Kyle Lowder has been let go from The Bold and The Beautiful, according to Soap Opera Digest. Lowder portrayed Rick Forrester on the sudser for four years, and his last airdate has not been announced. Here's what Lowder had to say about his separation from B&B:
Brad [Bell, executive producer/head writer] called this morning and said he felt terrible that they haven't been able to generate enough story for the character," reveals the actor. "He felt it was in everybody's best interest that we go in different directions. From my standpoint, it's an amicable situation. Obviously, it's their choice, but at the same time, the story has been slow for over a year-and-a-half and like any professional in any line of work would do, you prepare yourself for the next step. So, it wasn't a surprise that it was going to happen, but it was handled in the most respectful way and I have huge respect for Brad. I had a great four years there and I thank him for the opportunity. And now, onto the next thing.
