Sally Spec­tras and the re­turn!

Soap World - - THE GOSS! -

Fol­low­ing the death of DAR­LENE CON­LEY 10 years ago, fans of The Bold and the Beau­ti­ful thought they had seen the last of her char­ac­ter, the wildly pop­u­lar fash­ion diva Sally Spec­tra, and her close fam­ily and as­so­ci­ates, who also faded away.

How­ever, in a stun­ning twist, B&B is re­viv­ing the Spec­tra fam­ily and its rag-tag busi­ness Spec­tra Fash­ions with a whole new gen­er­a­tion of never-be­fore-seen-or-heard Spec­tras.

For­mer Days of Our Lives star PATRIKA DARBO ( Nancy) is head­ing up the new branch of the clan as Shirley Spec­tra, Sally’s sis­ter. She’ll be joined by her grand­daugh­ter and sis­ter’s name­sake, Sally, who’ll be played by COURT­NEY HOPE, as well as ALEX WYSE as Saul, the grand­son of the orig­i­nal Sally’s close friend and col­league Saul Fein­berg, and DANUBE HERMOSILLO, who’ll play Dar­lita, a char­ac­ter mod­elled af­ter Sally’s now-de­ceased sec­re­tary Darla. To com­plete the Spec­tra line-up, Mick Cain is repris­ing his role of CJ Gar­ri­son, Sally’s son.

Herald­ing the ar­rival of the new Spec­tra fam­ily, ex­ec­u­tive pro­ducer BRADLEY BELL says he de­cided to re­vive the Spec­tras be­cause he wanted to “play into our great his­tory” ahead of the soap’s 30th an­niver­sary in March.

He de­scribes the Spec­tra gang as “tough, de­ter­mined, and broke” as well as the “wine in a box” com­pared to the For­resters’ “cham­pagne”. Bell also pre­views that the Spec­tras are des­per­ate to re­vive Spec­tra Fash­ions af­ter sav­ing the busi­ness’s old head­quar­ters from Bill Spencer’s wreck­ing ball so Sally can ful­fil her dreams of be­ing a de­signer. The new Spec­tra fam­ily will be seen on Aus­tralian screens from April.

The Spec­tra Fash­ions crew is back to take on the For­resters. (Clock­wise from left) Shirley (Patrika Darbo), Dar­lita (Danube Hermosillo), Saul (Alex Wyse), and Sally (Court­ney Hope).
