Casting new today out of Soap Opera Digest! This time it looks like The Bold and the Beautiful is once again beefing up their younger set with their search for a young actress to play the role of Alexandra Forrester!

About Alexandra, “She will be a Caucasian female, age 19-21 and is described as “Beautiful. Well Bred. Very Upscale and comes from money.”

Another Forrester is on the way to the canvas! So now the questions we pose to our very MF Soaps site visitors are; who would you cast in the role of Alexandra? What actress from daytime or primetime do you think fits the bill, the character description, and  is someone you would like to see on B&B? 

Share your thoughts on the comment section below! Remember to put your Casting Director hats on!

The description, like most soap casting calls, could be played by anyone. I’m assuming she’s a Forrester cousin.

Thorne’s daughter with Darla

That was Alexandria, although it could easily be changed when time came to film.

Technically you’re right, Mo.

Finally ! I have been waiting for this character for a long time. Hopefully this will also beef up Thorne’s presence as well.

At last. I don’t care who they get, as long as it means airtime for Thorne!!!

I highly doubt it once she visits Daddy in the basement then she will be thrown in with Hope and that bunch and we won’t see any relationship with them. Future storylines say Quinn/Rena Sofer is going to go after Eric. Only 25 yrs age difference. Brad Bell just will not write for Winsor Harmon.

25??? That’s generous, I was thinking about what it must be…Quinn was supposed to be young as a mother. Brooke is a good bit older than Quinn. I know these are rubberyfigures but it would have to be almost 35 years. Ah, life in soaps…

Bongo Rena Sofer is 44 and John McCook is 69. Like I said he just won’t write for Winsor Harmon but he never really has. Bringing him up from the basement to do this silly 2 week deal we all knew Shorty with an attitude was going to stay as President. Now when does he work?

Cast Camryn Grimes/Cassie please so she will get out of my poor Sharon’s head!

This is bullshit. They need older women on that show, not younger bimbos. The show is mouldering without Flannery and Conley at the helm.

Well it is about time– I have been against SORASing in the past, but since they already did Hope and the rest of them– it was only fair to get Thorne’s daughter into the act. Speaking of the Forresters what happened to Brooke’s youngest kids–RJ and Jack? I never hear them mentioned and with Brooke spending time with Bill just wondering where she put those two boys.

k/kay
Guest

With Ridge and Nick gone they will never be mentioned again. I saw a movie the other day with Jennifer Finnagan/Bridget who won three emmys her career has really done well, then you watch KKL on B&B and she is doing the same old thing still laying on her back oh well it’s a paycheck but I am thinking the character has never grown.

Looks like The Forresters are moving front and center as they should be…. Glad to see Thorne is getting more airtime and looks like sparks are about to fly at FC….

Someone who will make us forget Hope!!! How about Crystal Hunt??

Lol Someone so we can get rid of Hope she could kill someone with how boring her character is and now the writers have gone as far as trying make her act like a Steffy imposter it’s not working it never will. Jacqueline MacInnes Wood has exceptional talent and only she can be Steffy Spencer it is time to send Hope to Forrestor International or the basement never to be seen again. I think Crystal Hunt would be perfect as Ally Forrestor and it’s time to go. HOPE LOGAN !!!

You guys…Crystal Hunt is like 30. I know that ages of performers are rarely the same as the character…but lets get a believable young girl into this role.

Kirsten Storm would be a good Ally

Unless she can sleep with Brooke, her storyline will never take off. Sorry, that’s just how Bell writes.

She may be too old for the role, but I would love to see Farah Fath (Gigi Morasco, OLTL) in the role

Char description for alex forrester is really lame. It’s the same old description for pretty much every leading young lady from core families that are white. Rich. well bred. classy. Yawn. Can’t she be a blonde ditz like her mother darla who was ran over by tay? And what’s w/ casting alex when taylor’s off b&b? Taylor is b&b. There won’t be any conflict for alex. Can’t they describe alex as this shallow and elitist airhead who only cares abt trends and popularity? That’s how most fashionistas are. Char description is like pre psycho caroline. Irrelevant b&b stays irrelevant w/… Read more »

Emma Roberts as Alexandra Forrester, with a change in head writer to Bridget Dobson!

Emme Rylan played Abby on Y&R, you would have to steal her from another soap, she would be perfect. I would like to see Sharon Case go to BB, Y&R is writing awful stories for her. She could be Brooke’s twin sister.

How about Julie Marie Berman!

I have been waiting for them to cast this role forever!! But odd timing with Taylor not on the canvas, but if it beefs up Thorne’s story, I’m all for it!!! I wouldn’t. Mind seeing a fresh new face in daytime, as when they cast Steffy and Hope, those were excellent casting choices, but I am def assuming Alexandra will be a blonde bombshell, so we could do Julie Berman(ex-LuLu, GH), Emme Rylan would be perfect as well. Whoever they cast, they have to make sure she has that rivalry chemistry with Hope, JMW and Kim Matula were dynamite with… Read more »

Wish she was old enough to offsett the love triangle among Liam, Hope, and Wyatt. I will give a chance. Did not care for debut.

B&B’s Jacqueline MacInnes Wood Talks Motherhood, Steffy’s Opioid Addiction and Love Life on ‘Home & Family’

Daytime Emmy Award winner and a nominee again this year for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Daytime Drama Series, The Bold and the Beautiful’s Jacqueline MacInnes Wood (Steffy Forrester) chatted with Home & Family.

During her segment, Jacqui discussed becoming a mom again for the second time and welcoming her new son, Lenix, and balancing raising two boys with playing the day to day perils of Steffy Forrester.

As soap fans know, last year’s storyline where Steffy became addicted to painkillers provided her with meaty material which landed her as one of the frontrunners for next week’s 48th annual Daytime Emmy Awards to air on Friday night, June 25th on CBS.

MacInnes Wood became emotional when telling how Steffy’s addiction intervention helped others, relating: “I was flooded with all of these messages, and this one woman reached out to me and she said her son… it still gets me emotional … but her son was addicted and that intervention was the same thing with her family, and it touched me in such a way and she said luckily that he is sober now.”

Jacqui also talked about Steffy’s on-screen love life …. and her real-life love and husband, Elan Ruspoli.

You can watch the full interview segment here.

So, what do you think of Jacqueline raising a new baby boy, being a mom to the other, while playing Steffy’s emotional storylines? Comment below.
