I LOVE the gorgeous Rena Sofer with her dark hair and blue eyes! I just might have to start watching Bold and Beautiful again. I wish her all the best.

Yep! There”s a boat load of past and present actors/characters who have languished on the backburner. I wish her and Darin well.

I’m surprise she didn’t try to return to GH she always claimed Lois was her fave character to play. Oh well good luck and welcome back to daytime .

I wish her well as I have always loved Rena….. But I am disappointed because now she won’t be permitted to attend the GH Fan Club Weekend Past Cast event they are doing for the shows 50th Anniversary. I was so hoping she would have showed up 🙁 Congrats CBS, you have a fantastic actress with Rena.

Its really time for B&B to expand to an hour. With these new additions, what about Carter, Dayzee, Justin, Oliver, and Marcus??? Its an embarrasment of riches and I hope this brings Thorne out of the basement as the show needs another leading man besides Bill. I for one, can’t wait for Wyatt/Hope!!!

Here‘s a thought…instead of hiring someone new…why not give proven fan fave Lesli Kay a call??

Amen! I miss Lesli and I can’t even remember the role she plays, it’s been so long. And bring Thorne back. We don’t need all these new cast members. I can understand a new man for Hope, but his family too???? No.

You got that right! Hey, B&B Powers that Be, listen to our friend Jesse here… Put Lesli Kay (and Winsor Harmon, too, please) front and center. They are Forresters after all and, in my opinion, much more interesting to watch and follow than some of their on-screen kin! Jesse, I second your motion!

That said, I did enjoy Rena Sofer on GH very much. I just wonder how much they will use her talent. So many awesome daytime vets are wasted on B&B for lack of story and time.

Hopefully, these new characters will breathe new life into this listless, repetitive show. B&B still languishes in the shadow of Stephanie’s ghost and relies too heavily on characters that are familiar, rather than intriguing. I can’t believe this show still uses soap staples that played out decades ago (e.g., using pregnancy to compel marriage from an indifferent male; using pregnancy to extend tiresome love triangles that go nowhere; etc.). As is this show’s pathology, they’ll bring on new actors who — along with their underused African American characters — will be the first to be dispensed once their cast barge gets too overloaded. B&B needs new direction STAT.

I have always enjoyed her work over the years. I met her once though on the set of the show Chronicle and was so disappointed to learn that she was so rude and difficult in her dealings with people. One of those people that are more easily admired when they are in character. She was so rude that any time I see her in any ad/show I hope the person she really is doesn’t lead to the show she is on being unsuccessful. I stumble on to this Soap today and turned the channel once I saw and recognized it was her. Yuck!
