The 30th anniversary of CBS' The Bold and the Beautiful is just around the corner - on March 23, 2017 B&B will celebrate it's 30th anniversary of being on the air. With an ensemble cast, B&B remains the most-watched soap in the world. Its cast is headed by its longest-serving cast members; John McCook [Eric Forrester] and Katherine Kelly Lang [Brooke Logan].
In 1987, Lang was offered the role of blue-collar Brooke Logan, and has been an integral part of the show ever since. Throughout the years, her love affair with Ridge Forrester [Then Ronn Moss and Now Thorsten Kaye] has been a key story arc for the CBS daytime sudser for over 20 years. The love triangle involving Brooke, Ridge and Taylor [Hunter Tylo] aired for a decade. Lang's Brooke Logan has been a fan favorite; one of the most-talked about soap characters of all time. Known for always needing and wanting a man, Brooke became a household name and the regular topic of conversation for B&B viewers. Lang's awesome portrayal of the role got her a number of Daytime Emmy nominations. We definitely look forward to many more years to come!
John McCook, has played the role of Eric Forrester since 1987. As the patriarch of the family, Eric has been tied into many front burner storylines; fashion wise, romantically and more. His long running relationship with Stephanie Forrester [ex-Susan Flannery] has been the topic of conversation for many years even to this day. Since Stephanie's death, Eric has moved on with Quinn [Rena Sofer] and remains front and center of the CBS Daytime drama. McCook's outstanding portrayal of the role also landed him a number of Daytime Emmy nominations. We are not tired yet and look forward to many, many,many more years to come!
