Daytime US soap The Bold and The Beautiful is headed back to Australia to film episodes for its 30 year anniversary, 9 years after it previously filmed here.
Cast members coming in February include Scott Clifton (Liam), Don Diamont (Bill), Thorsten Kaye (Ridge), Katherine Kelly Lang (Brooke), John McCook (Eric), Rena Sofer (Quinn), Jacqueline MacInnes Wood (Steffy) and ex-Neighbours star Ashleigh Brewer (Ivy).
Executive Producer and Head Writer Bradley Bell said “This will be an epic celebration for our fans around the world. We are preparing to film the most glamorous location shoot in soap opera history. Collaborating with Qantas, Network Ten and CBS, viewers will witness romance, high style, jaw-dropping twists, harrowing stunts and major cliffhangers, all hallmarks of The Bold and The Beautiful.”
Network Ten Chief Content Officer, Beverley McGarvey, said: “We are thrilled to be welcoming some of the cast and crew from The Bold and The Beautiful to Australia. In a year when the show is celebrating 30 years on television, it is wonderful that they will film in some of Australia’s most iconic locations, showcasing our beautiful country to the world.”
In 2015, Network Ten signed a historic lifetime programming deal for the long-running soap to remain exclusively on TEN for the entire run of the series.
Australian-filmed episodes will screen on TEN in May.
Angela Bishop will host a Q&A with cast members at Parramatta Riverside Theatre on Sunday February 12.
