The Bold and the Beautiful In Talks With Qantas To Bring Show For Location Shoot In Australia!

The Bold and the Beautiful has been the soap on the move in recent years with lush location shoots in countries all around the world.

No other American soap opera has been able to do what the CBS Daytime drama has.  Now it looks like Australia is on the radar as one of the next location shoots B&B is aiming for.  According to MSN.com Australia:  “The Bold and The Beautiful is in talks with Qantas to bring the hugely popular series to Australia.”

A source close to the series shared:  “We are going to Australia that’s for sure. We are just not sure when. We will send a location scout and write the story about the destination.  We are looking for iconic, interesting historic authentic locations.”

Show Producers told AAP (The Australian Associated Press) they were not sure how long the show would stay down under:  “It’s all about the story. It depends on the storyline. We are thinking about Budapest, Poland, and Flemish Belgium. But the only one that’s sure is Australia. We don’t know when it will happen. It may be 2017.”

One intriguing thing to note: The Bold and the Beautiful premiered in 1987.  If the series were to shoot in Australia in 2017, it would create quite an occasion and another milestone for the series, which would then turn 30 years old.

So, what would be a good story to bring B&B to Australia? We know Ivy, and her portrayer Ashleigh Brewer hail from there!  What do you think about BOLD’s ability to make locations shoots happen around the globe?  It would seem that Aussie based airline company Quantas would be perfect marketing partner.  Comment below!

Not really. Eric and Ivy fathers are brothers, Ivy would be first cousins with Eric’s children, like Rick and Ridge, but since Ridge isn’t Eric’s bio son, there is no direct blood relationship between Ivy and Thomas– they are simply second cousins in name only.

These location shoots are always ruined by these crappy Liam triangle stories, in fact the whole show has been ruined by them. If Macy were to be found alive there I’d look forward to it 🙂

I watch sometimes while at home during my lunch. I like how the show goes on location-very rare these days. Have to change the channel when Wyatt is on. What a wimp.

Liam is the wimpiest man on the show, with his brother Wyatt #2. I guess the Stallion just doesn’t sire strong male heirs. Those two brothers need to sit down and talk it through and quit trying to share the same women.

Applaud location shoots. Anything to restore the lustre of daytime. But sad over B&B’s lame and endless triangle stories. I would welcome a genuine mystery or, as a poster suggested, discovery of a lost character and launch of a new plot course. Also wish CBS Daytime loved the location shoots when its other soaps — ATWT and GL — were left in limbo those years before cancellation.

Way I see location shots– vacation for the actors lol
The actors will love it !

Would be fun to see the cast outdoors sweating and sticky, their hair flopped from the humidity, if they go in the summer it’s really hot/humid there..

I have watched bold since it started back in 1987, and before it i watched Another world. I also watch Days of our lives ,and Young and the Restless. I would love to see Bold and the Beautiful come to do some filming In Australia. It had a lot of Australians watch it as it is on 4.30 on channel 10 which is prime watching time. I tape all my shows on my Foxtel and never miss any shows.

I love when they go on location but I agree lets have a mystery or something. Im tired of the same old triangles and would somebody please give that poor Katie with the heart condition a kick in the pants, I’m so sick of her and her insecurities. I like Katie’s acting but she needs to get out of the past as the little girl standing in the window watching her two beautiful sisters Donna & Brooke going out on dates. She needs to stop with her Daddy’s & Mommy’s favorite stuff and realize she is just as beautiful and… Read more »

I’d prefer better writing instead of pretty background shoot locales.

Please stop the madness called Quinn! Better writing please.!!! Now Liam thinks he is Adam and Quinn is Eve?? That is just so stupid. Give him medical help–that is so irresponsible of B & B.

Give Brooke a great storyline please! TV going off again.

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.

Now SiriusXM has made my dream a reality with a podcast featuring friends, both old and new, discussing a variety of topics we all face in life, while getting deep with some experts’ views and advice along the way. Not another podcast, this is off camera!”
