One of THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL’s hottest young stars has taken a brief break from the soap, while a primetime beauty is returning to the genre that gave her her big break!
The In Depth Story: In early December, Adain Bradley (Xander) posted a video to Instagram in which he reported that he had completed his final day of B&B taping for the year and would be taking a few weeks off to shoot his first movie! The young heartthrob has been cast in the indie Butter, a drama about a lonely, obese teenager who pledges to eat himself to death — live on the Internet. Looking back, “it has been a crazy year for me,” summed up the British actor, who joined the show in May. “I just want to tell everybody thank you, and there’s more coming next year, but I’m going to go shoot this movie real quick.” Butter began filming on December 10, but given that B&B started its holiday break on December 21 and actors aren’t expected back until January 14, it’s likely that Bradley’s absence won’t be noticed by viewers. Meanwhile, 30 ROCK alumna Katrina Bowden — who made her TV debut back in 2006 as mean girl Brittney on ONE LIFE TO LIVE — has been cast as B&B’s Flo, who shares a past connection to Wayne Brady’s Reese. Look for the mysterious newcomer’s story to begin on Monday, January 14.
