Our Star of the Month is The Bold and the Beautiful's Matthew Atkinson! Check it out here ---->>>
November brought a number of standout performances from the likes of The Young and the Restless’ Mark Grossman and General Hospital’s Nancy Lee Grahn. Though when we looked back at the performances there was one actor that rose above the rest to be named our Star of the Month: The Bold and the Beautiful’s Matthew Atkinson!
I think we all remember the collective sigh that came from soap Twitter as soon as the news of the Hope mannequin leaked. While the story has an edge of ridiculousness, Atkinson has been giving us a masterclass in how to perform no matter what the material is. We’ve slowly watched as Thomas’ obsession for Hope transformed into something darker and more troublesome. The voices in his head - acting through the mannequin - went from telling him that Hope wants to be with him to trying to convince him to kill Liam.
We all thought that this was just going to be another "Thomas is crazy and someone has to stop him" plot. However, recently we’ve seen Thomas fighting his inner demons as he struggles with headaches and blurred vision. Brain Tumor? These scenes are where Atkinson has truly shined. You can feel every bit of angst, pain, and confusion that Thomas is dealing with just by his facial expressions. We cannot wait to see what happens next!
The storyline is just hitting its climax and we’re already so impressed. Get this man an Emmy!
