After four years as Rick Forrester on The Bold and the Beautiful, Kyle Lowder has been let-go by the series and has parted ways with the Brad Bell soap opera.  It seems lack of story, which has clearly been issue for awhile now is the instigator for the casting move. 

Soap Opera Digest spoke with Lowder who revealed,  “Brad Bell ( executive producer/head writer) called this morning and said he felt terrible that they haven’t been able to generate enough story for the character. He felt it was in everybody’s best interest that we go in different directions. From my standpoint, it’s an amicable situation. Obviously, it’s their choice, but at the same time, the story has been slow for over a year-and-a-half and like any professional in any line of work would do, you prepare yourself for the next step. So, it wasn’t a surprise that it was going to happen, but it was handled in the most respectful way and I have huge respect for Brad. I had a great four years there and I thank him for the opportunity. And now, onto the next thing.”

On-Air On-Soaps wishes Kyle all the best, and looks forward to following his next acting endeavors!

First Bridget is relegated to “recurring” and now this. I hate when these shows dismiss legacy characters in favor of characters the viewers dont have anything invested in. I would have preferred to see Amber and Rick ultimately reunite instead of having her revert to the old Amber. The cast is too large as it is, the show should be expanded to an hour or they need deep cast cuts. I havent watched in weeks because I find the storylines to be assinine: Thomas all of a sudden falling in love with Brooke, Taylor’s histrionics, Amber’s absurd pregnancy and now… Read more »

I hope DAYS brings him back. He and Ari Zuker (real life wife) sizzle with chemistry. I enjoy the current Brady- maybe he could come back as Eric Brady.

In my opinion. Kyle is more suited to days of our lives. I so wish tptb, would bring him back and pair him up with Nadia. I adore their on screen chemistry. Nadia always looked like a pro opp Kyle, they had a beautiful love story. He complimented her really well, and as did Nadia to Kyle.

They’re forcing trashy Amber onto the younger set w/ this stupid pregnancy. Trashbag Amber battling classy Hope for boring Liam is so dumb bec Amber and Rick’s child is actually older than Hope! Thus, the writers wouldn’t want to reunite Rick w/ Amber or even address their relationship since it crimps the younger set’s storylines. Conroy is 1 of B&B’s few good actors while Matula’s great acting overshadows Frantz. It would be terrible if they sacrificed golden haired, rich, virginal, teenage heroine Hope to make skanky Amber the protagonist yet again. They did that w/ golden haired, rich, virginal, teenage… Read more »

Lowder is recurring according to a message board. So I guess that means Rick is going to be like Thorne. All the char of Thorne does is talk abt other characters’ storylines or talk abt boring FC corporate crap whenever they use him during throwaway sequences. The writers seriously do not have a clue w/ what to do w/ majority of the B&B characters.

Is on air on soaps going to be reporting abt the racist, hate mail that Stephanie Wang has received? She portrays Madison. She’s the only Asian actress on B&B. I don’t think she’s even recurring! Soap opera network’s message board has a topic abt it. B&B already has the worst track record w/ racial diversity despite revolving around LA fashion. Yet its only Asian actress is getting racist, hate mail. Terrible.

Lori Loughlin To Make Holiday Movie For Great American Family

Lori Loughlin (Ex-EON and Full House) will be making a holiday movie for Great American Family. Look for production to start later this year.

The announcement of the upcoming Christas pic follows on the heels of Loughlin’s Fall Into Winter which dropped on January 28th on GAF.

The movie marked Lori’s first romantic comedy screen appearance since serving time in 2020 for her part in the college admissions scandal. She returned to acting after her prison time, and after being let go by the Hallmark Channel in When Hope Calls which was a spinoff of When Calls the Heart.

Bill Abbott, President and CEO of Great American Media had previously shared: “Lori is a genre-defining star that I have had the honor to call a close friend and collaborator for more than 15 years. We have a shared vision for creating meaningful and memorable movies that resonate with our passionate fans, and I look forward to welcoming her back to Great American Family to anchor our 2023 winter programming slate.”

Marcus Coloma On His GH Exit: “I Don’t Know Why That Decision Was Made, But I Don’t Feel Any ill Will and I Didn’t Feel I Got Fired”

This week, GH fans saw Adam Huss returning to the ABC soap opera as Nikolas Cassadine to finish out the rest of the scenes originally intended to be played by Marcus Coloma who ended his three-year run on the show a tad early.

As has been previously reported, Coloma came down with Covid-19 as his final tape days neared, and a decision was made for him to not return to finish off his last run of episodes.

With all the rumors and stances taken by everyone involved, Coloma was the special guest on this week’s episode of the That’s Awesome Podcast hosted by Steve Burton and Bradford Anderson and discussed his departure from the long-running daytime drama series.

Marcus expressed that when he took the role on GH, he was excited to be in that kind of environment (working on a soap opera), and only signed on for three years.  However, as time went by it became more difficult to reconcile leaving when his contract was up, sharing: “You fall in love with the crew and everybody along with it. So, two and a half years in, this decision that was so clear in the beginning is getting complicated.”

The actor added that while, “I knew the end was coming, it wasn’t like GH was saying, ‘Hey, Marcus, we want you to stay.’  There was no negotiation … and all I can say to that is I don’t know why that decision was made, but I don’t feel any ill will and I didn’t feel like I got fired. It just felt like … there was maybe an understanding that I was going to be there for three years. The big surprise is how much it hurt. Even though I knew I was going to leave.”

In the end, Coloma reflected that this may have concluded as it should, adding, “I really do have some big goals and those goals would have never been realized if I would have stayed. That’s not to take anything away from GH because I admire everything about it.”

Watch the episode of That’s Awesome featuring Coloma below.

Then weigh-in, what do you think of Marcus’ thoughts on his exit as GH’s Nikolas Cassadine? Share your thoughts in the comment section.
