The Bold and the beautiful fans are still reeling from cast spoilers confirming that Kim Matula was exiting the CBS soap. When the shocking news originally broke, TPTB at Bold and the Beautiful announced that they would not be recasting the role – and the character of Hope Logan would be exiting and written out of the storyline. B&B fans have been racking their brains trying to determine how Hope would be written out of the story, if she would be killed off, or just head to Europe like every other character that is off the canvas. Everyone wondered what would happen to Wyatt’s unborn son or daughter that Hope is currently pregnant with.
Well, we can all stop wondering. Bold and the Beautiful spoilers reveal that the writers and TPTB have had a change of heart and they will be recasting the part of Hope Logan and replacing Kim Matula. In the latest edition of Soap Opera Digest, Bold’s head-writer and executive producer Bradley Bell revealed that the character of Hope Logan would not be going anywhere. Bell teased, “Hope Logan is a critical and central character to the show. We’re losing Kim Matula, who is a brilliant actress, and I am hoping at some point she will return in the role – but the role will continue.”
So far no Bold and the Beautiful spoilers have been leaked as to what actress will replace Kim Matula, or whether or not Bradley Bell has even found a replacement yet. Kim Matula’s last air date is scheduled for this coming Friday, December 12, so either the news will break any day now, or perhaps the show has landed a big name actress and is trying to keep it hush hush so that fans will be surprised.
The fact that the character of Hope Logan will remain on the canvas really changes everything, especially since Jacqueline MaInnes Wood is reprising the role of Steffy Forrester. Do you think Steffy and Hope will wind up battling over Liam Spencer again? What actress do you think would be a good replacement for Kim Matula?
