B&B Spoilers: Adrienne Frantz on ‘B&B’
It was in 2001 that Adrienne was hired to play the role of Amber Moore on “The Bold and the Beautiful,” a young and struggling “have not” girl who soon became popular with fans. In the soap, Amber takes an interest in Rick (Jacob Young), which leads to Brooke (Katherine Kelly Lang) keeping a careful eye on her.
Frantz became even more popular with “The Bold and the Beautiful” fans (and likely Brooke too) when her character offered a kidney to Rick when he desperately needed one. Amber also became close friends with Stephanie (Susan Flannery), saving her from an attack by Sheila (Kimberlin Brown).
Adrienne received a Daytime Emmy in the Outstanding Younger Actress category for her role as Amber. She left “The Bold and the Beautiful” in 2005 to focus on her music career. We offer our sincere condolences to Adrienne and the Russo family.
