Thorsten Kaye's first day taking over the role of Ridge Forrester on The Bold and the Beautiful is just days away -- Friday, December 13 will mark his first appearance on the CBS soap.
One might think that since Brooke (Katherine Kelly Lang) and Bill Spencer (Don Diamont) are done -- she chose her sister over her lover -- that she and Ridge might stand a chance. But executive producer/head writer Bradley Bell told TV Guide that when Ridge discovers what Brooke has done to her sis Katie (Heather Tom), he can't believe it -- and he gets caught up between the two women.
"Well... maybe I will," Bell told TV Guide's Michael Logan when asked if Katie and Ridge could be the next supercouple. "Anything is possible! Thorsten makes a fantastic Ridge -- very different from [predecessor] Ronn Moss. He'll really electrify the show. Bill has been cock-of-the-walk for way too long. He needs a little competition! And that's exactly what he's going to get! We're going to find out that Ridge has gone through something very significant during his time away -- something that's really changed him. There's only one Ronn Moss and he was splendid, but now we have a new and very different Ridge and it's exciting to write for him."
