The Bold and the Beautiful spoilers reveal a shocking casting reveal. A few weeks ago, news broke that Nia Sioux, the tripe-threat singer, dancer, and TV star that gained fame on Dance Moms, would have a cameo as a Forrester Creations intern named Emma. This is her first scripted role after being on reality TV since she was nine years old. Nia Sioux so impressed showrunner Brad Bell that he offered her an upgrade from guest spot to contract player and she accepted.

From Dance Moms to Bold and Beautiful Soap Star!
Nia started on Dance Moms when she was just nine and grew up in front of reality show cameras. She dealt with intense pressure from her coach Abby Lee Miller so life on the soap set should be no challenge for this ingenue. While Bold and the Beautiful is her first scripted TV role, the 16-year old was in a TV movie for the USA network called Runnin’ From My Roots. It came out earlier this year. Nia played a church girl that makes friends with a disgraced country singer who leaves Nashville to find her true self.
Starting today, Monday, April 23, we’ll see Nia Sioux as Forrester intern Emma. She’ll play alongside returning guest teen actor (and real-life royalty) Prince Achileas of Greece. While the handsome prince won’t be staying, Nia nabbed a contract role so we’ll see lots of her soon. This is a week of strange casting announcements as Bold and the Beautiful spoilers reveal.

How will Bill handle being Steffy’s second choice when she gives up on Liam and settles for him?
B&B Spoilers – Nia Sioux Thrilled
In a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly, Nia enthused about the new role on B&B. She said, “Emma is the new intern and she loves fashion and is in love with Forrester Creations. I really connected with the character.” While this is exciting news for the young actress, it begs the question of what’s going on over at Bold and the Beautiful. Spoilers revealed last week that Jacob Young had been dropped to recurring as Rick Forrester (but he was NOT fired despite claims by one rumor site).
Liam makes his choice this week on Bold – which lady is crushed?
With Karla Mosley expecting and playing trans-woman Maya Avant, they can’t write her pregnancy into the show. Is Karla at risk as well? Reign Edwards hasn’t been seen in a long time either. With no Maya and Nicole, that also means no Avants. That shift drastically reduces the presence of people of color on the CBS soap. While Nia’s casting brings more diversity, B&B fans wonder what will she be doing. Teen RJ Forrester (Anthony Turpel) was just dropped to recurring, so there are no romantic prospects there.
It will certainly be interesting to see what Bold has planned for this extraordinary young actress. Will Bold tap Nia’s singing and dancing talents? The Soap Dirt crew congratulates Nia Sioux on her new contract role – we can’t wait to see her shine!
