Soap fans are in a shock at the news this weekend that one of the “core four” original characters of The Bold and the Beautiful, Ronn Moss had decided to call it quits on the CBS soap after over 25 years of playing Ridge Forrester!
EW.com got some exclusive details of what went down to cause the behind-the-scenes shake-up stating, “An insider tells us that Moss elected not to renew his contract over salary issues. Moss could not be reached for comment.” Next, the production company behind the wildly successful domestic and international soap, Bell Phillip Television confirmed the exit through a rep from the company who noted, “Ronn has spent an amazing 25 years with B&B. We will always consider him family, and we wish him only the best in all of his future endeavors.”
Hard to believe, but true that Ronn Moss will shoot his final scenes for The Bold and the Beautiful this Tuesday, Aug. 14th, and according to EW.com, his last episode will air on a yet-to-be-determined date in September.
We will have more on this story as developments come to light! In the meantime, what do you think about Moss’s exit from B&B? Do you think B&B should have fought harder to keep him? And what’s next in story then? Do you think the series should “kill-off” Ridge? Or, replace Moss with another actor, even though he is so identifiable with the role? Whatever the case, On-Air On-Soaps wishes Ronn all the best on his future endeavors! So weigh-in soapers!
