Ridge is Coming Home – Great News for B&B Fans!
There is good news for The Bold and the Beautiful fans – there is a new Ridge headed back to Los Angeles – in the form of Thorsten Kaye.
Thorsten Kaye who has most recently been seen on All My Children as Zach Slater replaces the originator of the role, Ron Moss. Moss left the Bold and the Beautiful in September 2012 after appearing as Ridge Forrester for 25 years.
Speculation that Ridge would be returning to our TV screens has been rife since The Bold and the Beautiful put out a casting call for “Harper”. The casting call was for an actor that is at least 5’ 11” tall with strong credits for a contract roll. “Harper “was further described as a Caucasian man in his mid-to-late 40s, and, “Handsome and very upscale. He’s also a Great business man with a commanding presence; refined – comes from money.”
Kaye certainly fits the bill. He’s even got a distinct European flair about him which suits the fact that Ridge has been holed up in Paris France for well over 12 months now. Presumably Ridge has been heading up the Forrester Creations International Division and spending time with daughter Steffy who joined dad in Paris in the middle of this year.
All My Children Loses its Zach Slater – Bad News for AMC Fans!
All My Children fans, however, may not be as thrilled with the news as The Bold and the Beautiful fans.
Kaye was appearing on the resurrected online version of All My Children – until it went onto an abrupt and long hiatus. Though there are rumors about production starting again on that soap, Kaye was no longer under contract to Prospect Park. There is no news yet about whether or not All My Children will firstly resume production or re-cast the role of Zach Slater.
Look for Thorsten Kaye and Ridge Forrester to have a first airdate of sometime in December 2013.
