Performer of the Week
Krista Allen has never turned in a bad performance as Dr. Taylor Hayes on The Bold and the Beautiful but this week she raised the already high bar she had previously set. Taylor finally having to confront her attempted murder of Bill (Don Diamont) years before has been a long time coming but the payoff was more than worth the wait! Her pain was palpable as she tried to explain why she did what she did and walked through it step by step, reliving every moment leading up to that fateful act that is still causing repercussions for her family. Allen was agonizingly beautiful in her portrayal of Taylor as she tried to make sense of it all in her own head while struggling to convince herself that she isn’t evil like Shelia (Kimberlin Brown). Taylor refused to let herself off the hook and refused to let anyone else excuse her either. She owned every action and made us believe she was truly sorry for what she had done and all of that was due to Allen’s brilliant portrayal. All week Allen went from desperate to defiant, from broken to determined, seamlessly, showing us every emotion Taylor was experiencing without being over the top. One of the most amazing things about this performance is that Allen wasn’t the actress in the role when the shooting took place, so she had no previous scenes to pull that emotion from. Krista has repeatedly shown us that she is the perfect person to be playing Dr. Taylor Hayes and this week she reinforced it even more. Congrats on being named Performer of the Week, Krista! You more than earned it!
