Thomas Forrester (Matthew Atkinson) has lied, cheated, abused his son emotionally, and even committed murder. Even if other people seem to shun him, there’s one person who’s taking his side, regardless, and that’s his father Ridge. Even if others think Thomas is a hopeless case, Ridge still believes there’s something good in his son. Kaye has broken his silence and explained why his character continues to side with his son.
Kaye said his alter ego believes that he deserves an imperfect son. It seems like there’ll never be a last straw when it comes to Thomas and what he’s capable of doing. Will there ever be a time when he’ll decide to turn on his son?

“That’s an interesting question, and I don’t know the answer. You can’t escape your kid at the end of the day, and Ridge doesn’t want to. That love has to be unconditional. It’s what you sign up for as a parent,” he said.
The strong compassion he feels for his son has driven a wedge between him and Brooke Logan Forrester (Katherine Kelly Lang). Despite his marriage being on the rocks, his character strongly believes that he owes his kids, which makes him a bit blind to the things that are happening in front of him.
