Kim Matula posted a note about her departure from “B&B” on her Instagram feed:
What can I say about today? I can officially confirm that I filmed my last scenes at The Bold and The Beautiful. For now. ?. It was a day full of love and laughter and reminiscing about the past 5 years. I made the incredibly difficult decision not to resign my contract so that I could spread my wings as an actor and see what this big beautiful world has to offer. But I can never put into words just how amazing and inspiring this show has been. What a huge part of my life. I do not see this as a "goodbye" but more of a "see you later." Thank you for giving me an unforgettable 5 years as Hope Logan and thank you to every single viewer who sat side by side with me on this journey. Cheers to the next adventure!!
