Congrats to Naomi Matsuda (Li, B&B) who was selected as our performer of the week! Click here to learn more--->>
On this past week of The Bold and the Beautiful, it was revealed that Li Finnegan (Naomi Matsuda) has been hiding Finn (Tanner Novlan) away as he recovers in a coma! Matsuda mastered moving monologues as the audience learns how Li kept Finn hidden and how she hasn’t lost hope that Finn will wake from his coma. Matsuda also nailed Li’s glaring anger as she spotted Liam (Scott Clifton) and Steffy (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) in an embrace. Matsuda was convincing as a grieving mother who isn’t ready to let go of her son as Steffy pleads to know what happened to Finn’s ashes and that she wants to plan a memorial for Finn. While Steffy perceives as Li not ready to let go of a presumed dead Finn, the audience also sees Li not wanting to give up hope that her son will wake up and reclaim his life. Li also learned that Sheila (Kimberlin Brown) was responsible for the shooting and fans can’t wait to see Matsuda and Brown go toe to toe again as both ladies always knock their scenes out of the park! Bravo Matsuda!
