The Bold and the Beautiful’s Katherine Kelly Lang is about to have two of daytime’s all-time leading men by her side in what would appear to be on paper an upcoming triangle and battle for the love of Brooke.
As viewers know, All My Children favorite Thorsten Kaye has been cast as Ridge Forrester replacing Ronn Moss who chose to depart the series in the key role after 25 years quite some time ago.
Since Katherine has remained a very close friend of Moss’ since he left the series, and she created the love story of Brooke and Ridge with him, it may prove to be a bit challenging at the beginning for longtime fans, and for Lang. However, the show must go on and this does open up more story opportunities for everyone on the canvas. And, there is absolutely no doubt of the acting chops of fan favorite Thorsten Kaye!
Lang exclusively welcomed Thorsten to the cast in the latest issue of Soap Opera Uncensored relating: “Even though I will miss Ronn Moss as Ridge and all the special years we worked together and the bond that we shared, I would like to welcome Thorsten Kaye onto the show and to the interesting changes that he will bring. It will definitely be different and hard to realize anybody else in that role but I am confident that Thorsten will surprise us. Welcome to the show Thorsten!”
Kaye has already begun taping episodes of the CBS soap, and will first appear on-air on the December 13th episode.
