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.

Denise Alexander Responds to Outpouring of Fan Support on Her Return to General Hospital

Longtime fans of General Hospital were over the moon when it was revealed that Denise Alexander was on her way back to the ABC daytime drama series to reprise her role of Dr. Lesley Webber, mother of Laura, played by Genie Francis.

With Laura’s story with her new found half-brothers central to the current storyline, it’s a perfect time for Alexander to be back in Port Charles.

In turn, Denise wrote a message to Sheldon to share publicly.  Part of which read   “Wow! I am breathless! What a wonderful surprise!  I am beyond grateful for all the kind and amazing and funny and sweet and caring and supportive and truly delicious messages. I have never felt so appreciated  and it brought tears and laughter reading each one.”

Alexander added, “I do not have a clue as to how to communicate on the Internet on Twitter.”  She then noted, “I would love to reach each and every person who wrote about that first day back. But I don’t even know what the rules are.  I’ve a vague sense that there is a limit to how long a message can be,but do not know how to reach anyone. Is there any way you could forward at least my thanks to everyone?”

Denise closed with,  “I love each and every message, and am full of gratitude.”

You can view the communication and Denise’s heartfelt message below.

Now let us know what you thought of Denise reaching out to all of the fans, and how grateful she is that viewers are excited to see her back on-screen via the comment section,
