‘Ridge Forrester’ is set to exit The Bold and the Beautiful with actor Ronn Moss ending a 25 year run on the US soap.
Entertainment Weekly reports Moss elected not to renew his contract over salary issues.
Production company Bell Phillip Television confirmed the exit. “Ronn has spent an amazing 25 years with B&B,” a rep for Bell Phillip said in a statement. “We will always consider him family, and we wish him only the best in all of his future endeavors.”
Moss has played fashion magnate Ridge Forrester since the show’s 1987 inception, and remains one of four original actors still on the show, including Susan Flannery as ‘Stephanie Forrester’, John McCook as ‘Eric Forrester’, and Katherine Kelly Lang as ‘Brooke Logan.’
His last episode will air in the US in September.
