B&B's Katherine Kelly Lang: Susan Flannery Slapped Me So Hard "I Had to Go to My Chiropractor"

Katherine Kelly Lang

She's played Brooke Logan on The Bold and the Beautiful for more than three decades. Now, Katherine Kelly Lang is reflecting on some of her favorite moments, on and off screen, in Soap Opera Digest

Like most fans, she loved her character's dynamic with mother-in-law/arch-rival Stephanie (Susan Flannery). Lang told SOD that La Logan's relationship with the Forrester matriarch got quite physical:

"She slapped me so hard once that I had to go to my chiropractor to have my neck put back into place but boy, did it look good and make the scene even more intense. In one of my scenes, I slapped her so hard and knocked her off-balance — I guess I couldn’t hold it back any longer after how many times she slapped me or choked me or flipped me over couches or smothered me [laughs] — and she said to everyone on the set and the producers that that would be the last time anyone slapped her, and it was.”

At the same time, Lang learned a lot from Flannery. She added:

"The was kind but tough. She always expected 110 percent from herself and everybody else, too. I was always in awe of how she took command of the scenes and her character. I was so lucky to work with her."
