News for the week of 21-Oct-2013

by Carol Banks Weber

Thorsten Kaye’s (Zach) gonna take a shot at playing one of B&B’s most iconic characters, Ridge Forrester. He takes over for Ronn Moss starting December 13. EP Bradley Bell’s orders. Nobody was more shocked than Kaye to find out the mystery role was Ridge. But what about AMC? Isn’t Prospect Park’s soap supposed to start filming again soon? Kaye doesn’t know. In the October 15th interview with TV Guide’s Michael Logan, Kaye sounded as lost as the fans about the situation. He didn’t come out and say AMC was dead in the water, though. He just said he was taking the B&B gig, and who could blame him?

“There are a lot of talented and caring people over there [at AMC] and I wish them all luck. And I certainly hope that my leaving will not affect the show in some bad way,” Kaye explained. “There is just so much uncertainty in this business, especially in what we've been trying to do with AMC. I do believe it's going to work out for them, but I gotta be doing something. It's so different out there for an aging actor than it is for the 20-year-olds. When you're young you can take your chances, you can live on somebody's couch and survive on Doritos, but there comes a point where you have to say, ‘What's best for my family?’”
