Days before the on-air reveal that Bold & Beautiful supervillain Sheila Carter is Finn’s mother, the news is out. First Kimberlin Brown appeared on Entertainment Tonight, which also ran clips of her nefarious character introducing herself to her son. Then she was interviewed by Soap Opera Digest.

“When I found out that Finn was Sheila’s son, I was excited — I mean, terribly excited,” Brown told the magazine. “Especially because all the years that Sheila has been on the show, and I know she has other children, I’m finally going to get to act with one of them for more than just a little while.”

What’s more, Finn’s marriage to Steffy ties Sheila to ex-husband Eric and his family — whether they like it or not. Though, to hear Brown tell it, the antagonist, who got her start on The Young and the Restless stealing both Lauren’s husband and her baby, will be on her best behavior. “I really thought she had changed the last time she was there. She was really trying to be a better person,” she said. “There’s no doubt about that, and I don’t think that that has changed.

“But… when you have certain elements in life that refuse to acknowledge that betterment, you just hope you don’t slip back into some of your old ways,” she continued. “I guess it’s the way I have always signed my photographs: ‘Get ready, because the best is yet to come!’”
