The Bold and the Beautiful breaking news hints Thorne Forrester (Ingo Rademacher) may exit the CBS soap. Rumor has it Ingo Rademacher is off contract and is now only recurring. What does that mean for Katie Logan (Heather Tom) and her storyline? There is no official confirmation yet, but this could be another case of the soap quietly sidelining an actor to move other stories into center stage.
Bold and the Beautiful – Ingo Rademacher Shares Same Fate As Jacob Young?
We reported that Rick Forrester wouldn’t be around any more months ago. Finally, Jacob Young confirmed it. The actor said he wanted more scenes as Rick, but he’d effectively been written out. He lamented that he wasn’t invited back for big Forrester family moments like weddings and holidays. Maya Avant (Karla Mosley) is back this week and shared she and Rick broke up – and he’s staying out of the country.
That might be what Bold and the Beautiful has planned for Thorne Forrester as well. Ingo Rademacher hasn’t shared any confirmation that he’s been sidelined, but there are signs on his social media. Ingo and his family relocated to LA for him to accept the contract gig on B&B. But on his Instagram, you can see they’re all in Hawaii at his home now. It says it’s for the holiday, but there may be more to it. At this point, we are waiting to see if anyone confirms the initial report made by Soap Opera News.
Ingo Rademacher Back Home in Hawaii for Months!
We may have already watched Thorne’s last scenes on Bold and the Beautiful for a while. Ingo Rademacher posted at the end of October on IG that he’s glad to be back in Hawaii. And all his social posts since then have been in the islands he calls home. You can see in the holiday promo below that there is no Thorne in sight.
If Ingo wasn’t present to film the annual Forrester Christmas dinner, surely they will offer an explanation on the soap. Perhaps Katie will be absent as well and they can call it a late honeymoon… There is no telling what will happen. The soap frequently rotates characters and pushes others out of the way since the air time is just 15 minutes. Maybe Thorne and Katie will be back eventually after the Taylor drama ends.
New Thorne Didn’t Resonate with B&B Fans
Many Bold and the Beautiful fans never took to Ingo in the recast role. When CBS hired the ex-General Hospital actor for the recast, many viewers complained at the ousting of Winsor Harmon. He was always a fan-favorite in the role and had a troubled personal life since leaving the role of Thorne. There are no comments on social media from either Harmon or Rademacher so far.
CBS has an official policy that it doesn’t comment on any leaks from set. They won’t even confirm an exit when the actor has confirmed it. So we should not expect any announcement from CBS daytime about this news. There’s already plenty of drama there with the news today that Mal Young was fired as showrunner of The Young and the Restless.
What do you think? Poor Katie Logan always seems to be unlucky in love. Will they write out Thorne and leave her single again? Or will the B&B write him a lowkey exit to do business in Paris and bring him back now and then? Wait and see!
