine and her career, in which a portion of it was revealed on the Daily Telegraph website. 

About her very first day on the set back in 1987, Katherine shared: “It was magical. Everyone was so excited to be there and the scenes were incredible.”

As to all the popular and not so popular twists and turns that Brooke has gone through or endured over more than three decades, Lang said she wouldn’t have had it any other way, in fact, playing the character of Brooke has impacted her in such a profound way: “She taught me to follow my heart, never give up and stay true to myself.”

Katherine also revealed:  “I don’t have plans to ever leave The Bold And The Beautiful.” 

So, are you rooting for Katherine to take home Emmy gold on June 26th?  Will you be watching her first episode as Brooke on tomorrow’s B&B encore presentation? Comment below.

I’m not sure that statement is a ringing endorsement, considering that Brooke Logan is one of the most morally bankrupt characters on daytime. Marrying through an entire family of men, sleeping with one daughter’s husband and another daughter’s boyfriend, seducing her sister’s husband multiple times. What a joke. – KKL saying what she said would be like Maurice Benard saying Sonny Corinthos has taught him how to be a good father and family man. Meanwhile one of his wives died in a car bomb and all of his other wives have been either kidnapped or shot at. Not to mention,… Read more »

B&B’s Annika Noelle Shares Her Heartache on Pregnancy Loss

In a very well-written and touching essay written by The Bold and the Beautiful’s Annika Noelle (Hope), herself, the actress shares with the readers details of two miscarriages that she had not publicly revealed until this time.

In her story for Glamour entitled, “Losing a Child in the Limelight”, Noelle shares the heartache and pain of losing a child while filming the demands of a soap opera, and especially Hope’s storyline which for months featured so much emotion and so many tears after the baby loss storyline on-air she was the vehicle in which to tell the tale.

However in real life, Noelle was going through something as well.  Annika reveals how she and her fiancé found out she was pregnant, and then 10 weeks later she lost the baby.  When they tried again, she lost the baby at 8 weeks.

In an excerpt, Annika expressed about keeping her pain private while working on the soap: “Fans and news articles speculated whether I was pregnant or just gained weight during quarantine. And once again the storyline called for ceaseless tears when I felt like I had no more to give. I guess looking back at it now, I was scared to jinx anything. I didn’t want people to know and have things not work out. And yet I wish I had because I would have given anything to have the understanding and support of the cast and crew. I felt so alone. The secret was isolating, yet the shame was debilitating. I felt like I had failed at something that should be easy. But as time marched on, I was surprised by a new feeling bubbling underneath the sorrow: an ancestral rage toward the burden of womanhood. And as I slowly began to open up about my loss to a select few, I was shocked by how many people had experienced it as well.”

In the end, Annika shares: “Anyone who follows me on social media can tell you I’m a deeply private person. But if there is one thing I’ve gained from my loss, it is a voice I’m no longer afraid to use.”

Make sure to read Annika’s moving article in full, then let us know in the comment section what you thought of it.
