After four years as Rick Forrester on The Bold and the Beautiful, Kyle Lowder has been let-go by the series and has parted ways with the Brad Bell soap opera. It seems lack of story, which has clearly been issue for awhile now is the instigator for the casting move.
Soap Opera Digest spoke with Lowder who revealed, ”Brad Bell ( executive producer/head writer) called this morning and said he felt terrible that they haven’t been able to generate enough story for the character. He felt it was in everybody’s best interest that we go in different directions. From my standpoint, it’s an amicable situation. Obviously, it’s their choice, but at the same time, the story has been slow for over a year-and-a-half and like any professional in any line of work would do, you prepare yourself for the next step. So, it wasn’t a surprise that it was going to happen, but it was handled in the most respectful way and I have huge respect for Brad. I had a great four years there and I thank him for the opportunity. And now, onto the next thing.”
On-Air On-Soaps wishes Kyle all the best, and looks forward to following his next acting endeavors!
