On screen The Bold and the Beautiful duo Anna Maria Horsford (Vivienne) and Obba Babatunde (Julius) recently teamed up outside of the confines of SoCal. The pair took part in last week's 15th Biennial National Black Theatre Festival in North Carolina. 

 The festival marked 30 years of business, and celebrated the 25th anniversary of Five Guys Named Moe. Babatunde, who first attended the festival during its inaugural year in 1989, told NBC News: 

It’s thrilling to be back in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, also known as Black Theatre Holy Ground,” says Babatunde. “And to open the festival with Five Guys Named Moe is exhilarating and an honor.”
