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?

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.

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
k/kay

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??

SteamySteffyfan

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.

Emmanuel Acho Replaces Chris Harrison as Host of ‘The Bachelor’ Finale ‘After the Final Rose’ Special

Former NFL linebacker and Fox Sports analyst and host of the weekly web series Uncomfortable Conversations With a Black Man, Emmnauel Acho has gotten the nod to replace longtime ‘Bachelor’ franchise host, Chris Harrison, for this season’s ‘After the Final Rose’ special.

On Saturday, in an Instagram post confirming the news, Acho wrote, “I’ve accepted the Rose and am honored to be hosting the @bachelorabc After the Final Rose this year. It’s been a pivotal season, and this episode will hopefully be one of the most storied shows in TV history. Empathy is needed and change is coming. Share the news! I’ll see y’all then!”

Previously, Chris Harrison revealed that he was stepping aside from The Bachelor after he made controversial remarks to Rachel Lindsey during her interview with him on Extra.  At that time, Harrison and Lindsey, who was the first Black Bachelorette in the series history, were discussing current contestant Rachael Kirkconnell’s controversy, which included photos of her attending an antebellum-themed college party in 2018, and allegedly liking and sharing social media posts with the Confederate flag and Qanon conspiracies.  Harrison’s comments seemed to indicate he felt people were passing judgement on Kirkconnell on this time of ‘cancel culture’ in our society.  Those remarks inflamed viewers and Lindsey.  As Bachelor Nation knows this season featured Matt James as the first Black bachelor ever within the franchise.

As for Acho, he will anchor the After the Rose special airing on Monday, March 15, immediately following the season finale of The Bachelor. He will sit down with James as well as the three finalists Kirkconnell, Michelle Young and Bri Springs, which is said to include talon the past racist remarks made by Kirkconnell and Harrison’s exit for the special.

So, what do you think about ABC’s choice to replace Chris Harrison for the ‘After the Final Rose” special?  Has this whole season of ‘The Bachelor’ backfired when it should have been groundbreaking? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
