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.
