The Bold and the Beautiful is a long-running American soap opera which has aired on CBS Daytime since March 23, 1987, and is the most-watched soap opera worldwide.[1]

The following section comprises former, current and future secondary characters that have appeared on the show.

Former[edit]

Rocco Carner[edit]

Rocco Carner was played by Bryan Genesse from 1987 to 1989.[2] Prior to his exit, Rocco was involved in a love triangle with sisters Katie and Donna Logan, and bought a ring to propose to Donna. In 2009, Genesse returned to the series. Upon his return on March 12, 2009, it was revealed that Rocco stayed in contact with the Forresters.[3]

Kristen Forrester Dominguez[edit]

Kristen Forrester is Stephanie and Eric's daughter. At the show's beginning, she was portrayed by Beauty Queen Teri Ann Linn. People magazine reported the character to be a "rich bitch". Of her casting, Linn said, "This is an opportunity I had to take". Meridith Brown, an editor of Soap Opera Digest, predicted that Linn would be a "breakaway star" and nasty characters like Kristen "are ones that become very popular in daytime."[4] Linn departed in 1990, with additional appearances on 1992 and 1994. Tracy Melchior has played Kristen on and off since 2001.[5] The character resides in Florida, and only comes to Los Angeles for significant events. She last appeared at a 'goodbye party' for her mother Stephanie, who died after losing her battle with cancer in November 2012.

Beth Logan[edit]

Beth Logan is the matriarch of the Logan family, and was a series regular when it began. She was originally portrayed by Judith Baldwin in 1987.[6] After Baldwin left the role, Burnett began playing Beth from 1987, and left the role in 1989. However, in 1991, when Burnett was unable to reprise the role, Marla Adams briefly played Beth. Adams was known for her role as Dina Mergeron on The Young and the Restless; her casting for the part of Beth was announced on November 24, 1990.[7] In 1994 Burnett returned, and had various guest appearances until 2001. Upon her 2008 return, Robin Riker played Beth, who arrived with a "new personality".[8] Riker's portrayal was met with acclaim; Tommy Garrett Canyon News named her "Leading Lady" of the week ending August 29, 2009, along with Susan Flannery (Stephanie Forrester), for their "Epic Battle". Garret said Riker "showed viewers that she is capable of high drama".[9]

As a teenager, Beth fell in love with Eric Forrester (John McCook). However, another women, Stephanie Douglas, manipulated Eric into marrying her instead. Beth then married Stephen Logan had they had four children together, the eldest being Brooke Logan (Katherine Kelly Lang). Briefly, it was speculated that Brooke was the product of Eric and Beth's love affair decades earlier, however, it was confirmed that she wasn't. During her marriage to Stephen, he abandoned her and his children, leaving Beth as the Logan's sole provider.[10] In 1991, Brooke married Eric, which upset Beth, who had remained in love with Eric throughout her marriage and break-up from Stephen.[6]

Beth returns to Los Angeles in 2008 at the request of Nick Marone (Jack Wagner), because he thinks her youngest daughter, Katie, who recently had a heart transplant, needs her. Her family becomes worried about Beth's strange behaviour. Beth eventually reveals to Katie that she has had several mini-strokes and is also in the early stages of dementia. It takes some convincing from her family, but Beth finally agrees to stay in Los Angeles and receive treatment from her granddaughter Dr. Bridget Forrester (Ashley Jones) and Dr. Taylor Hayes (Hunter Tylo). The treatment appears to be working. Stephen and Beth have also hinted at a possible reconciliation. After a long absence Stephen and Beth reappeared for Nick and Bridget's wedding and it was mentioned that they had been in Paris. Beth dies in the Forrester Pool after a fight between her and Stephanie in 2010, devastating the Logans.

Oscar Marone was played by Brian Gaskill from 2003 through 2004. Gaskill was hired after the ABC Daytime soap opera Port Charles was cancelled, where he played Rafe Kovich. In 2003, Gaskill described Oscar as the black sheep of the family, "He's not necessarily a bad guy, but he's not all good, either. He might seem kind of cold sometimes, but I think his heart's in the right place. To be honest I'm not 100 percent sure who he is until I've played him a while. Brad Bell (executive producer) keeps things pretty close. You never know where this guy might end up."[12]

Caitlin Ramirez[edit]

Caitlin Ramirez was played by Kayla Ewell from January 22, 2004[13] through 2005.

Dante Damiano[edit]

Dante Damiano was played by Antonio Sabàto, Jr. from 2005[14] through 2006.[15]

Gabriela Moreno[edit]

Gabriela Moreno is the daughter of Stephanie Forrester's maid, Helen. Shanelle Workman originated the role on March 24, 2005.[16] Gabriela has a green card marriage with Thomas Forrester. Workman was let go of her contract later that year, last appearing on October 27, 2005.[17]

Ann Douglas[edit]

Ann Douglas is the mother of Stephanie Forrester. Betty White originated the role during a ten-day run spanning December 2006 through January 2007, later returning in 2008 and 2009. Stephanie and Ann had been estranged since Stephanie was abused by her father and Ann did nothing to stop it. White described her character's entrance, "Ann has spent 30 years denying any of this (her daughter's abuse) had anything to do with her. She has to face some deep truths. It was quite dramatic, which is a switch for me. The most dramatic work I had done was some 'Ellery Queen.' It was a delightful exercise to dig a little deeper and see where it took me."[18] The child abuse story arc was one of many that won the series critical acclaim for handling social issues.[19] White reprised the role in November 2009 when Ann returns to make amends with her family before she dies. White made television history by leading an all-female cast.[20]

Harry Jackson[edit]

Harry Jackson was played by Ben Hogestyn in 2006. Harry debuted on August 28, 2006. He arrives looking for Nick Marone (Jack Wagner), to confront him about his father's death. In December 2006, Hogestyn was dropped to recurring status.[21]

Christian Ramirez[edit]

Dr. Christian Ramirez is the brother of Hector Ramirez (Lorenzo Lamas) and was played by Mario Lopez in 2006. Upon assuming the role, Lopez stated, "As someone who is part of the Latin community, I am very proud to play a character like Christian Ramirez because he's more than a role; he's a positive role model for people to look up to. He's a good man who wants to do good things. And he's strong. He proved that you can overcome anything to be the person you want to be."[22]

Shane McGrath[edit]

Shane McGrath was originated by Dax Griffin on September 12, 2006.[23] The character is killed off in 2007, originally thought to be shot by Ridge Forrester.[24]

Constantine Parros[edit]

Constantine Parros was played by Constantine Maroulis in 2007, first appearing on March 15.[25] Maroulis was the sixth-place finalist on the fourth season of the reality television series American Idol. Speaking of his casting, Maroulis stated, "I think they wanted to gear the audience a little younger this summer and sort of shake things up a bit."[26] When asked by Entertainment Weekly if his character would show the "staple Constantine stare," he replied, "Definitely. It might have been written into one of the stage directions. The script said, 'Constantine gives her 'the look." I laughed out loud, of course."[27] Maroulis also used the opportunity to promote his upcoming album, Constantine. He performed "Everybody Loves, Everybody Cries" and "A Girl Like You" on the series.[25]

Constantine Parros is a music producer and former international rock star. He becomes infatuated with Phoebe Forrester (Mackenzie Mauzy) and pursues producing her record.[27] In August 2007 he participates in the Boldface Challenge concert. The series conducted an online poll where fans voted between a performance from Constantine and Phoebe, and one from Phoebe and Rick Forrester (then-Kyle Lowder). During the concert, Constantine is joined by Elliott Yamin, third runner up in season five of American Idol, and singer-songwriter Jon McLaughlin. Each sing real-life singles; Yamin performs "Wait For You," McLaughlin performs "Beautiful Disaster" and Maroulis performs "Fading Into You".[28]

Casper Knight[edit]

Brandon Beemer (2009)

Graham Darros[edit]

Graham Darros was played by Justin Baldoni in 2010. Executive producer and headwriter Bradley Bell announced the role in late 2009, describing Graham as, "a well-known fashion photographer who is hired by Steffy to work for Forrester Creations. It soon becomes evident that he has a sinister and mysterious past with another major character." He spoke of Baldoni as "a compelling young actor who will be able to bring forth the intensity that is essential for the character of Graham."[29]

Beverly[edit]

Portrayed by Gina Rodriguez since 2011, Beverly was named for Beverly Hills before being placed in foster care and was a friend of formerly homeless Dayzee Leigh. Stephanie Forrester, who befriended Dayzee on the street and bought the Insomnia coffeehouse for Dayzee to run, was impressed with Beverly's determination to make something of herself and convinced her family to hire Beverly as an intern at Forrester Creations. Hope Logan caught the inexperienced Beverly taking photos of Forrester gowns with her cell phone. Later, when the dresses showed up on Jackie M's runway, Hope and Stephanie accused Beverly of selling their collection to their competitor, prompting Beverly to run away. Stephanie's sister, Pam Douglas, the real thief, felt bad that Beverly was taking the fall for her. Jackie Marone affirmed Beverly's innocence to Stephanie, noting that the intern hadn't worked at Forrester long enough to steal an entire line. Realizing their mistake, Stephanie and Hope tracked Beverly and Dayzee to a bus in Whittier; Stephanie stood in front of it to get it to stop. An angry Beverly dashed into a gated apartment complex. Dayzee explained it was transitional housing for kids who had aged out of the foster care system. Stephanie wore Beverly down by recounting her experience as an abused child, even admitting she'd gotten pregnant and married Eric as a way out of her father's house. Beverly agreed to return to Forrester, then introduced Stephanie and Hope to other residents of the home. After meeting Rick Forrester, Beverly gushed to Dayzee that he was "definitely into" her. Though a jealous Amber Moore threatened Beverly to stay away, Beverly held her own. She later disappeared from the canvas but was presumed to still work at Forrester.

Danielle Spencer is portrayed by Guiding Light alumna Crystal Chappell. Danielle is the wife of Karen Spencer and the adoptive mother of Caroline Spencer.

Danielle arrived from New York with Karen Spencer, who moved to Los Angeles to be closer to her daughter, Caroline Spencer. Caroline started seeing Thomas Forrester and brought him home to meet Karen, who introduced Thomas to Danielle. Thomas asked a lot of questions about Caroline's father, prompting Karen to tell Caroline, Danielle, and their old friend Jarrett Maxwell, a reporter at Spencer Publications, to keep quiet about their "family secret." But Karen finally revealed that Danielle was her partner and a second mother to Caroline. Karen arranged a job interview at Spencer for Danielle, who promised she wouldn't tell Karen's half-brother, Bill Spencer, Jr., about their relationship. Bill was intrigued by Danielle's international exploits as a writer and mistakenly thought Danielle was hitting on him. With Danielle's coaxing, Karen finally came out to Bill, expecting the worst from her brother. However, Bill surprised Karen and accepted Danielle into the family. Later, Danielle and Karen were outraged when Caroline fell from a two-story balcony while arguing with Bill, and supported Katie when she staged an intervention to deal with Bill's drinking. Danielle commented that she had observed Bill relying too heavily on alcohol more than once. Danielle was stunned when Hope Logan, Bill's almost-daughter-in-law, crashed through the window with a golf club during the intervention and exposed Bill's illegal efforts to sabotage Hope's wedding to Bill's son, Liam Spencer. Danielle lent Caroline an ear when Caroline complained that her boyfriend, Rick Forrester, wasn't paying attention to her. Danielle was surprised to hear Caroline, who ran charitable organizations, demeaning the less fortunate, as Rick had taken an interest in down-on-her-luck singer Maya. Danielle was further dismayed when Caroline claimed that Karen and Danielle had spoiled her by raising her to have expensive tastes.
