The Bold and the Beautiful will continue to tell the story of Maya Avant (Karla Mosley), who viewers just learned was born a man named Myron. The transgender twist has gotten a lot of mainstream pick-up.  Now, according to Soap Opera Digest the CBS soap opera has put out a casting call looking for a transgender actor or actress of any ethnicity for a short-term role.

The part is set to appear in four episodes for now, but it may lead to more.  The casting breakdown is asking for “A strong, confidant person who’s completed their transition and is mentoring other Trans people.”  The person who will play this role will start taping April 7th.

So, intrigued to see how this character will come into the picture in Maya’s story? Glad to hear B&B is reaching into the transgender community for a performer to fill the part?  Comment below

Remember Zarf?

We were treated to speeches but not much else. I’m hoping that this is better story telling than that. But so far it feels more preachy than story based.

I like the actress and I’m grateful for anything that isn’t another triangle, especially on this show. While I’m all for the ‘teachable moment’ I truly hope this aims higher. As EMPIRE ably showed you can do teachable and great character driven stories.

I hope they get the balance right.

It is interesting storyline.The fact remains Maya has lied to Rick, he should drop her fast. Return toCaroline.
Rick cannot have children with Maya again she has lied. Poor Rick.

Agree, poor Rick again has been betrayed and lied to he should drop Maya fast. Get Caroline back.

I like “Maya” I don’t think she lied to Rick I’m sure there’s things Maya doesn’t know about him personal things. So I think he should forgive her and move past it they can always adopt!

Chaz Bono would be a obvious choice if he/she is fully transitioned. Does anybody know if that’s the case?

Chaz is a fully transgendered male, but too well-known, in my opinion for this program. It WOULD be more “infomercial” than show if he came on. Most of the contestants on RuPaul’s Drag Race are drag queens. Men who DRESS as women, but are still male. There have been a couple who are transgendering, or who have enhanced their breasts, but not that have completely changed. One, I believe, either was going through it or had chaned from female to male, * can’t recall which. This was in the last couple seasons. If this is handled right, it could be… Read more »

I can’t decide if all of this is ground-breaking and quality writing or if it is an exploitative attempt to grab headlines and ratings.

It will be interesting to see if, two years from now, if Maya remains a significant character on this show or conveniently leaves after this plot plays out.

By the way, I do remember that Zarf storyline on AMC. It was beyond AWFUL.

I hope that the writer will tell the whole story about Maya/Myron Aimont. It would be interested to see how she was able to afford the operation to change from him to her. How did the parent handle the fact that their son become the daughter . I would also see how Maya learn to handle the change in her life. I got a feeling that Nicole will become Maya worst nightmare.

We know how the Avants handled the transition–poorly. They acted like Nicole was an only child. They didn’t talk about their firstborn. They thought it was something Maya could control (wanting to be a girl).

This could be a great story line or, like other B&B plot initiatives, it will come and go quickly. Unless it is a triangle involving Liam, then it must drag on forever.

I couldn’t agree more but I think they will have all the hugs & kisses for poor Maya and they will treat it like a disease. In reality Caroline should find out first and blow it out of the water at a board meeting (just like Maya did with her). Pam & Donna would be sitting gossiping at the desk and laughing,Katie will always side with her sis Brook who wants Rich & Caroline back together & said she doesn’t trust Maya,Ivy can’t stand her because of the treatment her & Aly are getting so it will be a joke… Read more »

I think that Bill should get wind of it first. After all…He has the publications to spread the word to the world and institute the take over that’s been on the agenda for awhile. I would rather see Rick react as is predictable. And Maya/Myron should be treated as most would…With disdain. THAT is realistic. People will be upset because she lied. I agree with a previous poster that trying to make people accept this is a sure way to lose viewers because there will just always be people who will not accept transgender people. You cannot force people to… Read more »

I really do not want to see this story line. When this soap goes to homosexual story line then I will turn it off forever. Just because they want ratings is why this yuk is put on here. I always thought Bold and Beautiful was a good soap. But not now.

The comments about drag performers playing a transgender character are ridiculous. Drag is a performance. It’s a caricature. How can you people think it would be anyway appropriate to represent trans folk like that?

Real trans people aren’t performing. This is who they are. There are trans people who transition. Who live daily, 24/7, as real people and are not performing.

Seriously, gross to all of you who can’t discern the difference between drag artists and real people Laverne Cox or Janet Mock.

B&B’s Katherine Kelly Lang and Ashley Jones Reveal They Want Brooke & Bridget To Deal with Their Shared Past with Deacon

Katherine Kelly Lang (Brooke) of The Bold and the Beautiful was last Friday’s guest on BOLD Live, and during her interview with B&B supervising producer and host, Casey Kasprzyk, none other than Ashley Jones (Bridget) made a surprise appearance.

Once Jones arrived on the livestream (late in the episode), the discussion turned to wishing that Brooke and Bridget would get the opportunity to deal with the fallout from years ago between mother and daughter.

If fans recall, Bridget was married to Deacon (Sean Kanan), and then he had an affair with Brooke, and then Brooke became pregnant with Hope.

On BOLD Live, Lang said, “There is so much good story there.”  She then added, “I honestly feel Brooke and Bridget never dealt with that. It’s honestly something that was pushed down.”

Ashley shared on the current state of B&B’s episodes: “This is the juiciest the shows been in a long time.”  And on Brooke/Deacon/Bridget, Ashley concurred with Kelly: “Oh. 100% … they never dealt with it.”

Watch BOLD Live with Katherine Kelly Lang and special guest Ashley Jones below.

Then let us know, would you like to see Bridget return and in-turn bring with her some meaty scenes between mother and daughter, especially given Brooke’s temptation with the bottle again? Share your thoughts in the comment section.
