So many of you have posted comments upon learning the news that Kim Matula has wrapped at The Bold and the Beautiful after four years as the central young heroine of the series, Hope Logan.  Matula, who finished taping last month, decided to depart the series to pursue other opportunities within her acting career.

Now comes word via this week’s Soap Opera Digest (on newsstands now) that Kim’s final airdate will be next Friday on the December 12th episode of B&B.   Next week, be on the lookout for emotional and heartbreaking scenes in story for long suffering star-crossed lovers, Liam (Scott Clifton) and Hope.

As to the big question of whether Hope will be recast, the series EP and head writer Brad Bell had this to share with SOD on Matula’s exit: “Hope Logan is a critical and central character to the show. Hope will continue to be on the show. We’re losing Kim Matula, who is a brilliant actress, and I am hoping, at some point,  she will return to the role – but the role will continue.”

So how do you think Hope will exit the canvas?  Are you looking forward to Matula’s final scenes? Are you glad there may be a recast coming as teased by Bell?  Comment below!

I have a feeling Quinn is going to cause her to miscarry.

Sad to see Kim go, especially since I felt like she’d be a long-time permanent fixture in the series. I do wish her the best, and hope Hope returns in 2015.

I Love Kim As Hope it will be hard to fill her role as she owns it . I wish her well in her adventure. But truly wish that she returns soon. Her and Liam deserve their fairy tail wedding its the way it was ment to be.Will not watch as I once did.

I will miss Kim Matula, as Hope Logan, I wish her luck in the future. She is a very pretty young lady and a wonderful actress.

Best case scenario: Kim misses the show and returns! Nobody will be the same in this role, and her chemistry with Scott Clifton and the beautiful work they did together can’t be replaced. But, if she decides to leave The Bold and The Beautiful behind for good, I am happy that Hope will be recast. It needs to be an outstanding bit of casting…get it right Mr. Bell!

Wow… that is certainly different from what he originally said a few weeks ago when he said the role will not be recast… I am glad though… hoping the nuHope is more likeable…but that’s up to the writers of course….

Lots of great talent out there to choose from.

She’s ok, has gotten a lot better, but there are lots of talented actresses who will make that part sizzle. If that was me though I would never leave a gig like that.

Very sad that Kim is leaving the show. I don’t watch The Bold and The Beautiful that much anymore. Maybe twice a week. The show has the same repeated storylines. I miss Stefanie so much. Susan Flannery is very much missed. I love watching Days, Gh and Y&R. Very happy that Melanie is back at Days.

Another miscarriage would be sad. So would a mysterious disappearance. I pray there is a close to logical turn of events. She goes to be with Brooke? Heck, I were Hope I’d run from LA and her near incestuous family and relationships and never look back.

Well after watching today’s episode it’s apparent that Hope will lose her spawn. She will go away to regroup and come back as anther actress. Hope to god it is someone pretty and talented and has fab chemistry with Scitt. Heard a rumor that it’s Julie. Hope not as I am not a fan. Oh well, that’s soap land for you!

Julie who?

Julie Berman, she played LuLu Spenser on GH,, Another soap star who went in search of greener pastures. Not too many of them actually make it in the movie world. They usually go back to the soaps.

Kim is a good actress, not one of the best, but she is talented. She and KKL look like they could really be mother and daughter, and her chemistry with Liam is great. Too bad their story was milked to death by Brad Bell over the last 4 years, to the point where entire weeks were devoted to this mess. Seriously, the story ran its course years ago, and I know there isn’t a single person that still cares who Hope winds up with, except of course for every other character on the show, since everyone talks about her love… Read more »

Yes thats the big rumor right now natalie, Julie Marie Berman might be the new Hope Logan. I hope that happens, Julie is a wonderful actress. Another suggestion I have is Martha Madison ex Bell Black on Days Of Our Lives. She is a terrific actress too.

I really hope not but I heard that rumor. Can’t stand her and even though she worked with Scott Clifton on GH, I didn’t care for their chemistry.

I’m hearing that Julie may be cast, but nothing is in stone. I don’t think I’d enjoy her as Hope, especially since I hated her Lulu.

I watched Fridays episode Quinn will nit leave Hope alone at all, but I do agree with you Quinn will cause her to miscary because Hope fell down the steps. It wouldn’t of happen if Quinn didn’t show up at Brooks house .

I will miss Kim Matula as Hope…she grew as an actress despite having terrible material to work with. This storyline with Liam was contrived and had every OLD plot cliché that has been used before on this show and others. I also feel that by February the latest BBell will have the part of Hope recast to continue to drag out this mess with Liam/Ivy/Wyatt for a few more years. Best Wishes to Kim Matula she gave it a good shot!

Darrell
Guest

As far as a recast is concerned I think BBell will go with an unknown. That is usually his casting strategy.

Hopefully the show will go in a new direction with a re-cast. I’m so sick of Hope’s nauseating relationship with Liam and her equally nauseating relationship with Wyatt. Kim is a pretty girl, and I’m sure she’s very nice, but not terribly talented. I doubt she’ll go too far in primetime if that’s what she’s aiming for. I’m thinking that the Fuller Family just may be written off in the near future. They’ve pretty much been written into a corner. Too bad because I love Quinn and Deacon and Quinn is the most interesting character on B&B right now.

Sorry to see Kim go, but think a great replacement would be Alex’s Havins who played Babe Chandler on All My Children–she could really rock the part!

Tivette

That’s Alexa Havens.

I so agree that Alexa Havins would be the best actress to play Hope!

Personally I thought Hope had more chemistry with Wyatt. I love the fact Wyatt got a restraining order for Hope. Liam just needs to move on. Liam and Hope just don’t mesh. Liam seems too old for her. They way he is fawning all over Hope is so disrespectful to ivy. Hope does have a husband.

Dmitri
Guest

I agree. Liam & Ivy just have better chemistry. He ruined his relationship with Hope too many times in the past by choosing Steffy over her.

I used to love “Hott” together, but now she comes across as a fickle tramp. I hope Wyatt divorces her and can get together with Steffy when she comes back.

You know Hope will lose her baby after Liem touched her belly. I wish the actress good luck. I read Steffy was coming back and I was sick of her chasing after Hope’s men. So I hope she doesn’t come back doing the same Boring part! And I hope Ivy and Liem make it together because Hope turned out to be just like her mother sexing through two brothers going again ALL her correct beliefs. If they continue with these terrible scripts, I won’t be watching any more.

I think Kim Matula is a good actress, and I wish her the best. That said, I’m not sad to see her go. The character of Hope has been completely trashed these past few months. She married Wyatt out of love, yet is acting like she still wants Liam, and vice versa, even though Liam is now with Ivy. It’s weird, because the majority of fans do NOT want “Lope” together anymore–it got old, played out, and boring. I know Steffy is coming back, and I’m really hoping that she can get together with Wyatt. I like Liam with Ivy;… Read more »

I too have had enough of the Hope,Liam, Wyatt Show. Sick and tired of the the same storyline over and over again. Get some new material. Don’t even bother to recast the role of Hope for fear of subjecting us to more of the moronic trio.

I think LIndsey Fonseca would be a good choice as the new Hope

I think Lindsey Frost might be a little to old to be believable as Brooke and Deacons daughter She was a Betsy years ago on As The World Turns

I think he is talking about Lyndsey Fonseca who is 27 and played the first teenage Colleen Carlton on Young and The Restless she was absolutely wonderful. Her chemistry with Thad Luckinbill/JT was off the charts they were that good.

I agree with you. Although, the Liam and Hopd story, in my opinion, was hindering the other wonderful talent on the show, I enjoyed Kim in the role and wish her luck in her future endeavers. Maybe now tbey can get back to the Rick and Caroline story. I am dying to see more of Maya and Czroline’s catfights. I am wondering if Maya is going go be the next one to crack. She csn share a psdded cell with Quinn

Ann Marie

I am hoping now the show will start to move forward in putting some of the dangling storylines together. I am waiting to see how the situation with Rick and Caroline will turn out, as well as Katie and Ridge I am hoping that with the return of Steffie, however brief, could also mean the return of Taylor. There is plenty of talented actors on this show that I feel are getting pushed aside to be outshadowed by what I jokingly refer to as the Hope and Liam show

So sad to see Kim exit as Hope, its not going to be the same seeing someone else fill her role. Please say she will be turning some time in the future, otherwise I just don’t see the point in watching the show. I only switched the TV on to watch her and Liam………by the way, that baby should be Liam’s and I really hope it turns out to be as there’s still time to spice things up in that way and make a lot of fans happy. They so deserve that break, she doesn’t fit with Wyatt. PLEASE RETURN… Read more »
