What Happened to Reese on The Bold & The Beautiful

The multitalented Wayne Brady added soap star to his resume with his role as Dr. Reese Buckingham on The Bold & The Beautiful. While the actor’s daughter, Maile Brady, appeared on the soap as Tiffany, he didn't play her fictional father. Instead, Reese was the father of Zoe Buckingham who found himself at the center of a dramatic storyline that changed the canvas in a major way! Apparently, Brady landed the gig after visiting the set during his daughter’s daytime debut, where he impressed headwriter and producer Bradley Bell so much he was inspired to cast him in the new role. Brady made his debut back at the end of November 2018, and the good doctor soon found himself mixed up with Taylor Hayes, leaping to her defense when she would come under attack by Brooke. But Reese had a history of dating wealthy women and dumping them when he gets what he wanted,

Can Thomas Be Redeemed on The Bold & The Beautiful?

Thomas has reached new levels of depravity this summer on The Bold & The Beautiful, and though his dastardly deeds seem out of character for a member of the Forrester family, executive producer and headwriter Bradley Bell gives his seal of approval to the character’s mean streak! “I wanted a darker Thomas,” Bell explained to fans earlier this summer at the B&b fan event. The scribe went on to say that with both Bill and Quinn on their very best behavior of late, he needed someone to fill the void in the villainy department. “We needed someone to drive story, and I thought this character of Thomas, with Matthew [Atkinson] playing it, would be just the jolt in the arm we needed.” Making Thomas a supervillain "has been so much fun," said his portrayer.

The Bold and the Beautiful's 10 Best Characters of All Time, Ranked

Fashion trends come and go, but intriguing characters are always in style. Take, for instance, the 10 that we’ve singled out from The Bold and the Beautiful’s 32 years of dapper designers and manipulative models, amorous CEOs and ambitious PYTs.

These are not the bellbottoms of characters, the sort that make you look back and ask, “What were we thinking?” On the contrary, these are classics, creations of the late William J. Bell and wife Lee Phillip Bell, and/or their successor, son Bradley Bell. They’ve withstood the test of time to retain as permanent a spot in our

B&B's Don Diamont Looks Back at 10 Years as Bill... and Wants 10 More! (Exclusive)

It was May 12, 2009, when The Bold & The Beautiful’s Stephanie set foot for the first time in Dollar Bill Spencer’s office asking him to publish her trash-talking diatribes against the Logan women. “I like the way you think,” the ruthless publisher chuckled, “and it’s my pleasure to be a part of it.” A pleasure, indeed, not just for Bill but for his portrayer, Don Diamont, who feels immeasurably lucky to have spent the past 10 years breathing deliciously jaw-dropping life into a character that, in many ways, has breathed fresh life into the show itself. We sat down with the actor to discuss this milestone anniversary and what it means to him. Soaps In Depth: Take us back to your first day on the job. What do you remember from that time period? Don Diamont: “[Executive producer and head writer Bradley Bell] created this character for me after a very unceremonious departure from The

Please join us on congratulating Colleen Bell to her new appointment as director of the California Film Commission. The former producer of The Bold & The Beautiful — and wife of the soap’s executive producer and headwriter, Bradley Bell — has replaced Amy Lemisch in the position.

Before that, she was the U.S. ambassador to Hungary from 2014-17. In addition to her producer role on B&B, Bell has held several positions at Bell-Phillip Television Productions, including director of special projects and script supervisor.

‘General Hospital,’ ‘The Young & The Restless’ Among Daytime Dramas Celebrating the Next Generation
If only doctors, lawyers, cops and crime bosses spring to mind when you think about daytime dramas, you haven’t been tuning in lately. From 20-somethings mesmerized by a charismatic cult leader, to a wannabe influencer using social media to sabotage her boyfriend’s marriage-of-convenience, to an undocumented immigrant, the offspring of some of the most popular character of the ’80s and ’90s are breathing new life into an aging genre and attracting new viewers along the way.

“If you look at our demographics, we’ve actually grown in the 18-25,” says Heather Tom, actress on “The Bold and the Beautiful” and five-time Emmy winner who landed her first daytime gig at age 15. “There’s a lot that daytime can speak to a younger generation with.”

That is, after all, why the Daytime Emmys include categories honoring “younger” actors and actresses, in addition to the more traditional lead and supporting categories.

How Daytime Dramas Tackled Timely Social Issues This Emmy Season
In 1962, legendary soap scribe Agnes Nixon wrote a uterine cancer storyline involving beloved Bert Bauer (Charita Bauer) on “Guiding Light,” prompting many women to visit their doctors and get Pap smears. There were no Daytime Emmys back then to acknowledge Nixon’s tale, but since 1973, the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences (NATAS) has been handing out gold statuettes to producers, writers, actors and other creative personnel for their outstanding work in social-issue stories similar to Nixon’s.

The late Nixon recounted in her 2017 memoir, “My Life to Live,” that she had to battle network execs to tell Bert’s uterine cancer story, but today’s writers appear to be able to tackle pretty much anything and everything.

Last year, “General Hospital,” for example, told tales of gender identity, cults, #MeToo and Alzheimer’s.

“The stories arise from the characters who are primed to be involved in very contemporary conflicts,
