has learned that actress Robin Riker will be joining The Bold and the Beautiful cast, playing the part of Beth Logan.

Riker brings with her a long resume of acting experience that spans as far back as the mid-70s, and has appeared on such shows as M*A*S*H, Malcolm in the Middle, and Boston Legal. In 2000, she played the role of Maureen Lockhart for several episodes of Days of Our Lives.

Riker will be playing Elizabeth “Beth” Henderson Logan, the long-estranged Logan matriarch and mother of Brooke, Donna , Katie and the recently-passed Storm Logan. Although Beth was married to Stephen Logan, it’s her love of Eric Forrester that she’s best known for. Will a re-appearance of Beth cause problems for Donna and Eric?

Riker’s appearance on The Bold and The Beautiful is expected to take place Wednesday, June 18! Stay tuned!
