Last week, fans of The Bold and the Beautiful learned that the very popular Pierson Fodé  has chosen to leave his role as Thomas Forrester.

Pierson had already taped his last episode at the CBS daytime drama series.

Following the news of his departure from the Forrester clan, and his decision to move on to other projects in his burgeoning film and television career, Pierson took to his Instagram to share a heartfelt farewell message to his colleagues and his legions of fans and followers.

Fodé shared: “The decision to say goodbye to The Bold and the Beautiful didn’t come easily but with sleepless nights and countless questions. What a surreal experience to have but ultimately I have to go where my heart leads me. It’s what we all have to do. I can’t be more thankful to have had a boss like Brad Bell who understood and encouraged my decision to explore. Thank you to every hard working soul at @cbsdaytime and bold who let me work beside you. And thank you to all the fans that not only accepted me but championed me through my time on the show. At some point I will likely have to pass the baton of Thomas to another hideous looking guy;) but when the time comes for him to step into my shoes, I hope my performance will haunt him for the rest of his life. Thanks for allowing me into all of your lives and I hope you follow me on my journey to new things. #Dreams

So, what did you think of Pierson’s goodbye message?  Are you sad to see him go, as we are?  

Now that also begs the question, who will end up playing Thomas Forrester in the future? Comment below.

    Should his primetime endeavors not pan out, Brian Craig (ex-Morgan, GH) would be brilliant as a recast Thomas.

    I’m sorry to see Pierson go.


  2. Mateo says:

    All I can say is that Pierson is so flipping beautiful and I know he will do well in this medium — entertainment. He did a good job in his character and mostly he seems like a genuinely decent man. Good luck Pierson, now marry me ……. =)


  3. Matt says:

    Will he be written out or recast?


  4. Mo says:

    When is his last airdate?


  5. Kevin C says:

    Pierson, you will be missed and I wish you nothing but the best…You by far was my favorite actor who played the role of Thomas…I look forward to seeing you in other projects and until then stay safe and well…

    Sad to see him go. Was really starting to like his character! The chemistry between him and Sally was awesome! Good luck with your new endeavors and dreams!

    So disappointed he’s leaving. He and “Sally” are perfect together…and he and Steffy actually look like brother and sister. He’s gorgeous; perfect casting both in looks and ability.

    I do, however, hope they recast the role. Although, now that he’s out of the picture it looks like they’re possibly going in a Liam/Sally direction? (I really DID like Sally and Thomas…). It was too abruptly halted.
