What amazing news! Crystal Chappell is returning to daytime and on a new soap for her, The Bold and the Beautiful, and what’s more, she will be launching the series first-ever lesbian story line!
EW.com learned that Crystal Chappell will portray Danielle, the other mother of Caroline Spencer (Linsey Godfrey) . Caroline was introduced last month as the never-before-seen daughter of Karen Spencer, who is played by longtime B&B favorite Joanna Johnson. Johnson returned to the sudser last month to begin the romantic story line.
Caroline already knows she has two mothers, but the good people of Los Angeles (where B&B is based) don’t know the truth. She’ll reveal it to boyfriend Thomas Forrester and her uncle — and Karen’s brother — Bill (Don Diamont). Chappell is set to debut on- air in mid-May.
Chappell joining B&B re-teams her with Susan Flannery and Hillary B. Smith who direct and co-star in Crystal’s hit web soap, Venice! What do you think of the news of Crystal joining Brad Bell’s acting troupe? And in a lesbian storyline, no less? Let us know!
