So many of you have posted comments upon learning the news that Kim Matula has wrapped at The Bold and the Beautiful after four years as the central young heroine of the series, Hope Logan. Matula, who finished taping last month, decided to depart the series to pursue other opportunities within her acting career.
Now comes word via this week’s Soap Opera Digest (on newsstands now) that Kim’s final airdate will be next Friday on the December 12th episode of B&B. Next week, be on the lookout for emotional and heartbreaking scenes in story for long suffering star-crossed lovers, Liam (Scott Clifton) and Hope.
As to the big question of whether Hope will be recast, the series EP and head writer Brad Bell had this to share with SOD on Matula’s exit: “Hope Logan is a critical and central character to the show. Hope will continue to be on the show. We’re losing Kim Matula, who is a brilliant actress, and I am hoping, at some point, she will return to the role – but the role will continue.”
So how do you think Hope will exit the canvas? Are you looking forward to Matula’s final scenes? Are you glad there may be a recast coming as teased by Bell? Comment below!
