“The Bold and the Beautiful” spoilers and coming and going news recently confirmed that TPTB at the CBS soap are recasting the role of Hope Logan, after Kim Matula announced she was quitting. “Bold and the Beautiful” head writer Bell revealed in an interview that Hope Logan would only be in Italy briefly – and she will remain a central character on the CBS soap, with or without Kim Matula. Rumors have been flying for weeks that Julie Marie Berman or Chrishell Stause (Days of Our Lives) were being considered by CBS to play the part of Hope – but rumor has it that it will actually be GH actress Kristen Alderson that will replace Kim Matula.
“General Hospital” spoilers released on January 10 from Soap Opera Digest confirmed that Kristen Alderson was quitting the ABC soap and her character Kiki Jerome would be exiting. According to casting rumors floating around the internet, the reason Kristen abruptly quit General Hospital is because she has been tapped to play the part of Hope Logan on “Bold and the Beautiful.” One could argue that Kristen Alderson looks nothing like Hope Logan nor Kim Matula, but ironically the actress debuted a new bleach blond hairstyle on social media this month and has had fans buzzing about her shocking transformation and that she may be prepping to take on the role on “Bold and the Beautiful.”
“The Bold and the Beautiful spoilers” and coming and going news confirm that Hope Logan is currently in Italy, but she will be heading back to the canvas in 2015. Hope left in a huff after feuding with her mother-in-law Quinn, having a miscarriage and losing her baby, and then professing her love for Liam Spencer – the brother of her husband Wyatt. If Kristen Alderson does take on the role of Hope Logan, she will have a ton of dramatic storylines waiting for her – which may be exactly why she would switch over to “Bold and the Beautiful,” her storylines on General Hospital have been increasingly scarce as of late.
