Will Ridge’s Return Mean Romance For Brooke Or Another Logan on The Bold and the Beautiful? Jillian Bowe December 3, 2013 CBS, News, Soap Opera, The Bold and the Beautiful 17 Comments How will The Bold and the Beautiful's Ridge Forrester (Thorsten Kaye) react to everything that has transpired during his absence, namely former wife Brooke (Katherine Kelly Lang) having played hide-the-sword with Bill (Don Diamont)? Could Brooke's actions cause Ridge to look in her little sister Katie's (Heather Tom) direction? TV Guide Magazine’s Michael Logan spoke to showrunner Brad Bell for the juicy scoop. TV Guide Magazine: Given your love for twisted romance, will you have Ridge fall Katie? It would drive Bill and Brooke crazy! Bell: [Laughs] Well... maybe I will. Anything is possible! Thorsten makes a fantastic Ridge — very different from [predecessor] Ronn Moss. He'll really electrify the show. Bill has been cock-of-the-walk for way too long. He needs a little competition! And that's exactly what he's going to get! We're going to find out that Ridge has gone through something very significant during his time away — something that's really changed him. There's only one Ronn Moss and he was splendid, but now we have a new and very different Ridge and it's exciting to write for him.
