Another Bold And The Beautiful Main Male Actor Has Quit The Show, New Details
According to the folks over at soapcentral, we’re about to see yet another main guy leave CBS’ hit soap opera show “The Bold And The Beautiful.” It turns out that actor Pierson Fode (above) who plays Thomas Forrester has decided to step down from the role after portraying it for the past three years!
As usual, Soap Opera Digest got the big interview with him to get a statement about his departure. He said this was one of the hardest decisions that he’s ever had to make. Apparently, he got some other big acting opportunities that just won’t allow him to keep filming ‘The Bold And The Beautiful” at the same time.
He explained to them, “I’ll tell you what. As far as my time goes in Los Angeles, this has been one of the hardest decisions I’ve made. I’ve invested two-and-a-half years of my life into this. You really do create this relationship on set with people, and you get used to seeing them every day. I’m also getting a steady paycheck and I’m getting some notoriety out of it and some different things.
But, the decision that went into it was hard because you want to have your cake and eat it too. You want to be there and I still want to go off and shoot a Marvel movie. I want to still be shooting on “The Bold And The Beautiful” and I want to do a Netflix series. At the end of the day, you can’t do it all. And that was the choice that I had to make.”
Pierson’s character has slowly been written into the background as a result of his busy schedule. Recently, Thomas quit Forrester Creations and even started backing away from his family. He broke things off with Sally as a result of a lie Bill told him about Caroline dying. We’re also hearing that Caroline’s latest storyline could be coming to an end too.
None of the Bold And The Beautiful representatives are currently responding to any requests or comments concerning Pierson Fode’s departure. He joined the show way back in 2015. They say that he’s already filmed his very last episode which is scheduled to air on the Thursday, September 14,2017 episode. So, mark that date down as the last day you’ll see him on the show. Previous actors that have played the Thomas Forrester character are: Adam Gregory, Drew Tyler Bell, and Patrick Dorn.
Currently, there’s no word on if the show will try to replace Pierson and keep the character on the show or if they’ll just send Thomas away for a good long while. I’m guessing the latter as we haven’t seen any casting calls for anyone that resembles his character.
That doesn’t mean they won’t try to bring Thomas back into the picture at some point down the road. It’s highly possible that we’ll see Thomas back in the storyline in the future. But, right now, there doesn’t appear to be any immediate storylines for him after September 14th,2017.
Pierson joins actor Rome Flynn who recently stepped down from playing character Zende Forrester on the popular soap opera. He too quit to pursue some other acting opportunities. It’s also not confirmed if the show will replace Zende’s character. However, the show did put out a casting call for a main male leading role that resembled his description. It read, “22 to 24-year-old black male who will be a “leading man.”
