THE Bold and the Beau­ti­ful star Kather­ine Kelly Lang may have said good­bye to co-star and on-screen lover Ronn Moss but in the real world she just can’t shake him.

Lang says since Moss left the se­ries – his fi­nal episode airs on Aus­tralian tele­vi­sion on Tues­day – the two are al­ways cross­ing pro­fes­sional paths.

Moss made his exit af­ter 25 years, leav­ing Lang and John Mc­Cook as orig­i­nal and the long­est-run­ning cast mem­bers on the se­ries.

In re­cent weeks, Lang and Moss trav­elled sep­a­rately to Italy to ap­pear in a Hol­ly­wood Christ­mas pa­rade.

She has ap­peared on his in­ter­view show Ronn’s Garage.

‘‘We all had din­ner on the last day but I’ve seen him many times since,’’ Lang says.

‘‘We did a com­mer­cial in Italy, judged a TV show there, and yes­ter­day we did a Hol­ly­wood Christ­mas pa­rade and hung out to­gether for two hours be­fore­hand.

‘‘I also did Ronn’s Garage, which will air (in the US) be­fore Christ­mas and to­mor­row we are go­ing to go horse­back rid­ing to add a snip­pet to that show. ‘‘We are friends for life.’’ Moss, 60, an­nounced in Au­gust he was leav­ing The Bold and the Beau­ti­fulto take on new chal­lenges.

Lang re­mains true to the long-run­ning se­ries although she is also branch­ing out.

Last month, she started an on­line cloth­ing store kather­inekel­ly­langkaf­tans.com, which of­fers lim­ited-edi­tion kaf­tans.

She also wants to work on the stage when she is not film­ing the long-run­ning soapie.

‘‘I would like to do a play and like to do stage, and some guest spots on dif­fer­ent shows,’’ Lang says. ‘‘We still get time to do some­thing as we take a week off ev­ery month. No mat­ter how much I love Brooke, I want to play other parts.’’

Lang says the se­ries’ longevity is its abil­ity to re­main rel­e­vant with view­ers who have stuck with it for four decades.

‘‘The show has changed with the times and is keep­ing up with the world and is­sues,’’ she says.

Week­days, 4.30pm, Ten, Ten SC.
