The Bold and The Beautiful spoilers tease that Matthew Atkinson, B&B’s Thomas Forrester, talked to Soap Opera Digest about Thorsten Kaye’s speech as Ridge Forrester during the wedding of Steffy Forrester (Jacqueline Macinnes Wood) and Dr. John “Finn” Finnegan (Tanner Novlan).
The Bold And The Beautiful Spoilers – The Wedding That Almost Didn’t Happen
Viewers of The Bold and The Beautiful will recall that Steffy and Finn’s wedding was the one that almost didn’t happen for a couple of different reasons, one after the other! The drama of Steffy’s drunken one night stand that produced Hayes Forrester Finnegan (Piper Harriot) caused stress on their relationship but Finn ultimately forgave Steffy, and the suicide message that Thomas Forrester (Matthew Atkinson) received from Vinny Walker (Joe LoCicero) after he died cleared up the baby’s paternity.
Then, as viewers of The Bold and The Beautiful will recall, the long-held secret that Sheila Carter (Kimberlin Brown) is Finn’s birth mother came out during their wedding, and Steffy delayed filing the marriage certificate because of it! But before Sheila blew everything out of the water, Ridge gave an impassioned speech, and Matthew Atkinson tells some of the details behind it, giving kudos to Ridge’s portrayer, Thorsten. Viewers of The Bold and The Beautiful will remember what an emotional scene it was as Ridge’s speech played out on the air.
B&B Spoilers – Matthew Atkinson Talks About Thorsten Kaye Bringing His Own Experience As A Father Into The Scene
Matt talks about Thorsten bringing his own experience as a father into the scene, where viewers of The Bold and The Beautiful will recall there was even a photo shown of Jacqui as a child – of course, representing Steffy as a child. Matt tells Soap Opera Digest that was Thorsten’s idea, although the photo must have come from Jacqui. Viewers of The Bold and The Beautiful will agree with Matt that this special touch made the scene much more real than it would have seemed to viewers otherwise, and even made it more real to those who were playing the parts onscreen!
Matt notes that Thorsten is a father of two daughters in real life, and he feels that Thorsten brought his own experience as a father as well as his heart into this scene. Matt notes that everyone was emotional during this scene as they were filming it – and it made the character of Steffy’s wedding to Finn very special in spite of previous marriage. It was like Finn was her true soulmate and they wanted to recognize that. Matt tells that he and everyone else involved had tears in their eyes because of Thorsten’s soulful portrayal!
The Bold And The Beautiful Spoilers – Steffy’s Long Time Heartache Over Waffling Liam Was Finally At An End
Viewers of The Bold and The Beautiful will recall that when Finn came into Steffy’s life and they finally got married, her long time headache over waffling Liam Spencer (Scott Clifton) was finally at an end! Even the photo of the two of them she had held on to for so many years came down, and that was a sign to longtime viewers of The Bold and The Beautiful that poor Steffy had finally moved on! Liam’s waffling between her and Hope Logan Spencer (Annika Noelle) mirrored her father’s own waffling between Brooke Logan Forrester (Katherine Kelly Lang) and her mother, Taylor Hayes (Krista Allen) so one would think she’d have gotten a clue to kick Liam to the curb long ago, but it took the real Mr. Right in the form of Finn to finally put an end to that painful pattern!
