The In Depth Story: Both of the ac­tors left of their own ac­cord to ex­plore other ca­reer op­por­tu­ni­ties. Flynn de­buted in June 2015 as Kris­ten and Tony’s son, while Fodé joined the cast the fol­low­ing month as Ridge and Tay­lor’s son. As for the char­ac­ters’ places on the can­vas, B&B ap­pears to be in the process of find­ing Flynn’s re­place­ment, hav­ing is­sued a cast­ing no­tice for a char­ac­ter match­ing Zende’s de­scrip­tion. There was also a cast­ing call is­sued for a younger­manbe at who least lead­ing should5’10” (Fodé is 6’2”), but the 20-year-old age of the char­ac­ter — re­ferred to as Chase — is a few years younger than Thomas. Nonethe­less, Fodé in­di­cated in a farewell mes­sage posted on so­cial me­dia that a re­cast was a pos­si­bil­ity. “At some point, I will likely have to pass the ba­ton of Thomas to an­other hideous-look­ing guy,” he quipped. “But when the time comes for him to step into my shoes, I hope my per­for­mance will haunt him for the rest of his life.” At press time, there was no an­nounce­ment from the show as to whether ei­ther role had been of­fi­cially re­cast.

Fodé and Flynn joked on Twit­ter that they’ll star in a buddy com­edy next.
