The Bold and the Beautiful (B&B) spoilers reveal that Courtney Hope (Sally Spectra) is speaking out about her exit and the wild story twist that ultimately took Sally off canvas. In an interview with TV Insider, Hope explained that the plan was always for Sally to leave. Sally just left in a different way than she originally expected.
B&B fans know Sally initially seemed to have a genuine terminal illness. According to Hope, Sally was indeed supposed to be killed off – at least that’s what she was told. “As far as I knew, she was dying,” Hope said. “People were going to gather around her.”
Hope admitted they hadn’t worked out all the details of the ending, but Sally’s death definitely seemed to be the goal. However, The Bold and the Beautiful eventually made the decision to shift gears. It was a choice that caught Hope off guard and forced her to change how she played the character.
“Somewhere along the way, they changed their mind,” Hope said. “It became a lie.” Based on Hope’s comments, she actually seemed disappointed with how things played out instead.
Although Hope suggested she understood the new plan, she was “looking forward to finding that light” in Sally’s darkness. It would’ve been a chance for Sally to show her strength.
Once Hope learned Sally would be faking her terminal illness instead, she had to change her mentality and focus on a different angle. Of course, Hope still gave the role her all!
She talked about pouring her heart into this exit arc and trying to help people understand Sally. Hope was pleased by the passionate fan response and appreciates all the kind words she’s received.
It’s interesting that The Bold and the Beautiful chose to pivot away from killing Sally off. Hope didn’t share the show’s reasons and doesn’t seem to even know what they are.
It’s possible that B&B decided it’d be a waste to permanently get rid of Sally. This exit certainly wasn’t ideal, but at least Sally lived to tell the tale and could potentially return down the road.
Hope suggested that in this industry, change is something you can count on! The B&B star suggested that you “never know ever,” so she’s hopeful that fans will see Sally again someday. In the meantime, we’ll give you updates on all the latest news and hot scoops.
The Bold and the Beautiful spoilers say the show must go on, so viewers can look forward to some other storylines heating up in the weeks ahead.
