    Happy 27th Anniversary The Bold And The Beautiful.

    Friday, March 21 2014


    B&B cast 1987 (CBS)
    Celebration time.

    As "B&B" celebrates 27 years on the air (the daytime drama debuted on March 23, 1987), Soaps.com looks back with some interesting trivia from the CBS soap.

    Shades of grey
    When the show kicked off in 1987, John McCook (Eric) had to dye his hair grey to look older than Ronn Moss (then Ridge) because he was playing his father, but was actually only 7 years older.

    International identity.
    "The Bold and The Beautiful" is hugely popular in Italy where the show is known as "Beautiful."

    Name game.
    Then-writer Maria Arena Bell named fashionista Sally Spectra's daughter 'Macy' after the popular department stores.

    Beautiful homes.
    The Forrester mansion as seen on TV was modeled after the real-life home of show creators Lee Phillip Bell and the late Bill Bell. Brooke Logan's house is actually the home of headwriter and executive producer Bradley Bell.

    Daily updates.
    Soaps.com began recapping "The Bold and the Beautiful" on Monday August 7, 2006 when Brooke fired Donna as spokesperson for her line, Taylor took a leave of absence, Stephanie made amends with Taylor, and Ridge kissed Donna! Check out the B&B Recap: Brooke’s Bedroom Too Hot.

    Wow I didn't know that Erick was only 7 years older than Ron Moss. I thought Erick was about in his 70's now but extermly handsome so he is proably in his early 60's now . If Brooke is in her 50's now , I really don't even know how old these actors are but I've seen them age in the past few years . I know that Taylor and Brooke are about my age though .

    Suzann, I think the last report I saw on Ronn Moss put him at about 62 which surprised me

    Suzann, You can always go to Google, type in the actor/ actresses name you are looking up and it will give you their age, birth, and everything. Bold and Beautiful is great , John Mc Cook] Eric also played Lance Prentiss over on Young and Restless.
