Up-close & Personal
Though THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL newcomer Annika Noelle (Hope) has had much success in recent years landing TV commercials (for everything from Geico to Dairy Queen), she has also spent years doing the sort of part-time jobs that lend themselves to an aspiring actor’s schedule. “I’ve had all the actor ‘day jobs,’ basically. I’ve been everything from a paralegal to a bar - tender to a restaurant hostess,” explains the actress, who says she actually had an interview for a catering gig scheduled the same day she was called in for a second B&B audition. “The callback ended up running late, so I missed my catering interview,” she recalls. “I thought, ‘Well, hopefully this [soap gig] works out!’ And it did!”
Noelle took a risk to land her role on the soap.
