Katherine Kelly Lang on Bold and Beautiful's Brill: "I Was Scared For My Character"
Brooke Logan's brazen antics can sometimes cause her portrayer as much anxiety as they do some of The Bold and the Beautiful's fans! In a recent joint interview with Don Diamont (Bill) for Soap Opera Uncensored—where they were named Sexiest Couple Alive by the electronic publication—Katherine Kelly Lang (Brooke) revealed how nervous she was about her character screwing her baby sister's husband. Here's an excerpt:
Nicely put. What’s been the overall reaction to your pairing? I’ve wanted you guys together for a while.
DD: [Joking] Kelly didn’t want to work with me!
DD: Finally they forced me on her!
KKL: [Joking] He didn’t want to work with me! [Laughs] No, it’s always great to work with Don. He’s polite and sweet. He always has so much to offer with his character, Bill. I love Bill. He’s a great character. But I was scared for my character because I want to protect her. She’s gone through so much already. At some point, she has to learn from her past and stop making the same mistakes she was making before. I was a little concerned about the story. I’ve received some backlash from some fans and things like that… but I just have to make it the best I can and push forward.
DD: Kelly’s mistake is paying attention to what everyone is saying…
Thank the Soap Gods Lang got over her reservations and Brad Bell forged ahead with his steamy, pot boiler of a storyline. Brill's scorching-hot affair is one of the most provocative stories in soaps! For more of Lang and Diamont's chat, go to Soap Opera Uncensored.
