Leaving Bold & Beautiful, Rena Sofer Gives ‘Queric’ Fans a Peek at Her Parting Gift to the Leading Man Who’s ‘Like a Glass of Champagne’
“So, you want to see it?”
Monday, August 29, will mark the last day The Bold and the Beautiful viewers will get to see Rena Sofer as Quinn. Earlier this month, the actress announced that she had decided to leave the CBS soap after her contract was up but before she said goodbye, Sofer wanted to give fans a peek at the gift she created for her co-star John McCook (Eric).
“As I am preparing to leave Bold & Beautiful after nine years, I really wanted to kind of marry this new thing that I love doing, ceramics, and give my love in that way to some of the people that have meant the most to me on the show,” she shared via an Instagram video. Though she hadn’t made a recording of all of the gifts, she want to show everyone what she made for McCook. “The reason I wanted to show it to you is because it really expresses to me, and to everyone that I know who know him, his personality,” she explained then asked, “So, you want to see it?”
Sofer then displayed a beautiful blue and white jar accented with a marble on top of the lid. However, what she loved most about the jar is that she did it in a bubble glaze in his favorite color blue.
“John McCook is like a glass of champagne,” she stated. “He’s bubbly and fun and exciting and makes you giggly and makes you laugh.” She then listed all of the reasons why people bring out champagne… Some do so when they want to celebrate, others bring it out to express love and many do as well simply when they are excited. “Everything about John McCook is all of those things,” she shared.
Thinking back on what an honor it was to work with McCook and to be his wife on the soap, Sofer admitted, “I almost wish I got to finish out my time on The Bold and the Beautiful being Mrs. Eric Forrester.” However, she was very happy with the way it turned out because she thinks Lawrence Saint-Victor (Carter) is “pretty special” but said, “This is about John.”
Though Sofer didn’t think she would see McCook on her last day, since he wasn’t scheduled to work, she wanted him and all of the “Queric” fans to know, “I’ve been an incredibly fortunate human being in my life and an incredibly fortunate actress. One of the great gifts we get as actresses is the people we get to work with… some great, some not-so great, but John McCook… He’s one of the greatest.”
She finished up the video by thanking her co-star for being one of the best acting partners she could ever have hoped for then stated, “Thank you, John,” as she blew him a kiss goodbye.
We sure will miss seeing Sofer on the CBS soap but would love to see her return to General Hospital as Lois Cerullo.
For now, join us as we look back on Quinn’s memorable moments throughout the years in our photo gallery below.
<p>Quinn Fuller came to town as Wyatt’s mother. Wyatt thought his father was dead but later learned <em>that</em> was a lie. Quinn revealed that Bill Spencer Jr. was Wyatt’s father. This came as a huge shock to both men, who had their share of ups and downs before Wyatt finally took the last name Spencer.</p>
<p>Quinn’s claim to fame is her talent for designing and forging stunning jewelry. It turns out she was the designer behind Bill’s infamous sword necklace! Initially, she ran her business out of a warehouse, but she was later hired by Hope Logan, and her creations were used in Forrester’s Hope for the Future line. </p>
<p>Quinn was clearly unhinged in her early days in Los Angeles and wouldn’t stand for Liam getting in the way of the one thing her son, Wyatt, wanted to badly — Hope Logan. Quinn even tried to kill him with a sword</p>
<p>Quinn managed to get Bill into bed and the sex session was pretty off the wall — or up <em>against</em> the wall if we’re being accurate. Quinn even used Bill’s sword necklace to cut into his skin during the romp. </p>
<p>Deacon and Quinn found they were birds of a feather and set up a love nest in the apartment above her warehouse. Known for being candid about their penchanct for kinky sex they made quite the pair. They even got married when Wyatt eventually bestowed his blessing on the unlikely union!</p>
<p>When Hope and Wyatt did get together, and were set to have a baby, the blonde wanted nothing to do with her husband’s crazy mother. Quinn upset Hope by crashing her baby shower, their argument escalated, and Hope fell down a flight of stairs trying to get away from her, which resulted in the loss of her baby.</p>
<p>Quinn found Liam after he’d been hit by a car in the Forrester Creations parking lot and spirited him away to a cabin. Liam, who’d suffered amnesia, began to fall for Quinn, who told him that they were a married couple named Adam and Eve. Part of her angle for holding him captive was so Wyatt could have a shot with Steffy.</p>
<p>When Deacon discovered Quinn holding Liam in the cabin, she feared he’d expose her. In order to keep him quiet — for good — she pushed him off of a cliff. Presuming Deacon was dead, she went about her diabolical business, but he later turned up alive — and rather menacingly covered in seaweed. Eventually, Wyatt learned that his mother had been keeping his half-brother captive and freed hi.</p>
<p>Quinn took a flight to Monte Carlo to meet Eric and ended up stuck between a husband and wife who would have driven her insane if she wasn’t already nuts. When the plane experienced turbulence, the wife threw up in Quinn’s lap.</p>
<p>Quinn tracked down the object of her heart’s desire in Monte Carlo and she and Eric shared a kiss. A very unhappy Steffy spied the kiss, chased Quinn, and ended up slapping her in public as she warned the woman to stay away from her grandfather.</p>
<p>Quinn and Eric were married at the Forrester mansion in September 2016. Perez Hilton, the celebrity blogger, guest-starred as the reverend who officiated the ceremony with Stephanie’s portrait hanging in the background. Eric’s family boycotted the wedding, with the exception of Ivy Forrester, as they disapproved of the patriarch marrying the woman with such a proven dark side.</p>
<p>It always bothered Quinn to have Stephanie Forrester’s portrait hanging at the mansion. She was ecstatic when Eric replaced it with a portrait of her. Quinn later tangled with Stephanie’s sister Pam, who wanted to marry Charlie in the mansion and put her late sibling’s picture back on the wall. Quinn refused to allow it.</p>
<p>When the dastardly Sheila Carter returned to Los Angeles looking to get back together with her ex — Quinn’s husband, Eric — the battle of the wives was on. Quinn and Sheila had several physical altercations before Sheila uncharacteristically backed off and disappeared again.</p>
<p>Quinn and Ridge bonded after she was shot on the Forrester balcony. She even professed her love after he rescued her and they shared a kiss – all while married to his father, Eric. It never went beyond smooching, but when Brooke found out about their closeness she put an end to it.</p>
<p>Quinn was so chuffed when Shauna, her best friend from Las Vegas came to town that she tried to gift her with a Forrester husband — Brooke’s! The duo also had cause to celebrate when their offspring, Wyatt and Flo, reconnected and got engaged.</p>
<p>Quinn helped Brooke off the wagon <em>and</em> slapped her to the floor after the blonde hit Shauna during a confrontation over Ridge. Brooke wound up keeping her man, but there’s no love lost between her and Quinn. She’s tried numerous times to get Eric to kick the brunette to the curb!</p>
<p>When Quinn showed up at Carter’s loft and opened up to him about how lonely she was feeling in her marriage to Eric, and <em>he</em> shared his heartbreak after being betrayed by Zoe, the pair connected in a most unexpected way. And <em>then</em> they connected in a very <em>expected</em> way given their absolutely undeniable chemistry. The pair parted ways when Quinn sorted out her marriage, but feelings remained.</p>
<p>Quinn and Eric’s marriage came to a not-so-bitter end after she caught him canoodling with Donna, and he told her he knew she was still in love with Carter. Eric urged Quinn to go stop Carter’s wedding to Paris before it was too late and the pair parted ways after she handed back her ring (but not the diamond one!).</p>
<p>Quinn made it to the church, er, restaurant on time and stopped Carter from marrying Paris at Il Giardino. Afterward, the lovers joyfully reunited at his loft where they had first fallen in love and rejoiced in being together again at last.</p>
