Funny You Should Ask
When Annika Noelle ( Hope) is asked by new acquaintances what she does for a living, the actress can’t suppress a smile when she explains Hope’s wild histor y on B& B. “Although, honestly, she’s pretty tame compared to other characters,” Noelle notes. “I wasn’t tied to a chair drenched in honey while a bear was licking me [like Donna was]!” Reflecting on Hope’s past, Noelle loves that she once took a golf club to a set of glass doors at Bill’s mansion, for example, and thinks the blonde’s emotional battle with her own virginity is perhaps one of the more difficult story lines to explain to people unfamiliar with her story line. “She took all those pills because she had so much anxiety about having sex,” she says. “Boy, Brooke really did a number on her!”
Noelle enjoys explaining her alter ego to the uninitiated.
