51 April 22nd, 2014 The Bold and the Beautiful Casting Female Role Mid-40′s! Who Would You Suggest For The Part?

Courtesy/CBS

Casting news today via Soap Opera Uncensored has that The Bold and the Beautiful is looking for a leading lady type in her mid-40′s for a recurring role on the international hit soap opera!

And giving it a bit of intercontinental flare, according to the casting notice this woman is to be “Aussie/British, Artistic, Beautiful, Strong Business sense. Native accent.”

It sort of sounds like a younger Jackie M (Lesley-Anne Down) doesn’t it?

So now we ask you to put on your casting director hat and post who you think would be a good fit for the part, someone from daytime or primetime television, perhaps?  Let us know!

    Eva isn’t Aussie or British. Plus, she’d probably return to Y&R is she were going to a soap again.

    4everDAYS replied

    They could be going to a full hour. Y&R may be dropped to a half hour.

    Totally agree; frankly I would rather never see Hope or Liam again, but she’s more tolerable with Wyatt.

    Liam Much better than crazy Wyatt!

    I could care less. Whoever they cast will only be used as another tool to prop up either Brooke or Hope or both.
    This soap is a waste of time.

    It must be a new character I assume…but she should have connections with someone on canvas such as knowing Ridge…HMMM? Maybe a past model who worked a Forrester which actually is Liam’s mom…HMMM? Maybe she isn’t dead you know soaps…let the fur fly between mama lionesses Quinn\?!

    You are a crude human being for saying this. You should be disgusted with yourself, continually posting Chaz in the casting. Have you no class?

    Correction: “Chaz Bono”

    Still crude and crass.

    You do realize they don’t actually have to be british or Australian right!;)

    Was also thinking Catherine Oxenberg. She’s 52 but easily could pass for 40s.

    Will really miss feisty Phyllis. Love her. Must have been money negotiations to make her switch. Truly missed.

    I don’t know much about Aussie or British soaps, so I can’t really offer up any advice on who to cast. But I hope, whoever it is, that they’re able to act up to par with the rest of the cast.

    I really miss Jackie and Nick, they were two of my favourite characters. Though their last year on the show was horrible in terms of writing, it was as if they were an afterthought for Brad Bell and that upset me, because Leslie-Anne Down and Jack Wagner are great actors. I’d love for Jackie, Nick, Bridget and Owen to return to the show.

    I don’t know if a new role is what B&B needs right now, the cast is already pretty sizable. We already never see Marcus, Dayzee, Thomas, Danielle, rarely Justin and rarely Thorne.

    If I were in charge of the show I would send both Brooke and Hope on journeys to find themselves, find out who they really are, and what they need to change about themselves. Journeys of self-discovery, similar to Maxie’s on GH. They take up way too much air time, and to be honest, both characters are (and have been for a long time) a complete mess. Brooke is back with Bill, and Hope is on the merry-go-round again with Liam and Wyatt. Terrible decisions for both ladies, but I guess it’s a case of like mother, like daughter. (Things should get interesting when Deacon arrives though!)

    IMO It isn’t fair for a show with such talented actors and an ensemble cast to focus on one or two characters. Recently Brad Bell called Hope the “central character” of the show and I found it insulting to the other actors. I would love to see more Thorne, and as I said I would love the Marone family to return, and put Brooke on the backburnner for a little while, for a change.

    I’ve always hoped the show would pick up the criminally unemployed Elizabeth Hubbard (Lucinda on ATWT) playing a business woman owning a fashion-related company (maybe shoes akin to Manolo Blahnik??). Hubbard can’t play campy the same way that Sally was but she is a hell of an actress and could fill the huge void left by Susan Flannery for a strong, older female to berate Brooke over her continuous sexual misconduct.

    To turn up the camp factor, I’d give her a couple of loyal employees (similar to Darla and Saul were to Sally). I’d find some washed-up former tv actor to play one of them (maybe the gal who played Nellie Olsen on Little House on the Prairie? That woman seems like she has a good sense of comic timing.). Then, add a non-sexual but devoted male employee.

    Top it off later with a couple of good looking kids for Hubbard (Russell Todd to play the son? Someone that Brooke can get her hooks into. Maybe Teri Conn to play the daughter?).

    IDK. The show has vastly improved by moving away from the burned-out Taylor and introducing some new folks (especially the equally loony Quinn and Ally). However, I really think the show needs more. It needs some new “blood” who aren’t connected to the Forresters and Logans.

    I’m a HUGE believer in sticking with your core families but, until recently, B&B has done it too much. At time, the show seems stale and a complete rehash of what we have seen for 20 years. I still can’t fathom why the heck the writers completely ignore Thorne Forrester and give him nothing to do while constantly giving us more Ridge and Brooke!!!

    What does it matter? She will just be another prop for Brooke and Hope, as usual. Hope being the central character is a huge joke. And why cast new actors when they don’t use the ones they have?!

    Just tired of Bill and Brooke and Wyatt! Could use an influx of story for Thorne . Wyatt is promoted far more than his value and the cheesy nature of either the story or acting makes it worse. Too much Brooke centric is destructive and the stories have suffered for it. Eric looks like a senile fool for doing her bidding all the time. Its insufferable. Brad Bell learned little from his father it would appear

    Can’t wait for Wyatt’s girlfriend to show up. Bye bye Wyatt (from Hope). His “poor” momma is goingto go beserk! Can’t wait!
