The Bold and the Beautiful Turns 33 Today; Thanks Fans For Tuning In Each and Every Day

Photo: JPI

It was first back on this date in 1987 that we became familiar with the Forrester and the Logans, and from there all the other enduring familial connections that have remained, or come and gone.   Throughout it all, one thing is for sure. The Bold and the Beautiful remains the #2 soap in America and the most-watched soap opera in the world, with its huge worldwide reach and popularity.

B&B still has two original series stars attached to the show who are still as vibrant and as important as ever.  Of course, we are talking about Katherine Kelly Lang (Brooke) and John McCook (Eric).

We wanted to thank all of the loyal B&B fans for tuning in each and every weekday. And a special shoutout to @JohnMcCook44 and @KatherineKellyL  who have been on our cast since DAY ONE!”

John McCook shared: “It’s sobering time in the USA today, but in spite of that, we take great pride and happiness to celebrate (even without a gleeful get-together) our B&B 33rd birthday today!! Our success as a show is your success as our fabulous fan base…So grateful to you all!!”

After Susan left the show did a nose dive it’s never come back ! Brad has no respect for his actors and he shows that with how he treats them he has had hundreds of good actors and he just dumps them like a small child who gets tired of a toy no explanation what so ever they just poof disappear from the screen !

Happy Happy Birthday The Bold and the Beautiful! I was a sophomore in high school when you premiered. Thank you for the loves, laugh, fashion, and inspiration. I wrote a character and plot for Sally. After Bradley Bell sent me a script for encouragement (which I still have) I ended up doing internships at both Soap Opera Weekly in 2001 and Soap Opera Digest 2002. I’m a writer, today. Moved away from soaps and more into slice-of-life recently. Now, home quarantined…I’m watching the Fantastic Four soaps again for comfort and familiarity. Yes, I’m hyper critical, however, only want to be… Read more »

I really miss B&B. I had watched from the beginning, but with the “new Thomas” SL, I just had to stop. It was too disturbing and sickening to watch. If he ever leaves the show,I will certainly start watching again.

I liked the episodes with the new Thomas except his obsession with Dope!!! The way Ridge stuck up for him instead of listening to Broke like he always does & letting her lead him around by the nose!! Ridge needs to dump Broke for good!!!

Isn’t that funny? I couldn’t stand Stephanie, and more recently Taylor, who turned out to be as nutty as her patients.

Temporary recasts have been a common occurrence on ABC’s General Hospital, of late, but they have kept the characters and actions going when the actors have to step out of their role for a short term due to a myriad of reasons.

Now comes word that actor Brad Schmidt temporarily is filling-in for Johnny Wactor in the role of Brando Corbin.

Soap Opera Digest revealed the fill-in casting news in their latest issue on newsstands now.

No intel on what GH airdates Schmidt will be replacing Wactor in, but they should be coming up very shortly.

In his career, Schmidt actually appeared on As the World Turns and Guiding Light back in 2002, and has been seen in numerous primetime series including: Summerland, House of Lies and Yellowstone. 

Wactor started his run as Brando back in 2020 on GH.

Interestingly enough, Wactor’s on-screen lady love, Sofia Mattsson (Sasha) was recently replaced on-screen by her own sister, Helena Mattsson for a few episodes, and now it looks like the tables will be turned for Sofia acting with Wactor’s fill-in.

So, check out Brad on upcoming episodes of GH, and then let us know what you thought of him.  Comment below.
