KIM SAYS GOODBYE
Kim chose not to renew her contract with Bold at the end of 2014. On her last day of filming, on 5 November 2014, she posted on her Instagram account: “I can officially confirm that I filmed my last scenes at The Bold And The Beautiful. For now. It was a day full of love and laughter and reminiscing about the past five years. I made the incredibly difficult decision not to re-sign my contract so that I could spread my wings as an actor and see what this big beautiful world has to offer. But I can never put into words just how amazing and inspiring this show has been. I do not see this as a ‘goodbye’ but more of a ‘see you later’.” Kim has since returned for a couple of appearances as Hope. She appears as herself during Bold’s special 7 000th episode documentary special episode around Tuesday 2 February. And after that, Hope will be back again for two episodes in early April 2016. Bold is considering recasting the role if they ever decide to bring Hope back and Kim’s unwilling to return.
