Ronn Moss has provided a statement about his decision to leave the role of Ridge Forrester on The Bold and the Beautiful, after 24 years. Here's what the actor relayed to his fans via Facebook:
I want to make sure, without any doubt, that you guys all know how much I love you. Your support during this time and hopefully beyond is everything. I can't say anything yet, but soon will explain. Hang in there with me, We have a wonderful new journey ahead of us.
Try and not be sad, angry, disappointed.. It's been a great run and all good things end eventually. As this door closes, others are opening.
I want you all to come with me through these new doors of opportunities and experience how cool it's going to be. Have faith, be strong, Know I'm eternally yours.
While a lot of people, present blogger included, have poked fun at Moss' acting style of the years, there's no denying how immensely popular he is as Ridge — especially with B&B's international audience. The man has to have a bodyguard when he visits some European countries! I sincerely hope losing him doesn't prove too much of a blow to the serial.
