Fans were shocked when The Bold and the Beautiful suddenly killed-off unstable Aly Forrester, but one thing was for sure, her portrayer Ashlyn Pearce, went out with a bang with many scenes that she could easily use to garner a Daytime Emmy nomination next year.
Now Pearce is talking to Soap Opera Digest in her first exit interview that will be on-sale tomorrow in the latest edition of the publication.
As a preview she shared with SOD that she received a call from Brad Bell (executive producer and head writer, B&B) on her imminent demise: “My first thought was, ‘Oh, no. This is the death of my character and I’m really sad about that.’”
Ashlyn went on to thank the fans for their outpouring of support when they learned of her on-screen departure: “Aly resonated with a lot of viewers, but the magnitude of people who were sad about losing this character … it touched me. That’s when it hit me that, ‘Wow, this is really over.’”
