B&B's Katherine Kelly Lang Weighs-In On Thorsten Kaye's Ridge Forrester!

Courtesy/CBS

Courtesy/CBS

Katherine Kelly Lang (Brooke) has a host of new circumstances to get to play with over at The Bold and the Beautiful! Chief among them is that the CBS soap brought back the character of Ridge Forrester in the form of Thorsten Kaye. As fans know, for 25 years Katherine played opposite Ronn Moss in the role.   Secondly,  B&B head honcho Brad Bell is mixing up the love lives of not only Brooke and Ridge, but Katie (Heather Tom) and Bill (Don Diamont) as well! And as previewed this coming week by CBS Daytime, Katie and Ridge admit their love for each other!  Will Brooke be the odd girl out?  Or, will she land back in the arms of Dollar Bill Spencer?

In a new interview out from Soap Opera Uncensored, Katherine shares her thoughts on how she thinks Thorsten is doing in the role of Ridge, and what she thinks Brooke’s reaction would be if Katie and Ridge hit the sheets! Here are a few excerpts below.

Katherine on if she thinks Thorsten as Ridge is a hit with the audience:  “I think it’s a hit.  He’s bringing something completely different. Different energies, different things for all of us to work off of. He’s kind of turned into the catalyst in the Forrester world, with work and relationships. It’s kind of interesting. It’s nice to have something new to work with. And, of course, Thorsten is amazing. He’s such a great actor. I like the rough, rugged feel he has going. He’s great. “

Katherine on what she thinks Brooke’s reaction to Katie and Ridge sleeping together potentially would be: “Oh, I think Brooke will know she had it coming! She’ll probably have to accept it without much complaining.”

So, what do you think of Thorsten as Ridge Forrester?  Do you hope Katie sleeps with Ridge and Brooke gets some payback for sleeping with Bill?  Let us know!

Should have replaced him with another walking pretty boy, lacking acting talent. This Ridge just isn’t right, too old looking & scruffy.

You actually wanted someone who can’t act taking over the role? Seriously? Thorsten Kaye looks a lot younger than Ronn Moss and he can act, very well. I think he’s done great in the role so far.

Mama

I like Thorsten, too.

And he’s 100x better looking than Ronn Moss.

My only complaint is when his Irish accent comes out. 🙂

Jimmy…yes…thank you!!!!! AGREED!!!!! And, as far as I’m concerned, Thorsten Kaye is a WAY BETTER actor than Ronn Moss. Yep.

Susan

Thorsten Kaye just turned 48. Ronn Moss turns 62 on 3/4. He was only 7 years younger than John McCook (Eric). Thorsten is a lot younger than Ronn. He can also really act. He’s taking Ridge in a whole new direction and I for one hope that is the direction of Katie. He’s also a great actor.

Michelle

Well put Susan – think Thorsten is doing a great job – love this Ridge and am enjoying them pairing him up with Katie.

Timothy Adams would have been a better recast.

Anyone else notice that Bill Bell choose rather phallic sounding names for his make characters? Ridge? Thorn? At least there is no one named Dick.

Harry

Jimmy is right. First, Thorston Kaye not pretty, Jo-Jo? Rubbish! He’s the Irish Spring of soap hunks–manly yes, but women like him too. To enhance his rugged good looks, he’s an incredibly talented and charismatic actor capable of emoting nuances and conflict with a mere expression. Suddenly, Ridge is not just a walking life size Ken doll, and we get why women are constantly fighting over him. I love that suddenly Ridge has an Irish accent and that his clothes are on the shabby and un pretentious side. In a sea swell of plastic one dimension phonies, Ridge suddenly stands out as his own man. Jo Jo, you couldn’t be more wrong.

Harry
Harry

I just looked it up–Thorston Kaye is 48 while Ron Moss is 61! The latter party has had so much plastic surgery he’s starting to look like Bruce Jenner.
Also, I need to correct myself–Kaye’s accent is British, not Irish as I previously stated. as he was brought up in England. I must have confused him with his character Patrick from OLTL.
Also, he is a Shakespearean trained actor–daytime is lucky to have him.

Michael (not Fairman)

I think you hit on one key thing, for sure, Harry: it’s much easier to understand why women would fight over this version of Ridge.

Johnny

Too old?? He is 12 years younger than Ronn Moss!! I can accept this recast because they are writing Ridge as a completely different character. But I still maintain…and I was the first one to say it publicly…way before Ronn ever even thought of leaving…that Grant Aleksander would have been ideal! Same height, same lean lanky physique, same bone structure. The difference is that Grant is a phenomenal, layered, nuanced actor. It could have been awesome. And if KKL ever left…which is doubtful…Beth Chamberlin could replace her. It would have been brilliant to see two really outstanding actors play, and make sense of these roles.

I said the SAME thing!!! Grant Alezsander would have been a PERFECT Ridge!!!!!!!!!

Thorsten as Ridge has been amazing, I couldn’t have asked for a better casting. He’s changed the role and him completely different, and I’m loving it. The pairing with him and Katie is making so much sense right now. He’s making Ridge more mature and loose, rather than an up-tight Forrester.

Jmarie

the pairing of katie and ridge makes NO sense..if you follow the show’s history…its ridiculous and I fast forward..boring already…

Thorsten Kaye is exceptional. Such class combined with rugged sexuality. He and K seem like a perfect fit. Not that it’s right…but if it happens, yeah I’d say go for it. I know I would !

I love Thorsten as Ridge, he brings something new young and fresh to the part. He brings new energy. Like Y&R is about Victor and Jack and there lives and family and company. This show will be about Bill and Ridge and there lives and family and company and I love it.

Bold

Thorsten Kaye is a marvellous actor and has taken the character of Ridge to a totally new level!!! He is the reason why I tuned on again! He and the actress who plays Quinn have brought so much fresh air to the show 🙂 bring back Felicia or send her to Y&R!

Jimmy
Jimmy

Yes, I love Rena Sofer as Quinn, and I like Darin Brooks (Wyatt) too. But Thorsten Kaye has been great as Ridge, I like the character SO much more than I did when Ronn Moss played him. I couldn’t stand Ronn’s acting, but TK is very talented and bring a different spin on the character which works really well, especially with Katie. I hope they end up together and let Brooke be alone for a LONG time.

Susan
Susan

I agree with everything you said. I think Rena, Darin, and Thorsten are great additions to the cast.

Jmarie

why should Brooke Logan be alone for a long time? after all, she is the Center of the show..no, she will take this craziness with her sister and widge, but she will always have a man by her side..She is the sexy siren..enough with the Brooke has to pay!!!..she’s paid especially, if they do kringe..which sorry, I am not a fan of..all it is to me is katie with a new character..not ridge

Sharon

I think Thorsten Kaye is beyond awesome! I’m a long-time fan of his from his Zach Slater days on AMC & Patrick & Ian Thornhart before him, so I’m a bit biased, but I absolutely love the guy! His voice is what first drew me in & continues to work it’s magic! I actually gave up watching B-B aft 20 + yrs to watch TK on AMC, so I’m back watching again because of TK! I’d follow him anywhere on any show!

Jenny C.

I absolutely adore Thorsten Kaye’s portrayal of Ridge Forrester. The character got a much needed personality upgrade when it was recast. We are very lucky to have the gorgeous and very talented Kaye in the role! Also loving Ridge & Katie together!

TK is doing great! He isnt Ronn Moss, quit expecting him to be.

Jimmy

I don’t understand why people expect him or want him to be in the first place. Just my opinion, but Ronn was a much worse actor. TK is doing great as Ridge.

Katie gave Bill to Brooke she threw her marriage away & cried Wolf too many times. Katie deserves to be alone for all she done Bill & Brooke weren’t even considering anything between them until Katie push them together so what did she expect? Paring Ridge with Katie is a big mistake she only bring Ridge down plus the pairing is boring together. Bring back Bridge. Or just kill off Ridge once & for all. Why did Mr. Bell bring Ridge back? If he wasn’t going to do Bridge again?

Pav
Pav

Couldn’t disagree more. TK and HT have mad chemistry, and are bringing a fresh perspective to some fairly dismal writing. I hope Bridge are done, because they’re tired and empty and over. I adore TK, I think he’s fabulous as Ridge, he’s the reason I started in again with B&B. Bell and co are probably clapping their hands in delight at the success of the recast-and the way the story is heading. He should be-any show who gets TK is damn lucky.

Max

I only started watching this show when Ridge was gone. I like the new Ridge but I love Brook and Bill. They should be together.

I ❤️ TK!! Watched him on OLTL, AMC, SMASH, and was thrilled when he came to B and B to take the role of Ridge!! This is a Great re cast and a Ridge and Katie pairing seems like a wonderful idea to me…. Very adorable, cute, and sexy! This is just what B and B needs!!

Mija

OMG, yes, yes, he is fantastic !!! TK has rescued the sinking boat BB !!!!

Jmarie

sinking boat? r u kidding me? when was B&B sinking? LMAO

Mija

Yes, sinking, because CBS has the contract with Bell only for one year extended – other soaps for several years. I speak as big BB fan ; but for me, was the year 2013 – quite boring!! Sorry, my opinion!!
Nice day!!!

Love the new ridge and Heather Tom is great with him they are beautiful together better I hope Brooke gets Bill back , Kelly and Heather are great together.
I hope they could work things out I miss the love of sisters they had together.

I have watched B&B since the beginning, but this is the first time I have seen TK in a role. The jury is still out on the actor in this role IMHO. I think TK should have been brought on as a new character, since it is obvious he was brought on for HTom’s Katie and not KKL’s Brooke. OTOH … with a new character they couldn’t have ended Bridge (Brooke/Ridge) and made it all about Katie getting her angst ridden revenge on Brooke, right? Whatever. I never want to see Bridge (Brooke/Ridge) resurrected again, enough already. Besides, the new super couple of B&B is Brill (Brooke and Bill) and now they can be together guilt free! Can’t wait.

Melissa Sommer

I hope Katie and Ridge go all the way so Brooke will go straight back to Bill her true love.

I like tk as ridge. I would love it if he and Katie got together. then brooke can get back with bill where she belongs.

Beth

TK is doing his usual good job but I wish he had been cast as a new character. So far there isn’t much about nuRidge that reminds me of the Ridge I’ve watched for years. That’s more about the writing than it is about TK, can’t fault him for that. I’m not on board the Katie/Ridge train, but it is going to happen. I’m not convinced that Bradley Bell will write a story for any couple where they’re allowed to be happy for very long, but if Brooke can move on and stop begging Ridge to love her, it would be progress. Sounds like KKL is more than ok with Ridge and Katie being paired together. Hopefully Brooke and Bill will reunite soon.

Lynn K.

I don’t say this often: Brad Bell was right. He was hoping Thorsten
Kaye would win over Ridge fans with his acting chops (a not-so-subtle
dig at the previous actor who played the role) but the recast wouldn’t
have been successful without the writing to support it. I didn’t
think Ridge has another dimension after all these years but Bell’s
writing and Kaye’s acting have proven me wrong. The product is
so much more enjoyable when good writing is married to good
acting, IMO. Kudos to Bell for finding his new muse.

B&B Fan
B&B Fan

Thorsten Kaye took over a role that was played by Ronn for 25 years. I see him as Ridge with all the history & baggage that goes with it. I don’t get how some can say just because he has a new face they can ignore all the history that comes with Ridge & Brooke & Bridge to support Ridge & Katie. Ridge will always find his way back to Brooke. And Katie will be left alone & heart broken yet again. But I won’t feel sorry for her since she knows the history of Bridge. Katie herself even said she didn’t want to be with a man who was thinking of Brooke. Maybe Katie sees the new face & thinks he is a new man. Like most of the Kridge fans are doing. Good Luck with Kridge because your need it.

richard

Thank you!! Well said!! Ridge and Brooke are ENDGAME so enjoy Kridge while u can bc it won’t last!!! Katie will lose, just like Taylor did!!!!

I personally liked Katie with Bill. There was a lot of comedy in this pairing, because she kept him in line and he responded to her like a naughty little boy who knew he’d done wrong. I loved it. Really sorry Bell broke them up, because Brooke and Bill for me are just flat. The same as Ridge and Katie are together. Very flat mushy mills and boon stuff. Not half as interesting. Ridge and Brooke are far more compelling together and have too much history to throw away.

TK is doing a “Fantastic” job a nu Ridge! Never liked Ronn Moss in the role. RM lacks acting talent!

Mary SF

I like the actor, but I personally never see Ridge when he is on screen. In my mind he is a whole different character whose name happens to be Ridge. I am not complaining because I like him and I like pairing him with Katie, yet I think it would have worked just as well if they brought TK on as his own character and not a recast Ridge. In my heart, RM is Ridge and as always will be– but that is just me— it has got nothing to do with TK, he’s great, but he ain’t Ridge.

k/kay
k/kay

Totally agree he is not Ridge you notice he has had no scenes with his children. But then again there was never a Bill Spencer Jr./Don Diamont the only Bill Spencer was Jim Storm who had one daughter Caroline his pride and joy she died of cancer. The actress decided to come back zoom the long lost twin routine Karen Spencer. Then we do a 180 with her character and make her a long suffering closet lesbian with a daughter. Brad Bell was going to make ground breaking storyline on that one 14 episodes later Karen was gone.

A few weeks ago I was having lunch with some girlfriends we were sitting at the bar Bold & The Beautiful was on the flat screen one of them had not watched in months did not know who TK was. He was reading poetry and when she found out he was the nu-Ridge she asked if the character had recently undergone a lobotomy we all exploded into laughter.

I love and adore Ronn Moss and he is and always will be original Ridge! I dont watch anymore.

I hadn’t watched a soap opera since the late 90s when I was a teenagers and used to spend summers with my grandma. On one of the many snow days we’ve had this year, I saw B&B out of curiosity and was pleasantly surprised to see the new Ridge. He can act and brings new depth and dimension to the role. I watch it online now and largely focus on his scenes. It’s nice to see two good soap actors like TK and Heather Tom portray a well-acted, romantic story. It’s still a soap and the story lines are ridiculous, but TK and Heather Tom do a terrific job.

Ronn Moss’ Ridge should have been retired. Brad Bell insulted him and his work for 25 years. Shame on him.

Ronn Moss’s Ridge is retired. This is Thorsten Kaye’s Ridge.

Best recast B&B did by placing Thorsten Kaye in as Ridge. Amazing Actor and the chemistry of TK and HT is smoking hot. I am looking forward to seeing these two together.

Cannot stand him. He looks sloppy & not groomed. I didn’t like Ron Moss that well, but he was clean & well dressed as you would expect for Beverly Hills & fashion

I love it! Ridge feel more well rounded and smart now. The casting is a win-win for the show. In terms of character development and in terms of acting. I know a lot of people only focus on triagles/ couples etc but Thorsten Kaye has chemistry with everyone. He and John McCook is on foer in their scenes as him and Jacob Young. I want more scenes with the Forresters. And the Ridge/Bill rivalry got more meat now.Love it.

Arlene Moore

I feel bad for Brooke Ridge always hurts her but I have to say if Ronn was still here this would not happen but this ridge is so different. Still out on if I like him or not. Just feel bad how everyone picks on Brooke. Katie is no saint. Don’t know if I like them together or not. I think brooke will go after them in one way or another and she will be right to do so. After everything they said about her look what they did to her

Liz

I love TK, but this isn’t Ridge. He’s a great addition to the cast, but should have been a new character, not a recast, and definitely not of Ridge. The Katie/new guy pairing could have made sense, but I can’t get behind Katie and Ridge, no matter whose face he has. History doesn’t go away just because the actor does. That said, I do adore TK and wish him all the best.

Donna

I love TK as an actor, I stopped watching AMC yrs ago but I saw him on Smash & I loved that show..I think he is doing a great job as Ridge..The man has so much class & so debonair…I, like some wish he was his own actor & not as Ridge but I still enjoy him so much..Love it when he Is on screen…I almost stopped watching until he came on B&B….

Donna

Sorry, I forgot to say I also love him with Heather Tom who is my favorite actress along with Quinn who makes the show more exciting…So tired of Brooke!!!!

More and more, I think that Thorsten Kaye and Heather Tom are BEYOND MAGICAL together on-screen!!!!! Also, Don Diamont and Rena Sofer…another on-screen couple with AWESOME CHEMISTRY together!!!!! As for, um, Brooke…she needs to be without a man for a while. Brooke is WAY TOO slutty, needy and annoying. And, besides, Katherine Kelly Lang deserves WAY BETTER material on-screen!!!!!!

Zoe

I actually find the opposite, that Katie has managed to make a TK character rather dull. He’s a vibrant actor who deserves better than hand-holding the constant sad, put-upon victim. I’d like to see him go toe to toe with Quinn, someone with spunk and energy he can play off of, and who might put that sparkle back in his eyes. Besides, this whole sister swapping has got to stop. It’s disgusting.

daring sally

I totally agree, I am done with family doing family. The writers has got to come up with something more than this. It’s sad that a team of writers cannot come up with a man other than the husband or cousin or half brother or sister. I am sick of the sickness.

Thorsten Kaye, as the new 10.0 Ridge, has brought B & B into a whole new league ! He and Tom , together , ooze sensuality !!!!!! They are so captivating . B & B has always been seen a Y & R’s “little sister soap”,..it’s a new day on CBS Daytime !! Now, with the chemistry of Tom and Kaye…the sky is the limit !!! It doesn’t get any better than this !!!!!!!!!!!!

Do not like him as Ridge. Need to clean him up he looks messy and dirty. Ridge would never look like that Shave and a shampoo and hair cut would help. Otherwise he is an great actor.

TK is a great actor, and I love the change in Ridge. Just don’t think he and his former sister in-law should be a couple. Besides, he’s going to break her heart when he goes back to Brooke, ’cause Ridge always goes back to Brooke.

Dmitri

I like this guy better as Ridge than Ronn Moss (he can’t act). His chemistry with Katie is undeniable and it is about time Brooke paid for her sins. Whether she is with Bill or single, I could care less. But Kridge and Hott are the new supercouples of the show.

If they put Brooke back with Ridge I will stop watching this soap. That is so old and boring. Katie with Ridge is why I’m still watching, that and the whiny Liam is out of the picture.

I think Brooke will use the legal papers she has kept from Dollar Bill (remember Katie had processed) of her taking over the Spencer Publications? She still has them in her possession and Bill asked for them? Anyone remember that? I do….I think she’ll hold that over Katie….. if you leave Ridge, I’ll give you the legal papers back…. if not, I hand them over to Bill and we take revenge on you!!! Anyone want to comment?

Ann
Ann

I agree Lia, Ridge will go back to Brooke, as he’s done in the past with Taylor…. they needed a new storyline similar to Ridge, Brooke and Taylor, now it’s Ridge, Brooke and Katie!!! not so sure I like this, but heh, I watch it every day, so……. On another note, I want to see Liam tick off Hope and find a love!!!! Hope is such a bitch!!!!

Kathryn McKenzie

Omg I can’t stand the new ridge! And him with Katie is ludicrous. ….bad idea yucky… and gross….

When the new and improved Ridge came back he out grew Brooke. He talked like he had marbles in his mouth. He is better now and he seems likeable with Katie. The writers came cause us love any actor. Liam needs to grow up and Eric needs to hang onto the company if he thinks Ridge can is able to fire people he has no authority to do that. I hope it gets settled a bit. I like Quinn she is nice to look at but creepy. Just because its been this way or that doesn’t mean it can’t change. The writers can make that hsppen. Keep watching

I’ve never really been into watching these ‘soaps’ on tv. My mum just loves B&B. I can’t even call her when it’s on! But I’ve just starting watching it since the new ‘Ridge’ came along and Im hooked! I never liked the old one or his pathetic acting ability. Thorsten Kaye is a Great actor! So refreshing! Can’t take my eyes off him! He is very very handsome too

Just happened to be flipping channels and so tk in b&b my favourite actor love him as an actor very sexy and his voice makes me quicker, so happy I can get to see him again

Thorsten is a terrible hire. The guy has greasy long hair, deer in the headlights eyes/acting, and most of all, you can’t understand him. He’s supposed to play a character the was raised in California. TK’s German/English BS is wrong. TK doesn’t even try to sound ‘Cali’. Ronn Moss ‘over-acted’ all of the time, spreading his legs when he spoke, but he was Ridge. Could someone else play Ridge, yes, but not Kaye. In the world of Soaps being canceled, this is the best Bell could do? This won’t be good for anyone with this in-audible Mr. Mumbles as Ridge. This is ‘Cali’, not Berlin.

Please keep TK he is amazing. I will only watch B&B if he there. He was wonderful in AMC. I’m in love with Zach Slater. Maria RSA

Network Exec, Angelica McDaniel On Y&R’s Staying Power: “We Have This Award-Winning, Ratings-Generating, Money-Making Show, And It Really Adds Value To CBS.”

This week, The Young and the Restless celebrated 30 years as the number-one rated daytime soap opera.  That is a streak of 1,560 weeks in the top spot.

Angelica McDaniel, executive vp daytime programs and syndicated program development at CBS, spoke to the Hollywood Reporter on what has made this remarkable run; attributing it to strong storytelling and a cast that includes several beloved veterans who have been around the entire time.

The executive noted that while other soaps over the years have fallen by the wayside, and even though we are down to only four surviving network soap operas, that Y&R will be around with no end in sight.

McDaniel stated, “We have this award-winning, ratings-generating, money-making show, and it really adds value to CBS. We expect it be a part of our lineup in the future.”

Photo: CBS

She also added, “The Young and the Restless has some of the best actors in the industry — not in soaps, not in daytime, but in television. We have iconic, legacy characters that have been on our show for decades. Melody Thomas Scott will be celebrating her 40th year on the show in February. Peter Bergman just reached his 30th anniversary in November. Eric Braeden started in 1980. We just have an incredible arsenal of actors who are so talented and play these characters so well that you don’t even realize they’re characters. They become people who are part of your life, part of your daily existence.”

As for the continual investment and ways the audience watches the show on various platforms, McDaniel expresed: “The great thing about daytime television is we have loyal, passionate viewers, and they really like to tune in day and date. They want to stick with their stories and see what’s happening today. … Having said that, The Young and the Restless is also one of the top streamed shows on CBS.com. As trends evolve, we are where our viewers are, and we’re making shows readily accessible so they can get their fix and follow their stories.”

So, what do you think about Y&R? Will it remain if and when all other soaps have come to theirconclusion? Do you think it will continue on for years to come, given its position at number #1? Comment below!

Jacob Young Offers Up Thoughts On Rick and Maya’s Split On The Bold and the Beautiful

As fans of CBS Daytime’s The Bold and the Beautiful know, Daytime Emmy-winner Jacob Young (Rick Forrester) has been off the canvas for some time, and the actor had gone on recurring status with the series.

Young has been busy with other projects involving acting roles, his You Tube show, and music career, but certainly is open to a return to the soap opera.

But after the cover of this week’s Soap Opera Digest hit newsstands; which indicates that Rick and Maya have split with the return on-air of Karla Mosley (Maya) (who had been off the show for maternity leave), it clearly looks like the show is moving in a different direction.

Jacob took to Twitter to offer up his feelings on the matter tweeting: “I for one am incredibly sad and disappointed. Rick and Maya have split. (Love that would never die) I loved working with Karla Mosley.  it has been the highlight of my 21 year career in daytime. TRUST ME when I say your opinion matters.”

Since that posting, fans of the couple known as #Raya, have been voicing their thoughts and sharing photos of the on-screen duo.  Young responded to one in particular saying, “Who remembers this? Gosh, I miss Maya.”  In it,the posting read: “This is heartbreaking, Raya was the only example of what true love looks like on that soap!”

Previously, B&B has told the emotional and socially-relevant love story of a transgender woman falling in love with one of the men of the wealthy and renowned Forrester family.

So, what do you think of Jacob’s comments?  Do you want Rick back on the canvas?  What should then happen next for Maya with no Rick?  Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
