This week, viewers of The Bold and the Beautiful watched the debut of young actor Anthony Turpel in the role of Ridge and Brooke’s son, R. J. Forrester. In his first scenes opposite series stars and soap vets: Katherine Kelly Lang (Brooke), Thorsten Kaye (Ridge) and Don Diamont (Bill), Turpel seemed to embody the spirit of the teenaged R. J.: tough, spunky, and outspoken, and a young man who loves his parents.
In story, R.J. appeared back in action and on the canvas as Brooke and Ridge shared a moment of closeness, as they discuss Brooke’s pending nuptials to Bill, and Ridge getting back Forrester Creations and running it, because of Brill’s union.
Turpel’s R. J. comes into the scene flaggergasted to hear that his mom is about to marry arch-enemy Dollar Bill Spencer. Later, R. J visits Bill to speak his mind and gives him an earful about why Bill should not marry his mom, and that he utterly disapproves of it.
Seems fan reaction has been in the positive over the last several days as B&B has cast a strong young actor to play a key member of the Forrester family.
