Ric F. asks: As a long time fan of Susan Flannery, I am curious as to why she suddenly has departed the soap at a critical juncture. Is the actress ill? On vacation? It just seems strange that she “went missing” at a time that would have pushed her even further into the on-going storyline of Brooke’s rape… she has been MIA going on 3 weeks now… I hope she is coming back soon.
Soaps.com: Although Susan Flannery recently took some time off for feeling a bit ‘under the weather,’ and then took a vacation, shortly thereafter, our sources over at The Bold and the Beautiful have informed us that she’ll back in the studio taping very soon and will be back on the scene on October 19, 2007! Thanks for your concern! The actress really appreciates all of her fans!

Sandra N. asks: Who plays the part of young Shawn Brady in Ireland? He looks so much like Grandpa Shawn Brady. I’m wondering if it’s the actor’s grandson.
Soaps.com: We asked our sources at the show and found out that Tanner Maguire plays the part of young Shawn Brady. He plays it well, we think! Although we too can see the resemblance, no, the little tyke is not related to Frank Parker (Shawn Brady).
Kristine W. asks: What happened to Robin and Patrick? Did they split up and when? I missed that one.

Frances O. asks: I have watched GL for the longest time, and I was wondering what has happened to the character “Nola”. She was a very perky person and just wanted to know where is she now. Thank you
