Actor Pierson Fode is returning to The Bold and the Beautiful for a short-term story arc as Thomas Forrester. Fode left B&B six months ago to pursue other acting opportunities, but explained to Soap Opera Digest, “This has been a fun story to come back for. When Brad [Bell, executive producer/head writer] pitched it to me, I was super-excited about it!”

Fode’s latest project outside of acting has been involvement with an app called ‘8secondz’, where users compete in an acting challenge for the opportunity to win one of two 30-minute mentoring sessions with the actor.

Pierson Fode will first be seen on “B&B” as Thomas on Friday March 9.
