Casting news today via Soap Opera Uncensored has that The Bold and the Beautiful is looking for a leading lady type in her mid-40’s for a recurring role on the international hit soap opera!

And giving it a bit of intercontinental flare, according to the casting notice this woman is to be “Aussie/British, Artistic, Beautiful, Strong Business sense. Native accent.”

It sort of sounds like a younger Jackie M (Lesley-Anne Down) doesn’t it?

So now we ask you to put on your casting director hat and post who you think would be a good fit for the part, someone from daytime or primetime television, perhaps?  Let us know!

Eva isn’t Aussie or British. Plus, she’d probably return to Y&R is she were going to a soap again.

They could be going to a full hour. Y&R may be dropped to a half hour.

Well anything to get more NEW excitement into this show…. and now it looks as if Hope and Liam are getting back together….come on! D we really have to endure that once again??? I thought that story was over and dead….
I could almost stomach Hoe when she is with Wyatt..Liam is a wet noodle and so so boring!

Totally agree; frankly I would rather never see Hope or Liam again, but she’s more tolerable with Wyatt.

I could care less. Whoever they cast will only be used as another tool to prop up either Brooke or Hope or both.
This soap is a waste of time.

It must be a new character I assume…but she should have connections with someone on canvas such as knowing Ridge…HMMM? Maybe a past model who worked a Forrester which actually is Liam’s mom…HMMM? Maybe she isn’t dead you know soaps…let the fur fly between mama lionesses Quinn?!

I think Jamie Luner need to return to soaps!! If she’s not cast as the new Phyllis on Y&R, she needs to head to BOLD!!! She’s too sexy not to be on soaps!!!!!

I don’t know much about Aussie or British soaps, so I can’t really offer up any advice on who to cast. But I hope, whoever it is, that they’re able to act up to par with the rest of the cast.

I really miss Jackie and Nick, they were two of my favourite characters. Though their last year on the show was horrible in terms of writing, it was as if they were an afterthought for Brad Bell and that upset me, because Leslie-Anne Down and Jack Wagner are great actors. I’d love for Jackie, Nick, Bridget and Owen to return to the show.

I don’t know if a new role is what B&B needs right now, the cast is already pretty sizable. We already never see Marcus, Dayzee, Thomas, Danielle, rarely Justin and rarely Thorne.

If I were in charge of the show I would send both Brooke and Hope on journeys to find themselves, find out who they really are, and what they need to change about themselves. Journeys of self-discovery, similar to Maxie’s on GH. They take up way too much air time, and to be honest, both characters are (and have been for a long time) a complete mess. Brooke is back with Bill, and Hope is on the merry-go-round again with Liam and Wyatt. Terrible decisions for both ladies, but I guess it’s a case of like mother, like daughter. (Things should get interesting when Deacon arrives though!)

IMO It isn’t fair for a show with such talented actors and an ensemble cast to focus on one or two characters. Recently Brad Bell called Hope the “central character” of the show and I found it insulting to the other actors. I would love to see more Thorne, and as I said I would love the Marone family to return, and put Brooke on the backburnner for a little while, for a change.

I’ve always hoped the show would pick up the criminally unemployed Elizabeth Hubbard (Lucinda on ATWT) playing a business woman owning a fashion-related company (maybe shoes akin to Manolo Blahnik??). Hubbard can’t play campy the same way that Sally was but she is a hell of an actress and could fill the huge void left by Susan Flannery for a strong, older female to berate Brooke over her continuous sexual misconduct.

To turn up the camp factor, I’d give her a couple of loyal employees (similar to Darla and Saul were to Sally). I’d find some washed-up former tv actor to play one of them (maybe the gal who played Nellie Olsen on Little House on the Prairie? That woman seems like she has a good sense of comic timing.). Then, add a non-sexual but devoted male employee.

Top it off later with a couple of good looking kids for Hubbard (Russell Todd to play the son? Someone that Brooke can get her hooks into. Maybe Teri Conn to play the daughter?).

IDK. The show has vastly improved by moving away from the burned-out Taylor and introducing some new folks (especially the equally loony Quinn and Ally). However, I really think the show needs more. It needs some new “blood” who aren’t connected to the Forresters and Logans.

I’m a HUGE believer in sticking with your core families but, until recently, B&B has done it too much. At time, the show seems stale and a complete rehash of what we have seen for 20 years. I still can’t fathom why the heck the writers completely ignore Thorne Forrester and give him nothing to do while constantly giving us more Ridge and Brooke!!!

weren’t they casting a british sex kitten in her 20s recently? what happened to that? any one keep track of how many of these casting calls ACTUALLY come to fruition?

I’m late to the party, but I’d love to see Kelley Menighan Hensley. And then they could also bring in her wonderful hubby Jon – aka Dr. Meade – full-time. Win Win!!!

What does it matter? She will just be another prop for Brooke and Hope, as usual. Hope being the central character is a huge joke. And why cast new actors when they don’t use the ones they have?!

Just tired of Bill and Brooke and Wyatt! Could use an influx of story for Thorne . Wyatt is promoted far more than his value and the cheesy nature of either the story or acting makes it worse. Too much Brooke centric is destructive and the stories have suffered for it. Eric looks like a senile fool for doing her bidding all the time. Its insufferable. Brad Bell learned little from his father it would appear

Can’t wait for Wyatt’s girlfriend to show up. Bye bye Wyatt (from Hope). His “poor” momma is goingto go beserk! Can’t wait!

Network Exec, Angelica McDaniel On Y&R’s Staying Power: “We Have This Award-Winning, Ratings-Generating, Money-Making Show, And It Really Adds Value To CBS.”

This week, The Young and the Restless celebrated 30 years as the number-one rated daytime soap opera.  That is a streak of 1,560 weeks in the top spot.

Angelica McDaniel, executive vp daytime programs and syndicated program development at CBS, spoke to the Hollywood Reporter on what has made this remarkable run; attributing it to strong storytelling and a cast that includes several beloved veterans who have been around the entire time.

The executive noted that while other soaps over the years have fallen by the wayside, and even though we are down to only four surviving network soap operas, that Y&R will be around with no end in sight.

McDaniel stated, “We have this award-winning, ratings-generating, money-making show, and it really adds value to CBS. We expect it be a part of our lineup in the future.”

She also added, “The Young and the Restless has some of the best actors in the industry — not in soaps, not in daytime, but in television. We have iconic, legacy characters that have been on our show for decades. Melody Thomas Scott will be celebrating her 40th year on the show in February. Peter Bergman just reached his 30th anniversary in November. Eric Braeden started in 1980. We just have an incredible arsenal of actors who are so talented and play these characters so well that you don’t even realize they’re characters. They become people who are part of your life, part of your daily existence.”

As for the continual investment and ways the audience watches the show on various platforms, McDaniel expresed: “The great thing about daytime television is we have loyal, passionate viewers, and they really like to tune in day and date. They want to stick with their stories and see what’s happening today. … Having said that, The Young and the Restless is also one of the top streamed shows on CBS.com. As trends evolve, we are where our viewers are, and we’re making shows readily accessible so they can get their fix and follow their stories.”

So, what do you think about Y&R? Will it remain if and when all other soaps have come to theirconclusion? Do you think it will continue on for years to come, given its position at number #1? Comment below!

Jacob Young Offers Up Thoughts On Rick and Maya’s Split On The Bold and the Beautiful

As fans of CBS Daytime’s The Bold and the Beautiful know, Daytime Emmy-winner Jacob Young (Rick Forrester) has been off the canvas for some time, and the actor had gone on recurring status with the series.

Young has been busy with other projects involving acting roles, his You Tube show, and music career, but certainly is open to a return to the soap opera.

But after the cover of this week’s Soap Opera Digest hit newsstands; which indicates that Rick and Maya have split with the return on-air of Karla Mosley (Maya) (who had been off the show for maternity leave), it clearly looks like the show is moving in a different direction.

Jacob took to Twitter to offer up his feelings on the matter tweeting: “I for one am incredibly sad and disappointed. Rick and Maya have split. (Love that would never die) I loved working with Karla Mosley.  it has been the highlight of my 21 year career in daytime. TRUST ME when I say your opinion matters.”

Since that posting, fans of the couple known as #Raya, have been voicing their thoughts and sharing photos of the on-screen duo.  Young responded to one in particular saying, “Who remembers this? Gosh, I miss Maya.”  In it,the posting read: “This is heartbreaking, Raya was the only example of what true love looks like on that soap!”

Previously, B&B has told the emotional and socially-relevant love story of a transgender woman falling in love with one of the men of the wealthy and renowned Forrester family.

So, what do you think of Jacob’s comments?  Do you want Rick back on the canvas?  What should then happen next for Maya with no Rick?  Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
