This week on The Bold and the Beautiful all the groundwork has been laid for the truth to come to light to everyone in Maya Avant’s (Karla Mosley) life!
The Spencer and the Forrester clans and all the people that Maya works with have found out one way or the other that she was born a man, “Myron”. But there is one key person in Maya’s life yet to know, and it looks like this Friday on the May 15th episode of the CBS daytime drama series, it will finally be revealed to him.
The set-up: Maya has been on a trip alone with Rick Forrester (Jacob Young) to the Forrester cabin in Big Bear. Rick is asking Maya to marry him, but Maya decides it’s time to be honest and disclose her truth to the man she hopes will love her unconditionally.
PEOPLE.com has the exclusive this afternoon of an interview with Karla Mosley on filming the pivotal scene where Maya is set to confess all to Rick, plus a sneak peek clip of how it will happen. She revealed “This is the scene, I think, we’ve all been preparing for – both as actors and as an audience. What will Rick’s reaction be? So, as a performer, I worked on two levels. First, I went back to the words of people who have been through it. Deciding when to disclose during dating and how to do it in a way that is both safe and responsible for all parties is a common question for transgender people.” Mosley went on to say: “Ultimately Maya trusts Rick, she loves him enough to risk everything – including letting down some of the walls she’s built up to protect herself – in order to be with him in a healthy way.”
Watch the sneak peek from tomorrow’s episode as Maya begins to tell Rick that she is transgender. Then, let us know, what do you think Rick’s reaction will ultimately be to the news? What have you thought of Karla Mosley’s performance throughout this storyline thus far? Comment below.
