The Bold and the Beautiful has been tearing it up of late with an umbrella story centered around an embittered Rick Forrester (Jacob Young), who after being fed up and being tossed aside by his father Eric (John McCook) in favor of Ridge (Thorsten Kaye) for the CEO seat at Forrester Creations, and never getting the opportunity to take the reins, decided turnabout is fair play and then some!  The new Rick is ready to take down those who get in his way to what he feels is rightfully his, especially after being kicked in the teeth by his then wife Caroline (Linsey Godfrey) who was smooching with sworn enemy number one … Ridge!

In addition, this storyline has given viewers an opportunity to see the acting mettle of Daytime Emmy winner Jacob Young!  So much so that back in December, On-Air On-Soaps named Jacob are pick for the Outstanding Supporting Actor of 2014, and the story has just gotten better and better into 2015.  We caught up with Jacob at the recent on set celebration for The Bold and the Beautiful’s 7000th episode, which included the studio dedication of Stage 31 to Jacob’s first soap boss and current soap boss, Brad Bell (head writer and executive producer, B&B).

Playing troubled, bad, misunderstood, and misguided is nothing new for Young having also played JR Chandler on ABC’s All My Children.  But Rick takes soap revenge to a whole new level, especially when he and his current flame Maya (Karla Mosley) get together for some collusion!  And as for Young’ intense scenes with Linsey Godfrey of late, they have been nothing short of exquisite work in this genre.  Here’s what Jacob had to say about finally being handed the ball and running with it … and more!
