Bold and the Beautiful‘s Liam Spencer (Scott Clifton) just made harsh accusations, enraging fans, and it seems even the actor realizes that his character’s awful. Last week, Liam did some really vile things, including wild accusations against his wife – after rolling out of bed with his ex-wife. See what the actor thinks of how his alter-ego’s behaving on the CBS soap opera.
Bold and the Beautiful Spoilers: Liam Spencer’s the Villain Now (and for Awhile?)
It’s hard to imagine that the B&B writers could redeem Thomas Forrester (Matthew Atkinson) after he tried to steal Liam Spencer’s woman last year. For a while now, they’ve had Liam accusing Thomas of being the mastermind behind the baby Beth swap, which is utterly false.
You might recall on Bold and the Beautiful that Thomas came in towards the end to keep the lie going. But he didn’t take Liam and Hope Logan’s (Annika Noelle) baby. And part of his motive to hide the truth was so his sister, Steffy Forrester (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood), wouldn’t be hurt.
These days, Liam Spencer’s gone overboard with accusations, frustrating Hope and Steffy both. Then, he somehow forgot about the Bold and the Beautiful mannequin and decided his wife kissed Thomas. Next, without confirmation of what happened, he slept with Steffy again. Just wow…
B&B Actor Scott Clifton Admits His Character is Abusive Towards Steffy and Hope
If you watch or read Bold and the Beautiful interviews, you might have noticed that Clifton’s no fan of how smug Liam Spencer behaves. He’s said before that Liam is a terrible boyfriend and husband. And now, he admits that it’s even more than just being a lousy partner.
You can see the question below from a Bold and the Beautiful viewer and Clifton’s reply. Someone commented on his great performance but said they hate Liam. Then, they asked if the actor thinks Liam is “emotionally/mentally abusive” to his two baby mamas.
The Bold and the Beautiful actor said, “yes.” And many viewers would have to agree. And this isn’t new. Liam Spencer’s always been a judgy guy who holds people to a higher standard than he sticks to himself. He seems to think that because he’s a vegan tree hugger, he can do no wrong.
Liam’s the Bad Guy Now – Will He Lose Both Steffy & Hope on Bold and the Beautiful?
This week, Liam Spencer’s horrified to find out that he was totally wrong about Hope kissing Thomas. And he was wrong about Thomas plotting and scheming – the other man has a life-threatening brain condition. Plus, Liam seems intent on revealing that he cheated with Steffy.
Bold and the Beautiful fans know that Liam Spencer’s played Steffy off of Hope for years and bounced between them. He carried on an emotional affair with Sally, which made Steffy vulnerable to his predatory dad. Then, when Steffy was recovering from childbirth, he cheated with Hope.
Now, on Bold and the Beautiful, Liam Spencer cheated the other way. Plus, there’s a reported who’s the daddy pregnancy plotline coming with Steffy. The common factor in the pain in these woman’s lives (including Steffy’s descent into addiction) is Liam, the human ping-pong.
In a way, Scott Clifton’s portrayal of Liam Spencer might be the best bad-guy performance the soap’s ever had. What makes him dangerous is that he seems like such a nice guy. But is he the ultimate gaslighter? Even Clifton agrees that the Spencer heir is no Prince Charming.
