Who Is Reese Buck­ing­ham?

CBS Soaps In Depth - - INS & OUT -

This Fri­day, Novem­ber 30, Wayne Brady makes his de­but on THE BOLD & THE BEAU­TI­FUL as Zoe’s fa­ther, Dr. Reese Buck­ing­ham. And as a long­time fan of the soap, the LET’S MAKE A DEAL host tells In Depth that he was thrilled to ac­cept the role. “I re­mem­ber watch­ing the first episode of B&B back when my grand­mother and I used to watch ‘her sto­ries,’ as she called them,” he shares.

Nos­tal­gia came flood­ing back for Brady when he ac­com­pa­nied his daugh- ter, Maile ( who plays Emma’s pal, Tif­fany), to the set in Septem­ber. Offhand­edly, he told ex­ec­u­tive pro­ducer and head­writer Bradley Bell that he’d love to get in on the act. “He said, ‘Re­ally?’” Brady re­calls. “A week later, Brad called with a char­ac­ter, a stor y arc — the whole thing.”

Brady de­scribes Reese as an OB/GYN who’s just moved to Los An­ge­les to spend some qual­ity time with his daugh­ter. “He’s an Amer­i­can who [ is di­vorced from Zoe’s Bri­tish mother],” he ex­plains. “Now he’s in town for a fresh start. He hasn’t had the best re­la­tion­ship with Zoe in the past, so he’s here to mend fences.”
