Who Would You Cast In the Role Of Alexandra Forrester On The Bold and the Beautiful?



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?

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?

I totally forgot Thorne has a daughter! The man needs a storyline!

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.

Hear hear!!!!

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.

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

The big news here is that fans want to see more Thorne!

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

LMAO. How true…how very very true.

Too funny!

She probablly wouldn’t do it but Leighton Meester would be a very good choice!

or Melissa Fumero!

She is not available, she’s on FOX’s new show Brooklyn Nine-Nine.

I like Kristen Prout from The Lying Game

Or Natalie Hall

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/ these casting calls!

Like abby newman!

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 that and that will be hard to duplicate!!!!!!

How about Emma Roberts?

I would cast as Alexandria.
Marcy Rylan or Hunter King

Eva langoria

I would like to see Camryn Grimes or Kristen Alderson in the role odf Ally.

My daughter would be a good fit i think..she attended John Canasablanca modeling school for print and film.she will be 16 July 4 if interested contact me at provided email.

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.


Y&R’s Courtney Hope Gives Update Following Car Accident & Turning the Situation into a Positive

The Young and the Restless star Courtney Hope (Sally Spectra) revealed she had been in a car accident near the Harry Houdini Estate in the Hollywood Hills on Monday, December 4th.

Taking to her Instagram story at the time, she wanted to let people know that both she and the people inside the other car were okay.  Hope, who plays Sally Spectra on the CBS daytime drama series, expressed that that while the  incident was a “heavy moment” it wound up being “positive and overwhelmingly beautiful.”

She went on to state, “It ended up being hanging out with the guy (other driver) and his family, and my family, and people that witnessed that stayed for hours and workers and neighbors.”

Making this all the more crazy as Hope explained, “Oprah (Winfrey’s) team was at the Houdini house and them coming down, and it was like, by the end we were like, laughing and taking photos.  I know that sounds absolutely crazy and ridiculous, but I was in shock of how, in such a really heavy moment, something beautiful can come out of it. Honestly, like all that mattered was that we were all okay.”

The actress added, “By the end of the encounter we were exchanging numbers and taking photos. I’m so thankful for that experience.”

Always trying to look at the positive of life, Hope added, “I don’t know if our cars are totaled.”  However, she did share she needed a rental car but found the positive in that sharing a photo of a keychain hanging off the steering wheel that read: “LUV is in the air”

Courtney first played the role of Sally Spectra on The Bold and the Beautiful from 2017 till August of 2020, and then joined The Young and the Restless in the same role later in 2020.

Send your well-wishes Courtney’s way that nothing more serious happened from the car incident via the comment section below.

Kimberly McCullough Shares Remembrance of the Late TV Legend Norman Lear on the Set of ‘One Day At a Time’

Television legend, Norman Lear passed away on Wednesday at the age of 101 years old. The comedy genius who created, wrote and produced some of the greatest sitcoms of all time died of natural causes at his home in Los Angeles on Tuesday.

Lear’s body of work included: All in the Family, One Day at a Time, Maude, The Jeffersons and Good Times, Sanford & Son, plus the soapy, Mary Hartman, Mary Hartman.

General Hospital’s beloved Kimberly McCullough (Robin) has been working as a director in the television industry for years now and upon learning the news of Lear’s passing, shared a very touching moment via her Instagram that stayed with her through her directorial career. McCullough had been a director on the reboot of One Day at a Time that featured EGOT winner, Rita Moreno.

McCullough expressed: “My hat goes off to your, sir Norman. What a wonderful life you lived. In my very first directing job, only 6 weeks after having a baby, I was feeling fragile and not quite ready to get back to work. On the set of One Day At A Time, you squeezed my chin and said ‘Look at you! A baby directing our show.’ It wasn’t condescending at all. In fact you seemed thrilled by how far we’d come in the industry, giving young women a seat at the table. I replied, ‘I’m not a baby. I just had a baby.”‘

McCullough added: “You gave me nod of approval saying, ‘Even better. You let me know if you need anything.’ That meant the world to me. Thank you for your service of the television industry, of our country and being a stand up human. #ripnormanlear”

In a previous post pictured with Norman Lear, Kimberly shared: “Thank you changing the world with your storytelling. Honored to say I’ve been able to work with you. One time I heard you say “but where is the HEART of the story?” I have a feeling you’ve asked that question a lot…”

The Lear family also put out this statement on the death of the iconic TV genius: “Thank you for the moving outpouring of love and support in honor of our wonderful husband, father, and grandfather,” the Lear family said in a statement. “Norman lived a life of creativity, tenacity, and empathy. He deeply loved our country and spent a lifetime helping to preserve its founding ideals of justice and equality for all. Knowing and loving him has been the greatest of gifts. We ask for your understanding as we mourn privately in celebration of this remarkable human being.”

Tonight, across all network television, an in memoriam card will air at 8PM ET/PT to pay tribute to Lear and acknowledging his influence in the medium.
