Last week, fans of The Bold and the Beautiful learned that the very popular Pierson Fodé  has chosen to leave his role as Thomas Forrester.

Pierson had already taped his last episode at the CBS daytime drama series.

Following the news of his departure from the Forrester clan, and his decision to move on to other projects in his burgeoning film and television career, Pierson took to his Instagram to share a heartfelt farewell message to his colleagues and his legions of fans and followers.

Fodé shared: “The decision to say goodbye to The Bold and the Beautiful didn’t come easily but with sleepless nights and countless questions. What a surreal experience to have but ultimately I have to go where my heart leads me. It’s what we all have to do. I can’t be more thankful to have had a boss like Brad Bell who understood and encouraged my decision to explore. Thank you to every hard working soul at @cbsdaytime and bold who let me work beside you. And thank you to all the fans that not only accepted me but championed me through my time on the show. At some point I will likely have to pass the baton of Thomas to another hideous looking guy;) but when the time comes for him to step into my shoes, I hope my performance will haunt him for the rest of his life. Thanks for allowing me into all of your lives and I hope you follow me on my journey to new things. #Dreams

So, what did you think of Pierson’s goodbye message?  Are you sad to see him go, as we are?  

Now that also begs the question, who will end up playing Thomas Forrester in the future? Comment below.

Should his primetime endeavors not pan out, Brian Craig (ex-Morgan, GH) would be brilliant as a recast Thomas.

I’m sorry to see Pierson go.

All I can say is that Pierson is so flipping beautiful and I know he will do well in this medium — entertainment. He did a good job in his character and mostly he seems like a genuinely decent man. Good luck Pierson, now marry me ……. =)

Sad to see him go. Was really starting to like his character! The chemistry between him and Sally was awesome! Good luck with your new endeavors and dreams!

So disappointed he’s leaving. He and “Sally” are perfect together…and he and Steffy actually look like brother and sister. He’s gorgeous; perfect casting both in looks and ability.

I do, however, hope they recast the role. Although, now that he’s out of the picture it looks like they’re possibly going in a Liam/Sally direction? (I really DID like Sally and Thomas…). It was too abruptly halted.

Her son, former Falcon Crest and The Bold and the Beautiful star, Lorenzo Lamas (Ex-Lance and Ex-Hector, respectively), shared the news via his Facebook page: “Mom passed away this morning in New York. She was the most positive influence on my life. I will remember her laughter, her joy, her dignity as she navigated the challenges that she faced. Never an ill word about anyone crossed her lips. Her ability to forgive left me speechless at times. She truly was a force of nature and as we got closer in my adult life, I leaned on her more and more as my life counselor and the person I knew that lived and loved to the fullest. My sympathies go to her loving husband @marcrosennyc who, for the last 37 years, made her life so wonderful and joyous. Love you mom forever ♥️ #ArleneDahl #Moviestar #legend #mom #RIP”

Guiding Light’s Robert Newman Pays Tribute to the Brilliance of Lisa Brown

On Sunday, longtime Guiding Light mainstay, Robert Newman (Ex-Josh Lewis), shared a heartfelt message on his Facebook page on the death of his former co-star, Lisa Brown (Ex-Nola Reardon).

As previously reported, Brown passed away earlier this week at the age of 67 from cancer. She portrayed the beloved role of Nola on the CBS soap opera from 1980-1985 and was front and center in many stories which featured Nola’s antics, fantasies, and of course, her love affair with Quint, the late Michael Tylo.

In his message on Brown’s death, Robert Newman expressed: “I was greatly saddened to hear of the sudden death of the great Lisa Brown. When I first joined the show in 1981, Lisa was pretty much the center of everything. A real whirlwind. Her work with the late Michael Tylo was fantastic. I particularly have fond memories of Nola’s fantasies …Wizard of Oz, Casablanca, etc. I don’t think I was ever a part of those fantasies, but I remember watching them being taped in the studio and she was just amazing.”

Newman goes on to say: “One of my fondest Lisa memories, however, was sitting in the audience at the Winter Garden Theater in NYC watching Lisa head up the cast of 42nd Street with Lee Roy Reams in 1981 or so. It was one of those times when you see a colleague that you know from one genre, Daytime Drama, in an entirely different genre, Musical Comedy, and you are completely surprised and blown away. Again, she was just fantastic in the role and I as a fellow musical comedy performer, I had great, great respect for her. Below is a clip from a television performance of her as Peggy in 42nd Street. Her death at such a young age is a great loss to the daytime community. Love and prayers to her family and friends.”

Michael Fairman TV also shares below the video posted by Robert below, which reminds us of just how multi-talented Lisa was for her fans, the audience, and to all that knew her. On a personal note: “Lisa always performed at the ‘Night of the Daytime Stars’ benefit for AMFAR in New York City during the AIDS pandemic that I created and produced.  It was the annual event held the night before the Daytime Emmys, and she was always willing to lend her support and talents to help others in need.”
