New role.

“The Bold and the Beautiful” has cast Australian actress Ashleigh Brewer in the newly-created role of Ivy Forrester. Ivy is Eric’s (John McCook) niece, daughter of his brother, John Forrester, who has been residing in Sydney. Miss Forrester will come to Los Angeles to work on the Hope For The Future jewelry line and become involved with the younger generation of characters on “B&B.”
