Let no­body tell me­dia mogul “Dol­lar” Bill Spencer (Don Di­a­mont) that you shouldn’t mix busi­ness and plea­sure. This is the man who had an in- of­fice sex nest built so that he could grab a quickie over lunch. He is so busy plan­ning his wed­ding to Brooke (Kather­ine Kelly Lang) that in­stead of fly­ing out to Monte Carlo for the an­nual Spencer Sum­mit, he an­nounces on Wed­nes­day 9 August that he’s send­ing his sons Liam (Scott Clifton) and Wy­att (Darin Brooks) along with Wy­att’s wife St­effy (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) – the woman they’re fight­ing over – to the Sum­mit by them­selves. Get ready for high glam­our and high drama!


The Spencers aren’t alone tak­ing a gam­ble in Monte Carlo. Eric For­rester (John McCook) has cho­sen the Sum­mit to an­nounce his re­turn as CEO of For­rester Fash­ions. And his se­cret mistress Quinn (Rena Sofer) – the woman who kid­napped and raped Liam and kept him pris­oner while he had am­ne­sia in May 2017 so that her son Wy­att could se­duce Liam’s fi­ancée St­effy and marry her – won’t be far be­hind. “The Sum­mit will rock the Spencers and For­resters to their core. And who knows? There may soon be a new por­trait hang­ing above the For­rester fire­place,” hints su­per­vis­ing pro­ducer Casey Kasprzyk.


Be­sides try­ing to snatch St­effy back from his brother, Liam will be tak­ing ad­van­tage of the Sum­mit to cam­paign for an­other cause: so­lar power and ef­fi­cient en­ergy use. Wy­att tells St­effy on Thurs­day 10 August, “I’d like to speak to Prince Al­bert about his foun­da­tion, ’cause the guy is re­ally big on the en­vi­ron­ment and en­cour­ag­ing sus­tain­able devel­op­ment.” And since Bold was in town for 56th An­nual Monte Carlo TV Fes­ti­val, Liam, Wy­att and St­effy re­ally did meet Al­bert. “The Prince’s palace is amaz­ing. I think I called him ‘dude’. I wasn’t meant to but did,” says Darin.


The cun­ning Bold team took ad­van­tage of the Fes­ti­val to cre­ate their Spencer Sum­mit, which meant sim­ply plac­ing their pre-pre­pared Spencer ma­te­rial to make it seem as if the Spencers were in charge of the red- car­pet event. When the cast walked the red car­pet for the real-life Fes­ti­val com­plete with crowds want­ing self­ies, the crew was shoot­ing footage of the two fam­i­lies rolling up to the Spencer Sum­mit, com­plete with fake in­ter­views. “That was cool guer­rilla film mak­ing,” says John McCook.


The Monte Carlo ac­tion that will fill screens for seven episodes had to be squeezed into three pro­duc­tion days, which ended at 16:00 sharp to al­low the cast to pre­pare for the evenings’ black-tie events. “I loved say­ing, ‘Wrap by 4pm for cock­tails with the Prince at the palace,” jokes Casey. It took the LA team over a month to pre­pare for the three days but they couldn’t plan for ev­ery­thing. In one scene, St­effy was in a bikini on Lar­votto Beach in the rain. Darin and Jacqueline saved the scene by im­pro­vis­ing clever di­a­logue. And the pro­duc­tion team even had to teach the ex­tra they cast as the chauf­feur how to drive! But pro­duc­tion man­aged to roll with the un­ex­pected a lot eas­ier than Liam and St­effy do when they re­alise that Quinn is in Monte Carlo…

Quinn hides her iden­tity in Monte Carlo us­ing a gi­ant black straw hat that Rena nick­named “Pa­tri­cia”. Eric and Quinn are upto no good in Monte Carlo too. INCOGNITO

St­effy and Wy­att are clue­less that Liam is out to break them up.
